Electronic Arts' Frank Gibeau has recently offered some preview to how good Crysis 2 will be. "We were trying to craft a Halo Killer, you know a product that would squarely go after what Bungie built with our partners at Crytek."
OMG now we will see what is going to happen without the open zone!
yeah... i miss Open Zone. i could have said anything there and not get banned. sigh.
its gone, deal. Now community report this as off topic off topic, rofl.
When I hear people say this type of thing I don't really think that they are talking about actually converting Halo fans to the new series. Just that they are trying to make the next "big thing" in the gaming community with all the buzz and fanfare. Being a multiplat game that seems (so far as I can tell at this early point) like it is gonna deliver both decent visuals and gameplay I think it has the makings of the next "CoD" like fanbase as a possibility.
As much as I love Crytek I think they seriously need to shut up. Crysis2 Should have been PC exclusive.
that hoping PC version will remain top notch. I hate the new communication of crytek.
It shouldn't be exclusive but it SHOULD not be held back at all... If anything they should have made Crysis 2 for PC and then made it for console as a completely separate development project. It is not like both wouldn't pay off and make a profit on their own.
theyve been talking a lot recently...they need to deliver now didnt they talk s**t about master chief and killzone...i mean i get that they are just tackling the big dogs on both consoles, but atleast bungie and GG had respect for each other and their games
WOW...really???...another Halo killer...there must be at least 5 this yr alone...
i knw right... the horde of em keep coming.
The first Crysis was a mediocre shooter with great visuals. I expect the same from the sequel. Another ugly chick in a pretty dress.
Well said!! Nothing is going to kill Halo. The only way Halo can be killed is if Microsoft stops making them.
It's so funny how it's always the people who have never played Crysis in their life call it a "mediocre shooter with great visuals". FYI: Crysis has a 91% rating on Metacritic based on 56 critic reviews.
Killzone 2 was the same thing if thats your opinion on the first Crysis. Except is was mostly black. At least Crysis had a color scheme.
To all those people who say 'nothing can kill halo', well I'm pretty sure the same was said about the numerous popular shooters of their day such as Battlefield 1942. Will Halo be killed? YEAH. Will it be game you want to play? I don't know, but people still play 1942 as will they Halo.
Killzone 2 was as generic and mundane as Crysis was. And I have played Crysis. A 91 metacritic doesn't mean anything. They didn't review the game, they reviewed the visuals. As stunning as the game was, the story was asinine and the gameplay dull.
but i had a blast grabbing Koreans by the throat and throwing them with "Maximum Strength", then turning on "Maximum Speed" and taking off through the jungle to flank a jeep and blow the hell out if it and nearby beach sheds. Add in that most things were destructible, the game had gorgeous visuals, attachments for weapons, and playing on Delta difficulty was a pretty huge challenge, and you have a more than solid FPS.
i love me some crysis. i've played through it and warhead about 4 times each. the multiplayer wasn't very solid, but there are only a handful of single player FPSes that top it.
Halo is a beast... I highly doubt crysis2 will sell even half of what Reach is going to sell.
With all the talk of other peoples game im starting to have doubts about this game. I may rent it to try but the PC should be the best version by far. These guys just want to lure the console people in but by acting better than every popular shooter they can think of they just sound arrogant/worried. As long as they dont say anything about HL tho. By the time this game comes out I dont think they will have many fans if they keep this up.
after playing some of the beta. crysis 2 is going to need more than great graphics imo. the beta is great.
If you guys don't mind me asking... where are the Halo trolls? And I'm serious. There should be an onslaught of them. Are the mods banning them? Removing the comments?
If this aspires to live up to it's hype, it better have significantly better visuals than what's been shown so far.
they talk too much they should concentrate on their own game more.
Agreed, and we've all heard this crap before anyways. The more these guys talk the better I'm expecting their game to be and right now it better be the best thing since sliced bread. No game really kills another game, not even sequels. I mean people were still playing Halo 2 even after the servers were taken down. I doubt Crysis 2 will have that type of following. I'm not saying it can't be a better game but I doubt it will equate to the same success the Halo franchise has had.
Dude I still play Halo 1 on my PC even though I have a tone of new online games and mainly shooters on it :p I have yet to come across a game that mixes guns and vehicles so well as halo not even BF can do that. In Halo if you are good with a particular weapon whether it is the pistol the sniper the grenades or even the warthog and the ghost you can dominate.
