Reminds me of a mix between Halo and COD just going by videos I've seen since there is no PC/PS3 demo to play =\

I think that's what the were going for and it's a bit of a fail.

That's what I've been saying .... it looks like a mix and Halo and COD.

But after playing it .... it's definitely more COD. This article may be right when saying it's a mix of COD and Crackdown.

Anyways.... I tried it this morning and thought it looked and played really good. Only complaint being the respawn points.

If you only own a 360 (like me) it's looks like a definite day one buy.

Ya. I dont think Crytec is purposely trying to skrew over PC/PS3.

There are a couple of reasons why there is no beta for PC/PS3.

1. 360 might be the worse of the three versions so they want to get that certain community hyped more

2. They might want to give PC/PS3 a demo after the Xbox 360's is over. Kinda like what DICE did with BC2 for the PS3. They definitely have enough time between the beta and the release date to give PC/PS3 a beta.

3. Since it is a beta and not a demo, they may just want to test their servers under a high load. This may explain the slightly worse graphics and lag.(Since there usually is a lot of lag and the graphics are usually turned down for that kinda thing) And Crytec may be planning a separate demo later on.

The Crysis 2 demo is meh... That's the best way I can describe it..

I can't download it. I went to download all the demos, and got Bulletstorm and some others, but Crysis won't download. A ring appears and spins forever. Has anyone else had this problem?

It's kinda meh....feels a lot like COD with a few twists put in with the suit powers but that's not enough to make it unique...oh well, back to BFBC2.

Maybe Bulletstorm will give me a break from regular shooters and get me recharged

^ after playing the Crysis demo, I tried BulletStorm.... the demo is telling me rental... wonder if the retail version is gonna be better.
besides releasing BS the same day as KZ. ... is just lol funny

jdktech20102706d ago

to each their own...I've played the demo 5-6 times and it's still fun trying to find new ways to kill. I'm getting KZ3, Bulletstorm and either Crysis 2 or Homefront

Just finished crysis 1 2day and wow! what an amazing game, shame its so short in length but at the price it is now who cares!

Honestly, even if I love Crysis 2's multiplayer, I'm mostly hyped for the singleplayer.

Crysis's SP was so much fun. I probably played it a dozon times trying different things out each run-through. If I even have half as fun with Crysis 2's SP as I did with the first one then I will be a satisfied buyer.
