i would like to hear opinions on the original dx9 launched version and not about the revamped and modded dx11ones b'coz that causes controversies...
With or without mods, Crysis2 is better graphically. The lighting is vastly improved in Crysis2, and that's huge. This is evidenced by a lot of the projects at CryDev that were ported from CryEngine2 into CryEngine3. The difference is quite stark.
There is no controversy about modded Crysis2, it looks fantastic.
