Mag posts positive impressions of "exceptional" latest build
gameplay over graphics.
Totally agree. BUT been playing the game on PC and I quite like the gameplay. It's the closest to Brink at this moment, the level design is imo incredible it's just straight up fun. CoDified, but fun.
Yeah it's not bad but don't really like the motion blur.
Wait - this game is out for PC already?
@Blad3star The demo is, it's on steam now. Over 1300 FULL 12/12 servers, very popular.
Difference is negligible? TO who? You the reviewer, that reviews games for a living and could give two shits because it's on to the next title or we the gamers that will be playing these games for hundreds of hours and expect the highest level of quality possible from these tittles. So this is how you get the maximum out of the PS3 hardware Crytek? "The only point I'd agree on is that the visuals - compared to the single-player version on 360, which I also saw - appear slightly less colourful, giving the darker maps slightly more murkiness. But the difference is negligible." @2fk Both are possible are they not. You shouldn't expect anything less considering we're paying $60 FUCKING dollars for these games.
@ 2fk Or you can have BOTH gameplay and graphics if you get the 360 or PC version. No need to choose. Edit: why the disagrees? It seems like common sense. PS3 version has the great gameplay while the 360/PC game has the great graphics and gameplay. I don't see how a factual statement like that can be disagreed upon. Don't blame me, blame Crytek. Just for the record I am more of a PS3 fanboy than anything. Luckily I also have a 360 and a PC to compensate for Crytek's inability to make a graphically impressive PS3 version.
the MP graphics on PC look like utter crap compared to the original Crysis/Warhead. I know MP is usually dumbed down from SP but still, this is a huge downgrade.
Well you could pick it up for the Xbox but I think its best played on the PC that’s where this game was meant to be played and to be honest I really don’t want to pay twice just to play one game Crysis2/1year Xbox live = $120 no thanks. I think I’ll just save that money for Brink and BF3.
I think to put the 360 version with the Pc version is retarded. If anything 360 looks closer to the Ps3 version and the PC has no equal. If you took your head out MS's ass you would see this.
Did you read the article IGN was probably playing an older build, the final game runs great on PS3 - no jaggies, framerate issues, ect. And if you think the console version is going to even touch the PC version you're delusional.
So is everyone gonna re-preorder the game again after canceling their pre orders last night? Lol told you that you guys were freakin out about nothing. Wait for the demo to make decisions. SMH....
PSM3 disagrees? Shocking!!!!
well they have played it therfore can make a factual statment about it, you trolling a ps3 article? shocking!!!
It makes me sad that people have disagreed with your post.
Graphics and gameplay are just as important people. I here so many people say graphics are more important or gameplay is more important. Well if you had epic graphics then you most likely wont have good gameplay. If you have great gameplay you hace crap graphics and you will not get nearly as immersed into the game as you would if it looked better. What you want is great graphics and great gameplay like uncharted 2/3, crysis 1(I like the gameplay and graphics), crysis 2, killzone 3, etc... For me it is a pain seeing bad graphics and it is a pain for me to have bad gameplay. You should not choose which one is more important because in the end they are just as important to the game. Now just think for a minute for those that have played uncharted 2. Now if it had super mario 64 graphics but even better gameplay how much more immersive and believable would the game and story be?
The two go hand in hand no doubt about it.
Great games excel in three things: 1. Gameplay 2. Graphics 3. Story
We must wait for Digital Foundry's face-off article to find out which console version comes out on top! Stay Tuned.. :)
Exactly my thoughts. IGN likes to make scandalous articles, on the other hand, this magazine is pro-PS3. We have to wait for the DF to compare.
Agreed! I think the 360 demo is the same build as the January demo just with the multi-player adjustments. The game will be in optimization stages now and I'm more than confident the final product will have a lot more polish on all three platforms.
Crysis 2 looks bad on PS3? Maybe..... ....but...Killzone 3 AWESOME.
sorry to disagree, but killzone 3 is a big disapoinment to me, and in some cases a step backward to the good loking killzone 2, that why ´cos they made some compromises to the to awesome lighting system present in kz2, when you shoot in kz2, everything proyect shadow and it was soooo sweet when you fry in bullets a helghan in a dark room, but in kz3 that effect its missing, and what do we have in reward for that? big scenarios and massive battles, just like halo, call of duty, gears of war and every other shooter in the market, killzone loose it´s identity in the proces and no mention on the awful story in kz3, a good looking game for sure, but i´ve seen things like that in other games but i haven´t seen anything like killzone 2 yet...
I don't remember hearing that it would look bad in the first place. Only thing I've seen from the version looked just as okay as the other two.
Read IGNs article...
