I havent' played COD 4 or UT 3. I have played through Crysis and loved it. I don't have the worlds best computer either. All my computer can handle was all low settings, and still had a great time (although that also means I had none of the awesome physics  :-[). In terms of graphics, Crysis wins hands down -- if you have a computer that can handle it at a decent frame rate  :P. I've seen a lot of peope talk about the story in Crysis, I actually enjoyed it. Sure, it may be the most incredible must see story ever but it's not as bad as a lot of people have cracked it up to be. I really liked how the story escalated. And I loved the hunter  ;). Far Cry 2 looks pretty fantastic too. I'm really looking forward to that.

That's good to know.  I love BF2 and have found nothing to replace...not sure I want to find something to replace it.  <shudders>

Ohh and I've tried both Crysis and CoD4.  I think CoD4 will be my BF2 replacement, and Crysis... well its gonne be another fun adventure to go on (the last being Oblivion).

Amazing!

Not to find out exactly where you live, but is it north of California?  I'm wondering about the high humidity due to the Pacific Ocean near Washington, etc.



Sadly, I upgrade my PC about once a year due to neccessity.   :-[

Otherwise, salt corrosion will eat it up (I live near the pacific ocean).  Here's what happens:  PC's work fine for about 10 months, then all of the sudden, weird things start to happen, then they eventually crash.  I've since installed A/C and air filtering, but it only slows the inevitable.

I just had my first occurance last week (on my Aug 2006 PC).  PC wouldn't POST.  Ended up having to replace the mobo...$180.  When I was disassembling the PC, I found a huge clump of salt crystals in the case on some of the cards.  Youch!

No, its Southern California, near the border.  The friggin' sea air!

But I moved here to surf and kiteboard, and its pretty nice for those things...

just realized something.....

UT3 also comes with Unreal Editor and there are loads of customs maps and mods available on the net for UT3...and also ofcourse you can make your own maps...I just started using the editor 2 days ago and it is absolutely fantastic....I am hooked onto it...I made a simple map and havent got a change to test it on any machine other than my own....if you would like to test it...just let me know and I will upload it....

does crysis come with an editor???...I know COD 4 doesnt...

Crysis comes with an outstanding editor. I haven't tried the UT3 editor, but if it's anything like previous UnrealEngine editors then I'd say Crysis is leaps and bounds beyond it *in terms of outdoor environments*. For indoor or smaller outdoor spaces Unreal may be better, but for handling large terrains, instancing, terrain editing, etc. the "Sandbox 2" Crysis editor is amazing.

ut3 was a big let down imo, it wasn't any different from un2004 except visually... same game play which gets old fast if you've played un2004...

crysis looked alright but i guess you need a top notch pc with a 24+inch screen to enjoy it fully with eye candy..

played about 2minutes of cod4 demo.... just a re-badged bf2 better graphics and different setting...

COD4 it great but the demo sucked, the multiplayer is great but you need to put time in to get the unlocks. Singleplayer was fun it mostly small squad shoot the whole way except for the US campaigns in which you play a marine the rest it all either you and a spotter playing a sniper or you acting with four other guys as the SAS.
The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

I like CoD4.  Fun.  Short (singleplayer), but fun.  Worth the time.

COD4 every time. I thought Crysis sucked. core2duo, 3GB ram, ground my pc to a halt. If you have just bought 2000 worth of gaming PC with twin SLI setup then it would probably be good, otherwise.... I didn't find COD4 too easy, but then, I always start a "new" game on Hard setting and when you get into some of the big fire fights inCOD 4 on Hard setting, they are pretty damn intense. I quite likes MOH Airborne too. Mind you, I much prefer good gameplay over great graphics. I have tried some fantastic looking FPSs and not even bothered to go past the "training" level cause the gameplay sucked soooo much. UT3.... well what can I say? More of the same, but thats cool cause it has some of the best gameplay around, very smooth to play and it gets quite intense at times. Mind you, I cut my teeth on the original UT (still one of the best games ever made). Saying that, if I want to go wayyyyyy back to a mispent youth, I realy started on FPSs with the original one that started it all off Wolfenstein!! I wore out 2 mice playing that game... Ahhhhh what fun.

Tell you what. The end of last year I played Quake 2 again, just for fun. I just goes to show, a well written game with good (no, outstanding) gameplay will live forever. I realy enjoyed it (and am sad enough to have remembered some of the levels) and it doesn't half fly on a 2 x 3GHZ Zeom PC with 3 GB ;D

mr-miley - Do you remember the original Delta Force?  Not great graphics, but was the first fun FPS with freedom to roam and pretty good AI.  I loved the freedom and the "realism" then.  I say "more of these, please".

Oh, to have more of that.  I felt like I was in the middle of real action in that game.  Hiding out, going under water, shooting through weeds, hiding in weeds, going the long way around to get the objective - it was all brilliant.

The best part, I remember doing that almost every time. Trying to do that without getting caught was almost more fun than the combat itself.  ;D
