Crysis 2 on a Netbook

Hello, i've seen lot of videos showing lot of different models that demonstrate that it's possible to run it, even at 10-15fps; that's enought for me. Anyways, can't get it to work on my little machine, the incompatible graphic card message. How the hell the people that played this game on their little netbook have managed to get rid of this problem. Help!

  1. Complete shot in the dark but its quite possible they have a better GPU.

    It could be also that the internet lied to you. Crysis 2 is beast of a game and taxes even high end PCs. I very much doubt it runs on a netbook, unless that netbook is an Acer Ferrari or Alienware M11X.
  3. Tom's did a pretty good article on what games are actually playable on a netbook a few months ago.

    Crysis 2 is not among them.
  4. Yes, an AMD E-350/450 based system Can Play Crysis 2, but I would shudder to try in on any Intel Atom system.
    But then, AMD's APU's spend quite a bit of silicon on the IGP, usually to good effect.
    Not trying to say they are ideal for gaming, but if you have realistic expectations on quality settings and frame rates, you can actually get quite a few games to run.
    Personally, I use my C-60 based netbook for playing all sorts of older games while I am away from home.
  5. I still think that it's possible. Another videos showed that they were running that game on a HP Mini, with Intel Atom. Can't understand how they did it. There is a way to force it? Im sure that with Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Settings and all low/off would make it run. Sorry about my english, i only know basics.

    Intel's Atom processors have terrible IGP's and are not able to play anything but the most basic of older games.
    If they have a nVidia Ion GPU however, a newer Atom system can game nearly as well as an AMD C or E APU based system.

    If you are using an atom then you might as well forget it, its hard to play even the simplest of games.

    Only if you apply the DX11 patch and the high res texture pack. Crysis 2 by itself is not very stressful to run on an average gaming PC.

    Is a capable of running on a netbook with low frame rates? Don't know.

    The dx11 patch makes it even harder to max out lol

    Lol I didn't think anyone remembered those movies ever existed :lol:

    I'll have to find whoever made the video of themselves playing crysis 2 on a netbook and "ass" them a few questions

    By that mark I'm over the hill then because I saw both of those movies in the theaters when I was your age now! The first one was better. :sol:
  13. Hello, sorry for reviving this old thread. I'll ask, if not already, to this thread to be closed.

    About two years have passed and I upgraded my pc, Crysis 2 worked really good, I even got Crysis 3 running.

    So, kinda of a noobish question, hence this request. :)

    Thanks to all who tried to help! :)
