How are you graphical settings in the game. I believe draw distance is the one you should raise to get better visibility.

hmm i have a 9800 gtx+ sli
i think i set all the settings up highest then put aa x16 and filtering up max in profile.
I guess i'll take another look at it.
I just see a bunch of flickering when there are walls or signs in the distance. or "shimmering"

edit:
yeah everything max except shadows.

Fixed it

had to go back to 185.85 drivers for nvidia.
the newer ones weren't taking the aa settings for some reason.
so im using nhancer now to customize aa and tf

it was a driver problem.
It wasn't allowing me to set aa so all the lines distant kept "shimmering".
Once I downgraded my drivers and messed with nHancer I now have smoother lines and less "shimmering"

Having an unnaturally high fov (say, higher than 35) also makes thing appear smaller and further away than they would be in real life.
