Crysis 2 Thoughts (Not Raging)

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
So, last night I played 4 hours of the demo and I love it so much. The guns are balanced as are the abilities. The game runs great for giving me a constant 80+ FPS. I don't see why people rage over this. Bad Company 2 beta only had DX9 as well. This game is in beta phase and runs better than CoD BO, but I don't see people throwing a fit over it as much as Crysis. I figured a post for the positive points was necessary. I am soo tired of the rage threads. Never had a pre order, but now I do. Love the game and can't wait.

Also thought I should add that no game I currently own, except DiRT 2, looks as good while producing FPS never below 80.

Please refrain from profanity and rage comments as this is a positive thread.

I don't care if DX11 is added in a patch considering this is the first FPS in the last year that runs fine without being modded, in my experiences. Functioning game with DX9 patch to DX11 later is superior to PoS rushed games.

I agree who cares how it looks. It looks pretty nice. I run at 1920x1200 at round 45fps. The sound are amazing.

The game definitely has some stron points, but if you remember back to the first one it was absolutely revolutionary. The graphics were unreal and it completely changed the face of computer gaming by setting a new standard that no other games even came close to.

Naturally crysis 2 was expected to be revolutionary as well and it hasn't been even close to that. In fact the graphics are a step backwards and there's nothing that sets it apart from anything else really on the market.

Don't get me wrong I'm sure it'll be fun, and I'll certainly buy it. It's just not life changing.

thats because technology is reaching a wall, the gpu's today arent able to handle the graphical level that you see in prerendnderd scenes, so for crytek to make it really really beautiful would have resulted in nobody being able to play the game.

crysis 1 was so revolutionary because hardware was going to increase beyond the specs needed to max the game out.

This.

My theory is that Crytek decided to port the console demo to PC in order to silence their more whinier fans. I don't think they had any plans for a PC demo because they suspected PC players wouldn't need it. Crytek has an outstanding reputation on the PC and this alone should've been proof to their fans that on the PC, Crytek doesn't mess around. It didn't really pan out as they hoped, though. Pity.

As for this DX11 patch nonsense: it is really just nonsense, IMO. If this was some generic developer (ie: IW), I would be worried about getting a discombobulated mess that reeks of console, and although the demo was just that, I have faith in Crytek that the final will be everything Crysis 1 was and more.

I thoroughly enjoyed the demo, despite it being a horrible console port. IMO, the multiplayer is exactly what Crysis needs: outstanding FPS on mediocre systems, decent balancing and good use of the Nanosuit.
