Crysis 2′s first 20 minutes gets capped – see it in HD now

Friday, 25th March 2011 12:17 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Ve3tro‘s directly captured the first 20 minutes of Crysis 2. We haven’t watched it as we want to stay clean, but it’s after the break for you, should you need it. The Crytek shooter, which gained impressive reviews earlier this week, releases today in Europe for PS3, 360 and PC. Thanks, Reece.

    This footage for PS3 or 360?

    I’ll be getting the PS3 version as I hear it has a consistant framerate?

    Can’t you tell? I thought the A and B buttons appearing made it very clear.

    @3 doesn’t sound like there “is” a best version, at least going by Digital Foundry and Lens of Truth, the only two (sort of) tech analysis I could find.

    360 has a slightly higher resolution but wobbles a bit more when hectic. PS3 has some better textures and no screen tear vs a tiny bit of 360 screen tear.

    Both have pop in and various little graphical glitches.

    I’ve managed to compare both thanks to a friend and really, when playing there’s very little to notice though. I’d just get whichever you prefer either for online with friends, controller or whatever.

    The most boring FPS of the year so far. KZ3 slaughters this game. Great engine but too much motion blur and the A.I. is dumber than O’Connor which makes it really really shitty then.

    Do not buy this game full priced. Its a $40 title at best. Go play one of SONY’s many exclusives they have dropped so far this year and wait until this holiday season when Bestbuy will be selling it for $35. That way you can play without the pressure of hype and you’ll enjoy it better for what its really worth.

    Sadly very true TEA.

    I’m pretty disappointed in the PC version. The AI is pretty much the worst thing. On the difficulty that reads “Test yourself against challenging enemies” you’re pretty much in Godmode. I had to start the game over from the beginning, because it only allows you to turn the difficulty down, not up. Ridiculous.

    And that’s not to mention the fact that they’ve managed to lock thousands of customers out of the game by using Gamespy logins.

    Essentially anyone with their e-mail account attached to an old Gamespy login will be unable to use their MyCrysis login in the game. That means I can’t claim my nickname and play multiplayer, and if I use a temporary account, that’ll tie my serial and Limited Edition code to it.

    Basically, I can’t play online until they get their asses in gear.

    Terrible, terrible launch. Steer well clear.

    The fact that you have to often deal with 3rd party shit like Gamespy is why I hate PC gaming, I’ll put up with that shit for a good RTS like Dawn of War or Company of Heroes though. The only exception to this is if the console version is a cut down game (to the extent that it’s an entirely different game) in the same sense that Wii & DS games are, but thankfully I haven’t found anything like that yet.

    Its a good looking game but man its basically COD with powers. The next COD game after MW3 would be this a futuristic Crysis rip off I’m sure. The first bunch of missions you’re playing cat chase the mouse type missions….WTF!? I have this power suit that has limitations? WHY?! The batman suit from batman beyond doesn’t have a timer on the cloak why does this one….oh because that would mean I could just sneak past the enemies in the whole game? WRONG!

    Say you do alert a guard and he starts coming your way. You activate cloak and bam you think you’re safe so you then creep past him while he goes in the other direction right?…..WRONG! The dumb A.I. lets him stay glued to you like a magnet and as soon as your power for the cloak goes down you’re spotted…..WOW! Awesome A.I. Crytek. Heres another you can run pass all the enemies and not get hit by one bullet but as soon as you pass all the enemies they all become fucking sharpshooters all of a sudden with everyone having 100% accuracy of hitting you in the back….WTF? How does something running super fast and further away make you target and shoot better? I’m confused Crytek….Did you put all the resources in graphics to try and compete with KZ3 or something?

    I rather play Bulletstorm than this. If it wasn’t for the easy trophies I wouldn’t even bother I’d throw this up on craiglist or ebay get back $45 wait until a couple of years until I see it in the back of a K-Mart collecting dust for $15 and then buy it while trying to negotiate a lower paying price for it. Oh and the story…what story :(

    @8 you have no idea and I thought psychotext and Mike was bad.

