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


It was 22 bucks the other day..

I saw that, but didn't have the $22 to spare.

Not only that, I'd much prefer purchasing it either retail, or through Steam. Simply my preference.

There will be other sales, so I'm not too concerned.

Much appreciated, buddy. I've mostly been putting money aside to do some extensive work on my car- gotta' a rather long trip coming up next month and want to be certain she's up to the task.

However, playing through the first Crysis now if such a good deal arises I'll likely give into temptation. Especially now that the game is fully patched.

The music was a stand out for me. The theme composed by Hans Zimmer really sets the mood.

Iz tempted. Would much prefer more like $20. Really wish I hadn't missed that $22 sale.

If you need something to play Deemed it's a good game, length SP. If you have other stuff to play wait. It's a big enough game that it will go on sale again. Maybe when the console ports of the original Crysis come out...

I'm not so certain I *need* anything to play right now, just pretty sure I'll enjoy it.

Right now I'm pretty occupied with ST:TNG episodes, and for gaming going through and playing the original Crysis. I still haven't play Warhead... maybe I should get that first?

Best setting I've found for 560ti @ 1920 is everything at Ultra, Hi Res Textures On, and No DX11, which gives me 45fps+.

Here's some shots with DX11, Ultra, and Hi Res, which gives me 30fps.
