    Ps3 left in the dust in multiplatform space as always. This gen needs to end fast.

    Sony just started the right direction with NGP, i hope PS4 will have the same treatment with good hardware and not this shit like: We got Cell processor!! It’s shit, but we will market it like a Future 2030 year tech so our Sony loyalists can suck our for 599$ and Giant Enemy crabs with massive damage… Trololo.

    lol Seeing PC fanboys swoon over this game yet hate on CoD is hilarious.

    Sorry to break it to you, but this games MP is so similar to CoD, it could have been call ‘Call of Duty: Future Marines’ and no one would have noticed the difference.
    The game looking better on PC wont change that fact.

    @3 Wow bro, 1920×1200 @ 60fps? You must get all the chicks.

    My 360 runs Crysis 2 at the same res and FPS, so I’m all happy!

    “Sorry to break it to you, but this games MP is so similar to CoD”

    Geki, it’s not Call Of duty, because you fucking don’t know your roots again.

    Crysis 2 multiplayer is straight from the first game that was launched with Modern Warfare.

    but to be more precise it’s exactly the same as FAR CRY 1 that was in 2005 and it’s not Call Of duty. The main shooting mechanics are from Counter-strike.
    If you never played them, sorry.
    Call Of duty btw is exactly stripped counter-strike so you would know.

    @Fin,
    “My 360 runs Crysis 2 at the same res”

    1080p you mean? On the 360? :D…

    “and FPS”

    with low-medium graphics? XD

    @9
    Why do the roots even matter? They obviously dont in regards to CoD.

    The facts:

    -PC fanboys love to hate on CoD’s gameplay along with other things about the game.

    -Crysis 2′s game play is idenitical, but not only that, EVERYTHING else in the games MP besides stealth and maximum armour are obviously copied straight from CoD.

    If you’re suddenly going to change position on CoD’s gameplay because its close to several other older games then i expect you to cut CoD some slack, and never say anything negative about the series again.
    In the meantime, you can pretend Crysis 2′s gameplay isnt like CoD’s all you want, and you no doubt will like many other PC fanboys. It wont change much to the fact that Crysis 2′s MP IS CALL OF DUTY WITH NANO SUITS.

    lol?
    lolwut?
    u must be joking. COD is the exact opposite of counterstrike.
    CS has no perks, no killstreak, no prestige no nothing. Just u and ur gun. and regardless of wether u played 1 minute or 1 life long, everyone gets the same possibilities.
    It is pure and raw, skill is key. COD is entirely different.

    “CS has no perks, no killstreak, no prestige no nothing.”

    Because it’s called META gameplay and meta gaming was created long time ago and to be honest, this thing is OK for modern shooters.
    What makes CoD look like a counter strike is gameplay, not META gameplay.

    @Gekidami, “-PC fanboys love to hate on CoD’s gameplay along with other things about the game.”

    So you are calling PC gamers PC fanboys because they hate a Call Of duty game?
    Do you understand that people just don’t like it and call it Casual at best for a reason and they don’t like it for a REASON?
    Running and Gunning gameplay was long time ago since Quake 2-3 Arena.
    Call Of duty btw have a lot in common with Quake 3, except for mechanics. They are different because settings are also different.

    “obviously copied straight from CoD.”

    Like what? Shooting? Throwing grenade? Jump? Duck? OMG, every game is copied from Call Of duty then i guess even Doom 1 and Half-Life O:

    ” Crysis 2’s gameplay isnt like CoD’s all you want”

    Because it’s not. It is absolutely different feeling.
    I never played Crysis 2 multiplayer, but Crysis 1 multiplayer is different.
    Stealth, maximum armor and strength were huge features.

    Hey, if you played Call OF Duty a lot, that does not mean that after 400 hours of playing this game you need to call every shooter a Call Of duty copy cat.
    Next Counter-Strike you will also call Call Of duty right because there is also shooting?

    @KBST, “Running at 60fps (=120fps in 2d)/dx11/1080p/3d with full details? Not even a 580 will be able to handle that.”

