Actually, the system specs aren’t nearly as bad as I thought they’d be. On the other hand, it looks like I’ll barely be able to run Crysis at all, and many of you will probably fall into the same category. Take a look:
Minimum System Requirements:
OS – Windows XP or Windows Vista
Processor – 2.8GHz or faster (XP) or 3.2GHz or faster (Vista)
Memory – 1.0GB RAM (XP) or 1.5GB RAM (Vista)

Hard Drive – 12GB
Sound Card – DirectX 9.0c compatible
Recommended System Requirements:
OS – Windows XP/Vista
Processor – Intel Core 2 DUO @ 2.2GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+

GPU – NVidia GeForce 8800 GTS/640 or similar
Before anyone has a hissy fit, remember that Crytek’s mission was to create “the most stunning, immersive FPS experience ever.” I think that they’ve accomplished that goal quite nicely. But at what cost to the player?
Give us the dirt, can you run Crysis or not?
