When Crysis was released, it was so slow that unless you had the latest and highest-end PC hardware in the market, you could end up watching a Crysis slideshow instead. It was obviously not an acceptable situation.
On January 8, 2008, Crytek released the long-awaited Crysis patch 1.1 which mainly addressed its performance deficiencies, as well as a few bug fixes and tweaks. Will this patch finally allow gamers to run Crysis on their current hardware? Let's find out...
Here's a quote from the article :-
"Seriously, Crytek can claim they have the most graphically-advanced game in the world, but frankly, we think they could have done it without forcing everyone to upgrade. They should take a leaf out of 2K Games' book. Look at how well they did BioShock. It had amazing graphics, as beautiful as Crysis, we dare say; and yet, BioShock didn't require the kind of crazy hardware that Crysis needed just to run at all."
