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

IDK what these nubs are complaining about, bad programming aside, it is always nice to see programs that push the limits. Do you want software vendors to always cater to hardware vendors? No, and not the other way either. A balance is what is needed. Each always pushing the other towards further performance. It will happen anyway, but come on, those complaining about programs written for high end machines is so lame.
Nvidia drivers from August LOL
Medium settings across the board at 1024x768.
Fraps: averaged around 30fps+
Cut scenes fluctuate up and down to the teens.
Playable but not ideal. I'd like to be getting more.
But you know what, I wanted to build a new box anyway. What a great excuse to do so.
