Who else hates the Crysis 2 controls?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I finally got the game

I've played through Crysis and Warhead more times than I can count. Guess you could say I'm a fanatic. But with the new game, this whole combined suit power crap and no lean button thing... I hate it

Don't know if I'll ever get used to it

Console simplicity? I can't think of any other reason

... No.
Controls are perfect... and "normal" for gamers.

I've become used to it, and I have to say that I love it now.

It's kinda like what happened to me with the first Crysis: I hated it all at first because I wasn't exactly used to such a thing, but then I loved it once I was used to it.

For me, Nanosuit 2.0 really is a superior weapon. One of my many favorite things is being able to quickly pop out of cloak for just a split second for firing things that would otherwise drain all of my suit energy while cloaked. I mean damn: all I have to do is quickly tap E, Mouse 1, E (click, click, click in three rapid successions) and not one enemy has a clue of where I am.

Or, being able to fire silenced weapons without being uncloaked.

Or using Armor Mode to almost casually run away. It's like "Oh ow. Yeah. You're really hurting me. Yep. So, I'll be back in a few seconds once I've recharged."

Ha! It looks to me like he's just not used to the controls yet.

He's at the same point where I was: I still hated it, but I was used to it enough to where I could at least play effectively.



Edit: It kind of reminds me of why some people prefer Windows XP over Windows 7.

There were keyboard shortcuts in the first Crysis, so this maneuver was never impossible.

I think he's actually played it quite a lot. He is doing an Ironman on the hardest difficulty after all.

I know, but that required more than 1 keystroke to enter cloak mode, and more than 1 keystroke to come out (well, unless you press 4). In Crysis 2, it's one keystroke, and it's the same key both times to pop out and back into Cloak Mode.

Oh I know, but he's still showing signs that he's not used to it.

One example is that when he wants to disable Armor Mode to recharge, he sometimes cloaks for a brief moment first and then instantly uncloaks. This is because he intended to press Q to disable Armor Mode for the purpose of recharging, but sometimes presses E instead.

Not only that, but he even said it himself that he's not completely used to it yet (although, I think he doesn't have to say it because there are times where it's painfully obvious).


I suppose it's time for me to list some other things I love about Nanosuit 2.0:

I can take advantage of Strength Mode (Power Mode) while cloaked or while in Armor Mode. This allows me to jump at the maximum height, run at the maximum speed, and it allows me to steady my aim - three things that are very important to be able to do while in either Cloak or Armor Mode (without having to switch modes for a brief moment).

Oh man, and don't get me started on the suit modules. Those things are awesome. Although, NanosuitNinja makes a good point: he doesn't feel like a true ninja when any of his suit modules are enabled. So, he only uses them when he absolutely has no choice.

Although, don't get me wrong: I still think I enjoy the first Crysis just a little bit more because I force the Koreans to speak English while using Delta, and it makes the entire game become a huge comedy. I don't really get that experience in Crysis 2. Well, at least not yet.

It's essentially the act of treating it like it's real life: you only get one life and that's it. If you die, then you have to start all over from the very beginning. So NanosuitNinja took it a couple steps further and has his own custom difficulty configuration as well as having the auto-save disabled.

Ninjas use swords instead of weapons... not an insult, just made me really smile, playing game without playing it... or listening to song with all speakers disabled except sub-woofer? imo funny

Nice idea, however, to try it with one life Now i have to try it

Best part of Crysis 2 is that it isn't Crysis 1. Enemies that don't die, you need 100 bullets to kill anything... I dunno, but crysis never cached my attention apart from trying new hardware. But Crysys 2... i've done it 3 times Really enjoyed it. Hated only that you can't skip movies...

I have to confess that as soon as I heard him say it, I was like, "But..... um.... but, dude: the modules are awesome!" However, it had a positive impact on my game! I mean, I used to essentially depend on Nano Recharge while almost being somewhat afraid to use Armor Enhance or Deflection due to the slower energy recharge rate. So, thanks to NanosuitNinja, I've now finally started enjoying using Deflection when it's more practical - such as when I want to piss of a Heavy Devastator for the lulz.

So his extremely practical approach to the suit modules kinda gave me a greater freedom, almost like I didn't know before that it's ok to switch modules because guess what: it ain't gonna kill me. lol

I'm also trying to use a silenced pistol more often now thanks to him because of the large number of shots I get while cloaked! It's amazing!

I wish you luck. Now if only we could find a way to disable the auto-saves like we can in the first Crysis.

Note: for best results, only play Crysis when you've only been awake for a few hours. I find that if I wait until I've been awake for 12 hours or longer, then I end up playing horribly. So when I play just a couple of hours after waking up, I find the entire game to be extremely easy. Of course, I have nothing better to do.

I think they can be skipped now in Patch 1.4, although I can't remember. I keep watching them anyway because I'm a fanatic: I like to experience the entire thing all the way through each and every single time. As soon as I start skipping things, I end up losing interest in everything else because then the rest of the game gradually becomes more and more hollow, empty, and meaningless.

Speaking of the increased difficulty: as soon as you can, make sure you acquire the Grendel (I can't remember when it first becomes available). The Grendel is very much like a miniature HMG due to its power. It usually takes 2-3 single-fire shots to kill a Ceph Grunt, about 5-6 to kill a Ceph Grunt Commander, and a whole bunch to kill a Heavy Devastator (about 1.5x or perhaps 2x as many as the HMG). Well, if a Grunt Commander enables his Armor Mode, then of course you'll need to give him a few more rounds - the same is true for those little guys, which I think are called Stalkers.

In other words: the Grendel is freakin' AWESOME. I freakin' love that gun! It's seriously my favorite weapon in the entire game. In full automatic mode, a Ceph Grunt can be killed with one twitch of the trigger because it quickly fires 3 rounds (when you're relatively up close and personal) tehehehe Caution: it has a relatively short range compared to the SCAR and SCARAB!

Anyway, regarding the first Crysis: I think one of the main reasons why it's still better than Crysis 2 is because there are almost no limits; it's like we have greater control and a more realistic interaction with the world. I also have to confess that I'm finally beginning to wish I could prone in Crysis 2.
