Super high contrast, lacking colours, blue tint, lensflare all over the place, bloom and flashlights, whose powers are equal to that of the sun.

Great thread reads, especially part two of the "Should look like this" where there is a break down of the graphics used. The graphics themselves really are quite nice, and the textures are wonderful but as LowerContrast pointed out..are washed away by the bloom, flares and color filters, if the game looked like the second picture I would be praising it a great deal..as it stands we are left with the first. http://i.imgur.com/MQcVF.jpg
I think this sums it up very nicely. http://i.imgur.com/Cp4TM.jpg
If you are looking for constructive criticism then okay.. the environments are very nicely put together and richly populated with all sorts of objects that lend to the beauty of the landscape or urban environments, even the construction zones look superb and I loved running through the tunnels but thanks to all of the over dolling it more often than not blends into this flashy blob of miscoloration that detracts from the scene, fancier is not better.
As per the trolling..well hey next time they release a back to karkand video and the focus is that the older map has been faithfully recreated for the new game such as exploring familiar flag sites (the transformer station or mosque for example) rather than EXPLOSIONS IN YOUR FACE ALL THE TIME then I won't be such a prick about it .

And then you get everyone saying "OMG why doesn't every game look this good"?! It's all about the crappy post-processing.
