Gamerzines talks about the next iteration of Crysis 2. Now that we know the PC specs will be lower, they ask: Will it be a stripped down Crysis experience catering more toward consoles.
Game still looks liek one of the best things out there.
It does look even better but I hope they didn't remove the sandbox gameplay that made the first so good.
People think BFB2 was going to beat Mw2. Now they think this will. Mw2 will still own. Especially on the 360.
^ MW2 is a game catered to noobs.
which is too bad because MW isn't that good of game.
We'll see what happens. Honestly, the only game I've played so far this gen that actually takes advantage of the hardware of the respective console is the Uncharted franchise. I don't think I've seen a blurry texture anywhere. The next time I play it I'll check and see. Lost Planet might be another game...it might of taken advantage of the 360, I can't remember that either. Every other game looked like it was ported from last gen tech and just upgraded to fit current hardware. You can tell when a game has been built from the ground up for a certain platform by just looking at the textures.
The fact that you have to LOOK for one is phenomenal in itself.
as long as it looks and plays good on my consoles, that's all that matters to me baby!
My computer is pretty mediocre, so I'm getting this for my PS3. I'll still be taken aback by the graphics, so I don't see what the deal is.
Halo Reach, Brink, Crysis 2, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Resistance 3, and possibly Perfect Dark HD for Xbox Live LOL!!!
That is my approach. I have high hopes as I loved the first one. Luckily if it sucks for the consoles, I have a rig that is powerful enough to run it MAXED out! Woot for me. Woot for you if you are lucky as well!
To me, BF:BC2 has already eclipsed MW2. It's by far the best, most polished multiplayer I've ver played. Every single kill is just so satisfying, I could play it for hours and never get bored. It's a perfect 10/10. But for PC fans sacks, I hope the PC version wasn't gimped because of the consoles.
I never played uc2 but uc1 is a jaggy mess. It's pretty bad.
@ 1.6 - Indeed it is, it means your version of the game is obviously different to mine, because I get loads of low definition textures and low polygon objects towards the end of the game. Anyway, on the article, the writer clearly has some issue with either Crysis or Crytek, or is just trying to get hits. Assuming the nanosuit model being shown in the screenshots is the same as will be in the final game, it is far and above anything that any game has ever put out before. Even console version of it looks better than anything that existed up until now. Back on the writer, he is probably the stupidest person in the world. He is trying to say that they have tweaked the engine to cater for consoles, and that this is a bad thing for PC gamers because it now looks better and uses less hardware power. WTF?
Crysis 2 stripped down for Xbox 360 and PS3? whats with the question mark article should not be approved
There are too many question mark articles on this site <Insert here> ?
You mean to tell me that a the PC version will actually look better than the console counterparts?!! NO WAY?! Since when has this ever happened?! Multiplat games always look better on consoles!! PC's just aren't as powerful as the Xbawks!!1!!! xD
If not, I feel so sorry for your poor little confused mind.. Just so you know...PC will always win when it comes to graphics.
Very clear it's sarcasm.
Probably talking about how the controls and level design will have to be scaled back from the first game since consoles don't have as much power or memory so they can't support big draw distances, high res textures, and large explorable levels. Control wise Crysis doesn't work very well on a controller, you can't lean and it has autoaim (for some reason developers for the most part are afraid to put autoaim into console shooters now), not to mention the suit controls worked awkwardly on a controller, surprised that the suit controls didn't get axed altogether too.
So, the great Cry engine cannot compete with Killzone 2 engine because the game must be equal or identical. OMG, what about the Killzone 3 engine??? What did they say? "The Cry engine will use all the power of the PS3, my arse.
Given that the original Crysis can do better than KZ2, I'm pretty sure the second one will too. On PC that is, I don't give a toss how it looks on your Wii.
Killzone 2 owns Crysis 1 in my opinion. The only part what Crysis 1 maybe pass over Killzone 2 are graphics, but the rest own Killzone 2 Crysis 1. Crysis has no war zone with atmosphere with full intens of gameplay all over the screen.
I guess you never played Crysis now did you? Cuz there were pretty intense moments towards the end of the game. Additionally the scope of the game is different from that of Killzone 2. In Crysis, you are suppose to explore the whole island ala sand-box. KZ2 is more path-driven. Moreover, saying that Cry Engine cannot compete with the KZ engine is premature. We have not seen legitimate action of the game. Hence, we should reserve judgment until that time (I reckon E3).
I love Crysis, it's only boring world and not much intense happend in the game, the addon is also very nice i like that.
Killer, I don't disagree that people may prefer Killzone 2 over Crysis. The things they do are a lot different. I think most would agree that Crysis has a slower pace, and allows for more lateral gameplay. But your original point was about the engine. And the Cryengine can do so much more.
While I agree that Killzone 2 has more explosions on a regular basis, I still find Crysis to be much more inveigling. http://gamerlimit.com/wp-co... http://i162.photobucket.com...
