I asked the question because at present the demo is looking worse than Call of duty modern warfare 2 graphics on advanced

It will probably look better because it will be dx11 but it shouldnt look worse ;p

I don't get where this is coming from. The demo easily blows out any other game Ive played. Probably the best looking game ever. I don't get how people can say it looks bad.

but yeah, the final game will have more customization options, and eventually dx11 support (though not at launch).

but relly, I've played crysis , metro 2033 and arma 2 at their highest settings, and the crysis 2 demo looks better than all of them.

EDIT: I think people are actually confusing the graphical settings. I don't understand how you could have it set to Hardcore, and NOT think its a beautiful game..

If your card doesnt support dx11 it wont run the game in dx11, im not sure exactly the performance difference between dx9 and dx10 but by looking at some benchmarks you might get something like 0-5 fps less than you do in the demo but nothing major.

Im not sure why people are saying the game looks bad either, they usually say crysis 1 was graphically better which may be true (Havent played it so cant say really) because crytek did say they had to hold back on graphics this time because of it going to consoles. Still the game looks amazing even on gamer, i cant wait to get my 560gtx and whack it up to hardcore (i hope i get good fps ;p)

I play the game on advanced not hardcore but a step below hardcore but honestly I can't see any difference between the 2

urm crytek said that they were gonna surpass crysis 1 but honestly the demo looks bad even worse than modern warfare 2.The city feels like mafia 2

Theres probably a few visual enhancements in the full game such as Direct x11 extras. Similar to the Dragon Age 2 demo.

i think most of us can't answer that yet since the officially game is not coming out yet. but i do hope we have better option regarding in game graphic setting just like the original crysis. if not i'm going to get mad at crytek :fou:  . imo pc gamer should be able to tweak the game as they like unlike consoles

lol.I face the same problem as you.On advanced the game plays at a smooth 45+ fps while going to hardcore takes my fps to 30-35.Hope they provide better customization although in nvidia's review they specifically stated that unlike the first game crysis 2 will only have 3 modes.Crytek have turned the original crysis into a shitty vall of halo shooter.The nanosuit in the game is very annoying.Whats with that robootic voice.BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL NANOSUIT VOICE CRYTEK.

The game is the problem not me.At least in warhead and crysis when you turned the settings up from high to very high IT WAS A HUGE DIFFERENCE.In crysis 2 after extreme micro scopic analysis of the game the only differecne I could make out between advanced and hardcore was that hardcore was more blurred and there was less pop in but seriously it takes nearly 15 fps away.On advanced I get a solid 45+frames.Hardcore just 30-35

lol. i can see difference between low, medium and high in crysis. but between high and very high it is hardly noticeable to me. i can only see the difference if you compare static picture taken from high and very high side by side :kaola:

i cant get AA to work on the demo if i force it through nvidia control panel. which is annoying. but wouldnt it look pretty much the same? just with more options and dx11...

You could probably activate AA in the full game IF it supports dx10.If its only dx 9 and dx 11 then anti aliasing can't be activated as in dx 9 deferred lighting and AA together can't be achieved.But on seeing the demo I have given up hopes of this game.The textures are extremely inconsistent.There are low poly textures everywhere and still the game is farily demanding.Metro 2033 will kick crysis 2's ass in the textures department. and I am sure that even with dx 11 tesselation and DOF crysis 2 will still not look good as crysis on mere high settings.BFBC2 llooked better and performed better on my rig

Omg do you guys read any news???? .... I guess not b/c if you did a bit of research you wouldn't be here quareling :p 

Crytek have said that in the full version you will get all the graphic tweaks as previous versions, they only kept it like this to reduce the demo file size (lol what?!?!)

If you go on Nvidia's webpage and find their 560Ti announcement, you will see that they write "Great card for playing Crysis 2 in DX 11) --> So I think it will be safe to assume the retail ver. will have Dx11.

As for graphics quality, we can't know for certain. I thought the demo looked pretty amazing, however I didn't feel blown away. My only concerns were flat 2D surfaces/textures (i.e. carpeting on the floor/ plywood around the place etc.)