    P.S. You wonder why Erthzus has been so quiet lately? Its because his precious Crysis 2 have failed him and he knows it :D PEW PEW PEW KZ3!4life.

    @11 Same here. I think they are both great games. Although the multiplayer for Crysis 2 on PC is pretty fucked at the moment, it needs a patch ASAP.

    @8, it’s because i’m playing SHOGUN 2: TOTAL WAR . GOTY of this year and i have an absolutely fantastic gaming experience while you don’t have. you can go and play your shitty 80+ rated metacritic games

    Crysis 2 i already finished and while it’s a disapointment, it’s still at the same boat as Killzone 3 which is exactly COD in space. They both equal with dissapointments.

    “oh because that would mean I could just sneak past the enemies in the whole game? ”

    because of the balance you TWAT.

    Everyone on my friends list who had Crysis day 1 played about 5 hours straight and then went back to KZ3 and played that for the remainder of the day.

    It just doesn’t live up to the hype and thats what killed it for me. You have no attachment to the character you’re playing as and his name is fucking retarded. At least with Sev and Rico you have a connection and a reason why you’re fighting. This guy is just rambo in a super cyborg suit. Honestly I rather use Raiden with Otacons camo gear at leats that way I can run backwards super fats and deflect bullets with my sword at the same time.

    That’s not what i hear from friends. They are very impressed with the A.I. and most reviews say so as well. They do talk about bugs that lets A.I. do strange things.

    On Digital Foundry i read that the differences between 360 and PS3 aren’t big at all, and sometimes the framerate is better on 360.That’s what i understand from it.

    #16 3 years ago
  17. theevilaires

    ^Yea if my console of choice had no games coming out for it this year too I’d be very generous and praise any decent shit I got on it I guess. Do XBOTs even know what good A.I. is anymore…..Gears 2 was so long ago. Anyway the PS3 ver has no issue whatsoever with frame rate but the 360 does have tearing like crazy. Seems the cry engine maybe a little too much for the Zenon chip. Cell on the other hand is running like a champ and can easily handle the engine….look at KZ3 for example ;)

    #17 3 years ago
  18. Moonwalker1982

    That’s nonsense , there’s plenty of great games coming this year for both 360 and PS3. And again…tearing and horrible framerate? It’s not what my friends are reporting. And they just like me have been gaming ever since we were 5.

    I could be wrong, but you sound like a fanboy, and probably the PS3.

    #18 3 years ago
  19. Toastrules

    @12 Exactly! Thats exactly what I thought of when I tried both demos on the PC and Ps3: This is Call of Duty with super powers. The guns are like lasers, and all this game is, is point and click until they’re dead. There is no ‘burst fire’, no ‘walking up to get closer’, it’s lasers.

    Meanwhile I’m staying away from this game. Way too many FPSs releasing this year, and I don’t think they’re going to understand that they’re never going to dethrone CoD. Good for the gamers, I guess. Keep the 8 year olds, and the casuals, away from Killzone and Battlefield.

    #19 3 years ago
  20. Moonwalker1982

    And are you actually saying you have a connection to Rico? Hell..i guess you do, a hate connection that is. What a annoying ass dude and i didn’t give two shits during the story of KZ2 and i doubt KZ3′s gonna change that. So saying KZ3 has that and C2 hasn’t is just nonsense, they both don’t have it then.

    #20 3 years ago
  21. spiderLAW

    @20
    Actually moon, they did bring a much bigger depth to the characters this time around. Rico isnt a run and gun asshole like he was in KZ2. He actually displays emotions of fear, pride, strength, worry, doubt, and perseverance. Sev also displays these characteristics but he is more of a well rounded individual with a good head on his shoulders. Really, Sev is a fucking G! in KZ3.
    Killzone 3 has it, but im not sure about Crysis 2…im taking TEA’s advice and holding off on Crysis2 till its on sale.

    #21 3 years ago
  22. Moonwalker1982

    Hmmm, ok that’s good then. Stupid of reviewers to not mention that, they actually said that there wasn’t any emotional connection or whatsoever.

