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

I just played uncharted 2 nepal, I have to say Uncharted 2 looks better. Much much better and I can easily say there are some portions of Castlevania that look better too.


Congratulations on basing your firsthand experience of a game and comparing it to YouTube videos.

Just wow. Possibly and probably the best looking game on consoles.

did'nt look wow to me. Looks just like any other FPS. The third video was the only one that looked half way impressive,but to call it the best looking game on consoles is just simply not true.

You're just saying that cos u prefer the PS3.

Post a video from a shooter that looks better then and put it side by side to one of my videos.

How do you know what I prefer. I have all 3 systems bye the way. It's fine if your hyped and excited about it,but I simply don't get it. What looks good to one person,does'nt look good to another.

Stop dodging.

Put your KZ3 video there (or whichever shooter you think is mindblowing) beside one of those Crysis 2 videos above and we'll compare.

Needless to post GoW III Titan fights, that would be unfair. ^^

Bold: indeed. I admit, I agree. But do you realize that you're one of very few PS3 fans who even admit Crysis looks impressive? Most Sony fans are "meh", and that's just sad to see.

But CGI, you don't have to be afraid of saying that Crysis 2 looks better than any X360 exclusive.

KZ2&3 and Uncharted 2 is debatable, I'll happily give that, but Crysis 2 graphics definitely slays Gears 2.

I'm far from afraid to say what I think (I thought by now, I would have proven that ). Gears of War 2 is still the most impressive game I've seen on the 360 (mind you, like much of the rest of the site, I've yet to play the full game of Crysis 2). Crysis 2 (again, form what I've seen) has some areas that are truly impressive (textures, draw distance, and lighting come to mind). But it lacks what other titles in the genre have (huge set pieces, amount of things taking place on screen, in your face character models).

I'm only judging footage though, so after an extensive good week of playtime, I'll come back and make a much better judgment of the game.

Yes,when the game comes out someone should make a crysis 2 impressions thread. Let's all agree on that.

Indeed. Will be nice to hear what people think.

What are you doing then? Aren't you basing the comparisons on youtube videos as well?

Do you have the game? Have you played both of them together to compare them?

Crysis 2 looks better than all those 3 vids.

The KZ3 vid u chose is poor because it shows a huge pre-animated monster á la God of War. I bet there are better ones.

There are levels of Uncharted 2 that look better than those two vids.

Have you even watched those Crysis 2 videos? They're insane!

Honestly the only video you posted that looks just as good as the Crysis videos posted was the KZ3 one...why would you pick the worst videos ever of Uncharted 2?

Needless to say from what I've seen in the videos Crysis 2 is comparable to KZ3.

But like I have said in other threads I will save my final judgement for when I actually play Crysis 2.

I don't know why you think huge set pieces are amazing, they are not.  If anything, the size is arbitrary and the textures needed don't have to be as high detail as closer models.  Serious Sam 1 had huge bosses too and threw lots of things at you at the same time.

From looking at those videos, Killzone reminds me of Quake 4 with some postprocessing effects.  Uncharted 2 had some good scenes, but aside from a decent lighting model it looks pretty standard.  Crysis 2 looked pretty standard except for that 3rd video where it was showing lighting effects underwater, that was classic Crysis and it was impressive to see running on consoles.

Overall, all of those engines looked about the same in terms of texture detail as expected since both consoles have roughly the same amount of video RAM.  All the games had compromises, but usually in places where the player won't notice until they are looking for those things.  It looks like all the console games still target a rather unimpressive 30FPS.  I'll take 60 FPS over visuals anyday.

The graphical differences between the 360 and PS3 isn't anything to write home about, and I think most of the public agrees.
