That's on a Barton 3200+ and a 6800GT with plenty of settings on medium too, and this guy claims he can't run it on a X2 3800+ and a 7800GT!

This game will be able to play only few people and still the experience is going to be .

This is really unoptimized game. They threw a lot of things there with no logic and reasoning behind anything.

I'm not buying this game. Maybe they should had look at Call of Duty 4 and see how the things are done right in a sense of quality/performance ratio which is perfect.

This Crytek engine won't be used by any games in the future, but actually UT3 engine which with AA support is going to kick ass for then next 2-3 years.
Go tell someone who cares, i'm sick of reading these useless threads from someone that feels they were cheated somehow, its ****ing demo dude.

Something everyone is overlooking here. The original poster is running VISTA. VISTA = the sux for gaming, aka a 35%-45% decrease compared to XP. Run Crysis on XP and get back to us.

I was also annoyed at first by the performance.

However, now I have reconsidered my judgment. I tweaked the game and got an overall great graphical experience for a good framerate. Also, no other game has outdoor environments that are so huge with the level of physics there is. It's simply unfair to compare it to other shooters.

I think it's an impressive achievement and the gameplay is awesome.

UT3 engine is good too (Bioshock looked great). Both engines have their uses...

I'm running vista with everything turned up, and the game runs fine.

One of my friends was able to run Crysis on a Pentium 4 2.8GHz, 512MB ram, and an AGP X1600. He said it was one of the best games hes ever played, even at 20-23fps with the lowest settings. It all depends on how you look at - Crytek shouldn't be sued for pushing the envelope maybe a bit far. If anything, it will only spur more rapid growth in the industry since pretty much everyone here would pay for a 9800 or similar card when they had the money. I'm sure Nvidia knows that, and if they don't have something up their sleeve at the moment, they are most definitely accelerating development.

Once again this is a pre-release demo, patch and drivers are coming. This game is absolutely amazing. Too bad you're going to miss out.

Honestly six, if you are having that bad a time gaming on Vista you're doing something wrong. I'm not giving you a hard time buddy, but all my games with the exception of Dark Messiah ran just fine on Vista home, both 32 and 64 bit.

I'm running this game everything very high except for shaders high, resolution 1680*1050. It runs and it's very playable...i'm talking about other systems.
