post #551 of 2699
I have never seen OCN freak out more than this about a game. Ok well maybe mw2, but it deserved it.

What I seriously don't get... how the hell people think this game looks bad. It looks really really good...

It doesn't look bad, but it doesn't look good enough. For any other game it would've been fine, but this is Crysis 2.

There is a certain chunkiness about it, even at 1920x1080 - it doesn't have the detail of the original, feels like an arcade game. walls, textures, foliage, everything is simplified to enable the game to run well on console.

The mind boggles at just how good this game could have looked if PC was the lead platform.

AHA! Now we get to what's really going on here. The generational leap was not met... well w/e. Me thinks perhaps the people infer too much. Looks pretty impressive at 1920x1200, maybe you need to up your resolution =P

What gets me is the crappy textures! Stand still, hold your pistol, and look at your hand textures. LOOK AT THEM! THEY ARE UGG-LEE

EDIT: Some useful tactics

It will probably end up the same way too.. everyone saying they won't buy it and then they do. Lucky for me I made a choice, either this or shogun 2 and they both had demos and I enjoyed the shogun 2 demo much more.

I thought the game looked ok but for the title of crysis 2 was lacking if even my somewhat old gpu was able to run it decently. Possible no dx11 on support just crys they spent to much time working on the consoles.

This is MP though. I recall when playing crysis MP, at one point, I stood near a wall and looked at it. It was horrible, pixelated and just brown. From a distance it looked fine, but, not up close. Personally, I think the demo has decent gfx in comparison to crysis MP since we haven't played SP to compare

That's the main issue for most other than the start, gamma and aim assist options, rofl. People set their expectations too high and excepted too much of a jump in gfx. When they didn't get that huge jump and got a more moderate one since the demo actually runs well and looks great, they were disappointed and started voicing their ahem *concerns*.

DX11 is coming through a patch, likely within a couple of weeks once the game is released. Maybe the idea was that people will bench less, play more and prevent piracy. Then once sales have settled down, they'll release DX11 so that everyone will then start benching

Lol who needs dx11 for this game??? Due to nanovision you end up looking at a bunch of red and green predator **** on your screen most of the time as opposed to actual graphics.

Nanovision doesn't ruin the game. Its the fact that the cloak is totally invisible forcing us to use nanovision more than we really should. And everybody cloak spams so we end up using nanovision just to get ahead for half the time instead of enjoying the proper scenary. I wish they would halve the time you can spend in cloak mode, its becoming irritating. For MP at least.
