The APEX turbulence effects look unrealistic and distracting, but the debris effect looks pretty cool, IMO. Yeah, probably not the best to have ton of extra shit on the screen during a MP game though. But I don't get your hate for the tech in general. Why do you think it looks so bad, and how could it be better?
It's frustrating not to have a single player game to play through either Hawken or Mechwarrior where you could turn all this shit on and enjoy it.
