    Pre-ordered it yesterday. Physical disc. I was at first on the preorder for Limited version but the shop said they aren't expecting it (if at all). Besides, the exclusive one doesn't seem like a bargain anyway. It would be awesome if those dog tags were the actual metal thingie inside the box, not some stupid platinum digital dog tag. And the box itself to be black metallic with that typical Crysis mesh texture all over it.

    I liked the Red Alert 3 Premier Edition which arrived in a metallic box with posters, music CD and so on. Similar for Dead Space 2. Plasma Cutter, extra audio CD etc. Or the NFS Hot Pursuit Limited Edition. It was nothing special by itself, just few extra cars, but it was priced the same as the normal version...

    Anyway, i haven't played the demo but since i loved original Crysis i just bought it right away. I need some urban alien combat anyway...

    Thanks for sharing the little install link. I didnt see a link in steam this morning. Tried that and its downloading.

    Errr maybe not. It went through the install like any other steam game. But i dont see a % next to the title.

    Did you? In my opinion the leak (Crysis 2) has the best sound ever on any PC game, I've played many games on my current rig but Crysis 2 is one of those that stands up. Wouldn't be ironic that people had to upgrade their sound card instead of their video card to enjoy Crysis 2? :laugh:

    Yeah whatever they are using to do the sound in that game is amazing.

    However, if I remember correctly the acoustics albeit good didn't seem to fit the environment.

    lol I think it depends on the person, some can really notice the difference and some don't at all. It is less comparable to a moving image since it is a lesser focus in the game compared to the visuals.

    I'll be sad to play it on onboard sound :( but not for too long since I am investing on a PCI sound card because of my motherboard's layout.

    Maximum Console. This game is sad. BF3 is the PC gaming community's new poster child.

    I do know that there isn't a DX11 patch and there's no word on when or if it will even be released.

    Man, I've been playing the PS3 version since a couple of days ago. This game is the shittiest game I've played since a long time. The main problem is that it's called Crysis 2.....it should have been an expansion not the succeccor of a great game such as Crysis 1 and Warhead :(

    I mean what were they thinking when they made this game ? :banghead:

    almost 80% of story elements are stolen from different sources, I mean in a cut scene you see these octupous-like things from the matrix along with little bugs which are obviously based on the The Matrix world. Oh and the MP.......god...what can I say....it's a pure ideas-theft, it's simple a poor version of CoD with different skin and storyline.

    oh did I mention that the whole environment is non-destructible ? and ohh god....it's soooooooo liner !!!

    I would have bought it if they had a Power Struggle mode.

    What's bothering me is that they did all of this because they thought that it would apeal more to the consoles crowed....sadly it seems like it's going to sell very good there because to be honest most of the console players (including my lil brother) are sheeps, they simply buy anything regarding of the quality, all they need is a nicely done advertisement campaign.

    Shame on you Crytek...shame on you......In the end, I just hope that this game fails in terms of sale, that would teach Crytek a lesson not to try to be sneaky and act like "smartasses"

    Bottom line is, if you are truly a hardcore Crysis 1 player.......don't buy this sh!t, wait until it's get very very cheap.

    Seriously.....Gamespot reviewers must be too casual or blind..most people gave it 10/10...what's wrong with the world these days ? they "dump down" a great game into a very very very average game and it gets 10 ? Seriously ? This must be the end of world, it seems like no cares about quality these days....too many sheep's :(

    Oh by the way, why the heck does this game cost $60 again ? I mean the PC version........

    I wonder if the Crysis 2 advertisements plastered all over their site has anything to do with it? :laugh:
