If you want to buy this game to benchmark your system like we all did when Crysis 1 came out then don't... buy it if you like to see some better game play than Crysis 1.
I have to wait for the weekend to play but I'm really looking forward to it. IGN gave it a glowing review. I like the streamlined nansuit from the MP demo. I think the extreme graphics of the first hurt sales so it makes sense that they toned it down a bit.
It looks like they were pressed for time and probably didn't finish some PC specific extras.
Regardless, I support Crytek. They've done a lot for PC gaming. They've made some of my favorite games. They deserve to cash in and be rewarded for the great work they've done in 3D graphics.
