    Crysis is just meh for me. But the graphics are incredible & the fact that you can mod them to make it look even better is icing on the cake.
    The only thing is that we had to wait about 6 months for a gfx card that could let you see all that beauty :rolleyes:

    You play as Psycho on the other side of the island, during the events of Nomad in the first game.

    yay, a decent (hopefully, based on first crysis) FPS game, with someone british as the main character! :D

    i would pre-order it but I've only just got first crysis. :eek:

    Will see how far I get, but for only £14.99 I might just get it anyway! :D

    Anyone know if it working on lesser systems is due to graphics downgrade or just better optimization this time?

    They are optimizing it very well from what I've read. I think they said a 9600GT can max it or something like that!

    Hope thats true, Crysis is a jaw dropping game, both visually and gameplay, am running Jrobs Config, looks stunning! Though i dont know how they managed to make 25-30 FPS feel silky smooth, no other game is like that.

    but games like CoJ and BioShock were also (maybe not quite as Crysis) nice looking DX10 games but didnt need the hardware thats coming on the shelves now to run it properly.

    Same here. I killed nearly every single korean in jungle areas stealthily. The others would hear them get whacked, come to investigate, then I'd whack them from behind. For some reason, it's more satisfying to kill asians in video games. Must be from all of the vietnam/WWII movies and games.

    So true, stealth ftw! Nothing like being quiet and seeing a guy take a wizz, then you roll some logs down at him, he's all like "Waaaaaaaa!?"

    I made the goofball jump in the drink when I did that - then I shot him right as he pulled that fare gun out, but the shot didn't seem fatal. He probably drowned in the drink since he fell down face first :nutkick:

    I really enjoy killing the Koreans with trees and boxes and oil drums. It's hilarious to see them hide behind a tree, only for me to chop it down on top of their heads. Sometimes the game lets you pick up the big chopped down trees too, then I like to become surrounded by Koreans and do my neo impression...:D

    Just look at it, poetry...

    OMFG!!!!! WARHEAD!!!!!!!!! im gonna die if this doesn't come out in australia @ the same time as Europe!!!!! i cant wait :)
    and yeah stealth is where most of the replay value is! i like it when you just sneak past the enemies and only kill the ones you absolutely must, i think its just as fun as going in like the terminator.

    If they would've released the first one at this price point, they wouldn't have been bitching about the low sales figures. $50-60 is just inexcusable for a PC game if you ask me.

    I got crysis special edition for £15.95 a week ago :D

    And I've just ordered Warhead for £14.99 :D

    Couldnt see the point in getting Crysis till I had the hardware to run it.

    Agree though, games should def be cheaper at launch (like warhead)

    yup games should defiantly be cheaper!

    Wow you havent got very far at all! lol. It gets a LOT better after that. I've only just finished first level but its amazing! You havent even experienced vehicles yet! :D

    I play on normal. I know thats kinda easy compared to other games, but I'm more of a halo FPS than a splinter cell/MGS kinda guy. So I like to be able to go in all guns blazing and I was dying too many times on Hard. Maybe once I have played the game through once, if Warhead hasnt arrived on my door step, I'll try stealth on delta.
