Not this again. I was going to download Crysis to play, but then I decided I was going to start a website so I figured I woudl probably need to purchase the game to post benchmarks of the game.

Hey buddy, read my lips. Your mouth and DRM drives me to download your games instead of buying them.

See, funny thing here is there are over a million of users that actually BOUGHT your game. Yet, you decide instead of providing software support by working on patches to make your game playable and fix bugs that shouldn't exist in your launch product, you stop making the patch and then make an expansion.

So, why would we be inclined to continue to buy your game, when your partially broken game WE PAYED FOR - YOU DROP SUPPORT FOR IT LESS THAN A YEAR LATER. Then on top of that, you have the odassity to try to get MORE money from us by making an expansion instead of fixing the game we already bought.

I haven't even finished (and probably never will) war_ez version of Crysis, so no i wouldn't buy Crysis. However i do regret i haven't bought Far Cry. Maybe i will, if i find it somewhere. They don't have it anymore in the online shop where i usually buy games.
There is no real suspense in Crysis as you're one mother****in' killing machine with superduper powers. I prefered the mortal guy in a red havaiian shirt...

Far Cry came with my 5700LE graphics card, but technically i bought it...

About Crysis though, i pirated it, because i wanted to see what all the hype was about, and to see if it was worth diging some money out for the game, but unfortunetly, the performance and the way it was made, just put me off, i probably won't buy it, unless its in a £10 bonus pack with Warhead.

I think mine came with my 6800 GT, which I still have laying around somewhere. Probably collecting dust with my 2900 Xt.

i actually bought crysis, but EA has turned me from a EA fanboy into a EA hater in the last couple of years. its quantity over quality for them these days. who needs patches over 500mb and in airborne's case a few GB.

It seems like all they care about now is the graphics, yes it's nice to have a cracking looking game, but where is the gameplay these days?

I pirated this game too. To see if it was worth it.
IMO this game is nothing else then a nice tech-demo.

Not worth my time or money since it performs so badly and was/is full of bugs.

I bought the game. I am with Stukov, though. No proper support for a game that runs like crap on most systems. It's no wonder that people won't by it. That and their attitude have done it for me. No more Crytek products on this machine.

I bought crysis and was disappointed in how unpolished the game was. It took a third party to come up with a configuration to actually make it playable.

For those who are not aware of the config:

I tried the TOD and its a little too hardcore so I removed it. It pretty much doubled my fps in short is purely awesome.

The reason people pirated it more than any other game is because it ran so crap, and they did not want to waste money. If they had optimised the game properly and supported with patches we would not have had this situation.

Yeah, criticism, criticism, make a game like Crysis on your own before bashing others' work. You will come nowhere near 5% of what these guys did. So they deserve the money.

Nice config Captain Blamo, it might tempt me to re-install Crysis again, just to check it out.

Does anyone remember the rumours about a 7800GTX, being able to play Crysis on high graphics back in 2006/early 2007?

When the game launched, i remember seeing peeps with 8800GTX's not able to get above 10/20/25 fps... they tricked us to upgrade our PC's

It's their fault the game ran like crap on every system on launch.

I think we have the right to bash them.

That's what one of the Crysis developers or PR guys said.

Dude it really works and the hundreds of custom sp/mp maps that are available are fantastic. The modders are the ones who made this game great and all props should go to them. The sp maps alone will keep you busy for hundreds of hours.

I'm not going to argue on this, there are countless examples of people who had a satisfactory experience.

Of course, they are entitled to your money right from the moment you illegally download a copy of the game *they* made.

And if you make a living off your talent and sell it, you won't like if someone steals your work without putting a penny. Put yourself in their place.

My FarCry came with 6800 GT too (unfortunately I had to RMA it and bought the game again for 9,90€ after a while). I played it with GeForce 4 TI 4200 AGP8x because 6800 GT was broken and it ran just fine.

Warhead is going to cost 21€ at Play.com and I think that's quite reasonable price.

Better yet; Clear Sky goes for £18 UK pounds there. I pre-ordered it as soon as I saw. Free shipping, too


GSC Game World deserves the money oh, so much more than whiny, full of themselves Crytek. Not gonna get Warhead, that's for sure.

Not only the buy or "steal" the game... the bloody DEMO was given only to FILEPLANET PAYING Subscribers... now you tell me if that's not the way to put off people from buying it.

I wanted to buy it for the multiplayer... I didn't and I don't play it.

I've only played the demo, but to be honest I just couldn't in any way get into the game, I know some people love it with a passion, but I just didn't think it was more than graphics. To me it wouldn't even be worth pirating.
