Generally i dont pay more then 15-20usd for console ports always buy them on discount. I had decided not to buy Crysis 2, however if DX 11 with high res textures does role out ill probably pick this up between 15-20usd.

Blow my mind eh?

They didn't learn much about trash talk I guess.

Lmao. EXACTLY what I was thinking. Games like bulletstorm, witcher 2, and metro 2033 show that you need more than just a mean engine. You need a mean art department as well and honestly for what the cryengine can do i feel like crysis 2 was a major let down. Some of the custom maps for crysis show how incredible it can be with creative and potent art direction.

There's not much I actually really remember from crysis 2 :/ a falling bridge. A falling building and a floating island is about it. The end part was cool but it kinda failed that you could literally walk straight through and not kill a think.

Crysis 2? Oh yeah, that...

Fix AI, add proper physics, better storyline and more interesting gameplay as well as DirectX11 and we'll talk....oh wait, that's Crysis 3.

They need to fix the AI. I think the game itself is pretty good, but there is no point in having good gameplay mechanics if the AI is THAT bad.

"Fix AI"

You would THINK that would be one of their high priorities. Hell, Brink did that to an extent in the few days after it was out.

Honestly i'm still disappointed in Crytek for not getting this issue done. =|

There's a term for that. It's called "consolization". Some people seem to think "consolization" only affects graphics, but it's much more than that. It changes everything from visuals constraints to control mechanisms to gameplay dynamics to the scope of the game itself.

Crytek are a bunch of sellouts who've ruined the good name of one of their own game because of their greed.

Baka-akaB2493d ago (Edited 2493d ago )

except it's not consolization , it's just being plainly lazy and greedy .

The term is just insulting to actual consoles games , not port , that easily outshine the title

I am sure they'll release pics of DX11 running on PS3 and 360 before they bring it on PC... so much FAIL for these folks in Crytek... so much FAIL...

It amazes me how they had the nerve to claim Crysis 2 is the best looking game ever when it is worse than Crysis 1 of 2007.

GOOD JOB!!! lmao...

theonlylolking2493d ago

They said best graphics on PS3 and 360. I think it has the best graphics on 360 but PS3 and PC have better graphic games.

ATiElite2493d ago

wait isn't this what they said about Crysis 2 when it was released but yet my mind wasn't blow away (well until The Witcher 2 came out).

At this point i don't think any body even cares about Crysis 2 DX11 anymore unless it's Crysis Warhead 2 DX11. I guess they will be showing something at E3 but I will be way too busy drooling over BF3 and Arma 3.
