Crytek released a new patch for Crysis 2 (PS3 and Xbox 360 version). Check the complete changelog after the jump.
..but where is the fix for the negative Nano Catalyst in New Game+? It's rather discouraging if you have to start a NG+ on supersoldier with -15200 nano catalyst.
- Improved anti-cheat protection ^^ I Wonder how this will work.
I can't wait to see the improvements to the AI. In close quarters they are terrible. I hope this also fixed the bug where the game won't let me fire my gun in MP. It's only happened twice in about 14 hours of gameplay but it's still incredibly annoying when it happens. Nice to see them ironing out some of the kinks though...that host migration definitely needed some work.
PC version? EDIT: Suppposed to go live later today... http://www.mycrysis.com/for...
so im guessing they haven't fixed the grainy filter effect glitch? i used the work around to get rid of it for now, but i want it properly patched.
Every review I've read emphasized the problems with the AI. Glad these problems will be minimized before I play it. B4 I buy though, can anyone tell me if it would appeal to a Bad Company 2 fan like me? Is it recommended or should I pass? Any info from someone who has played both will be greatly appreciated.
The MP won't hold your interest for long, but the SP is much more fun than BC2.
It has the best MP I have played since Reach. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is willing to take the time to master the Nano suit.
Since REACH, wow. Better than. CODs/BC2/KZ3/MAG ect?
I find the MP to be insanely entertaining. Much more so than CoD or KZ3. I never got to plat BFBC2 when it always had full lobbies, so I can't judge there. It is more run and gun than BF though. Much smaller maps.
"Since REACH, wow. Better than. CODs/BC2/KZ3/MAG ect?" - Yup
I'd say it's fun, but not as good as the multiplayer of Bad Company 2. Crysis 2 is a good game, but I think the first Crysis was a lot better. I have issues with the poor AI and the framedrops are annoying at times. You can enjoy the singleplayer. I am really into BC2 (still) and I still return to BC2 and Killzone 2, still the multiplayer is fun for a period of time. I think you should rent it first or play it at a friend.
If you are likeining KZ2 to BC2 you must be mad. Crysis 2 is a combination of BC2 and COD and Halo, sort of like medal of honor, but done properly.
It's NOTHING like BFBC2. Really, nothing at all. It's COD with Halo like team sizes and armour perks.
@ all The controls look PERFECT. The nano suit as well as the vertical aspects to the gameplay push the genre and breathe a little life into the overcrowded COD clone infested FPS genre. That alone makes me want to buy it. I am however afraid of balancing issues, but fuck it. No one seems to be saying that its so unbalanced that its unplayable. I'm not really looking for a similar experience to BC2, but I am looking for tactical aspects to the gameplay.
sup guy, i love bfbc2, crysis is defo worth checking out it does have a bfbc feel to it but it plays like a mixture of cod and halo, it isnt in anyway perfect but has alot of potential. the single player ai is messed up, i saw 3 guys stuck in a doorway and also in a mission were i had to kill an enemy then pick up somthing he drops, it glitched out because i killed him on stairs, and the pick up fell though the map making it unreachable. wait till the price drops to a price that suits your wallet and you wont get dissapointed. hope this helps.
The multiplayer has elements from bf2 while maintaining a fast paced feel like COD. You can tag ppl like in bc2 as well.
Well I'm glad you asked, I can indeed tell you as I have played Bad Company 2 like a junkie ever since it came out, hell I was in the beta that came out before the demo... and BFBC2 is one of my fav. games. Got to level 50 and still play it, and got both the onslaught and Vietnam pack when they came out. Now Crysis 2 is not like Bad Company 2- it's completely different, it's more like Black Ops as the shooting style and feel is more like that game, just with added powers... So I Loved Crysis 2, Online was a lot of fun too, but it's not like BFBC2 at all, Maps are big but not like BC2 and the shooting is 100% different.. More COD4 then BC2 -you have a perk system which is in everything now, but it works well here and once you start to learn how to use your powers to how you play, the game is a blast. -But if your on the fence here is a good way to decided... Did you like Black Ops? If yes this is your next game.. -Do you play BC2 on hardcore or normal Online..? -Because if you like the way people go down right away from a shot like in hardcore mode on BC2 you will not like Crysis 2, it takes some shots because everyone is wearing the Nanosuit. and they could have Armour on or full energy.. (it has a high learning curve so if you get upset quickly when people are not dying and you hit them with all you got... if that's the case then you will not like it) -But where it shines is if you really liked COD4 or Black Ops and that kind of shooter, it's fast paced and it's sneaky - has like 12 maps, awesome for online- Single player was a blast, starts off slow get better once your powers start to get sweet and you start feeling like a bad A$$... Has really nice graphics, lighting it done really nicely.. Powers are Awesome, it's done well- adds a real nice and new element to the gameplay.. I love sliding on the floor - this is a cool game.. -But again it plays more like Black Ops with powers then BC2... Hope this helps.. you can read my full review in the forums too if you need more insight - http://forums.n4g.com/Crysi... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
It definitely helps. I DO NOT want a casual shooter like COD. If it plays similarly in the sense that the maps are smaller with more in your face action though, that's EXCELLENT and totally down my alley. I am EXTREMELY impressed (and relieved) with the killstreak system in that it is an anti-camping system. I've always been a firm believer that if you give someone special powers or weapons, that there must be a learning curve to them. My "lust" for Crysis 2 is the nanosuit. It has wonderful powers, but you have to master and balance each aspect of the suit for any given situation (certain maps, modes). Battlefield gives each class something DEVASTATING to their arsenal, but if you don't know what the hell you're doing with it, you'll find out pretty quickly. I was hoping Crysis 2 mastered this as well with the nanosuit.
