We've heard this story before. Remember when EA representatives told the gaming world that Bad Company 2 was a better game than Modern Warfare 2?
Thats a tall order
Bad Company 2 IS a better game than COD
i know...better than mw2 but not better than black ops... battlefield 3 will be better than black ops :)
I didnt know Black Ops was out???
alot of games>cod cod sales>all games which is it crytek i think you should go for quality because i doubt youll dethrown cod in terms of sales
and tbh, bettering CoD as a game is not hard at all! the sales is another thing though!
I guess when their plans to dethrone KZ as best looking console shooter fell through they had to set a more reasonable goal for themselves.
crysis is multiplatform, more is still going to play more than killzone and honestly, killzone 3 doesn't have the same appeal killzone 2 did, im getting crysis next year stop making fanoboy comments and this is coming from a guy who still own killzone 2
@^^^^ There is no fvkin way I'm getting Crysis 2 instead of KZ3 if I had to pick only one. Playing the beta, it is awesome, and devels are getting testers feedback to make it even better. No to mention the graphics O.O On Topic: Crytek is bringing a lot of hate towards its game for no good reasons. Even if game is quality, COD is an institution in gaming. The GTA of FPS, with a formula that doesnt change since COD4 but people feels comfortably with. CoD fanatics will not be sympathetic to those comments. This very same article already shows it.
and it looks fantastic, KZ is linear with no sandox or destrucion, and prerendered backgrounds, no real time lighting unlike crysis, and low res explosions. Go read the offical KZ forums about the your KZ3 beta, it's getting ripped apart over there LOL.
If you think getting game to looks good on one platform is a result of any kind of skill, you are retarded. Now getting a MULIPLAT to look and run amazing on all platforms, with 720p and 30 frames + 3d on both consoles, the 2 former being something much poorer looking games cannot always achieve, is an amazing feat.
good luck... and every one knows, QUality dont sale millions... dont know why, but is true. Every body has a Toyota, but just few Mercedez Benz or BMW
jriquelme not a great analogy there...price is a huge determining factor in whether buying a bmw or a toyota lol and toyota's are pretty quality vehicles, last much longer that most car brands. I get what you are saying though...if sales=quality then the wii would not be the top selling console this gen
you think every BMW or MB are the same prize and year? and there are models... I preffer a '2009 BMW than '11 Toyota. Check sales of Valkiria Chronicles, Deamon Souls for example... those are games way better than other with millions of sales sorry if dont understand the point, my english is not good :lol:
I said in my last post that i get your point about sales not equaling quality, just that your analogy is off and it still is after you clarified it...
Toyotas are much better vehicles than Beemers and Mercedes Benz's. They are more reliable and cheaper to maintain. My friend's BMW convertible top stopped working and it cost so much to fix that he had to sell it to a dealership. I've had a 1993 Toyota for many years. The battery lasted for 11 years without needing to be changed. Toyotas FTW BMWs are money pits.
Just sayin. *wink*
Im sure BMW has had recalls. Not to mention it was ONE recall. Toyotas are great cars that run for thousands of miles longer than most cars.
Those recalls made me love Toyota even more. Although Toyota of America didn't want to even issue a recall, Toyota of Japan forced them to do it. The Japanese have honor.
I don't think many people here know about cars. Toyotas get too much credit and aren't really better than any other brand out there.
"Remember when EA representatives told the gaming world that Bad Company 2 was a better game than Modern Warfare 2?" ummmmm it was.
THIS STATEMENT SUMS IT ALL UP RIGHT HERE!!! TOO BAD THE WRITER IS TOO STUPID TO REALIZE THIS..
A tall order in terms of sales, definitely. In terms of quality, however, Call of Duty's bland linearity is pretty much the fps at its very worst.
The only thing Crytek dethrones are the lame graphic cards that try to run it. -End statement
Perfect reference to the EA mess with Bad Company 2. I am excited for Crysis 2, though, and hope its fun
Very optimistic claim. Anyway, I can't wait for this game!
Same. With all the hype for CoD though, I dont think it will dethrone it no matter how well they make Crysis.
Meh quite a few games are better than COD the problem is to beat it you have to pay of a lot of reviewers to say it is.
Yes you must be a moron, because you need someone to explain in reviews to you if a game is good or not. Because you are a weak person and look towards other peoples opinions as you cannot comprehend a guy running around shooting a gun.
@lazysey: Whoah, what are you doing outside Black Ops articles? And since you're between people, I'd suggest you to start being accustomed to sarcasm.
"hay" buddy, how do you know if he was being sarcastic or not? What if he was really just stupid and sought out that reviewers as corrupt beings who are heavily influence by cash under the table from a publisher. Well, from the looks of all the uneducated people on N4G, I don't need to be accustomed to the sarcasm because there isn't any present. Example of sarcasm: "You're a cool person because you're accustomed to the sarcasm displayed in N4G" But in reality, cool will be meaning = I could give less of a shit what you have to say faggot.
