"Crysis is a ridiculous that has a Stereotype story!" Hideo kojima has said on a interview with Dengeki Playstation magazine!

The story is too old to be commented.
StanLee4229d ago

He's right but when he says it, it's lauded, when I say it, I lose bubbles.

captain-obvious4229d ago (Edited 4229d ago )

100% with kojima on this one
based on my MP demo try with crysis
it IS a ridiculous game

Rynx4229d ago

I can't help but feel conflicted.

I don't really care about Crisis, a game with highly vocal developers touting it as the second coming.

So with Kojima saying this you get intrigued.

Then again I don't care much for developers/producers talking smack about other products. With that I'm disappointed with Kojima's statement.

You can't also help but wonder that with his Japanese culture and their views of gaming being far different from the western views, that this statement stems from that.

Whatever though, Just announce MGS5 and MGS HD Collection already!

Mystogan4229d ago

The multiplayer is cool but Story is ridiculous i agree.

pain777pas4229d ago

Rynx, when the Kojimas and Jaffes of the world talk who have consistently made outstanding games it is good for the developers to read this who are making the game they are criticizing. Usually there will be some truth in their critique and could be helpful especially with the solid mechanics and gameplay seen in Crysis. Kojima is a genius and trully should be lauded because his games are much deeper than they appear.

Bereaver4229d ago

Well, those that know MGS can really understand what I mean when I say..... of course every storyline seems stereotyped when it comes to his mind. He's a genius.

Istanbull4229d ago

Kojima is right, MGS series put the standard so high in story telling that everything less is ridicilous.

Now give us MGS5 goddamit!

kneon4229d ago

I wasn't a fan of the first Crysis as I found it rather dull, but not really ridiculous, I'd be surprised if the sequel is.

But I find his criticism kind of funny as I found MGS4 to be rather ridiculous. Who came up with some of these characters? A 10 year old?

My first PS3 was the MGS4 bundle and I've yet to finish the game. I don't get the fanaticism about this game.

Man In Black4229d ago (Edited 4229d ago )

The first and third games are my favourite in terms of plot, but the second and fourth games get needless convoluted a lot of the time. Still better than most games out there, but people praise MGS4's story like it's the second coming.

gaffyh4229d ago

@kneon - Basically because you don't understand the story. It is clear that you've not played any game in the MGS series before, and MGS4 is the culmination of MGS1 and MGS2, so you really should play those games before playing MGS4.

I can understand what Kojima is talking about, the story in Crysis wasn't great, so I wouldn't expect the second game's to be any better. But I wouldn't go as far as to call it a ridiculous game, because it is still pretty fun to play.

nix4229d ago

ha ha but dont worry 'reviewers' will find it awesome. i agree with Kojima.

Man In Black4229d ago

@Gaffyh - Thing is, while the story in MGS4 is good, it doesn't come close to the previous games, with poor tying up of plot threads (NANOMACHINES) and irritatingly indulgent cutscenes that were a step back from MGS3's more balanced cutscene to gameplay ratio.

Graey4229d ago

@ Rynx

I would say it wouldn't matter to much where your from. As a lot of people like say, DMC, Marvel VS Capcom, FF series.

People know quality regardless of where your from. I would think Kojima-san would know this above a lot of other people.



Crysis is a complete ridiculous joke! Without Metal Gear, the game would have never existed (and many many others by the way), the WHOLE game is based on a stupid non epic looking nano suit!!!
They only copied an infinitesimal part of the Metal Gear story, made it look vulgar and silly and based AN ENTIRE game on it!!!
Maximum damage and epic fail !

undercovrr4229d ago

Damn right stan lee. Well what do you expect, this is N4G for you.

deafwing4229d ago (Edited 4229d ago )

this must be

"i'm a game director, time to let my feelings known week"

wtf first cliffy running his stupid mouth about a glow stick now this ... really guys, he's Japanese? Who's to say the person who posted this here, didn't do so not understand the context of the interview/comment made by Kojima ... fed up of this stupid articles on here.

MitchGE4228d ago (Edited 4228d ago )

@ Rynx

And MGS4 trophies. If we get a MGS Collection with MGS 1-3 remastered in HD with trophies, I want platinums for the entire series. MGS is worth the effort.

This also gets me thinking, what if they used MGS Twin Snakes as MGS1? Hmmm. Not that likely, but still worth considering!

Soldierone4228d ago

Ive been saying this since they first showed gameplay, which had very few enemies on screen and looked dull. Ill still check it out, but im not expecting greatness.

