I can't understand the logic- time is far more valuable than money. So a pirate says a game is worthy of their immensley valuable time to play a game, but not worth their money?

Honestly the whole argument of "pirating because it's not worth buying" is nothing more than a lame excuse and an attempt to justify stealing. How can it not be worth the less valuable thing (money) but worth the more valuable thing (time)? The logic does not add up.

Sure, some might say time isn't more valuable then money. To those I'll say they're ignorant and irresponsible and that they do not have their priorities straight.

In which case this could quickly turn into a morality debate but in the end it stands true that such rationale as "it's not worth my money so I pirate it" is nothing more than a feeble attempt to justify and make right and act which by it's very nature is wrong in it's entirety.

Not worth your money? Then it most certainly isn't worth your valuable and precious time- thus do not play it at all.

Well said.

What really pisses me off is the fact that Crytek has the ability to make a great sequel to a great pc game, but instead chose to cash in on the colsole market by dummying down the game graghically to play on 5yr old consoles.

Sell out plain and simple.

I think I'll hold off on my purchase as well until I'm satisfied it's patched accordlingly.

No one is even saying what is in the patch.

A patch can mean more sales so that's why they're cagey about it. If the patch doesn't have much, people won't buy the game ready for it.

It's like me really, I'm waiting to see what the patches offer before I buy it. The game should have been released with much higher quality textures, image quality and customisable settings, end of story.

Bulletstorm has far better texture quality than Crysis 2. UE3 has taken over it on the PC in my view.

I never thought I'd see a resonance cascade, let alone create one...

Crysis 2 might not be the worst game of 2011 but it certainly is imo the biggest diassapointment. I played it last night on my friends PC. I had to keep asking him " are you sure the visuals are maxed ?", terrible terrible sloppy port....Shame on you Crytek, shame on you. Now its time to redeem yourselves, go back to your roots and develop a PC only Crysis game with state of the art visuals instead of this linear, bland, jaggied sad excuse for a console game.
