    Having played the Alpha I have, to say the level of detail and graphical quality is miles ahead of anything that is on the market at the moment including Far Cry 3 which is quite good.

    I am really looking forward to playing Crysis 3, mainly for the Singleplayer as that is what I generally buy them for but hopefully the multiplayer in this one is not as bad as it was in Crysis 2.

    At least, unlike most games these days, it isn't being developed for the Pi and then badly ported to PC months later :rolleyes:

    Lol I am a old school gamer 17 years and counting.

    I do prefer Multiplayer but, I love playing the singleplayer sides of games before trying the multiplayer.

    I am just hoping the singleplayer side of this game is longer than Crysis 1 and 2 and other games, sick and tired of finishing most games in less than 4 hours.

    I feel your pain bro, being a gamer for 18 years myself (started on Solitaire at 3...) and then played so many shareware demos that were longer than many modern games!

    Crytek games I've found to be a good timesink, as have the Bioshock, Borderlands, Diablo, Torchlight and a few other series. And I'm a racing enthusiast, so racing games get a good amount of replayability for me by design... and then you have CoD...

    IMO there's an equal amount of quality singleplayer games coming out. Maybe not with AAA titles, but they are certainly out there.

    So true, I started gaming when I was 10 years old on the pc though possibly younger as it's been that long but I know one of the 1st games I played involved a tape machine connected to the pc.

    They can do things like have super water cooled 5ghz+ overclocks and then use 2 or 4 top end graphics cards. Expensive but it's a good simulation of what will be normal high end a year or so later. They also know more than us about what to expect in the future because nVidia and Intel fill them in on what's what.

    Hahah

    Just to throw in my 2 cents, I'm playing Far Cry 3 with an i5-760, 4GB RAM and a stock 670 with every setting as high as it will go, apart from MSAA at 2x and V-Sync off in the game but enabled through drivers, and the game only dips below 60fps in heavily populated areas. The Beta drivers released yesterday were a godsend and really did increase performance dramatically.

    That said, enabling V-sync in the game menu instead seems to literally halve my framerates. So, for now, it stays off. (also, it's in DX11 mode but run through the normal fc3.exe file, so I may only be getting DX9)