However, that should be solved through by the tesselation offered by Dx11

In short, don't moan about the game until its out... :)

May I ask the source of this news that crysis 2 full version will have graphical sliders like crysis?I doubt it if this is true because in their review nvidia specifically stated that Unlike the first crysis crysis 2 will not have advanced settings just 3 preset modes.And since when was tesselation required to make textures realistic.I played metro 2033 on high settings no tesselation and the textures looked ULTRA REALISITIC.Even crysis in dx 9 high has amazing textures.This is my personal opinoun that crysis 2 looks like BFBC2 and battlefield 3 which is releasing this year will destroy it visually

Thought 'advanced' settings meant that you were allowed to change settings such as AA, shadow quality, etc in the full game.

lol.No.I was talking of the advanced settings in crysis where you could tweak object detail shaodws etc the way you wanted.That was a true PC Game.I tweaked the hell out it when it was released and still do.The various awesome TODS out there make crysis very beautiful and fun to play.I play crysis maxed with 2XAA but with object detail and shaodws on high because there isn't much difference between them on very high.Now in crysis 2 I am being forced to use the "advanced"(medium) setting because crytek only gave three presets gamer advanced and hardcore.I can't run the game on hardcore as I get 30-35 fps with some dips to 28.I hate playing on advanced becuase it wastes my gpu power.I get 45 fps minimum and avg 57 on advanced.I want the sliders of crysis back because then I can run the game near max with one or two things on medium

I meant it may only give us, "Low/Med/High" while giving us an advanced setting that lets you change certain settings. Sadly I thought that advanced would allow this in the beta, spending a few minutes to find out that it was a preset setting itself.

Graphics are awful, blurry, fuzzy, airbrushed and not crisp at all.

Looks like Bad Company 2 on medium settings, played on lower than native resolution and stretched to fit, with some bad AA and motion blur to try hide the jaggies

- 6870 Xfire / 2600k @ 4.8 (1920x1200 Hardcore)

Couldnt agree more.and the funny thing is that nvidia and IGN actually called the demo a very beautiful game with nvidia saying that the demo looked better than crysis.Crytek I still can't believe that you stooped so low as to dumb down the visuals so much that it actually looks worse than modern warfare 2.I hope that building on the aweful crysis 2 crytek will make crysis 3 demanding hopefully :(

BTW this may sound weird but decreasing the graphics to advanced solved the problem of everything being blurry

Its called post proccessing. You guys should learn about video game design if you are oging to bash it.

does real life not look blurry when you are not looking at something? Depth of field is a brilliant effect.

You sound like a 15 year old criticizing a Ferrari you don't understand.

I am quite aware of the depth of field effect.In real life when you stare at something the particular object you are staring at is clear and the objects out odf your line of sight are blurred.In crysis 2 everything is blurred way too much.Its as if the textures are low res and they trieD to make this unnoticeable by blurring everything.If you want to see post processing effects and depth of field effects at its best try the real lifesis mod on crysis 1.

Just as stupid as your comparison with cars, like we don't get that enough on Tom's hardware...
People are free to their opinion, it's enough to hear you bash anyone who says they dislike it because you enjoy the game. I didn't like the game, wasn't the graphics that made me dislike the game, it was the controls.

I don't care if someone dislikes it, i care that people say it looks bad when it has some of the most advanced visual effects of any game.

I think crysis one looked like ***. the water looked stupid and the trees were unrealistic.

thats not true, that how an idiot would sound making the same complaints about something they don't understand.

I've really enjoyed the stealth/armor stuff. really gave a tactical element to gameplay. you really need to think about what you are doing, its not just a twitch shooter like CoD. There are very few decent FPSs to play online right now, so im really glad crysis is coming.

If you are talking about the fact that crysis 2 has awesome visual effects you must have weird standards coz this game maxed doesn't even come close to metro 2033 even on high setting.I played metro 2033 on high and tried crysis 2 maxed and found that at 35 fps metro was way smoother than crysis 2.secondly the textures and lighting in metro really put crysis 2 to shame.In techinical shader wizadry nothing comes close to metro.If these are the maxed graphics then many other games coming out this year will flatten it.
Oh nd as for crysis 1 looking bad did you actually try any triple c mods or such modifications to it?If you did you would realise that the engine of crysis 2 is way inferior to crysis 1.Nothing can surpass crysis 1 with triple c pack visually.even in gameplay crysis 2 is complete ***.Crysis 2 has nanaosuit 2.crysis 1 has nanosuit 1 but unlike nanosuit 2 the original can take way more damage in armor mode.I couldn't find the difference between turning it on in crysis 2 as I would take the same amount of bullets without armor.The original clock mode didn't drain as much energy as the new one.also strength mode is partially removed.You can't throw grenades over long distances in crysis 2.Speed mode is a joke becausse the funny thing is that even with it on the character moves as fast as the PERSON IN BFBC2.Because of all these factors they removed the very things which were fun to use.The nanosuit was the one which enhanced my replayability of crysis1.Crysis 2 pales in comparison to crysis 1 in every angle possible and that is my opinion
