Take the battle to the heights of the city's rooftops in this playable level from Crysis 2's multiplayer.
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.
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.
question: 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??
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! http://www.thatvideogameblo...
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..
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.
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.
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)
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.
how about you stop being a fanboy, and play the game first before you make any judgements
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.
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...
What schism20 said
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.
@HellzAssassin 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.
"Not by ALOT" That's funny. Get back to me when Sony delivers on the promise of 1080p 60fps.
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.
Are you kidding? Some of the gameplay videos running on consoles are truly stunning and can easily rival that of Killzone 3.
@shackdaddy836 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.
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...
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. http://www.thatvideogameblo...
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.
@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.
near enough a whole mag to kill someone :O !
Are you talking the part at 0:26? the guy was obviously spraying
I think thats just when they have the armor ability on. Otherwise its like 4 shots.
The game looks a ton better than it did in the beta I tried a while back.. Damn. They've 100% optimized that frame rate.
This is the beta.
No, That's footage from the demo that we'll get to play tommorow. :)
Definitely not Beta footage.
This is just what the Dr Told me to avoid if I want to be super liked by the gamer girls.
wow,it looks amazing,lighting is "unreal" Very clean too,is this really console footage? Looks way too clean
Am excited for single player since I loved first Crysis. I am worried however that this could be the worst camper multi in the making. I hope they take measures to balance the gameplay. I think halo reach does a good job with cloak taking away sound and messing radar up so people know someones cloaked. I hope it works different than crysis 1 in which it will drain faster especially when not moving. I hate campers, its why I prefer halo over any COD. if this game turns into COD with cloak, im all set, lets hope not.
I think you're going to have campers in any game but KZ2 had the cloak ability and I really didn't run into it that much. I guess in crysis 2 it drains your power? Thats a good trade off imo.
Wtf those FPs are shite! Bring Brink !
After seeing the 360 version I'm definitely going for the PC one. Was planning to get Crysis 2 on PS3 to play with friends but now I rather not, we'll just play Killzone 3 instead.
Maybe you should just bury KZ3 in your coffin with you since it's clearly the GOD game for half of the N4G community. If only they where actually playing KZ2 there wouldn't be so few players.
looks good, but not looking forward to it. getting killzone 3 and uncharted 3. i choose my multiplats very carefully. exclusives are my choice of games. we'll just have to wait and see if crysis 2 is half ass made or worth the purchase. multiplats are like that.
Yeah, because a game has to be exclusive to one platform to be good right? /s What a numpty.
Can't wait for the 360 version
Why is everybody so crazy about graphics? If you want to be amazed by good graphics then just wipe your glasses and look around yourself! If you have an Xbox 360 or a PS3 then just live with it! The PC version will look better and run better but come on, Crysis won't be the first FPS on consoles. I mean, you will get used to it. Instead of moaning about graphics, let's just hope that gameplay will be fresh and exciting.
ITS THE YOUNG GAMERS,I JUST WANT THE GAME TO BE VERY FUN
I think you are right.
Best looking Multiplat this until now. thats for sure. Im hyped for the demo that arrives at the 360 Marketplace tomorrow. Ironically Ill be getting this for PC and Ps3, not 360. Wonder what it looks like when its all maxed. Maximum game.
wow these graphics actually look good on console . unlike farcry 2 lol. yea it looked good but it was really washed out in the way that gta4 was.
