Yeah Bloom is wayy overdone, so is HDR is some places.. The shadows are too jagged despite high AA. And to those who have fallen to performance numbers. Let me remind you, CRYSIS at DX10 MAX 1920x1080 played 32fps on the HD5850... Thats quite good. Now the HD6850(which laggs 1 fps behind HD5850 in crysis 2) scores 36fps in CRYSIS 2 at DX9 MAX 1920x1080. Why I think it's not an ACHIEVEMENT but rather a BUMMER: If you remember, CRYSIS had thousands of trees, lots of foliage, vegetation and that beautiful sea too to render, and yet these frames. CRYSIS 2, if I am correct(ofcourse I am) has none of that, the levels are MUCH smaller, COMPACT spaces, the vistas are HARDLY THAT BIG or NEAR COMPLEX as CRYSIS. So overall, for those trumpeting that CRYSIS 2 is quite optimised, nope.. thats another of the big BS Crytek has thrown at PC. Ultimately, thet made a joke out of PC, and hopefully BF3 will teach EVERYONE a bloody lesson.
