[GAMERZZ] NVIDIA shows Crysis 2 DX11 features at Computex Taipei 2011 - Page 6

post #51 of 168
Crysis 2 without DX11 was mostly for people that wanted to play MP and SP because they liked Crysis for what it is. Most people here used Crysis to show their GPU power because in reality no other game can give you more self satisfaction then high fps in Crysis. Knowing Crysis had best graphics for 3+ years having the patch 6 months latter is no big deal because we will still get it for future GPUs. Right now games are so very little demanding and unless you have 1440p/1600p LCD or Multi LCD setups, multi GPU for 1080p is not needed. Crysis in the other had can bring Multie GPUs back to low resolutions.

Fine I guess. But first off Crytek NEVER promised DX11 AT LAUNCH, and second better late than never......

No... They just showed off lots and lots of demos of features in Cryengine 3. And since Cryengine 3 is used in Crysis 2, that leads to the assumption that those features would be in Crysis 2. Not technically lying, but intentionally misleading. Plus them saying Crysis 2 would have a separate development team for the PC version... Then "Press START to play". Yeah, nice separate development there. And then all the hype with Nvidia releasing the GTX590 to sync up with its release, like you'd need a GTX590 for it.

Then what do we get? A game with technically worse graphics that runs slower despite looking worse than the original because it was ported from the 360. And yes, it does look worse. Non-volumetric particles, non-deferred lighting, crappy textures, and most of the "Hey, look at the graphics!!" moments were done with 3D skyboxing. The only reason it can be mistaken for looking better is because of the more visually interesting setting and better art direction. And yes, better art direction is a good thing, but that doesn't excuse them for giving us a game with less features and graphical quality than the first iteration!

PC gamers were misled, plain and simple. Doesn't matter if the game is ok (I played the multiplayer. It's not ok. Like Halo with the fun sucked out). We were still lied to. If you're fine with giving your money to these frauds anyway then more power to ya'.

And I'm ashamed to even know people who pirated the game. Because that gives it more exposure, which it frankly doesn't deserve at this point.





And patching all this stuff in months later when it should have been present from the start? Not good enough. You blew it. Bye-bye. Better luck next time. I'm not spending a cent, not even on the bandwidth needed to pirate the piece of crap.

That's all I can say, they talked this game up way too much, and well the end result was just another mediocre game. It may have been better than many ports, but it wasn't far from the pack.
GG, crytek

This doesn't change the fact that the game is a console ported piece of garbage that departs from the first game in almost every way. I want my strength and speed modes, and I want my open-ended environments. Crysis 2, even with DirectX 11 support, is an insult to people who actually liked the tactical complexity of the first game. Changing minor details of the graphical properties doesn't change a damn thing.

And DirectX never really meant anything to me from the get-go. The Witcher 2 is rendered in DX9 and looks brilliant. Haven't heard one complaint about it. And Crysis 1 was rendered in DX10, and guess what? Nobody complains about that either.

The game simply doesn't look good enough and doesn't perform well enough. It's not even about DX11 support for me, it's the game. And it was a flop.

You deserve rep for this post. Seriously. You hit every single point squarely on the head. Thank you. smile.gif

Are you sure?confused.gif The water in crysis 2 looked hideous compared to the original.

Anyway, I'll reserve my judgement when they have released the patch but it's been what? 4 months since the release date?

This is why I'll never go back to ATi/AMD. Nvidia is always there to keep the PC community informed about the latest offerings. Besides that, their drivers and SLi support is better. ATi/AMD are always behind and show nothing. I don't care if their cards are the best bang for the buck. Nvidia still has the lead.
