gamrFeed: What we want to know is if you play Crysis 2 online? If so, are you able to find matches easily? If not, why? Let us know. We discuss things in here, so let's do that.
me neither. I played it online a couple of times but it sucks. It's like playing COD but with a character hopped up on Redbull. Nothing in it is fun to me. The single player campaign is awesome sauce. SP = 9/10 MP = 4/10
4/10 online? Really? ... Yeah; I'll probably wait for a price drop to the $25-$30 range.
Crysis 2 multiplayer is a fusion of many different elements from popular FPS games and it does it well. The problem that most people have is the steep learning curve because its gameplay altogether is drastically different than COD, KZ, Halo, Gears, Resistance, etc. And that's what makes the game so refreshing. Crysis 2 has a really steep learning curve and linear leveling progression. What I mean by that is the fact that you are heavily rewarded with better perks/modules and weapons as you level up. I personally dismiss everyone's opinion of Crysis 2 until they've reached at least level 20 or so. Until then, they're just cry babies who haven't really understood the gameplay or its leveling benefits.
real chink in the armor is the lag. If you get in a lag free match its one of the best fps on the market. But its EA and they didn't sell enough to care. If it sold 5+ million like BF it would get upgraded. Any hows the new maps i'm seriously thinking of getting them. Just wanna make sure people playing them
Someone said that you can only comment on the multiplayer once you reach lvl 20. So your saying that the even though your not having fun on the trip looking at the end result is best? No thanks, i'd rather not walk through shit to get to the greener side.
true, i bought it on launch date , already sold it, got to level 23 online. looking forward to duke as my next purchase even though the online looks to be crap.
To me the jumping about it similar to halo, and i doubt you'd give that 4/10 because of that
well that's just fine, I'll pull out my killzone, uncharted, or call of duty, (whatever multiplayer you prefer) when i want to play multiplayer. Crysis is for singleplayer, and it's great at that.
I played the beta, and it was COD with super jumps and invisibility. I passed. The SP looked okay, though. I'll pick it up some day.
Nope the hit detection is broken with lots of lag. It's a sub par game with good graphics.
I think the game is ok, me and my buddy play the game a lot and when there is a good ping the game plays smooth and everything is alright. But being in Australia we are almost NEVER in a game with good ping and it is very very frustrating as the game just doesn't handle lag very well. The most frustrating thing is there is no option(that we have found anyway) for location search in matchmaking. Both me and my buddy have good connections so in most other games we are either host or have a good connection to the host but with Crysis 2 it's pretty much always bad..
No, because I have the PC version which has no sort of protection against hacks and such...at least last I played.
I Play it everyday, i love it. its just my type of game idc what anyone says. to me, its just perfect
Thats all that matters really! :)
Also i wanted to say that i think that the game has MANY basic Technical issues that could all be fixed but other than that i think that the energy system and how its linked to your suit abilities makes this game a very innovative shooter, it pulls crysis away from the generic FPS, like COD, and makes you play COMPLETELY different. I like the change of pace...and thats why i love Crysis2. Do i think it could be better??? Of Course but for me i just love it. The feel of it to me is perfect
Crysis 2 could have had excellent multiplayer. But they make you wait before you spawn in a game titled "instant action." People don't want to wait. People want to spawn.
Yeah its a shame the multiplayer sucked but that's because they basically ripped off COD with the perks system etc.. The fact nobody hardly does just shows people don't really play COD for great online they are caught in the "gamer loop". The gamer loop is simple nearly everybody owns a COD game and plays with there friends that's what makes it fun. Even with the crappiest online with good friends you can make it fun. So then out comes a new game and your so called friends upgrade to latest game forcing you to buy it so you can continue to play them. Thus ends a vicious cycle!
Very rarely play it online
It's really great, but these types of games always come down to what your friends are playing. A new multiplayer experience has to be really something innovative and awesome to pull them away from the COD games and Halo's of the world.
Exactly, and no matter how much any developer tries, come November everyone and there mom will be playing COD
And Battlefield 3 :)
im loving crysis mp
Halo and COD do not belong in the same sentence.
Didnt even bother getting the game after playing the demo.
Same, the demo is completely boring. I'd still like to try the campaign.
didnt bother after hearing no DX11. ill buy it once it goes on sale on Steam for $20. i still want to play the SP.
F____CK!!!!! STEAM = CONTROL OF YOUR GAMING HOBBY.
I was so burnt out from all the hype behind Crysis 2 and from all the graphics comparisons, that I decided to wait for it to go down below $30.00. Crysis Wars was a crappy multiplayer game too.
And Crytek said that this games Multiplayer would become more popular than COD
crytec is full of sh..
do you have a link to support your allegation?
Mp : 1/10
I give it 0/10, because personally anything that I don't think is worth playing is absolute crap.
