Don Allen gives a quick look at how Crysis 2 looks in 1080p on the PC using a Xbox 360 controller.
gameplay and video loook so clean...
I wonder what kind of a rig this is being played on. Does it say if I click on the link? Edit @ FatOldMan Thanks. I was just curious.
Judging from another one of the videos, it's: Radeon HD6950 w/ Unlocked Shaders OC'd to 6970 speeds AMD Phenom II 925 x4 2.8GHz OC'd to 3.5GHz 4GB DDR3 RAM Windows 7 64-bit
hey quick question, if i build a gaming PC, am i able to use a ps3 controller with the games similar to how a 360 controller can be used?
Cool, my GTX 580 should slay it, then. @jwk94: Yes. There is a special driver/program called motionjoy which allows the use of PS3 contollers on Windows PCs.
Alright, thanks LightofDarkness!
I'm getting between 35 and 50 fps most of the time (if there are a ton of explosions or everything is shaking it might drop below 30 briefly) on Extreme in 1080p with an OCed GTX 460 1 GB, so there shouldn't be any problem getting a terrific frame rate with higher end cards. On Very High it's generally hovering around 60s or 70s for me. The optimization blows the original Crysis away. Crysis 1 looked incredible for its time, especially with mods, but my gawd was it a resource hog if you cranked everything. I can't wait until later this year when I upgrade so I can play Crysis 2 and other games at a silky smooth framerate. It looks very nice, although I want some sort of setting added that allows me to kill some of this damn bloom. It's really excessive in some places. I'm hoping DX11 doesn't kill my current PC. I'm holding off upgrading until I hear more about the plans of AMD and Intel regarding their CPUs.
Now show us the PS3 version
dude just go to youtube and find it!
Just imagine what the first Crysis would look like running on the new CryEngine 3 :D And I don't mean by mods, I mean.. developed by Crytek, re-mastered.
Is it possible for the community to do that though? If so I'd turn into a jizz machine. Just sayin
I think is very hard, almost impossible.
"using an Xbox 360 controller" why? you are on a PC, so use the ~best thing about PC gaming... the mouse
The controls on PC are a pain now because of consolization.
Just turn off mouse smoothing. It all goes away.
What LightofDarkness said. But if your frame rate isn't above 50ish then it still feels like broken mouse movement (even though Crysis 1 had no mouse lag with 20 odd fps)
I can't wait for graphics mods!!
Yeah, my GTX 580 is hungry. FEED IT.
I just got this game on the 360 and was surprised at the final build. It looks great. I can only imagine what it would look like in person on a nicely built rig. I don't have the PC brains for everything but I sure wish I did when games like this are coming out!
building & maintaing a pc can be very easy!
dear every other video game ever made, your graphics have just been OWNED!!!! thanks, Crysis 2 on PC p.s. metro2033 on pc, you are almost as kool as me
Doesn't look that much better than the console versions to be honest. Yes, I watched the vid in 1080p, too. Some textures like the brick/stones walls at the beginning look unbelievably flat for a 2011 game! O_o' Still a very good looking game, yes, but nowhere near as jaw-dropping as Crysis 1 was in its day. Especially if you take into account that the free-roaming elements are now gone and the game is now as linear as the killzone games, which must push like, a billion more things on the screen...
That looked beautiful.It looks better than Crysis (without the mods) :) Imagine how it would look when they release the DX11 patch :)
The rig me and my bro have been building for so long is nearly complete, it ways in at around £1400 and it's one hell of a beast. I seriously can't wait to play this with mods as well.
Meh. It doesn't look as great as you all think I Promise. It's dull and completely dead, it doesn't feel alive at all. It plays like a console game and it's frustrating. It has it's moments but bloom and blur suck ass. Vehicles look awful, glass won't shatter (no physx) explosions are cool though, tons of low res textures, Plants oh man they look like crap, trees cannot be shot apart instead they take bullet holes that look stupid and sometimes they are floating in mid air. I hate to be a downer and sound so negative but it's true. It's hard to see from a difference but up close while Playing you see it. I dunno whatever I guess, I'm disappointed. There is also something wrong with this game I cannot score over 60 fps. Not in low, medium or high settings no matter the resolution. I Put it on low and 720p I get 60. Medium and 720p and get 60, high and 1080p and 3D and get 60, it's infuriating. Lol
yeah, on your ps3 it looks terrible, just like killzone 3
Ya ps3 looks terrible You're right. My pc's better than yours, you're just blind. I love how you're all saying "oh yes it looks as good as crysis!!" yet don't realize that game is over 4 years old and wonder why true pc gamers are disappointed. This game could look 10 times better and should.
