Luke Kelly, Crytek's animation designer, has revealed in a recent "Community answers" that Metal Gear Solid 4 is his inspiration.
that even crytech wouldnt dare speak ill of MGS4. who wouldnt get inspiration fro hideo kojima's master-peice.
Metal Gear Solid 4 Got Game Of The Decade From VgChartz. yes its that good. i see why crysis 2 is inspired by it.
Honestly when a Title Screen blows you away, you know you're in for a masterpiece.
The thing is a masterpiece. I'm not even into Metal Gear like that and I still think it's the best game this generation.
And is the only exclusive in this generation with 10 of Score in various official Gaming sites.
its more like damage control after bashing every successful console game out now at least its good to see that they are paying respect where respect is due...
I believe he was sincere, even if it was sort of used damage control.
Because.. Crysis 1 was beautiful to look at... but the gameplay & story pales... nothing fantastic about the gameplay... Lets just hope C2 will be fantastic.. i'm willing to give this game another try... but if its still "same old.. same old.." well, for me, crysis will be history.
That's an insult to MGS 4, because Crysis 2 doesn't look to be anywhere near as interesting as MGS 4. Crysis is mainly known for having some of the best graphics on the PC. Not best gameplay or story or anything worthwhile. For a developer to mention MGS 4 and Crysis in the same sentance for any reason is disrespectful! MGS 4 was a great game! I watched the video for Crysis 2 and yawned... couldn't understand why everyone liked it so much.
@ AAACE5 Actually playing through Crysis and Crysis Warhead would probably help you understand why there are people like myself who are very interested in playing the sequel. I'm glad to hear MGS4 is such an inspiration to them. That's one of my favorite games this generation.
It is a balance of story, game play and graphics that is rarely unmatched. Hopefully we see that balance in Crysis 2.
If I can buy Just Cause 2, I can buy Crysis 2. That game was like a B action movie. The game is fun, but that's all I can say about it. If the full procedural destructible environments is real(just shooting out some windows isn't displaying that), then this game is already a win. But I wouldn't mind some story and gameplay... Especially if you are trying to match Uncharted 2, Halo, Killzone 2 and MGS4.
it's nice to see the Crytek got inspiration from MGS4 @DaTruth: if you want destructible environments try Black for ps2, it's very good fps
Ok, i can reveal it now: Crysis 2 will look identical on PS3, 360 and Wii ;-)
MGS4's animations were top notch, so I'm glad to see Crytek is going to try and step it up from what MGS4 did. I hope to see a cut scene on the level of Raiden Vs Vamp vs over 9000 Geckos. That was a very well animated cut scene, and the gameplay has some of the most realistic and well put together body animations ever for gaming. I'm excited to see more of C2 at E3. Hopefully this will be a great awakening to other developers just in terms of stepping it up on what engine to use. UE3 needs to R.I.P, because even in 2010 devs are pushing out games that look like 2007 or sooner.(Splinter Cell Conviction...I liked the game, but it'd probably have looked 1000X better on the Crytek engine)
How is Crysis 2 going to be released on time, it seems all these guys are doing is just talking.
How dare they even speak of MGS 4 and any other AAA games like Killzone2. Lets see some gameplay finally, because right now I'm calling Bullsh*t on this game.
Story telling i must say MGS4 is still the best personally. U2 did also great with better editing but it didn't have the depth like in MGS4 imo. U2 is like a great Action adventure blockbuster movie but MGS4 is a deep long action/drama sci-fi spy thriller. Annimation though U2 wins hands down.
Sorry, I'll have to disagree a bit here. MGS4 was clearly in dire need of an editor. There were far too many instances of drawn out, superfluous dialogue that was just entirely unnecessary. The Drebin codec sequences were fantastically annoying and pretty pointless. Then there's the "second" ending. My god. Hypnotism? Really? In a world of nano-machines and cyborg-ninjas, hypnotism? Hideo clearly didn't do his research on hypnotism either, but that's besides the point. It was a good game, had a good story, but the way the story was presented could have been better, let's not kid ourselves...
as much as it hurts me to say it, you are right. MGS4 is my favorite game in this gen, but it could of used an editor who could reel Kojima in.
It was hypnotherapy, drugs, and nanos FYI.
What was wrong with Derbin codec? Without them i wouldn't understand the backstory of B and B. Its not MGS without codecs. One of the main reason why i loved MGS4 like most MGS fans is that its classic Kojima MGS. Kojima didn't compromise at all. In terms of story telling Kojima didn't compromise it to fit current gaming industry standard storytelling. Thats why MGS4 is different from the rest. MGS4 is for the fans which is. It was a no holds bar Kojima style sign off for the greatest game hero in gaming for me. For me i hanged on to every sec of every codec and every custscene. I loved it just the way it is.