Ouch! Won't be getting this then. Thanks, though. Helpful bubble for you
The guy who wrote the IGN article is biased against PS3. Don't listen to him.
Looks a little inferior perhaphs but that shouldnt stop a guy from buying the game on his console of choice. Many people that bought Black Ops for PS3 know they got it for the gameplay and their still having fun because in the end that´s what matters in a videogame.
Sure, gameplay over graphics any time, BUT, performance must be good and stable. Fps dips, tearing and lag hurts the gameplay. I dont care if the other version has a bit better texture here, a bit more folliage there. As far as the performance is solid, you can take my cash.
Yeah sure, but call of duty bo looks like crap in the ps3, i was hoping something that look at least like modern warfare 1 or 2, something that looks equal on both consoles, but not only looks worse, it also runs worse, awful effects in explosions for example in one of the latets missions when you are in the choper shooting everything in your way, in the xbox 360 looks nice, but in the ps3, the woods looks like the ones in zelda ocarina of time or something like that, i realy get pissed when i play cod bo and saw that kind of things, at least i rent it...
I will keep saying it... just download the demo come the 15th and judge the game for yourself on the PS3. The demo is free and takes all of 3 or 4 button pressess to begin downloading in the background.
Amen i am not going to judge at all yet. I am playing the PC version now and i am enjoying it. But i do really wanna see the PS3 demo since i will get that and then the PC version when its on sale on steam. I`m getting the PS3 version because it is a better deal for me with amazon getting $10 credit back.
Again how old will the PS3 demo build be? Let's just hope it's the latest Crytek have going, anything else could wipe out all interest on the PS3 platform.
They be fools right now to release a really early build of the game for the PS3 demo. If they are smart and want to sell there product they need to release the newest they have for everyone to try out. Bubbles to you Dlacy13g
Doesn't matter though. Truth be told, Crytek disappointed me this time with Crysis 2. First, IGN shows that the PS3 demo was suffering issues that its Xbox 360 counterpart wasn't suffering from. All those words from crytek claiming that there is no one else out there who are working as good as them on the consoles...that they are maxing everything out...lots of talk with no work. Anyway, My Crysis 2 preorder has been cancelled.
PR stunt or damage control? First off, the last gameplay vid was confirmed to be a lower resolution than the 360 version - which of course makes it "inferior". Does this mean the game look bad? No. But the fact remains, Crytek has assured PS3 gamers that they would have the 'best' version on consoles and as of yet the managed to fall at the short end of that stick. Some may say to wait for the final version before comparisons should be made. Maybe. But seeing as the demo quality between the PS3 and 360 are too apparent, what does that mean for the 'final' retail version? -End statement
To be fair, Crytek claimed that a long time ago. For months they have been saying their would be parity on PS3/360, and quite frankly, that's all I'm expecting (and all anyone should ever expect). Never board the hype train. That said, I'm still looking forward to its release.
Let's face facts. There is a rather unfortunately large contingent of PS3 fans that seem to think they need to downplay and shit on anything that isn't exclusive to their platform.* They have a “if it doesn't have the names Uncharted or Killzone attached, it can't be good,” type mentality. This needs to stop (but, it won't). They don't want Crysis 2 to succeed. They don't want anything to succeed that isn't exclusive to their precious console of choice. While I think the PS3 is a great platform, I don't understand how people can be so delusional and fanatical about the damn thing. Get over it. Multi-platform developers can make great games for your system. Stop acting like you don't understand what I'm saying, because you do, you just choose to delude yourself. Companies like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo want you to feel personally invested in their platforms... it makes them more money and gives them a solid base for sales. That's all you are to them. That's all you will ever be to them. They are not your friend. They don't feed your cats when you go away for a week. They don't help you move. They just want your cash. Why be fanatically loyal to a company? What do you gain? I can understand sticking with a company that you like and trust, because they prove themselves to you, but some of you go beyond the edges of sanity. Stop being missionaries for the holy word of Sony or any company. How about you wait until the final product comes out and not just form an insta-opinion on half-truths and gorilla dust. You don't like what I said? Too bad. I'm being as fair as I can, which is more than I can say for many of you. Figure it out. *There are fans of every platform that seem to do this, so don't think I'm just saying it's one type of fan.
It doesn't really have to do with Killzone, Uncharted, or one of our many other exclusives, but that we should beable to expect pretty even looking games this far into this generation. It's why we bring up exclusives, because they not only utilize our system, but bring us quality. I'm not saying non-exclusives don't bring quality, but i'm talking about the same quality as the other system it's being released for, because for me personally atleast, i just want my multiplatform games to be even. I'm not asking for them to have the same quality of graphics as our exclusive games or exclusive items, just to look identical. I'll be picking up Crysis 2 some where down the line, but I have alot of games to catch up on and i'm watching what i spend, because this fall seems to be flooded with games.
