Aaaand I just beat the game.... man.... it was intense. Last fight was unreal. I smelled the way they were going to end it a mile away. In true action movie begging for a sequel fashion.... They kicked the door wide open for Crysis 2 although I do hope that crysis 2 has plenty of jungle human vs human fighting as I enjoyed that much more than fighting the aliens.

only 1 vtol mission. It's pretty neat but I can't call it the hilghlite of the game. nor one of the more memorable parts of the game.

Revs, it was perfectly playable at those settings. I've been playing oblivion (before I got the ultra) at 20~25 fps since it came out so I'm used to those frame rates so it doesn't bother me the way it does some others. But as I've said a few times, Crysis SEEMS much smoother at those lower frame rates than most, if not all, other games.

I read in a post somewhere else, that the retail version of the game has been censored compared with the demo. Can you verify that there is less blood than in the demo e.g. the starting scene with Azetek (no blood dribbing from him)?

If this is true, than I will reconsider my decision to buy the game, because I would not like to support such a lame decision ..

I'm picking my copy up on the way back from school today. Hopefully Best Buy will have their copies since Gamestop won't price match. I would just get it at CC but I doubt they will have their copies in stock today. If all else fails, I'll just get my reserved copy from GS like planned.

No there's blood. There was never much blood to begin with. When you kill an enemy and they fall over, blood pools up under them, you get the blood splatters on the screen when you're getting shot and blood bursts when you shoot enemies. I skipped the cut scene with Aztek just becuase I've seen it a hundred times at this point.

The blood does seem a bit darker though for some reason. It's almost like them being covered in oil rather than red blood.

Still, choosing to pass up this game simply due to low amounts of gore would be an incredibly foolish decision. This has been one of the most satisfying gaming experiences I've ever had. I beat it yesterday afternoon and have gone back and quick loaded from where the demo leaves off. I'm only through to the next major objective and I spent easily over an hour JUST getting to the objective and then another hour infiltrating the base slowly and patiently. Much more gratifying. This method could easily drag the game out into a 15+ hour experience.

There is a "check box" for "Blood"...I believe in the demo it was checked, in the retail I had to manually check it. Believe me, Crysis definately has "Blood"

No offense, but that has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. Not buying a game just because there is less blood? OMG.
