The game may look great on a super PC, but for those who have DX9 gaming PCs might be disappointed with the graphics... take a look.
Definately looks good
people will pick this game apart.. Just wait. It's happening already.
It still looks alright but it's not much compared to the screenshots we've seen of Crysis on high.
This thread is quite stupid, and reason the is that there is not much difference between the dx9 and dx10 versions. The basic difference is that in dx9 you can play up to High level and in Dx10 up to Very High level, but the difference is not very noticeable. The truth is, what matters is the power of the pc, not if it is in dx9 or dx10. and sorry, but the game is not worth the cost in hardware...
Contributors should be a bit more carefull about citing posts from forums...
I'll take slightly worse graphics over being forced into vista anyday.
I have a 7600GT and an AMD 3500+.
I can run the demo on medium settings at 1152x864 resolution and pull ~30 fps which is most definitely playable. And it looks gorgeous, these screenies don't do it justice at all.
According to what Ive read in the forums the demo seems to be dividing people in two groups the
"My xxxx dollar high end PC runs it at 5-10fps, the game is a piece of CENSORED"
"My PC runz teh game INCREDIBLEZ. ZOMG teh coolestz"
and aparently is has NOTHING to do with with it being high end or middle end since people with 8600GT seem to be running it great and some people with 8800 Ultra run it like crap
which only points that either the demo is a F-ING mess or future drivers will fix that
Knowing Crytek and NVIDIA they will sort things out
I have the new beta drivers I am just waiting of the demo to finish downloading :D
by the way a little tip for the people that might care there is a way to get the DX10 exclusive special effects (or at least some) running in DX9 go to GameSpot Crysis forums and look for the thread...but remember it requires editing of configuration files
1650 x 1080 with all max settings and 16XQ AA, IT LOOKS GORGEOUS.
screw vista and DX10
gaming on PC makes me laugh....its like saying look how fast I can drive and shelling out on a Bugatti Veyron. Every 6 month / year you need to spend hundreds / thousands to be able to catch up. What a fantastic waste of resources.
It certainly propelled the PC to the market share that it has now (M$ must be happy) but Consoles are definitely on a saner model with Developers improving their skills on the same hardware. Finite resources = tailor made / optimized results. I suppose thats what makes apple what they are and what used to be assembler under DOS when really there was not many resources available.
Now just grab a bazooka to kill a fly.
Its every 6 months a new video card iteration comes out.
Now if you buy crappy video cards from the beginning then yes you have to upgrade more often. Problem is those ppl who buy crappy video cards tend not to game t hat much on the PC.
the point being that playing games on a PC is nothing short of a luxury.
I have PCs, Very Big ones at that, I only use them for heavy computing.
it is laughable to require the same kind of configuration for a game.
But thats the way the trend has been going for 20 years or so.
Thats why in general goods are not require to last anymore. Buy a new TV or Fridge or car and you will see how it compares to those 30 years ago that probably still work.
Buy Buy Buy....now Im ranting but what a crap society we have become.
I have to put everything on medium mode to run pretty smooth at 1280x 720
that's pretty bad, I only have one 8800GTX and can run it @ 1650X1080 a max settings. ATI fell off bigtime.
Intel Quad Core @3.2GHZ
EVGA 8800GTX with 768 MB ram
Asus Striker Extreme Motherboard
4GB PC6400 DDR Ram
2 250GB HDD in Raid 0 config
I think the quad core makes the biggest difference. The amazing thing is that if I max out the res at 1920X1200 it slows to a crawl, WITH 4GB of RAM!!!! this game is a HOG of all HOGS.
Not than impressed. (with these screenshots)
lol not a chance a ps3 or 360 can do all of these post processing effects
PS3 and 360 can run better graphics that those screenshots.
however the 360 would choke on the framerate due to its bottlenecked architecture and tiny EDRAm chip.
yea I ran it on high with dx 10 and 1680x1050 and the game is amazing looking.......360 and ps3 deff couldnt run this and if they can it would take another few years and alot of tweaking to look this good its amazing how pretty a game can be lol.....
Im gonna start tryn to put the AA up and the graphics to very high soon and see how it looks.
But yea dont fool yourself if you see the game in motion the consoles havnt had anything like this or close to this yet
in motion. Its so much better then.
Im running everything on High +2x aa and get 37 avg fps.
Some things ingame really blows you away. The explosions for instance. So damn beutiful. And no other game has motion blur and dof that feels so damn right.
I see this as a transition game. The game that take all these new "effects" that we have seen scattered on several titles, sometimes good, sometimes awful and overused, and put it all into one engine and make them feel like its all part of the world instead of FX.
I think its a gateway game, well see some truly awesome graphics after this, since Crytek got alot "right", the other developers will be ready to take the next step.
