The public demo was released today and I have to say, it is pretty awesome. But before that, here's some information on Crysis in case someone still doesn't know about it:

Crysis is an upcoming science fiction first-person shooter computer game, that is being developed by Crytek, and published by Electronic Arts. It will be released on November 15, 2007 in Australia, and the next day in Europe and North America.

Crysis is based in a fictional future, where an alien race has invaded Earth. The single player campaign has the player assume the role of Jake Dunn. Dunn is a United States Delta Force operative, who is armed with various futuristic weapons and equipment, most notably a "Nano Muscle Suit", which is an artificial and technologically advanced exoskeleton, inspired by the United States' Future Warrior 2020 program, according to Bernd Diemer, one of Crytek's senior game designers. In Crysis, the player fights both North Korean and extraterrestrial enemies, in four different locations: a tropical island jungle; an American aircraft carrier; inside an "Ice Sphere", which will consist of the same jungle, but frozen; and the alien ship itself, some parts of which will be zero-gravity. Crysis will utilize Microsoft's new API, Direct3D 10 (DirectX 10) for graphics rendering, and will include the same editor that was used by Crytek to create the game.

That's enough about that. Basically I just made this topic to let people know that there's a demo out now so I'll just stick to talking about the demo.

Even though the gameplay in the demo isn't WOAH INNOVATIVE, it is still really good and the game is a lot of fun to play. I love the physics and the full game is going to be even better because you can do so much with all the cool weapons you get. Then, the graphics. As you might know, this game is pretty demanding and it takes a really high end computer to run this game on high settings. I don't have a DX10 card plus I played the game on 1024*768 with medium settings and anti-aliasing off, and it still looks great. I think I can play the game on higher settings once better drivers come out for Vista though.

Some screenshots I took:

I'm downloading this now. I normally don't get into demos as they're such a tease, but I've heard enough about this title that I'd like to check it out for myself.

I have been fucking around in the demo (and I tried the level editor and played one of the multiplayer levels) and seriously, this is going to be the best FPS ever. I played it on rami's PC as well and the graphics were really impressive, it felt so cinematic and awesome. And the AI is really good too.

i love sneaking btw......... and driving a burning car into a building and jumping off in speed

here are two random clips i took, just to show how the game looks in action (note that my fps is a lot better but recording brings it down :<)

should try to take some longer and better clips later.

Specs, DS?

I want to upgrade my computer since I haven't done it in about 3 years. I have no chance in playing this game even on the lowest setting. =(
By the way, it looks amazing.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+
2GB Ram
Radeon 1950 Pro 256MB

Nothing too amazing but not a bad computer either. rami is going to post some screens/videos soon I think, it looks a lot better on his PC. I don't remember his specs though.

Tried the demo on my laptop (AMD Turion 64 TL-56 2x 1.80 GHz, 5400 RPM HDD, Geforce M8400GS, 2 GB RAM) and it wasn't playable even at the lowest possible settings. So you're gonna need quite a good PC to get playable frames in this game (it looks awesome by the way, in case you didn't know already).

This game rocks so much. Like DS said the demo isn't the most innovative ever, but it is a lot of fun, and this demo is probably better than any FPS I've ever played. It's just so well done, and I can't wait to play the full version with online play, more weapons and aliens.

Here's some screens with DX10 enabled computer. Specs: Intel C2D E6600, 2 GB of 667 MHz CL3 RAM, nVidia 8800 GTX 768MB, 500 GB HDD. Game res: 1280x768 (should be 1280x800 for widescreen monitor, but weirdly that resolution is not in the options. Anyway 1280x768 is close enough and looks the same anyway). I also played the game on 1680x1050, which gave a slight FPS drop but didn't look that much better, so I decided to stick with the one lower res. I don't play the game with all settings maxed though, because then the game starts to lag a bit, maybe when the drivers for Vista won't suck I can play with all settings maxed out.

Anyway, screens (sorry for the bad quality for some screens, I made FRAPS save with JPEG):

PS. Screens/comments might (does) contain spoilers.

