I'm not whining about anything. I'm saying that the game was poorly thought out, not fun, and also way too graphically intense (poorly optimized). If crysis had been a free tech demo or something, fine, but the game was not fun to play, and the o0o0o0 factor of pretty graphics wore off pretty quick. And i consider a game that cant be played by even the highest end machines over a year after release, to be poorly optimized. There are many other games that accomplish the same "wow pretty" factor without bringing a top end machine to a crawl.

And i'm pretty sure FEAR was crappily coded, heck, it STILL crashes my machine.

Don't most cards get frame rates of 100~ when it comes to Fear?

crysis is coded poorly, if it wasnt they wouldint have released warhead with optimizations.

crysis is coded rather inefficiently, but you cant deny its among the best games, graphically, thats ever been produced, the only thing i've seen that can compete is STALKER:CS, and even that falls when you knock Crysis into Very High... just because we cant max it out now doesnt mean we wont be able to with a bit of excess GPU power... wait six months and you'll see systems pulling some nice numbers on it

bottom line is, although its got some code errors, Crysis was made to be graphically satisfying for years, and thats the main reason you cant max it

omg that made me laugh... HAHAHA!!!!

but really though.. that game on high is playable with an 8800gt at 1680x1050.. and still looks better than just about any game out today...

so i don't understand the hullabaloo.... Very High was made to last a LONG time.. and it has... you need SLi GTX260/280 to play it reasonably at 1680x1050.. and tri sli of either of the two for above!
