About time too! I'm sure this was promised upon release, seems DX10 and DX11 gets held back on quite a few game releases these days :x
PC gaming FTW :D

Nice indeed but after so much time it has already damaged their fan base a lot, beign a huge fan of the first two games I think they screwed up really bad with this game... It took them months to fix some huge bugs that have been around since the demo.

Seriously Dandelion, the first two are STILL full of bugs!? Crysis fanbase is largely a visual/showcase fanbase, people who like to see the cutting edges, this should help. 2 is an improvement in pretty much every way.

Does anyone know if people who bought the game on steam will get the update if it's been removed from there?

Steam should update the game don't worry they support all the patches and stuff even if the game game has been removed.

This should have been standard in the game when released for PC. Not that I'm interested in playing this poor console focused sequel but the statement still stands.

Got to love all the blind stereotyping :lol:
They made it console compatible yeah, shall I fetch you a bucket for your tears? It stills plays better than the original and is more empowering.

I only got so far in the single player campaign. I may just hold off it and wait for the update, I'll be sure to have a quick go beforehand to try to compare. I am interested to see how much of an improvement it will actually make.

I was talking about Crysis 2, not the first games, but now that you brought it up, they never fixed the horrible memory leak problems in Crysis Warhead.

Erm... no, Crysis 2 was a let down, just another generic shooter with an awful story. Crysis 1 had a better story, better enemies, better AI, better graphics, better gameplay, more weapon upgrades, ammo and grenade types in fact it was better in every way and the nanosuit 1 p**ses all over the nanosuit 2. This update just brings Crysis 2 up to the standard of Crysis 1 graphics, too little too late crytek.

Crysis 2 was crap, loved 1 and Warhead, will never preorder a Crytek game again or buy one on release after this whole DX11 debacle. Finished the game in DX9, it was pretty much as generic as could be and nothing like Far Cry 1 or Crysis 1 and lost all the good points of those games.

1 had bs AI, appalling hitboxes and some hilarious bugs. It's absolutely gorgeous but beyond that it's a bit guff. The story is better in 1 and the suit is tougher but it's clunky as hell. The AI either never notice you at all, get stuck on scenery, or are psychic. Stealth is totally useless thanks to that and guards ability to see throguh it and retarded energy levels. In Warhead, you know the bit where you have to target a docked battleship (may be the original actually) anyways. There's a bug there. Pretty much every single time I play it, the ship starts spinning around like a wheel, it's f**ked up. :lol:

I love the first 2, I'm just saying that some of you really need to open your eyes. Crysis 1 and Warhead were pretty terrible from a gameplay point of view. Warhead fixed it a little, but not enough. I do miss the old Scar though.

Anyone who cares to debate that, go ahead, I welcome it. But give a proper reply, "no" really doesn't give much room for thought :roll:
