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.
Gears isn't on the same level graphically as this game. Gears is a nice looking game and has nice art, but Crysis blows it away technically.
It's also more fun too. Corridor shooters get boring - Gears can be played through all difficulty modes, but then the fun is over unless you're into its MP. Crysis has multiple ways of doing things - and things never quite happen the same way each playthrough.
Crysis IS well optimized, it's just that it's so damn detailed that it stresses even powerful hardware. Nvidia's drivers need a bit of work though.
