Post When You Got It!

Recommended Posts


I got it today, and I can't believe what I am reading in the manual and what I see as I am installing it...

 

4GB of installation space needed

 

Only supports specific ATI and nVidia chipsets

 

MUST have Catalyst drivers v3.9

 

The list goes on...

 

I just hope once I get it installed, the gameplay justifies all this pickiness and super hardware requirements.

Let me know Skater....

 

I'm running:

Asus A7V8X with AMD 2800

1GB DDR 2700

ATI 9700 PRO AIW with Cat 3.9

 

 

I have not been having probs with graphical sets at medium to high.

 

CRYTEK has done many first IMHO:

 

Europe release on DVD Only

Release of Game Editor with Original Game

Upcoming release of 64Bit Edition

 

ANd the list goes on.....Crytek is really putting the screws to the HL community. There are countless modders that have been waiting for HL2 for way to long...and now Crytek introduces everything the HL2 can offer...and the editor? Go Figure. I've seen several Modders drop all their 3d plans to start a FC MOD instead. They are just sick of waiting for HL2...and the Crytek engine in simply incredible.

 

I'm about complete with the SP game...and I've got some MP time in as well. the review is coming along...I hope it don't dissapoint...I expect it wont. I'll try not to give away any spoilers.

Amazing! Simply Amazing!

 

I can't believe how good it is.

 

I have been playing nonstop. I just nuked the research facility and got kicked out of the chopper by Krieger. I am now at the beginning of the Dam level.

 

This is probably the best game of it's kind that I have ever played. Yes... I think it is. Those Trigens have been scaring the s**t out of me since I first saw one.

 

I am in awe.

OK, I died like, a billion times! I kept getting blasted into or fell into the lava pits.

 

Overall though, the volcano level was too short and the game ended too abruptly, as if they were dying to finish the game and put it out. I was hoping for more.

 

On the whole... Friggin' fantastic game man!!!

 

Can't wait for the mods to start hitting the 'net.
