    Crysis 2 has actually a little chance to beat Black Ops

    CrayHD
      I always laughed at those "BLAK OPS WILL GO DOWN, HOMEFRONT IS COMING OUT !!!". Same went for other games. Today I got my Crysis 2 and after total 10 hours of playing I can say : This game has the potential to compete with Black Ops.
      It's faster paced, better graphics, 60FPS, Perks, Killstreaks, Good Maps, New cool features, I mean what do you want more?

      What do you guys think about it, and wait before you post something because you played the BETA, stop.
      I'm with you, the beta was awful, please don't judge the game because of the bad BETA.

          I was watching some clips on youtube and then Xjaws posted one also... And i honestly for the first time since i have had my PS3 since Dec. Thought about buying another game other then black ops.. It reminded me alot of my halo days with a bunch of the stuff i like from COD.

            Same here bro, I felt like COD is with BF the only decent console FPS, but after having Crysis, I don't think this way anymore.

              I don't have the time for more then one game at the moment. But if i get burnt out on COD.. I think i know what i will be getting.

                Sorry, but i am a true Crysis fan at heart, play crysis (and warhead) at least 10+ hours a week since they were released in 2007 and 2008 (yes, i love that game).

                I have to dis-agree with you there, because Crysis was designed from scratch to be future proof, and it still is the bread and butter benchmark for us PC gamers till this day.

                Crysis 2 however, feels very VERY console ported. Maybe because it is? I had never seen a single game on PC that did not come with graphic options. Known graphic options such as texture quality, environment, AA, AF etc Not just high, very high and extreme (which are the new pc names for gamer, hardcore and advanced in demo).

                Two suite modes in compared to 4 in Crysis 1. Crysis 2 just has armor and stealth (that power is a joke). Strength, armor, speed and stealth in Crysis 1.

                Multi Player: This is such a cod rip off with new names. We had power struggle, which was epic with 64 players and ridiculously huge maps. Now it is 12 players (or 18? not sure) and small-medium maps.

                Console people who are sick, bored or hate BO may like Crysis 2. But for me, as a PC gamer, though we on PC are kind of being left in the dark with BO, id stick to cod BO, because as of now, we have more control on our servers than Crysis 2, and it seriously feels dumbed down.

                It runs Dx9, excuse me? we have had DX11 hardware and software for 2 years (this is the 3rd year) and Crytek WAS known for being pushing PC boundries, i say WAS. Because now, everyone goes for money.

                The only game which looks promising right now is BF3, started and made for the PC THEN ported down to consoles, that is what everyone SHOULD do, since they know the true potential of what a PC can do.

                PS: Crysis 1 maxed out with 8xaa i see 40 FPS, Warhead i see 45-50 (both on 1920x1080) and Crysis 2, extreme 1920x1080 i see 70+ All this one ONE gtx 570...those who spent €2000+ on a hardcore system can only run benchmarks and show off score than FPS at the moment.

                  I feel for you man, I'm on XBOX. But let me tell you one thing, DX11 will be available soon, they already said it.

                  http://www.mycrysis.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=21

                  Take a look at the forum, there is a thread about it.

                  And yes, it's ported, it's already proven. But Black Ops is too. By beating I mean beating Black Ops, not being good for PC gamers, I know, it's sad that so many good PC games just get dumbed down because of the grow of the console community, but that's what developers have to do to have sucess with their game. For XBOX it's the game with the bets graphics, runs perfectly smooth and without lag.
                  For PC, it's another thing, but isn't Black Ops just as shitty on PC?

                    After extensive research, I'll be puying C2 this weekend.  Not b/c I hate BLOPS but it's better to have a few games in the chamber rather than just focusing on just one game specifically.  Not a COD beater but looks great, even if it's ported down to the consoles.  I'll eat from the PC table like a gamer dog any day if this is what we get!

                      Black Ops is ported too btw. But hey, I'm not trying to say BO sucks, just want you guys to pay a little bit more attention to this game, because what I've experienced so far is pretty sick. I'm just waiting for the DX11 patch to get it on my new PC.

                        Crysis 2 is f*cking amazing.

                        By the way, Cod runs at 60FPS too.

