Crysis 2 6 on 6 multiplayer demo is dropping in on the 25th of Jan, same day as the Bulletstorm demo. Check out the new trailer!
Crysis 2 is looking bad ass. Some of the sweetest multiplayer changes I've seen to date. Sliding into cars and knocking them over for cover, climbing over obstacles to slam down on enemies. Ok so maybe it's been done before, but Crysis 2 makes it look damn good.
After watching the trailer I'm stoked to get my hands on this demo. Looks like a lot of fun. According to a recent press release, the Crysis 2 MP demo will include the "Skyline" map, and two game modes: "Team Instant Action" - AKA Team Deathmatch - and "Crash Site" - AKA Crysis 2's take on territories

Crysis 2 - Multiplayer Demo Briefing

Crysis 2 has me excited about video games again. I never thought I would have said that 6 months ago, when I first saw this game at E3.
CRYSIS 2 Be The Weapon
The game looks amazing, but forget about graphics. Graphics are irrelevant to how much fun you have with the controls. Teeeeeeh guns, the kicking the car, the frickin' aliens man, the jumping around, the sliding, the all out railin'!!!
I'm exciting about this! I see potential for other games to start to open up more with the amount of shit we can actually fuck with in the game world. I want to be able to shoot through closed door, cause damage to everything around me that stays there forever in the game world. Kill anyone I please and move around completely free. I want my MIND BLOWN!Read full story...
A demo reel of some of the effects possible in the new CryEngine 3.
Try not to piss your pants too much, none of this will run on your system unless it's from the future. But it makes me want a new generation of hardware even more now...

After the success of the first Crysis 2 multiplayer demo, the guys over at Crytek have decided to release another one.
1.7 million players downloaded the previous multiplayer demo on Xbox 360, which released last month, in which time Crytek has honed the experience based upon player feedback. The new Crysis 2 multiplayer demo will feature two maps - 'Skyline' and 'Pier 17' - alongside 'Team Instant Action' and 'Crash Site' modes.
In the full version of Crysis 2's multiplayer it will include six gameplay modes - Instant Action, Team Instant Action, Crash Site, Capture the Relay, Extraction and Assault - with a total of 12 maps, set in and around the game's rendition of the Big Apple.
Crysis 2 will be available March 22nd, so be sure to preorder your copy now. Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
This may not look all that cool after watching the new Battlefield trailer, but I did have a good time with this demo the first time around.
You gotta appreciate the idea of a second demo to give us a taste of another map and some improvements made to the game after the first go around. Too bad I'm nowhere near an Xbox or you Jimmys would be getting railed right now!
Crysis 2 | Demo Trailer - PART II
Available now for both PC and Xbox 360, you can team up online to Be The Weapon with the Crysis 2 Multiplayer demo. Including 2 intense game modes with a new map, multiple classes, and an array of weapons -- this is a good taste of things to come when the game launches on 25th March.
Pre-order this bad boy today and raip online with Team Gouki
FnJimmy here to review Crysis 2. I'll walk you through some of the early levels with an in depth look at the gameplay and story of Crysis 2. Thanks for watching and please leave some comments.
FnJimmy's Crysis 2 Golden Video Review
Mixed Emotions and mixed feelings is ALL Crysis 2 has to offer. One moment you're absolutely loving it and then you're saying out loud that you will never play again. Ametuers man. Poor matchmaking, terrible party system and unexplainable glitches.
You would think a publisher like EA would know how to put out a proper multiplayer experience right? They act like they don't give a shit. Crytek can only be responsible for so much. Although, Crytek could have definitely built a better party and matchmaking system. It's bad enough that a lot of these features are a copy of Call of Duty games, but to have the mulitplayer separate parties, boot players at random and straight up fatal error my Xbox is a little ridiculous. Where is the testing? What I want to see is more beta tests, longer beta tests if you're just going to let the community test it once it's released anyway. Where are the patches? The game has been out for a couple of weeks now and still nothing. The screen flips out when you zoom in at the beginning of a game on the map Liberty Island. Why is this? Can anybody explain this? At the beginning of that map, all of my team mates are reminding each other to zoom in and out a couple of times so it doesn't happen while you are in combat.
Crysis 2 Screen Glitch on Liberty Island
So that's a lot of the hate there, the matchmaking. The fact that I've been in the game for 32 hours and have actually only played in matchmaking 15 hours! Wow! That means, I've been in the menus for more than twice as long as I've actually played the game. Regardless of these issues, when you actually get into games and all of your friends are on the same team, the Crysis 2 is a lot of fun.
Crysis 2 has some of the best multiplayer maps in years. No other game comes to mind, when I really think about maps. Maybe Halo 2, but that's way old Jimmy. Liberty Island -the level I mention earlier with the glitch- is probably my favorite multiplayer map in years. The Liberty Island map is very well crafted. The two bases are spread perfectly apart, the medic tent site is great to sneak through, oh and the dead bodies laid out in body bags are hilarious when you are running over them. It got real bad real quick on this map and it is the best map in the game.
Ranking up in Crysis 2 and getting new perks is no different from what you've seen in the Call of Duty series. This is a straight up copy of COD. I'm not sure why they did it like this and I'm not saying it's bad, but I want to know why a completely different company couldn't have come up with something a little more original. Crytek is supposed to be this great game making company. And please don't say this is their first multiplayer game, that's not good enough. You can even prestige in Crysis 2, c'mon.
The last thing I want to do is start all over with my guns. I'm just now getting to level 30 and starting to like how I can build my custom classes. Early on in multiplayer, when you have no guns and no perks, you're getting railed constantly and it is ZERO fun. This was always one of my major issues with COD. You really have to put time in to Crysis 2 if you want to get to the fun stuff in the multiplayer. Look at me, it only took 32 hours of it actually being on for me to start enjoying it.
I wrote everything above a few days ago. I've continued to play the Crysis 2 and my emotions continued to rise and fall. Until finally last night. I'm terrible at the death match and they may be my fault. I'm good during flag matches and enjoy that much more. It's bad enough to lose a few matches in a row or feel like your constantly getting railed in the ass and there is nothing you can do about it. But then when it kicks you out of games or Migrates Host and ends up putting your party into to separate games and you don't even realize until you team starts talking about two different maps. Last night I vowed to never put the Crysis 2 back into my Console.
Flush it! Just like when you Jimmys try to get all Greg Luoganis and swim around the levels where you can't pull your gun out. Crysis 2 is Dead in the Water.

