I did play Space Marine and it's nowhere near as bad as Sleeping Dogs. SD doesn't even have any form of AF while we're at it, and while NVidia users can force it through drivers (it works, tested myself), AMD users are essentially ****ed, because even "forcing" it apparently doesn't work on AMD cards. As for HQ, I tested a couple of flags in Risen 1, and Left 4 Dead one kind of works, but flickers on/off when standing near torches and is also visible through fog so I decided not to use it. But I tested Performance/Q/HQ in it and HQ has stronger effect. Grass literally became almost pitch black with HQ on, but at the same time the shading was a lot sharper and cleaner so to speak. A box gave off a visually sharp square-shaped AO, with Quality it was blurrier and more rounded (and grass wasn't as dark, but still dark). Performance was all kinds of bad though, I really don't recommend using it. Better to not have something, than have **** quality. At least that's my motto that I apply to all things in life. Whiplashwang, have you tried the Assassin's Creed 1 flag?
