DX10 sucks, we can agree on that.. or at least the Crysis implementation of DX10 does.



Just finished the game.. awesome. I don't care what Crytek or EA says, it plays and feels like an expansion. Same arsenal + a few new weapons, a few new vehicles, same-conflict-different-perspective like HL: Opposing Force feels very expansionish. Not that it's bad, people just don't know what to call it. We say "so did you play the new expa.. seq.. the new crysis franchise game yet?"

I liked it though. All enthusiast except shadows on gamer, 1680*1050 no AA or AF, 25-35 FPS throughout the game for me. It was probably designed so that my spec should have played it on gamer settings, but I'd rather have 25 FPS instead of 35 and know it looks the best. I'm gonna replay Crysis and Warhead at some point when I get a new PC or graphicscard (perhaps next-gen after GTX280?). Good pacing, nice storytelling, gorgeous graphics, a little bit better and more stable performing that Crysis, new atmospheric effects and better lightning, still good soundtrack, more action-packed (both good and bad), overall a good experience. Still prefer Crysis if I had to choose though because Warhead unfortunately is more linear which is probably the game's weakest point. And I for one liked the change of pace and more gameplay variation of the first Crysis. Still good game though. Finished the game in aprox. 6 hours which was what I expected for the price; short n' sweet.

I do hope I can find the for trying out Crysis Wars soon...

The typical line is "We know more about computers and Vista is all messed up wahh wahh wahh"

Anyone know if there's anything like the Advanced A.I. mod - for Warhead?

The vanilla A.I. just plain sucks, as usual.

I think I might go ahead and pick this one up since I have a Best Buy gift card with $30 on it. Crysis Wars looks like it's nice pickup on the Crysis MP so maybe it'll be worth picking up.

Crysis looked better when it wasn't yet released and there was only talk about it.

I wasn't impressed when I began playing it last week.

I remembered it looking better in images when magazines praised it.

I guess nothing ever looks as good when you play it.

The shrubs and leaves look awful especially up close. Water isn't too impressive either

Warhead looks a little better, but still nothing amazing.

Great games though!

The water isn't impressive? Are you smoking crack?

I agree. Crysis was dulled down big time at it's release. I can remember watching these awesome videos about how realistic the graphics were going to be and the real game looks nothing like that. Guess our hardware isn't up to par yet? I'd like to see what the CryEngine 2 is capable of in about 2 more years on that hardware
