It was a direct port of the updated 360 demo .This game looks fantastic even though it is DX9. Sure if you walk up close and you really probe the environment it looks worse than Crysis 1, but hell you guys don't complain about the extremely !@#$ graphics of other games. The gameplay is a million times better. A few years ago everyone hated Crysis because they couldn't play it on highest and not very many people enjoyed the gameplay. Now you are complaining about graphics? Stop looking for faults in the game and actually try to enjoy it.
Crytek have done a great job with improving the "fun" aspect in Crysis 2. Admit it, the gameplay is awesome. The story looks good and the graphics (when not viewed in absolute probing detail) actually look pretty good. The sound quality is brilliant. I realize that everyone feels a little disappointed about the lack of quality they put into the demo, but give the game a chance. Crytek have been known to surprise everyone. Let the stupid consoles have their little victory, but don't let your hatred for them kill this excellently designed game.
Sure the graphics won't be what we expected, but we have Battlefield 3 to look forward to for graphics. Crytek obviously improved on areas that needed the most improving, but unfortunately graphics took a hit. I still have faith Crytek will do something special for PC gamers. Don't lose hope yet.
People saying it's only like this because of the ported demo.. have you not read anything about the leak? The videos I'm seeing suggest that this is the game. Comments from people who played suggest this demo is representative of the game. Performance is even identical to that article that ran numbers based off of the leak.
Geforce.com has benchmarks of what they call close to final code and the game looks the same as the demo. Has 3 settings, Forced TAA, etc.. The benchmarks are run in Single player. I don't even mind the graphics, they aren't bad or anything. There are aspects like the blur and lighting that look like ass, though.
Remember when people were saying the assets just weren't in the leak? That's probably because there are no more to add other then this dx11 patch.
The gameplay itself is half ass Halo, and half ass CoD. I won't admit the gameplay is awesome. It's generic as hell. Whoever hits the armor button and sprays first wins.
If you're satisfied with another CoD clone, then good for you. The people canceling their pre-orders are not.
