Comments Reply 1 of 6 nvidia2008 Posts: 9,262member December 3, 2008 8:27PM LOL no way. The MacBook Pro, however, should be able to run Crysis on "High" (not MAX) settings. Reply 2 of 6 trevowski Posts: 46member December 3, 2008 10:05PM Very true! Crysis is a game that is very far ahead of its time, as far as framerate and resolution goes.It's nearly impossible to run the game at full specs. Well I say impossible, I really mean not economic. It would take alot of money to build a system capable of running your game.

Crysis Warhead, which is designed better for lower end systems works though:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6mpu1n_iE8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anbFqjuwGXsYou miss out on a lot of quality in the graphics though.The new MBP looks better but still can't max out the game:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXMT8_g0yPQThough that demo didn't look like it was run properly. The MBP would probably handle Crysis Warhead pretty well.I would aim for a lower end game personally on the MB as well as a more interesting one. The Crysis demos are mainly just running about shooting a couple of times or blowing random stuff up. It's probably the most boring FPS game I've ever seen.Get one with a storyline and a mission like the Half-Life 2 series.

I wonder where it will come from... No, not Wii Sign In or Register to comment.
