well this post is probabily goins to set the record for most number of neg marks but still. it was meh for me... Dont know why but nothing interesting. probably will have to play to see wether interesting or not but cg seems to be same ......
[citation][nom]dgre005[/nom]There's some footage of the 3D presentation too...Playstationlifestyle.net What exactly will you need for 3D on the PC? 3D glasses? A 3D monitor?[/citation]
There have been a few articles here about 3D PC setups. Regretfully, the industry seems to be shifting towards shutter-glasses, which is usually a new monitor (unless yours has a 120Hz refresh rate) plus new glasses. Me, I use 2 projectors and polarized glasses. Crysis was amazing in 3D, and it'll be nice to do it all again with Crysis 2.

I'd have to agree, in some ways. As a game, it looks like it could be interesting. Fast paced, interesting storyline, fairly good visuals. Absolutely jaw dropping visuals and gameplay? Eh, not really. They haven't wow'd me (no reference to some Blizzard game, I swear) yet.
If you purchase a dual GTX 470 to run this game, you have too much money to know what to do with, and i hope you end up on 'till debt do us part'.
All this game will need to run at very high quality, smooth, is a card that by the end of the year wont cost more than $250 - the radeon 5850. Thats ALL you will need, maybe even less.
There is not enough justification for the average gamer to have a $1400 video card setup in their pc today. Games dont need it, in general its a waste of money and I point this out because making poor buying decisions like this only drives up the market prices on everyone else.
To give you an idea of how much extra you are spending, my 8800GTOC (with, gasp, only 512MB!) runs CODMW2 perfectly smooth on high quality, with help from a $110 amd quad-core cpu. That video card is about 3 years old now and the equivilent (9800GT) is around $90 to purchase today.
To summarize, you can get great value for your buck today if you actually try. Hardware is well ahead of what any efficiently-coded game actually needs to run well. So please, be a smart consumer, check things out first, dont assume you will Need to spend an arm and a leg for games like this.
Those are some pretty kick ass graphics for an X-Box game. I'm REALLY excited for the PC version now.
Also @Kasdfewf: There ARE some games at higher resolutions which require a lot more, you neither specified what graphics settings you had it at or what resolution, not only that but you used a console port which most people can play on the PC with no issues. Maybe you should think before you purchase. I have a Dual-core and a GTX260, 4 gigs of RAM, I can play the original Crysis at 1680x1050 with most settings on "high" not "max", "high". My monitor wants me to play my games at 1920x1080.
So think about what you've said. I will not give you thumbs down as the first half of your paragraph made some sense.
[citation][nom]Smochina[/nom]I will never understand why people are so exited about this, they put graphics well before gameplay, in fact, there's no gameplay, nothing new to do and experience, just a shallow game in a fancy skin.[/citation]
Which would you have? A young hot 20 year old or the successful 40 year old who looks just okay.
People play crysis for the looks and maybe this time it might have a good storyline.
I was particularly unimpressed by the fight with the big two-legged robot. It was as if it took no damage at all (no parts breaking free from the body, impaired operation such as limping or degraded posture, sparks or glares...) and then in all of a sudden it dropped dead with some artificial flames surrounding it.
Meh. They should have debuted PC footage, and released it in 1080p trailers, to give us an idea of how good it would look and play on a nice PC. This looks decent but nothing worth writing home about, at least not yet. MW2 at this point still looks like the best FPS.

That sounds like an awesome setup Unfortunately that's goes a bit beyond my budget...
