Re: Crysis is a big fat piece of ****
Um, those were in the first half of the game, not the second.

How many times did you pass the 'Escort Nomad' mission?

Yeah, thought so.

Actually, I liked the second part too. VERY good atmosphere and interesting, even if more linear.

You're a wrongularity from which no right can escape!

You guys are saying linear? How does it compare to Far Cry? Which, was sorta linear in its objectives but a lot less linear in how you approached them. (the only truely non-linear part was probably the kill the radio towers portion of the thing). Not that I'm going to keep this thing. Though suppose I could always download it on Steam one day.

I've got AVP2 en route from eBay so I'll play that for a while, assuming I can get my DVD drive working.

Crysis is overall more linear than Far Cry, and what nonlinearity there is is largely in the first half. The second half of the game has a lot of corridor-esque sequences.

It's fair enough to like the second half, but it felt like Halo 2 in its frustrating gameplay incoherence.

So if I buy Crysis from Steam, no Securom?

You may be able to stick your Crysis CD Key into Steam, download that version, and play it.

No, it doesn't work that way. The vast majority of games that have Securom on the retail version also have it on the Steam version. It doesn't check for the DVD, but the exe still silently installs the Securom virtual driver. This also applies to demos of Securom games, for that matter.

There's no reason a demo should be packing that ****.
If PC gaming is truely dying it's definately because of DRM. Having a game screw up my computer is a definate reason to ask why anyone would want to put up with this ****.

The publishers think that will deter the crackers from decrypting the exes. :rolleyes: I rarely bother with demos anymore because of this, as it's often harder to find a crack for the demo than the full game.

THE DEMO? There's no need of that!

It's amazing when you think about it. A few years ago, companies were giving away a 3rd of a game for free (ie DOOM and other shareware).
Now you can't even play a demo without getting violated. Maybe that's the reason why most of the games I play are a few years old. (aside from the reason my PC isn't top notch)

Re: Crysis is a big fat piece of ****
I just got a new PC, 4GB DDR3, 1080p screen, 9600GT... The newest game I play is SOASE. Other than that, The Orange Box and older. Favourite games: AoEII, Homeworld2, FSO, SOASE. Notice how only one of those is "New", and it had a budget of less than 1 million dollars?

Hey right now the main game I'm playing is VGA Planets 3. Do you want to know how old THAT is??? ;)
Think the newest game I've played is either HL2 or Painkiller.

The newest game I played on my computer? Maybe Rise of Legends, but that really sucked. =/

I actually enjoyed the first part of Crysis a lot, but that's all I got to play...

 
Re: Crysis is a big fat piece of ****
I guess I'm one of the few lucky people that have not had one problem with securom. I did have the 1335 error when I tried to install the 1.2 patch. But that just turned out to be a bad download as it worked once I redownloaded from another site. As for Crysis and Warhead, I loved them both and eagerly await Crysis 2.

There's gonna be a Crysis 2? O_o

Meh. Doesn't mean it'll have anything to do with Crysis 1. (see Farcry 1 + 2)

 
Re: Crysis is a big fat piece of ****
Crysis is supposed to be a trilogy not counting Warhead. Cryengine 3 is also coming to consoles, and with Crytek stating they will have no more pc exclusives, it looks like Crysis 2 will be on 360 and PS3 as well as PC.

That was because Ubisoft kept the Far Cry license after Crytek moved to EA. Far Cry 2 wasn't made by the same development team. Crysis isn't in the same situation at all.
