There's something about Crysis 1 in DX10.. even when my framerate drops to 18 FPS, the game seems to give an illusion that it ain't that low as opposed to playing CoD, Dead Space 2, Singularity and AC2.

Might it be their engine or just their motion blur giving "that" illusion?

Just my experience anyway.

minimum requirements for crysis 1:

- OS - Windows XP or Windows Vista
- Processor - pentium 4 2.8 GHz or faster (XP) or 3.2 GHz or faster* (Vista) or amd equivalent
- Memory - 1.0 GB RAM (XP) or 1.5 GB RAM (Vista)
- Video Card -256 MB 6800gt or better
- Hard Drive - 12GB
- Sound Card - DirectX 9.0c compatible

if you used this hardware in crysis 1 you would get about 10 fps at 800x600 at lowest settings.

minimum requirements for crysis 2:

- Internet connection to play the game, to install and get online
- OS: XP / Vista / Windows 7
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 2 GHz or higher
- GPU : Nvidia 8800 GT 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 3850 512 MB of RAM or better
- 2 GB RAM
- Hard Drive: 9 GB
- DVD ROM: 8x
- Audio: DirectX 9.0c compatible
- Keyboard, Mouse or Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

It will only make sense for the performance of the minimum requirements for crysis 1 to perform like the minimum requirements for crysis 2. Expect to get poor frames if you use the minimum requirements for crysis 2.

I am not saying that other predictions on performance using the minimum requirements of crysis 2 to be invalid, i am just saying what seems to be the most logical.

Also, the only reason why consoles can even run the game with decent settings, is from extreme amounts of optimization, since the hardware in them are basically unchanged (except like the hdd and such) which allows more optimization to come into play. With all the different gpus and cpus and hardware that our computers have, optimization is a lot harder.

and i would agree with you that would make sense..but the fact remains the engine looks almost indentical if not a little worse (im guessing due to optimizations)..so my opinion still stands

We don't know what minimum for crysis looks like compared to High...or maxed out!

nope. The requirements are just "too high". lol

not entirely. As you pointed out, you get piss poor framerates from the game if you used the minimum requirements. So bad, one would consider the game unplayable.

If you consider that as devs develop more games, they usually get better at marketing and revealing details about their game even if their games themselves don't improve. I can't see why minimum requirements would make an exception. Those minimum requirements might be able to play the game on medium at a decent resolution just fine. Infact, I'm willing to bet a pretty good sum of money that's the case. We can only speculate and bet at this point without having the game first.
