I don't get it why people are saying the game is unoptimized.

I started playing at 1620p, disabled 2x MSAA & Post FX -> Medium. I still get 40-50fps and its using only 950mb vram at best. Its very well coded. I can't see Crysis 2 or 1 being so well optimized, and imagine 3 to be broken twice as much.

Also its preferable to use 4xmsaa because the 8xmsaa dont worth the cost and dont give much better quality.

A good eye may see some differences between 2xmssa and 4xmsaa otherwise for the best performance/quality 2xmsaa is the optimal

IMO, Far Cry 3 looks better than Crysis biggrin.gif
Game play is about the same speed! My toon is nice and fast thumb.gif
Aiming is good as it gets!
And my only gripe about the game is crouch is toggle, and aim isn't toggle redface.gif

Yeah far cry 3 has way better art style in my eyes than crysis and it looks better. You can use crouch without the toggle button biggrin.gif

I was just playing a bit, I just explored the island for like 2 hours, The visuals are amazing when the sun is setting, I think I agree with ACHILEE5, the game does look better than Crysis and Im a huge Crysis fan.

I've come across a few visual bugs and issues where frame rate drops to 30's for some reason(Very much like the decal issue, that has now been resolved:D), im sure Nvida and Ubi will fix this very soon.

Yeah, I love Crysis as much as the next man!
But this game is the mut's nuts thumb.gif

I was just bodding about and came across a fire fight, and so stopped to help!
I was doing OK, and then got attacked by some lizards biggrin.gif

Every thing wants to kill me tongue.gif

if you saw it in dx11 (not in a video) you would feel like you needed to replace that grandma card thumb.gif but yea its very pretty in dx9 also.

Also if anyone is wondering, the key to the animal hunter quests is to have a bunch of animal repellent syringes. Makes it so easy.

I saw a couple of games running maxed out DX 11 with my friend's supercomputers, not this one specifically..(yet) but many others.

As prettier as it all does look, It's never game-changing for me. I always get sucked into the gameplay of games and never really notice those details once I am actually playing and stop trying to compare.

I'd love to upgrade, but as long as my GTS 250 is still alive and kicking I cant really justify it. I'm hoping when the new consoles release it will finally force my hand wink.gif The difference just is not big enough to me.