                          So does Crysis 2 actually run at 60 fps? I could have sworn it was 30. If it does run at 60, then I'd probably have to get it. I've been saying for a long time that no other shooter will ever really be a competitor to COD unless it runs at 60 fps. People need that quick responsive gameplay, and 30 frames per second just doesn't cut it.

                            I recently finished the Crysis 2 campaign and i have to say i was very satisfied. The campaign was extremely beefy, atleast compared to most COD games and a few others. I must disagree with Grannyoo3's statement about the stealth mode being a joke, it completely changes the game from your regular fps shooter to being a more stealthy game, though it can still be played as more of a regular Fps shooter if desired.
                            I havent done much with multiplayer yet but what i have played is pretty satisfying. Personally i do think Crysis 2 is a COD killer.

                              It sure seems it. It only looks very smooth, no jumpiness or jittering.

                              If I'm right, Halo Reach runs at 30fps, and that still has pretty smooth gameplay.

                              By the way there's an MP demo on PSN and XBL if you want it.

                                  I may have to check it out. If it has a nice fast feel to it, then it could actually be a serious competitor to COD.

                                    Its not that good....I played it at a friends house along with playing the demo, and it has those sluggish controls. All of my friends who bought it on release day were playing black ops with me by the end of the night. If you just want something different then call of duty then crysis it the game for you, but it definitely does not have the same addicting characteristics that cod has.

                                          ive been playing the beta on and off and ive noticed certain things have been abused frequently such as the stealth suit and sniper rifles
                                          but i might be looking into the game im just worried its going to be an even worse camp fest with the stealth camo

                                            Nah...the game is way to different to beat it.
                                            If Battlefield nor Homefront can't beat Call of Duty, then certainly Crysis can't.
                                            There are no games this year that could top the billion dollar game; I mean, all CoD games starting with Modern Warfare are still in the top ten most played games on live. Maybe in four years or so, something can top it.

                                              Won't it be hilarious if a few years from now, all games in the top 10 are COD? It's sad that no other developer has caught on to the basic formula that works for COD- Fast framerate, responsive controls, mostly small to medium size maps, etc. It's like a lot of games will have some of the things, but none have it all like COD. Activision is basically printing money with COD. There is almost no competition. But more and more good games are coming out. A single game won't beat COD, but I bet a combination of good alternatives will cut its user base down.

It's sad that no other developer has caught on to the basic formula that works for COD- Fast framerate, responsive controls, mostly small to medium size maps, etc. It's like a lot of games will have some of the things, but none have it all like COD. Activision is basically printing money with COD. There is almost no competition. But more and more good games are coming out. A single game won't beat COD, but I bet a combination of good alternatives will cut its user base down.

                                                  If Battlefield nor Homefront can't beat Call of Duty, then certainly Crysis can't.

                                                      I know last night, the player count for Black Ops at the time I play went from 300,000 down to 94,000.
                                                      Not sure if it had anything to do with Homefront or Crysis 2 release but it is a significant drop for Black Ops.

                                                      Anyone know the player count for Homefront & Crysis 2 at the moment?

                                                      Back on topic:

                                                      I want to buy Crysis 2 but I don't want to buy a game that will last for 2 - 3 weeks and then we'll all be back playing a COD game.
                                                      I had a similar experience when I purchased Medal of Honor.

                                                      I'm not saying Crysis 2 looks bad. It's looks spectacular and fun to play but how long will that last for?
                                                      Black Ops isn't a perfect game yet I keep going back to it.

                                                      Do you see Crysis 2 lasting for months? Should I pay NZ $97 at my local store for it?

                                                        I don't know. People tend to overrate a game in the first days they play it, so could be the same for me. In 1 month I can tell you my answer.

                                                              I'm not so sure. Things are different right now than from previous years. No good shooters really came out last year (maybe Halo, but I'm on PS3), so MW2 could basically reign at the top. I played MW2 for a solid year. There were times when I got bored and frustrated with it, but there just weren't any alternatives. Now I have both Killzone 3 and Homefront, and I absolutely love both of those games. Crysis is apparently really good, from early reviews. Brink is coming out, and BF3 will be a juggernaut. Black Ops holds no appeal for me anymore, except maybe two games every week or so. Black Ops is a good game, but it's not perfect. I think COD is losing its grip on the masses. MW3 will still be huge and sell enormously, but the days of only having one good shooter are over.
