Looks WAY better now! can't believe I thought no AA was acceptable. and the frames didn't take a massive hit at all. still quite playable although in some areas some noticable slowdowns occur.
definately a much more enjoyable experience with 4xAA enabled.
Gameplaywise I'm really enjoying it. lots of sneaking and lots of shooting. it really is a classic shooter experience. really enjoyed the harbour level and taking down the choppers is really fun. Alot of people said the gameplay was not so good with crysis but I Think it's fantastic. nice open world, unscripted gameplay that is bug-free (unlike stalker).
been playing for 4 hours so it's time to go to bed.
p.s. girlfriend is complaining that she is a PC game widow.
Yep, agree completely
When I first played it on my 8800GTS, it was definitely slow and limited my gameplay options.
Playing with my 4870, I had a lot more options and it was a hell of a lot more enjoyable
Wait till you get to Warhead, that was definitely fun.
