“CryEngine is the best engine,” does what Unreal can’t – Crytek

You can’t make the same games with Unreal Engine that you can with CryEngine – but CryEngine could replicate anything made with Unreal or other engines, argues Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli.

Might be, but Crysis 2 was plain crap

Septic2632d ago

Crysis 2 was brilliant imo.

CrzyFooL2632d ago

Crysis 2 was linear, repetitive and a letdown for PC gamers.

Take that Quake logo off your avatar, traitor :-p

NuclearDuke2632d ago

Crysis 2 is one of the worst FPS games in ten years. It is terrible, the graphics was worse than Crysis and the gameplay reminded me of some korean MMOFPS.

Venjense2632d ago

Cryengine = great for PC, laughable for consoles (sub hd, bad framerate, grain bug on 360)

Montrealien2631d ago

So some people like the Crysis 2, and some people don't. Funny how that works, you know, human opinion.

Pandamobile2631d ago

Crysis 2 wasn't as good as Crysis 1, but to call it a bad game is just wrong.

laughable comments! Crysis 2 is technically a big step forward on consoles. for you PC Gamers maybe not, but really no need to call it crap. It's a great game. Best looking FPS on consoles along with the Killzone series.

Da One2632d ago

I don't believe they're complaining about the graphics....well in comparison to the first on PC yeah, but more or less how the gameplay turned out

Pl4sm42632d ago

uncharted 2 was a big step ....crysis 2 only had pretty awesome visuals ..... but the game is bloody repetitive (sneak or attack) while uncharted 2 was a dynamic cinematic gameplay with movie settings to a very epic ending

Persistantthug2631d ago

And to top it off,
Crysis 2 was SUB HD.

Crysis 2 is no technical marvel for consoles

SilentNegotiator2631d ago (Edited 2631d ago )

"Best looking FPS on consoles along with the Killzone series"

Sub-HD, no AA, blurry, some jumpy framerates and screen tearing......Nope. The console versions of Crysis 2 doesn't hold a candle to several other console games.

edit: It appears that another informed gamer (Persistantthug) beat me to it.

Other developers make fools out of Crytech's "graphical ceiling" console game. It just goes to show that just because you can create a resource consuming engine and effects, doesn't mean you're a marvel at programming.

Can't speak from personal experience but I hear Bulletstorm PC looks pretty phenomenal.

InNomeDiDio2632d ago

Bulletstorm looks also awesome on consoles on a good TV with LED and things.

outlawlife2631d ago

what does LED have to do with how good a game looks?

somebody doesn't understand tv's

InNomeDiDio2631d ago

LED and THINGS, I have a 23" Acer TV-TFT with LED and a lot of other Specials according to colors etc. It's like day and night compared to my older HDTV which was actually pretty good. I'm glad you understand TV'S.

outlawlife2631d ago (Edited 2631d ago )

LED is simply the backlight method...really has nothing to do with the screen specs. It may sometimes effect the color simply due to the positioning of the lights or the type of lighting such as edge lighting.

I have an older Samsung LCD with a CCFL backlight that easily competes with my new LED samsung. I also have a few Asus(Acer) monitors and 2 apple cinema displays in my home office.

I'm a design professional, I work in games, and I know my equipment.

Touting your screen has "LED and a lot of other Specials according to colors", doesn't really shout proficiency with the subject from your end.

While your screen may look good, you have no earthly idea why.

A display does not change the source. If a game is done well a good display will only enhance it. Games that are good looking will still look good across a variety of displays, including SD displays.

wicko2631d ago

Bit of a correction - it certainly helps black levels when your TV has local dimming.

crysis 2 was good imo. yeah sure that it didnt have a bigger graphics jump like the first one but nonetheless it was a great game and a interesting story unlike the first one which imo didnt make sense.

Cmpunk2632d ago

i fear for them' there the wrong company to have a timesplitters ip, not even the great free radical members could save them

european_cannon2631d ago


How stupid is this site sometimes.

Heartnet2631d ago

Its not :) Unreal with never be beaten in terms of flexibility and ease of Use and the quality it produces.

I dont remember Crysis 2 running at a stable frame rate at all on consoles. And the PS3 version wasnt HD (dont know about the 360 version).

Unreal Engine does HD.

Venjense2632d ago (Edited 2632d ago )

Yep and on 360 Crysis 2 looks like shit half way through the campaign. Theres this horrible looking grain bug that makes lines go across the screen and turns the normal small dots of grain into big rectangles essentially making the game look like it suffers from bad cable reception.

I'd rather play with unreal graphics anyday - better framerate, resolution and no grain bug.

The Media hasn't said anything but an 113 page thread on the 360 Crysis 2 forum demonstrates that a lot of 360 owners think the Cryengine is crap.

113 pages is A LOT of pages for a thread...Crytek totally ignored it while admiring to the bug too.

SilentNegotiator2631d ago

"And the PS3 version wasnt HD (dont know about the 360 version)"

Both were sub-HD, PS3 version had the lower resolution.

The Meerkat2632d ago

I couldn't care what engine a game runs on.

Its the vision of the devs that is the most important.

Fishy Fingers2632d ago (Edited 2632d ago )

You'd still need the right tech (engine) to make your vision a reality. Games dont run on cool ideas.

CaptCalvin2631d ago

Too bad most devs today don't run on vision/passion. They run on money and publisher deadlines.

Urrakia342632d ago

I'm getting sick of Crytek's talk about the CryEngine. Just please show me something amazing already.

Tachyon_Nova2632d ago (Edited 2632d ago )

This is actually a duplicate from a story that was run about a month ago, so don't get angry at Crytek for talking too much.

In any case, if you want to check out some amazing stuff, check out the Crymod site, specifically the CE3 Art thread. Some of the stuff in there is phenomenal.

EDIT: To make it easier on you guys, here is the link to the Crymod CE3 art page: - I suggest you skip towards the back if you want to see the best work, but right the way through you will find amazing screens that blow any other engine out of the water.