I have uploaded some screens since the ones in the link sucked:
http://www.roughcall.se/cry... http://www.roughcall.se/cry... http://www.roughcall.se/cry...
The motionblur on screen 3 is really awesome. Havent seen any game getting it this good. Well TF 2 got it right but the graphics there are so different its hard to tell the quality of the MB.
The cutscenes where you see your partners are quite awesome. Will grab som screens of the later.
This is DX9. DX10 adds quite alot in this game.
8800gtx @ stock
Nice shots. Did u o/c your 2.4 E6600? Cuz at stock speed with my 7950GX2 (1GB Sli) card BF2142 gives me around 30-50 fps at highest settings. But at 3.3Ghz its 90+. Since my water pump broke cudn't try Crysis Beta although i've d/l it. Just waiting for the mofo company to find me a replacement pump otherwise hv to shell out money again for new kit.
It looks great in DX10 on my comp and i haev a lower end AMD Dual Core..
You should upgrade that CPU. It's the bottleneck of your system.
My system runs just fine :) just played crysis on high
killzone owns this on dx20, too bad
Aizen, you make some of the most ignorant comments i've heard, dont get me wrong, killzone 2 looks AMAZING and has mind blowing visuals like nothing on consoles, close to CGI graphics, BUT take a closer look at killzone's visuals, very very crappy low res textures and draw distance, plus the game has a dark look so lighting isnt that much big of a deal, so the ps3 can squeeze out all of its cell juice on beautiful post processing eye candy and i agree it does look good but analyzing graphics on a whole, not from a one sided perspective, crysis is definitely far more superior and would have trouble running on the ps3 due to memory limitations
I have almost the same setup as that guy (7950GX2, Core 2 Extreme @ 3.2 GHz, 2 GB RAM). I hope it doesn't suck as badly for me.
I'll never be able to play the game with my ATI 128MB X300 graphics card and 512MB RAM... LOL.
i got the same cpu a 8800ultra and 2 gigs of corsair at 1033mhz with a 10k hdd..........it plays great on xp. im looking forward to cod4 though. im not too keen on crysis anymore.....ill still buy it though as a showcase. its basically farcry 2.0 at ULTRA HIGH SETTINGS.
question: anyone know if this supports ageia ppu?
THESE PICS are on medium setting! I'm able to play the game at high setting without ANY frame rate drops. It looks pretty sweet on HIGH settings.
Here's my main component specs:
MOTHERBOARD: EVGA 680i SLI
CPU: C2D E6600
RAM: 2GB A-DATA DDR2-800
VIDEOCARD: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB
Check out MY SCREENSHOT
2x8800ultra 768mb (each)
intelcore 2 extreme QX6850
4GB Dual CHannel DDR2 [email protected]
I should be able to run this game on the highest settings, with no problems at all.
I have no doubt about it bro
i was gonna pop in another ultra(i680) but the 3-4 percent increase did not warrant the 900 dollar card way back when it was first released....too bad it still doesnt offer any real performance boost over 1 ultra card.
None theless i was gonna pop one in last week ( ive had this setup for over 6 months i think)for the hell of it until i heard the 9800 are soon to be released. The 9800 is supposed to offer 5-8 times the performance of 1 ultra/2-4x performance of ultras in sli.
HA i already play oblivion with everything maxed on a bravia.....but im still gonna get the 9800 though ill wait for the gtx/ultra model which should kick major freaking ass.
I have QX6700 @ 2.93 ghx and 2X 8800 gtx and 2 gb ram, vista. I can run at 1920X1200 no AA with everything on high in dx9 getting about 40-45 fps. play it on dx10 very high settings framerate drops to about 10-15 fps at that rez. I have to drop rez down to 1024X768 just to get 30-35 fps! it's not worth it.
I'd rather play at 1920X1200 on high. not much difference between high and very high. only thing I notice is you see the "god rays" coming thru the clouds and trees.
Graphics are AWESOME, but the gameplay seems like Super Farcry and I'm not sure that's enough to warrant a purchase from me. I like the suit but I'd rather hit a key to switch powers instead of the "MMB circle of me getting shot" thingy. Please correct me if there's a quicker way, as I saw in the options to hit 4 but that barely worked. If the story takes off then I'll most certainly get it because as I stated it played like Super Farcry, you get more options on how to approach things.
Those other games look great and all, BUT I THINK I JUST WITNESSED A GOD-LIKE GAME!!!!!!!!!! =D
This is the first time I've seen such an unbelievable game exclusive to one console in more than 5 years. This game is SO AMAZING, it makes me want to buy another 360 from JAPAN & play only THIS GAME ON BOTH CONSOLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is now the sixth time I have watched this trailer, and oh man, I want to buy a 360 to play this game NOW!!!!!!
