kinda......lol

tri SLI 8800 ultra OC makes it playable 1920 x 1200 with 4 x FSAA.

http://en.expreview.com/?p=146&page=7

crysis still brings three of the single fastest cards perilously close to choppiness in this crazy rig test. clearly crysis is about a year too soon. question is, why on earth would crytek design a game that can barely run with three of the fastest most expensive graphics cards available, even taking the resolution into account. crysis continues to boggle my mind especially after benches like these.

what did crytek think we all game on? quadro plex model S4 pro graphics or what?

>> Re: crysis designed for 8800 series
This is exactly my point. Look at UT3. Can't say that game has crappy graphics yet they run on geforce 6200. Crysis just won all "GOTY" awards from all sites and single people but its only because they decided to screw everyone and make the game one step closer to hollywood production gfx. I mean as an achievemnt it's definitely amazing and looks awesome but at what cost? To barely be able to play on max settings u need a 8800GTX? Thats crazy. I totally agree that they released it a year early as far as computer requirements. Being very familiar with the gaming industry I know that making a "photorealistic" game isnt a very hard task for today game developers. They could but the only reason they slowly make the games better looking is 1. It takes a while to develop an engine with advanced graphics and 2. The better the gfx, the less people will buy the game. They always have to go find compromise. In Crytek-EA's case, they just said "ahh let all those 81% of all gamers burn with their 8800GTSes." 'Course I am not from their dept. of marketing to see the selling figures but because of such high requirements on the video part, I'd wonder how much of this game can they sell.

Crysis is absolutely NOTHING special. It was overhyped and unplayable by the vast majority of gamers out there. It is perhaps as "innovative" as FEAR was back in the day.

sales have been awful. really really bad for a game of this profile, leading to people saying to me pc gaming is dead. i dont think its dead, you only have to look at warcrafts subscriptions to see that. but the willingness of people to go out and blow a fortune on the latest kit to play a handful of games and even then not very well is pretty much dead on the whole. crysis sold like 86 thousand copies in a month. which is nothing short of appalling,

when you look at console games and the high profile titles selling over a million copies in the same timeframe easily with (comparitively) small userbases, then crysis is shocking and UT3 even worse.

if crytek want to recoup the money poured into crysis, then they will have no choice but to port the game to the consoles. i know they said if it was succesful on pc, but it being a bonafide flop then that gives them no choice really. how on earth they can get it to run without cutting it up really bad or rewriting the whole thing i just dont know when it struggles on quad core three GPU monsters.

I have yet to play it but everywhere I read they say it's incredible. When you mean unplayable do you mean like can't finish the game due to a bug or low frames per second (badly optimized) cause If it's low frames I can deal with it.

FEAR is one of the worst game I have played in years. Crysis is no where near as bad. FEAR's gameplay was boring and was one of the most linear FPS games I have ever played. FEAR added absolutely nothing new to the genre. Crysis's gameplay may not be revolutionary but at least the game offers more then one way of completing objectives, competent AI, customizable weapons, nano-suit powers and fully destructible environments. This type of quality gameplay was not found in many games released in 2007. There is no doubt in my mind that Crysis is pushing the genre in the right direction, whether or not it sells millions.

Excuse my language - but that's f**kin shocking! Tri-SLi and you get a pathetic 30FPS.
Well, there's no danger I'd buy another 8800 just to play Crysis "smoother" on SLi
let alone a Tri-SLi. Crytek you are havin a laf aren't you?!! Get your game patch
out now for optimisation. Really, Crytek, you have took the p**s here with your
unoptimised game. 3 of the most powerful cards to date working together on this
game and an achievment of an EXTRA 15fps . Who's tryin to kid who here?

I understand that the point in purchasing a card such as the 8800 Ultra is to play every game on the market completely maxed out giving the most eye candy as possible. However, will it kill you to turn down the settings a bit? All I hear is people complaining about how it takes so much to play this game, yet, they fail to see the fun gameplay, open environment (non-linear gameplay), and other qualities of the game that makes it such a good game. If you care so much about graphics as opposed to all the qualities of a game that make it great, be prepared to spend a lot to keep up with technology and stop complaining.

Brenden no one is complaining about the the gaming method of Crysis. It's the
optimisation of the damn game. Fook me 3 8800GTX Ultras get 15FPS more than
what one 8800GTX Ultra does. What p**ses me off is that Crytek was incredibly
misleading in how well this game runs on VERY HIGH settings before the launch.

First, I'm not Brendan and I hope I don't have a multiple personality disorder.

Second, Crytek wasn't misleading at all. They said that the game would be "playable" with technology dating back two years, not "playable" in the sense that it would work fine completely maxed out. Also, people should have expected a game requiring a powerful machine to play it at 100% when the demo was played at 10x7 with two 8800 Ultras.

Also, to be fair, SLi isn't the most efficient thing in the world, nevertheless triple SLi.

Actually I was replying to Brenden. My next msg was pointed at you.

what we really need is the geforce 9, with about 256 odd shaders at mega clockspeeds due to a 55nm process or something and a gig of GDDR4 lol that might fix the crysis crisis

:O

Well,I never bought crysis because I could hardly play the demo at a respectable level and I wasn't impressed with the demo. I ended up buying UT3 which runs great on a wider range of computer systems.When I bought it UT3 was top of the charts. I saw crysis sitting on a lower place in the games chart. Which was kind of sad. They made this game with impossibly high specs. If I built myself a new system I still wouldn't be able to play it at what I consider a respectable level it seems. So I'll give it a miss.

I agree. FEAR was fun for the first hour or so, but then it became the same thing over and over again. Move on, garner the attention of the guards, throw grenade, flank and then slo-mo or just slo-mo and get head shots. The game never really got interesting until those ninjas appeared and even then, they only lasted for a small portion of the game which was disappointing. Even that giant mech walker with rocket launchers wasn't that interesting. The only thing that kept me going was the well executed Hollywood scare/tension tactics and storyline. As a result, it's the kind of game you play through once and never play again. Additionally, I've never played any of the expansions.

people people... they made the game future proof. thats all. suck it!


Also, the gameplay isn't so great.. a lot of things in it remind me of halo so its kind of like "s**t, they sold 20 million copies in their triology? what was so unique about it?

then u get this lame copy cat with a superly bugged laggy multiplayer where u find the most weirsdest gltiches ever ( people shooting at the sky but bullets going at u, cars skipping across the map, and icould go on. )