Forbidden_Darkness - If that's how you feel, you are not one of the people I am referring to in my initial comment. I'm talking about unreasonable fanatics - which do exist. I think there have been games that have looked nearly identical on both the PS3 and the 360. Deadspace 2 being a prime example.
@Zinc: Yeah true, i use to be more of a fanatic, but have since left those ways in the past. Yeah, i've seen those fanatics on the site from every system and it's annoying to see them bash and ramble on. Yeah, and that's why I picked up Dead Space 2 day one and enjoyed it alot, just wish i had more time to beat it again and I still have to pick up the Severed DLC.
@Zinc I`am just gonna say yes i do agree all the way 200% Bubbles to you btw and Forbidden ill give you one to.
Perfectly said. There's literally no way someone could give you a disagree without being mentally insane. MULTI-PLATFORM GAMES > THAN EXCLUSIVES This is a FACT and the future of the industry lies with the third party. Some exclusive games are fantastic, but at the end of the day, the devs that are exclusively first party make nowhere near as much cash as third-party, and that's why it will go the way of the dinosaur. Don't believe me? Just watch. You could even conduct an experiment yourself. Of the games you want to get this year, how many are exclusive and how many are third party? Once you realize the answer is third party, ask why on earth you would want them to fail. I would give up every exclusive to play more third party games. At the end of the day, if you don't support multi-platform games and their continued success and competition, you will have 3 game franchises to play for the rest of your life. and on topic... wait for the damn demo. IGN is the only publication so far to claim it looks "worse." If you look at any other site, they think it looks and runs equally. You can't just take IGN's side when it's convenient. Either you like them, or you don't.
@Zinc + bubble! Well said...
PSM3? As in PlayStation 3 Magazine? I guess there would be no differences if you haven't played the superior versions... I'll wait for a Digital Foundry or Lens of Truth comparison before pasting judgement but I'm guessing it will go like this: PC > 360 > PS3 ...
Been playing the demo on 360, to me the death animations look atrocious. Everything else looks great though.
For me, a paper magazine is always more trusty than hit-craving sites who live off ads. Anyway, waiting for the demo before I order.
I heard that the guy who wrote the IGN article was really biased against the PS3. Is this true?
Wouldn't surprise me. As one of the biggest gaming sites on the net, it's unfortunate that there's a lot of poor, often biased writing on it. I take every article with a strong opinion from that site with a grain of salt.
Well I heard he was like one of the most anti-PS3 guys you will ever meet. Like he will make you wanna punch a baby after listening to him. And I actually kinda noticed his biased view showing slightly in the last paragraph of his article.
did you see GT5 and killzone 3 articals ?!!.. they are fanboys , they even compared forza to gt5 in gt5 review !! they said the loadings are long but when you compare it to forza 3 the loading is way faster then forza !! i didn't visit ign for more then 3 months , they are stupids and they don't know how to review a game , they play the game in 1 or 2 days adn review it and bash the game just because it's a ps3 exclusive , the only sites i visit are N4G-GameTrailers-GTplanet....
There's probably gonna be bias from both this magazine and IGN. The media has it's fanboys too. I know I'll enjoy this game no matter what platform I play it on because I'm not really THAT picky about graphics performance. So ultimately I'm going to make my own decision. I only have a PS3 so that's the platform I'm getting it on.
Amazing how many of you are making assumptions about PSM3 when it's clear you know nothing about the guys behind it. Try reading it or listening to a podcast and you'd learn that they are honest and balanced.IGN are more unreliable when it comes to balance,even though they are multi.Again,if you read any(or listened)you learn that most people there play on 360 only and PS3 is popular with a few key guys but not most. Most journos are not as bad as forum assholes.
I Think the ps3 version looks very good in terms of graphics. I was waching a gameplay video of the ps3 version and i did not see screentaring. And Ea responds: "It sounds like the version others have been playing is a build that hasn't been optimised and (possibly) several months out of date,"
Getting this for pc any ways. The multiplayer gets so bogged down and delayed on the 360 version, i suspect with all the talk that the ps3 version isn't much better.
Someone is lying!IGN or PSM3!The fact is that the game is probably finnish by now and entering gold stage next week to meet release target!
wow now im confused. Oh well ill just wait for the demo and judge for myself.
What is the special about this game???? i thing This game is a bit overrated
MAXIMUM DAMAGE!! for the ps3...
JUST WAIT AND SEE iguess
