Bryce Wilson of RipTen; "As RipTen (and the rest of the internets) reported a while ago, Crytek had slated an Xbox 360 exclusive demo for launch on the 25th of January that would allow players to sample the ‘Skyline’...
I have played HOURS of the beta...no problems getting into a game here. I would say that before you start posting videos and crying like a school girl that Crytek is bad and the world would be better off without them, that it's not your connection or Xbox 360 that is the problem...O_o
Your research consists of finding a post with 200 people...Really? How many of those 200 people couldn't get on-line and play the game? You seem to have some sort of agenda since I found it hard to believe you've NEVER got on line once...lol. Delete the beta and re-download it. Call your ISP. Call XBL...it doesn't sound like you've done anything but complain....Hmmmmm.
On-line gaming will always have issues regardless of the game you are playing. Is this beta without issues...NO...hopefully Crytek is learning every day and when the final product releases in a couple of months they would have a solution to any of the problems discovered during the beta...that's why it's a beta...lol...My only gripe, performance wise, is the hit detection. The graphics and game play is as good as it gets for this genre.
I've tried a dozen times or so since the demo came out and still haven't gotten into one single match. This is why I wish multiplayer-only demos would have bots or something, just so I could feel what it's like to play the game. I have had this issue before with multiplayer demos, not being able to get into a game at all. The Alien versus Predator demo gave me similar difficulties, the Lost Planet 2 demo did as well, it seems to be a problem for me. But the Crysis 2 demo is by far the worst. I have yet to get into a match at all, and it keeps freezing my console.
Use the wired ethernet connection. The wireless is the issue. I went from 100% freeze to 100% awesome.
This game sucks. Come over to my house and I will make you a lag sandwich. Demo is broken in many ways... Thank you demo for saving me 60 bucks!
Well, this is a demo. We can't expect too much from them.
I expect the world from everyone!
@Kreyg Really? This is a sign and people should take heed in purchasing this, its the first sign of whats to come. If they don't fix their demo what makes you think they'll fix their game?
1. Because people are paying for the full game and they have a reputation to build/uphold. 2. Plus they would likely have more than a week to patch the full game. 3. They won't be still making the actual game, and therefore they can devot more attention to fixing things.
This shouldn't be a problem for a demo though, Beta testing is for that not a demo/
Crytek doesn't have to fix things. They are Crytek. Even broken Crysis 2 is 2,000% better than 1,000% of games currently out. In fact it is not broken at all, your current gen systems merely can't handle it, that is just how it runs on inferior hardware. Crytek all knowing, hail Crytek. /end sarcasm.
I was getting ready to disagree with you so hard til I saw the /sarcasm . . .
sarcasm and global warming, making the world a better place.
Who ever claimed Crytek were Gods of the gaming industry? They're Pretty awesome but nobody puts them on that sort of pedestal. On the other hand, certain first party Sony Studios are treated like Infallable gods.
Don't buy this game.
your inferior hardware cant take it anyway.
The game lags and is buggy. I played it, someone down me with three shots from 80 feet away and the kill cam clearly showed the shooter missing me by 3 feet behind me. = LAG like no other game!
At times this game was un-playable.
Reminds me of Gears.
Hopefully the PC demo wont be so shoddy
I wonder if this thing even had a legit internal beta.
Well, that's gonna help sales. <.<
Judging a final game by its demo is not a good idea in my experience. I hated the Dead Space demo, but I loved the final game. But I waited 2 years until I bought Dead Space just because of the demo.
i didnt like the deadspace demo either and also waited along time to actually buy the game and it was awsome im currently on chapter 13 on deadspace 2
Seriously who cares? It's a demo not the box release and why would they put development time into fixing the demo when they can spend it on fixing the bugs in the final product? demo definition /de'moh/ 1. A demonstration of a product, often of an early version or prototype. A demo is a far more effective way of inducing bugs to manifest themselves than any number of test runs, especially when important people are watching.
guess crytek wasnt kidding when they said the best console version would be ps3 http://www.pcworld.com/arti...
thanks for the link hellz. HA HA!
If the demo is broken then it's a possibility the full game might be broken also. If that's the case no buy for me
I played the demo and it was no big deal. It's another typical FPS multiplayer. It felt like I was playing MW.
i have had no trouble getting into games
dont worry about the 360 version i wanna c how the ps3 one plays out keeping us fuckin waiting and if it turns out to be like Red Dead then i will shove the game so far up there fucking arse they wont be walking for a centry
in my opinion Crysis 2 is a gereric shooter like Cod and halo, overrated?
I thought the nanosuit added a lot. I preferred it to cod.
im going to pull a ps3fanboy comment a state: "my demo works flawlessly since day one" and "no problems here" you see every time some problem arises with a ps3 demo/game you get a flood of fantards in here claiming the game works and the author was an idiot. but not for crysis2, now it means people are canceling their preorder/"no buy for me". lol, and don't get me started on all the KZ bullshyt that floods crysis articles too, you don't see that insecurity from crysis fans flooding ZK3 articles do you?
I am able to run the demo using wireless now. I also changed my NAT to open, so that may have also been the fix.
ive had no problems whatsoever, so the demo obviously isnt broken. ive played dozens of games, racked up 100k+ XP, and am in the top few thousand on the leaderboards. has never frozen on me or dropped connection. if its not working for you chances are its something to do with your setup. the main reason its supposedly not working for most people in this thread is probably because they dont have a 360 to play it on, if you get my drift.
