I thought that Crysis 2 would not sell much because of all the hate and flaming on the forums. I am glad not many people listened to the haters. Good job Crytek. You made an excellent game for both PC gamers and console users. I am pleased.
nice, nice, good job Crytek indeed!

I think Crytek made a wise decision implementing the choices they did. If it was a PC exclusive they would not have made half the money they have already raked in. PC gamers would still find an excuse to flame it.
Problem is, in another thread he admitted that his built his rig specifically for Crysis and GTAIV so you can see why he is upset

Crytek promised us that this game would be as good or better than Crysis 1. It was supposed to be designed for PC's in mind, consoles second. It may be a great game. But the fact is, Crytek flat out LIED to PC gamers...and THAT is why we're mad about it.

Crysis 2 is nowhere NEAR as fun as Crysis 1 was. It's nowhere near as open of a game (sandbox if you will). And the graphics are FAR BELOW Crysis standards.
and you know this how? So, you bought the game after all?

Just stating the obvious
I disagree, it was definitely a bad idea to give you limited options for settings and to leave a couple of words in there(start, aim assist, tv, brightness, etc....) but the game is not a console port by a long shot. It was developed on PC with the console mindset, much different than developing a game on the console and porting it over. I'm not too sure why all the bugs though(didn't experience any myself, going off other's experiences).
Also, who cares about DX version used? So, what if DX9 is about 7 years old now(released in 2004)? The game looks amazing for DX9, better than majority of games out there and you with Vsync, I'm getting a constant 60fps for a smooth experience. Also, how many games are out there right now that make full use of DX11?

If I bought games strictly on popularity, i'd be playing every Blizzard title. Not a fan of WoW, but some people are.

I'm sorry if you think Crytek lied to you. Ofcourse they're going to tell you it's better than Crysis 1. If it wasn't, you wouldn't buy it. That's the marketing machine, make the sequel better than the first. As games become better, consumers start demanding more. We won't settle for less. Can't make a better Crysis 1.
I don't buy games on hype, I was a fan from the first game. Just like I don't boycott a game because of anti-hype. I have a mind of my own.

There were a lot of threads floating around bashing Crysis 2, so I just thought I would make one to praise the game and congratulate the developers on a good job well done. They don't need to listen to the idiots flaming their product, it is doing well and the gaming community backs it.

He probably tried out an 'extended demo'. The same people that complain the PC platform is neglected are the same people that don't support developers. He doesn't deserve a better game than he receives.

I loved Crysis and Warhead, awesome games, and I can nowhere near max them. And yet, I really don't care to play Crysis 2. Say what you want about it being super-duper action packed funtime!, doesn't matter, from all the footage I've seen, and gameplay videos, it looks incredibly linear, way too much like CoD/Halo, and it just doesn't look fun in my opinion. I played the demo, hated it, but not for any graphical reasons. I hated the mp, I hated the lack of settings, and I hated the whole 'console' feel of it.

Call me a hater if you want, or a PC elitist (Which would be hilarious since I only have a laptop.) But guess what, I've got my laptop, with well over 200 pc games all bought and paid for, a 360 with 67 games all bought and paid for, and a DS with about a dozen games, all bought and paid for.

I am not a PC elitist
I am not a console fanboy
I am not a pirate
I loved Crysis and Warhead
I have no interest in Crysis 2, it looks like nothing but a let down.

And that is JUST my Steam list, that doesn't include EA Digital Versions, GFWL games, GOG.com games, or my boxed games. I support developers, but not when they pull crap like this. Hell I liked Bad Company 2 enough that I bought it 3 times! 360, Disc copy, Steam copy.

Calm down, if you don't want to play the game nobody is going to force you...Hater.

thank goodness for them walk through vids on Youtube, watched the whole thing and the storyline and game-play was boring.

However, I do like the storyline and gameplay in Crysis 2. I hope that DX11 patch will make it a bit better.

Oh I know full well I'll end up buying it. I do it all the time with games I'll never end up playing, hence why my Steam list is damn near 200 games long. I can't pass up sales. Once Crysis 2 hits the $15 or less bin on Steam, I'll snag it, and still probably never touch it lol.

It will happen with Dragon Age 2 as well. I loved the first one and the expansion, hated the demo for 2. So once it hit's bargain bin, I'll snag it. Steam sales make me buy games I have no interest in all the time, I bought like 5 of the indie packs during the christmas sale since they were 5 bucks, I've put maybe 5 minutes tops into each one.
