Crysis Demo Nears, Now Available for Preorders

inCrysis has word that the Crysis demo is now available for preorder customers, as promised a day in advance of the demo's full release tomorrow. They mention receiving reports of problems (a crisis?) some users are having launching or decrypting the demo, which are also mentioned on the EA Forums (thanks Voodoo Extreme), but its not clear how widespread these issues are. For those who have not preordered, the Crysis Demo Download Live Countdown Timer (thanks Gamer's Hell) is going to zero in on the demo's release, though it currently says "The countdown will be tuned when EA & Crytek release official timing." Finally, there's a Crysis Q&A on Shacknews talking with Crytek's Cevat Yerli about the game's technology.

There are now FPS's out there who are far less generic and offer the same graphical eye-candy then Crysis. What's the deal here?

Well the deal is your simply mistaken. Now if you have an older computer the geometry and amount of raw power a level demands won't look all that outstanding comparatively but...
With a proper machine, it's probably unparalleled, I'll know for sure when I play through it.

You can't compare some effects in some corridor with what this does in a full outdoor environment, the raw power required is pretty intense. Oblivion was great in it's time, this takes things to another level.

The fact is the quality is so high that it would be very easy for one to notice any minimalistic art design in a level, it would stick out like a sore thumb. But the fact is every aspect of a level is so well done, with so much attention to detail, that it all compliments the other without any glaring shortcomings. I'm sure there are experts in finding shortcomings that will find many, they feed on it, but objectively it's pretty impressive. All of that rendering comes at a price but medium settings looks really good too.
