EA and Crytek should be sued for
 
Lying about minimum and recommended requirements to run Crysis.

One system with AMD 3800 X2 Dual Core + 2GB of RAM + 7800GT Video Card runs this game barely with everything low settings. The funny thing the objects are not even rendered unless you're really close to them. I don't think that any system less then 2GB of RAM and specs below will run this at all.

This game will be able to play only few people and still the experience is going to be :thumbdwn: .

This is really unoptimized game. They threw a lot of things there with no logic and reasoning behind anything.

I'm not buying this game. Maybe they should had look at Call of Duty 4 and see how the things are done right in a sense of quality/performance ratio which is perfect.

This Crytek engine won't be used by any games in the future, but actually UT3 engine which with AA support is going to kick ass for then next 2-3 years.

You're kidding right? My specs are a lot lower than yours and I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

Get over it for gosh sake.

LOL, Crysis is doing every single graphic feature possible with true high res texturesAND doing so in huge wide open areas. And mega destructible environments and physics don't forget too.

When your COD4 or UT3 can do all this, we'll see how the frame rates compare.

They didn't lie about the system requirements. Min/Recommended doesn't mean Ultra high settings.

There already are games being made using CryEngine 2.

You can't compare this to COD4. Two completely differen't games. Make a level the size of the one in the crysis demo, throw in all the objects the crysis demo has, add all the physics crysis has, then make it look as good as crysis. Then come back and tell me how perfectly smooth it runs.

Which games?

I agree that EA needs to be sued for unoptimized and buggy games (i never liked EA)

But Crytek no

Its by far the most graphic intensive game out and you are complaining about it? I agree, it still has a way to go, or at least the drivers have a way to go to run it properly. But after disabling a few things in the .cfg files it can still look extremely nice with most of the sweet effects (like the sunbeams) and run quite smooth in DX10 (and DX9). If everyone recalls, FarCry, when the HDR patch came out, ran with quite a performance hit. I remember my old 6800GT stuggling in spots. After a few driver releases however it became quite playable and fun. Hopefully by releasing the demo so early Crytek can get a better feel for what it needs to do to better optimise the game without taking out any eye candy, or at the very least nVidia gets some time to write better drivers.

yeah the posters in this thread are right.

look at the freakin' Cryengine. it's absolutely mind blowing when you get down to it.

the entire island in the demo is basically being rendered all at once. real time
lighting and shadows, physics -which are really really cool, and probably
the most taxing on the system. high res textures, this engine has it all..

there's no other game out there like this, it truly raised the bar.

ps. yeah new drivers will help, no doubt !!! im betting we could all get at least another 10-15 fps with new drivers, and for some
people that would make a huge difference.

Another 10-15 FPS for me would mean everything on Very High in DX10 @ 1920 x 1200 with 2xAA would be a very playable 32FPS :D Right now if I max everything I get about 16 FPS average occasionally dipping much lower. I so wish a driver could do that kind of performance increase.... we shall see :D

I have a very hard time believing that, and I'm pretty picky about frame rates.

I don't know what my framerates were but the game was 100% playable (and sometimes even what I would call SMOOTH) in DirectX9 mode with everything set to high at 1600x1200 on my system. The frame rates go up a lot with lower settings and lower resolutions too. There is no reason that system wouldn't be able to pull playable frame rates at 1024x768 with a mix of medium and low settings.
