Homefront kills Crysis 2 in sales totals

With EA's Crysis 2 mostly regarded as the better game by gamers and the gaming press alike, that positivity hasn't translated into actual sales if sales data is to be believed.

Both games are a huge letdown. Sadly, I own both of them. Although I think I've had a more memorable experience with Homefront to be honest.

Homefront has one of the most fun perfected MP since Call of Duty 4. The SP is a joke though. Vice versa for Crysis 2.

Damn nice numbers.

ASSASSYN 36o2785d ago

Well said winter. I agree.

Killzone 3 was the best game out of the 3 for me personally.

Hellsvacancy2785d ago

Meh, HomeFront never looked all that great and i didnt like the beta for Crysis 2 at all, my buddy bought it and said it was pretty crap although he thought it was better than K3 (another game ive yet to play)

Deus Ex 3, Rage and BF3 are all i needz in the fps department, anythinelse will be a rental

If Crytek made Crysis 2 exclusive to PC with it's full potential... it would probably be a better game and sold more. Crysis 1 for PC sold pretty well.

Crysis 2 is a good game... but could of been so much more.

Yea, it's a shame so many features had to be compromised because of consoles.

i hope crytek will get the message, lot of pc gamers are angry at them

stevenhiggster2785d ago

It would have looked better, no doubt about that. But the game is still rubbish. I am a massive fan of the original and I really just wish the second one hadn't happened at all. I mean seriously, the story was just terrible compared to the first game, completely ruined the franchise in my opinion.

Crytek has invested a lot of money to be able to develop on all three consoles, I doubt they're about to pull out and go PC only any time soon. Besides they can only pull a rabbit out of a hat for so long.

I only got homefront. SP felt like it was missing polish and a 2nd act. Felt like there was a beginning and an end. Me personally, I could never join a match only with more than 4 people through matchmaking.

It has potential for a good sequel. If it doesn't look good than I won't buy it. I gave them a shot.

Crisis 2 turned me off cause I never played 1 and that first gameplay unveil at E3 looked really boring. Meh.

well deserved.

Homefront kills Crysis 2 MP all day...

Hellsvacancy: Crisis better than KZ3? are you crazy?

Sugreev20012785d ago (Edited 2785d ago )

I agree that both games were a huge letdown,personally one of the two biggest disappointments this least for me.Anyways,Homefront has among the most piss-poor campaigns I have ever played on my PS3.Pathetic companion AI and even dumber enemy AI.Nothing is really new,and the campaign is far too short to really enjoy.Certain sections look like they were developed for the PS2 and the voice-acting is cringe worthy.
But,I haven't played Homefront's MP because of the Sony Blackout.Crysis 2 has a decent MP,but not as good as I expected.I'm glad I bought Killzone 3 earlier,because it had a great SP and one of the best MP since Bad Company 2 imo.

i got both, but i've only played multiplayer on crysis a few times thought it was crap

shades722785d ago

Crysis 2 is simply the better game, maybe a number of gamers were taken in by Homefront, purchased, and then returned. Especially as that 5 hour campaign is criminal. Crysis 2 offers better value for money, although admittedly I had a lot of fun with Homefront's big team battles multiplayer.

Robearboy2785d ago

Home front was total shite, i beat the game on the hardest setting in 3 hours, the only decent level was the last one on the bridge

Soldierone2785d ago

Probably because thats where games normally pick up and carry onwards for a good 3 to 4 hours...someone at THQ forgot to add that part of the game. lol

led10902785d ago

i bet crytek must be scratching their heads right now. When crysis sold a million copies on the pc, they said that games of such quality sell at least 4 times more. And now they have the same numbers on 2 platforms. But i feel the missing pc numbers make a huge difference for this game

therapist2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

crysis 1 sold over 3 million

warhead sold over 1.5 million

pc only and it would have sold better, console games are starting to sell like crap!

@masterchef below......


What is wrong with people, games are not made on consoles, games are made on pc, ALL GAMES ARE MADE ON PC, every game you play was made on pc, then maybe PORTED to console, here is a video to help those that have trouble reading, go to 3:20 min. in and see killzone 2 being developed on pc, maybe that will help the slower ones understand.....

see all the guys working on pc to make killzone 2 ??????????

There are never games made on ps3 or 360 then ported to pc!!!

Every game you play was made on pc using things like C++, java, bink, physx, havok, unreal, scaleform, realtree, frostbite, demonware, these are all pc tools used to create console games.

man people are slow
