    I don't even have Crysis due to my crappy graphics card, and now they're already kicking out the successor... do I even need to buy Crysis then?

    I'm looking forward to this. They have a chance to redeem themselves after the tech demo known as Crysis was released to consumers. Looking forward to seeing what they do

    The CryEngine itself is probably as scaleable as Crytek says it is. I just think Crysis is a poor implementation of it.

    After the fallout from poor coding in Crysis, I won't be buying it. SP was awesome, but I bought games for MP mostly. After the Crysis MP failure, my clan split and I quit gaming for the most part. I'm not giving them another 50 bucks after that crap.

    I'll be buying Warhead when it comes out because I want to see if they put my money from the last EA purchase to good use, and I want the third one to be even better.

    Same. I am willing to give CryTek a second chance. I just want to see the graphics that were promised at the first technology expo that it was shown at.

    I really cannot understand why some people insist saying nVidia cheats and Crysis is poor coded...

    If you ever give a shot at tweaking the damn engine, you will realize why Crysis IS Crysis and it is the most demanding game ever.

    I realize many of you are just unsatisfied with Crysis performance, and again, the problem lies between the chair and the monitor
    Are we there yet?

    I loved the game's performance (aside from memory leaks, but those are trivial). I hated it from the administrative side, since I ran a server for it.

    Crysis is visually the best game ever, and is proportionally demanding.

    I can't believe there are actually people who praise CoD4's "coding effectiveness" because it "runs faster". I have the following rebuttals:

    1. Crysis looks much better than CoD4
    2. In Crysis you are in ABSOLUTELY HUGE environments and at any time you see a radius of 20+km containing an intense forest.

    Crysis SP was awesome and I'm looking forward to anything Crytek has to release.

    I don't know why people keep saying COD4 runs better. I have an A64 3000+ 1 gig of ram and an 8800GT and COD4 is so processor limited that it is unplayable for me even on low settings. Crysis I can play at 12x10 on Medium/High and I get 20-40fps avg (depending on the area and settings). I could even play it with the same system except with an x800xt and it ran fine on low. Only problem Crysis has for me is with alot of physics going on, eg blowing up a building. That's not even to mention how much more is going on on the screen in Crysis than COD4.

    Also, I remember reading something from Crytek awhile back saying how they have optimized the engine for Multiple cores and I think 64-bit (not sure on that one). Along with some other improvements I was impressed by. Hopefully they'll be using that version of the engine for this next game. I for one am looking forward to this.

    QFT... great looking game, but it should run better...

    And maybe Crytek can do something about NVIDIA 'cheating' to get better FPS in the game.
    Is this a joke? It was a driver issue that was corrected MONTHS ago...

    I bet it will run better than Crysis, They have had a few months to tweak it now and they will be more familiar with the engine, they will be able to pull off similar effects more efficiently etc

    The mp was better, though; but i'm still a css-type of guy.

    +1 hopefully this will be the real Crysis we were led to believe was coming some months ago.

    I loved Crysis. Good handling, very dynamic. I used to play MOHAA a lot which requires constant leaning left and right. Never found a game that focused on leaning much, but Crysis is also very smooth in that regard.
    Can't comment on MP but it's mostly the handling of a game that makes me like a game.

    yawn.




    They hype the hell out of a game, release it and it runs like then they refuse to patch it? Then they announce another game thinking everything will be alright? This will more than likely be another nividia tech demo marketing tool like crysis and farcry were.

    Maybe if this were free it would be a consolation for dicking their fans over by not patching crysis, but I doubt this is free

    Crysis has a great MP community and modding community too, performance is OK so no patching needed.
    Are we there yet?

    totally agreed. COD4 was great until they had to kill off the Marine. It all went downhill from there, imo.

    They said they weren't patching Crysis for a specific reason. This is it. Get over it. I have a feeling this will run much better than Crysis does anyway.
