Oh god, another person who thinks Crysis was buggy or poorly optimized because an 8800 couldn't max it out. I am so tired of hearing these snarky remarks. For how amazing Crysis looks and everything it is putting on screen, the game is optimized like crazy.
That's officially THE most retarded thing I've read on this site all week.
Crysis can still give sub-30 fps dips even with 5870's in Crossfire. It's a terrible benchmark representation of a videocards potential because the game is poorly optimized.
Exactly. Even on cards several generations later the game is still not performing very well. To me Crysis was a failure from a technology and from a gaming perspective. I don't care if it is "technically" impressive if the performance is poor and the gameplay mediocre.
Still, I'm interested to see what they put out next, especially with a newly optimised engine and a fresh team working on it. If it doesn't involve aliens, mutants, sci-fi or anything vaguely similar then that will be a very good thing.
