Now that the smoke has cleared, Attack of the Fanboy takes a look at the good, and the bad of Crysis 2.
Its a good game but its a carbon copy of Call of Duty and Halo with buggy A.I. That Producer overhype this game so much that he even talk trash about other games. And I still think Halo is a better game. At least Halo took full advantage of vehicles unlike this game. Crysis 2 vehicle is too stiff and unrealistic. when you throw a bomb at the vehicle it does not blow up everything into pieces like the ones in all the Halo trilogy. This Producer talk as if this game was the savior to FPS!!! Well I was just disappointed that its not a great game, but just a good game. Online has some issues too when people quit or join. sooner or later this game will be overshadow by Brink, Resistance 3, Morden Warfare 3, and Battlefield 3. Don't expect this game to get Game of the year, even close to Uncharted 3.
AI has been patched. Pretty good now.
a patch for the consoles too right or PC?
Both i think. 360 is what i run.
Yeah the AI is very poor on the single player.
Personally, I could care less about hype, I read some reviews, watched some videos and it looked like a game I would like to play. regardless, the game is fun with an ok story and a nice, long campaign. It's funny people call it a copy of COD because I cannot stand COD and I am thoroughly enjoying Crysis 2.
pretty much this
I have to agree with you. My only issue with multiplayer is that I am a 360 user... and I had most of my fun with the demos. When the game came out I did single player, and did not much care for multiplayer.
Its ordinary,generic,a rip off and the graphics aint half as good as we were led to believe so after the smoke as cleared all i can see is a tramp shuffling away into the distance mumbling incoherent words to himself.
hmmmmm, this is proof that reviews are a waste of time and why gaming journalism is rubbish.
Journalists shouldnt be caught in the hype. they should give an honest review. not be caught in the hype, review a game, give it perfect scores like it deserves it and then 2 months later review the game again honestly and now tell us the bad points and that the game shouldnt receive the perfect score it was previously given it instead deserves only to be a 7/8.
Funny how reviewers get caught up in the the hype with some games and give them higher scores than they deserve. Other games get nit picked to death and scored lower than they deserve. I don't like to think it's due to bribery, but there is certainly something wrong on the journalism side of the gaming industry.
I think the average of reviews is spot on. I never bother with the best or worst reviews... Always biased.
Worth a playthrough, not worth 60$ imo. It could have used another 6 months in development. I liked seeing that they patched the absolute putrid Ai bugs.... next step, PATCH THE DAMN WEAPONS THAT DONT SHOOT. How do you make a FPS when some weapons occasionaly bug!? That was a first for me in any FPS.
The MP for PC doesn't even work properly up to now. Hackers are running rampant, there are numerous connection issues, and some perk resets are STILL not addressed. Waste of money.
Single player is good, but a slow starter I think. Multiplayer is a mess - lag and hit detection is all over the place on PS3 IMHO.
Sadly this is part of why PC gaming is dying. Why develop for a system when users will first pirate your game and release it for free a few weeks before release, cutting into sales. Then they hack the shit out of it and complain that multiplayer is unusable. Then the publicly badmouth your product for having hacked multiplayer. Then they badmouth you again for not wanting to develop for PC in the future. Hacking and pirating is on all systems... but it is far worse on PC. Crysis 2 is great on 360.