If you are in the business of making games, you want people talking about it and sometimes you don't have the luxury of a solid fanbase to do it for you, so you have to make some zany claims like this one. I don't agree with his choice of statement, but I do understand it.
they come out with a new statement like this every day. Im pretty bored of crysis 2 already and it isnt even close to release. I love FPS but they are just begging people to only rent their game, or completely pass over their game, by being so arrogant. If the game isnt A-freaken-mazing that will happen anyways because of such lofty expectations. I havent heard much about gameplay or anything about c2 except visuals and how its "going to do ______ better than ______ game." Also the author of the article is a MORON. Saying "halo lives on popularity not quality." HAHAHAHHAhA. Halo is the most polished and feature rich(also one of the first) multiplayer games in CONSOLE HISTORY. Thats why its popular. The reach beta is more polished then Modern warfare 2 for balls sakes.
For them to beat Halo, their going to need a whole lot more than purty colors.
These devs keep on leveling this game in some ridiculous high plateau. I understand that they need to market this game but damn.
Honestly no first person shooter can never kill halo. Halo will always have a strong fanbase and they will not leave the franchise for crysis. At least with halo in threads they talk about master chief the multiplayer etc. Crysis on the other hand they do not even mention the main character at all. I swear all they do bring up is graphics it has nothing worth mentioning. If your gonna hype the game up tell me why I should be interested in this game. It will flop so don't be surprised.
Just make a good game. It doesn't need to be a Halo Killer.
what puts you on the headline of more gaming sites? "we will make a great shooter that people will enjoy" or "We will make a Halo Killer!woof woof, rawr!"
anyone remember the haze developers saying the same thing
hats even more funny is that the Haze developers are working on Crysis 2. I had fun with Haze though...(I know someone out there is probably laughing at me.)
just remembered that free radical were merged with crytek in nottingham, I wonder is it a policy to shoot the mouth there. Your right by the way there was some cool parts in haze, it would have been better if they did not give away every concept before it came out and instead let the player discover it for themselves.
These developer's talk alot of crap. I just wish they would stfu and concentrate on what they are doing instead of everyone else. This game better look GREAT with minimal glitches on the consoles or they are gonna look pretty stupid.
what has halo ever done to them also why did they reset the bubbles? I worked hard for my 8 bubbles :p
Yeah, really. I guess it was designed this way so people won't be as likely to get into pissing matches. Less comments will inevitably add value to the comments we do have, people won't be so eager to waste them.
well, thats every fps dream right there, to get to beat halo....but it seems to be a curse, every game that was titled to be halo killer went from bad to worse...and ended pretty much a flop
Wow they really are trying to hype this thing like it's the second coming of Christ.
Has anyone considered that idea that Crysis 2 will be everything and every bit as good as the devs and public relations guys have said it will be? Maybe it really is a Halo-killer, with better graphics than Killzone 2, an amazing story with great characters, etc.... Odds are against it, of course, but wouldn't it be great if it wasn't just PR talk!?
There it is. The best way to hype your shooter, and the best way to disappoint those naive enough to believe what they say. It may well be better than Halo, but nobody should think it is because they said it.
i actuly hope this games fails to be fair aftert all the BS they been talking
i dont think it take much to beat halo in terms of game. now halo 1 i dont think anything will come close for a a while,but halo2,3,4 have all sucked
I would argue with you but what you said doesn't even make sense. What is Halo 4? Are you talking about Reach? Because Reach has a lot more in common with Combat Evolved. You would know that if you didn't talk out your a$$ about games you know nothing about.
halo 1 halo 2 halo 3 halo:odst(4) not so much talking out my ass,but u forgetting odst(which was crap) basically halo1 is by far the best halo,the rest have been rubbish,meaning crysis might kill the follow ups but not the original halo on xbox1
Says him. Halo's quality is in it's online. Bungie has given so much to their fans to ensure Halo's quality is unmatched for the online multiplayer portion of Halo and it's series. Not just popularity.
Good luck with that... Halo is a game with years of history, an a huge fanbase... with just 1 game you cant "Kill Halo". Crysis maybe is the "best looking game" but not the Best
Not really fair on GG. I don't recall reading any of their dev team making the claim that Kz 1 would be a 'Halo killer' - more so media hype or maybe some Sony exec pumping the game up.
