MP can be both extremely frustrating (expecially when you gets owned, even more than other games like TF2 etc., dunno why), but also very satisfying at times. Lag is a little issue, but noting too serious. I do hope that Crytek improves netcode in the upcoming patches however.
Yeah, I forced it through the CP. I'm not sure of the exact performance impact, but 16x AF made the game noticeably slower. I set it back to 8x because its hard to see much of a difference between the two at only 1280x960. Its very playable, but definitely slower than it was with no AF.

I wish the AF looked a bit better though honestly. I think the parallax mapped textures get a bit distorted at a distance and enabling AF makes it sharper but makes the distortion more visible.
