Crytek was NEVER a consumer friendly company. All of their games to date were tech demo's trying to sell their engine to other companies.
In addition to the above, Crytek has OUTRIGHT LIED to customers. When Crysis was released they maintained that the end user MUST have DX10 to experience "Time of Day" and other physics bells and whistles. Our mod team was given a dev kit access to create our mod and I was privy to conversations from other companies about DirectX and these options. The response from Crytek was that there was just one variable to set to true/false to enable these extras.
Crytek was lying to all customers about DX10 requirement since they were paid by Microsoft to push Vista on those who were still using Windows XP. I say let Crytek burn, reap what you sow.
