Crysis 2 truly rocks!
Yep, that's what I say. It's one of my favorite games to play. As good a game that Crysis 2 is, the way it's been slammed really shows how screwed up the wannabe gamers really are. If people are going to trash a game as good as this one, for the life of me I don't know why they even play games at all. If you can trash this one, you can trash every single one of them, so why bother to play.

Sigh Mike, no one said that the game was bad, the debate was over how the game looked compared to the first one and how much of an impact the dx11 patch+texture pack had on it's visuals. Most agree that the first one looks better and it's not about "trashing the game".

I still enjoy the game but after all that was said from crytek it should have looked better in my opinion. And before you get your panties in a twist again i'm just saying that it looks bad (there's plenty of really lowres textures left in it courtesy of it's console orgin) compared with the first game but if you on the other hand compare it with the rest of the console ports it looks better than most of them.

Some like slawter say that they hate the alien parts of the game but like the other parts of it, it's just opinions and we are free to express them.

Skip the "sigh" dude, I don't need your condescending attitude. And there were plenty of people who said this game was bad. "Bad" is actually a compliment to some words others have used. It does NOT look bad compared to Crysis. You focus on some fogged out scenes which account for 5-10% of the game. I focus on the other 90-95% which looks pretty damned good, as good as anything out there including Crysis. But sigh dude, apparently you really just don't know what time it is. Your arrogance is part of the problem with the wannabe game critics which you no doubt belong to.

Its always funny how everyones opinions always are worth more then the other you argue with let everyone hate or like the game on their own i never understand arguing with others how good or bad game is blabla compared to crysis1 or any other game..

The problem with PC gaming there are two schools of thought on how a game looks. One is all over taking into account art, level design, special effects, animation. The other is all about the bells and whistles to push their hardware to the limit. In terms of the latter, Crysis 2 is inferior to Crysis 1. In terms of the former. Crysis 2 probably looks better, especially with level design and animations. Sure it has some low res textures let it down, then again Crysis 1 had some crummy textures too if went exploring. Maybe with post release texture packs (Crysis 2, DA2) more low res textures missed by QA can be fixed. Remember Mass Effect 1 and Garrus, that was almost game breaking I couldn't use Garrus in my party thanks to his broken textures.

It's unfortunate those who judge a game on it's tech alone, will often rate a game poorly if it doesn't run on their hardware. Remember when Crysis 1 was poorly coded? It's still one of the best looking games out and it runs really well on new hardware. If it came out today, it would be brilliantly coded to those same people.

Slowly playing through the first one again, when I'm not absorbed by ST:TNG episodes.

Enjoying it greatly. I'm quite tempted to pick this up, if I can find an exceptionally good sale on it somewhere.
