An in depth examination of Crysis 2 by the BattleStrats staff. Spoiler free
think ill pass
I think it's at least worth the rent. Sure it's a FPS that could have been slightly better done but it's a nice change of pace from BO
I'd give the SP a 9.5/10 from what I've seen for its length and variety but the MP a 6/10 from what I've played (PS3 btw) for 6v6 limit, and obvious copy and paste of MANY COD elements. I'll pick up the game when it becomes cheaper because unless the game has a compelling 20+ hour story I'm not buying at full price if I find the MP trash.
I've been playing single player for a few hours and I'm hooked! I've mentioned in other posts about the nanosuit with cloaking abilities, super human jumping and strength. It brings a lot to the FPS table. It's a lot different than your run-of-the-mill war FPS games. It has a lot going for it.
Perfect score i gave it a 7.5 but this game is not that good!!!! PS3 exclusives still have the crown by far!!!!
crown of what? the best selling games this gen are all multiplat
he was probably talking about graphics and overall quality, variety..not sells (even if exclusives are selling well)
Crysis 2 on PS3 is more fun, more intense, and better looking than KZ3. KZ3 is just a standard FPS, it brings nothing new. Crysis 2 has stealth cloaking, multiple paths to the destination. KZ3 you basically run through specific buildings and find the exit. Crysis 2 you have an open field to go around enemies if you choose.
Have you played any KZ games?Your comment made me lol. You are trying to say everything in KZ3 is seen in other FPSs lol.
Ridiculous..(better looking ? lol..) KZ mp is way better (i can't compare sp for now)
I dont play sales numbers buddy i care less. If that was the case id buy me a wii but that would be a waste of my time and money. You ask the crown of what lol are u really asking that question? go check and see how many awards UC2 has recieved then come back to me. Go google and see what is proclaimed to be the best looking fps on consoles then come back to me and then go google and see whats the best looking console game everrrr then come back to me and then if u still not satisfied the year UC2 came out who won the most game of the year awards!!!! SMH thats alot of crowns!!!!!!
Your coming off as bias big time. I love uncharted 1 and 2 and I know it won awards, but how many did red dead redemption get? How many did Mass Effect get? how many did over rated Call of duty franchise get? also the wii sold most as system, but the software isnt there besides mario and wii sports, bad example. Its all opinions, there's a gazillion game sites out there and I can always find one that agrees with me, doesn't make it fact. what is proclaimed to be the best looking shooter is subjective as well, some are saying this game is the best. Do i agree? no. is Killzone 3 the best? no. you care less about numbers, ok don't let facts get in your way of having an opinion.
I dont usually critique reviews all too much since they are individuals opinions. But to dock the game for being too restricting is off base almost laughable. "It would have been nice if the gameplay was not quite as linear and gave players an option to experience New York City more fully" especially after reading black ops review, "the campaign is about as enjoyable an experience as a first-person shooter can bring" that game is a corrider shooter, and they are docking crysis 2 for being too restrictive? the openess is what separates this game from the rest of the FPS out there.
Crysis 2 is less restricting than say KZ3! KZ3 has you running through buildings, following a path. Crysis 2 has open areas where you can take on enemies from multiple angles or move around them. Complete BS review.
Of course reviews are subjective lol and your point? That did not make my point falacious at all and it still holds merit because although opinions ands tastes are subjective you cant hide the fact that when something it overwhelmingly favored or liked it holds weight to the claim. One site saying that game is good and another saying that game is bad wouldnt prove anything hundreds of sites saying that UC2 is the game of the year and the best game graphically on a console is a whole different story buddy so try again. Red Dead did not get as many awards as UC2 so pleas cut it out!!!!!!Next time come a little better with your argument as for kz3's metacritic review lol we all knw theres biased sitesssss and ppl that purposely put down bias reviews because they are paid or just fanboys the difference is im not getting paid for anything buddyyyy. Also how many biased reviewers took points off bcus of supposedly a horrible story line and unoriginal lol since Crysis has come out ive seen one site even mention that but the sites that tore Kz3 for that aspect didnt even mention it in Crysis talk about being biased lol yeah a guy in a nano suite fighting aliens is so original wheres my copy of portal at? lol hahahaha u guys are ridiculous
that post just gave me a headache. had to read a few times to try and see your point. You found 1 review that gave this game a low score and jumped all over it and your talking about how KZ3 has biased sites bringing score down. You are contradicting yourself. reviews cant be biased the other way around? I was also pointing out that other games are capable of being good, never said killzone 3 nor uncharted was bad, quite the opposite actually. What I am pointing out is your blatant fanboyism, and comment that sounds like you didn't play the game. You have officially brought nothing to the table. You wanted crysis to be bad because you are biased toward exclusives. and I didnt know there was an official count on how many awards each game got. How many awards did crysis 1 get? how overwhelmingly favored or liked was crysis 1? unoriginal? how is uncharted not indiana jones and tomb raider? how is killzone not halo meets world war 2? see what i did there? I love these games but not many stories are original these days
@ksoto Look, if you based on metacritic (which you guys do used now), generally people have been given ps3 games higher score than x360 (true), but possibly since PS3 does have more exclusives than x360 (if you don't count x360 and PC exclusives). UC2 is also a great game and thus recieve high praise. There is nothing to argue about that. But UC2 is not the game to end all game. There are many other great games out there (GTA, RDR, halo, ME, etc...) as well (if you consider yourself a gamer and not loyal to a certain console). But your problem is that now you said those same people, which have given better score overall to ps3 games, are bias. I only see this when, god forbit, a ps3 games get lower score than the fanboy's hypes on n4g. U guys also bash lens of truth as lens of lies, but recently been using it to say that what crysis has better texture and such. U guys are suffering from the same bias of which you were against or can't you guys see it? What i see is that you guys flip flop to whatever fit your agenda. That is hypocracy and simply, it is hard to have a legit debate that way. There is no credibility, if you even know what that means, with you guys. U aren't gamer, u are a tool and frankly, that what these corporates MS or Sony might needs.
@ksoto "the fact that when something it overwhelmingly favored or liked it holds weight to the claim" very valid point (hey it is according to the majority rules in debate, until it is proven) So as Ksoto, would it be the same when something is overwhelmingly unfavored or dislike, that it holds weight to the claim as well? Same rules same application. Then why this: "as for kz3's metacritic review lol we all knw theres biased sitesssss and ppl that purposely put down bias reviews because they are paid or just fanboys the difference is im not getting paid for anything buddyyyy" so now the majority are bias, and those claims doesn't hold any truth? So when all of them are praising UC2, they aren't paid, but if they bash something, they are? You are contradicting yourself my friend. Proof read what you write next time. And on a more logical side, shouldn't it be the other way around. You are more likely to be paid to say something nice than to be paid to bash something?
