I'll believe it when I see the code. Releasing a game broken in feature set is an idiotic move on EA/Crytek's part.
You are trippin if you think crysis 2 will not be a DX11 game. Pull our head out of your ... shirt

Again, the biggest part of the problem here is Crysis 2 is a DIRECT CONSOLE PORT, and the fact that Crytek flat out LIED TO US PC gamers.
I'm tired of this misconception. Just because you're glorious PC does not get special features over the console version does not make it a console port. A console port is when you take a console game and simply convert the code into working PC code. Most console ports are done crapily.

The way the cryengine 3 works, is that all the levels are built on PC, in the engine. When the level is ready, the engine then converts the level into PS3 code, Xbox code and PC code. It's not xbox code swapped into PC code. It's simply not a port.

That being said, the MP sucks. The graphics in MP are fail. However, single player graphics are pretty sweet.


As far as multiplayer goes, theres room for improvement. The graphics could be better. They probably gimped the textures and many effects for the sake of file size. Because the demo is only 1.6gb. The cinematic mod for half-life 2 is like 20gb.

Also, theres a disclaimer on the login screen in the demo, stating that "this demo is for evaluation purposes only and is not necessarily representative of the final features and quality of the software"
This tells me crytek wanted to get the multiplayer demo out in as little file size as possible simply because it's more convenient for the masses. They just want as many people as possible to be able to download and play the game.

BTW, for those of you trying to create an account to play the crysis demo. Neither a mycrysis.com nor gamespy account will work. You have to create the account in game.

Hahaa , how can assume such a thing ? in dx9 its like crysis on high ? lol u have no idea .

I have played both on highest settings , and crysis 2 looks a million times better in dx9 than crysis 1 ever could .

I know what crysis 2 will look like on max settings as i have played the beta start to finish on hardcore .. What higher setting is there going to be ? EXTREME ? dont think so my friend .

This game needs to be playable or everyone is going to complain how bad it plays .. The leak is where the game is at 1 month before release so nm is going to change , accept the facts and stop trying to make everyone think the game is going to change drastically because u r wrong .

dx11 wont make or break this game anyway , unless there are major changes to the game which would take a long time and crytek only have 2 weeks to "change the game " get it ready to be put on dvd and sent to stores ..

THEY HAVE NO TIME , the leak , the demo .. they are the same .. nothing is going to change .

You are just worng. The beta was not DX11 either. And yes the crysis2 demo on max is equal to crysis1 on hign but not very high, but that doesnt mean crysis2 doesnt look better in DX9 mode than crysis1 did in DX9 mode. If you remember, in crysis1 when played in DX9 mode, very high settings were not usable. Only high or lower. Same for Crysis2 demo. In DX9 mode only high but not very high can be used.

Again with this. I have never heard of that source, or that source's source! I think it is just something to cause a big flame war. Until the game releases or Crytek THEMSELVES confirm this, this is utter crap.
