Hell, I'd sooner just play FarCry again. That's all this is anyway is Far Cry redone.
Yes it IS funny and as I said too bad to be true. I think your software/driver setup is faulty somehow.

errr? DX10 performance is lower that is widely known, 64-bit over 32-bit has shown no performance increase. Where are you getting your information? Its not correct.

Come here and bitch with hardware that is way out of line..what did he expect, this is the ABSOLUTE bleeding edge and if he hang around here he obviously should know a thing or two about how it all works

I say go play Pong you idiot or buy a console!

Dude i totally agree with you, and don't listen morons telling that you need a better hardware. Here is the thing, you can have ****ing 2 x quad intel core 2setup with SLI 8800Ultra and this crap won't even run close to 40FPS. That's called poor coding. Now, since i'm programmer for 10-15 years now, that's totally unacceptable from my point of view.

EA Games/Crytek = bunch of morons...

This game lacks good story and it's basically Far Cry all over again. Timeshift owns this game...

Did you actually finish the game? There is LOTS more to this game than just 'FarCry'. So far, last half of the game is nothing like FarCry at all.

I guess when you spend $1200 on two top of the line video cards, more on the latest multi core CPU and another small fortune for 4 gigs of overkill RAM, you just have to justify that somehow. Personally, I think anyone who spends that kind of money then comes here with 40 frames per second to show for it in the latest game is the real moron.

From what I am seeing, people that have the latest, greatest hardware are only getting like 28 frames per second in this game. You can call me names all you want, but at the end of the day, neither of us are playing this game at anything close to what I call playable, the game is still just a remake of FarCry and I still have my $1600.

Oh, and I did try it on high settings just to see what it would look like. It still looked worse than FarCry.

I'm sick of the Crysis bashing as much as the next guy, but he has made a somewhat valid point.

Just look at those two shots. IMO, the Farcry shot looks better. It's not 100% apples to apples comparison wise, but its pretty darn close.

I'm running Crysis just fine on my rig and it looks gorgeous most of the time. I'll take the nice IQ at 30 over Farcry at 90. But really, the game should scale much better on lesser systems. For his system, either the frame rate OR IQ should be higher than it is in the Crysis shot. I understand that there is more going on in terms of AI and Physics.... but hasn't it been proved that the game is much more demanding on your GPU than your CPU? It doesn't even begin to really tap dual or quad core processors.

Point being is this: Lower IQ should never equal lower FPS regardless of what two games you're comparing. At the quality settings at which Crysis is running in that screenshot, there should be much better performance. Obviously he would have a better experience in terms of IQ and FPS if he had a better system, but he should be able to enjoy Crysis at Farcry level IQ and have a playable frame rate.

Grats, you just called most of the people here idiots. Maybe you didn't realize what kind of forum this is, and there are plenty with specs comparable to mine.

The gameplay may leave much to be desired considering the hype, but that's just my personal opinion. As for the performance, if it's not this game, it'll be another. Get used to it. If you have a passion for gaming, PC or whatnot, this fact is well known and we all love it enough to upgrade if need be. Whining about it certainly won't increase your PC's performance.

But I am with you on the unoptimization of this game. I think for the return in graphics, the hardware requirement is outlandish. Better coding is needed, and it is a mess. However that's just reality, and like I said before, driver updates and patches will hopefully fix it. As it stands now, this game is overhyped, the performance/ graphic return vs. price is shoddy, but hey, at least someone is trying to push the envelope. Hopefully it gets better with time.

And I think you need to curb your expectations, and if it's not met, well this IS a graphic card enthusiasts site first and foremost, so go and upgrade.

All in all, the game is still good, and certainly looks better than FarCry and plays better. Not the greatest thing ever, but meh. Give credit where credits due.

As for the price of my system, do your own research. That 1 year old used car you're speaking of must be relatively cheap!

EDIT: BTW, if I lower everything to that pic you posted, systems like mine can easily push past 60. I'm sure others can attest to that.

Not to mention, if you gave me 2 of them for SLI and the latest new dual core CPU (+ mainboard for it etc.), AND 3 gigs of the best RAM available, I'd still only be getting like 20 FPS and still be saying the exact same thing and posting the exact same screen shots.
