RipTen: The Crysis 2 beta is a sampler platter of sorts as it throws your favorite mechanics of first person shooters into a blender and makes you a first person smoothie that is surprisingly delicious despite how unappealing that sounds.
I had alot of fun with this, I hope the full game doesn't mess it up.
You never know what will happen with final releases. :(
they only things they should do in the final release is turn the graphics down so theres no lag in the controls, because it's a real game breaker
Looking forward to playing this game where it rightfully belongs - PC.
Enough with that already just cause it will look better on pc does not mean it will be a shit game on consoles
Except it IS shit on console. Multiplayer in the original Crysis sucked, but what I just played on my 360 was a complete joke.
Bobrea, lots of people really like the demo. Should they just ignore the game because you don't like it? Arrogant. Not everybody has a gaming PC or necessarily likes to play on the PC. Those people now have a chance to play Crysis 2 where they otherwise wouldn't have been able to. Besides, weren't you a PS3 fanboy?
Well the reason it is upsetting is that with the demo release today you can already see that they are trying to go to the mainstream and be like a generic shooter like cod. Crysis 1 was a game like no other. But most casual gamers and console people don't appeal to different things, they just want easy generic games like cod...
I'm glad it made it to consoles. I'll be playing it on pc but I'm glad the consoles finally get their chance to get a piece of this. That and it forces them to optimize the engine, which they desperately needed. Crysis is sick. It actually feels right in the city too.
As long as the PC version isn't compromised, I'm 100% with you on that one. The more people that play and enjoy the game, the better in my book. I used to take my PC over to my friend's so he could experience the first game because he only had a 360. Again, as long as it isn't gimped for the consoles, and I don't think it will be, then I prefer to share a game with as many people as possible. You hear that N4G users? SHARING, a concept you seem to forget with all your exclusive bullshit.
Tried to download it earlier but it was taking forever. About to try again.
im already bored with it. they fucked up the nanosuit. u have to hold down the a button to jump high and if ur on a small platform u usually dont have enough fuckin room when u try to run and jump u fall to ur death it's bullshit. the way you selected shit was done better in crysis 1.
You don't like Dead Space 2 and you don't like Crysis 2, so its sounds like you are just hard to please.
u cant run/jump from small platforms with crysis 2 jumping having to wait acouple seconds before u can jump high is total bullshit. that's fuckin gay it causes u to die. DELAYED JUMP=BULLSHIT
I was SUPREMELY disappointed in this game. I didn't expect the graphics to be close to it's PC counterpart, but even for 360 I though the graphics were horrible. And since I know that graphics aren't everything, I will also point out my major gripe: it felt like just another COD clone, with it's killstreak rewards and killcam and the overall "feel" of the game. Although, I really shouldnt have expected much considering how horrible I thought the original Crysis' multiplayer aspect was.
but the only real problem I have with the demo is the input lag from the controller.
I didn't feel a lag. But the controls are kind of heavy feeling. I think that's appropriate given the suit. I think it would feel like that.
yes. this is the one thing that bugged me about the demo.
You guys realize that graphics are usually knocked down a few notches in multiplayer modes right? just checking; idiots
Hey idiot, look at Killzone 3 in Single campainge and Multiplayer. Still the same amazing grafichs, you idiot. Look at Gears of war, still the same nice grachics both multiplayer and singleplayer.
Hey killer, You forgot KZ2, uncharted 2, F1 2010, reach, and just about every other game released in the last 2 years. I'd like antihiro to give a list of all the games that have lowered graphic quality for multiplayer, cause I can't really think of any (but I am an idiot).
Most of the Halo games and all of the Call of Duty games have diminished graphics in multiplayer modes. I guess I'm an idiot because I actually work for a game company and I know what I'm talking about. Killzone 3 isn't out yet. Please go drink bleach now.
its a demo not a beta
I was impressed at all with the demo.
Felt more like MW2 for me. Wish things were destructible.
