f you recall back on the 27th of August (2007), the good folks at Crytek teased us with the idea of a Crysis single-player demo that would be released on September 25th. Unfortunately this release date was never met and we were left wondering if we would every get a quick preview of what was to come before the 15th of November, which is the official release date for Crysis. However, early last week the announcement was made that a Crysis single-player demo would be released on the 26th of October, and what do you know, it was!
There are a few things we would like to clarify based on what we have found with this single-player demo. Over the past few months there have been countless interviews with the people from Crytek about Crysis and 'Cervat Yerli' has made a few claims that we wanted to look into. First of all he claimed that upgrading to a quad-core processor would be essential and this had quite a few gamers madly chasing after Q6600 processors. From what we have seen based purely on this single-player game, is that quad-core processors will make little to no difference at all.
