GGTL: vg.deathmatch: Crysis 2 vs. Halo: Reach

Gamer's Guide to, Sunday 1st May 2011: USA vs. USSR. Brady vs. Manning. Ketchup vs. Mustard. There are many "what-if" battles that will be argued until the end of time. GGTL writer Andrew Testerman eases the minds of millions by pitting Crysis 2 and Halo: Reach in a head-to-head competition to see which is the better space marine FPS.

GGTL: "In the role of challenger is Crytek’s Crysis 2, featuring open-ended level design, multiple styles of play, and a brand new graphics engine for rendering space marines at their shiniest. Will it be enough to take down the reigning champion of space marine games, Halo: Reach, with its epic storyline, enormous set pieces, and industry-standard design?"

It'll be interesting to see in a few years which of these two shooters still holds up well.

On 360 = Halo Reach. On PC = Crysis 2 (duh). On PS3 = Crysis 2 (duh). Not hard to figure out.

Meh @opinion piece

Single Player was better on Crysis 2.
Not sure about MP though.

After playing both I would say , single player Crysis 2, multiplayer Reach.

crysis 2s sp is better than any sp fps to date, but the online is meehh mostly because of cheaters and the wtf moments like emptying a full clip in to a guy and he/she doesnt die and they shoot u with 3-4 bullets and yr down even though i am in armor mode.

Better than Half-Life 2 or Deus-Ex??? I don't know about that one....

x8002729d ago

yep you should play crysis 2 and see for your self. :D

KeiserSosay47882729d ago

@ x800

I finished the game on PC and it was definitely one of the better FPS Campaigns in the past couple of years. But Cmon! Half Life 2....seriously

It had an "ok" singleplayer. Too bad about the garbage multiplayer, never seen such terrible hit detection.

sonicsidewinder2729d ago

C2 had a plot like swiss cheese.

As a player of the original crysis i honestly thought it was disapointing.

N123452729d ago

I agree, Crysis 2 online is a mess. Halo Reach is in another league when it comes to online play.

I was pretty stoked for Crysis online when I heard that Free Radical was doing it, but I also think the online is fairly blah. It reminds me unfavorably of the new Medal of Honor online.
