Head shots are definitely a must as it can take a few shots to the body to bring them down, costing you precious time as you get shot by his buddies. I ran it pretty smooth with all settings on High, 1920x1080 and with 4x AA.
Although I did completely crash my computer 2 times and noticed a few graphical glitches such as shadows stretching forever across the screen in some areas and 1 tree that I shot the hell out of but it never fell, just had a completely decimated core.
Finally got it downloaded and installed. Tried it on XP and 64bit Vista. Vista 64 locks up before the first intro, and XP locks up while skydiving at the beginning. Wow. Tried several times.
intel 6600 core duo 8800 GTX (768) 2 gigs All latest drivers, etc., etc. :uhm: :confused:
Finally got it working. Used the 32bit version in Vista 64 bit instead of the 64 bit version and it worked great. I can't imagine the gfx looking better in 64 bit but if they do then they will be something to behold because they already look awesome. So far, Crysis is everything it was built up to be. Simply outstanding! Crytek has raised the bar for video games by a whole lot. Crysis is simply in a class of its own. Nov. 16th can't get here soon enough.
small question, the games plays smooth but the sound isnt, they are all speaking with gaps in it, but the game etc runs just normal smooth... any idea's?
Just tried downloading it but gave up after it was telling me it had 15 hours to go! And i have up to 10 meg broadband! All the servers are pretty much full! I'm gonna wait until they have calmed down a bit but it sure looks awesome i cant wait to play it! :rolleyes: =p
mmh just downloaded it from nvidia. damn fast so.
Good shout :cool: downloading right now! and at nearly 600k/s thanks :bows:
The cream of the crop

343guiltymc;4001313I just played it........Well it was....good. The graphics weren't bad at low (I didn't dare turn it any higher), but the game still feels like the same as farcry.
The graphics are night and day from low to medium.
Though, this time, headshots are more important as the enemy seems stronger (either that, or my guns have gotten weaker). The AI doesn't seem that much smarter, still standing around to be killed by grenade explosions. The koreans speaking english sounds really hilarious.
You didn't play it on hardest did you?
Even on normal they seem to have Master Chief armor once they spot you. I've played through it several times on each difficulty and it still seems that head shots are needed to drop enemies with out blowing a whole magazine into them.
Hell, on the highest difficulty your rounds just seem to bounce off of them if you hit them in the chest. And the fact that they can run at you full steam and nail you with every shot, while I can hardly hit them while prone and aiming for the chest doesn't help either.
I didn't make it!
im d'ling it now 84% done, 27min left, idk why im d'ling it, my comp wont run it, but im ordering a new videocard an some ram off of newegg tommorrow. :)
