So when I built my PC last summer, people were going on about how it needs to be Crysis ready (I wish I had some of those posts still around). With a week into the launch, where is all the news? It seems like Crysis is silently being swept under the carpet. This must have been the longest buildup to any game I know, and yet this week, it's been dead quiet.

Your thoughts? WTF happened?

Disclaimer: I haven't bought the game yet because I'm going to wait until I have better hardware. :bounce:

It's a good game with decently fun gameplay. No game of the year imo (That goes to COD4 - Both Single & Multiplay), but still 7-8/10. Multiplayer and graphics optimization still needs some work though. People are also retarded complaining about poor performance on 7x, and below, series card when they knew what the required specs were well before release (even if they didn't officially release them). You don't go to a race track with a Ford Taurus and expect to beat a tuned super-car and then complain to your car manufacturer that you lost, do you? No, and for obvious reasons.

Moving right along...
I think the most over-hyped piece of junk game was Hellgate: London. People were going on-and-on about how it would be the next D2 (topped the preorder chart at gamestop for a while) and they basically released the beta with 2 more acts in it. LAME!!!! It still had all the bugs & memory leaks from beta as well. My $0.02.

I think it is a little overhyped, but not much. The visuals live up to their expectations, and thats only playing the game at medium settings at 1024x768. Cant wait unitll OCUK finally sent me an 8800GT replacement.

The gameplay is not perfrect but its definatly fun and quite realistic. It seems the sandbox nature of the games is also one of the bad things about it too, as the situations can be random and fustrating. A.I is good in general, but they need to respond to your presence more quickly at close quarters. They spot you just as easily at 200m as they do at 2m.

Anyway I thought it rocked, 66.6% due to the graphics, 33.3% for the gameplay. Theres also something very Halo about it to, and also Far Cry and COD.

I think it is a good game. As stated, it is not Game of the Year or anything. They might get best looking game of the year or something along the lines of the Graphics of the game. Game play is very important though.

I like the single player play more then FarCry. Everyone complains about the enemy AI and it is bad but I'm playing on easy. I am assuming the other 3 levels get more intelligent.

It is a graphics hog though. My x1900xtx at 1680x1050 can only play it on medium at 30fps. It still looks good. But then I remember Farcry with the latest patch with HDR on runs at 60FPS and looks very nice. So I am assuming that in a year or so when more powerful Graphics cards are out it will look incredible. THAT IS of course if it lasts that long on my shelf. We still play farcry at our lans for a few reasons. It runs on anything and its a really fun multiplayer game.

I played the multiplayer ni Crysis and found it to be ok but not as good as farcry. The Kill Everything That Moves games are fine. The guns are cool. But hitting "F" to pick up a gun is a pain when you are running for your life. I wish you could just run over a gun to pick up.

I like the new Power Struggle multiplayer games, but have a few tiffs about it. You have a vast array of items to purchase which is cool. But to hit "P" and figure out what to purchase and evrerything takes to much time when there are people running everywhere. I found myself dead a few times before I was even able to pick what I want.

If you took the best of Farcry and the best of Crysis you would have the best FPS game EVER.

Most overhyped game ever? Not a chance, that goes to Half-Life 2.
November 20, 2007 3:51:18 PM

I did not buy it because the poor performance of current hardware.
November 20, 2007 3:55:31 PM

Heyyou27, what is that in your avatar?
November 20, 2007 4:13:02 PM

Most over-hyped was Halo 2 IMO...

I enjoy Crysis... it combines a lot of things I liked about other titles. It's like Far Cry (overall fps/gameplay) meets Splinter Cell (you can go in guns blazing or sneak around) meets GTA (interactive environments).

I think some of the "over-hyped" talk stems from other great titles being released... BioShock and COD4 are probably the best, and most original, FPSs ever, so it's taking some of the attention away from Crysis.

I vote Halo 3... even though it's not a PC game.
November 20, 2007 4:21:14 PM

I don't think it was overhyped at all, I bought it the morning it came out and I would give it a 8/10. As others have said it's not the game of the year but it's close. There are a couple of issues with it but they are minor and for those who have 2 year old hardware and complain about not being able to play on high their idiots. I would rather have the software industry pushing hardware manufacturers and I think Crytek did a great job scaling the game for all different performance levels.
November 20, 2007 4:52:46 PM

Wait wait, over-hyped? I asked most ppl at school and they never even heard of it!