Edit the Title... is a question
I'm not as hyped up for this game. I absolutely loved Crysis 1, but there were idiots, mostly console oriented gamers, who said it was generic. The gameplay isn't generic. The gameplay is sandbox style. The gameplay style depends solely on the player. The problem is, was that so many new gen FPS players are used to scripted scenes where you just trudge along mindlessely. Crysis you had to plan out attacks, experiment etc.. I can tell they are making it more linear for the crowd that complained about the first Crysis. Less open environments, Crytek? Great. ugh
I'm going to miss sneaking around in the trees and bushes, only emerging to grab a Korean, drag him back into the bushes and silently beat him to death without the rest of his buddies knowing what's up :( One thing I know for sure is that the Crysis mod community will have all the Crysis levels ported into CryEngine 3 in a matter of days.
MW2 is awful.
DUH,how can a pc game compete with console anyway.pc will always win
Yet again ps3 GPU is dragging xbox360 down. It's not fair why xbox360 has to suffer also when everyone knows the graphics will be down graded because of ps3. This is the reason why i hate ps3 thanks a lot.
You just made my day sire, never have i seen such a fanboy comment.
I cannot resist this from a child. Your beloved Crysis 2 cannot even match Killzone 2 with the gimped RSX. Uncharted 2, with the gimped RSX and raise the bar in the game industry and than GOW 3 only use 50% power of the system and raise the bar again in the game industry with the gimped RSX. Please SHUT YOUR MOUTH stupid little kid, you know nothing about the RSX and how it works, without the RSX there was no Killzone 2/Uncharted 2 or GOW 3. The RSX is more important than you little brain can handle.
why is Gow 3 running in 720p with 30fps if the game only uses 50% the power of the ps3? pls enlighten me. On topic, the ps3 and 360 version will be very simular since both of them are equally outdated. Superior version obviously being PC. If the 360 was much more powerful then the ps3 then it would be closer to the PC version which it wont be (same goes for the ps3).
What the hell you talking about? this has nothing to do. The reason was that the game engine was not ready for such resolution. It run most at 60 FPS. Even the GOW 3 and soon ND 3.0 or Killozne 3 engine is more powerfull than Crytect engine. If the 360 so powerfull, where is the first 360 game that can match Killzone 2, where are they? i'm still waiting for that and people like you still talk crap like that. And i know you are one of those 360 fanboy, nice stealth post.
you should check my post history then lol, playing on a milkbox or the lowresstation is the last thing i would do. there is no such thing as engine not being ready for higher res, and its not that hard to make a game run on higher res if the system has the resources(which in this case the ps3 doesnt).
"Even the GOW 3 and soon ND 3.0 or Killozne 3 engine is more powerfull than Crytect engine." Lol, I almost fell off my chair when I read that! That's funny.
guys there is a reason that MGR's new account is a 1 bubbler just ignore him
Not cool some games should just stay pc exclusives and this was 1 of em.
They should have given console gamers time splitters 4 and let crysis 2 stay exclusive to pc i loved that the first part of crysis was sandbox now thats pretty much gone.
MajestieBeast thats what I have said from start crysis on console should been new ip.
I told you so, that Crytec do not use the full power of the PS3, they must keep the game equal. Third party developers keep the 360 on a life line.
Compared to xbox 360? Maybe. But compared to pc? Everyone knows a good PC i way better technical than a PC, thats why no console game has matched the original crysis.
why not use the full power of the ps3. crysis2 wont be 1080p on the ps3, i wonder whats stopping crytec from doing this? seriously whatever crack sony feeds you, you need to get of it. Ps3 isnt some supercomputer from the future. Its running on a freaking rsx which is stoneage compared to todays tech.
Yeah, sure it's just that darn 360. /s Some PS3 people don't understand that even if it uses all the vaunted "power of the PS3" it still can't measure up to the first game on PC. The "power" of the PS3 is very far removed from the "power" of the kind of gaming PC Crysis was meant for.
This is nothing new, it was foreseen since the game was first announced for consoles. Sandbox gameplay is where the PC really shows it's strength.
Hopefully the gamepad support for crysis 2 will be as great as the last one, i rather play this one on pc.
If you are using a gamepad, why not just play the console version? :-\
Because he has an Xbox360
Because the pc version looks better then the console versions. And because i prefer playing trough tv out, you ever seen anyone use a mouse/keyboard while playing trough tv out? I havent.
I play with mouse and keyboard while playing trough tv out.
