I haven't, so keep that in mind.

However, I have seen videos and read reviews, and decided not to risk buying it after hearing of the changes to the single player gameplay. I'm not one of the ones who dislike the first. I loved it. The open world and nanosuit and weapon customization was a breath of fresh air, even if the second half fell a bit apart. I remember finishing it and seeing that ending, the music playing and all and Nomad going "no, we know how to beat them now, we're going back...", then seeing them heading back to island, and anticipating "I wonder what's next!". Well, going to an apocalyptic city with a more limited world didn't sound fun, and when the demo had traces of Call of Duty and port written all over it, they were just the icing on the top, so I decided it might be an okay game in it's own right, but not what I wanted. From what I've heard (don't worry, I can sort through whining), it sounds like I made the right choice for myself. The one thing I had little hope in, the storyline, seems a slight letdown too from coming from a supposedly good writer.

It has next to nothing to do with lack of DirectX 11 either. The game looks fabulous. I could care less if it's DirectX 7 or DirectX 12 if it looks as it does.

It had to do with feel, gameplay, and the open world. I just wanted more of Crysis 1, not Call of Duty meets Crysis meets a bit of knock down to the casual level.

So, no, I didn't try it, but I'm all but sure I'd like the first's gameplay better, even if this game may be alright for what it is, because what it is simply isn't for me. I'm simply not willing to risk the $60 "just to try it to be sure" when I'm all but sure I wouldn't enjoy it for that value. Unless I have enough going to make me nearly sure I'll like it, I am more careful about what I buy after being burned in the past that way. It doesn't work where I buy something to try it to prove I won't like it. Call it a less experienced opinion, but we are still allowed to have one having not played it. Not everyone is just whining about DirectX 11. Some of us aren't bashing the game and genuinely just don't prefer it.

Supreme Commander 2 was basically a port and I was saddened. I mean really why make an rts for a console and then gimp the PC version? I wished it was a better graphics version of Forged Alliance. That being said I logged 76 hours over a 3 month period.

It is a very different game, I can see how someone could prefer the originals gameplay. I personally like it a lot myself and have put plenty of hours in both the first and warhead. But crysis 2 just feels so much more fluid and streamlined. I can see how some could not like that but it really improves the gun play and feel of the combat for the better imo at least. It also has much more direction which is one of the major changes, you are always moving forward and the action is much more focused. The atmosphere is amazing and there is much more art direction which gives it much more flavor imo. The graphics are arguably better despite the few downsides such as some objects having low texture sizes but that is only an issue on objects that aren't important and the objects you see most of the time have high res textures. Most of the issues come up when people expect it to be just like the first and are disappointed when it doesn't live up to that but when you just think of it as a totally new game it has a lot going for it that people will notice. Like it has one of the best musical scores in a game ever.

Not a game you see mentioned often: Flashpoint

The original was amazing, it's where ARMA, etc came from. I loved making missions upon missions in Flashpoint. With that said, not sure if consoles necessarily ruined it, or just the developers. Or both...

Not sure why I see a lot of people posting Halo, wasn't it meant to be played on consoles in the first place? I could be wrong...

It's so easy...COD Modern Warfare 2. IWNET people...that was some crap right there.

Crysis 2 is actually better than the original crysis game play wise. Far better story line as well.
