One last thing, It doesn;t even look all that. Yes, it has some good moments like the Tank level, but it was pretty underwhelming overall. If people think Crysis is the best looking game out there then thye clearly haven't played most current gen games. Rage, Crysis 2, Killzone 3, Uncharted 3 and God of War 3 all look better.
Rage, Crysis 2 and Killzone 3 certainly don't look better then Crysis at max settings on PC, especially in terms of the big open environments Crysis has at it's details....that's vanilla Crysis....modded Crysis and there isn't even any competition. Period.
By your logic, GTA4 and Just Cause 2 are the best looking games out there because they are 100X bigger than the big open enviornments of Crysis.
Having big open enviornments dont mean jack s*** if the game looks mediocre 50% of the time. Killzone and Uncharted destroy Crysis in terms of lighting, animation, detail and character polygons. Who cares if Crysis has semi open world enviornments?
