Game can barely run on the 6870 with 12.1 drivers.  I runs smooth but when you need fast reflexes it lags a bit. I honestly think that it's just not optimized properly though. It looks horrible on consoles...unplayable. My 6870 plays much faster than this video and it's too hard to be competitive. Anything MP needs to be 100 percent flawless and never dip below 30 FPS. Even if I am getting 40-50 fps at times..when you need it...and it drops to 26 for even a moment, you're screwed.  Apparently they want everyone to go out and buy $400 cards for this game, lol.  I simply don't trust AMD for it's drivers at this point...they don't update enough, I'm hearing bad things about the 7000 series of cards even though they are cheaper than Nvidia's offerings. I'd rather have a card that works and accelerates CS6 to boot.

I hated crysis 2 especially the opponents which looked like giant squids and some others like barbecued octapous.This one though looks great .The environment graphics look top notch while the movement of the character look great. Will have to wait and see.

I hated crisis 2.  Plenty of hackers and such.  Visually the characters and the background look too much alike and the player models on both teams look the same and it sucked so bad, id run into a room and cant differentiate players and would die.  Oh and there were no US servers so I had the worst lag in any game.  total waste of my money.

ps. not using Origin ever, ignore Crysis 3 and the evil b****** at EA and do all your personal information a favour ie. don't let it be taken and sold, unasked, to whoever offers EA the most money.

My DX 10 compatible 9800GT can't run it. Just wasted 3+ GB of my net usage :(

Gamespot can you fix the HD 720p videos. I hate how I just can't skip halfway and have to wait a minute or two to get there.

Disappointing alot of the better weapons are unlocked after hours and hours of gameplay. Puts the new people wayyyyyyyy in the back. Can do a noob stomp easy at high rank. I know games require skills, but what good is it if the guy can 2 shot you >.>

For anyone here who hasn't yet tried the beta, just be aware that this game REQUIRES a DirectX 11 graphics card to even run. 

That is all...

My Kinect likes Seb's voice. Was trying to watch this in the living room and the Kinect menu came up each time he said Xbox.

I played the beta and have been almost none stop its fast paced and the graphics are great. the game is fun as h*ll and i have pre ordered it. if u are actually good at fps than u will enjoy it. it does take a little bit to get use too and u need to level up a bit so u can get attachments on the gun to get ride of some of the recoil

too much distraction on the hud and that camera is way too fast when looking around

Well, just your generic FPS multiplayer. Still, could be a decent generic FPS multiplayer.

EDIT: except it looks almost identical to Crysis 2, lol.

this vid does no justice for pc its embarassing frankly. gave it a try on ps3 and it didnt even look as good as killzone 3 sad, it was unplayable.

One last thing, I'm curious. Why is it that everyone that I ever watch playing PC games always has motion blur on either off or medium? Why not on its highest? Is it because of the frame-rate, or just because they don't like the look?

When you guys say 'beta' it sound like you're saying Vita.

I'll say it again, because I hope and think this is true. The 360 version looks like that because it's a beta, and maybe as well as it being a multiplayer; it's absolutely terrible. If you go play Crysis 2 or even Crysis on 360, it looks much better than this beta does. I'm really hoping the campaign on 360 looks better, otherwise I'm going to be very, very disappointed.

I really like how on the side it says both F.E.A.R. and Crysis 3. I wish Crytek and Monolith made a game together. Take the best of what F.E.A.R. does and the best of what Crysis does, and I think you have a game that I'd love more than most.

Never played Crysis 2, but I could play the original Crysis on maxed settings. Any idea how demanding this one'll be in comparison?

I don't know about Europe, but in the U.S., we call it a BETA, not a BEETA.

@Metallic_Blade Only the beta version. But still, that sucks. It's like they want to show us the game only in its shining clothes.

@CivilizedPsycho  Quality of art is subjective. Being extremly detailed doesnt make it more beautiful. I have a computer capable of running crysis 3, but i still personaly think that viva piñata is visually the most eye candy game i have eve player (ear candy too, because the soundtrack is wonderful).

@NTM23 It get's me sick when moving around, blur is more like a feature than a Graphic improvement.

@d_kell411 From what I hear, the original Crysis wasn't optimized well, that's why it couldn't play well on a lot of people's PC, while two did just fine, if that's the case though, then you should be able to run Crysis 3.

@noah364 Seeing as "they" invented the language, us 'Mericans are wrong. But we're a lot better looking.

@noah364 It's funny. As an Australian, I read it as (phonetic pronunciation) "We call it a 'beeta', not a beeta."

NTM23

@PuNksterHD Hm, yeah. I understand that. When my brother and I had a PC a few years ago to play games, he always turned off the motion blur, that's probably the reason.

@NTM23 @d_kell411 The texture quality was halved in Crysis 2, I was replaying Crysis the other day and I'm amazed that my Radeon 7750 can play it in medium/high it does still look amazing

@crzysheeit @noah364 yes they invented the language, we invented a phrase in 1776 'Merica Fuck Yeah!

@Monaro213 In the U.S. We say 'bay-tuh' or 'bay-duh', while from the sounds of it, you would say 'bee-tuh'. I'm not going to say it's wrong, 'cause it's not, but as an American, it does sound weird. There's another word, and I don't think it's an Australian accent, but what Hargreave's voice actor is in Crysis 2, he says data 'day-tuh' like 'day-ter'.

@evil_m3nace I haven't played it, and couldn't, since 2009, but I agree, it probably does still look amazing.

@NTM23 @Monaro213 Yeah, I lived in the USA for a few years, and I noticed there were a few words like that. Beeta vs Bay-tah, Day-tah vs Dah-ta, even zed(z) vs zee. Or my friends were Meg-an instead of Me-gan. I love language, and I just loved reading that despite the commentary :D