"View GR post" "Look at ff13 and leaves"
so if Sony Santa Monica says that GOW3 uses only 50% of the PS3s power then the droids go crazy. But if NG says, that they used 100% of the PS3s power for uncharted2.. then the droids say that they ONLY maxed out their engine, haha They sound really retarded like hell :D!
probs because the game will be in 1080p run about 40-60fps 8xAA on half decent machine. ps3 or 360 will run 720p 30fps medium settings comapred to pc. I would allways prefer keyboard mouse thats one other good thing about pc gaming you have choice
I'd like to apologize to PC gamers. As PS3 gamers, we know what it's like to have to tone down performance or visuals in order to match other platforms in quality. It's a shame, really =(
bet you no one read the article
champ21 - 6 minutes ago PM Track Ignore 11.2 - why not use the full power of the ps3. crysis2 wont be 1080p on the ps3, i wonder whats stopping crytec from doing this? seriously whatever crack sony feeds you, you need to get of it. Ps3 isnt some supercomputer from the future. Its running on a freaking rsx which is stoneage compared to todays tech. ---------- the cell isnt stoneage. Sorry to burst your bubble. In fact is a pretty good concept, seeing as CPU's do lots of arithmetic operations and the rest of the instructions are to transfer, load, store, etc... In other words since a CPU does mostly calculations , a concept based on faster floating point calculations will boost overall performance by x fold. I wish my 4yr old satellite had this cell. :/ No person, that isnt blindsighted by fanboyism, will refute that PC games should and do look betters than console games. PC's can be upgraded, for an un/reasonable price, whichever way you look at it, while consoles are defined by the technology when they were first introduced. Thats why people take more notice to games aspiring to PC type , because its more difficult to get more out of a console than a PC.
id like to see the cell do 1080p 4xaa 60fps on all its titles then... until then its stoneage for me, atleast in its current setup. ps3 only does 1080p in less then 10% of its games, cell+rsx would have to improve on that to gain any credibility in my eyes.
Champp is actually being nice with those numers.. The percentage of PS3 games running 1080p with a minimum of 4xAA and REAL AA not that MLAA hack or fake FP HDR they use called NAO32...IS actually around 5% or less. These consoles. Both the Xbox360 and the PS3 are last generation. Why? Because years before either of these consoles came out the PC was running HD with 8xAA and 16XAnsiotropic filtering at 60fps+ Currently no PS3 game or Xbox360 game can do that. Period. That's last generation and the PS3 and Xbox360 could never ever run Crysis, Crysis Warhead or Crysis 2 like a PC. CONSOLES simply do not have the horsepower to do so or the memory. Or the GPU OR the CPU.
unless they really develop for the consoles indepedantly as 1st party exclusives...a port of this game is just gonna make it another shooter.. as the article pointed out..its the msx'd out engine which made this a stand out shooter...middle of the road graphics is just gonna make it fall back in with the herd of shooters
Will hopefully be great on PC. Lets hope they don't ruin it because it's going on consoles. BBC2 is Multi, but anyone who has a decent PC and running it at its max can clearly see it's head and shoulders above the Jaggie console versions. It's like a different game thank god, and Crysis2 will be the same.
Oh god Real Killer postin nonesense. Hey Real killer....tell us about "DEPTH OF FIELD!!!!" Stop posting. You have no idea what yo are talking about. And its obvious you never played Crysis. And was this a shock that the console version of this game would be gimped? People like Real Killer actually think the PS3 can run Crysis like a PC. Oh and I read your comment in the open Zone Real Killer. LOL Man you are lacking in brain cells. You related to Sarah Palin or her child?
@flankhim so I guess you like easy noob friendly fps? That's cool I guess....oh wait...no.. It's not... Bc2 owns mw2 in every area...weapons, recoil, maps, balancing, teamwork(if you know what means) and hardcore hasn't turned into a joke and btw don't even get me started on the bullet detection...lol
Hey Real killer. Why is it that only 5% or less PS3 games run at 1080p or less at 30fps if the PS3 is so powerful? "The reason was that the game engine was not ready for such resolution. It run most at 60 FPS." Game engine was not ready for such resolution? DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT??? The game engine has NOTHING to do with reoltuion. LOL. You just proved to eveyone you do not know your own A** from a hole in the ground with that comment. "The reason was that the game engine was not ready for such resolution. It run most at 60 FPS." LOL I thought I heard it all...you just set a new standard for being stupid on this site. Please do not post ANYTHING about technology...PC software...or anything related you dummy. Resolution you fool is determined by the systems bandwidth capabilities. Memory and Graphic processor mostly. Not the game engine. The GPU handles the resoltuion. "Game engine" LOL Oh man you are stupid and try to pass off that you know something. Go on Fox news. At least there you can spew BS and some people might actually beleive you. Glenn Beck and you could be bum buddies.
"The reason was that the game engine was not ready for such resolution. It run most at 60 FPS." I had to laugh:)
there isnt even one xbox Fanboy who ever said that PC games = Microsoft But GAMES FOR WINDOWS (90%) are sure Microsoft. I think you owned yourself hard.
this is news.. aka a title that isnt even stated within the article -_- n4g gets worse everyday.. at the end of the day if they max out crysis and its engine on each sytem its gonna go abit like this.. PC>PS3>360 (pc being best obv & im a console gamer before anyone starts, im just not blind)
