My System Specs

I am in love with this game. I haven't finished yet but I love it. So far only a few glitches and one crash that froze my system requiring a restart.

Well I beat Crysis and thought it was good but the ending sucked. There were some funny glitches like a gun floating in air shooting a wall. Or after a load a box just started to fly after I hit it. I did encounter some crashes though. All in all I think this game is better than COD4.

I'll wait for a patch before I even consider purchasing this game.

I am currently playing Crysis with the "Very High On The Cheap" hack for XP @1680x1050. Looks great but I think I need a few more frames, just can't decide what to turn off - LOL

So far the glitches I encounter are:
- guns getting stuck in walls after I go Rambo on some KPAs (drives me crazy cause they rattle until you pick it up or blow up the wall).
- some freezes that recover after 5-10 seconds so it's bearable (usually the 1st time I use my binocs)
- not so much a glitch but I seem to change weapons when switching suit powers using my mouse wheel button :P

Other than that it's a lot of fun. I really liked Farcry and this game plays a lot like Farcry so I'm happy. I love mixing up the stealth with the go Rambo. Currently on the mission where you have to take out 3 AA guns, I'm on the last one in some kind of refinery. Not too far into the game yet but me likes :)

I finished it this weekend and felt some places were to easy and some places were pretty difficult for being on normal.

Found WAY to many bugs in this game that I had to keep reloading save points and hope the bugs went away before I continued on like in the bay. The drop ship landed and my crew mates were standing there but I couldn't finish the level due to a helicopter so far up in the sky you could barely see it.

The ending was horrible... defeat the massive boss watch a 3 minute movie and "done".

The game really wasn't impressive to me as I found the novelty of shooting trees, choke holding guys and use strength wore off within the first couple of levels and things like auto-save when a tank is firing a missile at you a pain in the ass and a major hinderance more than anything.

People rave about the zero g level but really there wasn't anything impressive about it that made me go WOW! And things like the visor freezing or getting frozen by an alien was neat, but again when your in the middle of battle and die because of this and having to rely on a lot of quick saves it gets frustrating.

The game visually is nice and the the engine does some nice things, but I still believe the game was very over hyped.

Ok now I know about getting to a save point so when you restart there's a (tank/heli/RPG) about 0.5 seconds from your ass and you are getting nailed before the bloody screen loads. That sucks. Still progressing but those moments really suck. :P

Very impressed with this game. The only glitch I've come across is that the audio and video during the cutscenes sometimes get out of synch. But the way it's set up, they immediately re-synch as soon as another person starts talking.

Other than that, I found the game to be rock-solid, start to finish. Almost makes me feel like a minority, in fact. Really, my biggest gripe was the short time you get to play with the tank and VTOL.

I hated the tanks they were so slow and unresponsive but the VTOL was pretty fun.
