When we see COD players are bored with black ops, maybe Crysis or KZ3 can be big surprises this year for gamers.
As a multiplatform title Crysis 2 has a great opportunity to make the difference against Black Ops.

Pixelated_Army2614d ago

Seriously though MW2 had me playing non-stop for well over a year but with BlOps... I reached that point last week. It's only been three and half months! I sold my copy and haven't regretted it one bit.

I loved mw2! I never ran into bad hackers or game breaking glitches so it was a very fun game for me. Black ops on the other hand, i was scared to buy. so i played it at my cousins and am glad i didn't. It has the same feel as [email protected] and i didn't like that game either. What i'm waiting for is another fantastic game that will have the same effect cod4 or halo had on the multiplayer.

MintBerryCrunch2614d ago


whats the difference between the two factions?...they both look the same...SP has an alien invasion as far as i know, why no MP aliens??

kudakadere2614d ago

For me i feel the same way , one of the reasons being that i miss the Mw2 call outs "ENEMY AC130 ABOVE , WE ARE DONE" and the Op-for's tactical nukes incoming call too and all the maps were legendary compared to Blackops "intervention no scopes i once hated them but i learnt to love them ,you can't do that with Black ops.

I just read that the MP in Crysis 2 is only 6v6 players. I surely hope that is only for the consoles and the PC has higher player counts. 12 player games can barely be called MP (it gets really boring killing and being killed by the same people over and over). And I thought Black Ops was a joke with only 18 players. Looking forward to a real MP experience with a game like BF3. That game should be epic!


LOLOLFFSA2614d ago

Even that I do not care shit about how many players there can be in a online game on pc I do think that there can be more. It's just pure logic since it is a PC. On consoles, I think it could be a little more but since the MP maps from what I heard are small, I think 6 vs. 6 is good.
Can't wait <3 Video looks way too awesome..

MidnytRain2614d ago

Developers could take a lesson from Insomniac. Throwing in more players will not somehow make the game better. Balance is extremely important in multiplayer shooters in order to create a satisfying experience. Look at UC2; the matches in that game have only ten players. But it's mostly balanced and very rewarding. I personally like small player count. It makes the matches more personal and it is less likely that random deaths from across the map will happen.

hoops2614d ago

More does not equate being better ESPECIALLY for multi-player FPS games.
How many games have turned into frag fests left and right because of too many players? Too many I might add.

HolyOrangeCows2614d ago

Glad to see that the screen tearing has been reduced, but it's definitely still there.

The graphics on the 360 look... good?
Can´t see it too much (not really HD)

thor2614d ago

TBH I think it's going to look like a standard console game. It's no Killzone 3 or Uncharted 3. A city environment with static, flat buildings for a backdrop is naturally going to be a lot less demanding than the environments we saw in the original Crysis.

Schism202614d ago

how about you stop being a fanboy, and play the game first before you make any judgements

HellzAssassin2614d ago

On consoles, I agree with you. Crysis 2 won't be as graphically powerful as KZ3 or Uncharted 3, but the PC version of Crysis 2 will surely surpass both games. Not by ALOT but it will be better in terms of graphics./

Regarding the multiplayer of Crysis. I never really liked Crysis' multiplayer. Both Crysis and Crysis Wars were not good. But I did thoroughly enjoy the campaigns for both and played them 3-4 times :D. I hope Crysis 2 changes my opinion.

Shackdaddy8362614d ago

Wow you people are annoying. Do you HAVE to come into every article about Crysis 2 and say that?

You've barely even seen Uncharted 3...

ABizzel12614d ago (Edited 2614d ago )

I think it looks good. I think it suffers from lack of art style which is why I prefer Killzone 3 graphics over this.

This is only one map and one video, but if you look at Killzone 3 there's a ton of other stuff happening, and in Crysis it's pretty bare.

I think Crysis 2 will be a good game, but I'm just looking forward to Killzone 3 more.

@At everyone else

People compare the two, because they're the best. That's what happens when you hold the crown. PC games will look better than consoles games for the most part, because there's no set amount of tech inside them. So excluding them, when it comes to consoles it's nice to see who the graphics kings will be for the year.

2006- Gears of War
2007- Uncharted Drake's Fortune
2008- MGS4/Gears of War 2/(Uncharted Drake's Fortune was still #1)
2009- Killzone 2/Uncharted 2/
2010- God of War 3/GT5 at it's best/(Uncharted 2 & Killzone 2)
2011- There are a bunch of contenders. Killzone 3, Crysis 2, Rage, Uncharted 3, The Last Guardian, and you can add whatever else you think should be on here.

It's not the be all of things to discuss in games, but it's nice to recognize people who make these games look the way they do, if it wasn't then there would be a GOTY award for best graphics.

What on earth are you smoking...

"On consoles, I agree with you. Crysis 2 won't be as graphically powerful as KZ3 or Uncharted 3, but the PC version of Crysis 2 will surely surpass both games. Not by ALOT but it will be better in terms of graphics."

Am sorry I have no time to sit here and pretend the PS3 is nearly as powerful as a modern gaming PC it's simply not.

Crysis 2 on the PC will piss on both KZ3 and Uncharted 3 graphically and am sorry but that's just FACT.

LunaticBrandon2614d ago (Edited 2614d ago )

"Not by ALOT"

That's funny. Get back to me when Sony delivers on the promise of 1080p 60fps.

Ryudo2614d ago

The PC version of Crysis 2 will surely surpass Pong and Pac Man. Not by ALOT but it will be better in terms of graphics.

VictoriousB132614d ago

Are you kidding? Some of the gameplay videos running on consoles are truly stunning and can easily rival that of Killzone 3.

dontbhatin2613d ago


i have actually seen uncharted 3 more than crysis, and personally it looks much nicer than crysis 2 on the console. it deffinitely will look alot more gorgeous on the pc. i just have a feeling that crytek could have made it look much nicer on the ps3 than it does on the 360, if they actually tapped into the ps3's power, but of course they probably didnt. like every multiplatform game.

Heartnet2613d ago

Hmm yeh Graphics look good but not so far as to congratulate em on it xD

Looks like a standard CoD meets Halo FPS tbh.. halo since takes long to kill and invisibility and shiz and CoD since weapons might as well be the same xD

Looks like a ton of fun. I cant wait to play on PC!

The guy playing has to learn that if you shoot while in cloak your energy completely drains. It would have saved his life at 00:57.

PS. IDK what people are talking about with the sound thing. It sounds fine to me...

Agent-862614d ago (Edited 2614d ago )

I, too, was going to get this game for PC, but I just read that it only has 6v6 players in MP and now I'm really questioning if I should get it. 12 players in a modern shooter? And I thought Black Ops was a joke at 18 players.


Shackdaddy8362614d ago

Its pretty obvious that PC will have mod tools though because of their love for the mod community(devs comment on the mod forums all the time). So give it a month after release and there will be 64 players with a couple of maps to go with it.

Agent-862614d ago

@Shackdaddy836, I hope you are right because I was looking forward to this game. My true salvation, though, will be BF3 because I have a good feeling that the game is going to be truly epic. Hopefully, it'll be a BFBC2/BF2 combo: BF2 sized maps with 64 players, more classes and plenty of vehicles (including jets) plus BFBC2 style destruction.

LiLTich922614d ago

near enough a whole mag to kill someone :O !

JohnApocalypse2614d ago

Are you talking the part at 0:26? the guy was obviously spraying

Shackdaddy8362614d ago (Edited 2614d ago )

I think thats just when they have the armor ability on. Otherwise its like 4 shots.
