Crysis 2 was released three months back to some disappointment. Despite a generally warm reception on the gameplay front, Crysis 2 was neither the eye-candy fest nor the graphics card stress test some were hoping for. If you recall, Crysis was the definitive real-world stress test back in its day. For quite some time after its release, even the most powerful systems struggled to run Crysis at maximum detail.
Crysis 2's lack of graphical oomph was mainly due to missing DirectX 11 support at launch, which meant that Crysis 2 could not take advantage of the latest technologies such as tessellation. Fortunately, Crytek promised to add DirectX 11 support in a future update, and, three months later, it has made good on its promise. VR-Zone has whipped up some benchmarks, videos and screenshots galore to see Crysis 2 in its full glory!