    I have no reason to follow his advice cause frankly…he sounds like a damn fanboy to me. He says the PS3 is able to run the C2 engine fine and the 360 not, funny…that’s not what i read in Digital Foundry’s article and that’s not what i hear from several other people. I hear the differences really aren’t that big at all.

    So TTA said that….Digital Foundry says —->

    There’s little doubt that the Xbox 360 is the cleaner, crisper experience and for the most part it commands a small but significant frame-rate advantage and fewer little glitches; especially outside of combat scenarios, the game just seems to run that much more smoothly.

    #22 3 years ago
  23. spiderLAW

    Check Lens of Truths analogy, it isnt just observation or speculation but actual data.

    PS3 actually has some better textures and lighting (closer mimics the PC version) and also has VSync which makes it have 0% screen Tears but also causes the framrate to drop to 25fps a few times.
    Xbox360 doesnt have Vsync which causes it to screen tear but it does have a better framerate most of the time.
    Overall they are pretty identical.

    Sometimes 360 looks better, and at times PS3 does. Sometime Xbox framerate drops(lowest recorder 27fps) and sometimes PS3(lowest recorded 25fps) which is a very small, unnoticeable difference.
    Ps3 has no screen tearing but Xbox does HOWEVER the xbox’s screen tear is at a small 2% so its nothing to worry about really.

    So basically, buy it on the console you are most comfortable with. I am taking TEA’s advice on the gameplay though. He knows quality gameplay and usually hits the mark with his advice on the subject. I have argued against his judgement over gameplay (AI, controls, fun, etc.) and he has proved me wrong….so yeah, just my 2 cents.

    Nothing is going to dethrone COD but the people themselves. Activison has the magic formula with perfect timing and reusable engine that most games are just helplessly hypnotized by. I blame M$ for over saturating the market with the FPS genre. They used people competitiveness egos + XBOX LIVE to pave this generation of being FPS genre dominate and it has hurt the industry not only from a consumer point but as a game developers point too.

    Everyone is forced to make FPS because the consumer is brainwashed and so caught up in leader boards and K/D ratios that gamers are neglecting other genres. So when you have everyone trying to copy COD like crysis is just with super powers you immediately get bored after realizing or experiencing the games gimmicks (clock,super speed, armor suit, super strength) that its just COD again and you might as well play COD. Like I said its all M$ fault for how the game industry is the way it is now.

    Over saturated FPS land because they jump the gun early on next gen and didn’t have any talent to make any other genre other than a slew of FPS and use that primary to promote XBOX LIVE which has cause the online shooting craze and has stopped industry growth of many other genres causing many devs to go bankrupt who though making a FPS and releasing it would be the next best thing in an already over saturated FPS market.

    HENCH WHY CRYSIS 2 SUCKS.

  25. Gadzooks!

    I’ll be picking up Crysis 2 this weekend. 360 version naturally as I dont like gaming through a haze of vaseline!

    It’s nice to have another shooter besides Halo that allows a bit of freedom of approach to combat and isnt just another case of duck hunt sections strung together by cutscenes.

    I’m so terribly bored with corridor shooters, and KZ3 is as heavily scripted and corridor-like as the recent COD’s. KZ has become very stale for a series only 3 games old. It desparately needs something to lift it above the ‘CoD in space’ image it has.

    #25 3 years ago
  26. Moonwalker1982

    Crysis 2 has zero to do with COD if you ask me. It destroys it. I am beyond tired of COD and it’s great to see a FPS like Crysis 2. One that offers a lengthy campaign, and a great MP mode that to me feels very different than COD.

    @25, haze of vaseline? :)

    And i’m not gonna judge on the A.I. before i play it myself. I hear that they really try to flank you, sometimes give chase…are challenging.

    Moon you don’t even have the game LOL and you’re trying to prove me wrong. Go ahead buy the game and I bet you resell it within 2 weeks. Crytek goal it seems 1st was to be able to mimic the console versions to look close to the PC ver then worry about the other stuff later.

