CVG:If developers want to make an impact in today's market, they need to put out titles that achieve review scores of 90 percent or more
It will, crytek knows what theyre doing
. http://www.youtube.com/watc... - beta or pc.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... & the level design look great! http://www.youtube.com/watc... If u think Im hyped for this hell yeah!!! I pre ordered so I want my money's worth!!!
Looks like garbage on consoles.
PC Fanboy alert. Crysis is pretty impressive, I would say the best looking FPS on the Xbox, and not that bad for PS3 standards either.
Console version..that shotgun is bullshit. >: | Yeah looks good but looks amazing on PC. I think KZ3 MP has the edge on the consoles. I will be getting both though. Thanks for the vids.
Too be honest, i fucking hated the first Crysis, i thought it was complete shit, and i have my reasons...but i will most likely be getting Crysis 2, i think it looks a lot better than the first, once again i have my reasons...I guess what im trying to say here is that im sure it will do fine in the review area
If you thought Crysis was "complete shit" you clearly don't like FPS in general or didn't play it.
Just wondering, what did you think of the worm boss? That one was cool, you gotta admit, no?
The second will play exactly like the first, sandbox shooter gameplay, you better just skip this one if you thought the first was "complete shit".
im actually a huge fps fan, and i was mostly just not impressed with lack of good story telling, i found alot of the game to be monotonous, and the animations were honestly a little sad for cutscenes (example: The bridge scene from crysis:warhead...) I dunno its my personal opinion on it, i dont mean to trash a game i know people like, im just saying, i had some issues with the first crysis, and i think the second one is looking awesome.
CVG is a joke. What a stupid headline.
Yep; they're just setting this up so they can get a free copy.
I just hope is better than the first game. Not saying that crysis 1 was a bad game, but the plot was pretty bad, and gameplay was good but not great. The only thing i remember crysis for is the graphics witch were great. Edit: also characters had none development at the end of the game the only thing you know about nomad is that his code name is nomad
Sry for double post but: At the desagrees on my comment the game has those troubles im not making them up. I understand that you some ppl feel that im just bashing the game, but i really want them to fix those issues, if any of you desagrees where a fan of the first crysis you should ask for this in order to get a better game. Not saying that it was god awfull but it could really improve in other areas other than graphics.
@jidery, what do you mean by ps3 standards?
Getting a 9.0 would be to difficult this year. Crytek may get 90's on other sites but I get the feeling it wouldn't be so high on IGN and Gamespot if going by their new standards this year. -End of Line
this game will move around 5 million copies
Easily. Crysis + Warhead sold almost 5 million copies on PC.
I'll provide the source. Page 10: http://docs.google.com/view... But the N4Gtards will still disagree. Disagreeing with facts is all the rage here.
Crysis Already Impacted Games, In The Graphics Department
Agreed. Technically Crysis has definitely made it's mark in the gaming industry. And honestly, i dont believe it needs an 90.. even an 85 would be great.. I'm not too sure about the obsession the media has about review scores =/
Crysis made an impact on PC gaming. Most console only gamers have no clue what a Crysis is. Review scores might go a long way towards bringing those gamers in, but marketing will be a lot more important.
They can give it 4 out of 100, if the game is good their stupidity won't mar the game.
And gameplay department. The open nature of Crysis is incredible.
They had an average of 91 on metacritic with crysis. If it's as good as the original they should be safe.
A few "gifts" to our friend reviewers, an easy mode disguised as a normal mode, and shiny graphics are all you need!
Now a game needs good reviews to be a good game?
no it needs good graphics to be a good game these days... apparently.
Really? Like Halo Reach? Demon Souls? Brutal Legend? MAG? Portal? So true!!!/s It think people just need decent visuals good polish and a great smooth experience and they will be happy enough. Some games doesnt even got any of that but still manages to get a nice score. SAD FREAKIN WORLD!
CVG, move on people...
I'm not buying Crysis 2, at least not this year. There are way too many other games this year that have my attention. Plus I think sales would make more of an impact than review scores don't ya think?
Sales will affect sales, you're a genius bro...
No doubt it will get a 9 or even more, especially for PC.
What a load of s**t. 90% is an incredible game. 'An impact' is the game released and selling, heck, even getting reviews.
No it doesn't need good reviews if they get the marketing down and enough gamers are made aware of the game it will sell really well plus this game is a multi plat so i reckon it will do 3-4 Mil easy. Not forgetting they established a good fanbase on the first one PC gamers will definitely be getting it if they enjoyed the first one
85% em meta crysis. mark my words...
I think you mean KZ3
"I think you have to be 90 plus to make an impact in any genre now." Guy's not just talking about Crysis
360 gamers are gonna eat this up considering the lack of games for the 360 this year.
I think it could make it to 90+ based on the videos and articles Ive seen. Unless they do something pretty bad. I think they will definitely get sales since they have already established a large PC community.
Too bad todays consoles can't pull off Crysis. When Crysis came out on PC, that's when I gave up on PC gaming cause it was just ridiculous to try and rig a computer to try and run that game on really good settings ... cause running it on max wasn't even possible when it was released. Anyways ... if next gen Xbox comes out next (which I hope and it should) .. Crysis could be one of it's new releases along with that remake of Halo. On topic ... Can't wait to play Crysis 2. Day 1 buy for me.
Not true. New technology is new technology however you put it. A game could suck or be awesome. Technology is just progression of moving forward. In the eyes of the mass population I guess you would need pretty awesome reviews and a good amount of copies sold in order to make something popular.
EVERY developer should go into making games with this attitude. No matter how big or small the game, or platform..
I have preordered Crysis 2 Nano Edition on my PS3 for 90$ :D since I don't have a high end PC. I loved Crysis and Crysis Warhead when I had my gamingrig for around 1600$!! Was two great games
What happened to the rig? :/ It should still be able to play crysis2 pretty damn well
I sold the rig to the highest bidder hehe But if I can afford one rig this year around 2000$, then im going to buy Crysis 2 once more :)
You should get a copy for pc as well. You should be able to run it on the same that could run Crysis, If you dont have it anymore Youll just get Crysis 2 when you get a new computer. :) Ill be getting Ps3 version at launch and pc later on when I can afford a high end rig. My current pc is a laptop with Core 2 duo 2GHz cpu 2GB Ram. there is no actual GPU in this shit and it is my school laptop, meaning Im not free to install any software Id like myself on this crap. Especially not games. It is a Craptop.
I'm tired of people saying that it looks like sh** on console. It will probably look better than 95% of the games this gen. of-course it wont look as good as the pc but it will still look good!!
To stand out from fps crowd,90+ is a must.
Crysis 1 has a metacritic of 91 link; http://www.metacritic.com/g... crysis 1 was the best single player first person shooter i have ever played, hands down, second place would be halo 2, third would be crysis warhead, fourth killzone 2 hmmmm....they pretty much all clump together after that. the first FEAr is in there somewhere, doom3,
Halo 2? I think Halo, Halo 3, Reach were all better then Halo 2. I'm thinking Halo 2 is what got you into online gaming for consoles thus the fond memories.
and, horribly, probably a lot more hype
I liked halo 3, buy reach and odst were terrible imo, halo 1 was sweet, you may be right about the online, but halo2 i only played with friends and family online, which did make it awesome.
