I don't think it's so much the look, but the fact that it DOES increase motion resolution a bit without any sort of Soap Opera Effect.
I sometimes use the BFI when playing non-twitch video games like turn based RPGs. (Final Fantasy series excluding XII and XIV.)
There is a definite improvement in how clear the action looks. An easy way to also tell the difference is to play a fighting game like SFIV and just go to training mode. Walk back and forth with a character or do a front or back flip. Without Motion Interpolation or BFI, it's a bit blurry on LCDs due to their native motion resolution of about 350. Using BFI, you can make out the face and how clear the fighters look in motion easier. Motion Interpolation also helps out, but adds too much input lag.
This is why the people are getting so excited by those new 3D Lightboost 2 monitors. You can force the monitors to scan the backlight which increases motion resolution in even 2D games.. Supposedly even matching or beating CRT motion without adding any input lag. Thread about it in the FP tech section of this forum.
