If the first 3/4 are the best part, I probably won't finish the game. It isn't bad by any stretch, but in all honestly I really do feel like I'm playing a very enhanced FarCry.

Good fun, looks and runs good at medium settings on my 7900GTX, just nothing that makes me want to play it again.

EDIT: Just reached "Onslaught"...rapidly changing mind about replayability.

It doesn't get any better. ::

It's like Crytek ran out of time and copy and pasted Prey for the final half ;;

Yeah I could enable 4x with virtually no loss in FPS, and it does indeed look sweet.

I've opted to use 1280x1024 with 4xAA instead of 1680x1050 with no AA..

Then you are missing a lot of cool levels like the iced island and the escape from it. The VTOL dogfights and the final carrier battle. The game is definitely worth to be played to the end (IMO).

+1

It's worth it, but it's just not quite as strong as the first bits.

+10.

EDIT: Just finished the game - I loved the ending. It was a bit on the canned, predictable side, but very well done imho.

Another Kudos to Crytek, can't wait til I have a next gen video card to really enjoy the eye candy.

Might have already said this earlier in the thread (or in a different thread) but, based on the ending it looks like we'll have more alien-type levels in Crysis 2.

Really hope they find a way to get back to the good old jungle.

What is so terrible about the aliens? Jungle is nice, but I'm not opposed to being in an alien vessel or even an alien planet. That'd be awesome! I live on earth, I see the natural beauty day in and day out.

Give me something different! lol

Am I the only one that feels this way?