BTW I just read your review and I'M DEFINITELY BUYING IT. I went on and read the comments and everyone seems to love it. PC gamers seem to be having some technical problems though. Thanks a bunch!
Wow, you guys are really making me want to buy this game ... but so many shooters already ... screw it, I'll give it a try.
They're hard to compare because they are totally different. I haven't really played anything that plays like Crysis 2. It takes a lot of elements form different games but it still feels totally unique. I would say it's definitely worth checking out, they have made a lot of improvements since the beta and the maps are awesome and all feel totally unique and well thought out.
I've read everyone's and thanks to all, but this answer is particularly interesting. Looking at hd youtube MP clips I was led to assume that it had its own feel, so its good to hear someone confirm that. It doesn't look like it plays like the overly sensitive, roller skating movement in COD. In COD I feel like I AM the the gun rather than being behind the trigger of one. Crysis looks as though it respects at least some physics while maintaining responsiveness. I'm looking for a fresh FPS experience in addition to BC2 so this might be it till R3 and BF3. Thanks!
I would definitely say it's fresh. Like I said, I haven't played anything like it (and I've played a lot). Between mastering the Nano suit and traversing the environments through parkour gameplay, this is definitely something different. Also, it allows you to play it however you want. There are perks to counter the invisibility or perks to enhance it. The air stomp perk is useless to me but there are plenty of areas in the game where it's incredibly effective for those who like to use it. Very few games are this balanced and still allow you to play however you want to play. Just be for warned that there is a decent learning curve. Don't expect to be getting 2+ k/d right off the bat.
I think BFBC2 has the best MP and this games MP is nothing like it. The SP is much better but the MP is more like COD with a hint of Halo than BFBC.
MP is fun as hell. The NANO suit makes the difference and is the main reason what sets this apart from other MP FPS games out now. If they fix the AI substantially, you will have a truly kick ass game beyond what it is now.
Crytek took so much pride with the A.I. in Crysis and Crysis Warhead. Good to here that they took care of the A.I. issues in Crysis 2!
I agree, it's rare to see a dev. actually fix something like AI post release.
and PC gets a patch that fixes 5 things? Well damn, that doesn't seem like favoritism at all. this ones a doozy. Pretty hilarious though, turn down your speakers if you watch this though, it's really annoying. Oh and no it's not a rick roll http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Good news about fixing the AI, too bad I've already clocked the campaign though.
The need to fix the film blocks/wavy lines because the game is ugly.
Hit detection???? Sort it out crytek
i might have missed it , but where is the chat in the lobby??? i dont want to play mostly because of this. when you are playing with other people, it is nice to be able to talk to them before you join a match. i dont even understand why it was left out.
Nice! I'm still ploughing through the singleplayer achievements and the bugs were kinda starting to annoy me at some times.
i went on crysis 2 a while ago and downloaded the patch. i have the ps3 version and when i went online i noticed that the graphics seem sharper and the shadow pop-up was fixed. Like it seemed that way anyone else notice a differece? it looks so much better now
No patch can fix the amount of suck the story had to offer.
I don't know what AI fixes they have made, but I played it this evening after applying the 1.02 patch and the AI still sucks big time. Really spoils the experience for me.
I hope this time the AI isn't able to get stuck in one another, for a easy "Two Heads Are Better Then One". Or looking at your hand to change suit effects and fall through the stairs.
just played PS3 version and the frame rate has improved, AI is still stupid tho!
Best MP? What are you people taking about? The MP is a snooze fest after 2 hours.
