Crytek has confirmed to CVG that Crysis 2 will not feature co-op play, but claimed that a "beefy" campaign will help make it a must-buy for FPS fans.
Calling your campaign beefy still doesn't make up for a lack of co-op...
At least it's better than having no online co-op and a generic 5 hour campaign like some other games.
At least the generic 5 hour campaign shooter has co-op full stop
Now you're just being desperate, Delbert.
if it also has no online coop also. LOL PC fanboys and their "open" world Crysis 2. Please, its as open world as MGS4. Give the player 2-3 paths to the objective and make it seem you can go wherever you want. But you know what? MGS4 will probably be better than this game LOL
Wait...did I miss something? Since when was co-op expected for crysis 2?
I was also thinking this
I'd almost think the game would be too easy with coop considering all the power your suit gives you lol. The enemies would be crapping themselves at the sight of two suits.
Unless you want to end up like that mysterious "black" guy in Resistance who not only helps out in the campaign but is oblivious to the storyline. If you place co-op, then it must have some relevancy to the storyline. @O_M It's the Vanquish effect again. Seriously, these bloggers should stop posing "tallied" game time as real time at the end of game because it results into idiotic statements like the one you're responding to. -End of Line
Yep, it damn sure doesn't. I knew it wouldnt have campaign online co-op due to the limitations of the PS3 & its split memory. This will always be the case with multiplat games. Proof Bulletstorm: There is no reason Bulletstorm doesn't have co-op when Gears has some of the best co-op in history. If it isn't cell-shaded or looks ugly as hell, said game will never be co-op online for the PS3, period!
Resistance 3 and Socom 4 will have online co-op!!
Like the guy above said SOCOM 4 has online coop. If the first party devs for the PS3 decided to downgrade to Halo Reach graphics then adding online coop will be a breeze. Gears and Halo aren't benchmarking anything so its easy for the engine to render several average looking models in an average looking world, with nothing going on in the environment.
@otherZinc LoL these games beg to differ: Uncharted 2. Borderlands. Killzone 3. Resistance 1&2. So now go back to your cave and think of a better way to troll.
@ cemelc 1. Uncharted 2 doesn't have online co-op that is apart of the same single player campaign. "Thanks to games like Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Gears of War, online co-op gameplay has become an almost obligatory bullet point for modern action games. Naughty Dog has chosen to respond to the trend in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in a way that's slightly different than usual. Rather than shoehorn a second player into an experience already crafted for solo adventure, it's creating a separate side mission designed specifically with two to three players in mind." http://www.joystiq.com/2009... 2. Are you saying Borderlands is on the same graphical level as Killzone 3? Don't think so. Also note that Otherzinc said: "If it isn't cell-shaded or looks ugly as hell, said game will never be co-op online for the PS3, period!" and guess what... Borderlands is cell shaded. 3. Killzone 3 has offline split-screen co-op. Much easier to program and implement offline splitscreen co-op than it is to have online. 4. Resistance 1 again has offline splitscreen Co-op, not online. Resistance 2 has co-op separate from the initial online campaign. Also again, are you saying the Resistance franchise is on the same graphical level as Killzone? I don't think so. You missed Otherzinc's point. Clearly and failed at countering his argument.
well coop even when just shoe horned in is good fun, if Halo Reach can do it and pull it off very well why cant this or Killzone 3? I reckon the SP of crysis 2 was always gonna be better than Halo Reach's or Killzone 3's though
KZ3 does have a co-op campaign albeit it's split screen only. They may one day patch it in but I doubt it. Halo Reach also had the issue that you required a HDD for co-op (is this still the case?), so I wouldn't exactly say that they pulled it of 'very well'. Factor in that both KZ3 and Crysis are a lot more taxing on the hardware they run on, it's much harder to fully implement co-op without there being any kind of compromises. Essentially what I'm getting at is that it's not just a case that if they can do it why can't we. There's so many more variables at play.
well no cause Halo Reach pushed the 360 to breaking point and Bungie still managed to fit it in, and all the reviews said the coop was implemented brilliantly never mind just 'very well'
I thought there was only one dude with a nano suit
If you played Crysis 1 you'd know that nano suits are very common, even the north koreans had them.
