As for the CRYENGINE 3 it looks very much average....TBH I prefer the UNREAL / FROSTBITE ENGINE in fact.


Hmm... I was afraid of this. So the Cryengine 3 is just an optimized graphical upgrade for the consoles. Which means Super sampling the f**k out of everything, using Bloom in extremely unreal proportions, no volumetric effects and lower quality textures.

You know you are not onto a winner when you can run and slide max payne style in a MP game....NOTHING NEW AT ALL.


I beg to differ. I still haven't played a first person shooter where you can slide on the ground and shoot ands**t. The game Fear had some cool moves with the kicks and all but I never got into the Multiplayer.

Seriously you'll not like it Meats.

Downloaded the leaked beta. Looks not bad. Yes, very like Frostbite. Why? Still that's the
"early stages" leaked beta. Still same graphics options... er none. And erm DX9 as far as I
can see... Does look more in interesting compared to the MP Demo tho. Although still not
impressed with the FEAR-esque graphics. Nice special effects.

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

Anyone having logging in issues?

I created a mycrysis.com account (after waiting like 3 hours since the server is apparently overloaded... what a load ofs**te), and when I try to login, it tells me I can't log in with a name that has so and so characters. Problem is, it's all letters...

Trying to make an account in game tells me the e-mail is already in use EVEN though I JUST created it for the purpose of creating an account on Crysis 2... 5 MINUTES BEFORE.

Talk about a terrible f**king experience.

I must have been very lucky when making my account the other night, there is nothing more annoying then getting this crap when trying to play the game. I bet it will be like this when the game is actually released aswell.

My opinion is "Crytek, go f**k yourselves with a console lubed up with some Gamespy santorum!" WTF, Crysis 1 is 4+ years old at this point and seems like it is basically a better game in every way. Depressing. I hope Valve and BF3 can keep the PC gaming flame burning.

Gamepsy is a piece ofs**t idea....why the f**k they are using it for Crysis is beyond me.

I accidently got 3rd Person view in Crysis Demo? Obviously it has this option also..
perhaps for the console zealots...

Gamespy is horrid. The gameplay of this is just "decent".

Nothing about this game will want me to come back. It's just so easy to abuse cloaking, imo.
