You will see their cover photo of Sam about to do an inverted take down as seen in the trailer.

Wanted to get everyone's opinion - does this add to the beauty of the environment or take away from it, does it add realism or is it like looking through spotty glasses every time you look into the light, does this affect game play visibility (constantly fighting camera angles) or not.
I guess I just want to understand this type of "art" (I know what it is but just don't understand the desire to have it) - the videos shown to us for the first 6 months were crystal clear, colorful, and gorgeous (E3 Killing in Motion, Ghost Demo, Non-Lethal Takedown, etc..) and then ever since the "Behind the Lens" video, there has been three very pronounced effects:
1. Lens Flare
2. Spots on the Lens
3. Milky Haze (shown in between the spots)
I just can't get my head wrapped around two things:
1. How is this aesthetically pleasant to look at all the time when you know underneath all of this, there is a crystal clear, detailed, colorful environment you can be enjoying after dealing with a Black & White filter for so long in Conviction - wouldn't this become annoying quickly?
2. How will this not seriously affect game play when you are trying to survey an area especially when you are a Ghost player. This is not as much of a problem if you are constantly moving (Assault, Panther) but as a ghost purist who doesn't use distractions, I can see this being a serious issue.
I know I could use my goggles but I don't want to be playing in Black and White again - I don't use goggles or gadgets in Conviction.
I just wanted to get some views on how you guys see it and if you think it will be an issue and if so how you will deal with it (preferably not by shooting off lights).
Thanks in advance for any input.
Note: Going back, the other videos did have have subtle lens effect applied but not near as pronounced as what is seen in this picture and the Art Direction video. I hope they have an option to turn it off or at least sliders to tone it down.
Only stealth matters...
