these was a good article and good know i might buy the PS3 Version
I still don't care about the game and I still hate Crytek. They're still shitty developers that overhype their games and Killzone 3 is still the better FPS.
You mention Crysis 2 as being an over-hyped FPS, then you proceed to mention Killzone 3. Good job.
IDK why people are disagreeing. There is a "KZ3 is better" comment in every Crysis article. If thats not over-hyped IDK what is (Regardless of how good the game is)...
Personally, I would take the gameplay of Crysis 2 over Killzone 3's gameplay any day. Killzone 3 is the same old whack-a-mole shooting gallery we see in a lot of shooters. Enemies suddenly appear, then they take cover behind various blocks and other objects, then they alternately expose themselves to shoot at you, giving you an opportunity to shoot them. It's like waiting for the moles to pop up in Whack-a-mole so that you can hit them with your hammer. I find the gameplay in Crysis much more dynamic and enjoyable. On top of that it looks better than Killzone 3 and is more visually interesting to me.
There's also a "Crysis 2 is better than Killzone 3" comment in every Crysis 2 article! Not to mention, there was many of the same comments in every Killzone 3 article back in Jan-Feb! Selective memory much?
KZ3 was only overhyped on N4G, Pandamobile had to disagree with you this time eventho you didnt say it i knew what you meant
"Killzone 3 is the same old whack-a-mole shooting gallery we see in a lot of shooters." What do you call a shooting gallery where the enemies stand in the open and run into each other for no reason at all, and then when they decide to get smart for a few seconds you hit cloak and they forget you exist? It might not be the same old thing, but it sure sucks a lot more.
when ANYONE tries to talk about Crysis/Crysis 2 AI in any positive light...its nothing more than humorous... they have apparently fixed nothing with the AI problems of Crysis 1...which was dated and gimmicky even by 2007 standards...let alone now... If you criticize killzone 3's AI...you are simply criticizing linear gameplay...because killzone 3, and killzone 2, has just about as good AI as any shooter can have...and still be manageable...you don't like enemies taking cover?...you don't like enemies communicating with each other, distracting you while another tries to get a better angle on your position?...that is fine and great...but don't say thats 'bad AI'...the very opening scene of crysis 2 has countless videos on you sneaking up and killing an enemy RIGHT NEXT to another enemy...and the second doesn't even notice his dead friend next to him?...seriously...that was old over 10 years ago...
@truth I have not seen comments like that as much as KZ comments but I have still seen a couple so based on my comment above I would say that Crysis 2 is over-hyped as well. Keep in mind though that it isn't as hyped on N4G as KZ3 but that makes sense seeing as this site is comprised primarily of PS3 gamers. @bubble I agree, the only other place that I hear about KZ3 as much as the fansite is here on N4G. Other than that, it isn't as hyped as some people perceive it to be.
and you still saying BS and loosing bubbles.. lol
is a great game but im not getting into the multiplayer side of the game so im trading it for crysis 2 and ill do the same with that if it doesnt do any better.
agree.... dont know what GG do with KZ3. KZ2 MP was waay better. The SP in KZ3 is better.
"Why the f*ck would you return Killzone 3? [email protected]" Ur not an open-minded person huh?
@own How is returning a game qualify into "fanwars". Your two sentences counteract each other...
The MP is shitty IMO. 6v6 and obvious COD ripoff elements in it like copy and paste killstreaks. Enjoy it though, if you don' like KZ3's MP thats fine.
@DangerTick yea...too bad its not
Im eating crow on this, i plan on picking the game up once i have space in my backlog.
i got the ps3 version, (aka the superior version on the superior console) its awesome. Lovin the MP
You were one of the idiots that trolled every Crysis 2 article saying it sucked and Killzone 3 was miles better. Way to change your tune. http://n4g.com/news/712241/...
@ HelghastDrake: Minus bubbles for trolling and the versions are essentially the same.
Do not punish someone for having his moment of clarity.
IGN we are threw
Don't you mean through? Threw means you tossed something. Oh wait, your icon explains everything. Wow, I guess the people who disagree don't know proper grammar either. As for the icon, I have no idea who that is but I'm guessing it's a hip hop artist and they're not known for proper English.