Meh I dont follow reviews for my game I look at game features and previews myself reviews have never affected my buy so before you start calling people morons get your facts straight idiot. I though BC2 blew MW2 away and Saints Row 2 was better than GT4 but of course the richest devs games got the praise for a reason and it wasn't because they were better games. Oh and yeah I had both GTA IV and MW2. Sold both after a week..
No, I'm pretty sure you're just a moron. Go back to your cave troll.
Or get them drunk and laid at fancy release parties.
EA said the same with MOH and failed badly...it probably won't.
SHouldnt they try to make it a good game first? The footage we have seen of it has been less than stellar so far.
i hope its good.
I'm tired of space alien bs. Give me CoD over Crysis any day
So generic soldier #27 then?
hmm open boxed shooter with a much better storyline over linear COD levels with no story at all...
Aim for the King.
Wasn't impressed from the closed beta footage. Looks like a mixture of COD and Halo and some of the sounds sound like they were ripped straight from MW2.
it wont, COD is an arcade shooter, and has millions of support its not the better game though, BC2 def better than MW2. Lets see if Trey fixed IW's mess.
I just want a good single player like the first one
This will not happen, but you gotta aim somewhere
im srry but its multiplayer its showing me this its a slower pace than COD but theres nothing special about it.EA been trying to hard to take the fps crown and its not working
Lol? Well..good luck. I'd like to see it. But if they really are serious...then I know a few things that would help. Buttery smooth controls & framrates. No screen tearing either. Instant spawning, fast movement. See COD is tops despite it's (last iteration) unbalance and glitches because it was an ego boosting insta-gratifying game. You gotta hone that element if you want any chance at competing. You might think BC2 was better than MW2..., but it was slow and not enough ego coddling. That's why it never came close to COD. My opinions of course.
In order to that the MP must be as deep, have as many unlocks and be as customizable as CoD.
Saying is fine but they have yet to prove that any game they do will be better. It might look better but there is just so much more to a game than looks. Don't get me wrong I hope it puts COD series to shame as I always love a new game but they can only talk where as COD series has done for many years now. End of Line...
Wasnt that the plan for Bad Company 2 and Medal of Honour. Now Crysis? It wont.
Lol, singleplayer-wise, easy. Not so much multiplayer-wise, I think. Still, 2 great games.
If I was making a game I would not even mention COD..Because when you do, you never win.
BC2 was 100x better than MW2. lmao
wow where to start. First off, if a game X comes out and actually IS better than COD, it might not get the recognition because of many reasons: COD requires little teamwork. Yes you can work together but in TDM everyone just runs around aimlessly. It's why its so popular. Since the teamwork requirement is so low, so is the barrier of entry. Any joe schmoe can come into COD and at least get some noob tube kills, again, this is part of the appeal. So if a game were to come out that sacrifices this low barrier of entry for a more balanced and overall "better" game IT WOULD NOT SELL AS WELL. So by the basis for judgment by this article, the writer would never know if a better game did come out unless 12 year olds and ounce-a-day blunt fiends were playing it all across the world in record numbers. that said...Crysis 2 probably wont be that game. Would be a nice surprise though
Call it "Call of Duty Crysis " it sell by the bucket loads. lol
"Remember when EA representatives told the gaming world that Bad Company 2 was a better game than Modern Warfare 2?" And it was true, lol
So... is this the Call of Crysis or Crysis of Duty? Bad Crysis? Crysis Company? I like the last one the best.
well they aming way to hi really the ppl that hate on mw2 is because they forget fun I have fun with the game really !!I like the 1st one better but what we could do and I know the game is brokend and bugs but is easy and fun ,battlefield is great game but plays bad cuz of the lag more then call of duty ,I play the game on a 16 megs down and 5 up and is laggy,crysis 1 was ok overrated because with the amount of money that i got to put on my pc to run it good in very high settings it was around 2000 dollars so u tell me a consoel like the ps3 that cost 300 dollars have games that look better!! and i like action games cuz of action not to walk to miles to fight somebody ,is my taste and i respect ur guys taste but to be honest have fun !!! xboxps3pcwiifanboy here
Outside of the gaming community geeked out about the grahics for this game, who is really hyped up to buy it? This game is talked about on blogs, but outside of that it seems obscure compared to the household name blockbuster games. I would think they will have to spend tons to advertise the hell out of it to even come close to some of the blockbuster military FPS game sales.
Bioshock Infinite & The Darkness 2 will be better then COD, BBBC, MOH & Crysis 2 imho. Something other then space marines and another military shooter are what I am looking for. Again this is just "MY OPINION"
Please dont dethrone it,if you do then the whiny fucking kids ill migrate to it.
Yeah like the teams that just won the Super Bowl. "My fav team is the Saints and I've ALWAYS liked them from the beginning." Yeah, right.
IM so proud of you all that say BC2 is better than MW2. i really expected all the comments here to be "omg but mw2 is the bestest" i guess all those types have moved on to sites like giantbomb by now.
They'd never defeat it in sales. In everything else, yeah sure.
As much as i love you crytek... beating the COD players will not be easy :(
Here's hoping it does.
