I did NOT have a compatibility issue with Crysis 2 (or any other game I had installed in Windows 7) - in fact, I haven't had a compatibility issue with ANY game I've installed in the Consumer Preview. (None - and that includes the Diablo III beta, Blacklight: Retribution, and several other betas - both closed and open.) What was the problem with Crysis 2? (If related to PunkBuster - which Crysis 2 requires - then download the latest update for PunkBuster, or - if you also have Blacklight: Retribution installed - which also requires Punkbuster - update to the latest client for the game.)
It relates to DX11 mode - the game starts in a window with a stupidly small resolution (not even 640x480) and you can't change it or go fullscreen; it runs fine if I play it in DX9 mode but that's not acceptable to me. I also had an issue activating the game because EA decided I had used up all my activations by trying a different operating system, though I managed to get that resolved after chatting to an Indian guy who barely understood English. As for LA Noire, from what I've read online it seems to be an issue with Steam that causes it to crash to desktop on launch - the standard launch commands people recommended didn't help.
My gaming experience with Windows 8 was in general extremely positive. Unfortunately it wasn't quite good enough, which is to be expected at this stage in development.
