BC2 is the answer. As much as I love Crysis's single-player campaign, its time has come and gone, and Crysis's multiplayer isn't played very much at all, so it's not worth it. BC2, on the other hand, has thousands of servers, and most of them are really good.

Stunning graphics with mediocre sandbox single player gameplay = Crysis
Stunning graphics with bad multiplayer = Crysis
Stunning graphics that are moddable to be even more stunning = Crysis


Very good graphics and decent single player = BFBC2
Very good graphics and some of the best multiplayer gameplay = BFBC2

Trying to get anywhere near 60 FPS with your super duper computer for either game = BFBC2

BFBC2 and BF2 play differently...BF2 is on a larger scale and is much more vehicle orientated.

Did you get rid of the AGP system btw ? Finally realised that AGP carl weathers is no match for a PCI-E Sylvester Stallone just like in the rocky movies Carl Weathers will die off.

There are MANY issues here that need to be addressed.

1: Flexibility is always important Bob.

2: Carl Roswell Weathers lives on through E-IDE , and as I said elsewhere, the AGP architecture itself remains DOMINANT, AGP was simply abandoned by jealous video card makers which doesn't change the superiority.

3: Aware of the instability, and as noted by a poster, this could by a reverse psychological ploy to encourage Crysis. On the other hand it could be double reverse psychology leaning towards Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Regardless, I believe I will get Battlefield Bad Company 2... If however, I do not like it, then I will hold HiCZoK personally responsible.

+ 1, very good graphics, though if you try to turn all graphics options to maximum your computer will not look so super any more.