    It looks good I’ll give it that and Gears 3 may have a hard time but Uncharted 2, God of War 3, and KZ3 look better. As a FPS I prefer KZ3 because the motion blur in Crysis makes it seem like they are trying to hide something. Flying bullets don’t cause the word to become blurry in real life. Its like a fast motion bullet time effect. Whats up with all the blur. KZ3 doesn’t hide behind blurriness. Its sharp and clean every time you fire your gun.

    The Cry engine is awesome its just not done properly in Crysis 2 for the PS3 is all I can say. The game it self is just so boring though you don’t give a shit about anyone or anything. Its just go here now go there. COD isn’t like that. In Black Ops when you infiltrate Castro’s Mansion you know what you’re getting yourself into and where you have to go and what you have to do. If anyone says Crysis has a better story than KZ2 smack them and take their gamer card away.

    Also the game looks very good in 3D. Yes I did play the game in both 720P and 1080p upscale….it makes no difference.

  28. Moonwalker1982

    I highly doubt i will sell my copy when i get it. My bro and friends all love the game, and most of the time we all agree on that. I can’t agree with you about COD..the campaign didn’t do anything for me and the Castro mission really didn’t feel special or that cool to me.

  29. reask

    I have to totally disagree with you TEA on the MS been responsible for the FPS popularity in fact I would say you are been a tad mischievous. ;)

    I started doing my main gaming on PS2 and it was mostly FPS games I played.
    I do dip in and out of other genres but that remains my fav.
    Thing about them is they are good fun and when done well are superb.
    I tend to get snatch points for gaming so RPG and RTS games tend to bore me.
    Hell I only managed about 4 missions of MGS4 before turning it off.
    Games like GOW Bayonetta and such like I tend to put in to the button mashing category.
    I did enjoy Fallout 3 but the end was a let down for me.

    Maybe MS managed to tap in to that market more so but they were not responsible for it.
    Most folks game for fun and FPS games supply that fix imo.

    Side note on KZ3:
    I have not picked it up as I was disappointed with 2 so held off.
    I might rent out 3 later to see what its like as crysis seems to be getting a big thumbs down.
    Might see you later for a match and hand your backside to you. ;)

    Thats not the point I’m getting at. I’m saying once the coolness of the suits power fades away you find its just another COD really. If you can’t buy it go rent it or borrow it from a friend. When I first jumped in and you go through the first 20 min like the video above you think aww man this is cool but once that first 20 min goes by and you realize wait I don’t have to fight I can just own the dumb A.I. in many ways it gets boring.

    The A.I. to me is truly the biggest turn off for me. These guys do a bit of flanking but nothing on KZ3 level NOTHING! If they can use brute numbers they will all come out charging at you. I don’t care if its 15 on 1 you better believe all 15 of those guys want to go home to their wives and kids and would never say hey guys lets rush the guy with a automatic rifle and enough fire power/super powers to give us all closed casket funerals in real life. Everyone of those 15 guys vs that 1 guy will use flanking tactics to take him down just like they do in KZ3. I’m going to go get HomeFront right now if the A.I. is better than Crysis 2 I’m going to LMFAO!

    Crysis 2 PS3 visuals and Xbox 360s visuals = Same
    Crysis 2 PS3 framrate and Xbox 360s framrate = Same
    Crysis 2 PS3 Screen Tear and Xbox360s screen tear = Same (sorta, PS3 has none but 360 has 2% but 2% is basically like having none.)

    Anybody arguing those facts are doing it out of plain bias and favortism for one console…Blind

    There’s absolutely no denying the retarded AI in Crysis 2, if you’ve actually played it. I can’t believe a games writer would dare to write otherwise.

    As soon as you stealth, they just freeze and look at where you were last. They might fire a shot or two in that direction, but it does absolutely fuck all, while you just slide around and tear them to shreds.

    At least throw some grenades, at least try to close on me when I’m obviously trying to sneak away – Nope! No such brains. They just freeze, and wait politely for me to kill them. Which hasn’t changed even a little from the “supposedly challenging” difficulty to the next to hardest.

