    Exclamation Crysis, what gives?!

    I mean now looking back over some old GDC vids I haven't seen one level in Crysis that looked as impressive as those jungle levels. Also those vids didn't look like CGI so what happened?

    Isn't Crysis a PC game?

    Well I assume because this forum is called Microsoft gaming rather than Xbox gaming and Crysis is normally played on a Microsoft Windows based system he posted in here.

    What happened was most people simply cant run it at the resolutions and details of the video's.

    Multinational games companies can usually afford a pretty powerful system to demo their product on

    Fair enough, I was just going by the Hexus description:

    I think Crysis on a good system is pretty close to the vids.

    I agree - it is for me anyway. It's a shame for XP you've got to tweak it to get the eye candy that's 'vista only' is all. I just do it via the shortcut/command line.
    I'm still utterly amazed by how good it looks even now.

    You do know you can manually change your files so on XP it starts up in Very High and runs in Very High
