Sure, the new frostbite engine seems superior to cryengine 3 but the main difference is that BF3 is developed using the PC as the lead platform and then scaled down to fit console specs while crysis 2 is the complete opposite, developed for consoles and now got these added features for the PC. Too little too late though as far too many console textures remain and the highres patch makes the remaining subpar texturing stand out even more.
Reminds me of UT3 that looked really nice sometimes but absolutely awful aswell, with flat lowres textures and a very limited colorpalette.