The reason you may think its over-hyped, is because you read into it too much, ALL games are usually over-hyped if you want them to be awesome.

November 20, 2007 4:53:22 PM

Amen on Hafe-life 2 being over-hyped and overrated. Its not a bad game, but its not one of the best games ever. I just found it really boring, with the whole game basically one big scripted sequence. Yeah the graphics and physics are nice, and the controls work well, but its so dull.

People who say Crysis is poorly optimised are mad. What with the draw distance, the water, the complex shader effects, the amount of detail in the jungles and grass, the textures, the character models, I sometimes cant believe my 7600GT can actually output such detail (abeit at 15-20 fps in most places).
November 20, 2007 4:55:38 PM

I loved it, all the way to the end at the classic rpg style boss fight. Multiplayer is good, but not great, i'm going to wait for less noobs as opposed to new hardware lol. (too easy, part of the same reason I stopped playing bf2142 after 2 months other than it being boring.)

my GOTY is bioshock, never been a CoD fan (tried them all, but it doesn't feel much different from playing MoH or Day of Defeat).

Most overhyped has got to be Hellgate, as regeist said, I gotta say, I only tried the demo, but it was just boring, no way in hell like diablo, guild wars is way better imho (some of the big cheeses from blizzard made arenanet a few years back).
November 20, 2007 5:09:15 PM

Seems like a disappointing year for games. And when I say disappointing - meaning they are good to ok, but they didnt live up to expectations. I havent tried COD4. I thought COD3 was awesome but lost steam in the end (became repetitive), and was too short!

I really need something stimulating to take me away from WoW, so please developers, bring it on! I welcome Spore, or anything else that requires intelligence to play.

Anyone got any suggestions for game for a Christmas present - from me to me? I really want to get something good to get me through the first 2 months of winter.

Sorry Crysis it didnt work out. People are raving about Assasin's Creed, but I dont wanna go back to a console. I love my PC but Im starting to hate the cost of upkeep, and lack of good games. Every few years or so there is a ground breaker (brand new genre), but I'm getting impatient waiting for it!!!!

COD4. Game.Of.The.Year. If you find it repetitive, I don't see how you play WoW (World of Grindcraft - Get that faction up!) I'm going to pick up Bioshock soon, I hear that game is awesome as well, may want to try it out. Orange Box is also ok, but I beat the entire Ep.2 + Portal in a little less than 2 nights of gaming... so it may be too short for some people. (Portal is top-notch unique though, and the ending is just icing on the cake. :D 
November 20, 2007 5:21:33 PM

I'm beginning to think that Crysis is a complete bomb out. Obviously too early to tell for sure, but I started researching it, and check out this post:

http://www.gamespot.com/pages/forums/show_msgs.php?topi...;title;0#

Im sure if you do a keyword search on THG for the word "Crysis", for the last 12 months, it will come up as being the most mentioned, more than "AMD sucks". Most overhyped game ever? - getting close guys.
November 20, 2007 5:35:46 PM


in Toms (Crysis SLI )review -

"Two SLI-enabled Nividia GeForce 8800 GTX @ 769 MB (total available graphics memory 1535 MB)"

I was under the impression that sli configurations used just memory from one of the cards (or is this CF??) - where's the truth??

fish, might as well stick with god of prince of heavenly creed.

edit, just checked that gamespot link, must be the same guy, because i am seeing it on all kinds of sites...

anyway, theres a big ass bug, you need to use this program (installed with the game) that you need to re enter the cd key code (i had this issue), a simple google search which is beyong most of the population is needed.

I bet there is more people playing solitaire at the office than there ever will be cod players, and your point is? CoD has almost as much WoW zombies?
November 20, 2007 6:08:19 PM

Let down by a poorly told story and gameplay which isn’t as fantastic as the graphics and hype would have you to believe, Crysis is a classic example of something which has a lot of trouser but not enough...um, nevermind. Because of that it just gets pipped at the post and misses the final hurdle.

http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/2007/11/16/crysis/1

Crysis is the name of the game and, for this game, that’s pretty much all that’s needed for the introduction. The name alone communicates all the various levels of hype, scepticism, awe and pant-fillingly beautiful gameplay and graphics to anybody with even half an interest in computer games.

