Far Cry 2 will run better than Crysis.

If you think otherwise you're just stupid.

I'm willing to bet $100 it will run better.

no. I've yet to see compelling screenshots of FC2 that shows any substancial difference in graphics. It's like they took cryengine 2 and rather than jungle, you're in the savanna.

It's like they tweaked the explosions and smoke and retained the same grass, trees, shading on textures, etc. They can say it's a totally different game engine all they want but the fact of the matter is, when I look at the screenshots posted at places like IGN and gamespot, it looks like a crysis mod to me.

Oh and you guys are referring to concept screenshots in your arguement, lets not forget what Crytek did with crysis by showing us one thing and giving us something else, not to mention Cevat Yerli saying they would eventually give us higher resolution shaders or whatever he claimed they didn't ship with the game that would re-revolutionize it's graphics when newer hardware was out.


Anyways, yeah they can make a pretty game but that doesn't excuse them from all the lies and deceit they've fed us.

Quad core optimization? Lie
DX10 exclusives? Lie
Upgrade patch for next gen hardware? Pff.. don't count on it.
New engine for FC2? HA!
8600gts recommended?

They need to cut the BS and say look, bring at least an 8800GTX to the table or suffer with washed down bottom of the barrel graphics. They wouldn't make any friends with that kind of statement but it was the harsh reality crysis owners discovered during the betas which again, crytek promised better performance with the full release but OH What's that??? No performance increase at all? What a surprise!


Understand that I'm not slamming their product because I loved crysis; I'm mad at them for saying one thing and giving us something else. I'm mad that they still are playing us for idiots who don't know any better when the truth is right in front of us. It makes ZERO sense to totally build and engine up from scratch when they've got an engine that has years of potential right in front of them. It would be like valve taking source and tossing it aside to write a totally new engine for EP1 and another for EP2. No, they improved upon what they had and it seems like that's what was done for FC2. I see tweaks here and there to an already familiar face and if you guys don't see that, it's YOU who needs to take a good look at the screenshots and compare vegetation, smooth surfaces, the ground textures, the water surface, etc.

I hate defending a company like Noobisoft, but anyways:

Presumptuous of you to say that considering all the screens of FC2 look photoshopped and are not high-res enough to make judgment regarding the texture.s

What? Crysis looked the same in the screens they released (early screens of Crysis looked quite bad, infact) the performance was crap, it was to be expected, low level of optimisation and too much to render.

Right, because the best marketing strategy is alienating the gamers before the game itself hits the shelves? Get real, I am not sure why people think game companies/developers should be Barnie-esque fuzzy/clean. It's a business, you lie and mess with people's perception to make money and sell copies. This happens in every field, gaming is no exception.

Regarding Crysis's performance, blame Crytek's apathy.

You're rather delusional if you think Ubisoft would license CE2. In all honesty, even know they can, they wouldn't; because that would shoot up the developmental costs for every IP they make. Plus, with an in-house proprietary engine, you can tweak everything to your liking, you can remove what you don't need and add what you do. You can't get that level of personalization/customization from a third-party engine, regardless of how much you mod it.

And really, I don't care enough about FC2 to compare screens of it to another FPS. It's a trivial matter at most, and I suggest you stop taking it so seriously.

I wonder if 512mb of VRAM is going to be enough for 1920x1200...

It wasn't about comparing screenshots, it was originally about the fact that the recommended system requirements for Crysis yielded sub par performance and that judging from how crysis performs, the now released FC2 requirements and recommended hardware leads me to beleive that once again, those in possession of say an 8600gts will be quite dissapointed when they're only able to play at a very low detail and resolution.

recommended specs are not for 1920x1200 with everything on ultra high 8xaa.

recommended specs are mostly for about 1280x720, medium/high no aa, no af playing at about 30fps.

As the consoles -high though 30fps on consoles I doubt unless they make great perfomance improvement since the latest showcase on the consoles, and then if they will do true HD res...

If people can find the medium settigns on consoles satisfying I think PC gamers with low-ned hardware can to, all running at 720p!

Do you want them to say "yeah, F that, you need a 600 dollar card to run the game" ? It's a business man, you can't alienate or scare away potential buyers by listing inane requirements.

Screwing your perception and deceit are just part of the game. (no pun)

I've lost track, when is this one due out, eta??

Instead of 8800gtx, recommending a $150, 4850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102747

prob wouldn't sting too many people and would prob get you pretty good fps at a decent resolution...
