Crysis 2 Doesn't Need DX11... - Page 4

post #31 of 132
single player is pretty fun. My gtx460 can play it on hardcore @1980x1080 and it hasn't gone below 30fps yet, pretty optimized for the visuals i am seeing. IMHO, crysis 2 looks so much better in motion. The pictures do noooo justice at all.

The original crysis looked great in pictures but kinda bland in game. If you ever went inside a building in the original when it was in close quarters, it looks really nice and detailed(hope you get what I mean, I explored every detail in this game). Crysis 2 looks like the detail plus being expanded 10x bigger into a city. Also, it feels nothing like a console port besides maybe not being able to choose powers, everything else feels just like crysis 1.

Oh, so that's what Toggle Zoom is!

I'll be installing it soon! I'm finally no longer busy; all I have to do is go get some food, eat it, install Crysis 2, and then I'll be jammin'.

Well to be honest, from a business standpoint Crytek did (almost) everything right. Obviously, the majority of the revenue comes from mainstream gamers which really don't care about the best graphics possible. All they want to do is play the game (story+control) and enjoy it for while (longevity). Personally, I think the game graphics look very decent for DX9 and performance is stellar on mid-range hardware.

It's pretty obvious this game is not comparable to the original Crysis (which was pretty much all about showing off "next generation" graphics) and had a ton of advanced and PC specific options. Crysis 2, on the other hand, was developed completely with game experience as you play it in mind rather than examining the game itself. Some call this "console logic" but in reality this is just typical gamer logic. Crytek as well as many other developers started following this route and many of you are upset about it. You gotta keep in mind, they are a business, they're not in it to lose money. And they certainly are not going to pass up an opportunity to increase profits as well. Of course such decisions will lose a good percentage of the faithful customers that loved the developers for the games they cared about. But the profits they gain from opening themselves up to the mainstream audience seems to be well worth it for them.

Don't get me wrong, I am always upset to see a developer take this route (especially one that I have a lot of respect for). But honestly, you can't blame them. This is not freelance work. It is a professional team who spend a lot of money and time to make a product, they want it to be profitable and introduce themselves to as many consumers as possible.

Personally, I have a theory that Crytek did this move on purpose with Crysis 2 so they can become more popular and once they gain substantial popularity and profit enough from the game, they may go back and make a new Crysis with extra care for what us PC enthusiasts care about (graphics and advanced PC specific features). So overall, I do not blame Crytek or any other dev as long as they keep in mind they have a very loyal fanbase of us. With that said, if Crysis 2 does well in sales, I think you might expect a little surprise from Crytek with Crysis 3 (yes it was confirmed, Link).

Just my .

Your opinion is very true. Crytek did a really good job of making crysis 2 sell to the public.

But the thread is from a graphic standpoint

I see one fatal flaw in the possible reason for the creation of Crysis 2: word of mouth is going to spread, and that means that there will be many people who will not buy it who otherwise would have if they had not been told that it sucks!

I think that if they had made Crysis 2 to be the same as Crysis 1 but superior in many ways, then word of mouth would have spread thereby making sales go through the proverbial roof. I don't care if their target market mostly consists of people who couldn't really care less because I think that even those people would be extremely impressed.

Whatever, though. I'm going to install it in a few minutes and then I'll see what I think. After all, that's all that matters in my world.

Oh please. Nobody is buying your poor quality steam pictures.
post #38 of 132
I don't have the game on Steam, and they are took using Afterburner 2.1.0 with PNG quality of 100%, so install the game, and verify it yourself.

Asked my friend to get some pics on hardcore with a nvidia card.

Are you running the game on max settings with a high resolution? Because those pics look terrible compared to many others. Look http://www.overclock.net/pc-games/95...rysis-1-a.html