    And if one guy actually decides to pursue you when you duck away somewhere, he’ll make sure to go alone, just so none of his buddies has his back in case you decide to headshot him, which you pretty much always will.

    It’s a far cry from the AI in Far Cry.

    Also I’m surprised that VG247 isn’t running a story on the fact that an apparently significant ammount of people who bought the game are unable to play it online or redeem their codes because Crytek fucked up the login/account system. What’s this weeks sitewrap?

    #34 3 years ago
  35. jacobvandy

    I’ve not finished the game yet, but what happened to the “three dimensional” combat? They kept saying in promos that you’d have to be aware of your surroundings including above you, but aside from the rare gunship you’re supposed to shoot down, I’ve never had to look up for enemies…

    #35 3 years ago
  36. Moonwalker1982

    @DSB

    But those are not just the A.I. bugs reviews spoke of? I can’t believe how many reviews out there praise the A.I. like it’s the messiah or something. But from what i hear here…it’s really not all that.

    #36 3 years ago
  37. DSB

    @Moonwalker1982 Yeah, if only it were bugs. That would be patchable.

    I’ve seen one definite bug where two CELL try to take cover behind the same object, leaving one totally exposed, making a walking animation towards his buddy.

    It’s pretty fundamentally stupid though. I’m surprised it hasn’t taken some flak for it. Invisibility would be less of a Godmode if only they’d try to close on you as soon as you cloak, but as long as they stay in place like they don’t care, without even tossing a few grenades, there’s nothing stopping you just running around and shooting them in the ass.

    The AI do shoot you instantly, and the “Oh shit” moments usually come from soldiers that you haven’t spotted, who open up on you as soon as you shoot at their buddies. Sadly they’re fine with letting you make every move you want.

    ASURAshadow LOL @ the people saying Crysis AI is bad. It’s much better than most other shooters and most importantly it’s dynamic. You fight in some huge open areas and the AI will actually vary it’s tactics. I’ll take that kind of AI even with an occasional glitch anyday over the typical corridor shooter AI. (20 minutes ago)

  41. DSB

    True, secondhand disappointment is only half as bitter. Get it straight from the source :P

    Basically it plays like F.E.A.R. 2. That’s the reference that keeps popping into my head. No spooky sections obviously, but the action is extremely similar, visually as well.

    #41 3 years ago
  42. spiderLAW

    @41
    I liked F.E.A.R. 2′s action lol!

    #42 3 years ago
  43. DSB

    Well if you liked F.E.A.R. 2 then Crysis 2 will be orgasmic.

    Personally I loved the original, the second one just bored me with the whole raving techno-style.

    Example of AI: A group of guys get tasked to move in and kill me. They arrive on the scene, and immediately start walking around slowly like they don’t have a care in the world, not even looking around. They’re sent in to kill this invisible supersoldier, and they don’t even have their weapons at the ready. Darwin award!

    Example of AI: I get into a firefight and take out 2-3 guys at a chokepoint before cloaking. A second after I disappear a guy comes over their radios and goes “No contact. It’s clear.” to which everybody else apparently relaxes and stops worrying about the fact that I just murdered their buddies 10 feet away from them. It was all a mirage!

    Example of story: Everybody’s trying to kill you based on a misunderstanding. Yes! Everybody is shooting at you because apparently you don’t have time to explain that they’re mistaking you for someone else.

    It’s so stupid you feel like slapping yourself in the face. Is it a Charlie Chaplin movie or an evil alien invasion movie? Make up your minds! :P

    Also:

  44. Gekidami

    Yeah, i’ve heard the AI seriously sucks. Like enemies running on the spot or in circles. And when you enter stealth you seem to erase the enemies memory of you at the same time.

    That tends to be a massive problem with games that try to have invisibility as a gameplay element; Either the enemies treat you activating it like you suddenly stopped existing and are no longer a threat, or the enemies ignore the stealth and can seemingly see you, plain as day.

    Funnily enought Arkham Asylum seems to handle the main character suddenly disappearing best, with the enemies going through several emotional phases depending on how many of them are left. They get more and more cautious intill the last one is too terrified to function properly.

