G4TV: Crysis 2 PS3 Multiplayer Hands-On

In an effort to generate some last minute anticipation for Crytek's high-powered, tech-tastic shooter Crysis 2, Electronic Arts gave a bunch of media folk the chance to (finally) check out the PlayStation 3 version of the forthcoming sequel this week during GDC 2011.

The showcase event included both the standard version as well as the 3D version of the game, three modes and three maps.

Its too late fro Crytek to convince me. They've been ignoring PS3 players for so long. Showing us nothing until last week and giving us the MP demo on the 15th... wayyy after everyone else.

Its like they think they have no competition and can do whatever the please. They should have been trying wildly to grab our attention. Screw them.

Pretty much. Makes me doubt its a good product on PS3.

I've been playing the 360 demo like crazy. I already have my PS3 version pre-ordered--but if the PS3 demo pulls a Red Dead Redemption (ie. looks like crap) I'm cancelling it.

I have the been playing the X Box 360 demo and let me tell ya it SUCKS. Laggy net code, terrible frame rate, incredibly large amount of texture pop-in etc. I have never seen a game with this much pop-in, it practically builds the map in front of your eyes (Pier 17 map especially). Whenever you die or watch a killcam the game does this weird spaz out zoom all over the place. The game is a friggin bugged out mess.

It is so much like Call of Duty that it is practially a clone. Imagine Black Ops with an invisible suit and that is Cryis 2. PS3 people should go with Killzone 3 instead, to be quite honest. It has to be better than this crap.

Xbox problem sounds like. PC runs perfect. PC has dedicated servers too.

limewax2841d ago

Nice to see 360 and PS3 fans coming together to call out a crap game. Your right though, 360 demo was awful, not just as a multi-plat but even older ones hold their ground better from a technical standpoint.

Pc fans are complaining a lot too. Its just sounding like they dropped the ball. If I ever buy crysis it will be the orginal now

Pixelated_Army2841d ago

Sorry but the reports are coming in that the PC version is also suffering from popin.

DEADEND2841d ago

Look as a PS3 owner I am really disappointed that it's taking so long to get a demo on the PS3 but look at it this way, at least we are getting a good solid game. The PC is where Crysis true fans are but they had to wait after the 360 beta, to be fair they should have had the demo on PC over a month before anyone else. As of right now all I care about is getting a solid version on the PS3 on the same day as the other two platforms.

Crytek have lost tons of sales from the PS3 consumer base and their arrogance will come back to bite them in the ass. They've over hyped their own product, and I'm positive it won't deliver on all of their promises...hell, it's already half proven that Crysis 2 isn't/won't be all it was hyped up to be - even though I wanted to be a great game, it'll be boring as hell, guaranteed.

If anyone who owns a half decent gaming rig sees this comment I'm sure they'll lose their minds and start defending it from every possible angle, probably mentioning DX11 graphics and how much their PC costs, as we see on every Crysis/Killzone article.

Either way, I'll happily be proven wrong, but I seriously doubt that will be the case.

Funny they show a vid with an xbox controller.

DaCajun2841d ago

That's because they were too lazy at G4TV to make a new video so they took that video from a previous article and embedded it on this one or whomever embedded it picked the wrong video, lol nice catch.

This looks pretty good. I'm confused on which system to get it for.

NiKK_4192841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

i don't think it matters much, it seems like pc isn't much ahead this time anyway, so get it for whatever, still gonna try it out on ps3 though

MGRogue20172841d ago

Same here. I don't know if I should get it for my PS3 or Xbox 360.

I'm pretty much waiting for Digital Foundry's face-off article comparing both versions of the game.. And then I'll purchase the one that performs & looks the best.

It's the best way to go about things when your a multi-platform owner imo

Another FPS, nothing special

Mr Tretton2841d ago

I'm very likely going to be cancelling my pre order. Interested in seeing some review first and playing the demo.

HelghastDrake2841d ago

the game is plain awful. Where to begin.. disappointing graphics, unsatisfying gameplay, crap controls, HORRID map design, i mean wow, if you think nuketown is a bad map on black ops wait until you play the crysis 2 maps. And overall the game is just not fun at all whatsoever.

The music is amazing though, ill give it that.
