While the actual content of the game might not live up to the original the hardware requirements certainly do, [H]ard|OCP reports that "no single-GPU video card tested today able to play it at the highest in-game settings at 2560x1600".  For those gaming at a mere 1080p you will be able to max out settings on AMD or NVIDIA's top single GPU cards.  It is not just about the resolution, this iteration of CryEngine features four different anti-aliasing technologies to choose from, each with their own benefits and costs.  Check out [H]'s review to see the screenshots of the various settings as well as estimating the kind of performance your system can achieve.

We look at all the AA modes compared in performance and image quality, and we find out if this game is a step forward for PC gaming, or a step backward."

no adjustable FOV + no benchmark mode = not a real PC game.

Uhm, yeah.

Just because you don't have adjustable FOV and a benchmark mode doesn't make the game is not 'real'. That is just your pure opinion.

Regardless, Crysis 2 came out as a console game and this one is just milking it.

I'm playing it through again and I think it's as good a shooter on the PC as you can get and has some very large outdoor areas. If this was any other game it would be hailed as a masterpiece.

Masterprice my ass.

Play Warhead and see how Crysis should be done.

If you think a few open areas alone are enough to make a game masterpiece, then you are FAR from being accurate.

I have played Warhead all the way through close to a dozen times and loved it.

You are just jumping on the hipster "let's hate Crysis 3" bandwagon. I'd be surprised if you have even played it to the end.

I think Scott wrote this for you:

I have absolutely no idea who Scott is and don't give a rats ass about it.

I still play Painkiller and the level design I have never seen such level design in a game in my lifetime. The levels are designed after Polish creations.

I just enjoy bunnyhopping all around PK maps while you are playing that shitty ass console game.

LOL I am so over you.

Ah... I thought I recognized the acerbic tone. You're the luddite that gave Josh a hard time about the AMD APUs.

Why don't you bugger off to some other site and take your uninformed, teenage vitriol with you.
