    Anisotropic filtering is a method of enhancing the image quality of textures on surfaces that are far away and steeply angled with respect to the camera.
    So you see those distant objects like skyline ...trees in FARCRY. Well they are not blurred when Anisotropic filtering is on. Both ATI and nVidia use it in different forms.
    Even Anisotropic filtering greatly enhances the details we see in the objects.
