Do want.

My vid-card can't run it though.

"Just got my latest December issue of PCGamer and they have the world's first Crysis review. It got a 98%, which is pretty damn good for PCGamer standards. They also mentioned the single player takes around 12 hours to complete.

Highs: A graphical powerhouse, immersive, open-ended sandbox that encourages emergent gameplay, well-placed storyline, meticulously detailed; engrossing multiplayer, included map editor.

Lows: Alien AI not as spectacular as North Korean AI; enemies can sometimes absorb too much damage; a few minor glitches.

Bottom Line: Destined to be a classic, Crysis is a creative and technological marvel that eclipses every other shooter released this year."

Holy shit. Isn't that a bit tenuous as evidence goes, though?

Oh well, I can't run it anyway, I have a Mac.

HMMMMMM......


you know, I've been half-dismissing it as a nice benchmark testing program. I should pay more attention next time I play.

Or maybe I should keep dismissing it because I'm going fucking broke this winter :lol

The game will sell really well. Most everyone that can run it will buy it simply because it's the new "that game" that you just HAVE to see. Same as Doom 3, or other games of that sort of visual impressiveness were.

Bioshock and Halo 3 were impressive, but quite frankly neither have shit on this.

Hmm...I'm still skeptical. Remember when they gave Doom 3 a 94%? I hope the "OMG teh nextgen graphix!!!" isn't clouding their judgment. Not that I want it to fail, I just wasn't too impressed with the beta.

I can't say because I havn't played it, but the environments look and act amazingly. I felt like other FPS environments are so static. HL2 made a huge step in the right direction, and Crysis takes another step. I mean, it ACTUALLY looks like a jungle.

Thing I hated the most about the demo was the stealth darts didn't perm KO :( I'm walking along and get shot at from behind because they are just a temp KO :(

Engineering vs design, as far as I'm concerned. The environments here are lifelike and certainly dynamic like nothing else (well, until FC2), but they are also incredibly uninteresting. I feel like Far Cry already introduced me to this state of being baffled at the wonder of it all, so the impact isn't that great this time around. The combat also feels engineered, overly so. Deep and again dynamic, but also quite sterile. I don't know, I guess this one isn't for me.

In my opinion Crysis offers way more than either Bioshock and Halo 3 gameplay wise. How was Halo 3 innovative? It wasn't. It was fun though. Bioshock? Most overrated game of the year. The crysis demo was amazing. Can't wait to play through this. I'll get a 8800GT for this game.

Really? I'm not sure I can think of any relatively high profile game that didn't score highly there.
Looking at Metacritic, GameRankings, etc., on the most recent high profile PC titles...

...so far, PC Gamer is around 2-3% lower than most major sites and magazines on stuff like Orange Box (94%), BioShock (94%), World in Conflict (93%).

The human A.I. in Crysis is "spectacular"? I find that very difficult to believe considering how shitty the A.I. in Far Cry was. I notice that PC Gamer gave Far Cry a 95%. What did they have to say about its A.I.?

It's called over thinking while actively pursuing a negative opinion.

A game like Crysis can't get 98%. Heck, only a few games actually reaches that kind of score. I mean, come-the-fuck-on.

Not to be a wet blanket, but haven't you come down hard on every FPS released this year? Maybe the genre just isn't your bag?

What the fuck is this even supposed to mean? "A game like Crysis". You mean a PC game? A FPS?

The game kind of calls for a good deal of involvement though, so I'm pretty much forced to "overthink" it. Not sure what you mean to say about actively pursuing negative opinions, as i don't recall having a terribly negative opinion of the game going into it. As said, I don't think it's for me, but it certainly seems to be very good at what it does.

PC Game.

Oh yeah, and it's a game I can't play on maximum settings.
