According to the Crysis 2 blog at EA, Crytek is working to resolve technical issues with the demo that a few players are having on Xbox 360.
I guess technical issues only covers the matchmaking/connection issues and not the lack of AA, pop-in and other such issues :/
...and the fact that the guns sound like toys, the melee/assassinations are horrible looking, the graphics are very mediocre and the death animations are completely broken (getting shot from the front and flying forward). For as much as they hyped this game and talked about the competition, based on the demo, they have a lot of ground to make up to be anywhere near the level of Halo, Killzone and Call of Duty.
Game runs pretty smoothly though, no tearing or nothing.
says the guy with a killzone avatar ..... a game that has all of those problems on top of downright boring and bad first person shooter gameplay.
I love the demo so far. Shame there is only one map, but I have had alot of fun with it.
I played the demo a few times and so far have classified this game as a $10-$20 buy! I hope they can do enough to make me want it right away, but it probably won't happen.
@socomnick "says the guy with a killzone avatar ..... a game that has all of those problems on top of downright boring and bad first person shooter gameplay." Killzone 2's guns sounded like toys? Really? Killzone 2's graphics were mediocre? Really? Killzone 2 had great gameplay and had some great sections that broke up the gunplay. The mech section was great. Defending the station with the homing missiles was awesome. The mounted machine gun sections were top notch. To each his own though. I just think Crytek should keep other video games and companies out of their mouth if this is the game about which they're bragging.
Has anyone checked out the 3D options of this on Xbox?
It was disabled for me..
Well I tried to put it on 3d but I don't think the demo supports 3d glad to see crytec is looking to fix up the demo kinda shows they r backing there game up good to hear sofar its a blast for me
Yes I have and there was ridiculous crosstalk on the default stereo setting of 50, I had to turn it right down to 10, and then the 3D effect isn't that great... A shame as they kept banging on about how great the 3D on this game was going to be, maybe it will be better on the PS3, if it is then that will be the version I buy. Those saying they couldn't turn 3D on, then you don't have a 3D TV or you haven't enabled it, you're not missing much on the 360 though. Tested on an LG 42" btw.
Do you think that's because of the game, the hardware, or your TV?
I wonder if they are talking about the connections in the game. Every game I have tried to play has me with full green and everyone else at yellow or red. I don't notice it lagging really badly but that has to be doing something to the gameplay. Might explain why some people appear to be bullet sponges.
Armor mode lets you take ALOT of hits, I mean alot. And armor mode doesn't protect you well for the first couple of seconds you turn it on. If you leave it on, you are easier to hit (looks like it halves your movement speed) but you can take quite alot of firepower. If no armor mode is on, depending on you using a pistol, rifle or light machine-gun or sniper, it's only 1-3 hits to the head to kill.
It's not that because when you shoot someone who has the armor on you can see the armor kind of flaking off when you shoot them. I'm talking about people that can take an entire clip and then when I watch the kill cam the bullets seem to be passing right through them. Stuff like that.
@BeaArthur That's just bad host. When I had a room with 3-4 bar people, the game was QUITE solid. Just got to hope you connect to someone in your country AND hope they have something more than just DSL or shitty cable.
the only problems i had, had to do with the game freezing after i got into a match. 3 out of 5 matches i tried ended up freezing up.
the vids look 2 me, really bland. not much going on in the background etc... guess i'm 2 used 2 kz2. Smoke, explosions, lightning, etc. idk, it is just a demo. but seems like "dated" fps gameplay imo.
Mainly because Crytek is used to create PC games, so the console versions will look very meh.
Try and play the demo, you can see shit flying around. Not only that, this is a secluded rooftop map...
vids dont do the game justice it looks great considering its running on 360 the only problem i find with the game is the spawning i keep spawning on the same spot of the map
Why does everyone on N4G spell "Lighting" as "Lightning"? Its really common.
There are alot of illiterate kids here who can only spell a few words including but not limited to: Sony till i die and xshitty and gaylo.
@belasco I actually meant lightning. if you have played kz2, it has a s"%t load of lightning in it!
You actually made me laugh on that one, bubbles
It's actually a really common trend which I've begun to see. It's not only exclusive to N4G but sometimes even from actual developers themselves. English standards have gone down the shitter.
I played the demo aint had no issues, but the game takes some getting use to its very refreshing
If you've played Call of Duty then you shouldn't have any problems adjusting to this. The controls are almost an exact clone.
There are plenty of games with generic FPS controls and that's not always a bad thing
Been there, done that, Meh!!! Next...
Is this still coming to the PS3 because I havent seen anything for the PS3 version yet unless I'm missing something...if anyone wants to point me in the right direction
Freezes for me right before I can get in the game. Every damn time...
I don't know how I got the disagree's. I have a strict Nat.
I don't have a strict NAT and it still does that to me. I have no idea what the fucking problem is but it's pissing me off.
Still haven't gotten to play it yet.
I played a few matches and loved it. I've been having a few connection issues, but honestly not disappointed in Crytek. Only the second day of a multiplayer demo, bound to have some problems here and there.
Sorry Crytek but I think the Rage engine might have you beat.
the only problem i had with the beta last night was it took about 5 minutes to find a match the first time. after that, it ran nigh on perfect. had the odd lagging problem, but hey, thats what the beta is for - so they can find these problems and fix them. i honestly dont know how you PS3 fanboys can keep a straight face when saying Crysis 2 doesnt look anywhere near as good as Killzone 2/3. the graphics are incredible. the lighting is much more REALISTIC than killzones, the motion blur looks brilliant, and texture work is 10x more detailed than Killblur 2s. theres also no 200ms of input lag like there was in KZ2, and it remains to be seen if there is any for KZ3. take a look at this video and try and say its graphics arent awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watc... best looking console game to date, and its only a beta. cannot wait for the full version.
has the wireless issue been fixed?
