Hmmmm...... you're the first person I've heard of complain about DX9's graphics in the game. Even DX11 fans thinks the game looks great, including me (though I don't have the game yet). Wow

Don't get me wrong, the game itself looks amazing. It are those small things that ruin the overall graphics experience.

'Know what you mean - it looks great, but there's a lack of "finish" to it..

guess we'll have to wait to see what enhancements Crytek can add with the upgrade to DX11

Personally for a DX9 game I think it looks amazing and to be honest (for me at least) if the game is great to play then graphics aren't so important. Now admittedly Crytek had some big boots to fill after the original Crysis games but hopefully the DX11 patch will fill those boots quite adequately..
Like above I use wasdies configerator which gives me a few options but until those cvars are unlocked proper then that's as good as it's going to get. The POM option is also drastically missing and I only hope it becomes enabled again in future patches.

+ 1 on what sygnus1 said.

Perhaps you need to tweak your video card? Then again, Perhaps using a native DX11 card is not a good thing when using a DX9 game? I doubt it but it could happen.

Much like watching a regular TV program on a true 3D TV... it looks like crap

Maybe I'm jaded - but I don't think that the DX11 patch is going to live up to everyone's expectations.

Sure, it will add some pretties - but I still believe it's going to fall short.

I'll be happy to be proved wrong though

Uh I hope this isn't true or else all my DX9 games running on my DX11 card would look like crap..... which is quite the opposite

I don't know.... the DX11 texture pack certainly made a difference in Dragon Age 2. Now I'm certainly not saying DA 2's graphics compare to Crysis 2, I'm simply stating the update made the game look better.

Well see what the reviews say when/if the patch is released.

Thanks, but I'm already using that. It surely helps. Although, it causes some weird graphic glitches at times, like randomly spawning items, disappearing objects and other stuff. (Yes, I've tried changing the settings)

@AstaLaVista: I see what you mean, but that is definetely not the problem. The game looks great in native 1080p with extreme settings, but since the game runs in (outdated) DX9, some things can't look as good as they should. (water, ground and rocks are the most significantly limited to DX9 quality).

Never mind the DX11 patch - I just want to be able to switch the damn suit voice off.

I'm sick to death of hearing cloak engaged/nanovision enabled etc all the damn time
