I'm pretty sure Crysis 2 will have some of the best graphics out there, especially on PC. But what I'm still more interested on aside from good graphics is the gameplay and the "fun" factor.
I'd like to get my hands on it. Hoping there will be a demo.

I'm actually more interested in the CryEngine 3 sandbox editor more than anything (kind of sad, I know) but so few games these days actually have quality dev software bundled with them. Source, Unreal 3 and CryEngine are big players in the custom content world.

The CryEngine 2 editor is like a super advanced version of Garry's Mod (HL2 sandbox mod) and has provided hundreds of hours of entertainment.

Yeah, CryEngine 2 was pretty intense. I started to learn some things and just decided I wasn't going to learn yet another engine to get what I wanted. Good stuff though, can't wait to see what modders are going to come up with on the new engine.

WOW. Those additional effects look incredible. What a fantastic mod!

This is why PC gaming will always rule the roost. Console players have no idea what they're missing, that's the sad part. Even sadder, they don't care.

Crysis 2 looks good on consoles, but it looks downright phenomenal on the PC. Nothing else will even come close.

I think it's funny that people are still saying that Unreal 3 can look this good. U3 on its best day looks marginally as good as CryEngine 3 on the consoles.

The technology CryEngine 3 is dishing out is propelling technology forward in ways we could have only dreamed of five years ago.
