Amazing, I wonder how much a pc tower would cost to be able to run this on ultra, really want a true gaming pc :0

Right now, with all of the BF deals and other holiday sales, you could build a beast rig for $450-$600, depending on CPU and GPU brands. Anything made in the past 2-3 years, with plenty of RAM should do it though.

To be honest, as nice as this game looks, it still can't touch the original Crysis on Ultra....which is crazy, when you think about it.

Stagnant industry FTL.

Ya crysis 1 is unremarkable. I finally played it a few months ago on max with a hd 6850-$120 and intel g850-$90. It is crazy my $500 rig can run it at max. That is just proof that pc gaming is not that expensive.

Ryto1311d ago

I was looking at the acer 'gaming' pc, they seem good and they're not that expensive compared to some other websites selling gaming pc's

Game looks incredible...but does anyone else think that ssao is probably the most misused graphical technique of the entire generation? It went from a technique that increased shadow detail, to a technique that just adds "shadow auras" to everything. It's like this gen's lens flare.

Eldyraen1313d ago

Agreed, I love me some ssao but hate the aura it can cause (especially noticeable on light backgrounds). Sometimes it really is overdone to the point of becoming distracting (not 100% of the time but when it is noticeable it is more than a little jarring). The main issue I saw with it here was in the cave just before the "twitching" hands but some of it might had been by design to highlight the shaky effect.

Granted I'm on my phone ATM so screen size might have something to do with it--will have to check it out moment I get home on my PC.

They should have just gone with HBAO or HDAO. They look much better. Dr. Earnhardt looks horrible with that dark glow around him.

SSAO is the dark side's revenge against Bloom.

Dovahkiin1313d ago

I never have SSAO on, i don't know if it's just my graphics card, but everything has a white aura around it. Even Phelps' notebook in LA Noire.

RustedMan1313d ago

I was going to say...It seemed like everything had a weird drop shadow applied to it. Corners on walls, especially.

I thought this video looked pretty good, but something isn't sitting right with me.
Something about the wood in particular irked me in some of the interior shots. Otherwise, as an entire "world", I am very excited.

DoomeDx1312d ago

Yeah its the SSAO. Which can be disabled in the video settings. On a PC that is.
