BTW, is anyone finding the maps sorta lackluster? They all kindda flow together for me, and nothing really sticks out... at least in BC2, maps had unique features and you could distinguish from from the other... I am not talking about map design, just the overall presentation. I am loving the fact the maps are "wider", so you can flank more...

Theres some nice ones, and then theres the ones that just piss you off royal. Those maps like metro and the other one I cant remember, where you all get funneled down these little corridors. Those are so unfun. One idiot camping with a LMG with a bipod can mow down 10 to 1 with little to no chance of the 10 killing him.

Shame you cannot fly it but it's still a cool part though. The water isn't animated very well, Crysis water is much better(same as on the carrier).

The point is that the PC version is running a lot more effects than the console version and yes if you just use MSAA alone it would probably make the consoles unplayable, so that gives you a clue. Factors are:

Resolution
HBAO
MSAA
FXAA

These things alone would probably require the console to be 3-4 times faster and this is excluding the other options on medium, high or ultra(consoles are on low).

The worlds most stupid quicktime events. Ok so now I am building hopping in a way that you arn't supposed to building hop. With 3 stupid people in my squad whos idea to ferret out a sniper.. is to wave your hands in the air all at once.

... oh and the mission failed when one of them got SHOT.

Ok so we jump down and hey look.. more people to kill! lots more people to kill! whats that? defensive point on the bridge with a big gun? sure no prob whoa whoa whoa.. wheres all my defensive metal plates going? 5 deaths later I pickup the gun and then book it back to the stairs, hoping the game dosn't fail me cause my retarded teamate took it upon him self to play bullet dodge in the middle of the bridge. After doing my best and failing to kill alot of people even though I am firing this big ass gun with the precision of a sniper rifle.. the next way point comes up...aaand..earthquake.

Earthquake? Earthquake in my middle eastern wargame? wtf?! And then I do a triple wtf when I wake up and the THIRD WORLD COUNTRY HAS THE GOD DAMN CITY LIT UP LIKE DISNEY WORLD! Last I chekced when an earthquake levels buildings, you probably aren't going to have power and stringing up lights every 5 feet... nore is the local army regeme going to be out hunting for lonely american soldiers.

Ok thats enough of that... ontop of all this the graphics are pretty washed out.. heavy use of HDR lighting causing that... oh and mother of god what is that dust on the screen effect! As someone who wears glasses... this pissed me off to no end... its like..crap.. on me screen.. for the whole game. even in doors!

I am selling this game FN cheap! I don't care if the multi play is pretty good.. I'll prolly enjoy planetside2/tribes 8x better when they come out. MW3 might even have multi play worth 2 cents. Atleast I expect a much much better single player campaign.
I don't mean to laugh but what the hell were you thinking buying this game for the SP? On top of that you complain about it. If you bought this game for the SP you should not be complaining. Now check your mancard in at the receptionist on your way out.

I'm trying to figure out why in the single play I get over 100 fps but on some servers I can't even get 40 fps. I think there's a lot of server side lag and fps problems.
