Boycott Crysis - Page 4  

post #31 of 37
I think I'm actually gonna go out and buy Crysis now. I'll make sure to think about you while playing it with high detail at a nice framerate.

Did anyone else find that the Koreans in Nano-Suits were pretty piss-weak as well. I thought that they would be really hard bosses, but they all died with either 1 or 2 Guass rounds to the head, or a clip of incendiary ammo.

I still found it to be an awesome game, and the views are simply breathtaking.
I can only run it playably on medium, but even still, It's other games " Very High" settings, so it's awesome.

Btw, some people can run it on very high playably, haven't you ever been to Nvidia's SLI zone. Some people running 3x 8800 GTX's or3x 9800 GX2's can get over 60 FPS. (Reportedly, but I believe the site is valid)

I would like to continue with the Trilogy, and get the next parallel installment of CRYSIS: Warhead, but I will wait to see what it demands, what it costs, and well it is received.

(I saw way more positives for CRYSIS than negatives, the main being that most people can't play it.)

If you think it is coded so badly, why don't you put out a version that IS coded better, and that "works". Yeah, that's what I thought!

Don't Get me wrong, I can see your disappointment in the game, with all the hype that surrounded it, you were simply let down...

But I don't see how Crytek is to blame. They made an awesome game, the best looking game out so far. The reason most people have trouble playing it is because Crytek had the FUTURE in mind.
Most games that are made for "todays" PC's are, well, crap in about 4 months, there's something better out, etc...
With Crysis, the only thing that will be better in the next 4 months is Crysis 2.
This way, Crysis will still be an awesome playable game for the next YEAR or so, and won't be superseded easily.
And by then, most people will have better computers that are equipped to play Crysis.

I might just play it for my 5th time now, tnx for reminding me how awesome it is!!!
Note how I think that is his only post in this thread. The AI aren't bad considering Nomad has a Nanosuit and tons of weapons for him to use.

Weak AI? Maybe its just that headshots are so deadly? In CoD4 2 pistol bodyshots kill. In Max Armour it takes a few more RIFLE shots.

But I have to agree with you, its a well coded game with multithread and vast jungles etc..

For the nth time, Crysis isn't poorly coded.

Crysis is unlike any other game out there in that you can explore every part of the map with no loading in between, the excellent graphics and the amount of objects rendered at any given time is going to slow the FPS down...no amount of "code optimization" is going to help that. Is Crysis ahead of it time? Maybe, but I wouldn't go as far to say its poorly coded because my system cannot run it.
It is rushed and coded inefficiently.

Look at all the errors in the console on a map load.
Look at all the graphics and physics giltches.
Look at the inconsistant performance.
Look at the bugged AA levels. (Go too high and they just wont work)
75% Of online players are free to cheat
Slow texture loading in some situations
Rubbish Artificial Intelligence

The CryEngine 2 wasn't even intended as a game engine. It was for high quality rendering of 3D modelling and architecture. NOT for fast paced games with loads of trees and explosions.

Fair enough, they have tried to adapt the engine and done a half decent job. BUT! there is still more that needs to be done about getting it to work without error and run well on PC's which are not powered by small coldfusion reactors.

The only thing that Crytek have done is set a new milestone of graphics technology.

CASE CLOSED

P.S.
Don't say any trash like "OMG because your rig can't handle it to me". I have had SLI 8800GTX's, TRI SLI 8800GTX's and am now on SLI 9800GTX's.

It wouldn't surprise me if the lack of Crysis performance is a nasty plan created in conjunction with Nvidia to force people to buy the new most powerful and expensive cards.

Lol at your sig rig!

3.6Ghz with 1.52v and you are cooling it with an Ultima 90!

No way have you done any length of Small FFT's.

Seriously man, it's real. I can't believe it myself. I completley screwed up my thermal paste application and I somehow got brilliant temperatures.

But this is off topic - if you still can't believe i've done it, then PM me if you want more info.