Thanks for enlightening us on the definition of "threw".... 2 points for you.
ElementX, you don't know hiphop then. Biggie is a musical icon, if you wasn't stuck behind your xbox all day and all night, you'd learn something.
Sorry, I play PS3! Haven't played 360 in over a month!
@ ElementX : It's called a typo - happens all the time in forums. Quit with the intellectual masturbation.
dude this just shows your more of an idiot then i thought just wow dude
bow and kiss the ring
Crysis 2 is alright for a FPS, even good. I got it for the PS3 but it's not Killzone 3 good. Sorry.
give it up my friend and build those bubbles back up by talking sense
haha great comment ownallconsoles, you deserve some bubbles:-)
Crysis 2 plays much better than KZ3. I love the nanosuit with stealth, super human abilities, multiple paths to the destination. It's more colorful, vibrant, and appealing than KZ3. I'm tired of run and gun, duck behind cover games. At least Crysis 2 gives you the option of using a stealth suit to sneak up on enemies. It really brings a lot to the genre. As I said before, the areas aren't straight A to B maps like KZ3. You can go around enemies if you want, jump over obstacles, there are many more options.
well said dude! Crysis 2 is a good game in its own right...
Good article. I wouldn't be surprised if both versions of the game end up with Metacritic scores over 90.
I suspect the PS3 Blogspot amateur gaming journalists will get together and put out some 6/10 sabotage reviews eventually and get that average down a bit. And some Crysis fan blogspot amateur gaming journalists and 360 fan blogspot amateur gaming journalists will counter with 10/10's. It'll look like a ping-pong match. ----------------------------- ------------ @Blackburn 5 (below me) Yeah I agree. PS3 ports are usually not bad. Even the Bayonetta and Ghostbusters ports were pretty playable. This is a lot of silly chest thumping about minor graphical differences AT BEST. Likewise the 360 version of FF XIII didn't really look bad either.
Again how many times....Crysis 2 is not a Port...hard to do some research? Crytek has showed how they made it and said it this since they announced CryEngine3 and Crysis 2...it has been build seperate and at the same time using the CryEngine3(which also has been specially optimised for each console)...that's why it looks incredible on each console...perhaps the best looking multiplatform...forget the old port stories that time is over...these 3rd party developers now know how to make games for the PS3 Hardware Architecture...Crytek is class. i admit the ports in the past were a shame...but that's not the case here.
Everyone exaggerates. PS3 multiplats are usually not as bad as the fanboys say. I have several multiplats and they all play just fine.
Excuse me, but Killzone 3 has nothing to do with this article or conversation. For the record, both are great games. Crytek did a good job with the Playstation 3 version of Crysis 2. Much better than I originally thought they would. If anything, it's the PC version that was gimped.
Crysis 2 is a 7.5 at best wayyyy overhypedddddd and kz3 eats this gme up anyday seriously. I bought it yesterday and wish i could return it. Its good, but not great and nothing makes it stand out. I will say it again i played Crysis 2 for about 25 min yesterday then downloaded my socom 4 beta and started playing for hours and never looked back to Crysis. I bet you one person can not say with a straight face that this game looks better then kz2, kz3, GOW3 and especially unachrtd 2 not even close smh the lies u hear on here. The game is good just not great!!!
I havent played Crysis yet, but KZ3 is not that good. If you say that Crysis is worst than KZ3 then I might not buy it. However, I usually do not trust the opinions of most people in N4G because most of them are sony fanboys with agendas. (not implying u r one of them by th eway)
Killzone 3 is a 5 maybe a 6. It's killzone 2 with a castrated multiplayer. And Kz2s multiplayer was pretty bad. Says volumes.
"It's killzone 2 with a castrated multiplayer." lol. i feel it like this
something smells in this cave:-)
Take off your fanboy glasses play both and it will be proven. Its as simple as tht smh
The game is great on both consoles. The PS3 does some things better and the 360 does other things better. This is something that people have to accept and live with. Because in the end they are both the same.
KZ3 and Crysis 2 is not the same game. If they were so similar, I would get only one of them. I will be the happy owner of BF (all), CoD (all), KZ (all) and Crysis (all). No need to trash the one because the other one is different. I enjoy them all.