REALLY? A 0/10? ID GIVE IT -100000/10!!
The mp seems to be lacking. It seems slapped together.
Good single player but mp sucks.
Meh, I mostly only play shooters with local multiplayer. Black Ops + Bots ftw. Sorry but there's still nothing better than fragging your buddy next to you on the couch.
horrible game IMO.
the game isnt horrible, just the multiplayer. But i understand why there are those who are disappointing with the game as a whole.
I love how I said that the MP was crap when the demo came out and I got tons of disagrees. Goes to show how a hype train can come to a devestating crash...
lol, Oh how the SHEEPLE's Butthole's are hurting now.
I do though my ps3 just packed in and its seems really stupid that i got to start rankall over again on a new ps3. STUPID
I am pretty sure your rank is tied to your PSN ID and kept on the Crysis 2 servers.
yup, I still do. Bit of lag but not a game breaker. Hit detection for the most part is good. You just need a bit of skill if your gonna play the game, which is why most retards wont like it. Its better than most games out there CURRENTLY. People that wont like this game are the people that shoot a guy in the back and still lose the gunfight.
U said it, man! I love the MP...the bugs can be irritating, but that doesn't mean it is a bad MP on the contrary it's fun, way better than the old COD, u just have get through the learning curve and that's what's gaming all about. People do not even try this, it's strange...a shame really cause it's a darn fine game if u forget what every whiner said.
Too much FPS like 3-4 per month.
the games has problems, but still great
said from the PS3 beta and I loss a bubble. I said the MP was absolute shit, and people said I was a fanboy and that I was hating because it was 'better than KZ3". I couldn't care less. I said long ago that the SP was probably going to be nice but from what I played, the MP was atrocious. NOt even talking about graphics. The hit detection, the player speed was too fast to be accurate at all, the melee was too fast. Told you so :)
you told no one. its only lag well 360 can't speak of ps3. you can slow the speed down like cod. In fact I had to
I retired from it at lvl.21. I liked it but it tended to be really frustrating. It was just too frantic and you got killed way too often. Plus yeah the hit detection was enfuriating. Single player was awesome though. Such amazing levels and the different approaches you could do were sick.
I think I sold my copy of Crysis 2 within the week.
within six months.
Good single player Multiplayer was meh Just as Medal of Honor
look at these comments , pretty much "game was too hard for my fragile mind, rather play casual cod. "
It's possible for someone to genuinely not like this game.
Like this wasn't COD with the speed raised 50% and with invisibility. Killstreaks similar (at least from the terrible beta) Matchmaking terrible Terrible Spawns (maybe that was fixed in the full game) Hit Detection terrible Killcams ACTUALLY HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SHOW PEOPLE SHOOT THE AIR AND KILL ME Melee to fast, I remember one game in the beta everyone melee'd because you can literally melee and kill people faster than they can shoot you enough to kill you (especially if you melee in armor mode) The game sucks. Can't even have more than 16 players.... Oh yeah, and the disc DLC unlocked to you guys by Crytek was an awesome gesture. I'd rather play Battlefield, Resistance 2, and Killzone 3. (At the very least it is almost better than Black Ops, as terrible as the hit detection in Black Ops is, they at least have original ideas like Wager mode and Zombies. Crysis is the most obvious COD ripoff since Modern Combat. At least the SP is good) @below At least Bad Company 2 was an overall great game. Crysis 2 sucked (online) and they then offer on disc DLC. -___-
The killstreaks required players to move around. Halo's melee attacks are also quick. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 had on-disc DLC.
i pretty much never played it online. i'll replay the story when the dx11 patch is out and that'll be the last time i pay $60 for a PC game, ever, ever.
I have tah buy it first!
I still play the MP. Better than Black Ops and MW2 for me for SURE. Also as much as the hit detection is off the map design is magnficent. I enjoy it, still lots of people playing, so I'll continue to play. :)
lag, lag, lag, lag, full of lag
Yeap playing the pc version atm but to say that ive only owned it on pc for like 2 weeks ;)
id rather wait for battlefield 3 than buying this!
Stupid invisibility killed this game for me
The console versions not having dedicated servers really put a damper on online play. I played the PS3 version for a week but overall was not liking it because of the constant lag and terrible hit detection. Online it had a low frame rate in a lot of parts and bad ghosting.
Total Crap honestly
I put in about 10 hours, which isn't a whole lot, but long enough to know the mp was trash. Terrible maps that don't take advantage of the suit Horrible spawn points Hit detection a bit iffy You can shoot through solid objects? Lag Lastly, the mp was just boring. Too many shooters out there to continue playing C2's mp.
The worst is terminal when you right when the match starts you spawn in front of an enemy, talk about unfair kill.