Halo has MasterChief, it allows players to connect with his plight as they control him through the struggle. Just like Uncharted has Nathan Drake, Gears has Marcus, Dom, etc. Zelda has Link, the list goes on and on. Crysis has NOBODY. There is just a dude in a cool suit with predator cloaking tech and weapons. But there is nothing to connect someone to emotionally. You don't get to KNOW your character through level development like those other games. Even Killzone has a slight character connection, as you see people from the 1st installment. (I expect Rico to die in the 3rd) IMO this is where Crysis fails in a major way. There is an mental/emotional void that all the other hits seem to fill in one way or another. I think people would be more upset if any of the other games mentioned would cease to be made versus if they decided to not make anymore Crysis games. This is just my opinion though... some may disagree. But after I got bored with the suit's cool features in Crysis, it left me feeling empty game-wise.
i'd hate to see a once respected gaming compnay for bringing out the best graphically impresses game, go down.
I so much dislike when a game has to be a "killer" of another game, let the new game stand on its own. Great franchises will stand the test of time. Hopefully this next Crysis will be great
So developers and publishers should stop trying to hype up their game by mentioning it in the same breath as Halo. Halo is a super-duty franchise. How many other games when they release get blamed by the movie industry for low ticket sales, have other publishers postpone their games so they don't release in the same time-frame, how many other games can sell 10million on one platform, and how many other games gets the attention of a well known and well respected film producer like peter jackson not many. Most games get the uwe boll treatment.
Halo is like Sex to Most Gamer's .LoL
the less i want to play it. Crytek has become worse than Turn 10 in the childish department
Everytime people say this it ends up not
halo killer must be exclusive to ps3
im currently playing the reach beta and im sorry but crytek are in for a world of hurt....even with two maps (the other two become avalable on saturday), it kicks the crap out of any COD/KZ/battlefield game i played. cant comment on crysis but when people do praise it...it only ever seems to be the graphics they mention.
In my opinion, I find crysis to be good, but not the best.
how many halo killers have there been out now? and how many have killed halo?
Saying all this stuff for us gamers, or for their own ego? You could label it confident, but I would say this baiting is misguided. Maybe they are overstating what Crysis 2 is? The constant goading if not lived up to, sets them up for a grand beatdown if the game under performs on any level. I think they can be competitive in attitude, but I don't think constant instigating of gamers is the right lane for these guys to take. Be a gamer...Not a hater
that statement alone will have crysis commit suicide
Crysis 2 and Crytek are doing everything they can to drum up hype about their crappy game. Crysis 2 Fails to capture the visuals of Crysis Pc not to mention the gameplay was already BORING. Make a fun game first and not just a graphical masterpiece then let the fans decide if it's a Halo Killer or not. Anyways there are no Halo Killers oh wait Bungie left Micro$uck so there that's your Halo Killer. Killzone 3 FTW.
From what im seeing with the Reach Beta, Crytek better have alot of tricks up there sleeves
Crytech should stop acting like B*itching girls make a good game and get the fuC*K over if it will be better than halo
Halo is THE shooter on consoles. End of story, period! There is no debate. I personally cannot stand the game and think it is an average FPS at best. Why? Because I am one of those horrible PC gaming elitist everyone talks about. All my FPS and Strat games are played on PC and PC only. For me there is not an alternative. Every other category I will only play on console. With that said, I don't know why this guy would even mention the two in the same sentence. IMHO, there is no comparison because of the different platforms they run on. Halo 1,2 on PC are viewed as "the very back of the line" in the FPS category, while Crysis is at or very near the front. It's going to be same, but in reverse when Crysis 2 comes out for consoles.
Halo died years ago!!
Really? Then why people still playing Halo 2 then?
I was never a fan of Halo, but the way I see it if you want to kill halo your going to have to develop your own unique experience. I also see the irony of this statement seeing as how halo used unreal as a template for it game play but thats another issue. if you really want to beat Halo develop your own unique experience (yes that is not an easy thing to do but thats the dedication you need to make a good game these days). As a ps3/pc gamer I feel that gears of war was better than halo for that very reason. for the sake of avoiding a flame war I will refrain from comparing ps3 exclusives with xbox exclusives.
