Ships Ahoy - Crysis 2

As Crytek tweets, today is the launch day in North America for Crysis 2, their CryENGINE 3-powered first-person shooter sequel. To celebrate, they've released a Crysis 2 launch trailer featuring a rendition of New York, New York by Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr. aka B.o.B. For those interested in sampling the game, a multiplayer Crysis 2 demo was released at the beginning of this month. The trailer is embedded below.

I really hate how they introduce you to the game, though. The limited edition servers aren't authenticating? Crappy cinematic? Low resolution? Lower detail than the actual gameplay?

it was odd that the intro cinematics were low res on first launch. but after changing the resolution settings in game the next time i restarted the cinematics were higher res. it seems the game defaults to a low res instead of auto detecting your monitors native res. its lazy programming on the part of crytek.

im still looking for the command line to change zoom toggle. i hate having to hold down the key to use gun scope. they removed/disabled a lot of commands that were available on the demo.

EDIT: found the zoom toggle command. it is apparently available WHILE playing the game in the options menu. it disappears when you are not playing and simply going to the options menu? i guess so. great QA from EA!