    Not even 580 can handle that? :D O’RLY?
    To run Crysis 2 on max you need TX 460 and decent Quad core processor. With 3d? 470.

    @Stolen glory
    “Erth – I am looking to upgrade my rig and I was looking into getting a stereoscopic 3D capable card + monitor – what do you suggest?”

    GTX 470 (PALIT) 1280 MB + Samsung rz 2233 + Nvidia 3D vision kit from Amazon = cheapest way to achieve everything on max with decent cost and 3D this generation.

    “So you are calling PC gamers PC fanboys because they hate a Call Of duty game?”
    -No, but PC fanboys (and i’m making a clear distiction between gamers and the whiny, hypocritical fanboys) are the most vocal about their distaste for CoD and claim to prefer the more realistic feel from games like BF. Crysis 2 is nothing like Battlefield and all like CoD.

    “Do you understand that people just don’t like it and call it Casual at best for a reason and they don’t like it for a REASON?
    Running and Gunning gameplay was long time ago since Quake 2-3 Arena.”

    -This barely makes sense, but i assume you’re saying that people dont like CoD because its run’n'gun and therefore casual. So is Crysis 2, again; They’re the same.
    I get the impression you think Crysis 2 is some sort of near-sim military shooter where guns have realistic bullet physics and being carful is the best strategy, prepare to be disappointed.

    “Like what? Shooting? Throwing grenade? Jump? Duck? OMG, every game is copied from Call Of duty then i guess even Doom 1 and Half-Life O:”
    -Perk system, kill streaks, death streaks, killcam, challenges, full custom classes, personalisable ID-card-like system with unlocks based on rewards. All pretty much lifted straight out of the CoD and in Crysis 2.
    And then theres the gameplay mechanics, note that i didnt say Crysis 2 or any game for that matter was copying CoD in mechanics, just that they’re exactly the same.

    “Because it’s not. It is absolutely different feeling.”
    -Nope, same gameplay mechanics. The only difference is stealth, maximum armour and and you can jump higher. These dont have a large enought impact on the gameplay that the features standout above the ones that are exactly the same as in CoD.

    “I never played Crysis 2 multiplayer.”
    -I have.

    “but Crysis 1 multiplayer is different.”
    -Moot point, this is Crysis 2, not the first one.

    “Hey, if you played Call OF Duty a lot, that does not mean that after 400 hours of playing this game you need to call every shooter a Call Of duty copy cat.”
    -I’m not, only the obvious copy cats, like Crysis 2.

    “Next Counter-Strike you will also call Call Of duty right because there is also shooting?”
    Shooting is a gameplay mechanic and i never said the gameplay mechanics were copying, just that they were identical. Thats what you call a strawman argument.
    If however a new CS game came out with not only identical gameplay to CoD but also a perk system, kill streaks, death streaks, killcam, challenges, full custom classes, and personalisable ID-card-like system with unlocks based on rewards. …Then yes, i’d say its copying CoD.

    Final point:
    I’m in no way saying that this is a bad thing, far from it. I’d love to see more games offer the amount of options CoD does and i find the Crysis 2 beta quite enjoyable. But people hating on one game then loving another which does exactly the same stuff is nothing but ridiculous hypocrisy and self-delusion.

    The multiplayer of Crysis 2 has nothing to do with Crytek, its good old Free Radical ripping off CoD.

    The original games Multi-player component (Crysis Wars) was superb. No one played it. It was dead from birth. With this second one they actually want people to play so they’ve gone with the game that people spend hours and hours of their time playing calling one another faggots.

    Don’t blame them.

    EDIT = I will say that the inclusion of the suit powers helps lighten everything up and make it less of a serious bznss pro-skills shooter than the CoD players make it out to be.

    I wont be playing any of the multiplayer judging by the 360 Demo, then again I never play CoD multiplayer either.

    “Buying a 470 days after the 560 has been released?
    Samsung RZ2233? Are you serious?”

    Have you read my comment? The cheapest way. Retard.

    “at 60fps? In what crazy world do you live in? In 3D you’ll need twice the amount of fps and you suggest a 470? Jesus, you really don’t know anything.”