His strength and faults are what makes MGS so great. When you play MGS games, you just have to love them for what they are... warts and all It's like 2d Mario games... I better not start seeing deep story lines. I want pure platforming perfection. Most fans of Metal Gear don't just expect the long, quirky, convoluted stories -- they LOVE and look forward to them Though I will say, if Kojima was to be reeled in, it should have been during MGS 2. That story got crazy. MGS1, 3, & 4 were perfect. Long-winded but focused & entertaining :)
The people who don't like the drawn out nature of the MGS series are the same people who would never read a book and just watch movies. All books are long and drawn out by their nature, while movies are almost a summary of a good book. The type of "A-D-D" and shallow people with no attention to detail that you see everywhere these days. They don't even realize they are putting themselves down when they say this kind of stuff. They are afraid of a little depth, because it reveals their shallowness and lack of intellect when it goes right over their heads. Funny thing is, anybody who read a book and then went to see the movie 100% of the time will say the book was better. I also prefer movies to books, but I enjoy when they throw a little depth into my games and movies.
Thats very true. Thats why books will always be better form of story telling than movies. I generally finish reading good books in 3 days. A movie on the other hand gets boing if its more than 3 hours long. That will alway be a disadvantage in movies in terms of storytelling. Books explains every thing in much more detail which most will not make it to the final cut in a movie if it was made a movie. This is why fans of a book will alway be disappointed when their books are made into movies because to them its not complete and its selling their fav books short. In a way MGS4 story telling is more like a book with every small detail fleshed out. As a result you get the whole expereince like you would in a book.
I know mgs4 is one of my favorite games this generation when it came out I said finally next gen is here.
But crysis 2People have been talking a lot of BS fraying to create drama . do they need to create that much attention? Can't they create a good game and let the game talk by itself.
If Crysis 2 can pull off half the story MGS4 had, then it will be a pretty decent game.
Yawn crytec talking again shut up and keep working on your game you can then talk about your influence after. I still think crysis will flop on consoles don't be shock when it happens
So MW2 Uncharted 2 and now MGS4... this title merge the all best titles in one. The game will recive a 10/10 score
And people are still bashing Crytek for saying something good for a change. Just another day on N4G.
Did have some amazing Animation. Still one of my favorite games this Gen.
oh sorry...thats the impression i got of the vibe in the comments section when i saw the title, glad to see everyone noticed how everyone's inspired by everything =)
But im shore the quality will be very high becuz that's all they talk about!! I might be one on the few on here that has a very good feeling about crysis 2.
I actually like Crysis and I really want to see Visually what Crytek can pull off on a Console. I personally am a Graphics Junkie. yes gameplay is important but without Visuals to back it up I think it makes a fun game semi crappy. Im also looking forward to Crysis 2.
if Crysis 2 will have some sort of octocamo suit. ^_^
Crytech are a bunch of suck-ups.
so the ps3 version will the superior
It seems quite a few devs get inspiration from ps3 exclusives. Shame tho no one get inspired bout 360 games.
One of them is a ps3 exclusive!!
then why did you say "use gears of war's cover system" contradictory argument is contradictory..
to be fair gears was really the first popular TPS game with a cover system, not to mention the fact that killswitch was awful
well it has beautiful graphics...i could see how its inspiring.
All I can say is Crysis 2 better be the best game ever made. All we keep reading is more and more hype by the people making it.
The Metal Gear series is one of the best series ever. Each game is a Classic. It's good to see other developers appreciate other developers work. I hope MGS4 inspires Crytek to make Crysis 2 a more enjoyable experience as Crysis was boring at times where as MGS4 from start to finish had you on edge.
A nice reminder to the xbots how good this game is :) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
i'm shocked he'd say such a blatent lie. CRYSIS 2 will hopefully be nothing like that game. If it had been mostly game play and not all the crap video i'd of liked to played it, but i heard many parts you couldn't skip and only some you could. Ah well to each his own, right.
" but i heard many parts you couldn't skip and only some you could." lmfao So you "heard" things that made it sound like it was a bad game. Trying PLAYING the game before talking out of your ass. Yes you can skip pretty much every scene in the game. No need to cry about that one anymore. :) Oh by the way. Alan Wake is going to flop hard and be the 360's biggest disappointment since Too Human. Why? Because I HEARD it from a bunch of PS3 fanboys. rofl
MGS4 is a great game everyone knows that :D http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Everytime an article like this comes up I have to go play MGS again
is still better the most xbox360 and wii games that are coming out today wich is sad i predict MGS4 Will look better than Gears of war 3
Huh? MGS4 is also still better than most PS3 exclusives. Is that "sad" as well? Your tone sounds rather disrespectful towards what a stellar game MGS4 (still) is. It may have been surpassed in some technical areas and has its critics regarding the complex plot, but it's still a fantastic game.
yes that is sad I do agree you must be talking about haze
Been saying this since the summer of 2008. It's still the best looking game overall to me on the PS3.
