Hi everyone,

I wrote a short article expressing my concerns on the way visual effects used in Battlefield 3 are negatively influencing (multiplayer) gameplay and aesthetics. Unfortunately I can't post the whole deal here because it's over 3700 words so I'll just link the EA UK forum thread for you to read.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think, thanks.

Good post, I agree 100%. The atmospheric effects are too overpowering and distracting and most of the time completely wash away the contrast between different colors.

Remember the goal of this game's visual effects: to do what other game's can't, over-emphesized atmospheric effects being one of them.

You make good points but none of this annoys me near as much as the HUD clutter. How are we supposed to shoot the enemy when there are fluro icons EVERYWHERE you look.

Battlefield 3 would be much less of a strain to the eyes if this was implemented. It shouldn't take too long, and it would improve the game's look by ALOT.
Don't bring up things like KDR and SPM when it's not relevant, because you've lost the argument the moment you do so.

Oh wow that's real mature. What was wrong with his post/thread anyway? It's nothing like 90% of the constant spam/troll threads on the forum. Anything constructive and logical on this forum get's bashed by kids. The moderator's need to start rolling out the ban hammer.

Wtf dude this guy worked so hard to point out the flaws and all you can comment is this?
You are probably the type of people who are satisfied with a shit game with super duper fancy smancy graphics, as long as it is cool and there is a lot of action.

This man has very good points and deserves to be read.
