Anyway, I thought Crysis 2 looked better than Crysis and it was a far better game than that glorified benchmark with its vapid jungle-scape, stupid AI, bland online component, and its illusion of choice. Call of Duty 4 launched around the same time and not only did it sell more than Crysis, but more people were playing it online and for longer.
I think exactly the opposite , while original Crysis had amazing graphics way ahead of it's time , great story , multi player with big maps and vehicles , huge beautifully looking areas and signature Crytek's sandbox gameplay , for me Crysis 2 was a step back in nearly all aspects.
Initial fiasco of a release , before mentioned "Press Start" , horrible low quality console textures, small levels and compromised gameplay due to multi platform nature of the game , DX11 duct taped a month after and finally blatant copy/paste CoD in nanosuit multi player full of cheaters.
As for the last bit , i still play Crysis Wars while I'm not even thinking about coming back to that sad attempt on copying CoD which was Crysis 2 MP.
OT: Crytek sure talks big and as i would easily believe that before , after Crysis 2 i will just wait and see , the fact that it's a multi platform again makes me really suspicious.
They can't make it look any better on consoles because they simply can't handle that and making it really take advantage of current high end PC's would require developing two different versions of the game which i highly doubt will happen.
So yeah Crytek come back when you have some actual PC footage not some blurry Xbox trier and we'll talk business.
As i said many times before I am (was) a great Crytek fan and Far Cry and Crysis are one fo my favorite games but if the're going to serve us another consolized Crysis with CoD style multi player they can go console only and not even bother filling me with false hope.
