Wiki has some quotes about Crysis 2. Devs say it will "compete with crysis 1 for the best graphics on the PC" and be the best looking game on the console.

I'd be more than happy if the game is bug free and looks identical :D

well honestly, looking at the short draw distance, it seems like CryEngine 3 is trying to fake CryEngine 2 so the game gets a lot of hype for having really good graphics, which it does, for a console game. it'll be interesting to see the frame rate on everyone's xboxs/ps3's because they don't seem to optimize code very well :D

CryEngine 3 looks horrible from what i saw...hopefully it wont be that bad on the PC, as i'm used to maxed out settings on everything.

crysis was never meant to be a console game imo

@Thefox14, totally correct, it wasn't supposed to be a console game at all. I'm sure it wouldn't have been hard to port it to the xbox 360 but they didn't because in my opinion, the point of crysis was to make it so hard to run, people competed to get better fps, causing it to become popular.

you're right they didn't say that. My point was it got very famous because of the challenge of maxing it out. I realize that it's still very good looking at medium and fun, i've played the demo (was too cheap to go out and get something that i can't run too good )

right and it had started to annoy me how with every review, it's more likely that you'll find a Crysis benchmark then something that tests raw power better, such as 3dmark