    @ 39 and 40.

    I’d play it if this certain online store had sent my copy. But now it seems i won’t be playing it in the weekend. So i gotta wait..ah well, there are worse things. But i expect to really enjoy it though.

    #45 3 years ago
  46. DSB

    @44 Very true, I was thinking about that. That’s really been the problem with the original as well.

    Invisibility is so unbalanced by definition that it makes for a pretty bad superpower in a game, where you’re supposed to be challenged. Bullet time like in F.E.A.R. or oppositely some kind of super speed, or super aim (like VATS in the new Fallouts) would be a lot more fun.

    All I have to say is I bought the game today, I had been convinced by some very enthsiastic reviews I read, but till now (couple of hours of the campaign + same thing multiplayer) this must be the most overrated game ever. Like, for real. Ok graphics are cool (not THAT good tbh), but enemies are dumb and the most generic I’ve seen on screen in ages!
    Btw, I finished Killzone 3 yesterday, and after playing a bit of this, it made me wanna go back to Guerrilla’s masterpiece! No joke, this ain’t no better than KZ3…

    People, people: this ain’t got nothing to do with console war; the game is just NOT THAT GOOD. Period. They tried to push it for the visuals, but there ain’t no interesting art direction whatsoever, so it all ends up a detailed, but mediocre setting. Plus the multiplayer is a BIG let down… graphics are a WHOLE LOT worse, it plays like CoD but the guns feel even less powerful (KZ3 remains miles ahead as for that matter), and the nanosuit just feels like a limitation instead of a great tool… I had to get back to KZ3 multiplayer after a couple of maches.

    @49

    I doubt i’m gonna be agreeing on that about the MP. I played the MP demo to death and can’t wait to try out all the 10 maps . (i know the two from the demo0 I absolutely loved that, at first i was like…hey this is nice, but soon it went to ..damn this sweet!!!!

    A friend of mine actually said yesterday that the graphics are surprisingly good in the MP too. I then asked him ‘ok cool…but it’s probably nowhere near how it looks in the campaign,right? And he said the difference really wasn’t that crazy big.

    I guess at the end of the day it’s all a matter of opinion. I personally loved the MP demo and expect the MP to be really fun in the full game when i can finally play it, and i expect a great campaign too. We’ll see…soon enough.

    I think you’ll like the game Moon. I just tried it out on xbox360 retail copy, its cool but i will be returning it to my friend today. But i think its more to your liking.

    @DSB
    I didnt like it as much as FEAR2.
    I liked FEAR2 more than Just Cause 2 ;)

    On this other forum i read something from a fellow gamer, he said even though the A.I. can fuck up sometimes,there are very cool moments as well.

    “I sneaked behind a guard, stealthed killed him, 3 secons later i hear his radio going off, dude on the other say asking why he ain’t responding.
    This dude is standing on the otherside of the level and he really goes up to where you are to check on him, he then sees him and asks for backup immediately. They also try to flank you and throw grenades at you like a crazy mofo.”

    Some people are making it out to be the dumbest A.I. ever, but i really wouldn’t say that when the above stuff happens too.

    @52 Well, the problem with that is that you’re not going to appreciate that guy checking on his buddy because you have things to do, and don’t want to hang around.

    It’s like a small scene that makes no difference to the game at all, and AI wise it’s little more than a waypoint on the map. It’s not exactly complex.

    I’m yet to be flanked by anyone on the next to hardest setting. Generally they stick to their cover and wait to be killed. On the harder difficulty, the challenge is in the hordes of enemies that constantly get spawned onto the map, and your position can get swarmed, but once they arrive at your last known position, they just group up and again wait to be cut down if you’re out of sight.

    It has obviously not been about making the individual enemy challenging for Crytek, it’s just about numbers.

    I’m sure you can find comments saying that it’s the most intelligent game in human history if you look long enough. You’re obviously entitled to believe that, but the reality is very different. It’s not a question of stupidest ever or not, it’s just a question of not living up to the hype, or the games past.