RedDead4228d ago

Story wise MGS3>MGS1>MGS4=MGS2

starchild4228d ago

Kojima should shut his mouth. At least that is what PS3 fanboys would say if he wasn't associated with the PS3.

Redman224228d ago (Edited 4228d ago )

bubbs+ to you StanLee. ; )

placed my pre-order in yesterday. we'll see how things go with the demo.


chillout man, that's just unnecessary.

MaxXAttaxX4228d ago

I knew I wasn't the only one, lmao

BattleAxe4228d ago

I liked Crysis and Crysis: Warhead, and I will be buying Crysis 2, but Kojima is right when he says that there isn't much of a story. Its just a fun shooter with really good graphics....not that theres anything wrong with that.

jjohan354228d ago

Is he talking about Crysis 1 or 2?

dc14229d ago (Edited 4229d ago )

Clearly this is a translation issue. He clearly states that Crysis "Is one of the most fun games".

However, I would gladly give someone I worm free tomato if they could make sense of the remaining article.. it is very hard to bare out the true intent.

I would also add that it's not Kojima style to bash another developer's product.

CobraKai4229d ago

yeah. it says it's translated from persian. for all i know he might be saying the game "is crazy"

kane_13714229d ago


I read the original language article, no, he sais ridiculous.

MaxXAttaxX4228d ago

Which pretty much means GENERIC.

Dread4229d ago

so kojima attacks games and it is fine with you lot, but when a developer associated with the 360 (Turn 10) claims that their game is better than the competition, then it is wrong and a reason to hate onthem.

and the double standards continue at N4G the land of the sony fanboy.

Jio4229d ago

Kojima never said Metal Gear Solid is better than Crysis. He's just stating his opinion. He's still human, therefore he has opinions.

InTheLab4229d ago

Kojima is not a Sony dev. MGS2 was also on Xbox and lets not forget The Twin Snakes on the GC or the Metal Gear (not Solid) franchise being on multiple platforms.

Turn 10 is from MSGS and they went after a Sony dev (which is what they should do for the sake of competition).

Lastly, I'm not sure what this has to do with the 360??? Unless you're one of the Crysis vs. Killzone types that forgot both of games appear on the PS3.

lee_ten4229d ago

wow, defensive much? how about actually reading the article first?

P_Bomb4229d ago (Edited 4229d ago )

Umm, Kojima productions do multiplats too. Ever hear of Castlevania Lord of Shadows? Kojima was onstage at the Microsoft E3 show last year with MGS Rising. You can get MGS3 on the Nintendo 3DS.

If you're gonna call out Sony fanboys, don't do it while in 360 mode. Especially when it's multiplat devs talking about multiplat games.

Soldierone4228d ago

Differnce? Kojima makes the best games out there, he has a right to say what he wants. And yes he makes 360 games so your allowed to like him. Turn 10 made a Gran Turismo wanna be game, they cause havick to get attention and nothing else its a common business method. Attack the best, get attention, sell games.

Crysis - Very nice game
Crysis Warhead - Great addon
Crysis 2 - wtf is this? no story... ruined mp.. no way

NeutralGamer4229d ago

Are you one of those who pirated Crysis 2?

If no how do you know the story? LOL

hiredhelp4228d ago (Edited 4228d ago )

even if he has a copy of this game b4 us. he has some insight to the game. sothis would be someone i would take note from if this guy is honist sais it has no story.

personally i beleave its about the gameplay as much as the story. i honistly thought crytek could deliver after all there one my favoured dev's. however we still not or i havent played the full version and only the pc MP demo. so there fr things may change. but people gota understand crytek are serious now about being a developer for consoles. so apart from farcry instincs, preditor. you could see this as a new line of games. in the future not always crysis.

lately i see alot people dissing the visuals. on both systems. this is a multiplatform game that has been soly developed useing a special engine on seperate consoles. this engine looks awsome. by all means compare it to any multiplatform game thats fine but ask me this up there with the top multiplatform games.

this still a ps3 buy for me. along with many others homefront inc. last note i thought respected developers never dised other dev's
like naughty dog thanking other devs in credits for helping you dont hear them saying other games shi*.

Coffin874228d ago

Yeah! You found one! Stone him!!!

negative4228d ago

Kojima your herro????


Gamer_Z4229d ago

Lol where in that post did he say Crysis is a ridiculous game? I didnt see it...

jimbone794229d ago

I guess he forgot the completely ridiculous shit he puts out. A metal octopus super solder women, a bee-man, a vampire? Compared to the Metal Gear series Crysis is rooted in reality. I’m not sure how he could call it ridiculous. This really doesn’t even make sense. Are they sure something wasn’t lost in translation?

prettyboy14228d ago


jimbone794227d ago

Well I'm not so stupid I misspell serious, and if a 1 man army is ridiculous his shit is way beyond that, and you're missing my point. I said "COMPARED TO METAL GEAR", you stupid fuck, pay attention.

