The first reviews for Crysis 2 are pouring in and it looks like Crytek has a real hit coming. But is it better than Killzone 3?
Tries to take this exact claim as if it will the the be-all, end-all of the current reign of PS3 exclusive power. Soon they are forgotten about, relegated to the bargain bin. Meanwhile, PS3 exclusive after PS3 exclusive are continually talked about and compared to in the gaming community and the media, and even used as the benchmark when being compared against PC titles, no less. Crysis 2 will be a great game. But this whole "XXX is better than XXX" is nonsense. Why not just enjoy a game on its own merits? To consistently throw games against one another sure does exhibit some form of insecurity.
For some reason you won't see Xbox360 or Wii or PC games getting any comparison to each other. It looks like every PS3 exclusives are the peak to top this days.. But why am I not surprise?? Wanna bet that Uncharted3 will be compare to GeoW3 and Rage and batman and ridiculously probably even Skyrim or some other different genre, but you'll not see any comparison between themselves. Maybe just one or two article might just happen to make one, is nothing compare to the 100 competitions Uncharted3 is about to get. True @thereapersson, exclusive experience play a big part to all these comparison. Just watch this month and for the months to come. So far KillZone3 had been compared to Crysis2,Bulletstorm,Homefront, Battlefield...(Did I miss out any?I'm pretty sure I had and will continue to miss) That is like taking EVERY SHOOTER GENRE for a showdown! Funny you don't see Crysis2 VS Bulletstorm VS Battlefield VS Homefront. IT JUST NOT INTERESTING! No purpose, because EVERYONE who wants to play, will get to enjoy them somehow as long as you own any of the 3 platform! The Wii gamers wouldn't give a shit about it, as they bought the console for other reasons. Later on, all these games such as Crysis2,BF..... will soon to be forgotten, but you will still see KillZone3 VS *** out of no where until the next powerhorse PS3 exclusive shooter..
You won't, and don't feel awkward about not being surprised. Only PS3 exclusive games offer you an experience you cannot get anywhere else. Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Demons Souls... none of those games are on PC. If nothing else, you could easily validate the purchase of a PS3 for its exclusives alone. It's why I respect Sony so much for its continued strategy of supporting as many developers as they can. edit: lol @ disagrees from the sidelines why not come out and make a rebuttal against my statements? Oh wait, I see you realize that's a losing battle. That explains the nonsense... :)
I've seen many games compared with halo and call of duty..... I think killzone 3 is used in this case because it and crysis 2 are two beautiful looking games and have that in common
"Crysis 2 review: Better than Killzone 3?" As the saying goes: if you have to ask...
@ thereapersson You love the PS3 you need to relax.
@ thereapersson While it's true I have enjoyed playing these games on the PS3. I still wouldn't miss them if I didn't have the console. The only game I would probably want to play is uncharted, but that's it. I don't really care for killzone anymore. As for PC - The Witcher 2 - Dawn of War 2 - Starcraft 2 - Diablo 3 - Shogun 2: Total War - Probably SW: The Old Republic since it won't be pay per month to play. - Superior Battlefield 3 version. - Superior Crysis 2 version. - Red Orchestra 2 - Most of the multiplatform games are better on PC, just a matter of good controls. This is just off the top of my head, I'm sure there are more. PC has plenty of games to keep me busy, I don't need PS3 exclusives to enjoy it.
I game on my PC as well, so all those games you mentioned will all be enjoyed by myself at one point or another. I'm actually really looking forward to picking up Deus Ex 3 sometime soon. I should have specified that those who have an aversion to picking up a PS3, or those who only own a 360 are really missing out. Most gamers who own PS3's also own competent gaming PC's. Really, the PS3 and PC combo is all you need. The 360 has some good exclusives, but none of what Microsoft has shown in the past 6 months has proven that the 360 will have any sort of hardcore longevity that isn't Kinect related.
I can't take a reviewer seriously that starts by making a ridiculous comparison like Crysis 2 to Killzone 3.
I think crysis 2 is a better game, but in terms of graphics killzone wipes the floor with it (consoles only) I can't help but think crytek should have optmised it for consoles a little more... I mean, do we need to throw desk fans and shopping carts around? Driving sections are also clumsy and unnecessary... maybe they could have worked on the resolution and pop in instead?
The only people saying KZ3 wipes the floor graphically with Crysis 2 are...well you know.
It does not if you played both games. They are on par graphically because its two different art styles and Crysis 2 is actually doing most of its effects in real time. KZ3 is not. Give credit where credit is due.
Some huge games still to come this year. Waiting for my copy of Crysis 2 to arrive right now with in the hour. Judging by the beta, this game is a 10/10 for me. Some issues but ALL games have issues.
I'll just have to watch this 360 footage again. Is this really in REAL TIME. The water reflections at about the 6:20 mark on ward are ridiculous. I see a lot of similarities between this game and Halo Reach including interestingly enough the resolution.
Which every game you pick up you will enjoy in till BF2.
From the leaked beta I've played Crysis 2 has a better SP but Killzone 3 has better MP even if some of the classes needs balancing.
lol yeah some of the classes do need balancing for sure, come on who's the muppet that decided the marksman class should get an assult rifel i'm sick of jumping into a game where nearly all the players R sniping and for this reason it's put me off the mp side of killzone
I use the medic class I find it extremely fun to play myself.
