Not many games come anywhere near this level of realism. I think this game engine is far more of a marvel at present time than CryEngine 1 was at its time. We need games to start pushing the graphics industry to come up with something better. AMD has really been stagnate in coming up with competitive products and NVIDIA is just sitting with their 8 series laughing all the way to the bank making record profits.

ohh yeah and that means that the coding couldnīt be done bad per automatic? I mean you are 100% sure Crytek couldnīt have done anything wrong with the game? Totally flawless guys?......i donīt know about that i mean everyone ca do mistakes.

Well if that is the fact then Crytek is one of few very very good game devs.

Crytek is a good game/engine dev company. Keep in mind Crysis was not JUST a single project it was the merger of 2 projects. CryEngine 2 & the video game Crysis. Development of a full engine ALWAYS takes a long time, look at the id Tech 4 (D3) engine, or Unreal 3 engine, Source engine, etc. All of these engines took a lot of time and so did their accompanying first-party games. Give these guys some credit, they've managed to literally rape our hardware (which is what "HD games" should do), Doom 3 & Far Cry started out much the same.

I don't see 9800GTX making a huge performance impact, I'd expect though average performance with Very High settings. We will need next-gen refresh to see better-then average performance on such settings. Not to mention instant support for the MOD community, something we don't see very often.

And nothing is flawless in the software industry, get off your "OMG It's not perfect" high-horse and welcome to reality. Crytek team did a great job, released a bleeding-edge game and has given us a gauge for future performance. Will there be patches? Of course, even console games receive patches...

Duh obviously nothing is perfect. But I think it's obvious one can only optimize a game so much. They are pushing the boundaries of the hardware. This is what Crytek does. It's silly to think that current gen hardware will run a next gen game 100% perfect. I am a little biased to be on their side considering their legacy with Far Cry. They pushed hardware then and they are doing it again.

Not too early I must say. But just the right time to kick the lagging gpu technology into gear. Hopefully newer cards will be able to handle this monster.

While I may personally not like the game much, the technology is great. It hurts my pride a bit to see my system being forced onto all 4 and violated in such a way by just one game, but hey, it's for the better. We're all taking it for the team, whether we like it or not.

And besides, patches and drivers will help out. The engine is still too new and is not fully optimized yet, IMO, but time will fix it.

Can you imagine when the hardware comes out and future games uses this technology? Hmmmm.

Crytek is 2 for 2.

The general themes are as follows:

1. If my computer can't play it at maximum, shame on them for pushing the limits.

2. If my computer can play it at maximum, shame on them for not pushing the limits.

Default Re: Crysis was released too early

Ok guys. I'm going to burst your bubble...

This game is VERY well optimized, and I have conclusive evidence to support this. You know what the minimum requirements are for this game?

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz (3.2 GHz for Vista), Intel Core 2.0 GHz (2.2 GHz for Vista), AMD Athlon 2800+ (3200+ for Vista) or better
RAM: 1GB (1.5GB on Windows Vista)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (Radeon X800 Pro for Vista) or better
VRAM: 256MB of Graphics Memory


That's verbatim from the website. Look at the specs in my 2nd rig. With the exception of 2GB of ram, it's the minimum requirement listed. Well, I've taken the liberty of installing Crysis on this system.

Bear in mind that my system tanks (in a bad way) on Team Fortress 2 with anything more than 16 players on a server. If you get about 10 of those guys on screen at one time, my framerate dips down to about 10 fps. It's virtually unplayable in those cases... so here's the kicker.

Crysis runs VERY VERY well on my system. Surprisingly, not only is it playable at lowest settings, but it runs around 30-45fps constantly in single player. I've actually been able to set several of the settings up to medium, and it STILL runs very well (between 20-30 fps). Bear in mind, with this computer I do not see any of the cool effects that highend DX9/DX10 rigs see, but it is totally and completely playable. I would venture to say that a 6600 GT would work as well. It would be slow, but it would probably work.

I'm sorry guys, but the boys at Crytek put a lot of work into making this game so it will run on hardware that is several years old. The game scales amazingly well on a P4. I'm actaully blown away that this game runs better than Counter Strike: Source on this PC.

In a few years, this game is going to be rock solid, but right now, it scales well. Just live with it please.

great another genius

that was knowed since day one. Game never supposed to run on max settings NOW. What is this stupid obsession with everything on max. Even on Medium-High it looks amazing.

I agree with the statement that Crysis was released to early. My opinion on this has nothing to do with the hardware side however. I just feel the game had a craptacular "Oh darn we ran out of time so lets roll credits here" ending. A game should have some kind of closure even if they want to leave some things open for a sequel. This game has no closure at all. Your in the game and then BAM! credits....
