Thats absolutely stupid. Another game that started on PC and ended up as a port. I hope this only applies for the demo... sigh.

This whole optimized crap does not convince me though.

Yes it looks good, but so did Half-Life 2 when it was first shown in 2003 and released in 2004.

The thing is, it's been more than 3 years since Crysis was released and technology has moved further.

Yet, from Geforce.com's analysis, a single GTX580 can run the game at 2560x1600 in hardcore. And that is not the Demo, it's from one of the final builds, using DX11.

Optimized, sure. Looking into the future ? Highly doubt it. If they were really looking into the future, they could have been more ambitious. But no... consoles can't catch it, so let's not widen the gap even more.

Remember 2007, when Crysis was released ?

- You could buy an affordable 19" wide 1440x900 monitor or a bit more expensive, but still affordable 20" 1680x1050 monitor

- The most powerful card you could buy was a Geforce 8800 Ultra and alone it could only play Very High fluidly at 1024x768 or perhaps 1280x800.

- The minimum GPU to play it was a Geforce 6800GT; yet the midrange card from the year before Crysis was launched was the 7600GT, which only had comparable performance to the 6800GS... and it didn't really play all that well.

- People with a 7600GT and a 3 year old single core PC (top of the line 2004 PC) could probably play it at low-medium settings at 1024x768


-Nowadays, someone with a 3 year old top of the line PC (a Core 2 Quad @ 3 Ghz, easily overclockable), and a 1 year old GPU (Radeon HD5870) can play at 1080p, Hardcore Settings, and keep a 40's average framerate. A one year old midrange GPU can game at hardcore settings at 1680x1050 with a 30's average framerate.

Now compare both situations. It's blatantly obvious they dumbed down the game because the consoles are holding it back.

But this strategy is not going to play out well for either Microsoft or Sony. They made so many mistakes in the beginning of the Xbox 360 and PS3 and are now trying to win back the money they lost by keeping outdated consoles on the market for who knows how many more years - it's going to turn against them sooner than they think.

Ok, Looks ok, Plays well, Dont like the "pop up" on a lot of the items in seeable distances

I Like the MP, Like cod 4 indeed,

BUT!, I was insulted at first with only 12 Player servers!!!! WTH! I can not cope with that little amount, 18 on Black ops is fine but 20 would of been better for ranked matches.
Yet i thought ohh its just the beta servers...

The worst thing is though... WAITING 60 SECONDS IN THE SERVER!
I Mean come on i just want to jump in and play, If i want to configure stuff i will do it in my own time... Just shocking.

"hurr crytek wouldn't do this to us"

I seriously don't understand how anyone could expect anything different, look at Crysis. Sure it looks pretty, but that's all it ever had going for it. Crappy story, horrible optimization, horrible gameplay. Why would any of you expect any different for Crysis 2?

Only two gripes really, the graphics were less than stellar, yet ran worse than the original? Sure hope they optimise that a little... Also all the waiting in the server, reminded me way too much of playing COD on a friends PS3, I've never met this on a PC game before, yet another sign of a port. Sure hope the actual game isn't this badly ported.

I didn't see anywhere on there where they said it was running DX11.

It's optimized beautifully actually. They did a fantastic job with the 360 version, really those kinds of visuals are amazing for 2005 hardware.

I didn't expect a PC optimized version, I had hoped for a better story and better gameplay which, to a degree I like the new nanosuit. It's a bit more fitting but the lack of strength is kind of sad.

My belief is that, although it is pretty much a console port right now, it is a demo. A demo is for the players to use and experience, and then give back feedback for Crytek on what to add/take out/tweak to make the experience better. I would be a lot more pissed if this was the final product, and I'm sure all of you would too. But to straight out state that the final product will be this crappy might be pushing it a little too early. If you really hated this demo, then express your feelings and opinions to Crytek. If enough complaints get to them, I'm sure they would have to change it so that the final product will be the stellar product we have been anticipating for.

I have a few suggestions to improve the game:

- Disable auto aim for the PC

- allow field of view to be adjusted

- allow fine tuning of graphics quality - and display explanations to those who don't understand the technical jargon - Crysis and Warhead had many options, but if they had explained- via a pop-up window when you clicked or something - what each setting did - how it affected visual quality and what likely impact on CPU or GPU horsepower it had, it would have been wonderful. Now they could have improved that, but no, they dumbed it down, console style. This way people are not going learn anything new.

- Improve the on screen stuff. Very confusing to look at.

Honestly, I've played several rounds of the demo so far and enjoy it quite a bit. I think it looks fantastic and runs very well. OMG IT SAIS PRESS START BUTTON!!11! Seriously people, does it REALLY matter?

My only gripe with the MP is that how many bullets it takes to get kills with the sniper rifles, but I'm sure that will get fixed and/or not matter anyway since I'll be playing only the single player missions.
