Crysis demo released; gamers lament the weakness of their PC hardware
Gamers who recently spent a considerable sum of money on a high-end video card will finally find that their piece of hardware is no longer overkill. That’s right, the
single-player demo is here as
promised by the developers
late last month.
The demo was originally set for
release on September 25
, but developer Crytek decided to push the public debut date back a month in the interest of quality. The retail date of November 16 still appears to be on-track.
“We are taking some extra time to make sure you that you have an amazing experience but also we did not want to risk the release date of
at this stage,” Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, explained regarding the delay. “To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call.”
The demo may be downloaded directly from an
EA Canada web server
. The 1.77GB download includes the entire first level and the CryEngine 2 - Sandbox 2 game editor, giving the community an opportunity to get familiar with the tools before the retail game ships.
As should be well known by now,
is the most hardware-demanding game to ship this year. Those who are interested in diving into the demo should

Stupid 60Hz Bug!

Damn Microsoft for this...another game that is stuck at 60Hz, joining Bioshock as headache-inducing games!
No, I'm sorry, nothing works, I run Vista X64, and nothing works,
I'm serious here, anything you can think of I've tried, nothing works.
Refreshlock, ATI Tray Tools, RivaTuner, FocreRefresh, the Registry fix,
Why oh WHY can't game designers add the refresh rate in the resolution settings, crikey's, even Works 4 Mayhem had a refresh rate setting!
Bah, maybe the release will have it, I damn well hope so...

This game pwned my PC, which I've never had happen before, I don't even think my next upgrade would allow me to master it, what a beast.
