Well I dont trust anyones reviews when it comes to "how good is the content" because that is just too damned subjective. I want a review to tell me the nuts and bolts stuff...framerates, do the weapons sound weak, etc. To me Crysis is a fun game...modding your weapons, all of them have a satisfying sound to them, the bad guys get blown away nicely...nothing like shooting the helmet off a guys head, going invisible...watching their flashlights in the dark, then tossing a grenade and seeing them go flying....or throwing a grenade under a jeep and watching it all go flying. Yes, its Farcry II....but its still fun, just like Far Cry was.
As far as the AI in the demo goes, they are dumb. The whole demo, you just go invisble then picked them off one at a time and repeat over and over again. The AI is so dumb that when a comrade is kill near them when you are cloaked, they dont even react. This was in the demo, maybe the actual game the AI is better.
All the AI reacts whenever anyone in this game dies, unless they die out of sight and you kill them with a silenced weapon. In fact most of the time you drop a guy, within seconds you'll see a flare going up calling for reinforcements. There is no way to do a stealth-kill in this game where you wipe everyone out without alerting anyone, it just wont happen, or at least I can't seem to make it happen.
EDIT the game doent chug at lower settings, but it just didnt give me any pleasure in playing it. CoD4 has a great online game.
I have Battlefield games on the PC if I want to multiplay, I see no reason to go beyond those games when it comes to online warfare because they offer things that COD4 could never. COD4 multiplayer is a step backwards to me...its Quake with real world guns. ...to each his own.