Review this messed up is. Lol. Waiting the english websites reviews for. Lol
''Better than Killzone 3''. This review is gonna get 83984384894 hits 783 comments here Mission succesful
I don't think being better than KZ3 is all that hard to do. It got an 85 on metacritic because it's short has a lot of silly rail shooting and overly scripted set piece stuff, and the multiplayer is dumbed down from KZ2. It shifted it's formula towards the CoD format and given the success of that format it might be the right thing to do ultimately for a lot of middle-brow shooters looking to grow their audience. KZ3 is not some untouchable paragon of quality or even hugely popular at this point. It just looks really nice and fits into all the console war bullshit as a showpiece of graphics tech. Even there it is VASTLY over rated. Saying that it wipes the floor with other recent console shooters or that it is 3x better looking is nothing but dumb fan boy hyperbole that doesn't mean really much of anything except someone wants to praise it way too much to more easily tear down other games that are ALSO very nice looking. KZ3 is certainly a decent game and worth playing and owning but it's not "incredible" or all that "special" and it's not likely to change the FPS market much in any significant way. I just don't think Crysis 2 being better than KZ3 is all that unthinkable.
where are the articles for crysis 2 better than halo reach articles or even gears for example. its like comparing infamous to prototype all over again so much negative toward the ps3 all the time this type of articles just asking for hits thats all . they have nothing but to start flaim baits wars all of sudden these articles to be honest need to be stopped or even banned on n4g . peace out ?
"Crysis has 2 at all even to the most beautiful games on consoles." No doubts here , Crysis 2 is the best looking game ever.
LOL here we go again.. BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3 PS3 owners win no matter what. The more good games to play the better.
lmfao at the disagreez - guess people are thinking that crysis 2 is an xbox, no wait...... microsoft exclusive :P
see- for ps3 gamerz, we get to enjoy both, crysis and killzone.
edit - a disagree? lol for what? will i not enjoy kilzone or crysis? or are you guys disagreeing with BOTH GAMES ARE ON THE PS3? lmao
N4G - some weird people we have on this site. lol
Amen that's because they're blind fanboys.
Right. And this suggests that those "amazing" PS3 exclusives are being caught up to or maybe even surpassed by *GASP* those icky multiplatform games from lazy third party devs!
@ buho: I guess you're wrong somehow; let's see how insane the disagree are. Okay, either you're wrong that - the games are on the PS3 - PS3 owners win no matter what - The more good games to play the better Or - people who slam the disagree buttons are happy that they don't play more good games - or perhaps that the PS3 "loses" by having 2 powerhouse games - or maybe both games are not on the PS3 somehow, seeing that PS3 could also stand for Peanut-butter Sandwiches $3 and neither game is a condiment for that type of sandwich. Or - The people who hit disagree in this instance are completely and utterly jealous.
5 hours 30 mins til launch.
I realy dont understand why people take the bait with articles like this, if there even is bait to begin with. Both Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 are good games. PS3 fans like myself should be happy they can have both and Xboxers should be happy they atleast hav something worthwhile to play. Make love, not war. Ofcourse use protection if u gona take my comment literally. Lol
I agree, but I don't take the bait; I usually just comment in n4g while not giving the site hits.
Yep the reviews are just flooding in, we have seen a total of about 2 reviews. Yep the web is going crazy with all these reviews. Oh god the internet is slowing with all these crysis 2 reviews coming in, make them stop. /s
Em, at the end the reviewer says that Killzone 3 is (slightly) the better game. The title is misleading.
Actually, since the headline it asking a question, the question itself does not presume one game over the other; that's why people can get away with ridiculous statement within the confines of a question. I find it entertaining, almost clever sometimes when a website finally realizes this small workaround to include a loaded question as a title.
Funny how so many sites use PS3 exclusives (KZ3, GT5, etc.) as part of their review system. It just goes to show that the PS3 library is a standard against which many other games get measured.
they ask these type of questions, so that you 'fanboys' will give them hits. Kz3 was the benchmark as far as visuals go on consoles, Crysis2 set a new one. it's not a matter of exclusive or multiplatform. The developers and Engines do the talking.
Even a $5,000 cant run KZ3, the PS3 is the most powerful super console ever made in human history
Gosh, I hope the folk who agreed with you aren't serious.
Thanks for the laugh
As if we didn't know that this would happen. It's the same storyline for all FPS. Save earth. Every gaming outlet compares every FPS to KZ3. They never seem to compare FPS to Halo or COD aren't they suppose to be the best, because they sale more. That sholud tell you something. KZ3 has set the benchmark which is why you see all these articles about KZ3. I think it's a honor for gurrellia games, that so many want to top their game. I don't get mad when I see these articles. First KZ2 now KZ3, all i can say is keep up the good work Gurrellia Games.
I don't think anyone will be talking about KZ3 for much longer. LOL. The 15 minutes of fame and hype are pretty clearly over for KZ3. But you guys can start hyping up Resistance 3 at least.
Love how 360 elitists always act like PS3 players can't play the same exact FPS's that they can this year +2. Last time I checked...yup...Crysis is multiplat'. What Resistance 3 has to do with anything only you know.
Yeah... I don't like Resistance, but yep PS3 owner have a lot of Exclusives to be hype for this year. Unlike 360 only owners. I forgot you guys get hype over multiplat games. By the way the 15min of fame trophy goes to Kinect. It seems that the PS3 continues to outsell the 360. You have fun waiting on Gears 3 the only game worth having on the 360. It use to be Mass Effect but you can get that on the PS3.
wow you still don't know the difference between sale and sell. instead of spending money on video games you might want to invest in a book once in a while.
can't people just enjoy stuff for what they are without one having to be BETTER than another? Everything is down to personaly preference at the end of the day
Flamebait for sure, but in reality it's so damn entertaining.
killzone 3 would run on my wifes laptop
crysis 2 barely runs on the 360 and ps3, thats why they had to make it sub-hd at 20-30 frames per second with no anti aliasing, that said, it still looks damn good for a console game, much better than killzone 3
