That WAS cool, funny thing is that I explored that bit already before I went into the base, I was really like, where is this road leading me? Let's find out, and then I ended up in that creepy graveyard. Excellent.

But when I saw those dudes with nanosuits on Delta difficulty, I went oh my goodness with jaws wide open, then oh crap!!, and just ran like a crazy person. hahaha

Just got the game in the mail yesterday, along with my preorder box (poster, art CD and bonus vehicle unlock code).

I finally got around to finishing Bioshock this morning so I'll install Crysis in a little while.

I'm a n00b so I'm playing on normal, and it is too easy. I was up in a tower overlooking the dig site, and the whole base knew I was there. I just crouched as they shot at me, and cloaked, leaned over the top of the stairs, lined someone up in my sniper scope, and picked them off one by one. Probably 15-18 guys. And none of them could figure out to throw a grenade, and then they would "forget" where I was when cloaked. LOL.

As for the graveyard fight, I had my volume way down because my toddler was asleep, and it took me a minute to figure out what the hell was going on.

It was great to see the cloaked guys trying to sneak through the grass, and the bushes moving as the approached.

So how did you all kill them on Delta? They took plenty of bullets to the skull before they went down on Normal.

On delta I kind of cheated. I used the sleeping darts which will put them down with one shot like every other enemy.

Still haven't bought this yet. Patiently waiting for better hardware. I'll see how long I can hold out.

Gonna replay it for sure with more GPU horsepower next year





Which setting did you use there? I didn't have anything like 28FPS on the carrier, but I guess I tweaked the game a bit agressively..

Run away into the corner cloaked, out of sight, use Armor mode, hide behind the tree, and then yea the skull basically.
