Crytek may not be able to make games but the make pretty scenery even if it does take to much power to show it off.
I don't think thats fair. Warhead (though short) is a good game and Farcry kept me entertained for bloody ages. I downloaded an alternative optimised config (instead of using one of the presets) and Warhead now runs great (and still looks great too).
But I will think twice about buying any future Crytek games, as EA are a bunch of spyware installing c****