This game reminds me of an epic film, filled with everything. My friend Karai in Japan is buying a 360 just to play this game.
http://www.gametrailers.com... Its like Star Ocean but even more unbelievable, proving that games are far from dead. They are about to get a full revival thanks to this game.
I predict this game sells over 2 million copies worldwide, and I'm not kidding, because I also predict a whole lot of people who never seen a 360 before are going to get one because of this game.
Move over Final Fantasy, there's somebody else taking over!!!!!!
=(D INFINITE UNDISCOVERY= MASTERPIECE
sorry to rain on your parade but those ingamegraphics look like dreamcast graphics.
my pentium 2, 32mb ddr ram, 2mb grafix card can run this sh!t
I downloaded the demo and tryed it on both xp and vista,my setup is a e4300 core2duo overclocked to 3.gz,a geforce 8800 gts 320mb,3gig of ddr2 ram 800mhz,Fristly i tryed xp on high setting the res was set to 1400x900,looks amazing stunning to tell you the truth and was nice and smooth,i tryed 1680x1050 but at that res is was a bitt choppy so i swicthed back to 1400x900 and am happy with that.Next i tryed vista,installed the game with the same settins as xp setup and the game ran like a snail,unplayable i tryed lowering the res to 1024x786 and set to very high just to see the directx 10 efffects and to tell you the truth there wasnt much of a difference to dx9,sure there were more effects like sunrays throught the water and slightly better water effects but that was about it as far as i could see,but because it ran so slow on vista i didnt try and play more just to pick out the slight differnces between dx10 and dx9.The game ran amazing on xp and looks stunning so am sticking with my xp setup,at the end of the day vista is to demanding and just isnt worth the effort,unless you have a uber pc setup which most people dont,just bring dx10 to xp microsoft,we know you could do it if you wanted to.Just stick with xp people thats the true gaming operating system.....
Visually, it doesn't look so sharp under these settings.
so this game will look good or like sh!t depending on what kind of limitations your hardware has. Those who have the green and want to see this game with all the bells and whistles on know what to do. Some will have to tweak, clock or just downright do magic in order to get their rigs to play it.
interesting that everyones is running like crap cuz all i got is a intel c2d e6600 stock and 2 gigs of ocz 800mhz platinum ram..and a 640 mb 8800 gts and i can run on high at 1680x1050 res with everything stock.........my cousin has the same type of set up but with the 320 mb 8800 and can only run on normal interesting.......maybe my Asus striker extreme mobo helps??? blah who knows lol....i did notice when i loaded a saved game once the game became lkie super lagged like 10 fps but then i jus went and redid the settings outside of the game updated a few drivers and my started a new game and the game ran flawless
Anyone notice the mountain textures? They seem pretty bad. :(
I played this yesteday on medium settings at 1024 by 720 or whatever and it ran smooth. I tryed it on all high settings without AA and the framerate took a hit when I tryed fighting enemies. This game does look awesome and yes its better looking than Killzone 2, sorry Alien but stop being a fanboy and get out of here.
Come on people!!! I've played games on my PS3 that look better than this! I'm sure that the guy didn't used a high-end pc!!
I ordered a new PC just because of this game and that will be high end!
Intel Core Duo 2 E6750 2x 2.66Ghz, GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB, 4Gig DDR2 800 RAM.....now that will be a high end PC!!
Can't wait to see Crysis maxed out on it!
LOL at the one disagreeing !:D
Open GL lovers hate this game because when it's shown in DX10, it shows them what they can't do in realtime proven gamplay and not a CGI image of why they dream of. Open GL boast a good game and shows some shiny CGI images but they don't have anything running in realtime 60fps and that actualy works. Open GL is a dream with nothing on the table that adds proof, sorry fellas I want to play not dream.
http://webpages.charter.net... http://forums.guru3d.com/sh... http://ve3d.ign.com/article... Bioshock using DX10
crytek is already considering making the 360/ps3 versions....depending on how well the pc version does.
sigh I wish my computer was good enough to handle this, or I had $1000 to make it able to run it.
Does the game have a good enough story? :P
It doesn't look like anything a 360 or PS3 can't do right now. No doubt computers will pass them up, but I'll take my 360 any day. I will always be a console gamer. I can wait a few years to upgrade to my next console in one shot, and not every few months to stay ahead of the curve.
CONFIRMED running it at ultra max on DX10 will eat your soul...along with the majority of your fps >.>
NVIDIA better release some final drivers for the game and I hope Crytek optimizes the game for the retail version
cuz if not we are gonna have a LOT of angry people specially the ones that have the 8800 Ultra and even they cant run it with a stable frames on DX10
Yeh they do need to optimize the game some more which I'm sure they will do. Play Crysis on high settings with AA and you will see that it kicks some ass.
8800 GTX 768mb
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
Ram 4GB Kit DDR2 800 5-5-5
I should be able to run this game on the highest settings, right???
