Re: Crysis Single player is so so...
Updated feedback, I played for an extra 2 hours after posting my initial feedback. Got a bit further, and though the game doesn't wet my pants, I'm liking the freedom I have. I'm more of a stealthy player (or coward, whatever) that likes to kill, hide, kill hide, sneak around, and cause chaos, and right now, I really like that freedom.
As for performance, it's mute when talking about the GAMEPLAY, but I will say that so far, with my rig, it's respectable. I finally managed to get a happy medium running it in 1600x1200 with no AF, and almost everything on High, with water being Very High. I can't say the exact FPS, but it ain't 60, but it's not less than 25 either. So it's a very pretty game that's playable with current technology.
Even better, I think with patches and driver updates, the performance i will only increase, so I'm looking forward to that.
So in summary, after getting past more levels, my fondness for the game is growing. I assumed it would be like Bioshock to me, and many other game.s I'm just hard to please, and Crysis is growing on me. Don't care much for storyline, but the freedom is amazing so far.
Too bad they didn't add Korean hookers, but can't have everything right? :P