Note: he gave it a favorable review, but said it was completely overhyped. Not even a game of the year contender.
November 20, 2007 6:16:36 PM

Well, Crysis did something extremely brave and ran with it. They are pretty much forcing hardware & game developers to push the envelope. Move into the true next gen of gaming graphics. Instead of baby steps though, Crysis took a friggen leap. I salute them for making this move because now the bar has been raised and everyone must rise to meet it as well. I think we'll see quiet a few changes over the next few months.

Yep, best not to get worked up over others' opinions since everyone believes they are right. :)  Always interesting to see what everyone has to say though.
November 20, 2007 6:40:48 PM

My only complaints are driving cars/trucks... its not exactly the most intuitive interface... its almost impossible to drive straight.

Also enemy AI could be ALOT better... if two of them are standing around, you can pop one in the head and the other doesnt even look around. Also the enemies dont go down easily.. you practically have to get headshots or spray them a couple times in the chest to kill them.

Also there is no ragdoll... so the dead enemies just sit there like rocks once theyre dead... i even had one standing/slunched over after he died (glitch?)

oh, and the rocket launcher seems like it does more damage than the tactical nuke.... which makes no sense at all.

and the stupid boats with mounted turrets seem to spot you from a mile away... and hit you!!! wtf is up with that...

Overall its a good game, but its just a preview of better games to come :) 
November 20, 2007 6:45:49 PM

I shot a guy twelve times. In the head (first shot), in the face (second shot), in the arms (third and fourth shots), in the groin (oh yea), and finished him in the chest.

Twelve shots, he was still standing! He was walking around and trying to shoot me! What kind of programming is that? I tell you what, they focused so much on the graffix, that they completely ignored the physics, the AI, the realism in the interfaces, etc.

OVERHYPED (successfuly in my opinion).

Hmm... maybe post processing has something to w/ ragdoll? When I kill people their body will conform into the spaces they are shot at. Ex. People will half hang out of windows or react to tables etc. when they are knocked into them.

Yeah, this is my biggest problem with this game. It's almost impossible to kill someone with a shot to the chest (unless it's a guass rifle or a rocket). Screw the nano-suit! Give me a flak-jacket, those mf'ers are invincible.

Definitely COD4 if you like previous COD games. For something different, I really like company of heros (rts) and valve's orange box. Portal is short but great and makes you think. I thought some of the puzzles were impossible at first but mess around for 10-15 minutes and you'll figure them out. TF2 has a cool look and feel to it and is just mp fun. I haven't even played hl2: episode2 yet.

I got Bioshock which is a great single player game for my xbox and since you played cod3 i assume you have one of the consoles since it wasn't released on pc. mass effect (released today) looks like a winner single player rpg on xbox. there's a special on sci-fi channel tonight at 11pm on it. bioware rarely disappoints.

i haven't played crysis demo yet but plan on downloading it this weekend when i have some time off. i obviously can't play on high with my pc but i'll check it out on med and see how it plays.

Can't agree more. For one thing CoD4 was the bestselling PC game at amazon, last time I checked. Crysis and Hellgate came after it.

Hellgate is junk indeed. As far as I'm concerned this is the most overhyped game ever.

I installed it on my XP Media Center/8800GTX/Q6600/4GB box, even switched nVidia profiles to single monitor to give it the best chance possible, and I got a blue screen after about 10 minutes. I tried again the next day, I got a crash to desktop while staring at a merchant's inventory - I hadn't even fought any monster yet that day. The PC works fine in other games, like Diablo 2. I have the latest WHQL certfied nVidia drivers (from Nov 6).

I'll let Hellgate rest on the shelf for a year, then get the latest patch and maybe try it on Vista.

Oh and by the way, I spent $10 more to get the Collector's Edition, it was supposed to give me a pet monster (mantawraith) to help. I never figured out how to get that thing to show up, and there's no help or mention of it in the manual.

