I have just started playing and the game looks fantastic in so many ways, it's just impossible to run with all settings maximized, even tuned halfway down it still lags a lot. Maybe my machine is no monster rig but it should do fine.


when the beta dropped i downloaded it and put all the settings at max. it brought my little quad core machine to its knees, lol. it was so bad i had to do a task manager exit because i couldn't move or get back to the main menu. are most of you playing the pc or console version?

I think it'd be a waste to play something like this on console.

Yeah I did play it.

Gameplay wise: I found it far more liniar, which was a bad thing since I loved the freedom of movement in the first game. I blame it mostly due to the setting which is a relatively normal city. That limits the way levels can be designed.

Story & Crysis universe wise: I did not care about the player character of Alcatraz. This is mostly due to the fact that he never says or does anything that shows any sense of personality. He is pretty much not a character in that regard.
The enemy character Lockhart is also pretty much cookie-cutter villain.

Apart from that, I enjoyed it. It had some small nice throwbacks to first game dialogwise, and gives some pretty important information towards the end of the game. (Info that explains several things from the first game)
