Yeah, I’m not sure anyone is going to want to skate by on the 2GB of RAM listed as minimum. A lot of games now have 4GB a the minimum so I would imagine that a game in a series known for its graphics is going to be very sketchy at the minimum.

got invited to the amd beta, which im sure is nowhere near the polish and I ran at everything maxed. It looks great though.

Sounds like my PC should be able to run that fine at near-highest settings(AA probably at low, as well as a couple other things perhaps).

I’m not super excited about the game though, Crysis 1 was just okay, Warhead was fun, and Crysis 2 was just boring…I’ll probably pick C3 up in a year or 2 I guess.

Easily cleared the rec. 570 is still useful.

Meh, I liked crysis better when it was about huge open environments and fighting aliens that possessed Ice-based weaponry

Looks like I’ll be fine with my GTX 680…

Unfortunately I’m not to excited for this game.. Crysis 1 was great with the larger environments.. Crysis 2 basically felt like an extended tech demo to me. Very boring.

They already ruined the story. Give me the originally planned sequel for Crysis, where you play as Prophet heading back into the island (hence the cliffhangar ending), and disavow Crysis 2 completely. This is just a cheap attempt to reconcile their original plan where the player gets to play as Prophet, but Crysis 2 did not feel like a sequel. It felt like they took some ideas from Crysis and created an entirely new story.
“Nanosuit? Check. Aliens? Check. OK guys, we have all the important elements from Crysis, now let’s set it in a new location, introduce a new protagonist nobody cares about, make the aliens completely different from the previous games, kill off the best character from the first game (don’t worry, we’ll bring him back somehow), make a needlessly convoluted story, and this time let’s make the game a lot more linear since that’s the direction we’ve been heading since Far Cry.”