Wow why everyone keep saying kz3 is Better they are 2 different games. Should be intresting to see how well this games sells on both consoles and the pc. I think the 360 version will sell the most as everyone seems to buy fps games for the 360 and I wonder if crysis 2 will sell more than kz3 on the ps3? I also wonder how console release of this game will affect pc sales.
Its fair for people to compare 2 FPS games. Of course they are 2 diff games or else you wouldn't have anything to compare with. I have both games, and so far from my experience, Crysis 2 single player mops the floor with Kz3 in both length and fun factor. I can't judge MP because I haven't played enough of it yet, but Kz2 MP was almost identical to Kz3 multiplayer, and got old fast for me. Lets just hope Crysis 2 MP is fun.
IM getting BOTH versions YEAH you heard right! I just bought the PS3 version a few minutes ago and should be getting the 360 version by mail tomorrow. WHY you ask? Cause i have peeps i can play with on both sides. Its a win win situation!
Mops the floor? lol hahahaha ppl here kill me this site is too much. One more time for the ppl tht havent bought it yet its no more thn a 7.5 Kz3 is a league ahead of Crysis on every single level. Its way more engulfing and looks so much better. I will finish Crysis onlybcus i purchased it and there are few games i havent finished and didnt finish bcus they were unbearable however Crysis 2 is decent so ill be able to finish. When im done ill still be playing COD, Killzone and Uncharted 2 well i cnt give that MP up even if i wanted too tht game is on another level.....
The war..... rages on. How many gamers are playing while the fanboys fight it out?
It's never going to end because people don't know how to just play the game and have fun with it. It's gotta be better than "something."
Killzone 3 owns Crysis 2 overall package. Hate only makes me stronger.
Funny how ppl love comparing Crysis 2 with Killzone 3. They are both great games with great visuals. I dont see what the problem is. Or maybe its because people want a game thats on the 360 to win best graphics of the year because the last 2 times the PS3 took the crown with Uncharted 2 and God of War 3. Uncharted 2 beating GEARS 2 and God of War 3 beating Halo reach. I really cant think of anything else.
Boy with all these complaints about systems, graphics and who's got the best games still going on people should be glad they can afford to buy and play them. Stop acting like a bunch of brats.
So many full stomachs from all the Crow eating of late. Thank God I own all consoles, and have the choice to play most everything on my PS3, my console of choice. I have my 360 for Gears.
Yeah, I used to proudly own all 3 consoles but the 360 kept killing itself, and the Wii, well the Wii just sat there till it was covered in so much dust that it's shelf looked like a winter wonderland. Now I am a happy owner of 2 PS3's (and a gaming PC)
I'm playing it right now in the pc on very high settings. it is the closing game to reality I have seen yet. when am running down the street I sometimes forget it's a game.
From what I've played the console version looks good, and the PC version looks Killzone 3 worthy. No one has to agree, but that's just the way I feel. To me Killzone 3 feels really, but despite the very clean, polished graphics of Crysis 2 the graphics seem very gamey. Also, as a PC gamer, the game it toned down A LOT. The first one was vast with lots of options and versatility, so it feels like a small piece of a much bigger series
OMG im in the Hive in Crysis 2 now.I own the PS3 version and rent 360 version.And oh shit lol!Crysis 2 is awesome.IGN is pure liars when they said Crysis 2 on PS3 is inferior.They are Xbots fanboys for sure.It's a great port.Just check the framerate analysis,videos and pics on Lens of truth.And today,analysis on Digital foundry too.They cant lie like this to people.When everyone will know the truth.IGN will lose all their credibility and a lot of popularity! PS3 FTW guys! :)The campaign and MP is great.The MP have no lag.Simply an awesome game.
I'm sure owners of both consoles will be happy with Crysis on their machine. Killzone 3 was not that great in gameplay or graphics dept. btw . , traded mine for Dead Space 2 , a lot better game.
OM NOM NOM bleurgh...It still tastes generic and not so good.
So...am I the only person in the world who is having a hard time playing this game? The guns are not impressive, the enemies are difficult to spot due to graphics, and the suit is ungodly annoying. I wasted $50 on this, original Crysis was better, should have waited till this is $20 which should be soon, judging by gameplay. Really sad. Expected more.
