Computer's run it if you're reasonable about your expectations. And even in this case it still looks AMAZING (medium settings, say). And it has moments of gameplay that far exceed the FUN of HL2. PLUS it has MASSIVE replay value.
HL2 is perhaps more firnedly in terms of the type of action it delivers and when it gives it. But Crysis has it beat every where else.
ok for starters, half life has one of the most amazing stories, great loveable characters and a brillent company behind it that continue to evole and push the envolope with their games. they also take extra care to make sure their games run well if your computer wasn't bought yesterday!!
crysis has obviously better graphics and dynamics - but - it's because of this that it means you have to have bought your computer within a few months of it's realease or it runs like shit! my comp was top of the range in feburary this year, all the games ran great, but i didn't even finish the crysis demo it was so poor lol, i didn't feel i was doing it justice by playing it like this.....so maybe in a couple of years crysis, but for now it's me and valve, all the way
