Oh yeah. Metacritic rated it at 91%. You probably haven't heard about it because it was PC only and had pretty steep hardware requirements.

Might be the only PC sequel in history that will require less hardware to run than the first game.

Been a pretty hardcore PC platform only gamer for years just never played Cyris. I spent about $60 on Far Cry was sorely disappointed and never went down the single player FPS again. Started getting into games like BattleField (2 to Bad Company), Call of Duty (the early versions), Team Fortress and games of that genre.

I do have a Wii but it serves mainly as a drinking game during Tiger Woods Golf & bowling, the kids play Wii Resort when they come over and serves as a Netflix medium for steaming videos.

May have to check out the first one if I can pick it up through Steam or if maybe the DRM isn't ridiculous off Amazon. Steam and Me have a nice relationship going as far as DRM is concerned and I plan to stick with them and little else as far as PC games.

I haven't played Crysis, so I can't comment on the similarities, but it and Far Cry were both developed by Crytek.

Tell me you've at least played Half Life 2, the Citizen Kane of FPS'.

Crysis was a lot of fun to play. Awesome, non-stop buildup in the story with an amazing peak at the end. Best looking game ever made, too. It's no Half-Life, but it's still amazing.

Played both HL I and II. I just don't like playing against AI (although it's getting better) because I always find ways to "fool" the game. Competing against human intel far more challenging.

I'd rate both HL I & II 3.5 out of 5 stars. Great games just don't like the player vs computer thing too much.

I don't think it was about the challenge as much as being thrust into an imaginary situation in an imaginary setting and having fun with it. MP is fun because it's competitive, I agree. But SP FPS campaigns that are actually good are very few and should be cherished. Just my opinion of course as everything is a matter of taste.

Absolutely loved Bioshock and have Deep Space but haven't gotten into it yet because of the weather being so nice. I agree with you that they are cool but as far as longevity and challenge nothing beats a game like Bad Company 2 or Team Fortress.

Like you said, personal preference.

No doubt. I'm not trying to compare MP and SP because they bring two very different things to the table. Half-Life was amazing in SP but the MP sucked balls (until the CS mod, obviously). Halo's campaign is absolute garbage, but the MP was a blast.

Oh yeah. Metacritic rated it at 91%. You probably haven't heard about it because it was PC only and had pretty steep hardware requirements.Hell my brand new rig with an AMD Athlon II X3 core processor and a ATI 5750 HD graphics card can only handle the high settings. It can run the Very High settings but there are frame rate issues if I do that.

Could anyone even run Crysis at max settings on its release date?

I just started playing the original Crysis and the graphics are insanely good for a 3 year old game. Impressive as hell.

It will take me a while to get used to keyboard and mouse again. Especially using a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Looking forward to Crysis 2 on the PS3 though. Of course, if I get good with the keyboard and mouse and my PC can still run the sequel at high settings I might just do the PC.

If you can run Crysis at high settings, you'll have no problem running the sequel at high settings. The sequel won't be as graphically impressive as the first one, IMO.

This isn't my pistol though. this is the weapon you start the game with. It started out allowing me several shots then I put on the silencer and it went to single shot. When I took the silencer back off it stayed single shot.

I'm not too far into the game so I might just start over and avoid the silencer.

No good?

I'm sure the single player will still be great, but the MP just feels off. Granted, this is supposedly just beta code so there is still hope. First off, it's an absolute COD clone, which I suppose I don't really have a problem with, but if you're going to do it, try and improve on it. Instead it feels like COD, but a step back. Second, the controls are sluggish and movement isn't fluid at all, which it needs to be in a game where split seconds matter. Third, it is fairly evident that there is going to be alot of people crouching in cloak waiting for people to run by and get one hit melees which will annoy the living shit out of me. Fourth, and probably my biggest fault with the game, no hit markers. I can be long ranging someone and I have absolutely no idea if I'm hitting them. That is almost unforgiveable in an online game these days. How do you adjust for lag if you have no idea if you are connecting? Additionally there are some other issues with game connectivity and some glitches, but I think those will more than likely be ironed out. I also don't like the layout of the map in the beta/demo but that's a rather small sample to judge by.

