I just downloaded the Crysis 2 demo via Steam. It launches ok, showed an intro movie, and lists a bunch of servers to join. However, every time I join a game it does the 60 second count down and gets stuck on the last second. The chat goes 'silent' so I figure maybe other folks are playing the game successfully, leaving me to guard the lobby :)

Anyone else getting this? Any ideas?

Edit Looks like this guy is having the same issue, though no answer over there.

    For starters I would verify the game files integrity, it worked for me when encountering a weird issue :) – Oak Mar 2 '11 at 21:35
  • Aw, i was going to say the same... =) – Lysarion Mar 3 '11 at 9:54
  • @Oak, @Lysarion, cheers -- just tried that. It didn't say anything was amiss, but I'll give it a shot and see. Have also rebooted. – Drew Noakes Mar 3 '11 at 15:34
  • Win to verification of game cache again \o/ – Lysarion Mar 3 '11 at 15:59

Some combination of rebooting and verifying the integrity of the game cache via Steam sorted it out.
