I tried out the demo last night. On my okay computer, it ran decently on the low setting, okay on medium and not too good on high - though it looked great (as long as I didn't move), but the very high options were not even selectable. I'm going to go buy some more RAM today and see if that helps things out - especially because I was getting a fair amount of texture pop-in, and then I'm hopefully going to pick up the game.
I spent more time fiddling with the settings than playing the demo, but what I saw I liked. The opening reminded me a bit of MGS3 - parachuting into a jungle - the guys advance tech suit, though thankfully the opening cut scenes weren't thirty minutes long, followed by me drowning in a swamp. I liked that there seemed to be a lot of options of how you can move through the game - it seems like it's going to be very re-playable. For instance, after getting bogged down a couple times in an enemy encampment up the coast to the right of the communication tower, I was able to get past that section, just by swimming around 'em - avoiding it completely.
Has anybody on here tried out the multiplayer?
Since I never played it, should I pick up Far Cry too - or are the games too similar? My brother said he couldn't get into Crysis as much as he thought he would because it reminded him too much of Far Cry...

i've only played the deathmatch mode and it sucked. destroying a whole building by throwing a dumpster at it again and again and again is good though.
― adam, Friday, 21 December 2007 16:55 (eleven years ago) link
I tried deathmatch last night when I was more than half asleep - I think I died over twenty times in a row without getting a single kill! It seemed pretty much like every other simple, old-school pick-up deathmatch?

This tweak guide is pretty useful / interesting...
But after fooling and fooling with this, I now realize I can only play the game on low :( (but even there the frame rate is weird, starting at around 70fps, but in heavy combat dropping down to 20 fps)
Still, it looks okay on low, but considering the game's main attractions are supposed to be the graphics and physics, I feel like I'm missing out. May put the game aside until I can get a better computer or until they come out with a more optimized patch.

Yeah, I've just shelved it for the time being. I'll come back to it when somebody releases a sub-£200 graphics card which can cope with it in full detail/resolution with a 45fps minimum. Course, this might mean waiting another 18 months.

Anybody picking up the new one? Supposedly optimized somewhat. I'll probably pick it up via steam - maybe download overnight (15 gig!). Feel weird, since I never finished the first game - hard drive died when I was around halfway through and I just never felt like repeating so much of the game yet

Have played 1/3 or 1/2 way through Crysis Warhead so far. I'm liking it pretty well (I think partially because I haven't played a single player FPS in quite a while). Just finished the first big battle with a giant alien and it was pretty awesome (tough too). A really good, visually impressive "boss" fight. The open way some of the battle scenarios unfold throughout the game (same as in the first) is what impresses me the most - they just feel much more organic than these kinds of things usually feel. I also like the way the game lets you use stealth, if you so desire (and I usually do).
My complaints would be, I don't think Warhead actually runs any better than the first game (on my current set-up), despite what was promised. I had a few crash problems early on, but updating my graphic card drivers (doh) seemed to take care of it. But the game crashed again last night as I was trying to save and quit (hopefully it'll be okay when I return to it). And occasionally things will kind of hitch up, even playing on medium. Considering I can play every other game I know of on high or very high settings with basically no problems, the absurd demands of Crysis are obviously still slightly disappointing.

