crysis 3
« on: 03:22 AM - 02/20/13 »
So i have it on pc and could use some guys to play with... add me on origin... a50lbDong. Also im gonna get it on console aswell and since my IRL friends are too nooby to comprehend the greatness of crysis ill prolly get it on xbox. I need some peeps willing to roll pubs with me there aswell so if you're down my gt is wa2en5emble. If your getting it on ps3 let me know too so i can accurately make my console decision.

Looking forward to airstomping some kids with yall!

Is it any good, though?

I can't seem to play Crisis 1 for more than an hour or so before I get bored. Every time I upgrade/build a new PC I max Crisis to see what kind of FPS I'm getting and I'm always like, "Wow, with everything on very high this game looks really good. I think I'm going to play all the way through it this time." An hour later I'm playing Blackshark or PJ64. I just can't seem to get into it.

What's it like graphically? If I'm getting 60+ FPS on very high in Crisis 1 can I expect similar results on 3?

If I pick it up I'll probably just get it for xbox. All my PC friends only play flight sims and all my RL friends only play xbox.

Im talking about mp pretty much... i guess its like a bf or cod but adds a lot more.... too much to explain. If your not an fps guy i wouldnt reccommend it. It pretty much brings fps to a level that most ppl arnt prepared to deal with... if your tired of the same old fps but love fps its a must buy.

Im not going to lie though i enjoyed the crysis 2 campaign way more than crysis 1... but there were huge advances in the engine since then. I hope the campaign in c3 does not dissapoint.

I liked Crysis 2 but I felt it was a huge downgrade from the first. You could tell it was developed with consoles in mind, it was so cut down and restrictive. I'll be getting 3 soon mainly just for single player though.

I'm loving the MP for this game as a change from BO2 but god @#$% if this isn't some of the worst network issues I've seen in awhile. Surpasses BO2 in the BS department as far as connection issues go.

Hoping that it gets a patch or two, but it starts to become unplayable when the only person on a 4 bar is the host and EVERYONE else is at 1-2.

I wonder if any game will ever emphasize connection in MP games ever on consoles.

None of these posts have said what kind of FPS people are getting.

Bad news... even with everything on low settings and res dropped to 720p im only getting 45-60 fps.  It is on a lappy running only a gtx560m  though... sigh i knew i shoulda built a rig for this one. I guess its still mildly better than console.

Be sure its Mickey Mouse on console then. Did you get the updated drivers that optimize for Crisis3? Dunno if the drivers include the 560m. There is also a beta optimization app that looks quite good. Optimized settings for my  Dead Space 3 installation but did not try it yet.

The driver made a pretty substantial difference... getting a pretty solid 60fps now which is more than playable... lovin it but still considering building a new rig for this sweet @#$% game.

Sounds good... game is fun maps are awesome... some balance issues... typhoon rapes every other gun as far as i can tell. The only gun you can get consistant double and triple sprays with... has to be nerfed me thinks.
