Now I could live with that!

Just activate it like Windows OS and leave it alone! It's getting a little old having to connect to Steam or Windows live just to play a game ... Sheesh!

The gameplay became more COD - ish type of shooter, with script scenes, humanoidal aliens, explosions and overly - dramatic voice over, as opposed to free roam gameplay.

Maybe it's for the best a lot of people here on OCN don't like free roam sandbox games, and they were bashing Crysis 1 gameplay.

I don't think it will be nearly as demanding as people think, because there won't be acres of foliage to render, games in city environments usually tend to run really well.

The hat.
How about no.

Your initial comment was stupid, but your second one wasn't any better.

They are the minimum specs, which means the settings would be turned down for an 8800GT.

A 8800GT now is like the 6800GT they had on min specs for original Crysis.

Tho you could still open and play it with a 6200TC, 640x480 everything set on Low.

I don't think it will be nearly as demanding as people think, because there won't be acres of foliage to render, games in city environments usually tend to run really well.
the gameplay looks nothing like call of duty. cod is neither sandbox, nor does it have the vertical depth that crysis 2 has. even if all you played was the demo for xbox, you still have no idea how big this game will be or how much detail will be derived from it maxed out. metro was a beautiful/demanding game and that lacked foliage. trees don't mean "demanding". i think you also said it was "just a city block". i honestly don't know exactly how large the map will be but i doubt it will feel like just a city block.

also i read the game was made with one or two 580s. why use all that power just to make the game max out with a gtx 460? expect very high to be demanding and worth playing at again.

alot of people bashed crysis 1 cause it wasn't very well optimized, they couldn't play it maxed out with their current gpu(s), they never got to understand the suit, or they didn't like aliens. few hated the fact that you could go anywhere and beat a mission however you wanted.

I'm pretty sure the 8800GT will play this game above low settings comfortably.

It isn't a bad card at all, even by today's standards.

I mean, you see newer gen cards coming out with less shading power than the 8800GT (GT 240, GT 440).

a 6850 is nearly twice as fast and is under 200USD.

Continuing to lower requirements isn't a bad thing per say. It just means I'll have to find something else to stress my GTX 580 with