Huh. His candour is very admirable and all, but he's just talked me out of buying his game.
Why is this far cry 2 anyway? Does it have anything at all in common with far cry 1, beyond being an fps? Plot? Gameplay? Atmosphere? Developer? As far as I can tell they're all completely different. It's like they bought the Toy Story licence, made Apocalypse Now, and then called it Toy Story 3.
― JimD, Tuesday, 28 October 2008 08:49 (eleven years ago) link
Yeah, I don't think there's any connection between the games, other than they are both open world first person shooters. Don't really understand why the kept the name, except to justify purchasing it in the first place maybe. Those comments sure do make it sound like they were kind of forced to rush out Far Cry 2 a bit sooner than some people working on it would have liked. I'm playing it now though, and I'm kind of enjoying it (only 12% complete so far however, so a lot could change). I agree it has problems, but what sandbox game doesn't? On the plus side, the world they've created is a pretty impressive environment to wander around in. You can go by foot through miles and miles of bush, ride various cars, and take boats around. I like the pacing. It seems a little slower, a little more casual. So far, the various mission scenarios, while perhaps a bit too similiar, are also fun to play out, to fight your way through (actually like playing Crysis w/o the super suit, where you have a lot of options on how you want to resolve each situation). I've done a bit of multiplayer too, and really like the maps I've played on. The multiplayer matches feel solid, but don't really stand out of the pack enough. It's not quite enough to present solid multiplayer, when excellent choices already exist. The game just feels like a B though. In a season that seems to be packed with A games, I could understand why people would skip it for now.
― Jeff LeVine, Tuesday, 28 October 2008 15:23 (eleven years ago) link
been playing Far Cry 1 the past coupla weeks - made the mistake of starting the game on realistic mode, which it turns out is hellishly difficult and unrealistic. it's one shot, one kill (regarding your dude, anyway - it takes like a full clip to take down any bad guy) and you have to play the entire game in stealth mode (ie. in the prone position, crawling through shrubs), to have any chance of survival. checkpoint system + lack of quicksaves make for the most infuriating gaming experience in a long ass time, i had to replay big chunks of the game dozens of times. finally made it to the volcano level, and at this point i've lost my will to even complete the game. utter dogshit. the cinematics are so awful that i feel like i'm being mocked for even playing this shit. halo on legendary mode is tough, but still very beatable; this is just a punishing grind of a game.
found out halfway through game that you can actually quicksave by opening the ui console and typing /save_game <insert name here> but it feels like cheating; btw, FUCK THIS GAME for making me feel like i'm cheating by wanting to SAVE THE FUCKING GAME
still, it has some things going for it, and i can sorta envision myself enjoying it in an alternate universe where i'm smart enough to play it on a more reasonable difficulty.
Huh. His candour is very admirable and all, but he's just talked me out of buying his game.
why's that? reading his comments actually raised my interest level in FC2.

Oh, and yeah...Clint's comments seem to agree with most of the criticisms, it's like he's saying "yeah, in lots of ways this isn't the game we wanted it to be, or claimed it was". eg
Some fairly serious weaknesses on the story telling side to help make the player feel that these guys are saying 'if you go do this mission, we'll help you find the Jackal' - it's just not there... and yeah, you're right, we could have given a few more clues and sprinkled the actual main story threads through the bulk of the faction missions better for sure...
Etc etc. Dunno, just made me think, with so many other things to play this Christmas, that I was happy to skip FC2.
― JimD, Saturday, 15 November 2008 10:18 (eleven years ago) link
part of me suspects that many game producers would have similar things to say about their completed projects, eg. we had a lot of ideas but only had the time & technology to perfect x, y and z - what it really drove home for me is how difficult ambitious game design is. like, it's one thing to look at current games and complain about the lack of imagination in mainstream gaming, but i think for a while i sorta took it for granted that the process was just 'have ideas => use computer magic to implement => here's ur game!!!!'

Giving Crysis a go. Yeah it's pretty too although I probably would have been more overwhelmed if I'd played it when it came out (impossible I know) Gonna try ramping up the settings tonight.
I thought at first it was really hard (or I was really shit) until I realised I should be using stealth a hell of a lot more, and not trying to kill every single enemy. Still a bit frustrated at the ridiculous amount of damage that both I and the enemies can take - it leads to all round carelessness. Wouldn't mind if the bullets were a tad more hurtful.

ok, thanks to the cult thread and reading some interesting stuff linked there, got far cry 2 and played it for the first time last night - not very far in, but so far pretty good? surprised by the quality of the AI so far, low level grunts are not stupid and don't like getting shot. Realism that dudes don't just get up after eating a grenade is refreshing after years of FPS POWAR ARMOR. Also there is def the indication right off that you are prob in for a long haul - pacing is slow but not boring (knock on wood i suppose). Anybody else played/playing this?
Also confused by people complaining about enemies respawning at the roadblock checkpoints - thinking that well yeah dude, third world warzone full of disposable soldiers = pretty much constant supply of cannon fodder.

hey wow this game makes great use of the day/night cycle - it is fucking HARD to drive in the dark - also seems like the AI takes it into account, so if you do a raid at night you can get the drop on dudes a little easier. of course if you pop out into a lighted area, they bear down on you pretty much immediately, more so than during the day.
this game am smart.

