Look like the bullshots? It is close I guess but it has a hazy blurry look to it. Wonder what effect that is and if it can be turned off. FarCry2 has a very similar effect.

Well here is with HDR on and off. Looks more like a blur sepia filter than HDR.

Off

Change to custom and turn off blur and HDR.

On the non gameplay side.....

Some definite pluses to this game:
FSAA works.
No DVD needed in drive.
No Live or jump through hoops DRM crap.
It's stable as a rock not even hinting at crashing.
No graphic glitches anywhere that I've seen.


Sadly lots of minuses also:

Insanely unexplainable poor performance.
Only 360 gamepad can be used.
Missing resolutions.(fixed by Hack program someone made)

actually i now think about it a little and it is about graphics too. thats why i got a GTX280 and an 8800GT before that and so on as i want the best graphics and nice looking eye candy

if i wasnt bothered about graphics id just get an xbox 360 which is half the cost of a 280

Have you seen it on the 360? LOL I had it, it looks better on the PC.

Are you for real?

Come to my place. After I'm done with Noriega's sweet ass, I'll show you how fun Saints is on 360 AND PS3.
