Damnit, now I have to get a job to buy a computer that can actually play this.
Yeah, people act like they must run it on VERY HIGH or else it's unplayable. I had no problem playing it on my 3.2GHz P4 with an X850XT.people are just bitter they still can't play Crysis. Me, Crysis was the first FPS in a LONG TIME that really held my attention. Half life 2? No thanks, way too much shooting, not nearly enough story. Crysis had enough to keep me engaged and caring where the story went. Add to that being able to completely change how you play the game each time around with the suit...fun stuff.
Last I checked, one of the major complaints about Crysis was its shooting mechanics with how enemies could absorb so many bullets from such powerful weapons without a nanosuit of their own.I'd love to hear examples of FPS's with better gameplay than Crysis from the people who think it sucks.
Call of Duty? Nope, on rails kill millions of respawning enemies. Boring.
Half Life? More varied than Call of Duty, not as fun to play as Crysis. Better story and overall better game than Crysis, sure, but the shooting part of Crysis is superior.
STALKER? The combat isn't very good at all (I'm actually being nice here because I love STALKER ). Great game, and probably better than Crysis, but if you're evaluating it on how fun it is to shoot things it sucks.
From a pure "how fun it is to shoot stuff" perspective, Crysis is the best FPS that has ever been made.
Depends on the difficulty. What I've noticed though, is that Crytek, through interviews and such, seems to have acknowledged that "they broke the mold with the graphics, but dropped the ball with some of the finer elements of gameplay. Such as bad ai with the aliens, the game being too open with not enough focus on the story, etc."Last I checked, one of the major complaints about Crysis was its shooting mechanics with how enemies could absorb so many bullets from such powerful weapons without a nanosuit of their own.
Crysis isn't a game where its just fun to just shoot stuff unless you turn cheats on and give yourself the uber weapons and infinite ammo immediately, but that's not how it is, they make it very hard to kill targets and very little ammo, making you scour for weapons as well as purposefully try and keep you from shooting everything you see, emphasizing stealth and avoiding conflict.
Granted, that kind of gameplay can be fun in its own right, but you can't sit here and try and tell us this game is more fun than other FPS games because of its superior shooting aspect, an aspect that hardly exists...
I never understood this, even on delta I had no problem dropping guys if I aimed well. The only times I ever had trouble in Crysis was when fighting a bunch of guys at once.Last I checked, one of the major complaints about Crysis was its shooting mechanics with how enemies could absorb so many bullets from such powerful weapons without a nanosuit of their own.
Exactly. It's pretty laughable if people really think it's a tech demo. I'd like to know what games they play instead.You could also say that about 90% of FPSs in the last few years. In fact, I can't think of any singleplayer FPS since then that was clearly better than it.
Crysis was a solid and fun game, and it had more open-ended gameplay and variety in level design than what you typically see in FPSs. These things have been done before in other FPSs but are still rare in general, especially in modern times.
I do. It's such a common but ridiculous complaint.I never understood this, even on delta I had no problem dropping guys if I aimed well. The only times I ever had trouble in Crysis was when fighting a bunch of guys at once.
Oh yea! You have to take the suppressor off. It takes off like 70% of the damage. When I play Crysis Wars, I HATE it when I spawn with the suppressor on. I have myself setup to naturally take it off immediately. Then, you maul people.I do. It's such a common but ridiculous complaint.
Just about every time, these people have the FY71 with suppressor attached, pinging them from a good distance.
Yes, the normal dudes take like 8 hits then.
They had to balance by making long range hits significantly weaker. They had to balance by having some downside to a suppressor, as well as a downside to the FY71 compared to SCAR (among other things, SCAR drops off much slower in dmg IIRC).
I don't play on Delta but I always drop guys in a couple of hits, because I use the SCAR mostly (aim well and it has plenty of ammo) and only use the suppressor when up close or unless I can make a long range headshot (strength, prone, sniper scope).
