Seems like Crytek did a Epic on us, they better damn not go that route and release the full game with console interface only, no gfx settings etc and horrible texture brought straight from the PS3 into the PC version like Epic did with UT3. It took epic like 2 years to fix UT3 but by then it was too damn late, most people had already jumped ship by then.

Well it has come to light that Crysis 2 will actually release on the PC platform as a DX9 game and will be patched at a later date to DX11. SERIOUSLY CRYTEK?!?!? Thats it.....I'm not buying this steam pile of Nano-suit manure.

Don't know about you guys but i enjoyed the PC demo a hell of a lot more than the 360 demo.....probably due to the fact that on the 360 demo i had my ass handed to me on a silver platter by some pre-teen who probably was genetically enginered for FPS gamepad usage with Zen like Matrix reflexes up the anti....I bearly got 2 kills in the demo i kid you not, but with the PC demo it was like my glory days playing Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix Multiplayer.....Love it and i cannot wait for this game to come out.

Off for one more hit to sooth the pain

EDIT: This no sound issue with 7.1 channel sound is very irritating

Hated the FOV, the gfx was underwhelming to say the least. I'd love to see a fps mp game without perks, upgrades etc in the style of cod. I'm just tired of everything being so samey, get the killstreak = get some lame airstrike bs bonus. Apart from the nanosuit i can't really say that this felt much different to play than mw2.

And i hope crytek includes a whole new texture set as most of these looked ported directly from the 360 or something.

So... I played ten minutes of this. So these are just quick shooting from the hip comments on a very short period of play.

Graphically... this can't be the real crysis 2. Even at the highest dx9 settings (which is what the demo i played is limited to), the single player graphics have to be of higher quality than this. Also, although my frames would stay between 40-60 on maxium at 16x10, performance for what was displayed on the screen was kinda lacking. I'm sure that will be corrected with driver updates and what-not. It does concern me a little considering this is only dx9. 20-30 might not be out of the question once i boot up the retail game in dx11. Textures and the cartoonish lighting was what bothered me the most. Reminded me of f.e.a.r 2 graphically.

Played with kb and a little bit of gamepad. Didn't like the change in controls. Pretty much a non issue though, as I'll get used to it with more playtime.

Gameplaywise it was kinda like eating a pb&j. Solid, a little tasty, but also dull and boring. One sci fi black ops coming right up...

So far, a pass.

I can't get used to it cause Crysis 1 was Epic Win because it was not meant for Consoles. Do you realize that Crysis 2 will be worse looking than Crysis 1. I bet Bulletstorm looks better than Crysis 2

Gee whiz, I bet Crysis 2 game-play is going to suck balls because it'll look like crap right

Everyone knows the best games have the best graphics. Those that don't have the best graphics ALL suck.

Just came off the demo played at 1920x1200 and averaged 40 fps on hardcore setting. Was fun for about 10 mins and then i quickly got bored as this sort of multiplayer fps gaming is imo getting old and the nanosuit made no difference. The graphics were quite good for DX9 although i never felt impressed by them.

The motion blur makes me sick along with the FOV and i am now left feeling quite nausea with a slight headache. I think it is quite obvious that this game was built for console which in this day is something PC gamers are getting used to. However it is no ground breaking game that Crysis was in terms of visuals at its time, again something i expected.

Will withhold judgement untill the final game but i do hope they ramp it up a bit especially for the DX11 gamers.

Agree with the comments above. Sure graphics don't make great gameplay, but 1 into testing out this demo I have to say graphic aside, this might be the most disappointing game to come out in a decade.

I didn't say worst game, that belongs to another title, but severlr disappointing. It's Crytek, since FarCry they have broke the barrier for PC graphics. Crysis followed. The thing is, the gameplay in both of those titles were great. Fast forward to Crysis 2, and it's clear that the Crytek team has been swayed by other motives.

On another game this might have worked as a port. Dead Space 2 seems to be okay with the consolized version, but we expect more from Crytek.

To me, the King of PC gaming has fallen. I put Crytek up there at the top, so far...unless something drastic changes, this will end dissapointing more than just me.

So I understand it's just a demo and they will tweak here and there, but the core of the game is built for the console and for a game like this, it's not going to work.

Tbh Sazar, in this case, for THIS game the graphics are more important than other games because of the graphical impact the first one had. The demo does look worse than crysis 1 and not with a small margin either. People like soet have been drooling , wanking off over the first game and the prospect of even BETTER graphics for the sequel but the demo was bland and the graphics couldn't make up for the gameplay as they did to some extent in the first one.

I never liked the first one much and if the rumors are true that it will be dx9 on release, that a later patch will introduce dx11 i can't say ill buy it until if/when that happens because i really don't want to be stuck with another UT3 and wait for patches that attempts to "unconsolize" it.
