Crysis 2 is CRAP! - Page 5

post #41 of 85
The main problem I have with crysis is it will always be a generic sci fi military shooter. It suffers the same problem as killzone, pretty to look at, mediocre everything else. I enjoyed throwing crabs and turtles around in the 1st one more than I did actually playing it.

Which shooters do you enjoy? I´m curious. Other than Fallout and singleplayer only.

To clarify, I don´t like Crysis 2 either, I´m talking solely about the original Crysis. Sorry if my bad attempt at quoting confused you, I fixed it.
Oh, Crysis 1? Yeah that held my attention long enough to finish it. I still don't think of it as anything more than an average shooter with fancy graphics though.

As for what other shooters I enjoy besides Fallout and SP....none. I just don't find online FPS play fun. It's boring at the best of days, most of the time I'm annoyed to the point of wanting to smack people because half the other players boss you around and the other half wouldn't know how to play for fun if you laid it out in plain english.

Oh, and I'm just fine with sandboxes. I've got over five hundred ours of play in Garry's Mod, over three hundred in New Vegas, and likely somewhere in the same area with Fallout 3 but since it wasn't a Steam game there's no tally.

Nah, it had the perfect open-world environment, and the nanosuit powers combined so that u could go over the same area a million times an complete it in a million different ways. That was staggering astuff.

Also the nanosuit powers made u feel incredible, like a predator stalking its prey.

Also the end battle in the Carrier was stunning stuff come to think of it.

Problem with crysis 2 is that it is still an average shooter but this time it forgoes fancy graphics in favor of consoles which we all know have obviously superior graphics to the pc

But it must feel like it looks better on consoles cos its on a big screen tv an ur'e lying back in bed an feeling very comfy.

Also from a distance anything looks good.

it was better than brink tho, lol. I would not have paid $60 for it, the game wasn't really that bad granted everytime i got hit with a flood of water and washed up onshore i thought how cheesy, but other than that the game looks great, runs amazingly solid the entire time at 1920x1080, and using my onza controller it was recognized as a 360 controller without doing anything, showed the button icons instead of the keyboard icons ingame, pretty cool IMO, this game was definitely more of a console game to me but hey it still runs and looks better on pc's.

Yea the first Crysis was crap too. Only thing it had going for it was Graphics. Storyline wasnt good, and gameplay wasn't all that great either. I never did see what all the fuss was about. Crysis this and Crysis that. While I do think crysis isnt that great of a game, I will give credit where credit is due: the graphics in crysis were atleast a few years ahead of its time. In fact crysis still puts a stress on my system. That being said, I will never buy another crysis game so long as they make them. Was extremely dissapointed after reading here on the forums how cool it was. Seriously, all those who said crysis was the greatest game ever, what were you smoking when you played it?

I like how people act like Crysis was a good game.

It looked pretty, that's it. The story was run of the mill trash and the game only took like 2 hours to beat.

Being PC Exclusive like Crysis 1 was would not have made it any better. Graphics do not make a game good. New Vegas looks like arse full stop. Pit it against Crysis and it's like drag racing a lawn tractor against an RB7 race car. Yet, I find myself interested in playing New Vegas almost daily, whereas I haven't touched either Crysis game in ages.
