The game will be a step down from Crysis for sure, it will look worse, play worse and sound worse. But thats what happens when you develop games with console retards in mind.

If they actually make this game optimized for computers that exist I would be the happiest person a live.

Hunts one of those who consider it to run poorly unless you can max it on an 8800.

I'm listening to the gametrailers podcast right now and they're talking about Crysis 2 and all the head of the site said he looks forward to playing it but he never played Crysis because he doesn't own a "$5,000 computer."

TEH MEDIAS BIAS!

I don't think I should run it max on an 8800, but it shouldn't run as poorly as it does. Yes, it runs fine on PCs NOW, but it shouldn't take years before a computer can actually run a game maxed out. IMHO, God of War 3 looks better and it runs fine on a PS3... so...

Not to go into this for like the 100th time, but the game was made to scale... it was made to run on average computers then on, say, medium settings, and run on future computers at higher settings. This is nothing new, it was hard to max a ton of games when they first came out back in the day, before everything was a port. The alternative was just to remove the high and very high settings and rename medium ULTRA HIGH and then people would never have complained, but then the game would not look as good today. A little restraint and you could have played it perfectly fine on an 8800 which... shocker... is exactly what I did.

It's true, Crysis isn't the best looking game anymore and still not the smoothest. It's a gamble trying to use tech a head of it's time, often you'll have an amazing looking game at launch, inspire a few hardware sales, receive bad feedback, then down the track have a game only a few play because they spent so much on their Crysis PC they can't afford anything else. ::

I actually believe the game ran better on my 8800GTX than my 260GTX :: Maybe because I just had more fun the first time. ::

I think Crysis is probably still the best looking game that is trying to look realistic... I can't even think of anything that would compete with it in that realm, honestly.

Future proofing your game is fine... I don't need to run it maxed out instantly. But the fact remains that Crysis 1 was unoptimized garbage.
