The graphics aren't overdone like every developer seems they have to be since graphic cards are getting towards 200 billion transistors. The backround is at least a subdued color, I can't stand insane colors in a game just because they can be, are obligated to be. I'm not a big fan of speeded up gameplay either. Games today have everyone seemingly playing on crack as far as movement goes. That's why some games are getting remastered. It's like, fps games today have to over jazz to justify your buying the latest video card every 2 years. That's now how it has to be, unfortunately. Onward and upward to a ridiculous degree. I'm glad to have lived and played during the golden years of PC games, before it hit a wall and graphics became king.
