I hated the zero-g level(s) of crysis - will I hate this too?

I can't get used to it. I almost get motion sick playing it, and performance isn't that great either.

I tried some of it last night. I wish there was some sort of offline training or botmatch or something so I could get used to the controls, weapons, and maps. I'm also amazed that there isn't a Benchmark mode or something in the game, considering its by Futuremark. Is it using the same engine behind Vantage?

There are a few flight training servers with damaged turned off. I would suggest joining one of those.

As for the engine, I would assume it's based on what powered vantage. Probably the most cost-effective thing to do.

At first i was a little bit frustrated because i thought that there would be a lot campers, but it's important to play tactically and to hide and use cover. So it's not simply floating around and shoot at everything that moves and it definitely takes some time to get used to it, but then it's really huge fun.

Regarding the performance.. i guess my system is at the lower end of this forum, but i have no problems. But it's not a console port, so it really uses the hardware
Disabling AO and reducing AA, post processing effects and the resolution should help those with weaker systems a lot.

Everyone who downloads porn knows who Sasha Grey is. Her early stuff was... magical.

I dislike how she is trying to bring bush back.
