This is purely an observation of the graphics in BI, nothing to do with the gameplay. I don't know what it is with the graphics here, but they just feel totally flat. People are well detailed, but there is something non-immersive about the whole experience. Look at bushes, for example, made up of poorly swaying - in a non-existent breeze - set of 2D shapes. Walking through water gives no realistic impression at all. Wade your way through, and there is no sign whatsoever of ripples or splashing - nothing. In fact, movement in general has a totally unreal feel to it. It's like you are floating on a cushion of air through the environment - maybe you are! - rather than walking or running. Look at the crates of fruit and veg (or anything else) in the market stalls. They are like a flat graphic, no impression of individual objects at all. Maybe I'm missing something here, but compared to other games, e.g. Deus Ex, Witcher 2, Arkham City, etc., these graphics are very disappointing. Strange because I seem to recall - and it's been a few years since I last played them - that the first 2 Bioshocks had excellent graphics. I have settings on max, BTW.
