This could mean "it's just not a big technological step forward in graphics"

Or "it's a bigger tech step in terms of optimizations while still having a lot better graphics"

This is the question, crytek want's to spin a bit of word fight , let's see who's going to buy the game after i see the reviews.

hmm, its starting to sound like this might have a few challengers in the visual experience side of things. BF3 is starting to sound like it could be the next crysis

I've heard from the developers if you can run Bad Company 2 fine (on DX10/11), you'll be fine, but it's definitely a big step up whether you have the latest hardware or not...more goodies but more efficiently coded.

Some say in terms of graphics, Crysis 2 is just ordinary...I wanna wait and see the review of PLAY Magazine UK before I buy Crysis 2

The original Crysis was a QUANTUM leap forward in terms of graphics, the tune Crytek are playing now seems to be "the graphics are SLIGHTLY better but the focus has been optomising it for greater system compatibility."

To be honest I'd much rather another quantum leap and not be able to play at max graphics for a few years to come. The scalability of of the first Crysis (patched) wasn't nearly as deplorable as people generally think, just that people optomised their video settings poorly on mid range hardware.

The real story here is that you won't have people saying, "But can it play Crysis?" anymore. And that's a good thing.

the original crysis didnt look THAT good to me.

main concern for crysis 2 is: http://www.sothi.de/blog/images/screenshot_crysis_small.jpg

their screenshots always looked much much much nicer than the actual game. over-promising and under-delivering is not the way to impress.

I think Crysis was more about subtleties and few scenes with an incredible combination of effects. If you want "oh my god is this actually happening" graphics, there's the Extreme Quality mod.

Words cannot describe how much I love you right now for sharing that link

It would be expected that screenshots of those dimensions appear to be better quality than in actual gameplay. For arguments sake, say that screenshot was captured at 1920x1080 and then downsized to whatever those dimensions are, you're effectively enforcing higher AA by reducing the visibility of jagged edges and also compressing the textures and visible polygons that were captured adding to the overall detail
