theres always a problem with games that are released to be visually amazing; any trailer thats released, i just look through thinking, yeah its pretty, but that could be better, and so could that, that was a bit weird etc.
also it detracts from the gameplay on show. luckily for us, bf4 has adopted the CoD level of innovation, which basically amounts to shoot brown men in a different place now.
so not overly enthused then.

I think that using this engine on games like Mass effect and Dragon age 3 will make them graphics much more enjoyable. I remember the first time I played Mass effect 3 and thought the graphics were amazing, the level of detail in the characters and the surrounding area was just brilliant, so to bring in an engine which will improve on that is a great idea.

For me the graphics play a big part of playing a game, they help make the story and conversations come alive, and just make the game more enjoyable. The only fear that comes with this new engine is that whilst they are focusing more on the graphics, less will be put into the story of the game or the game as a whole will be less due to the main focus being on graphics.
