    Initial thoughts - Press Start to begin? Sorry, my PC doesn't have a START key.
    Creating account - takes forever. Oh good. Gamespy. That's not universally hated for being rubbish is it.

    :(

    **** you Crytek. Seriously. They got lazy and screwed over their originally loyal fanbase.

    I was impressed with the number of people who said do not download the leak, and to support Crytek since they are one of the few remaining developers that shows the PC any love. Can't wait to see their reaction to this.

    And to be fair, going by first impressions, Its not worth the asking price. Cant wait to see the amount of pre-order cancellations.

    Seems MyCrysis.com is down, so you can't create an account via gamespy to play the game.

    Just a reminder too guys, any positive commentary on pirating games or advocacy of such activities isn't allowed on the forums.

    Auto-aim on a PC demo/game? Really? That should be put under the Dictionary definition of 'Fail'.

    Why is the FOV so small? The gun takes up about a quarter of the screen space. And for some reason you can't lean even though Crytek confirmed that there would be lean.

    To get past the CREATE ACCOUNT SCREEN > Create a GAMESPY account before loading up the game.

    Then once created, load up the game and use the LOG IN section instead of create account.

    Had to play this to confirm for myself. Unfortunately all that has been said is true.

    Not only is it a console port. Its a lazy one at that.
    Auto-aim is one thing. The brightness settings alsp refer to adjusting "TV brightness". Wtf.

    Controls clearly mapped directly from consoles. Dumbing down of gameplay.

    One annoying this is you have to hold right click to stay aimed down sights, unlike original...

    Oh and it can't play sound out of my headphones for some reason...

    You can turn auto aim off in the options menu.

    I'm an expert on the options menu. Its where I spend all my Crysis 2 time as I've been unable to connect to a single game in 40 attempts.

    Its a very consoley options menu. FYI.