    At 60 fps? Is not a problem. If you don’t have 3D vision kit get out of here. 470 is enough playing 50-60 fps on max in 3D with Crysis 2 that uses the same 2007 year old tech.

    I played METRO 2033 with 470 GTX on max that uses direct X 11 and you know what?
    GO FUCK YOURSELF. IT is perfectly smooth.

    @Geki,
    “Crysis 2 is nothing like Battlefield and all like CoD.”

    who said Crysis is Battlefield? Crysis is Half-Life on steroids with suit abilities.
    Call Of duty is different. Suit is a gameplay feature.

    “I get the impression you think Crysis 2 is some sort of near-sim military shooter where guns have realistic bullet physics and being carful is the best strategy, prepare to be disappointed.”

    It’s a different experience in Running and gunning gameplay. You have suit that gives you Stealth, Armor in certain situations, Strength. thats the reason why people are excited, besides you can slide, kick cars and etc. thats exciting and refreshing for running and gunning gameplay.

    With Call Of duty i’m just tired. Black Ops was fun i admit. I prestieged and forgot about it.
    I hope that Crysis 2 will push the destruction in some maps, like Crysis 1 had some destructive buildings.

    “Perk system, kill streaks, death streaks, killcam, challenges, full custom classes, personalisable ID-card-like system with unlocks based on rewards. All pretty much lifted straight out of the CoD and in Crysis 2.”

    I never saw this (i didn’t played the game yet so i don’t know.), but without these modern stupid features called META Gameplay you won’t have recognition in the gaming industry. Sad, but thats how it is, but that does not mean it is CALL OF Freakin DUTEY!

    So Killzone 3 is also Call Of duty copy cat because it has some running and gunning gameplay, perks, interesting machines? System with unlocks?

    OMG, yeaaaaaa it’s CoD… No it’s not. It have absolutely different mechanics and yes, Killzone 2-3 is much better than CoD and is something in between Counter-strike-Team Fortress-Battlefield but also is heavy on running and gunning gameplay. but it’s not Call Of duty because there are huge different CORE mechanics that makes a significant difference.

    “The only difference is stealth, maximum armour and and you can jump higher.”

    also with strength you can kill faster with arms. It’s a huge difference in the gameplay.

    I don’t know about the other versions, but the 360 Crysis 2 multiplayer is without doubt styled on CoD.

    Whether that’s a good or bad thing is down to taste, but the fact that it’s obviously so similar can’t be argued with.

    #27 4 years ago
  28. Erthazus

    @StolenGlory, Yeap… Only 1680×1050. But it’s the cheapest 3D monitor out there with at least 3 MS for 3D.

    If you want some serious shit with 3D and FULL HD i can show you few interesting monitors but they will require some investment… So go figure.

    @G1GAHURTZ, same old shit again. I remember you were saying about Crysis being as Halo. Where are these words?

    Hypocricy at it’s finest. If game have META-gameplay that does not mean it’s Call Of Duty styled.

    Twised Metal also is going to feature meta gaming at it’s highest possible version, but that does not mean it’s Call Of duty damn it.

    “So Killzone 3 is also Call Of duty copy cat because it has some running and gunning gameplay, perks, interesting machines? System with unlocks?”
    -I’d say that Killzone 2 & 3 have quite a few things based off CoD, yes. Your point being?

    “Also with strength you can kill faster with arms. It’s a huge difference in the gameplay.”
    -Theres no strenght. You just kill in one melee hit unless its again someone using maximum armour. theres no actual strenght skill you have to manually activate, unless i missed it.

    “If game have META-gameplay that does not mean it’s Call Of Duty styled.”
    -At this point you’re just hearing what you want to hear. Get this straight: THE GAMEPLAY MECHANICS ARE THE SAME TOO. Its not just the meta stuff, but the actual running around and shooting your weapons.
    Sure some stuff is added, like stealth and armour along with some movement tweaks but like i said, they dont at all outweigh the main mechanics that are identical to CoD.

    “Your point being?”

    that it’s not a Call Of duty game.

