    It's a beautiful looking game even on the lowest settings (which is curiously called High).

    MP has been a little problematic but noticed that it's 9v9 on quite a number of servers which is much improved over 6v6 so I'm pleasantly surprised. Keep losing my pre-order bonus so join a server as level 5 then when I vote I'm relegated. Haven't had a crack at a server that has already started though.

    Only tried 3 of the weapons. SCAR, Shotgun and some sort of SMG. Big differences between each weapon which is a big bonus for MP. Will have to wait to see how they balance against future unlocked weapons of each genre.

    Looks like a keeper.

    9 v 9 but the maps are more then big enough for them ... not wide maps but skyline has like 3 - 4 levels in vertical .. i kept getting killed from underneath .. is far better then the original Crysis for the maps and gameplay of MP

    A couple of times on SJ's server where it seemed to be restricted to lower numbers. Ended a 9v9 match then the next map that was loaded we had 6v6 and Badness complained that he was in the lobby but couldn't join the actual game. Though, it could have been a CD key issue.

    Confusing.

    I'm also wary that my registration seems to be a little off. I've point blank ripped a whole SCAR clip into someone then tried to melee them for them to whack me on the reload. :( Or I could just suck.

    Yeah there are a few bugs to be worked out. Not least of which is that I have no rcon tools and no documentation on in game console rcon. Using old crysis rcon is hit and miss...

    This issue with joining a server and just sitting in the lobby while others are in is a major problem. I hope the patch it soon.

    THE MAPS ARE INCREDIBLE. Love the look of this game and the feel

    Agree with purg rego is a bit strange atm. Maybe some server settings to be worked out to fix that yet.

    Haven't played any of the MP just yet, but the SP has been great so far.

    From the research I read (I googled it), it looks as though it does.

    I enjoy the levels being open, their were a few linear levels though, more than the first one, but in spite of that it was excellent. I miss being able to blow up shacks and trees though. I also missed being about to select maximum strength and just punching an enemy half way across the map.

    That is true. I was also mucking around in single player showing my room mate the game and you can charge up the melee hit in that, much like when you kick a car, so I'm going to see if that works in MP.

    pretty sure you can because i have been melee hit hard ... maybe it also has to do with unlocks etc..

    Got my limited edition today (actually yesterday, but just checked the mail). Will try it later, still sobering up here from a day at the park with friends.

    There alot of full aussies servers...

    If you type [AUS] into the server name field in the browser you will get all the games on net ones. If you type 3FL you will get them. There is a region filter in the browser but i note that only games on net and myself have set it up for Oceania. 3fl and maybe other aussie ones dont appear in a region filtered list.

    But theres plenty of 16/16 full servers out there in oz...
