    Nice article. I hope they polish it out more based on your complaints. I have a few questions:

    1. Do you auto heal in every suit mode, or just armor mode? How fast do you auto heal? (I f'n hate auto-healing)
    2. When you hold enemies up by their necks, can you punch them in the face?
    3. How many weapons did you get to use?
    4: Do you know what kind of hardware you were working with, and how did it run?
    5. Do you fear this game will carry the EA curse?

    Hopefully the suckage AI can be put down to it's alpha/beta status. In my experience devs usually balence the game later on after most issues are out of the way.
    Looks gorgeous though.

    Most anticipated FPS of the year?

    Common, that stuck out like a sore thumb. Easily HALO 3 takes that title among the general population.

    You punched a chicken :lol:

    I want to see this game more than play it, but hopefully on somebody else's computer. Somehow I doubt that it will look very good on my 6800GT.

    1. You only heal in armour mode
    2. I don't think you can - Rich was the more accomplished punch/grabber
    3. A pistol, an SMG and the fists so I guess that counts as three ;)
    4. I believe it was playing on an 8800 GTS 640 and a Q6700... gameplay was very fluid and I'd imagine you can push settings up a bit more on that card. I'd be highly surprised if you couldn't come release (once it's been through QA, play testing, and so on)...
    5. I hope it won't, and I don't think EA would be stupid enough to do that... there's a lot of work to do on the balancing, but I think most of that can be put down to alpha/beta status. I'm still looking forward to it, even if I am slightly underwhelmed by that experience. :)

    By the current trend some time around 2011?:D Thanks for answering my questions btw:thumb: When I first saw footing of grabbing an enemy soldier by the neck, the first thing I thought was "Man! I hope you can punch them in the face like that!" I don't know why. Maybe that says something about me:jawdrop:

    From what I have heard Crysis only gives about 10 hours of single player gameplay

    Can you shoot any part of a tree and it breaks where you shoot? Or is it sort of a pre-done animation, i.e. shoot it anywhere and it breaks in the same place?

    Yep, I think we broke that news here: http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/2007/07/23/writing_for_the_lcd__fps_games/5

    From what I've seen both in and out of game, you can shoot the trees and it breaks where you shoot. As far as I'm aware, you can break the tree down and then continue firing (and breaking) either the stump or the broken branch/trunk. :)

    That looks brilliant - the water effects are absolutely mindboggling. Farcry brought us very pretty water, Crysis brings us uber waterage. I'll probably end up just jumping in and out of the water for like an hour.

    1. I hate to counter Tim on this one, but you do heal in every mode, just really slow. Armor heals you much faster.
    2. Yes you can, snoop around IGN for their E3 videos

    Blimey I almost mistook some of those screenshots on the last page to be real life from the thumb nails, it looks incredible, and hopefully the final version of the game will be a lot cooler with respect to AI and the like.

    Any idea on what settings this was running on ? resolution and graphical settings ...

    Nice to know it'll run at some quality with 8800 cards .

    BTW : You actually do have teammates in crysis , you just don't in that level ...
