Any Crysis players out there?

I just played the demo, what a game!! The graphics, physics and gameplay are just amazing! Brings back memories of half life 2. I bought cod4 already, now I MUST get this game. If you haven't tried it already, the demo can be downloaded here: www.3dgamers.com. You will not be disappointed.

Re: Any Crysis players out there?

According to Crytek, these are the official minimum system requirements.
  • OS - Windows XP or Windows Vista

  • Processor - 2.8 GHz or faster (XP) or 3.2 GHz or faster* (Vista)

  • Memory - 1.0 GB RAM (XP) or 1.5 GB RAM (Vista)

  • Video Card -256 MB**

  • Hard Drive - 12GB

  • Sound Card - DirectX 9.0c compatible

  • Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz (3.2 GHz for Vista) or faster, Intel Core 2.0 GHz (2.2 GHz for Vista) or faster, AMD Athlon 2800+ (3200+ for Vista) or faster.

  • Supported chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (Radeon X800 Pro for Vista) or greater. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported. Integrated chipsets are not supported. Updates to your video and sound card drivers may be required.

I have a pretty decent rig and this game has brought it to it's knees on some parts of the game on 'High' settings. The 'Very High' settings were grayed out and I've read that you'll need DX10 to have access to it in Vista.

Re: Any Crysis players out there?

^^ I have both windows xp x64 and vista on 2 drives. I've installed the demo on both to see the difference and it was noticably slower on Vista (no surprise) so for those who might be planning to upgrade, stay with xp for a little while longer. Several other games were slower on vista as well. Also, the grahics wasn't any better under Vista as far as I can tell so directx 10 should be a non-issue.

I have a core 2 2.6 with 2gigs of ram and an nvidia 8800 gts. It plays smoothly on the 8800 on high but I'm sure on the 6800gt it would crawl. I wouldn't recommend anything under an 8800 series gpu to see all the eye candy. It is worth it though.

haha, yeah it's about 1.4 gigs or something. How fast is your connection? It took me about 25 minutes to download with cable.
