My thoughts on the Crysis 2 Demo

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well I played a couple hours worth of matches with the game.
First thing, I have to say it looks pretty decent (for an xbox game), but, I don't know if its just how the mechanics of the game are, but it doesn't feel too smooth (pretty jerky and it seems like the frame count is low). It took me a while to to get used to it but I finally did. Also the kills are sort of delayed, like if I melee someone, they will keep moving for about 2 seconds then just suddenly drop dead. Also if I'm shooting at someone and they turn a corner, again, 2 seconds later they'll die. Something else, it looks like the characters movements aren't to realistic. They are very jerky compared to how the original looked.
Other than that, for gameplay I enjoyed playing a few matches despite the things I mentioned above. At first my K/D would be even and I'd have a couple of suicides (damn hole in the middle of the map) but I ended up sticking with a 19-20 kills to around 4 deaths ratio. Oh and something I should mention here, for some reason I was not able to get any kill streaks, I would get 6-7 kills in a row and no UAV/radar would pop up as an option and neither would that "Hammer of Dawn" thing either. I played on my roomates xbox and they would show up instantly, but not on mine. I tried holding y to activate the killstreaks when I got enough kills but nothing would happen.

So yea, while its entertaining I have to say that they really need to work on the game before they actually release it. I think they should have called this more of a beta rather then a demo.

I should mention that it feels like a straight hybrid of halo and call of duty....

Killstreaks eh, who'd have thought someone would invent a method of patting campers on the back?

I should mention something about that too, a **** ton of people just sit in corners with stealth mode or something and run up and melee you. Flippin annoying.

The issue with killstreaks is that you have to collect the person's dogtags not simply kill them.

It's a console-friendly multiplayer based FPS. I think if they hit somewhere between CoD and Halo they're in the money.

Yea I found that out after a little search, but even when I did still got the same issue, its weird but I don't really mind. I might just try reinstalling or something if I get time. But thanks for the heads up.

im sure this is a pretty descent game but come on . if u want a FPS then play black ops ,bad company or halo, the others are a waste of time

I enjoyed the demo, but there was a lot of lag between the kills for me.
The killsteaks kind of sucked aswell to be honest.