Nanosuits are, but not Nanosuit 2's
No Co-op no purchase. I was already Highly disappointed by the online multiplayer 6v6 matches. You couldn't atleast have 24 or 32 players? 6v6??? FUUUU.
yeah No Co-op no purchase. ill get it used later maybe but no coop makes me not care
Did you expect co-op or something? Anyways, I heard the campaign was like 14+ hours so while you try to find a co-op game, I will be busy with an awesome campaign. :)
I wasn't expecting co-op however that would have made me buy the game despite only having 6v6 Online multiplayer. No co-op and only 6v6 online means No sale to me.
It's kinda strange to me that someone would write a game off without waiting to see what people say :s Anyway, aren't you turned on by a 20 hour campaign? That's kinda rare from an FPS game these days.
I played the first crysis on my PC long campaign it was great. But I felt it was missing co-op and a online multiplayer component. And it was. Now they got Crysis 2 with only 6v6 and no co-op? Come on its 2011 not fricking 1998. I'll be getting Killzone 3, Battlefield 3 and Gears of War 3 for my shooters this year.
Crysis 2, pushing consoles to the max with no coop and 6v6 COD multiplayer.
DelbertGrady and gillri sound like little kids. as far as the crysis2 co-op? so what.......if the SP is fun, i don't see the big deal with not having co-op.
I'm sorry but a co-op mode should be standard nowadays. Be it co-op campaign or a separate co-op based mode (Horde, Zombies, Firefight, Spec Ops etc.)
Was there ever speculated about a Co-op? I don't recall that.. not that i need it, it has Multiplayer and probably a great single player. That's all i need.
The campaign is indeed fairly beefy. I'd say I got 9-12 hours out of the BETA. Although much of that was spent just looking at the sheer visual majesty. Regardless of what anyone thinks of the campaign as a whole, it's worth it alone for the Grand Central Station mission.
No co-op? A lot of these new games are not including co-op and its becoming annoying.why do we pay 50+ a year for xbox live then? To just sit in an xbox live party full of silence just to listen to people breath while they are focused on the beefy campaign? I don't know about the rest of you but I don't wanna pay 50+ to play singleplayer games online I can do that offline just fine.people want more than 6v6 multiplayer, they want [email protected]!
i saw the coop thing in the flowgraph of cryengine 3 in a tech video, so hopefuly we PC players will get the coop mod.
Crysis 2 (PS) review mode - No-coop but - awesome campaign - Mediocre 6vs6 MP - but awesome campaign - shaggies all over - but awesome campaign 10/10 KZ3 (PS) review mode - Better controls than KZ2 - but shitty campaign - Coop-campaign - but shitty campaign - Best FPS GFX - but shitty campaign - Better sound than KZ2 - but shitty campaign - awesome MP - but not like COD or Halo and....shitty campaign 7/10
Who cares? Neither of those are bad scores. Crysis 2 will probably get 7s. Should it impede on your enjoyment of either game? No. Both games are good. Play both, enjoy both.
I remember reviewer taking points off for Killzone 2 because it had no CO-OP. Let's see those hypocrites reviewer suddenly change their standard again.
LOL good one. 6v6 Multiplayer is Maximum Fail. If it had atleast 24 or 32 I would have bought the game but there's no getting past 6v6 that is terrible for this day an age.
Can you even begin to possibly imagine the clusterfuck that would take place is it was 12 v 12?
It would be nice to have no doubt but co-op can be annoying as somebody else can go on ahead and trigger a set piece or just generally be an ass and take all the best weapons.
To all the people saying this should have co-op, use your brain. The main focus of the game is that you are the only man who can save the earth. So yeah, co-op would probably be a bad idea story wise.
Yeah i mean is not like Prophet, Nomad or psycho are alive or anything /s Play crysis 1, before talking of something you dont know.
Hahahahaha. How do you know they are alive? Crysis 2 is three years after the original as I'm sure you know, they could easily have been killedor even left the military in that time. Oh by the way, Crysis is my favourite game ever, and I've finished the campaign 7 times. Edit: While its obvious that Prophet will be a part of the game, it's equally obvious that he wont be in it for the entire game. I would be completely opposed to them altering the games story simply to accommodate a feature at least 90% of people don't care about.
