I think SP is great so far. It has a really good story line and is very fun to play.
DX11 is 3 years old already, DX10 is 4-5 years old. DX9 is 10 years old.

Crysis 2 isn't a bad game, it's just not Crysis. Crysis is about open-ended combat with an objective. You're given an objective and a free world. It's not like COD where you're on rails and are forced to complete the game the same way.

Crysis 2 is more like COD, in the sense that it's linear.

DX10 games list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ctX_10_support (total of 50 games)

DX11 games list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ctX_11_support (total of 17 games)

"Rock Paper Shotgun claims to have indisputable proof that Crysis 2 made massive compromises on the graphical front in order to keep the console market happy, including a lower-than-average 32.1 million pixels spread across a 12 joule range with negligible ambience, not to mention a 32.3% downturn in color."

To arms, PC gamers! Are you going to let this sort of thing stand unchecked?

That's not scaling. Scaling means the graphics-fidelity will change linearly with the power of the hardware used. There is about 0 difference between the settings, and between the platforms. Most people wouldn't mind if the graphics would scale for their high end rig. Textures, model detail, post-processing, etc.

It's essentially a reverse Crysis. Instead of everyone complaining about not being about to max out the game, everyone's complaining they can max out the game, and it doesn't push the bar like the first. Which is what people came to expect from a Crysis game.

As far as I'm aware, people aren't buying high end hardware (especially graphics cards) to render storylines in real time. People want the games to utilize that hardware to the fullest extent, and then some.

I hope you didn't consider BC2, a BF rip off like MW being a COD rip off, an above par product. Fact of the matter is, Crysis 2 is actually a good game. People here enjoy jumping on the hate-wagon and finding other excuses to use besides the now overused DX11 complaint. It is getting sad.

And LOL at you slagging off BC2 saying it's trying to be like CoD, it Kills CoD in every conceivable way. Name me better multiplayer FPS game to play at the moment then champ.
I don't know if you have a good sound setup, but BC2 removes "quality" for bloated bass effects. The sound processing is mediocre, having take up nearly an entire core to process. Heck, we're looking at 20% for bloated bass, weak, and removed sound. Last time I checked, running inside a building, in still air, does not remove 90% of all noise, while adding a filter to distort "lighter" sounds.

BC2 is a BF game trying take a humour apporach like TF2 and mix it with a COD overlay just for the sake of sales. Crysis2 is much like COD, no doubt about it, but at least they did it right. BC2 should not hold the BF name, nor the more recent COD barring names. If anything, these companies are slowly killing the genre. Hopefully BF3 pulls back what BF2 was back then.

As for good FPS games to play? CSS/CS1.6 still hold quite strong. Gaming through HL and HL2 + eps still works pretty well. Mod support for these games are also great. Other good FPS are BF2142, BF2, etc. These games are still great, old, but still uphold their value.

Dx 11 may be 3 yrs old but it's very GPU intensive. Right now most Dx 11 compatible GPUs aren't strong enough to actually handle it in a game. The Dx 11 benchmarks ( with no moving characters ) get you mid 20's FPS and to top it off, only 5.6% of all PC gamers can run Dx 11. That's only a 2% increase from last year.

They're ALL linear, including Crysis 1. They just have very clever ways of tricking you into thinking otherwise.

Except when you strip away all the fancy effects from DX9 and DX11, DX11 performs better in essence. After you pile on the tessellation, HBAO, SSAO, AA and AF you're mostly right.

We do have the GTX 590 and Radeon 6990 in our hands now.

Yes many games are linear in story design, that can't really be helped. I'm talking more about level design. In Crysis you could swim out to open sea if you really want, of course you'd get mauled by sharks or exploded by rockets, but by the time you're there, you're massively off course from the mission anyway.

Crysis is not linear in the sense of how you approach and take on your objectives, of course the objective remains the same throughout the game, but your tactics could vary greatly. Sneak in, shoot in, drive and kamikazee in, blow it all up with a rocket launcher, etc.

Crysis 2 has limited options with this, you can either Flank, Stealth or LedgeGrab

Kidding really, the point is that they try to maintain the open-endedness but it just doesn't work with linear levels.

More to the point is that a 10 year old API should be dead and buried along with the operating system it was most common on

But, it also still confuses me why drive letters A and B are still reserved for floppy drives, and why we still use BIOS rather than EFI.
