Sorry but I still disagree, the product is not a fud IMO. It's an amazing game that looks great and plays well. Most started playing, disliked the changes and quit without giving it a fair chance at all. Once patch 1.2 is released, hopefully MP issues and some SP bugs will be fixed so that the game plays flawlessly

There is practically no diffrence between Xbox360 and PC versions of this game and while that would be all fine and well for your average console port, its a letdown when the whole basis of their marketing campaign was "its not an average console port".

There is a difference, a thread on here was posted maybe 2-3 days back with a pdf talking about CE3 and what Crytek changed between the PC and console versions. I read the whole thing, it was pretty interesting to say the least. Unlike Crysis, in Crysis 2, lowering settings from let's say extreme to hardcore, etc... means that you'll still see all features, just less of them(best way I can explain it). This is in contrast to Crysis where they would completely turn off the feature. This is why you'll see similar gfx at lower settings but the fps increases

If you went to a store and saw a big old box with a picture of a fancy computer case and all kinds of hyped up marketing about its awesome new features, and when you purchased and brought it home it was just a stock dell case with a diffent plastic shell on the outside, would you still think the company was made of lolipops and rainbows? Oh... well it looks like you did ; )
Bizzare example, lol, but that's false advertising. Crytek said that they had three different teams to make the different versions, they did after they made the general game on CE3 then each team made the specific features for each platform.
I think TwoCables said it best:

I notice a d3dx10_42.dll file located in Crysis 2 folder. What purpose does this serve? Does this mean we can launch the game forcing it dx10 because of that file or is it there for another reason?

Those are probably just library files that contain the source code for dx10 API classes...dx10 objects are not implemented in the games source code so those library files are probably useless for now.

I dunno anything about DirectX programming I'm just talking outta my ass pretty much.

PS - stitches are for snitches.

The DX10 file must be for stuff like the lighting/HDR/Bloom and the water textures, but there is no fully utilized DX10 object ect. And i always thought MSAA was DX11?

No way it could be the water textures too. Water looks bland compared to dx10 in Crysis 1. Could be just me. All we gotta do is wait for the update. I ain't worried. Enjoying Crysis 2 with my config for Single Player. It's nice to have perfect reduced HDR and Bloom.

Wish i can on multiplayer. ugh.
