I say again, adjust the lighting sliders in the demo, make sure you are moving (so it triggers the motion blur and hides some inperfections with it) and it will look VERY much like the picture on top.

The ingame screenshot function doesn't capture changes to the lighting sliders, if I had Photoshop installed, I'd make a proper screenshot with adjusted lighting values (contrast, brightness and gamma only) and it would look very much like screenshot on top.

Edit:

The idea by the comparision is trying to illustrate that Crytek that has lowered the visuals on the retail product vs. the video that the capture was taken form. Do I know if that happened or not? No I don't, there was at least 1.5 years development between the video and anything is possible but lets not forget that if the video was really showcasing whats possible with CryEngine2, it doesn't automatically mean that Crysis has to have it, right? Knowing that, I still stand by what I said by saying the comparision is flawed for several other reasons:

1. Location of the demo (bottom) screenshot (not enough direct light),
2. no motion blur,
3. the lighting values (brightness/contrast/gamma) have not been adjusted and thats why its not dark enough in the shadow area
4. no video compression blur (the original video was divx one, this step adds some general blur too)

My point: If all these flaws would be accounted for, the comparison would be fair but also a lot more even.
Mate, I'm just saying... Crysis looks amazing. I would never expect it to look like the first picture, as I personally believe it's a concept picture, a touched up one. I think the game looks great, even on High settings, plays great and that's all that matters. I think some people have way too much time on their hands, and I don't mean you.

If you're going to compare then you really should use screenshots of the exact same area and setting.
Comparing two different scenes then of course the lighting will look different, with shadows being cast by completely different objects and so on.
For an objective comparison you need both screenshots to be of the same scene.
And by the way, the bottom supposedly DX10 shot certainly doesn't look like it was taken with Very High settings, in fact that's how it looks when I turn down the settings to med. - low.

Yeah, I just tweaked the time of day settings. There are actually very much settings you can customize and which give you very different looks.

Regarding the Crysis Alpha/Demo comparison:

I am sure that you could create a picture like the first one from the old/new comparison if you create a similar environment and adjust the lighing correctly.
