Graphics don't make the game, even with crysis. Heck, I played through crysis 1 with 10-20FPS low graphics @ 1280x1024 on my old rig. That's because I liked the damned game, not because I enjoyed the visuals.
The visuals in this game look enough for a modern game. Lets see if they manage to make a good game instead of a game that would be known mainly as a benchmark, such as crysis 1.
Why should the next crysis be crysis 2? I'd rather take the worlds next best visuals in another game series tyvm.
But gameplay wise, they've j ust managed to make a shiny COD. Not that it would be an inherently bad thing. But it doesn't look promising.
I'll hold judgement on this one.
Yes I too enjoyed crysis 1 as a game. And I too used low graphics when playing through the game for the first time. (HD4350
) I really, really enjoyed the game. I loved the environments, the battles, the sandboxiness, just about everything.
When I finally got my first 5870 I could basically max the game. At that point the whole other side of it opened to me, it's still the most impressive looking game I've seen.
I would like to buy the game but I think I'm gonna refrain from doing so on principle. I saw the MP of the game turned into a small random fight in a small box. I saw the beautiful natural landscapes turn into a blocky city. I saw a step backwards with the graphics. I simply can not accept going backwards technically in a game that's supposed to be the continual to the only game that has set the graphics standard and been the pioneer of games for the past 4 years.
Everyone who is disagreeing with me, fine, these are my own opinions and should not be taken as something everyone should feel.
Oh and off-topic: STOP writing in blue, makes you look like an attention seeker or something.