Also, the controls are idiotic. Why do I need to move the mouse until I look in the right direction, then press W and keep it pressed to move? In Diablo this could be done with one hand, one action, no keyboard, just click the mouse in the right direction and keep it down. It's clumsy and very annoying.

And the quests are like "go kill 10 zombies, bring back 10 capacitors". You kill a zombie, a capacitor falls. No random stuff, no imagination. The NPC's have this extremely weird habit of saying one thing and showing another as text - it's like watching TV with closed captioning on but the text is totally unrelated to the sounds.

I'm so disappointed... :fou:  Do you guys think Crysis can possibly be worse??? I haven't tried that one yet...
November 20, 2007 8:07:45 PM

Nope it was minorly hyped just gamers who want to get their hands on it hype. Not the spending 8billion on advertising hype

No, Crysis actually works out of the box. lol. If you want to get about how broken HG:L was, I'll tell you this little story - There was a game breaking bug. One which prevented you from advancing at all (and just about every person received this error). So naturally there was a 16+ page post on their forums complaining about it, and instead of hotfixing it... they made everyone wait an entire week (for a full patch) just to add a simple teleporter and fix the problem... lame.

I'm with you on this one:

******HG:L SPOILER********

I don't know if you played a BM or not in HG:L, but I got to the last level (where I stopped playing it) and had to fight the 5 lies... one of them was a flying eye thing that wouldn't come down close enough for me to hit it. It just kept spawning little guys for 10+ mins. This was the point where I got so mad at the game, I just shut it down and haven't touched it since.
November 20, 2007 8:34:19 PM

graphics are really good, but the enemies and the realism piss me off. The koreans say the same 3-4 lines over and over and sound just retarded saying them. Also the 30 shots to kill one guy, the annoying helicopter, and the uncanny accuracy of turrets/tanks to spot you across 2 miles are other bugs that make hit game a 7/10 instead of a 9/10.

Crysis is awesome. I will agree with the high requirements (and the price you have to pay to play that game for its next-gen graphics). Nevertheless, I love how they revolutionized the graphics in that game. They look great!

If you wanted to play this game for its graphics then here's my recommendation.

Regular 17" monitor - don't play the game unless you have a 8800GTS Nvidia (or ATI 2900)

Widescreen 20.1" or 22" monitor - don't play the game unless you have at least a 8800GT or 8800GTX Nvidia chipset.

If you have older graphics card you can still enjoy the game but won't enjoy the graphics options at its real potential...or at least what it was "hyped" for.

I find the gameplay just fine. Watch out for the patch coming up in the next week or so if you're that picky about certain bugs in the game.

I'll second that. Bought it, completed it, uninstalled it, sold it, cursed the day I bought it. Without anybody saying 'mods', where is the replay value exactly??


Anyway, those who thought crysis was badly overhyped are generally those with high end graphics cards who find they cant, for once, put all the option sliders to maximum and are annoyed about it, or those who played farcry and didnt like it all that much.

Filter out these, and you'll probably have alot of crysis fans, although ones both daunted and impressed by the graphics.

yes, but once theyre dead you cant play with them anymore! theyre like rocks, their bodies dont react to anything...


and that damn helicopter is pissin me off. why is it shooting rockets at me when i have my cloak on and im hiding in brush?
November 20, 2007 9:22:08 PM

The missing 'poke dead bodies with stick' feature is apparently down to German censorship laws, which forbid gratuitous (spelling?) violence but however do allow fat old ladies to get their kit off and saggy breasts out to advertise chat lines on tv after about 11:00pm. Living in Germany now, I can tell you its all very, hideously true.

:lol:  :lol:  Yup, I spent a week in Germany some time ago and noticed that too. It's cool, at first, but it gets old fast.

