CFD!'s Sage Knox weighs in on Crytek's sequel:
"In order to ward off any knee-jerk reactions attempting to vilify Crysis 2 in the same unfair way that its predecessor was , I’ll preface any further words by simply saying the following: a 3-4 year old gaming PC will (mostly likely) run this game.
"How it’s possible is beyond my feeble brain’s understanding. The only explanation that seems likely is that Crytek, with its army of magicians and voodoo practitioners, has optimized the shit out of the game to such an extent that my two year-old mid-range PC can run it on maximum settings. No, it’s not because it looks worse than the original Crysis. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. From a purely technical standpoint, it’s a freak in the bed"
