well they do seem a bit lame imho on the other hand I appreciate the low tech approach, so to speak, because it's less lag for my machine, even if the niftier, shinier effects (like in other games) have a greater "cool" factor. So I'd rather have it than not, myself. I dunno exactly where the boundaries of effects are, according to the actual game, not just my subjective estimates, so I'd rather not comment on the whole circle vs square.
