DX11 will be implemented later I hear.

I have no idea why you're having so many issues. I played for two hours last night and didn't encounter a single bug.

It does run better and smoother. CryEngine 3 is really advanced. Give it some time to fill in it's own shoes. I believe Crysis 2 is the first major game to use this engine, so give it time. I remember when the last version of Unreal came out... talk about buggy!

Yes, I've heard that too. But this is CRYSIS 2, not COD. It should have shipped dx11. Hell it didn't even ship dx10! Freaking civ5 had dx11 a year ago and the graphics on that game are on par with stick figures. Seriously, theres no excuse for this when its not just a sequel to crysis (THE game to push graphical limits), but also campaigned as being developed "for PC, not consoles".

As for the bugs, I'm BY FAR not the only one getting all of these. Every time I found one I couldn't solve on my own (there are a ton which I could as well or just wernt bad enough to care about just btw, stuff like blowing up a helo and the gunner being in the "window" still trying to shoot me from the rubble but doing 0 damage) I googled them. Pages upon pages of results regarding the exact same problem... within 2 days of release... yeah.

Runs smoother? Hardly. I get random lock-ups for seconds at a time and the average FPS is actually LOWER... yes, you heard that right, than it was on crysis 1. It has far worse looking graphics to boot. The god awful motion blur assault is the only thing that keeps it from causing epilepsy every time you move but has the side effect of making multiplayer entirely unplayable and of course looks like total ass.

Is the engine advanced? Meh, it might be. No way to know though since this game could easily be a modern warfare mod and is clearly an unoptimized console port.

I haven't bought and/or played the final game. I remember finishing the first and looking so forward to the next two, more of the same but better, but when I heard they were going multi-platform, I grew a bit concerned. I then heard it was taking place in an apocalyptic New York, which I knew meant a more smaller/linear game. "What?" That's when I lost alot of hope too, I held onto a little hope and still looked forward to playing it. Crysis that didn't have huge maps and in another setting could still be good, if a bit different. Then the demo came and I played that and it all changed. Sure, it's a demo, and just multiplayer, but it showed what the game was. I didn't like it, and changed plans to buy it. I've since seen YouTube videos, and also from what I've heard, I'm convinced enough to form the opinion that this isn't the game for me. Therefore, I dislike it, and here's why.

I'll spare the tired "consolitis" cry. Everywhere I look, alot of the people displeased with the game are mentioning stuff along those lines. I dislike the game for other reasons, so it's not just another "it's a console port" opinion. Though the game going multiplatform was one of the deeper causes of the changes to the game, that in itself isn't the ultimate reason for my dislike of it.

So why do I dislike it? Simply put, to me, Crysis was the open sandbox and gamplay of the first. It was also the lush jungle. Far Cry was all of this, and Crysis was it's spiritual successor that did it all as well. I think many people set themselves up because of the hype, and went in expecting a bit more of an instant gratification and/or genre redefining game, and when it wasn't that, out came the "cliche/dumb story, no gameplay, poor performance, and only graphics" summarizations of the game. It definitely had performance issues with hardware of the time. It was far from perfect (namely the second half). It did not redefine the genre. At the end of the day though, I love the open world, and the gameplay, while not the best, was still very fun for me. The open world and nanosuit were brilliant, but many seemed to miss it and/or play it wrong and not see this, but the gameplay was there (in my opinion). The story was enough for an FPS. The graphics were, well, it needn't be said, and the customizing was a PC gamers dream. It is a very great game, and one, to this day, I am liking more and more as I play it more. I have a play through of Far Cry planned soon enough as well. These are great games.

The second takes that gameplay and does away with it, in short for, as some have said, a Call of Duty/Crysis mixed breed, and that is not what I expected or what I even like. To me, this isn't Crysis in much of anything but name, and that is why I dislike it. The "consolitis" aspects are just icing on the cake, but if a game is good, I can overlook that because it doesn't matter by itself (it's still something worth mentioning). The developers (CryTek)/games that once pioneered PC visuals and all, and were great games themselves even, completely changed to a console generic shooter (and although it uses DirectX 9, it does at least look good and run well).

It may be a good game in it's own right, but it's not the type of game I expected or wanted. In that regard, just like many others went into the first expecting something and getting another, I am the same way with the second, only it's not that I set myself up over hype, rather I expected Crysis 2 and got a mix of Call of Duty, which I really don't like, thrown in. It was clearly prioritized for both the consoles and Call of Duty fans, and for them, it might be great. Unfortunately, I myself don't like what I see, so I don't like it, and that's why.

Haha... and crytek just said the dx11 patch is a rumor. What now, people who senselessly defend crytek on the soul reason that there is an upcoming patch?
