There's a bit of negativity levelled towards Crytek's forthcoming shooter following the demo release, has the demo done more harm than good?
I'm getting this for the single player. Multiplayer can just kiss my ass.
agree ^^^^ Beta turned me off but after seeing the leaked gameplay I'm gonna get it. Just wont play the multiplayer.
I just downloaded the multiplayer demo last night on pc... man they made it a totally different game... the game really sux now...
Agree here, multiplayer became stale for me after only 2 hours :/
The leaked beta gets nothing but praise yet the official demo gets spat on. Haha, now that's what I call funny.
not sure they decided to neglect PS3 gamers for now
I thought all PS3 owners had Uber powerful gaming Pc's too. So they aren't being neglected.
Crysis 2 runs only on DX9 for the moment, they will patch it after release to support DX11, that speaks volumes in my opinion.
I don't like the fact that Crysis was the cutting edge of pc graphics but this one only has 3 graphics settings. Low, Mediuim & High (with different names) Crytek have sold ouot and also lied about the pc version not been gimped.
Im not getting this game...I have killzone 3 and i am sure BF3 will b more fun than crysis..And i got COD MW3 coming out which im getting(Yes people hate on COD on this website but i still luv the game)..This game is just over hyped bcuz it was once a PC exclusive. Thats the only 3 FPS i am getting this year, i got bulletsrorm but i returned it bcuz it got boring quick when u finish it.
I am not a big fan of COD, and Blops has a crappy online server system. I am going to rent MW3 when it comes out. I am not going to play online but I kind of want to know how the story ends.
You need to be banned seriousely, all you do is troll crysis threads and sy I have KZ3 then add a list of random shooters on top of it so as not to look like like a ps3 fanboy. dont even take my word for it...look at his comment history.
I don't think that the demo or the leaked SP will hurt sales, as neither can be used for epeen purposes.
They just need to fix the draw distance, pop ins. Replace temporal AA with MSAA or MLAA. Upgrade some of the textures qualities on the console versions. Overall the game just needs another month or two of polishing on the console versions. If the console version just can get up to pc quality on gamer setting on consoles im sold. I know the pc crowd is upset about the graphic, but when you compare the 360 version to the pc version. It's pretty much night and day even on the lowest setting. Crytek get your game together.
impossible, consoles are struggling right now as it is.
I was hoping consoles can at least match minimum setting pc. They are optimize gaming machine first and foremost.
Its a great multiplayer game, more enjoyable than killzone because the map design is amazing and allows you to move around the map unlike other shooters this gen, Medal of Honor, BC2, COD etc. Its nowhere near perfect, its a bit of a twitch shooter in that its COD health levels and you can spray full auto while aiming accurately which is just trash. A health bar like Crysis 1 would have been so much better. what seperates it from other twitch shooters is the fact a smart player can really use his head and outsmart people, im glad it at least caters to one aspect of a proper core shooter. Which is better than what anyone else has done this gen since everything else has been focused on making it more accessible and bumping up the graphics.
"what seperates it from other twitch shooters is(...) Which is better than what anyone else has done this gen (...)" Nah, can't agree by any means, Carmack, Bleszinski, Romero, Kamiya are much better level designers. "a smart player can really use his head and outsmart people"(...) Ok...what thing a smart person would use to outsmart someone, their feet? pf...I know what you're meaning, I've played some C2; it's called "complacent" level design, an approach that tends to suggest privileged upper positions for headshots so it becomes clay pigeon shooting and the player feels rewarded, it's something PC developers use to do when debuting in consoles. And hey, sorry for being a dork but I've been around a long time.I still feel Unreal 1 as "modern" if that's a clue...
so maps that are basically mirrored on each side are of better design quality? what rubbish. Im glad the maps are dynamic and interesting and one side doesnt look the exact same as the other. Height is an advantage like any FPS youve ever played, what the smart player does is use his abilities to the full while micro managing his energy and being aware of his position to the objective and also his team mates positions to the objective. Look you can sit here and argue black and blue but you wont change my view and I wont change yours because naturally human beings are stubborn. I enjoy games were I have the freedom to move around and im not confined to "my teams" side of the map because the enemy team has every bottleneck camped down. The consoles have already been proven to run on low settings (google it). Bf3 since its DX11 native on the PC wont be anywere near as good on the consoles and its yet to be seen, obviously Cry engine 3 isnt as well optimised as those other games and we are judging the scaled down MP graphics here. I think some will look better and some wont, I wont disclose which because it will ensure the wrath of the fanboys. Im not about graphics regardless, im about gameplay and it has good gameplay to me.
As a SP gamer I'm looking forward to this because Farcry is one of my favourite shooters. But I cant help but feel a little bummed out with no Move support. Two weeks ago, that didnt bother me so much, but having tasted it, its a pretty big deal to me now.
Let's see my wishlist for this year: BF3, Portal 2, KZ3, and RAGE.Notice something? @Markus: Just a rethoric but, if consoles are struggling as you say, at its practical hardware limits, and making a better C2 on consoles is not possible, Will then those games look equal or inferior to C2? Do you really think so?
well I was looking forward to Crysis 2 but was disappointed when playing the 360 mp demo. It just didn't play that well and I was quite disappointed by the graphics. Chances are i'll pick this up for single player only on pc which lets face it will in reality look much better than the console versions
They chose to be represented by the makers of haze, real smooth...
All i know is that a lot of people had negative things to say about the beta. Which isnt a bad thing if they fix the issues.
MP isn't my bag, but neither was Crysis1 or Warhead MP,I'm more looking forward to the SP, which I'm hoping will be great, I hope.
I'm surprised my 9600GT was able to run this on console resolutions in Hardcore settings in a solid/variable frame-rate. If I had one gripe with this game is that the weapons aren't really that balanced, especially the shotgun. I had to unload the whole clip before I can register a kill, by the time I got 3 kills I'm already almost depleted of my ammo which makes no sense. There should be a hot key for a grenade throw, it's troublesome selecting it like a normal weapon before we could throw it. In any case, the game is solid. Did the graphics impress me? I run this game with DX9 Gamer settings by 1152x720. The answer is no. In fact, Serious Sam HD looked better for me at least. -End statement
IMO, yeah. Not everyone is into MP. I shouldn't have to go through all those shitty 'Can't connect to host' errors just so I can see if the game will run on my PC. They should've released an SP as well.
