    Is there any way to change the view, so that I'm not looking at myself, but rather as if I'm looking out of my eyes....In Oblivion, you had the choice of either view, but I can't find a way to change it in this game...:confused:

    I don't think there's any way to change the view mate - I've played about 45 hours and haven't found one, anyway. That said, I never read the instruction manual, so there might be something about it in there...:D

    Never found one either, but switching off "film grain" in the options made a massive difference to the graphics - why it's switched on by default is a mystery...

    I quite like it turned on - I find it very stark and sharp without the film grain.

    I always found everything was too crisp and clean without the film grain on. It's perhaps not as noticeable in the general view but when the action starts and you zoom in a bit to aim or use the sniper rifle the enemies somehow don't look "real" enough without it on.

    I really liked the filmic atmosphere it helped create.

    I think you need your eyes checked matey - when i look about i dont see grain everywhere (half-serious / half ;) ).

    But i know what people mean by "too shiny", however i think thats a product of devs overblowing the "next gen" graphic filters. Once everyone has got used to their shiny new toys they might calm down and start using lighting more subtly, and hence realistically. I dont think you need blurring to make up for anti-aliasing, or grain to "mke it real" if the devs hadnt gone wild with the HDR and reflections to start with...

    I turned film grain off and then immediately turned it back on again. I'm afraid I think the opposite to you here it seems!

    another way to make the 3rd person view a little more pleasing on the eye is to play with a female character...;)

    just be careful when modifying the facial features, I accidentally ended up with Jane out of Eastenders... :eek:
