Glad to hear it!

 

It would be great if I didnt get 200 ping on the servers though. What the hell is with that?

 

has the game released yet? i was waiting till 530pm then had to leave for work :( working till 9 then home 930, hope its good to go :’(

 

tera,

I think that’s a bug – you’re not actually getting that ping.

Can I have a keeee..ahhh crap! :(

tera,

I think that’s a bug – you’re not actually getting that ping.

But you are. There’s a lag between hitting jump and actually doing it, between chatting and it appearing on screen after you hit enter. It’s like I’m playing on an international server.

Maybe I’ll just chalk it up to being an Alpha but I dont see how they could code in a way to artificially inflate the time it takes for my PC to communicate with your servers. Lame.

 

It plays like crysis 2, but done properly. Less dressed up CoD feel this time around, but the HUD is mostly the same, unfortunately.
This may seem weird, but I’m looking forward to a crysis 4, fingers crossed without EA involved. Then they might make a game that truly deserves to be a part of the Crysis series.

 

The multiplayer is a lot of fun. Man, smashing an attacker with the detachable shield was a highlight, as well as taking out a group of defenders with a C4 dropped from above… good fun! No nano vision this time though?

The performance is much worse than Crysis 1 or 2 for me, I don’t think it’s using SLI as I had to drop my settings down quite a bit to get it to play smoothly, but it sure does look nice. Also there seems to be a bug where it constantly streams your webcam mic.

Awesome fun, day 1 purchase for me. Thanks for the key GON!

 

aww i wana see what the game is like:( should have got my key sooner!

 

ok got it from fileplay woooohoo

 

@everyone that replied to me

Oh yeah i realise that, i just lol’d thats all :-)

 

tera,

The latency reported in game is wrong, we had a single C3 server running on dedicated hardware in Adelaide (where we are) and still got huge ping times in game. It is an alpha, it is buggy, we’ve mentioned it to the devs.

 

yeah the game is a bit laggy hope this only because its beta and will be ok in full game :)

 

Please give me a Crysis 3 key!
