Alright, lets play your game. Lets replace the word optimized to the word unpolished. Crysis has a ton of bugs. Annoying bugs that you can't get by without noticing. The type of bugs that cause you to save the game often on different slots in case you run into one of those bugs that don't let you keep going. To make matters worse they canceled the third patch.

I for one still plan to get Warhead. I enjoy playing Crysis and just doing pointless things. The graphics are good enough to keep me playing it despite all of the bugs I have seen.

You want proof of Cyrsis not being optimized properly? Here's a quick example: Company "A" designs a game that's "above all others" in graphics, AI and what not. Company "B" designs a game that is a bit lower in the graphics but is able to play on almost every up to date PC on market on high and ultra-high settings. Move forward a few weeks after release. Now Company "A"'s game starts getting large numbers of unhappy customers, but wow the graphics sure are pretty but there are still constant crashes, characters falling thru floors, glitches left and right. Company "B"'s game while not as pretty gets rave reviews and customers want more. The only thing people want from Company "A"'s game is patches to fix whatever is constantly making it crash, but of course patches to fix the issues are slow coming.

What could be the problem here? Did Company "A" rush the release of the ultimate game or is so uber awesome no one's PC can handle it? The simplest and more logical answer is the game was rushed and not tested properly before release. Now I understand that just is impossible to comprehend, but I bet it's the truth.

Now let's move on to Company "B". While the game has it's issues and what not, the buying public are generally happy with the game and really want more add-ons than patches. What ever problems the game is having is mostly over looked. The company realizes this and makes a patch to solve the issues and in a timely manner plus creating new add-on content that the players love.

Ok, so now did Company "B" take their time and test the game before release or were they just lucky the game worked well on gamers PC's? The simplest and more logical answer is the game was properly tested and not rushed like Company "A" game. The point of Company "A" being so ultimately uber awesome is not the question, but rather why did it run so poorly on any PC is was installed on? Be it low end or a high end gaming rig?

If it was optimized properly it would have work well on a low end or high end system given proper graphic settings, but it did not. The problem isn't how pretty the game looks, but why are people running high end video cards not getting the most out of the game? Why are new video cards released months after Company "A" game was released still not able to max out the settings? The simplest and more logical answer ..... the game was not properly optimized. is really that hard to understand?

1. to make as effective, perfect, or useful as possible.
2. to make the best of.
3. Computers. to write or rewrite (the instructions in a program) so as to maximize efficiency and speed in retrieval, storage, or execution.
Excellent post that accurately and objectively describes the situation. Well done.

My friend, you are correct. Just because something takes a buttload of horsepower to run doesn't mean it is not optimized.
That is called high-requirements.

However, optimization means that the program will use every last iota of computing power at its disposal.
It will calculate all the physics required, but not more.
Providing the FPS and "perceived" polygons. (Pre-rendered will save computing power)


Simply put, optimization is using all processing power to get the most perceived realism to the player.


Rendering a single blade of grass the the billionth polygon is wasteful if it's not even on the screen.

There are amny games out there that will not run nice in my PC but crysis is not one of them. I get 20-25 Fps everything medium @ 1024*768. I just know that whatever fps you get in crysis you have to mutlpy it by 2 to compare it to other games for ex. COD4 at 25 fps is horrible.
