    Finished off the Single Player today and DAMN! Crysis absolutely rocks. I take back anything bad I ever said about it lol
    The Alien cave missions were like being another world, I would often get killed from being so distracted by the graphics. I've seen big budget movie special effects that didnt stand up to this, CryEngine2 is going to pave to way for some amazing games over the next few years. As someone mentioned in another thread: STALKER remade with this engine would be kickass.

    The ice levels really put extra strain on my system but for some reason Crysis continues to be playable evan at ~15-20fps when other games would be useless.

    Strange though that many parts of the game played better with DX10 than DX9, in particular the final fight (wont give anything away) sunk into single digit fps when on DX9 but was up at 30-40 on DX10. very strange.

    The non-linear aspect of the map design is such a breath of fresh air, beaing able to bypass areas, or take alternative routes, flank the enemy, or just take a stroll (lol) make the immersion that much better. I just can't fathom going back and playing other "urban" or "blown-up-city" setting games, being able to run through the forest /jungle in the wide outdoors is about the best thing to happen to gaming in recent years.

    I created a godmode config so I could browse around the maps, Ive included the settings below if anyone else wants to stroll through the jungles without getting shot at. The enemy will ignore you, you run at 3x the speed, never run out of energy, and can carry all weapons and unlimited ammo. As I said this is for exploring. To use, make a backup of ...Crysis\Game\Config\diff_easy.cfg
    then replace the settings with the ones below.

    Code:
    -- EASY
    
    -- AI Detection speed
    ai_SOMSpeedRelaxed = 1.2
    ai_SOMSpeedCombat = 0.3
    
    -- Alive time
    ai_RODAliveTime = 5.0
    ai_RODMoveInc = 1.3
    ai_RODStanceInc = 1.0
    ai_RODDirInc = 1.0
    ai_RODAmbientFireInc = 2.0
    ai_RODKillZoneInc = -2.0
    
    -- AI fire reaction time
    ai_RODReactionTime = 0.2
    ai_RODReactionDistInc = 0.1
    ai_RODReactionLeanInc = 0.2
    ai_RODReactionDirInc = 1.0
    
    -- Cover fire time modifier (cover fire time specified in weapon)
    ai_RODCoverFireTimeMod = 1.0
    
    -- ROD ranges - percents of attackRange AI property
    ai_RODKillRangeMod = 0.2
    ai_RODCombatRangeMod = 0.6
    
    -- Ambient fire, enemies not in the quota cannot hit the player.
    ai_AmbientFireUpdateInterval = 0.5
    ai_AmbientFireQuota = 2
    
    -- Low health effect duration and health threshold
    ai_RODLowHealthMercyTime = 2.5
    g_playerLowHealthThreshold = 40
    
    -- AI voice readability
    ai_UseAlternativeReadability = 0
    
    -- Player Health/Energy/Suit
    g_suitCloakEnergyDrainAdjuster = 0
    g_suitRecoilEnergyCost = 7
    g_suitSpeedEnergyConsumption = 0
    g_suitSpeedMult = 3
    
    g_suitArmorHealthValue = 100.0
    g_playerSuitArmorModeHealthRegenTime = 8
    g_playerSuitArmorModeHealthRegenTimeMoving = 10
    g_playerSuitHealthRegenTime = 12
    g_playerSuitHealthRegenTimeMoving = 15
    g_playerSuitHealthRegenDelay = 2.51
    
    g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeTimeArmor = 6
    g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeTimeArmorMoving = 7
    g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeTime = 8
    g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeDelay = 1.0
    
    g_playerHealthValue = 200.0
    
    g_difficultyLevel = 1
    v_driverControlledMountedGuns = 1
    
    ai_IgnorePlayer = 1
    g_godmode = 1
    i_noweaponlimit = 1
    i_unlimitedammo = 1
    Think I might try out some map making, see what I can make with this amaing game

    I'm loving it too - I almost hate to play it because I don't want it to end. I just ordered another 2 gigs of ram, which would put me at 4 gig total, how much does Vista see? 3 or 4 gigs?

    Anyway, I bought a new 6850 Duo Core computer for this game and I'm loving it but I only got 2 gigs of ram (DDR2 Performance SDRAM at 800MHz), I hope I see a performance increase in going to 4 gigs since Vista is eating anywhere from 20-30% of my ram on its bloaty OS.

    Vista will only see 4gb if you are running the 64bit edition. otherwise it will cap at 3-3.5gb

    DL the demo Cfod, it's well worth it and will give you an idea of performance.

    Good lord this game is pretty! I spent hours just wandering around shooting KPA having a great time. My settings are only on medium, no AA, 1280x1024, 64bit & Dx10 (fps 30-60 depending on gameplay) but the walk up to the caves along the creek was gobsmaking... found a turtle too :)
    Butterflies, feathers floating in the air when you toss a chook, splashes of water on my mask under the waterfall etc etc.

    (Config: Q6600, 4GbRAM 800 4-4-12, 8800gts 320mb, Vista HP 64bit, nvidia 163.75)

    What a really, really great game.
    The story line isn't as good as, say, HL2 or STALKER, (haven't played bioshock) but the graphics and challenges are terrific.

    Well worth the money

    Spoilers in white:

    Loved every map. Inside the alien mountain was great, a little confusing but eye candy was good. Vine, I agree with your special effects in movies comparison but I think trekking up the mountain side before entering the caves, the banana plantation, the tank battle were my favourites. It's also a game where I really enjoyed the cut scenes. I reckon Prophet has been taken over by the bad guys... the scene in the armoury on-board the aircraft carrier had some telling dialogue...

    Well ... I just haven't been able to get myself in to it yet. It annoys me that I can't put the graphics up very high on my machine so I've been doing lots of tweaking to try and get playable framerates ...

    I still haven't completed the portion of the game from the demo ...
