Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why all the crysis 2 hype?

Simple, because the multiplayer demo was an old build, made by a different dev team, and the SP is the best looking game graphically for consoles.

Because the game looks incredible, and looks like a damn fun FPS.

It's not the best looking game graphically for consoles.

Watch the video. There is no doubt its the best looking. Please tell me a game that looks better.

Lmao, good one.

Uncharted 2 and Killzone 3 destroy it ( and are in real 720p ). ;)

That will be said all the way up to release day. If the industry agrees (as it overwhelmingly did for Killzone 3 - as in more than 2 -5 reviews), I'm willing to give Crysis 2 that credit.

For now, that SP footage does look incredible, but not the best that I've seen from either console.

Well,you probably know what I'm going to say and I'm not going to get into a debate about it.

It gets pretty damn close and denying that it's not at least top tier is being silly. I'm not even that into it and I can admit that it looks really good.

Also, as I mentioned in my previous post, the hype has been abnormally low for such a high profile game. The pre-orders aren't even showing up in the top 20 in a country that loves shooters, the majority of the forum talk has been pretty negative and it's only been popping up in the last few days before it's release, similar to what happens to most titles. The hype has been considerably lower than it was for games like Dead Space 2, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Homefront, Dragon Age 2 and Killzone 3.



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.

Yeah Killzone 3's lack of ragdoll physics, 2D flames, and low res explosions are much more impressive :/

In Killzone 3's case, it's due to exclusive status. Multiplats rarely top that type of hype.

As for the other titles, I agree, it has been pretty low by comparison. It may not outsell Homefront in the end because this may just have been an awkward period to launch (and the negative internet buzz might make people curious as to what all the fuss is over, but may also be just what turns people off).

I was surely going to get it on the 360 (but newer reports suggest neither console has any massive visual advantge). Now I'm confused.
