Ugh.

For what? To claim it to be the best looking adventure game only for it to be shallow and ultimately disappointing?

No, never. Crytek NEVER does that...

Very ironic coming from someone who has the Crytek logo as there avatar.

You cannot judge Crytek just becuase of what they have done with Crisis becuase FPS are over used and its hard to bring something new and fun to the table without copying COD or some other shooter.

Darksiders on the other hand is a hack n slash adventure game so they have room to be creative.

I would actually like to see Crytek work on this game and see what they can being to the table than work on another shooter.

Crytek Logo?... Lol. Its the Sharingan from Naruto.

As far as judging Crytek, I definitely feel entitled to do so based solely on the disappointing games they have provided IMO, and the fact that they cant keep their mouth shut.

Crysis 1? Glorified tech demo responsible more for crappy memes rather than the game itself.

Crysis 2? Laughably bad IMO.

Crysis 3, while a GOOD game, was put down by the fact that these clowns cannot keep their mouth shut about anything.

Crytek's best game was Far Cry 1, and they have yet to match it. Probably never will. While Far Cry 3 (Ubisoft) destroys any game Crytek has ever put out.

How much have they done outside of Crysis?

All they talk about is teh grafx. A franchise like Darksiders doesn't need to be in the hands of a dev that can't get gameplay or story right.

As long as they don't make it an FPS or TPS, there is hope for the series. At least it will be pretty, and they would have to try real hard to F up the source material.

Crytek does not need this I.P. Darksiders has an actual story and lore to it.. I wouldn't want it to become some husk of what it was and be one of the best looking hack and slash games of the decade.
Substance over eyecandy. Any day of the week, all year long.

This is dumb. They could use that money to star a new IP.

This is why they are out of touch with the current reality.

They have money and the ability to create a game, yet they are chasing something they don't need.

Create something new.

i agree, it would be all about shiny graphics and you could probably only do 3 moves.

sashimi1252d ago

Lol this isn't going to end well.

Dangit..... of all the people to get the game, its going to a company that only cares about visuals and nothing else.....