    OMG, Call Of duty then a Wolfenstein Rip Off…

    “-Theres no strenght. You just kill in one melee hit unless its again someone using maximum armour. theres no actual strenght skill you have to manually activate, unless i missed it.”

    It should be. In the first there was and it played a significant role. You don’t just jump with MAXIMUM STRENGTH.

    “THE GAMEPLAY MECHANICS ARE THE SAME TOO”

    because they are Not.

    OK. Lets stop here, i will play the demo and than judge it. Can’t argue with you much when i dind’t played it.

    I just remember the first one and it was a different experience to me.

    Button layout:

    Other than for grenades, the Crysis 2 button layout is exactly the same as CoD from the get go.

    I instantly knew what I was doing. I was sprinting, crouching, reloading, etc without having to think about it.

    Using the same buttons makes it easier for any of the 18 or so million CoD players to play your game.

    Killcams:

    Another CoD feature. Did Crysis have killcams?

    No!

    In game action anouncements:

    See above.

    Killstreak rewards at 3, 5 and 7 kills:

    Obvious feature copying is obvious.

    Etc, etc, etc…

    The game is based on CoD, because it’s good business sense.

    Given the choice of basing you’re game on a series that’s made well over TWO BILLION DOLLARS or the competition that can’t even come close, only a complete IDIOT would choose the competition.

    @30/32, There is certainly no strength option in the demo, you get armour and cloak. It may be that you can unlock different perks, but the demo is extremely limited in terms of unlocks.

    The one hit beatdown kill is one of the more ridiculous one hit kill melee mechanics. A knife is at least semi-believable. The air-elbow, bit less so.

    Already looking forward to Erth’s statement about the demo, when he sees that the time splitters maker had a close look @CoD when making the MP Part :P

    The realm of suit options has been combined into different things.

    Strength and armour into one and stealth into another, speed is, I think, initiated when you would normally run in Crysis 1.

    So theres no Maximum Strength grabbing of guys round the throat and throwing them at other guys. No punching through the roof of shacks to get at the guys underneath (mainly because its New York this time and the buildings are solid).

    Really alot of the silly awesome things you could do in Crysis has been removed.

    There will be nothing like this in Crysis 2 :

    “What makes CoD look like a counter strike is gameplay, not META gameplay.”

    u know unreal tournement also had the same gameplay. all shooters do.

    @Erth

    “Have you read my comment? The cheapest way. Retard.”

    They cost the same, but the 560 is pretty much an optimized 470.

    “At 60 fps? Is not a problem.”

    yeah, right. So all the benchmarks out there are lying, I guess.

    “If you don’t have 3D vision kit get out of here.”

    I don’t have a 3d nvidia happy meal and an old samsung monitor, I have an actual Panasonic 3DTV.

    “470 is enough playing 50-60 fps on max in 3D with Crysis 2 that uses the same 2007 year old tech.”

    If it uses the same tech then how come the 470 cant run Crysis 1 in full detail with 60fps/3d?

    “I played METRO 2033 with 470 GTX on max that uses direct X 11 and you know what?
    GO FUCK YOURSELF. IT is perfectly smooth.”

    Smooth meaning ~20fps(3d) at best? it wont even reach 60fps in 2D. You just went full retard. At least know when to shut the fuck up if you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

    Crysis 2 MP doesnt play exactly like COD, but it’s very very close.

    In fact the high jumps and nano suit abilites make it feel like a COD/Halo Hybrid.

    It felt very familiar but very uninspired. It is unfortunately nothing more than just another military shooter to go in the pile of almost identical military shooters.

    Maybe the SP campaign is radically different, but the MP is pure generic dullness.

    Hey Erth, I’ve got a GTX465 1GBGDDR5, think I’ll be ok?

    Only problem is, still running XP so i can’t reap the DX11 benefits. I really need to upgrade to W7..

    @41 Do yourself a favour mate and get yourself Windows 7 (64-bit edition is the better choice) as soon as. The performance increase will be quite a bit, as Windows XP caps your memory usage.

    Maybe they should focus on getting the one on the 360 to run properly first…stick to PC games if you can’t put out a properly working demo for console users
