Crysis 2 Ultra Direct X11 & HD textures

Crytek finally released the long awaited DirectX11 patch for Crysis 2 but they also added a whole patch dedicated to HD textures. On the highest settings and 1080p, the framerate goes from 60 fps to 24 fps on my PC, a high price to pay to have new cool effects. Is it worth it? I'll let you decide and compare with the videos we made when the game was first released.
Update: DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade Trailer added.

Our Crysis 2 PC videos

As you probably figured out, we really enjoyed Crysis 2 here at Gamersyde, even though it is a bit disappointing in a few departments (the physics engine is less impressive than in the first episode, the AI is also lacking, not to mention the many bugs we witnessed). Therefore, we decided to try to capture some PC gameplay footage, which is a first.
Update: One last gift for you, we added two 1080p videos, 30 fps only though.

The First 10 Minutes: Crysis 2

Thanks to a French member who works at a retail store, we managed to get our hands on a Xbox 360 version of Crysis 2. Here are then the first 10 minutes of the game, the opening credits and a second gameplay video (to be available ASAP) showing a bit of the beginning of the avdenture. As you will see, the game looks good, though it also comes with a few framete and opo-up issues. Let's not, however, compare it with its PC counterpart.
Update 5: We added a short bonus video just because it looked nice.
