The first gameplay footage of the new Crysis 2 multiplayer beta emerged.
lol @ 4:10
Looks like a lot of smoke and mirrors to me. Looks like a more colour full MW2.
I don't find Crysis a bit interesting, nice package but empty. Super soldiers, aliens, NYC, yep never played anything like that.
@zootang - trust me, the crysis franchise plays nothing like CoD. I hate how ppl have to compare every FPS to CoD. Its annoying.
So who's MP looks better? KZ2 or Cry? My vote KZ3. KZ3 MP video http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@Shack I don't like CoD so I don't see your point. It looks the same but plays different?
@zootang, Well, you would have to play it to know that ts nothing like CoD. The mechanics are completely different. The only similarities are that it is fast paced and, by the looks of it, it will have a kill cam. You will just have to trust me now but if you ever get this game then you will see that they are nothing alike.
@booch lol. Have you even played Crysis? IDK about the frame buffer but basically everything else you said is great in Crysis. Honestly, why is there even competition between the two games? They have nothing in common. Plus, the Crysis engine was built to have graphics being the #1 focus. Obviously its going to have better graphics than KZ. That being said, KZ is still going to be very amazing gameplay wise and graphics wise. This video is early beta used to test networking and catch bugs. They aren't even showing the graphics that are going to be in the actual game.
"Plus, the Crysis engine was built to have graphics being the #1 focus. Obviously its going to have better graphics than KZ. That being said, KZ is still going to be very amazing gameplay wise and graphics wise." What the hell? All that matters is what is on the screen. Killzone 2/3 destroys Crysis in every area except: * Resolution on PCs * High rez textures on PCs The Crysis guys love to put out silly tech demos and screenshots to hype up their fanbase, but their actual in game graphics aren't in the same league as Killzone 2/3.
I have to say I wasn't suspecting it to look that good. Obviously you have to take the cam footage for what it is but the level design with all the glass and water running looked great. There was alot of collision detection problems and strange bugs like when he broke the glass and half of it disappeared but they do have time to try an tighten the whole thing up...it is a beta after all but I'm curious to see this in HD. The guns and background sound effects sound really good as well. Great sense of speed when he/player ran or climbed something. All in all a decent showing with lots of potential. Hope to see some hd game play soon...when is this suppose to launch anyways???
I thought Crysis 1 was good and so was Warhead, but is Crysis 2 worth it? I know its gots nice graphics but I wonder what else will set it apart from the pack
Guys, I think this is the console version. PC will be different. I am getting it for PC.
"Plus, the Crysis engine was built to have graphics being the #1 focus." All engines are kinda made for that focus. The gameplay is the game itself, not the engine. You could say that Crysis itself was built for graphics being the main focus though (even though I would disagree). "All that matters is what is on the screen. Killzone 2/3 destroys Crysis in every area except: * Resolution on PCs * High rez textures on PCs " Another person who has actually never played Crysis... Let me tell you something. The main thing about Crysis isn't even the textures. Yeah, alot of them are godly (wood texture = O.O, and the texture resolution of each grass blade is like 1024x1024 or something close), but the crazy amount of lighting, ambient occlusion, per-object motion blur, physics, destructibility, shaders, insanely smooth soft-shadows, ect. is what makes it look so good. Killzone... has barely any of those, except lighting and post processing. Killzone basically revolves around those two. "The Crysis guys love to put out silly tech demos and screenshots to hype up their fanbase, but their actual in game graphics aren't in the same league as Killzone 2/3." The in-game graphics are actually better than what the videos and screenshots look like. I'm pretty sure if Crytek released bullshots and videos, we wouldn't have things like this, which prove that Crytek isn't full of BS. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... really suggest watching both in HD if you can.
I should agree with Stoney. Killzone has lots of baked textures. Crysis is mostly dynamic. That's why Killzone may seem to look better at places, but it is not as dynamic as Crysis. You realize lots of baking is in place in different lighting conditions..
Is this the game that's hyped to be the new console graphics king? On to the next, on on to next one!
Agreed. This game doesn't even come remotely close to the masterpiece that is killzone 3.
Killzone 3 > crysis 2
Oh you're talking about a PC graphics....yeah we're talking about consoles. And on consoles CryTech isn't showing much in the way of anything new. It looks like just another shooter.
because killzone is so innovative and fresh. KZ3 looks exactly like KZ2 same boring gameplay with a jet pack, same washed out graphics that are all grey and brown, same weak looking explosions, with same looking enemies that all look the same. if anything is just another shooter it is KZ, shoot form the hip hide behind box get force fed down narrow corridor or outside path rinse repeat. Yep, never seen that before.there is NOTHING KZ does gameplay wise that is anything new or special, it's only claim to fame was shitty " realistic to PS3 fanboys controls"
@DeathMetal One reaction: hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahaha You should play it before you make invalid assumptions...
So then what does Killzone 2 do that no other shooter does and still doesn't do?
@arnon Pushing console graphics to the limit, for one..
So nothing. Ok.
It does look like a more vibrant COD graphics wise, but it looks great. Can't wait to get it. Looks a bit glitchy and I noticed some texture pop-in, but that may be b/c it was running on the 360 too.
Underwhelming to say the least. If the first Crysis wasn't so awesome I wouldn't care at all about Crysis 2. As it is, I still have a little bit of hope that it may not completely suck.
Hey sweet im in that video :D
crysis 2 looks better than greyzone 3 IMO.
