Instead of 8800gtx, recommending a $150, 4850

prob wouldn't sting too many people and would prob get you pretty good fps at a decent resolution...
I remember Steam had the date listed, but they removed it. It now shows October 2008. Can't remember the date sadly.

If you think otherwise you're just stupid.

I'm willing to bet $100 it will run better.
You're the stupid one, for thinking it'll run better with no proof. Sure, it may, but you just said it'll run better just because you said so.

Crytek has nothing to do with FC2, FC2 does not use the Crytek engine.

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.

jAkUp speaks the truth, FC2 is Ubisoft.
