Crysis demo - what score should it get?
Remember the scores Bioshock and Orange box are getting? Did they really deserver those scores?

If Crysis does not get a 10/10 then I'm really at a loss as to what people want or expect.

And if the scores are reduced cause of poor performance complaints, the crappy stuff Bioshock had didn't seem to effect its scores much... lame FOV, widescreen, no FSAA, etc..

I'd give it an 11 really. It is so head and shoulders above other games it's not even funny. The people that are complaining about performance and not being able to turn the setttings up seem to be disregarding the fact that even on XP with high settings this is still by far the best looking game out there.

The nay sayers also seem to be forgetting about many of the things that were said over the last 6 months or so....

"it will take PC hardware 18 months to catch up with game."

"The game will run very smoothly on high settings with todays hardware"

It looks great, runs great and is amazing fun.... and the best part: it's just a demo covering only the 1st level.... this game is going to be amazing :D

Well, I didn't like Far Cry, and Crysis seems basically just like Far Cry with prettier graphics so I wasn't hooked at all.

I voted 10.

1. Brilliant graphics
2. Varied gameplay
3. Avoidance of the old run n gun formula, tactics are needed here
4. Nice control implementation, this could have been pretty rough
5. A new level of melee (Hold em by the throat and beat them) never gets old :D
6. Looks like EVERYTHING is destructible
7. Anything that can't be picked up would be too heavy anyway..the chickens crack me up!

I'll probably add a lot more to the list after playing the full game..I just love this demo!

Re: Crysis demo - what score should it get?
Besides the graphics I don't think anything is that amazing about it. Not even the story. I think it will get a big pass because of the graphics but then again its too soon to judge the whole game based on the demo. Going by the demo I would give it a solid 8.5-9 though.

Re: Crysis demo - what score should it get?
I vote 9

The Game engine still needs to be optimized for better performance with lower specs

If the final game is better optimized then i will vote 10

Congratulations to the German company CRYTEK

The Crytek engine abilities are superior from the Unreal Engine

I voted 7.5

I don't see the beautiful graphics, I see leaves on trees that are a lot more low res than the pics and movies we were fed a year and a half ago.

I see a lot of aa needed, but bad performance even without it.

Nothing new brought to the table regarding gameplay.

It's not a horrible game, it just doesn't blow me away in any aspect.

I still feel Gears of War is better graphically and in gameplay. Multiplayer as well. Much more detailed textures, the chainsaw..Gears for graphics and online - area 51 for single player.

Crysis is too unoptimized and not original enough to justify the frustration of playing it at 25 fps at high.

9.5. It has the graphics, the gameplay, replay value, great AI, great physics, SP and MP. This game deserves at least the scores of Bioshock but it actually brings a lot more the table, incl. huge mod support and I'm sure dev support will be good too, unlike other devs that abondon their games after release..

Re: Crysis demo - what score should it get?
Whoa. Holy fanboy threads. "CRYSIS DESERVES A 10 JUST FROM THE DEMO!!" How about we wait to see what the full game offers first.

It's going to be a good game, but the controls need a little polish. Sometimes I get stuck in prone, because I'm caught on some sort of physics. Also, trying to enter a boat from the water is a trial of frustration.

Re: Crysis demo - what score should it get?
I'm going to wait for the game to come out before I vote :p Demo's don't really give the full feel of the game. Looking forward to it though!
