    why can't i open the hatch?

    SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

    Well not much of one, alright, i'm on the aircraft carrier, I just beat the first boss, and now that big ship has came up from the water. They say to open it's hatch, so i fire rockets at the thing, i've probably fired 50 and nothing happens!!! Is this just some sort of error or how many rockets does it take to open that thing?

    From what I have heard the transition from Demo to Full Version is just extra levels... is this correct?

    3000 posts yay!

    InCrysis - Chat with Crytek: Cevat Yerli and Nvidia: Roy Taylor

    "Neoeyal: On which graphic card was Crysis developed, 8800 Ultra or 8800 GTX and triple SLI or dual?


    NVIDIA_Roy: All of them! As part of the support for the team we armed them with every GPU we have and with every option we have. If we make it then Crytek has it! Seriously, they want to develop at different levels so they don't only use the most powerful GPUs available."

    So at least triple SLI :D

    Ok, I'll sum up my impressions from the game.


    Crysis review

    Technical:
    1. The engine, marvelous but demanding graphics. Physics are great but buggy at times and the same with the soundengine
    2. Best foliage/trees so far in a game
    3. It would be great to get rid of some more pop ups (well, I'm running on medium settings)
    4. Fast level loads, doesn't eat up a lot of RAM (never been over 1GB) Levels would benefit from some more variation
    5. Do the bodies have to disappear after the die? And why disable the body physics? (German laws, yes) I would like to be able to carry uncouncious and dead bodies. For fun and some stealth
    6. Framerate goes all to hell once the snow appears. Does it really have to have such a huge hit on the performance?

    7. Kudos for a highly customizable engine with editor

    Overall gameplay:
    1. The game is way too short and linear despite the fact that the areas are rather large and give some freedom on how to deal with the missions
    2. The only thing you really do is shoot or occasionally find a button to press.
    3. Some poor trial and error parts, and some poor levels such as the
    beep
    level.
    4. Pretty much no effect at all depending on what you do. Do I really need that intel? Why not a computer interface and some hacking on my own? Deus Ex did it just fine.
    5. Stealh period is way too short (I'll try to adjust through .cfg file) and silenced weapons lose too much power with distance.
    6. Choppers have extremely good eyesight, despite the fact that I had been cloaked or hiding in bushes it appeared and began to shoot at me. Regular weapons have no bite on the choppers, pretty much need a rocket launcher
    7. Boss battles are dull and they're overpowered, especially on delta difficulty level.
    8. Disappointed in the lack of "proper" indoor levels..Far Cry was better in this.
    9. Why does the tranquilizer always work, does it really penetrate the body armor and helmet?
    10. Alien weapon overheats and has the same click sound as well?


    Music:
    Far more generic than Far Cry which mixed moody electronics with great industrial pieces. Turned it down. Music doesn't always calm down once the battles are over.

    1 Why don't the NPCs try to free themselves when you get a hold of them? It's pretty fun to throw them from great hights though, but disappointing that they can't swim(!)
    2 Too few enemy types...and all are pretty much Rambo kick ass types. When will we see games with more varied personalities? I want to see an AI freak out because of all the mayhem and try to hide. Once you find this NPC you might not feel the need to pull the trigger to kill him/her...btw, almost no females. Why? Why not meet up with a undercover agent working on your side? Exchange some information and/or some gear? How about NPCs that desert and give themselves up?
    3. What happened to NPCs looking for traces of blood and other signs trying to track you down?
    4. Overall the AI works well though, and provide some tough resistance (as said, sometimes way too tough)

    3/5 (from a long time gamer, since Intellivision/C64/NES days :) )

    Very good review there, Kaleid! I have to say that I agree with most of what you've said. Yes, this game is still far from perfect but it's still very very good :p

    well i dont know if they lied about performance. But the thing is that even with low fps..the game still amazingly playable...i mean, i cant past 20fps with alla high, with drops to 13-15 fps...but i never had any gameplay problem. Some games are simply unplayable with such fps...but crysis makes an awesome job. Yes he need extremly powerfull pc to run all on high ( well not soe extremely looking that even mine can run it without no problems in high mode ), but as i said, even with low fps it still precectly playable...

    Have a guess. Of course it's DX10 because that's it's main advantage over DX9 right? Oh, I love being sarcastic...

    Loving the game so far, the SMG is the most baddass automatic weapons ever, graphics are as amazing as the demo showed, gameplay is excellent with me actually planing the way im doing things which is a breathe of fresh air considering ive been playing COD4(which is amazing) but very generic in that way.

    Easily a challenger for game of the year, just shows what a decent team of devs can do when given lots of money and alot of development time.

    Just completed it, took roughly 4/5 hours... not that long i thought... but maybe i played it too fast. Anyway, amazing game, ran very nice on high details (not very high) and AA x4, AS x8. :) i cant wait for the sequal, if there is one :S

    *spoiler alert

    agreed, since the demo , ive been playing without framerate counters and the only time i experienced really slow gameplay was in the level just before "ascension" where we were fighting aliens using guns and whatever just before the VTOL came to evacuate us..even the snow wasnt that bad (in my experience)

    and just now, on the carrier level, on my first mission (i think it was just walking towards the place where you find prophet was seated) i thought that part was really smooth and i thought i had high fps..so i checked my counters and i was running 20ish fps..i couldnt believe how smooth it was

    I am having great success with it running on my current rig, just have not been able to choose any widescreen resolutions except 1680x1050 (my native res). I would like to run it at 1280x720 instead of 1280x968 that I am running now...

    Any ideas why I don't get the other resolutions as an option?

    Also anyone try running in DX9? All I get is a grey screen and some tearing once in the game...
