It's really annoying having Crysis 1 on Steam and yet 2 on Origin. But that's how it is and there is no 3 for Steam so I think I might have to go for this. But I'll procrastinate for a while yet before making up my mind.

Well spotted, this is a fantastic price.

Good price! Just a shame I refuse to give EA money but I probably won't be able to play crysis 3 on pc without doing that D:

What's the recommended spec for playing this, need to buy a new gaming PC\laptop! #noob

Great price for this.

Why is this "expired"?

Great game, I just finished it.
The only problem is that after playing Crysis 3 on maximum details.. every other game you try to play seems really poor (graphics and physics wise)

I of course remembered all that from memory, I didn't cut and paste or anything honest.

Only problem I have is despite having a 7970 and 7950 in my machine, playing this on maximum settings and 3 monitors I only get around 20fps. Playing Grid 2 on maximum and 3 monitors I get around 120fps.

Now, do I invest another £160 in another 7950 just for Crysis 3??? hmm

you dont it is a 6 hour tech demo

What you say might be true but I feel its made null because its on sale! \o/

Very good price. Pretty sure this is the cheapest it has been.

Not sure if to pick up now or carry on playing through all the games I haven't finished yet!

I want the prettiness!

Also the Digital Deluxe is £9.99 and includes Crysis 2 Maximum Edition as well.

Only if you rush through it - there's enough variance in paths for a replay or two as well.

Personally I enjoyed it enough at full price not to regret it.

Great deal, bought the deluxe edition

What CPU do you have? I was getting terrible performance until I upgraded to an i7-3770. single 7950 averages about 90fps on multiplayer. textures on ultra everything else high.

Oh that's a shame it's not on Steam, would have got it.

Excellent multiplayer

A genuine deal on Origin, well I never.

Try this. It will tell you after selecting the game from the drop-down... Hope it's a yes!

Remember to use quidco. 7% cashback! This should apply to all of the other Origin deals too.

Not true. Crysis 2 IS on steam. It was removed a while back, but in recent times, it was brought back - store.steampowered.com/app…00/

I have an i7 3770k. My problem is probably that my resolution is at 6448 x 1152 as I'm running over three monitors. What is your resolution?

No you misunderstand, I was saying I own the first two games but they are in two different managers. origin and steam and I can't even take the hit and buy it again for Steam because the 3rd game isn't on Steam at all.

you would be better off selling both your cards and going for a single 290x then crossfire later! 7950s still go for 150-180. sell the 7970 for 160-180, 7950 for 120-140 and grab a 290x for 400. they are built for eyefinity!

Thanks, will get this.

1080p mate. I like to game on a TV so don't really know about triple monitor set ups.

Campaign probably averages about 50fps overall with these settings.

Stupid question for this price, but is it worth it? The seemingly out of place, flavour of the month bow and arrow kind of put me off...

Paid £9.99 for the deluxe with crysis 2 plus all the packs! Cheers!

Just need a new graphics card now...

Bought, thanks

I have bad experience in the past with 2 GPUs or dual GPU(hd6990), i would go for ONE and better gpu. Its way better solution - less heat, noise, power consumption, and better performance. just get GTX780 and u should be ok...
EDIT: Sorry just spotted u already using two cards. Not a massive improvement then I prefer one single 27` 1440p monitor, way more enjoyable.

This is now also available on Gamefly for the same price using code GFDNOV20UK.

Could anyone tell me if I would be better buy this from origin or from amazon.com at $12.99 with the lost island code included

If it was steam it would have been Hot but anything Origin is Cold IMO.
