    EA has released some new screenshots for their heavy-hitter futuristic FPS, Crysis 2. As former Green Beret, Alcatraz players must traverse through the alien-infested ruins of New York City in an attempt to escape mercenaries sent by Crynet Systems.

    It does look good even on consoles. I'm hoping there will be options for PC players to enhance the visuals and experience. I also hope the narrative has not been dumbed down to appeal to the 'console' crowd.

    I've just got this niggling itch in my sub-concious that it's gonna disappoint real PC gamers who remember how good Crysis was. It's a fact that this game was compromised to fit onto the consoles, you only have to look at the Cryengine 2 v Cryengine 3 videos to see how much was cut back.

    Still a definite purchase for me though - fingers crossed :D

    We should at least hear of DX11 implementation for the PC version or something , they have been quiet on this but let's wait and see.

    I've heard conflicting stories - that the PC & console versions are identical with no enhancements. Or that the reason for the couple months delay is due to Crytek developing tessellation effects for DX11.

    So yeah, the proof will be in the playing.

    Anything less than some serious DX11 features and 64bit launcher would be considered a step backward from the first game IMO.
