Is shadow mapping supposed to look this horrible?

Windows 10
Latest AMD Drivers

Since I've been working with MG again, I thought the shadows looked really screwed up. However, I didn't realize how badly until I switched from shadow mapping to shadow projection.

With shadow mapping on, units are darkened as if there's a shadow on all of them. There's also extremely annoying shadow flickering everywhere. On top of this, the old "negative shadows" problem is still around.
