Crysis may run like ass at full settings, but we've never had games that were so far ahead of everything else in graphics quality.

The engine is waiting for the hardware now.

I really think this will be a game that people will go back and play in a couple years and enjoy far more than they did last year. Everyone kept saying that 20fps was an acceptable framerate for this game, and then went on saying the gameplay sucked. Maybe people will enjoy the game more when they can play it in real time rather than watching a slide show.

I loved it (all but the vtol and ship levels...) but I ran it at rather low settings for my system to keep the framerates fairly high. I can't wait to play it again with a significantly more powerful system.
