Crysis Patch Within Two Weeks

A Crysis Chat Log on inCrysis recaps last night's IRC session (story) with Crytek's Cevat Yerli and NVIDIA's Roy Taylor discussing the just-released first-person shooter. Technical topics are the focus, touching on questions about XP performance versus Vista and things like that. Word from NVIDIA is to expect performance improvements "almost with every single driver drop and patch of the game," and there's also word from Crytek on when to expect the first patch for the game: "We are collecting up all the user feedback now and planning patches that will address as much as possible as fast as possible. The first patch will be out in 7-14 days."

To be fair, on my decrepit old system (XP, Athlon 3500, 1 Gig, Geforce 7900) it runs fine at 1024x768 everything medium except shadows and volumetric. Solid 30-40fps.

Still, need to get a better rig so I can play this with top notch graphics.
If you look at all the benchmarks you'll see that an 8800GTX is only pulling in about 30-40fps on high, so without going SLI there's nothing out there to play it with top graphics with a sensible framerate. I've now sold my 8800GTS 320MB and have ordered an 8800GT 512MB, which benchmarks much closer to the GTX - obviously setting it all to high will be a bit much but hopefully it will run a bit smoother / better graphics.

Right now it looks about on par with Farcry, except the colors there were far prettier. Crysis is a bit gloomy/dark for my taste.
That was my opinion as soon as I played the MP Beta. I prefer the entire setting of Far Cry, with the idyllic light blue water colour and vivid foliage... I even prefer the character models animations, as Crysis looks a bit awkward in that department. Not only that but the AI seems terrible and hasn't made me want to replay through the demo.

Crysis looks stunning in the screenshots released but it's just too ambitious / poorly optimised and the gameplay just doesn't match the promise - I found the multiplayer tedious, unfocused and lonely (maps are so large). I've had much more fun with the games designed for computers this decade, like TF2, COD4, Bioshock and UT3.
