playing this game.....and all i can say, compared to the original, this one is a MAJOR disappointment.....the AI is buggy...the soldiers get stuck behind obstacles, keep walking in the same place and arent half as smart as the AI in the original......the choppers are super easy to take down and unlike the super menace the choppers were in the original.....its quite easy even on the hard setting and maximum speed is no longer an ability u can activate.....the suit now only has 2 powers......cloak and maximum armor.....speed is there but u just have to press the LS to activate it.....i guess Crytek was so busy making this game look pretty and sound super cool that they totally forgot about gameplay.....

i will be suprised if this game gets a score higher than 8.0 or 8.5 MAX

Which version did you play or are you just trolling TC? You copied and pasted this topic on PC and 360 forums.

I know this is just bs talk because the AI in Crysis was terrible. They improved on the AI in Crysis 2 ive seen videos and it looks much better. It sounds to me your talking from the BETA.

Too bad the game has been getting 9/10 from reviewers so far.

Also, I believe you are making your opinion based off of the leaked beta. Because I had AI problems like you mention in the beta as well, but reviewers have stated that the AI constantly challenges you and is very good.

If you play the game on the hardest difficulty it is very difficuly, I found myself dying several times on the second hardest difficulty.

You say there is only 2 suit powers when there is really 4. Strength and speed activate differently rather than turning the suit mode on. Strength can be used by holding spacebar when you jump or holding mouse 1 when holding an object, speed can be used by pressing shift or by pressing C while sprinting to slide.

Play the full game before you hate. Id call you the T word, but i keep getting modded for it. Stop T'ing.

...... I could understand if you believed the 360 and _PS3_ version would be equivalent but don't compare the 360 version to the PC by assuming it'd be the same. ~30 vs. 60+ f/s is a big difference during gameplay.

First of all I this sounds like a troll to me. Second of all How could 8.5 be a major dissapointment? Third, If you just played the 360 version , you shouldn't post in the PC forum.

BTW I really liked the Demo for PC.

Well if you think about it the choppers in the las game were annoying. Either fire all the rockets or get chased by them forever. Well you could shoot some idividual parts but it took forever.

Jeez, cut him some slack, check out most games, the pc and x360 version are hardly that diffirent. After all we seen i doubt crysis 2 will be diffirent. Crytek did talk about better ai on pc, but they also "talked" about other things ;)....sooo, if the game is like that on a console, i dont expect a big improvement on the pc considering all the focus they put on the console version.

The choppers were extremely easy in Crysis original. I don't see the difference there.. It's not cool to walk into the PC forum and post your impression from playing a a console version, or mind you, even beta leak. Can't trust you there.

Whats dissapointing is how everyone is so adamantly against Crsis 2 without having seen reviews, played the game, or at least watched videos of the release version before making any judgement. For what reason do people here make it a point to flame every crysis 2 topic trying to ruin what other would find a fun game? people here hold the mentality that waht they think should apply to everyone else, go troll some other board

Yeah I agree 100%. Love these forums and alot of the people posting but this has bothered me to.

Never seen a website were people are so judgemental of things before they even come out or they have experienced it first hand.

I am worried about the game myself, but to completely trash the game when you have not played it? Very silly imo.

When I was younger I use to do the same thing, glad I grew up and relized that you should not judge a book by its cover.

If you hate the game thats perfectly fine, but at least give the game a chance.....

Many games I thought would be terrible turned out good and many games I thought would be great turned out horrible, another reason why I try games before trashing or praising them.

I dont really know the reason why people do this bud, but my guess is that it makes them feel godo about themselves so they can say " I TOLD YOU SO!!!".

I remember when ARMA2 came out certain members of this site were like "THIS GAME SUCKS! NEW OPERATION FLASHPOINT IS WAY BETTER! EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NOT PLAYED IT YET", then 3-4 months later when they finally tried it they were like "THIS IS ACTUALLY GOOD! I WAS WRONG!". Like I said before, I dont mind if someone hates a game that I like, as long as they have tried the game.

It's not hard to figure out that you're going to be disappointed by a game based on information given pre-release. Unless you're unable to create informed predictions based on a beta leak, gameplay videos, a demo, and related news.

Exactly, once a game is out and people have played it I enjoy reading impressions from those who like it and those who hate it, but it always makes me laugh when I see people completely trash a game before its out.

Sure alot of the things Crytek has done with this game I dont like the idea of, but you know what? I have been wrong many many many times before when it coems to things like this so Ill make up my mind how the game is when I am playing it or after I am done.

I couldn't agree more. I could never understand the reasoning/intentions behind bashing a game before it's out. I think, no matter what, I'm going to enjoy Crysis 2 despite anything. I've learned who to listen to and trust on GS, so some people's comments go in one ear and right out the other. And also, I've been listening to the Crysis 2 OST on youtube. Great soundtrack.

Yes, I can't think of one instance I've ever been surprised by a game that I thought was going to be bad before hand. This is because I've been gaming most of my life and I know what I like in a game. It's pretty easy to tell if you might like a game or not with less than a demo, and we've been given more than that.

For all I know, you might be indifferent to the likely possibility of having no advanced graphical settings and an encrypted user configuration file. You might not be let down that the Crysis 2 doesn't attempt to push the envelope in graphics technology and shooting gameplay. You probably don't mind the singleplayer being focused around the same gameplay elements that made Call of Duty a success (as if we don't have enough games trying to mimic Hollywood). To me, all these things are disappointing. I'm sure there is much more I'm going to be disappointed by in this game, but a few positive experiences as well. All I know is that I know I wouldn't be disappointed if I spent that money on Shogun 2. :( We're not claiming that the game is guaranteed to suck - it's just annoying how Crytek's words haven't been matching what they're delivering.

Fair enough. I'll tell you what. Once I have my hands on the game some time this week (hopefully tomorrow :P ), I'll let my voice be known if Crysis 2 truly sucks or it's great. :) I'm fully aware of the graphical settings limitation, encrypted ini file. Those don't sit well with me at the moment. Is the encrypted ini file confirmed?

It's unbelivable how many people are telling everyone "Try it, try it" Games aren't free, and i can't afford to buy every game just to try it... I have no doubt that it will be a great game, however Crytek completely screwed over PC gamers.. I'm not really going to support it, never. I would rather buy another copy of Shogun II.

Yea, I also wouldn't really want to buy Crysis 2 "just to try it". At least there's one user review up so far, let's see how many would agree or disagree.

But I admit, I liked the 'Story Trailer', it made me consider about it's single-player. If it's got a good length to it, then I'll probably consider it but if it's going to be 5 hours like most FPS games, piss off.
