Windows 7: Crysis 2 ... anybody got it yet?

25 Mar 2011   #41

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

Well, for those in the fence of both... buying a new shinny DX11 Video Card and the game, perhaps this is your lucky day.

EVGA | Articles | EVGA GTX 560 Ti Maximum Graphics Edition

EVGA | Products

All that for under 300 bucks... very tempting indeed... even for me.

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

MP is pretty good once you get around the log in bullshit....found a workaround last night that worked for me....hard to find a game tho....and a lot of ppl on there are already lv some ppl got on early before it all went bust...I like the SP game tho..playing in normal first run but will definetly be replaying in whatever the hard modes is once I complete it.
Graphics are pretty good for DX9...should be stunning if and when we get this DX 11 patch.
Only problem still remaining for me is the bonus content..haven't been able to get it no matter what I try...
other than that issue the game is good...

Any idea on the length of the game - How long is the single player campaign?

And yeah, from what I've seen the graphics look pretty darn good for a DX9 game!

Perhaps by the time you're done with the Normal Level, the patch is out for DX11 and then you can do hardcore? ... doubt it

Anyways, I wanted to ask, how bad are the creatures? One of the things I dislike about the game were the creatures, hated them in Far Cry, Crysis and Warhead... not that it deterred me from playing it though but I am just saying, I could have had a lot more fun w/o them... they scared me half to death on certain spots

Windows 7 Premium 64 bit

I played the multiplayer Demo for PC it ran very well on my system with settings at high and my gpu is not that great is only a gt 320.

You might be able to run the game with the gt 220 card but would probably have to set the video settings low not sure... who knows it might be fine min card is the 8800gt.

Here are system requirements from EA site:

Our PC fans will be excited to know that we’ve finalized the PC minimum system requirements for Crysis 2. Check them out below! PC Minimum System Requirements
Operating system: Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, with the latest Service Pack
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo at 2Ghz, or AMD Athlon 64 x2 2Ghz, or better
Memory: 2Gb (Vista requires 3Gb)
Hard disk space: 9Gb
Video: NVidia 8800GT with 512Mb RAM, ATI 3850HD with 512Mb RAM, or better
Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
DirectX®: 9.0c
Controller support? Microsoft Xbox360 Controller for Windows
Any special multiplayer requirements? Internet Connection Required
Internet connection also required for a one-time authorization when the game installed/first run.

Did EA patch the game to run on Directx 11 yet.

As far as not being able to wander around as much... I liked wandering around some in the first crysis... I also like the single player mode the best to start with till I know game some then go multiplayer...

I will likely get the full game release next Thursday when I get payed.

Creatures..havent seen too many have a sight thing called nano vision (heat vision) you can use when they stealth?
So far no frights...shotgun kills em dead..3 shots or so at close range..I got no idea how far I'm into the SP so it may get a little more tense further need the aliens tho cos you get material from each corpse you then use to boost the suit...more armor e.g.

The DX 11 patch isn't out yet..I think they would be too busy trying to sort out the login issues..key issues..redeem code issues...dunno why that's taking so long...Blizzard sure a shit would'nt hire them.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I am taking my time and I am probably 5 hours into the SP. I ran into a couple of sections that were a pain in the ass and had to do them multiple times because I kept dying over and over.
I still can't log into the game for some reason.

windows 7

Yer its super brilliant, played almost to ending i think, Not as open as crysis, but not a corridor shooter either, somthing inbetween, use ur suit, and u will have lots of tactical possiblilities,
Not as Surprisingly OvertheTop Graphics as crysis, but it will probaly help when they implement DX11 in a patch one day, (why da hell, it shipped witout DX11 support, ive no ideer, its just stupid)
Gameplay is still uber nice though, same as crysis almost,
Smooth movement/Aiming, not shitty "realistic" as BFBC2 - hate the restrictions they implement in that game,..
Overall u will be greatly entertained, if u liked crysis,
Have a nice day

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

So I am watching a friend play it (I'm still on this side of the fence waiting for the alleged big patch... that's code for "I'm a Cheap Bastid" ), the music tells me that something's about to happen (firefight or big scene), when I hear something like "Tactical Options Available" then a text on the screen follows "< Recommend Tac Assesment >" and my friend looks at me dumbfounded, like asking me... OK, now what... what key am I supposed to press or how do I proceed from here? To which I tell him... what the hell do I know, I'm just a passenger here!

So, do any of you guys know what key is he supposed to press?

Also, I remember something now that I used to do in Crysis... I remember double tapping some keys and some of the nano suits powers will come alive. Something like tapping C for crouching but Double tapping C would give me Cloak mode... or tapping Space to Jump but double tapping Space would give the Super Jump Powers, etc, etc, etc... does this also work in this game?

Something that detracts me a little bit about this game now (consolize if you will) is the fact that you can now buy your powers, or have to gain points to do so,etc... it sure shows that they are catering to the kids/youngins... I'll still will play and enjoy the game, I am sure... just saying

I've had crysis for awhile, since before windows 7. Today I decided I wanted to play it so I installed it and updated it to 1.2.1. Every so often while I play the game just crashes, also crashes when I try to change graphical settings. In the event viewer it says Faulting application name:...