On the positive side, it looks real pretty.

The game is getting pretty well blasted on all the forums right now.

Got this from Gamefly today and I am pretty sure that the multiplayer is free in this game. It just let me hop in and I haven't seen anything so far that tells me to enter a code or tells me how much time I have left in multiplayer. Kinda surprising since it's an EA game....

The controls aren't as smooth as COD but they aren't too bad... Good enough for a fast paced shooter anyways. I think the nano suit with the armor/cloak abilities can be a bit annoying, especially the cloak. Probably going to use the perk that lets you see cloaked enemies easier on all of my classes.

I like it so far though... Probably won't be playing Homefront for a while.

But, that won't fix shitty textures. The only way they could salvage this game is with a DX11 patch AND high res textures (which would be a several gigabyte download).

Doubt the high res textures will happen.

Damn this game is so bad ass. I have never played a multiplayer game this fun. The only bad thing I can say about this game is I never get a good connection but nobody else in the lobby does either so it evens out.

Sorry that Crytek didn't live up to the expectations you PC gamers had but this game is still a shitload of fun to play. I really don't care all that much about graphics....

Best perk setup so far for me is Armor Enhance, Cloak Tracker, and Mobilty Enhance. Cloak Tracker fully upgraded is THE SHIT, I never die to cloaked people anymore. The only time I cloak is when I have to reload or regen my health. Only n00bs cloak in this game because if a guy with Armor sees you, you're dead 99/100 times.

The Scar w/ extended mags/reflex site and the automatic pistol w/ extended mags is pretty much all I use as far as guns go.

So 360 owners, is this game worth $60? I'm mostly interested in the SP campaign.

Hello? Is this thing on?

Really depends if you think a great 7 hour campaign is worth $60 I guess. It would be more like a rent for me.

Finally got my KDR above 2. Pretty good IMO since I have only gotten host twice so far and 90% of my games I have had a 2 bar connection.

I'm sure somebody/several people out there in the PC gaming community will have a hi-res texture mod within a few months, if not sooner. Go Chiefs probably has a few great forums for you to check out.

Bought it. The graphics are amazing and the combat is very battlefield-ish.
New game + mode seems to be becoming a standard for these kinds of games, thus replay ability.
I'm pleased with my purchase.

Crysis 2 DirectX 11 Support and “Advanced Graphics Settings” Being Patched in Tomorrow


Crysis 2 has been taking quite a bit of heat around the web for a perceived lack of PC polish, and while much of this criticism is unjustified, the release of a new patch tomorrow should help bridge the gap for offended enthusiasts. According to a German website (and now confirmed by Crytek), DirectX 11 support is being patched in as of tomorrow, along with a new “Advanced Graphics menu” for those who like to tweak the special effects for maximum performance.

Crysis 2 did a pretty amazing job of showing us what is still possible in DirectX9, but lets face it, if your GPU supports tessellation, you’re probably an enthusiast who isn’t known for being particularly reasonable about your demands, and that’s why we love you!

If you were looking for a DirectX 11 killer app this just might be it. You can call it a console port if you like, but this latest update will ensure Crysis 2 will be making PC’s across the globe groan for years to come.

I complained because I would like to purchase and play the game, but shit like this prevented me from buying it - kind of like Modern Warfare 2.

My angst was well documented on this forum. The main issue was no dedicated servers, and no mod tools.

Crytek looks to be responding fairly well by producing a DX11 patch...and a day 1 patch, and a patch to remove AUTO-AIM.

The PC gaming community hold games to a higher standard than just gameplay. With the amount of money they tend to put into their computers to run these games a max quality they don't want a game that is dumbed down to console graphics.

Have you seen what the original Crysis looks like at Ultra High graphical settings?

Fun game. The graphics are pretty spectacular (for a console) but there are a ton of glitches or weird shit that happens. I've shot a ton of Cell guys and they go flying. They usually wind up on roof or something. Of I'll find one humping a corner (easy stealth kill).

The aliens look terrible.

Outside of that I'm enjoying it. I dig the suit and the story.

I've made it to the hive. Not sure how much more there is.