so it looks like ppl knock this game because of the respawning checkpoints. i can see that. i think the problem really is that there are NO non-hostile people on the map. there aren't any civilians! i guess it would really not do to allow the player to gun down african women at a market GTA style, but the fact that you never just drive or walk past anyone w/o incident makes the game feel underpopulated, paradoxically

― adam, Monday, 8 December 2014 01:25 (five years ago) link
i'm working my way through it at the moment on ps4. i loved far cry 3 and i feel like i should be enjoying this more than i am so far. i've put about eight hours into it, mostly just roaming around unlocking bell towers and raiding enemy compounds.
it's largely been avoiding the horrible story / characterisation pitfalls that annoyed me in fc3, thankfully, but i wish the gameplay had been updated a bit more along with the setting - it's very similar mechanically to fc3 which is making it a bit harder to love. helicopter / wingsuit / elephant adventures have undeniably been a lot of fun, though.
i think i might be getting tired of ubisoft's schtick - having also played watch_dogs and ac: black flag this year i've overdosed a bit on map unlocking, secret item uncovering, base-raiding and all the other stuff which is shared between their games.
― bizarro gazzara, Monday, 8 December 2014 11:14 (five years ago) link
i never gelled with watch dogs and got bored halfway through black flag too. can kinda see this happening with fc4 but every time i get a bit weary they throw a new thing in that gets me going - the mountain missions are great for that. not quite as awesome as fc3 (and definitely not as much as blood dragon) but i'd say it's one of the better games from a pretty humdrum year
― NI, Monday, 8 December 2014 18:10 (five years ago) link
not really interested because it seems so similar to FC3, which upon completing gave me a sense of 'huh, kinda wish i hadn't spent so many hours on that'.
i do love doing stealth takeovers of the bases, that's the only part that's tempting.
― festival culture (Jordan), Monday, 8 December 2014 18:15 (five years ago) link
I was playing FC3 last night and I had a falling-through-the-world glitch happen. I was swimming to some treasure and when I looked up there was no land but I could see trees, they were just hovering in mid-air. Then the land started taking shape, but it looked like it was all transparent. I was stuck under the water, and my character was gasping for air, and it was really horrifying. I tried to get away but was still stuck, though with the land being all transparent, it was like I was a ghost or something. Eventually I feel through the ground and the sky appeared below me and the entire world was upside down. By this time the game was stuttering so I had to shut it off.
The stealth takeovers of bases is definitely the best part of these games. Too bad that once you do take over all the bases, there are no more enemies to fight, so you're just running around an open world with this massive arsenal and all your combat upgrades and have no one to fight.

a friend has Far Cry 5 and i played for a few hours on his PS4. it's pretty good but def more of the same. he is really into stealth takedowns of the bases which is something the series has grown to excel at.
i ended up buying Far Cry 2 on steam after hearing about it for years. it's kind of janky (had to bring all settings to medium in order to stop the CTD) but very atmospheric and a lot of fun. also a very different kind of game - no sneak melee kills and bullets can pierce most walls (being hastily constructed shacks in war-torn Africa), meaning you can't rely on cover for too long, you have to keep moving, which is pretty cool. the map is now one of my favorites of all time.

fc5 has a mechanic where u do stuff in a region to fill up a meter, when the meter fills up you can do the boss fight mission. rather, you HAVE to do the boss fight mission as the game pulls you out of whatever amusing open world shit you were doing and throws you into a long corridor shooter mission that you can't get out of. i haven't booted the game up since it did that and i probably never will tbh.

there are not as many wild animals as the new games however, which kinda sucks cos you are in Africa and there could be some cool stuff. also i have lost so many missions due to enemies just pulling up in a car and running me over. it sucks, you can be 10 mins into a mission and a car comes out of nowhere and insta kills you back to the last save.

the diamond hunting is a lot of fun. all over the map there are suitcases with diamonds (upgrade material) to find. often they are hidden in an out of the reach place you have to jump to or something and it turns into a little side puzzle where you are figuring out where to go and how to get to them.

in the better moments it definitely captures that Chuck Norris 80s movies, sliding under bullets while you single-handedly waste an army of mercs in the jungle.

I've only watched someone else play it but whats with the endless, repeating "run thru the house shooting ghost people" hallucination trial? Why make the player do that over and over?
