    buy a legit copy :laugh:

    seriousley if it is legit, update it to the latest version, update graphics drivers (or if you have the latest maybe try an older/more stable one) make sure windows updates are up tio date etc, aside from that im not too sure why it would crash everythime at a specific point that sux ass big time, especially since youve got so far in the game :banghead:

    im stumped mate, i would probably try some new ati drivers/run in safe mode (if available in crysis), lower quality etc see if any of that helps.

    could just be a duff install and at worst you may have to uninstall crysis and start again, although you could always keep your save games and replace them after a reinstall

    Maybe try running in compatibility mode for Xp SP2? Or maybe try running DX9 mode?

    I had a similar problem on Crysis as well, I changed the drivers and it is fine. What drivers are you on?

    It might be a good thing it crashes before the rather moronic ending.
    No but really, if it crashes only in a certain level you're probably looking at corrupt game files. Reinstall the game.

    It didn't really end as much as it just kinda stopped, ties for lamest cliffhanger ever after the Legacy of Kain series.
