You were one of those who complained that Crysis 2 was "nerf" to run on consoles? Complained that the textures were blurry? I thought Crysis was an infinitely superior? Think again!
nope not even close
Even though you are a no good, fanboy, retard, troll I do have to agree with you --- this time -_- Crysis 2 DX11 was just an afterthought tacked on, not biult for DX11 from the ground up the way we expected it should be. The multiplayer while having more people playing it didnt hold a candle to Crysis and Crysis wars multiplayer either. Sad game that disappointed PC gamers and buzzed console kids.
Personally, I think Witcher 2 looks better and that is DX 9.
Those shots at the bottom of the page were really good especially the bricks, I can see the day when we play games in the future and look back at these older games and laugh because things like the walls were flat and not moulded.
Nope not even close. But it does look great for a DX9 game with DX11 stapled on. I got a GTAIV mod that looks this good minus the tessellation. Crysis 1 Reality mod looks better. BF3 is gonna kill it.
What mod are you using for GTA IV? Does it improve the performance in the game? What about the Reality mod? Does that Improve Crysis performance? You're an ATI guy? Same here :) On topic: I agree this game doesn't beat the original Crysis. There is even a vid on youtube that compares coding, environmental effects, and appearance of CE2 and CE3. With the way BF3 is looking its probably gonna beat EVERYTHING.
The reality mod for Crysis adds a lot more Textures so you will still need a beefy PC to run it. I got like a bunch of GTA mods running and one of the mods helps with performance while cause the texture mods really put a strain on resources. sorry i don't know the names of the GTA mods but just google it....or go to www.MODDB.com
moddb.com for sure.
Not really, looks exactly the same as Direct X 10, but with some optimized shaders.
LOL typical hardcore PC gamers, so hard to please. It takes a special brand elitism that say that Crysis 2 with all trimmings isn't good enough.
It takes a special kind of ignorance to see why it so isn't good enough. -Shorter and less open campaign. -Smaller and less open multiplayer - no vehicles at all -Worse graphics than its 2007 predecessor and DX9 based game with 3 or 4 small DX11 enhancements modded in 6 months after release is not the same as a ground up DX11 experience -Practically "Call of Crysis" all over it. You might call us "Elitists" but I just say that us PC gamers get used to games getting better over the course of 4 years not going backwards and that's what we got with Crysis 2.
You should be used to it by now? Crysis 2 is a muliplat game. I knew that coming in and lowered my expectations from day 1. In fact there's a game called Crysis Warhead that should've clued you in on whats to come. Crysis 2 is nothing more than a continuation of that design choice married with a bunch of baseless hype. Sounds to me like you bought into the hype. Not like anyone is forcing you to use Crytek's textures anyways, just download community's high res textures if the vanilla isn't worthy enough for you. Regardless this version of Crysis 2 still looks and play five times better than the console version, which is good enough for me.
Sad to see these people....the fact that u guys know something about the least complexity of FX in game engines, like texturing/shaders still doesn't make u at the least entitled to give these narrow minded wisecrack statements. Till now nobody has been able to mention the accomplishments of Crytek in what they've pulled off here..stating the superficial shortcomings is easy (now imagine you and ur fellow negativeness building Cryengine from code and the whole game Crysis before Crysis existed and i hope u will see the light) the game has it's shortcomings but go deeper into the build and it is apparent that there is some amazing optimisation tech and Campaign parts in there...now compare Crysis 2 to indie games and it becomes apparent that u guys are way overstating simply mindedness here...making games is hard, really try to building ur own game with ur own build engine/tools and see if that does some healing to ur mental states if u can come up with a game like Crysis, instead of just using prefab editors/modifying some elements and claim u know it all....btw i bet that actual modders aren't so narrow minded and disrespectful...
The problem with Crysis 2 was never the graphics, but the corridor levels and the lack of physics.
