I downloaded and installed it.
I guess tomorrow I will give it a go.

Its a total different game than what I like normally but I am really looking forward to try it.
I expect it to be a very nice game.

Not for the MP cause I dont like that kind of games in MP but it will be a great SP experience :)

Monk : all we need is for BIA to get their hands on the Crytec engine....:D:yes

If EA were interested in licensing the Crysis engine for "serious gaming" i doubt they would knock on BIA's door :D. BIS engine is still much more suitable for large world/scale simulation though.

I really enjoyed the Crysis demo (1 hour+ worth of gameplay on the first run), the level of destruction and interaction is great and playing stealthy is great fun once you get the hang of the suit.
The cloaking is well though because you cant abuse it, if you move around with it the energy runs out fast and if you shoot the cloaking goes off, so you have to sneak close to the baddies, throw them a crab or something (:D), activate the cloaking and wait for your preys... good fun, i really felt like a Predator hunting in the jungle.

The vegetation combined with the lighting is really impressive, over distance the tree shadows look like Arma's on very high but up close you get very detailed soft shadows. The grass and vegetation is ultra detailed, dense and doesnt kill frame rates, you can chop it all to bits, the leaves move as you pass thru, theres radiosity and its all silky smooth, a great achievement imo.

Im agreeing with foxhound, dont usually pay much atention to these games but im definetly getting this for 2 weeks worth of SP fun. Its a quality game, very well optimised.

I have played this also for an hour or so and like I expected..........I really like this game.
I agree with what Heatseeker says, the game is really great and plays very well.

I have to get used to the suit though, I dont think I used all its potential :)

I just went thru it again today, going back and forward to check everything out. On my first run i missed the traditional log pile trap that i could have used to kill 2 guys at once, i also missed some nice details and ways to get rid of the bad guys.
If you stealth your way thru you will often find the npc's doing... something.

One thing i didnt like was some objects (rocks) popping up in the open areas, with a not so pretty lod transition, i dont think that should happen at high settings.

Oh yeah, no sharks to be found in the demo..

edit:
I just opened the level in the editor and wow, lots of stuff there!!
I'll see if i can give myself more weapons, put more vehicles and units (animals, aliens), the editor looks sweet (real time beauty) :yay.

By the way there's 2 benchmark you can run and allso the sandbox you can all so install AND USE..

BUT yes it good for SP thats about it. BUT maybe it could be made better by making you own weapons and map \ mission. And if the Old school GR players took advantage of the Sandbox maybe it could make realistic game play.. Question is can you have COOP in MP ;)..

I just used the sandbox editor to give myself some extra firepower.
Since some of this content isnt used in the demo some sounds happen to be missing.

So far i tried all the AR atachements, the portable minigun, sniper rifle, rocket launcher, some weird blue shotgun thing and something that blew me (and everything) away, i think its called the pac gun or something and its like a man portable nuke :eek. My whole screen went orange and there were pieces of rock and trees flying all around :eek. I'll have to use it on the small villages, i strongly believe this weapon will tear them appart with a single shot.

Also tried a bunch of vehicles and the N. Korean atack helicopter is sweet. Found the sharks too but havent figured out how to make them work (a.i.) them great whites look terrific though.

Extra fire power not needed in that demo not even on the hardest difficalty in fact compleated it without them even firing a shot at me lol. The invisability you have is like GR and having a bush were ever you needed one lol.

This is the first level of the game so i guess its meant to be easy..
I wanted to try the other weapons/atachments aswell and ended up fighting against a bunch of alien scouts, there is one that will freeze your ass lolol, too bad the sharks arent working in the demo, i really wanted to check their a.i. behaviour and animation using the editor (place a bunch of soldiers in the water surrounded by deadly sharks).

The editor is really fun and yet a very powerfull/impressive tool, there is a MP map that you can open with it but i didnt like it and i dont think stock MP is going to be any good.

Oh.. and 4x AA in the jungle completely embarassed my GTX (set ingame, app controled in nvidia CP), 2x works smoothly but 4x is unplayable and im only at 1280 rez (really need a new monitor here).
I havent tried forcing AA from the CP and disabling it ingame yet.

Another thing.. for such a graphical beauty the vehicles sure look like crap, tanks, jeeps, etc.