Anyway, I saw this video somewhere where they showed a guy playing Crysis. He was throwing this big oil container like 50 metres up and then shooting it. Then he threw a duck, but this time he didn't shoot. I'm sure he could have, but that was too gross, I guess :na: 

November 21, 2007 2:23:56 AM

I admit that the hype for CRYSIS was a little overdone,but what good game doesn't?Sure there are bugs in CRYSIS that need to be addressed,probably will get a patch or two to fix most of the issues.But hey,look at FARCRY.It was a very hyped up game before release,and wouldn't you know,it had quite a few issues of its own when it was first released.The biggest one I came across with FARCRY was its lack of full support for the NVIDIA 6-series cards and up.UBISOFT was obliged to correct the problem and so it released several patches that not only addressed this issue,but several others as well.So hey everyone,give it a month or so and I think we'll see the fixes that are required,come out.It's just a matter of time.They(EA GAMES),need to wait for customer feed back as related to issues.They'll look at those issues and address them as needed.A game is after all,just a piece of software,and like most software,it needs to tested.Unfortunately,games don't actually have release candidates like an OPERATING SYSTEM.And even though they are tested vigurously in house,there are still going to be issues found that the testers have missed or not come across.And well hey,look at it this way.VISTA had several RCs,and yet at the time of its release,there were all kinds of issues that MICROSOFT has been forced to address.Hence service pack 1 for VISTA due out in the first quarter of 2008.Game away good people.

Pretty fun game, i was really suprised, i usually end up shrugging off most games after i play the beta, even after i was kinda excited about them to be released.
With Crysis, i didn't pay much attention, and didn't play the beta, i pretty much was going to buy it no matter what, if not just to test out
my new hardware with it.
Plays great, looks FANTASTIC!, and i'm running it in DX9 on XP, i've been having a blast with this game, far exceeded my expectations.
Glad i didn't fall for the Vista DX10 hype, a friend got all geared up with Vista and SLI, Quad core ect... his PC can't do any better than my single card, dual core, XP puter :)

Well, I sure hope you're right. Maybe with 100,000 beta testers they'll fix both Crysis and Hellgate soon. Come to think of it Diablo 2 had 10 patches too.

Mind if I hijack the thread a bit? Those Z-5500s are on sale at my local FutureShop, C$300. Are they worth it? I have an X-Fi XtremeMusic and I'm thinking it's wasted with only 2+1 speakers...

For gaming and movies they are awesome.That's exactly what I paid for mine as well.Good price and lots of sound to piss off your neibours.LOL.Yes they are a great buy.Not the best certainly,but a very good buy none the less.Those same speakers sold here in CANADA for 499.00 originaly.But as happens with everything else,once it's out for awhile,the prices drop to help keep sales up.And yes,your X-FI is wasted on 2.1 speakers.Goodluck.

well i think that this is the best game that i have ever played

i have played all call of duty games and i dont think that they even compare to Crysis.

This game was underhyped in my opinion
i actually think that this game is too good
i cant even play any other games because they dont compare
i used to play unreal tournament 2004 all the time but now i cant even go back to it because it isnt as fun.
it doesnt make much sense to me why i cant play my previously loved games. (i just cant) i get bored of them
it kind of sucks

but once again i think Crysis is the best game i have ever played
it incorporates so many new things that i have never been exposed to.
(destructible environment, customizable guns at any point in game, unfreakingbelievable graphics (been exposed to that, though) , and the best multiplayer i have ever played.)

Hello all,all I have to say is I sure hope UT3 isnt a flop.It will have to be damn good to even come close to be as good as UT2004.I still love playing that game online.Yes Im a UT fan. :pt1cable:

I literally just shot the hat off of a NK while he was running at me... and he just kept running.

I thought the AI was supposed to be smart :|

Crysis was an epic adventure. Kind of like Star Wars but on a gaming level.

COD4 was awesome as well but it wasn't Crysis.

iam using dual core 2.8, 1600 pro agp + 1 giga ram & does CoD 4 & Crysis (custom mix = medium & low setting) fine, i enjoyed both game, over hyped games are such = hellgate (doh!), empire earth 3, simcity socialites.

and the sad truths :pfff:  are magazines & net (E-sites) tend to encouraging the "Fail" and told us that the game is fine, got new features, bla-bla-bla "lolipop suckers" :ange:  , while dont give any positive / negative input to the game's developer that the game is about to fail the us the costumer :non: 


btw :sarcastic:  crysis & cod 4 makes me play FPS, iam usually hate such game, because => heroes does exist, but most of them died in the battlefield.

Considering the length of time it's been hyped, and how much PC gamers have been subtly (and not so subtly) "encouraged" to upgrade their hardware to play this game - I would have to agree.

Not having played it myself I can't say yet whether it's actually worth the hype.
