Crysis 2 Senior Animator Luke Kelly has said that the sound design for Crysis 2 is "breathtaking" and that gamers will not be disappointed with the hotly anticipated titles stealth components.
Well, they would say that, wouldn't they?
And i was gonna say that lol
If it comes close to Battlefield Bad Company 2 then its really good :-)
Nice. I've got an awesome 7.1 setup, so I can't wait to hear (and see) the game.
Someone working on Crysis 2 was able to talk without taking a crap on other games?!?!
I highly doubt it can compete with Battlefield: Bad Comapany 2 but it will be interesting to see/hear what it looks/sounds like.
I'm not going to bother with this game. After all the crap that has been comming from the mouths of these guys they can shove it.
Sounds good to me.
Man I can't wait for this title XD
DICE never said a WORD about their Sound Design. And look what happened. Bad Company 2 has some of the most realistic sound design in gaming history. Now, I find that anything that comes from these Crysis guys gets a generous helping of salt.
Actually, they said quite a lot about the first game which used the same dynamic sound set up as the sequel. Of course that could of been because the original was the first in a new franchise so they have to big up each and every aspect that they can, much like Crytek are doing, remember this is there first console game, they'll want to get it attention.
It's insane when you pull the trigger of a rifle and hear the ground tremble as the bullet leaves the barrel and then followed up by a distant echo. If you are outside, that is. Sounds different depending on where you are positioned. The communication between your team members is also second to none. I love how they yell out directives depending on your actions. Spotting a sniper etc. The sound design injects life into the battlefield that I haven't experienced in any other game.
DICE hasn't updated the sound in BC2 except in the PC version. It sounds very good, but I'm not quite as impressed as I have been with the audio in some other games, such as Uncharted 2 in 7.1 LPCM.
Maybe it's just me but i'm getting really sick and tired of seeing crysis 2 stories on n4g. I've said it before, 2010 is a huge year for games, we don't even know what is in store for us at E3. I don't think console gamers are getting excited for a multi-plat sequel to a game that they most likely haven't played. I know i'm not.
I agree these articles are getting annoying. Just stfu and work on the game and release it without hyping it to high heavens.
You cant always blame the developers. Usually a horde of articles all stem from one interview. Take this for example, its a community Q&A posted on their own forums and no doubt we'll be reading quotes based on (ripped from) it for the next few days. It isnt exactly Crytek posting these at N4G, nor are they running around giving interviews to every site.
What's wrong with devs liking their work and admitting it? I see no problem here.
Excellent. The Sound is an important thing now. Not only the Gameplay or Graphics. There are a lot of games with good graphics and Gameplay, but the Sound is not so realistic.
Sound is a really important aspect of the game. Its the little details that count. If the sound in Crysis 2 is "Breathtaking" then thats a good thing. And for everyone who's sick of hearing about Crysis 2 and just want it to be released, don't be angry at devs for liking what they've created. Perfection takes time.
I hope it's as good as the graphics.
Also ,I am waiting to hear any news about the game graphics features on the PC , something like tessellation and advanced DX11 stuff would make this game hit the bar again with benchmarking.
well the music for that trailer fuking sucked so they better not b lying
Crysis 2's sound is mediocre ?
I'm always really impressed when people working on the project talk about how great it is. I mean did anyone expect him to say it was average?
I thought I would have to go another week without a Crysis 2 related hyperbole. In the next update maybe the development team will reveal that their 3 ply Crysis 2 toilet paper is the softest. Seriously, these guys must be hamming it up for the console crowd because the PC world already know what to the expect.
blablabla... blablablabla... blabla... bla
Dude... CryEngine 3 graphics with Frostbite sounds? *jizzinmypants*
I'd be more impressed if it had been: "Crysis 2 Sound Design Is 'Breathtaking' - Senior SOUND Director" What is the animation guy doing talking about the sound? Talk about the animations, my friend! Will the tea-lady start talking about the gameplay engine?
exclusive tomorrow : The guy from the manual section praising the accuracy and realism of Crysis 2's weapons . And next week , an exclusive rundown on multiplayer from Crytek's local mailman
If not then they shouldn't even bother making such claims.
Crysis is suppose to have a amazing story, and the best graphics on both consoles, and very good sound. Now let see it delivers.
The way PR and marketing overwork themselves , we are only one step away from the "satisfied or reimbursed" clause .
But I know that they are obsessed with quality!!! who else is constantly commenting on story, sound, gameplay & graphics all at the same time like crytek?? more devs should do the same.. I just hope they keep their word!!!
I hope they take advantage of the PS3's audio advantages over the 360. I have been spoiled by games like Uncharted, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, GOW III when it comes to audio in games. If Crytek expects to compete with the big dogs, they have to not only step the visuals up but step the audio up as well
