    Well I finally played the demo and I am glad this game is coming out next week.

    It ran completely playable on 1680x1050 with everything on High no AA with my 8800 GTS 640. There were few stutters here and there but even in the 20 fps range this game plays well. Now I just need to install my SC 8800 GT and see how that runs it.

    I'll buy it and play it if my quadcore doesn't arrive, but reinstall everything to experience the beautiful graphics and immersive environment. You could make a stunning horror survival game out of this engine.

    Modders, do my bidding!

    I got UT3 and CoD4, no more monez for Crysis atm :(
    But I`m sure UT3 and CoD4 pay off more in the long run. I might get Crysis some other way, I only wanna see the SP.

    If it's just an engine showoff, then why bother supporting it?

    Thats because they know its gonna be a good game and for whatever reason feel a need to hate on it! But thats just like all things in life when your on top or good at something people will always hate!

    "Just open up your heart and let that hate out"! A cookie for whoever can tell me what TV show that is from??

    I think I'm definitely gonna buy it -- For the modding potential, because let's face it: The modding community is gonna have a blast with this one, unless of course they turn back on the community like the World in Conflict team seemed to do(They haven't even gotten the map editor out yet! :D)

    I retract my previous statement. This game is really fun to experiment in. (I can't say much for the game itself, though)

    I've just had a few hours of fun going about in one of those wooden boats on the high seas, propelling it by power punching it, and then stealthily killing off the bad guys in the boats.

    I am so gonna make a video of it with the track "rock the boat". Question is if I'm gonna have enough hand grenades for fishing! :)

    Contrary to what i thought i'd be doing i'm actually going to go ahead and buy this when it comes out after semester finishes. Sure its Far Cry 1.5, but its alot more fun than Far Cry, without the cheese and i bought Far Cry when it came out so i may as well get Crysis as it looks like it'll be twice the game Far Cry was.

    Nemesis6, Crytek did turn their back on the modding community with Far Cry 1, they did an extremely poor job at supporting modders when it came to using the Sandbox etc, we shall see if they perform better thist ime around.

    They gave the engine to modders way before the game came out. I think they are doing a better job already.

    I was prominent in the FC modding scene before I went to source modding, so I have to call extreme bullshit on that.

    Only to a very select few, I think 3 mods total, no more, no less.

    ^4 mods I think. And it does not really matter anyway as the SDK is coming out with the game (Or shortly after).

    The level editor was pretty sweet, wouldn't mind being able to port to 3ds max and use for backgrounds in some of my projects.

    1UP review is online.

    http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3164321&sec=REVIEWS

    8/10.

    I won't say "i told you so".

    I'm sure Samon will say it for me.

    (I'll still end up getting it anyway. Far Cry was a turd and i got that)

    I told you so. Still looks fun, and I'd love to play through it all.

    That's a great review for Crysis, no doubt. But i have never agreed with that reviewer on almost everything he's reviewed so i simply don't trust it.

    Now if someone like Shawn Elliot from 1UP or Kristen Reed(?) from Eurogamer, or even Jeff Gerstmann from Gamespot reviewed and gave it that score i'd be more interested and eager to play Crysis.

    (I can't believe i know those reviewers by name. I may as well wear a t-shirt that says "vagina repellant")

    Ocampo is an idiot. Jeff Gerstmann FTW. I used to like Greg something until he sold his soul to the devil and awarded PD0 something like 9.9.

    Wait tell me more about these reviewers, people. Post some reviews they made that you liked, that really show why they are so good.

    Also post the bad reviewers.

    Thanks in advance.

    That one page spat is a review? Just when 1up had earned my respect they go and churn out this little rant from a person who looked like they hacked it together for their english high school paper. Sad times...

    At least gamespot gave their review more than 3/4th of a page.
