am a bit shocked tho.... as what the game has been out for 6 months and still that price :O

I saw it for $39.99 on the american Direct2Drive site (down from $49.99 until monday) this was wednesday morning so I assumed it was next monday but adding it to the basket it came up as the higher price. They removed the special label/price that afternoon, had a right moan at thier customer services and have now got $5 credited to the account but they say I still can;t have it at $39.99 so I'll wait for a bit...

It's bound to drop soon as the UK stores are starting to offer it at £23.99 though steam in the US have it up for $64.99??? and they'll charge an extra $5 in tax for a UK purchase :(

Crysis Warhead and Pure

kingbuxton 27-09-2008 15:57

Re: what game are you playing
 
Crysis Warhead - so far so good....but

...............just got to the Hovercraft bit, awful, hate stuff like that, ended up floating around in a circle with seemingly no way to go getting the crap shot out of me, utter garbage.

Will try again later, hopefully this is just a blip and not a return to the last 25% of Crysis?

---------- Post added at 15:57 ---------- Previous post was at 14:16 ----------

And another game destroyed by a completely shocking section that I would rather just skip than even bother with, the controls are terrible, it's bouncing all over the place, you can't see where you are going. The thing you are chasing is nothing short of comical. It vanishes off screen from time to time "We lost him" they say on the radio, a pathetic attempt at creating tension, then it reappears when you have lost some energy going in circles waiting for "We've found him".

And why have they made the games specs even higher? Most of us couldn't run the first one fully, this is even more demanding, like I am going to go spend £150 to drive a hovercraft that defies gravity :rolleyes:

Re: what game are you playing
 
Its only a short part of the game

I disagree I found Warhead a lot less stressful on my system than Crysis

HELP! Where am I going wrong, I chased that thing into the area with the frozen ships, it jumps over the top of it, vanishes! I can see the tracks on the ice where it has supposed to have gone, through some mines half in the ice. You go a bit further and there is a huge Alien ship fighting the bad guys, and some beach houses, some guys in Nano suits. The green dot indicating where this "Lee" bloke is I can't see any way of getting to. It appears to be up on top of the cliff at the back.

It runs like a dog for me (still on my 8800Gts). Got it set exactly as Crysis is set and it runs way worse, had to drop some detail to get it smooth, I can see where it has gone, HUGE open areas and the Gfx are amazing.

---------- Post added at 18:32 ---------- Previous post was at 17:46 ----------

Oh, I see. There is no finess, you just steam in, dive out and leg it up those stairs. The fact the bloke you are chasing just vanishes off the map is best forgotten I guess. I just struggled to the main base shooting those annoying Aliens only to have to kill a giant Alien, which I did, YES, I did, as the blokes meant to be helping are doing rock all but get in the way, it died, I killed off the last couple of little doods, something went bang, and I am dead.

They destroyed the last game once the Aliens/Ice appeared, and they got slated for it, so what do they do, the exact same thing :banghead:

Not impressed, good job it was only £15 or it would be going back.

I've just finished Crysis warhead and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Thought it was alot better than the first game. Cant complain really for £14.99 :) (Well maybe I can when it has SecuRom :( )

There's a set of wooden stairs behind the huts, abandon the hovercraft and head up stairs ;)

I am hopefully almost finished Mercenaries 2. It has to be one of the buggiest/achievement glitched games ever. Of course, it's not surprising when you know that EA are involved with it!

Yeah, I saw it. You just pile in and leg it. I guess I was thinking about it way too much, I was trying to find the other bloke in the hovercraft, I came to the conclusion it had glitched when he just vanished into thin air.

To the point you get on the Submarine, that was all great stuff. Once the Ice hits and the Aliens appear, again, it goes downhill, like Crysis did.

Sorry, but when the guy you are chasing just vanishes off the level, and that is a scripted event, shocking game design. Seems like they couldn't figure out how to end that section.

Dunno why that happened to you but I watched the hovercraft go off into a tunnel it didnt just vanish like you keep saying.

I also didnt take the root with the stairs I ran to the left and used the strength mode on the suit to jump up the rocks :)

Yeah, you kinda pick him up again in a bay with loads of ships on their sides, he jumps over one of them and that was the last I saw of him. Assumed it was a glitch and replayed the level and even went back to the shipyard and borded the Sub again, did it every time.

Really not enjoying it at all. Just cleared out the mine, and now it is another boring defend a position moment, the Aliens are just too hard (Not so much hard, more tedius) to kill, this is why I didn't like the original when they appeared. They take way too many hits to die and move about far to erratic for my liking.

I can't be doing with bits in games where you have to keep redoing it till you do it, lest you fluke it first go. Not a good game at all, not even for £15. I was close to grabbing a 4850 on Friday, so it could be worse.

The Force Unleashed, which I'm really enjoying - particularly good for the expansion of Star Wars canon.

The only downside (although only a minor one in my opinion) is that it could have benefitted from being more of a 'sandbox'-type instead of the linear progession that it's got but, frankly, I think it's good anyway :)

I didn't get on that well with elite II (I won't even discuss elite III)

But for a real retro version of elite you should get hold of elte:thenewkind which is a pretty faithfull reproduction of the BBC 'B' version.

The best version of Eliete in my opinion was on the archimides computer.

I'll give it a go at some point, but I'm not very creative, unfortunately, so I think for me LBP will be all about playing the story levels & other people's levels.

crappy lol seeing as its the Unreal engine the GFX are nice but they have not done a very good job if you ask me. The way you hold a sub machine gun just looks wrong .

Picked up far cry 2 for PC yesterday so giving that a go. The graphics are stunning when running everything on Very High. Looks better that most the the trailers I've watched on it.

Midnight Club: LA

Quite an hard game imo, atm if you crash then you're basically screwed. I'm at the beginning of the game though, so I don't have a top notch car - and I started off with an 80s Golf GTi. :erm:

COD 5 beta version, not bad, good graohics, crappy weapons sounds, poor respawn on free for all, but looks promising,

no COD 4 though,
