I don't want to pass judgement until the game is released and I've played it my self.

However, going off of the available footage at this point it does look like the game has heavy emphasis on console play. The story seems almost entirely unrelated to the first. It looks more like a dumbed-down reboot of the original the get in on some of that console $$$.

If so, I imagine it'll sell well on consoles, but not on PCs.

However, I can't really fault Crytek. I mean, they did make a PC exclusive with the first one. Was a huge investment. They made it the epitome of high-quality graphics goodness. They even warned us ahead of time that upon release no rig, even top-end rigs, would be able to run the game maxed.

It's released and exactly as they promised and told us it'd be, people got upset. Now they are releasing the second installation that'll be able to run on such a wide variety of hardware (which the first could do as well, mind you) and likely they'll get boo'd by the PC gamers because it strays from the roots of the first one.

It's this attitude with PC gamers that makes me think we're partly to blame for the fading out of the PC as a gaming platform.

I thought the trailer looked pretty nice. I like the new slide while shooting feature, makes you feel badass. Although i do agree the graphics look like a step back from crysis 1. But hopefully that means it'll be easier on our hardware.

Did you guys watch the same the video I did? The core gameplay mechanics are still there (suit powers, very interactive environments with at least some destruction) with some interesting additions (vertical levels, sliding). The lighting effects looked very good and NOT over the top. As far as the textures go, given that the video looks a little over compressed, I'm with holding judgment, although what I saw certainly looked pretty good.

Seriously, how many times do you guys want to walk through the woods being shot at? That got boring, quick; two games worth was enough.

Well, you could apply that to any environment. Running around New York shooting aliens seems tailored to console users.

Compared to the crap graphics in games like Call of Duty and others, I always laugh heartily when people call Crysis 2's graphics underwhelming

Personally I thought it looked awesome

I love the first 2 games with the open design and this seems to be more of the same, except with a more city oriented theme than the jungles.

Looks nice I guess but I never got to finish the first Crysis cause I thought it was boring.I hope Crysis 2 is better.

You people are a tough crowd. I think it looks fine. Crysis had some fairly low quality textures as well. It used shaders to try to cover them up. If you think fighting aliens is boring, don't buy this game, because I believe all of your enemies are aliens.
