Crysis 2 kills off 2 Multiplayer Character Classes

@XG247: We’ve been running around with our upcoming review of Crysis 2 for the past week and we thought we’d best shed up light on the death of a couple of character classes.

The story is too old to be commented.

Jesus, EA should have just delayed the game.

Shackdaddy8362802d ago (Edited 2802d ago )

Why? It looks great. And Crytek combining those two classes into one makes sense. They probably thought the shotty was too powerful a gun to start off with.

kaveti66162802d ago

looks don't mean anything.

Shackdaddy8362802d ago

Fine. It also plays good. Happy?

jjohan352802d ago

Wow that was the most pointless article. No reason to click on the link. The article summary on N4G contains most of the article lol.

MasterChief36242801d ago

"It also plays good. Happy?"

No, because it should be "plays well".

Grammar Police unite! :D

You haven't provided one good reason why they should have, FYI.

SilverSlug2802d ago

The demo was a disaster, it controlled bad and had tons of issues that EA pulled it before the full game.

Tachyon_Nova2801d ago

In future thats a good lesson devs should learn. If the demo you put out in a hurry to promote the game has issues, you have to delay the whole game.


OdinFallen2800d ago

What version controlled bad? I didn't find any major issues with the demo aside from latency issues during the kill cam. What are these "tons of issues" you speak of?

wissam2802d ago

Why did they removed the two classes in the first place.

Shackdaddy8362802d ago

They probably just renamed the demolitions to gunner and then killed defense cus they thought a the shotty was too opd for a starter weapon...

Killzone 3 should had the same treatment.

Infiltrators with shotguns and proximity mines are pretty anoying

dkgshiz2802d ago

@ mightyboot. You just have to have good eyes and try to look for the flash of red over their names. Not too hard.

--------2802d ago (Edited 2802d ago )

Agreed, it's really not hard at all - I find people just grab at things to complain about when they're not intelligent enough to counter it with simple common sense.

I don't even play as an Infiltrator and I can spot them easily. They're the guys with the flash of red over their heads, running from the enemy spawn killing your teammates.

I've got no problem whatsoever with the balance of the game - the people who aren't any good at it do. Not a generalization, just an observation.

Sorry to continue this part of the off topic thread but I felt I had to say it.

jjohan352801d ago

People who have a problem with KZ3 balance =/= people who aren't good at it. People who have a problem with KZ3 balance tend to be those who feel that KZ2 is a much more balanced and well-crafted game.

Danielmccue2801d ago

i always see people complaining about this.
if they actually played killzone 2 they would know that infiltrators come up as red dots on the damn radar.

Also you have to hold down melee to brtal melee it doesnt just happen.

xVeZx2802d ago

anybody have the original picture of what the 2 classes did?

PSWarlord2801d ago

I do agree with mightyboot about the proximity mines...lots of players just seem to be setting loads of em around their spawns den camping..I think personally you shouldnt b able to replenish proximity mines until you die or at least till the last one blows me up lol....But infiltraters are easy to spot keep an eye on radar and your know it them coz theres no dot!
On Topic- I may pick up Crysis 2 for the SP, the MP demo didnt really do it for me....but then again L.A Noire is out soon.
