Gee big suprise.

I totally agree, its a small step not the giant leap they made it seem like. (or half the members on this forum make it seems like)
Did you actually read anything in this thread other than the post you replied to?

There is no indication yet that it won't look as good as in the videos...

On a side note, I have to say I think some of us (me for sure) are desensitized to such nice graphics.

I'm at work and a few people walked up to me and thought these were pics of a movie and I'm like " Noooooo, it's crysis, and I'm actually bitching about how it looks" and they looked at me like I just told them I sucked a horses **** and then did some crack in the bathroom at lunch. lol.

Maybe I need to just enjoy what's in front of me.

But I'll still say the jungle doesnt look as lush and the lighting not as real when compared to the intial movies. But it's still nice, nonetheless.

So you're suggesting they held back on options for the demo? That excuse is getting old. Heard it for too many recent releases and it doesn't make a lot of sense economically.

I can even prove it. There are ocean shaders missing for example. They are there but don't work. Like many of the materials.
Open up Sandbox2 and try to select a material for the ocean. You can select a shader for each material. But the only one that currently works is the water one. The waterocean-shader doesn't work. That's why we can't have waves in the demo like in the presentation movies.
Of course no one can be absolutely sure that the final version will contain those shaders. We will have to wait.

But you should perhaps look at the other screenshots in this thread. The original poster used a very bad comparison. Me and others have posted screenshots that like much more like the original one from the presentation.

Smells like red AMD propaganda to me...

Those new shots have overdone the lighting it needs to be somewhere in the middle

Crytek have got it pretty easy. Promise the world and the fanbois will convince *themselves*. no need to actually achieve anything.

Yeah that's right, Crytek didn't achieve anything

Just wait for the bloody final version, then makes your verdict..

That guy at inCrysis who made that jungle fight map/video is very reluctant to upload his map.

I think those videos are from the tech demo, just showing off what Crysis is capable of. Of course they had to scale the graphics down a bit for the actual game so that we all are able to play it.

We'd all like to know this but no one has come up with an answer except for the guy that made the new map.
