Well I was pretty pumped to play this game on my new computer. I read in every review of the 4870x2 that, although you're not going to average 60fps at very high settings and res, at least it'll run amazing compared to other cards. Well, some people say they run very high settings, AF and AA on an 8800GT with a smooth frame rate, others say they have to turn down settings to high on their x280 to have an enjoyable experience. I really don't know what to believe anymore, all I know is that running high settings in DX9 mode at 1600x1050 will still dip into the low 20's during intense firefights. Really just annoying. I have to say, the game play seems awesome, but it's begging for a higher frame rate. In the hardest difficulty, you can be hit from very, very far away, and there's bullet lag too. It's hard aiming sub-30fps for someone's head in these conditions. I always play games at their highest difficulty with no problem, so this is kinda discouraging. Surprisingly, this game doesn't look nearly as good as I thought it would. Even on very high, a lot of the textures are blurry. The shadows are washed out. There's a lot of pop-in. The indoor environments especially look like crap. I'm only a few levels in, maybe they start to improve in appearance because there's no way the indoor parts could look this bad throughout the whole game. Craziest thing of all though, the parts that look the best run the best. There are a few scenes that look really amazing, and I get 50+fps at those parts. Just odd, the frame rate moves between 60-20 constantly and randomly, but the best looking scenes always run the best. So yeah, that's my experience and my opinions. I thought I'd be more disappointed but truthfully, I'm finding TF2 to be a much more fun and better looking game, so I guess that keeps me distracted . People think I'm nuts when I tell them that TF2 looks better than Crysis. I admit that I have TF2 maxed out with a consistently high frame rate, but when I played Crysis on very high for a little while I didn't remember it looking as good as TF2.
