If the game would provide better visuals, we wouldn't be able to play it with our old systems...
Like I said in the other thread, Crysis 1 was a visual revolution, Crysis 2 is a performance/optimization revolution.
This can be a really, really good thing for upcoming PC version of CryEngine 3 games
Crysis 2 performs better because it is less demanding.
