Looks great, i still haven't bought this game but i will be buying it later this month, all everyone is talking about is how good this game looks & thats great, But i hope this game is more than just looks as Looks alone do not justify my $60 for me.
The gameplay is just as stunning as it's visuals. Trust me my friend, you will not be dissapointed with your purchase. Crysis 2 is the best FPS I have played in years...
agreed, the singleplayer is awesome, but you have to give it some time to grown on you, I didn't like the first hour or so. I don't like the multiplayer though, but that's just my opinion, I see a lot of youtubers love it.
Crysis 2 looks prettier when you play it alongside a PS1 game.
Indeed.. Crysis 2 is one hell of a technical masterpiece.. There were times during my playthrough where I had to stop for a moment to take it all in especially during that opening that occurs in the second part of chapter 2 where it teaches you how to use the visor mode, Really Beautiful sunset & lighting. The game is truly stunning when it's at it's prime though like when your in the middle of a firefight, bullets are flying, & your taking advantage of everything you have on offer like sliding, invisibility, armor mode & mix 'em all together to totally annihilate your enemies.. And the explosions? Jaw-dropping. Effects are all stunning also. I especially love the god ray / light shaft effects like shown in this video. Over all, A technical masterpiece.. Just like Killzone 3.
Definitely a great looking game!
Stunning Video Game, and fantastic choice of Music. The song is "New York, I love you but you're bringing me down" by LCD Soundsystem.
- http://www.youtube.com/watc... no mods.. Im one of the few who liked it more when it was photorealistic & not comicbookish + halo + Ultra Bloom mixed all together.. It better sell more than 3.4 million on 360 for them to focus their attention on them so much..

Pc maybe but i wish i did not spend the 60 for the ps3 version i bought. Im forcing myself to finish sp bcus i think its so weak and nowhere near as exciting and riveting as say killzone (yes im mentioning kz bcus every article uses it as a comparison). So far i have had no wow moments in Crysis 2 and the only thing that justifies my purchase is the MP which is quite fun and brings some different abilities such as cloaking. In terms of graphics lol hahaha oh boy if your a ps3 player and have played games such as UC2, GOW3 and definitely KZ you wont have wow moments in this game. I was actually disappointed in the graphics dept. bcus i expected so much more. The graphics are good, but no benchmark at least on the ps3 side. Sorry guys if im going against the grain but i own Crysis 2 and i just hink the sp falls flat and all i use it for is the mp.
Oh shut the fuck up. Never fails, someone has to compare it to some PS3 exclusive. Enjoy the video/game for what it is or go find somewhere else to troll.
ksoto has been spamming every single Crysis 2 thread since its release saying the same thing. "KZ3..is better..." ...and so on... The irony is he is an alternate account joined when Crysis 2 came out just to spam the game. Seems someone was a bit insecure at its release LOL Yes we know ksoto...the PS3 is God. KZ3 is king of gods in all its non real time effects and non real time lighting glory...now just enjoy the game will ya....
No the really ironic thing is that nobody ever talks about how Killzone plays, it's always about how it looks. I thought it was a video game, not a movie.
why dont u suck a fat one u homo lol You guys are so infatuated with the word troll you think eve ryone is one u take it out ur mouth its an honest opinion. I bet if u wasnt behind a pc u wudnt talk like that bcus id bitch smack the shit out of u u fag probably some lonely video game geek lol
Actually I'm married, have a career and a child. Oh and I can spell too.
@Bea - Do you suppose that might have something to do with the FLOOD of articles that compared only the graphics of the two games? No one cared about the gameplay. It was 360 fans wanting to believe C2 looks better than KZ3, which it doesn't, and PS3 fans wondering what all the fuss was about. Very few of those articles even mentioned gameplay. Personally I didn't buy either one, but I've seen both in action and KZ3 wins visually. "Fun" is subjective. Resolution, AA, textures, onscreen action, animations, and framerate aren't.
I would agree that Killzone overall looks better but I think Crysis 2 is relatively impressive. My point was that I have to constantly here fanboys talk about how Killzone 3 looks; not just when it's a graphics article but in just about every article. And not just with Crysis 2. It's never about the actual gameplay. Here's my issue, fanboys make it sound like Killzone 3 is the greatest thing of all time yet if you look at the online stats it appears as though less than 300,000 people have played it online (at least that's what it looked like last time I checked my stats). If this thing is the end all, be all, best thing of all time, why does nobody seem to play it?
Awesome use of slow motion for Crysis 2. Perfect Song for this!
"New York i luv you, but you bringing me down" Anyway... This game has its bad moments online but if it wasn't for the graphics i wouldnt be playing it to tell the truth.
Me too. Same reason I made it through Far Cry 2 which had its own problems online etc. The pop-in/pop-out in Crysis though is really starting to kill the pretty (I'm on Dark Heart right now). Even in this video, at 28 seconds during the copter crash rewind, watch a big honking shelf suddenly pop-in on the right. To the video's credit though, the game does look really good in slo-mo. Some of the sparks and particles I never even noticed during my playthrough.
Alternate account? Hoops hop off thts bitchassness stop gossing and keep gaming. You nerds are the trolls and fanboys trying to sell Crysis 2 as some bad ass powerhouse lol You knw what u can do with ur bs.
Crysis 2 is a great looking game.
Crysis 2 started off all sunny and pretty, then the huge blocky film grain came in with the rain....then the wavy lines...then the pretty game turned real ugly.