DigitalAnalog4229d ago

Please tell me how can you guys miss this statement below?

"Hideo Kojima in his last interview with the magazine Dengeki PS saying that Crysis is one of the most fun games on the site"

Sorry, the flamebait title has no relation to the article, what's even more pathetic are the comments on that site who obviously did not bother to read 3 SIMPLE SENTENCES that sum up the whole article.

-End statement

morkendo234228d ago

KOJIMA has spoken!!!!!!!

lil Titan4228d ago

wheres Kojima agree button

milohighclub4228d ago

At least there's a game to play, mgs4 was more cutscene than game play

NewZealander4228d ago

well i loved mgs4 but considering the story was impossible to follow i dont think hes in any position to talk, and that ending ugh.

gravemaker4229d ago

hmm, mgs got stereotyped story too

Godmars2904229d ago

But MGS is its own stereotype, it doesn't follow it.

evrfighter4229d ago

I'll only comment on the main character big boss, and snake.

Escape from New York

Wanna take a guess at what the name of the main character is?

Godmars2904229d ago

evrfigher, are you trying to compare the movie which in no small part acted as the inspiration Kojima used for the character of Snake, against the typical lone warrior versus rampaging aliens that Crysis is?

There are major differences between the two. least of all the age of the Metal Gear franchise versus that of Crysis. That one set the basis for its genera, while the other just looks pretty - on a powerful enough system - while rinsing and repeating Aliens.

lastdual4229d ago (Edited 4229d ago )

Metal Gear's story isn't stereotypical.

It's ridiculous and convoluted at times, but it's definitely unique :)

ps3destroyer4228d ago

Yeah if you are a sony fanturd it's pretty unique.

fallingdove4229d ago

A man coming to terms with the fact he is a clone, whose life has only known the battlefield, fights against a faceless military entity to protect a society in which he doesn't belong(or understand) from giant robotic nuclear weapons. - And to complete the mission, he will kill friends and "family".

- Doesn't sound too stereotypical to me.

Now, 'man in super suit fighting alien invaders' sounds pretty familiar no? - I agree with Kojima on this one.

Iroquois_Pliskin4229d ago

Finally, someone understands me!

nix4229d ago

n dont forget that line in C2 trailer, "you're our only hope." ugh!

Ingram4229d ago

And that was a great synthesis exercise there summarizing MGS's storyline, because there's a lot more.
Halo, Gears and Crysis can be fully defined with the second description though.

NeutralGamer4229d ago


Troll no?

If you played Gears you would know there is no super suit...

Also in Gears the enemies is not the usual aliens.. They are a civilisation hidden underground...

Ingram4229d ago


Yeah, I know the Covenant origin, it seems like an alien invasion to me, it's like resistance which is a virus.I guess I should've said xenomorph.

And yeah, my mistake for thinking marcus fenix's suit is badass, it certainly looked to me like a step further than, say, gordon freeman's hazardous material suit.

turnerdc4228d ago (Edited 4228d ago )


Ummmm...I think you're getting your games mixed up. NeutralGamer is talking about the Locust Horde...the main enemies in the Gears of War series. You're talking about the Covenant...the main enemies in the Halo series. Gears of War doesn't even take place on Earth, it takes place on Sera and the Locust Horde are the planets native species that live underground. The Covenant on the other hand is a collection of several different alien species that declared war on humanity. Have you played either of these games? You seem awfully quick to assume you "know" the story when it seems you don't.

NeutralGamer4228d ago


This guy have not played them aparently..

Ingram4228d ago

I mix them up in my head, sorry.

Have you ever played MGS? Undoubtedly the greatest story of all time, films included.

Iroquois_Pliskin4229d ago

true, true... Haters gonna hate @disagrees

gravemaker4229d ago

lol, not true. It's your opinion

ATiElite4229d ago

I love MGS but come on... "Undoubtedly the greatest story of all time, films included."
that's really pushing it.

Star Wars, E.T., Forrest Gump, The Godfather, Half Life 2, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time, FFXII, Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Curious case of Benjamin Button you get the picture by now

Kojima is right Crysis 2 is ridiculous and Kojimas cut scenes are ridiculously too long. Kojima needs to play HL2 and learn how to tell a story through game play and not 2 hour long cut scenes.
