And the one thing that sucks in Crysis apart from the lame story and bugs in multiplayer is PHYSICS.
What was bad about Crysis's physics?...I found them very impressive, better than any shit Ageia-based game.
They are pretty buggy at times but otherwise they are really good. Its just when alot of pressure is put on something it usually flies to the other side of the map
Youtube for crysis physics. People play with it alot and it looks neato!
they're a bit buggy at times but the physics in crysis r rly good IMO
They seem to be really good, but a tad overly floppy. I don't know how many corpses I have seen flop around a bit too much after death. Impressive that they do them themselves though with everyone else jumping on the Havok train.
Sure, barrels 'n' boxes can be tossed around. That's about what covers "physics" in Crysis. Everything else is just sad...
crysis (and many other games) have a very LINEAR physics. As an example a force that should shatter a metal barrel throws it across the map with deadly force instead. to have true physics, you cant have items that are immune to it! tents need to get holes in em, vehicles flip, etc.
oh yeah sure they could be better but i thing there good considering what else is around these days, cod4, assassins creed, rainbowsix vegas ect.
Crytek does a good job of "live", "on CPU" physics. It's a step forward. Let's see Far Cry 2 before we pass final judgement on Crytek physics.
I'm sure they would have liked to do more. But remember, when they designed their engine, GPU physics was not an option, and PPU physics was a very limited Ageia market. So they did good based on the contraints they faced.
I'm sure that now we are ALL on quad cores ;-) (or will be in the next year with Dual core plus HT), then they can advance their physics engine one step further, without having to employ GPU licensed (and limited) routines.
crysis did have some really bad physics in my opinion, one time I jumped into the water and the guy died and went to the bottom in under a second
LOL, the physics in Crysis is fucked up. When you pick up a frog and throw it towards the sky, it just keeps going and doesn't land. It's like you're on the moon or something, WTF?
also, before a bug fix, you could throw a chicken at a barrel and it would explode
The chicken or the barrel?
haha the barrel
as i explained it to a friend, physics doesnt work if some items ignore it (such as walls with infinite strength/no physics capabilities) - someone throws a chair at a window, the force gets transferred even if the window doesnt break and the chair falls back down. it doesnt go ZOOOOOOOOOM off into the sunset like a freaking UFO.
