there is a deep contrast btw how it looks in outside areas, and the inside areas, insides look totally dated and trash, while outdoors yes it still holds up because it was ahead of its time in the graphics department, animations are stiff yes agree and ive said many times before, i can;t play games with rigid animations anymore, the movement in sniper ghost warrior 3 and the crysis 2 and 3 games feels much more alive and smooth, and weapon models have advanced aswell.

Stiff animations don't bother me.
Just people hold Crysis up as if it's on another level, when in fact... it is a product of the time it was released.

It's Star Citizen ships, this project got feature in 'player of the week' from CIG, the developers of Star Citizen.

But the focus of my answer was the Forrest which is using a simple painter over a height map, it create trees, grass etc.. automatically.

I used a custom Unreal engine build with a couple Nvidia tech, like volumetric lightning and fluids.

So.... even further into my replay of Crysis. Out of the alien ship, into the frozen jungle... and I'm really having to force myself to play.

While, it really does look amazing... fighting the Ceph is so bad. They are bland and tedious in combat, can kill you in one hit... even with full armor. And, the level design funnels you down a single path, removing the open ended nature of the earlier levels.

Meh I say. Meh.

LOL, I had the best gfx card from both nvidia and ati at the time of the online beta was going on.

LOL, I was running like less then 10 fps, Muahahaaa.

Took awhile to run the game cause modern system at that time couldn't run crysis, hence:

Can it run Crysis????

No. They are never referred to as the Ceph in the original game, but... as we learn in the sequels... it's what they are called.
So... screw it.

Actually the same aliens. The squid like things you see inside the ship, the zero gravity bit... those are Ceph.

The differences between the first game and the sequels, are the exo-suits the Ceph use for combat.

Any way of stopping this game from being locked to 50Hz with vsync enabled? Can't stand screen tearing and gsync doesn't appear to work. :/

You think that's bad? Try playing over HDMI. 24FPS limit is just great

It's an insult to Crysis by comparing it with ARMA.

The 24hz bug is common, but fixed for me by hitting alt and enter a few times.

Why has an Arma comparison came up?

And finished with Crysis.
Didn't finish the game, but, done. Made it to the second the last level, Ascension. Flying the Vtol.

And... four times in a row, I've made it to the end of the level... and the game shutdowns.
There's some scripted dialog between Nomad and Psycho. The screen fades to black, and then... back at desktop. I've tried quick saving before the end, replaying the entire level. And a couple other things, but each time, same spot, the exact same result.

So... done. Uninstalled. And moving on to Crysis: Warhead.

1... level?
Warhead is almost as long as Crysis. And, I liked it better.
Slightly better visuals, much better performance (since they dropped DX10)... Psycho was a more entertaining character then Nomad. And better pacing.

the first level and the second maybe were ok, but then when u get to the airfield , its just a boring ending to what should have been a dlc to the campaign of the first game, and not a game on its own, the ending of crysis is more of a grand finale rather than the simplistic finish i would say of warhead.

I really enjoyed the frozen levels in Warhead, much better then the frozen level in the first game.
And, there's a lot that happens between the second level and the finale on the airfield.
Of Warhead's 7 levels, the only one I didn't like was the airfield. And, just because the final boss was incredibly disappointing. But, still, felt more solid then the ending of the original Crysis.

And, I find it funny you say it should have been DLC... when people beg for expansions and stand alone addons and hate DLC these days.
And really, Warhead has a good size to it. 7 levels, compared to the first games 11.

by the way, on what settings are you guys playing the game, the game doesn't go along well with new hardware, i ve tried it before and there are many sudden dips in performance in many places during the second level.
i was just reinstalling the game and went to youtube to listen to the main theme music for the game and it truly brings back memories back in the day of how i was juicing every bit of perfornance to make the game run at 30 fps, love every bit of the theme music for the game

I've finished it before. I'm replaying the series.
I finished it back in 2007 when it was first released. And... I thought the ending kind of... sucked.

The final level looked great, but, the "boss fight" was bland and forgettable. And, then... a poorly done cliffhanger ending.
I was actually kind of relieved the game kept crashing no matter what I tried to fix it. From the alien ship forward... the game is a complete chore to play.

Maybe i'm reading it wrong, but i think the point TR2N is making is that the game is buggy and crashes at the end.

I do agree performance is still awful though, it's quite common to have low framerates and if you have monitoring software on you can see GPU usage also drops substantially.
It does make it easier to run the game at 1440/2160 when 1080 is not very good though.

The AA in the game is awful so the game looks ugly alot of the time and nowadays i am on a TV and sitting far away, i clearly had lower standards a decade ago as i cannot understand why this did not bother me on a 22inch 16x10 screen.

So refreshing to return to this game after my bad experience with prey.

Man... this game is da BomB!
PC gamer 4 life...

Damian_azreal,

I can understand your gripe. But as a gamer going back 15-20 years, you have to appreciate the logic of pc gamers who always upgraded hardware for graphics nirvana. Conversely, there are those who want a story-line and graphics is merely secondary.

My gripe is with prey. A game just released, yet visually is so contrived you might as well get out your pc's from 1999.

Forum nature is that everyone's viewpoint is subjective.
I am just shocked at the current state of pc graphics in modern games.
