Difficult concept for those type of people, they think everything is entitled to them and that everyone should work for free, except their egoistic self that is, it's like I thought Justin Bieber's music is total crap (which it is) so I'll just download it. Now why would I do that if listening to one of his song is absolute torture, I'll just don't buy and don't listen to his music, the pirating the game because it's crap thing is so ridiculous, why would want to play a crap game anyway ?

You can't blame Crytek for wanting a paycheck.
Thats what all this is about.

I enjoyed the beta release so I bought this game from EA. I'm really digging the MP and single player is as good as the first IMO.

I'm happy and not expecting the world!

How can people tell the quality of a game by just looking at it's Direct X version? It seems at times some people want to phase out all older hardware to force people to upgrade >.>

Valve doesn't disclose their sales. When the projected marketshare is around 80% for Steam that's a rather huge portion.

Add to the while current multiplayer fiasco.... lulz.

Make a quality game and people will buy it... it isn't rocket science.

Press start to continue. Oh wait, you had to actually patch that. GG Crytek... buncha fools.
Your opinions literally make ZERO sense since Crytek tried to give PC gamers what they were whining for in Crysis 1 and it only sold 1 million copies in the first QUARTER, with a 15:1 pirate to sales ratio.

Don't try to turn it around and say they would have sold better on PC if they did anything different because there's historical PROOF they wouldn't have.

I swear to God, I must be 1 of 6 people who actually liked the game on PC.
No, there's just a very vocal minority in PC gaming that either cares more for the Dx version or the graphics than they do the gameplay or PC-fanboys that have that snobbish/elitist attitude

Plenty of people like it. Plenty more would if they'd stop listening to the hate around them. I didn't buy Crysis 1 until more than a year after it came out for the same reason some aren't buying Crysis 2 now.

I'm a devoted PC gamer but the lack of support for ANYTHING that isn't purely PC here is astounding. Soon, all we'll be left with is WoW and hanging in limbo while Valve takes their sweet Valve time releasing HL2:EP3.
100% correct sir. I've been fighting against the haters since almost a MONTH before this game came out. 9 times out of 10, they don't have ANYTHING constructive to say about the game. 9 times out of 10 they're just parroting what someone else said. On the few chances I'm able to even to get them to mention specifics about the game, it's extremely minor things that you'd have to take a screenshot and stare at to even notice. Their issues can be summed up into the following:
  1. It said 'press start' instead of 'press enter'. Wrong wording doesn't affect your game.
  2. It says 'adjust your TV'. Who gives a flying ----?!
  3. The graphics suck!. You're exaggerating or being dramatic if you really think so. The graphics are just as good as Crysis 1 and we'll have Dx 11 soon to make it better.
  4. Yeah, well Crysis 2 should have been as advanced for its time as Crysis 1. FAIL! No, the fail was Crytek making Crysis 1 that advanced b/c making a game you can't max out for 3 years doesn't sell games NOW. 2 out of the 3 million sales they got past the first Quarter of Crysis 1's release are at bargain bin prices.
  5. Last time they used Dx 10, Now they're only using Dx 9. FAIL! In reality, 99% of what they did in Crysis 1 AND in Metro 2033 can be attributed to Dx 9. They gave you a 1% sprinkling of Dx 10/Dx 11. If the difference between Dx 9 and Dx 10 Crysis 1 or Dx 9 and Dx 11 Metro 2033 are so insignificant that you have to study a screen shot to see a difference, then why does Crysis 2 not using Dx 11 ( yet ) matter so much? The reality is it doesn't and the haters are just grabbing at straws.
  6. The Multiplayer is CoD:Nanosuit. FAIL! CoD is actually quite fun and adding the nanosuit adds a huge new layer to the equation. Taking what works and what's fun from other titles has been done since the days of Atari. Why WOULDN'T you take what works and try to implement it in your own way?! Besides I thought the PC hate against CoD was because they gave you 2005 graphics, sold you maps you already own in previous CoDs and refused to give you dedicated servers.
  7. Crysis 2 has closed, narrow maps. It's no better than CoD or Halo! The maps are actually quite open. They're huge. You have plenty of options on how you want to approach the situation. Crysis 2 is not some KillZone copy where you move from one chest high barrier to the next.

I didn't even bother. It's once again going to be one of those games that are graphically amazing to look at...but will have poor or almost unpopulated multiplayer and be relatively pointless to play. Yeah, I'll play BC2 instead.
