I want a Crysis game like Far Cry 3. A big, open world, preferably somewhere with a lot of jungle, and an overwhelming presence of bad dudes to toy with in the Nanosuit. Tack on a minimalist story if you must, but just let me kill dudes like a human Predator.

i950 with EVGA GTX 580 Superclock?

fxaa, high texture, high spec. 40-50fps smooth.

This is me coming from a gtx 480 clocked to hell.

How would this game play on an old Core2 quad 2.5 gighz with a 650 GTX?

I'm able to play it just fine, it's not on the highest settings, but it still looks beautiful. My system is a Core2 Duo e6600 2.4Ghz, a GTX 660 (had to upgrade from a GTX 8800 for dx 11) and its on a intel 975 board. It bogs down in the parts with the high grass, but for the most part its pretty smooth, though the cpu is pegged at 100% pretty much the whole time.

Nice!

$60 for a 5hr campaign? FAIL

Anyway my i7 3770/680 gets roughly 50FPS at 1920x1200 everything set to High and TXAA at medium.

Textures in this needs a bump and the physics are very so-so.

maybe the reason crysis 2 and 3 AI is bad is because they had to dumb it down to run on consoles too.

I have enjoyed all of the Crysis games, even Crysis 3 I thought was ok. Unfortunately I wont be purchasing this due to Origin. I sucked it up for Crysis 2 and picked it up on origin only to be enraged when it finally hit steam 2 months later. I have no problem shelling out $$ for games I want.. but being forced to use a sub par (read: sh*tty) service especially when all of my other games are on a great service means you lose my $$ for now EA... I will pay for it when it goes on steam.

Man, I want to see how my good ol' GTX 460 stands up to this.
It's been sitting in a box up in the closet for sometime now after being replaced for a 680.
My 460 is the one that brought me through Crysis War Head to Crysis 2 and years of great game play.

You should try it, for science! I'm honestly curious about the results you'd get. Both cards use the same driver package, so you should be able to just shut down, install the new card, and turn your PC back on. (Though sometimes Windows will still do a hardware discovery and ask for a restart anyway.)

Yeah, that super-linear gameplay ruined it for me.

"ways to kill people dead" REALLY???

Nvidia scaling is excellent. I have 2 superclocked GTX 680s in SLI and utilization is in the high 90s for both cards when in the the middle of the action. This is with all settings maxed of course.

I like this game a lot. I don't to MP at all and I find the single player missions quite satisfying. A worthy sequel in my mind.

im running a 7950xfire setup and it still does not scale very well. gpu load stays around 50% sometimes a little less. I believe it to be the drivers, but i guess ill find out when 13.2 goes official. Overall though im not too happy with xfire scaling in any games, the only time i truly see a difference like i believe i should see is when running benchmarks such as unigine valley, heaven etc.

If a 660 Ti can get 30-40 fps, I wonder what my 6870 Xfire setup would get.

In the era of multicore processors, where AI could have several threads devoted to it, we still have AI in major titles that is dumber than rocks. We gamers were lambasting such AI even back in the comparative dark ages of games like Project IGI (I remember the MPC reviews lol)& it is still here today. Sad face.

I think that this is a pretty fair assessment. By the way, the best way to be good at Crysis 3 multiplayer is to yank the nearest pole from out of the ground and start swinging away.

I was never as wowed by Crysis as much as the community was. The first game was quite good, but after finishing the second I just felt meh about it. I'm not even going to bother with this one unless it ends up really dirt cheap.

It will, later this year.