Cool light effect. :-)

Posted Image
Sometimes this game is a lot like a movie. The voice acting, the graphics, the story telling, everything. It's just so well done.

Posted Image
Night vision is cool.

Posted Image
The light effects in this game are hot, I can't think of a single game in which the flashlight looks as good as it does in Crysis.

Posted Image
One of the best parts of the demo.

Posted Image
The draw distance of this game is just insane. I recall that in some tech video it was told that the engine is capable of rendering dozens of miles. No more disappearing scenery, I guess.

Posted Image
When shooting from this view, things that are out of focus are blurred, which is really cool effect. Also note the bullet trail on the left.

Posted Image
This screen really shows how nice the shadows are on Crysis. Everything is dynamic. The shadows move on the walls as wind swings the trees, etc. It's very realistic.

Posted Image
The water is also very pretty, and 10 times prettier in game when it's animated. Also another great shot that shows how far things are drawn with so much accuracy. Oblivion also drew far-away things, but they weren't so accurate.

Posted Image
I love the weapon-mod menu.

Posted Image
This guy doesn't know that his life is about to end... The vegetation in Crysis is awesome btw.

Generic action screen.

Posted Image
I don't know why but I just love this screen.

Driving vehicles is a lot of fun.

The explosion effects in this game are very pretty watching.

pretty cool demo. i could play it on everything fully high but AA only 2x on 1024xwhatever. kinda sucks that my ridiculously expensive pc cant run it on desktop res on full but what are you gonna do

it has SO MUCH PLANTS its insane. unfortunately the plants still look shit when you are sitting in the middle of them (which is how you will be seeing them for most of the game) but apart from that its very pretty

gameplay wise its cool. its either very slow or very frantic depending on how you wanna play, at least the demo is, i guess later on you will be FORCED to stealth and FORCED to superpunch for certain areas.

but yeah i still want to play the full version purely for the awesome ship boss battle they showed us a video of

Am I the only person that thinks this game sucks? Maybe its due to the horrible performance on my computer, but the game play is super generic, boring, and FUCKING HARD. Dieing every 5 seconds is not fun.

I didn't die at all during the entire game. I only came close when I ran into a firefight because I got bored with the stealth idea.

Well, I did die when I tried driving or jumping off cliffs, but I didn't die at all playing the game normally.

So yeah maybe you just suck or you lagged or w/e.

What difficulty are you playing with? I played with easy and normal and didn't find it hard at all. I did die once I think, but that was because I just rushed to fight 39853 enemies instead of being smart about fighting them.

I was playing on easy, but I think the biggest problem was the horrible performance. When I bring the graphics to a point where the game does not lag, the game looks absolutely horrible, to the point where its hard to see enemies. But if I bring the graphics up, it lags so bad that I can't play. My computer isn't even THAT bad. This game is a total system hog.

I played on normal, and I thought it was really easy. Never was killed by anything other than myself when fooling around the grenades. I thought it was way too easy though, especially with maximum armor. You take little damage plus your health regenerates.

Oh, and in delta mode (the hardest difficulty), the korean guys speak in korean instead of english with a korean accent, which is really cool (so you can't tell their tactics).

does anyone know what the tactical attachment does?

Yeah, I played on Normal too and didn't die even once, mostly because of the armor and the cloak. I already said this once but the AI has been really good so far and I like how it takes a lot of ammo to kill enemies unless you hit them in the head. I'm going to be playing Crysis on hard when it cames out.

Oh, and in delta mode (the hardest difficulty), the korean guys speak in korean instead of english with a korean accent, which is really cool (so you can't tell their tactics).

I didn't even know this. That's pretty damn cool actually.

does anyone know what the tactical attachment does?

I think it waries for every weapon but if you use tactical attachment with rifle, you can press "x" to change the ammo to sleeping bullets/darts or something of the sort.

EDIT: If you play around with the level editor, you can try different kind of weapons and vehichles (helicopter and tank for example) and a lot of other cool shit.

Looks very nice. I'd love to try it out but I find that I don't really want to play games if it takes a reboot into Windows. I suppose there isn't a Mac OS X release planned, either! In that case I'll just sit this one out.
