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.
