Crytek wanted consoles(mainly 360) and they got it. Plenty of people here buy and play console ports, but they aren't typically PC ip's completely changed to accommodate consoles.
I'm only about 3 hours in and the campaign is just like every other cookie cutter fps out there. Even if it is popular on the 360, it won't have legs, and it'll be completely forgotten by the fall.
Also I'm not sure where you pull the "we'll only have valve left" argument, more and more publishers/developers are saying they are looking at the PC with more focus.
Crytek did more with Dx9 than what most developers have done with anything else, including Dx11.
Crytek did an awesome job of capturing some of the PC experience on to antiquated hardware, on both PCs and consoles.
Calling the game crap because it doesn't have Dx11 is whining. Saying that "you are disappointed at the last minute removal of Dx11 support. It could really have demonstrated the power of the CryEngine 3" is an opinion (hopefully soon to be fact.)
Cookie cutter FPS? By cookie cutter, do you mean it has a gun and you are first person? Then yes, yes that would technically be cookie cutter. Is it reminiscent of Crysis 1 gameplay? Well it should be its the sequel. Does it have you killing a ton of AI to reach an objective? You can if you want to, or have genocidal tendencies. Is the gameplay linear? Of course, its an FPS thats heavily story driven and scripted. I could go on and on, but I heavily disagree about it being cookie cutter.
There are elements that are in every First Person Shooter, its a genre after all, and if you don't like that fact (which is perfectly okay), perhaps you are playing the wrong genre.
The point is, single & multi player bugs aside, Dx11 aside, this game is a stellar title. Continued support from Crytek should ensure that it has stellar support as well and only time will tell us that.Edited by RagingCain - 3/28/11 at 6:24am