I like how they streamlined the controls for console. Map I played on seemed too small for Crysis type of gameplay, though. Prefer map style of Crysis 1. Anyone that's played enough of the first one will start getting kills in no time. Be warned, no type of auto-aim from what I noticed <--sucks being that you're playing with a controller. Not my kind of multiplayer, but I'll get it on PC for the story, graphics(:P), and because I've bought every Crysis day 1.
the game play and graphics looks amazing and its running on the 360. lots pf color and greenery in the game it doesn't have that drab gray/brown color like KZ3.
Unprovoked KZ3 dig lol. Halo:Reach didn't quite do the trick then?
Yes, because the arctic and scorched maps we've seen in KZ3 should be filled with colorful flowers and palm trees /s
This guy can SEE gameplay annnd judge graphics by looking at low res off screen video. So obviously KZ3 is doomed. So true, why isn't there more lush jungle environments in the artic....dam you god!!
You are arguing with a guy that wants rainbows and colored power rangers in all of his games.
cool then , enjoy the colorful boredom
well to be fair both crysis and kz3 are trying to achieve some moderate success. not a bad idea considering the last CoD sold over 10m copies. and these seem to be trying to emulate that gameplay experience.
It's clear you haven't played either franchise, since neither emulate COD... both surpass it from a gameplay perspective.
I would suggest that we all wait until the final game is out; it may turn out that both games are equally impressive.
Get me in that! Fkn beautiful.
i signed up for the beta but wasn't one of the people chosen. They explain that the beta will become public and those who signed up will get to play.
Dam tons of screen tearing on the 360, kinda like vanquish. I thought the 360 was easier to code?
dude its a beta not even the final build ....there is tons of screen tearing in the kz3 beta you know.
HA! There is NO screen tearing in the KZ3 beta! I have run into 2-3 glitchy matches, but there has not been A SINGLE graphical glitch whatsoever. Don't play yourself... KZ3 is champ in the visuals department.
and i havent encountered a single screen tear. and i catch those al the time because they bug me so much and i havent seeen any in the beta. not 1. stop foolin everybody
"there is tons of screen tearing in the kz3 beta you know." U just make urself like a FOOL!! by telling that.There is no screen tearing on Killzone 3. Well Im gonna buy both Crysis 2 and Killzone 3.Both games looks fun.
I thought you weren't a fanboy. what happened to you?
seeing as we haven't seen the ps3 build yet we can conclude that it probably looks worse. the ps3 track record would suggest that the ps3 version needs more time, like it always does.
Actually the PS3 build HAS been shown off already, and it looks better. PS3 was the lead platform. So you fail.
Actually they are developing them seperatly, at the same time, so you both fail.
Console wise, KZ3 has this beat graphically IMO EDIT: @below, that is why said console wise ;] PC will likely be amazing graphically, gameplay wise, I have no idea. To be honest, MP looks pretty boring and some of the sounds seem ripped right out of MW2.
If you compare PC version that is just common sense answer of no....But if its console well we are just gonna have to wait till both are released.
killzone is using lots of trick compared to crysis and reach http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Z...
Looks nice; can't wait to see the game.
Cool,but i say Killzone 3 better.
Just saying, have you played either of them to really make that claim? or are you simply looking at the visuals?
Just got done playing this game its just gonna get better i can tell love the multiplayer better then from the first one i think. This will probably be one of my major FPS along with KZ3 for 2011.
Looks like another boring, generic looking Sci-Fi shooter.
KZ 2.5 Crysis always had better gameplay than blurzone
uncharted 2 looks way better, and crisis 1 sucked big time,its just plain generic. and I'm not just gonna buy a game for its shiny graphics. doesn't matter what console.
Visually, even FarCry 2 on PC had Uncharted 2 beat left and right. So your argument is null and void.
ehh im not too sure about that. farcry 2 doesnt look that good.
Farcry2, Resident evil 5, gears of war 1 look damn great on PC, better than console exclusives. Well that's understandable since the consoles have limited hardware compared to PC
The PC versions of Metro 2033, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Far Cry 2, Resi 5, Bad Company 2, Medal of Honour, and GTA: IV to name a few all look better than anything on console.
**Gamespot**: "Crysis is [...] packed with intelligent, thrilling gameplay, and easily one of the greatest shooters ever made. [...] Quite simply, Crysis represents the first-person shooter at its finest, most evolved form." **PC Gamer**: "Crysis is a creative and technological marvel that eclipses every other shooter released this year." **Gamecritics**: "Crysis [...] is the pinnacle of next-generation gameplay and will be remembered not only as a remarkable technical achievement, but as one of the finest first-person shooters ever made. **IGN**: "This is some fast, well designed gameplay with enough options to allow players to use their own style of attack with satisfying suit abilities and weapons."
crysis is sandbox and uncharted isnt
bet you never played it, at least it has destrucion, sandbox elements, weapon customization, real time everything vs KZ duck and shoot with body kills instead of heashots LOL, you fail
Yep, Crysis has some cool gameplay elements, you can kill enemies silently, or play like a maniac. The environment is huge and insanely beautiful. Not many Fps these days let you play like that.
the best part about crysis 1 was messing around on a pretty tropical island punching people through walls and jumping on top of shacks....this seems to have none of that.
Exactly,saw nothing new nor exciting to ignite my interest
On the positive side, we've got ourselves another action-packed hollywood-ish shooter that has the potential to be lots of fun. On the negative side, there is no visual improvement over the first game, just a different environment, and a smaller one at that. This, coming from a developer with a reputation of making the best looking games, is a real let-down. I still say they're a bunch of sellouts, just like DICE.
