Sooo, as some of you know I made an entry about Crysis, the most awesome FPS for PC out there (and a piece from german software-smithies ), around last year.
I've played through the game several times now, but something went missing after a while. Though I played on 1280x800, I couldn't put in any better shaders or shadows, not to mention particles and rendered light.
But after some experiments I gave up...until I got Asassins Creed. Now, there I played on 1280x800 as well but had the same problem: No FX possible. Until I reduced the resolution to 1024x768 and lo and behold:There came the effects.
Which gave me the idea to try the same with Crysis/Crysis Warhead). And it worked. My resolution for those two currently is 800x600, but who cares when the game looks freaking awesome because of it!
