I agree you do not need DX11 for a great game or even great graphics however. Crysis 2 was supposed to have "the best" graphics, which requires DX11 to be used as it does have features that simply cannot be supported by DX9 and they do make the graphics look more realistic and once again crysis can be used as a bench mark and will be a more imersive experience. The point of all the complaining is that before Crysis 2 was released, it was listed as DX11 compatible, it was announced again and again that it will deliver the best graphics in any game to date and raise the bar above the orginal, The company even went out on a limb and said it was making sure the PC version would be superior. Yet all of these have yet to surface. Finally now we are going to see what the game engine is actually capable of and now we will finally see the efforts that the comany has put in for the PC version like they said. Why would sales figures be bigger for the PC version when, so far, it has been a complete let down over what the company promised? They didn't break any promises for the console version, it came out exactly how they had planned. I think once this patch is released Techspot should do an updated review and see what the effects are like and how they affect system performance before simply passing this up as to little to late.