Crysis 2 barely ran on the PC during the E3 tech demo ... not surprising it won't be coming out until next year now.
Crysis 2 official release date is now March 22, 2011. Now some Jimmy ass Websites are saying March 25, but that doesn't make sense.
I'm not really surprised with this news. During the E3 preview we were inside one of those Russian ice bar things, where they only serve vodka. This was to keep the PC that was actually running the game, cool. This didn't work, it still lagged a little during the demo. You can see exactly what we saw in the video below.
This is a video of pretty much, just a recap video of what happened at E3 2010.
You can read BatRastered mind blowing recollection on the demo. Crysis 2 will blow you away!

Check out this new video from Gamescon 2010 of the Crysis 2 multiplayer in action. Hopefully, your computer doesn't implode.
This game is incredible. We all know we need more high quality FPS that barely run on our PC's. Crysis 2, for those of you who can't keep up with the plethora of FPS games coming out constantly. Crysis 2 is game developed by Crytek and published by EA. Back at E3 inside a giant ice box watching the first Crysis 2 demo BatRastered was amazed. Now we get to see what the multiplayer looks like.
Water running off the sides of building, sand and smoke all over the place. Gun fire echoing from every direction and you can see buildings as far away as possible. Jump from building to building down on to some unsuspecting nuab and crush him. Frickin' bullet time man! This Crysis 2 is going to be out of control. Me personally, I'll probably still be playing Reach or Brink.
12 New York City locations.
80 Ranks. Prestige that MW.
60 Almost certainly bad ass Nano suit upgrades.
A decent length campaign with some truly awesome moments is marred by some terrible AI.
Crysis 2 has an interesting campaign, if you can get past the bordom of the first few levels, that is. I spent about 14 hours in the campaign, that's a pretty good length by today's standards. Certainly, you're not getting cheated like Modern Warfare 2's ridiculously short story. The story takes place on a Manhattan island that has been devistated by a plague. Little do they know, that this disaster was casued by aliens.
While I had a great time in the later levels fighting against the "Ceph" aliens, the game starts you off fighting against a private military corporation known as the "Cell". I guess they were in charge of evacuating the city or something, but I was never really sure as to why they wanted to kill me. I mean, I'm trying to save the world! I guess somebody wanted my suit? Whatever. Fighting the Cell is 50% boring and 50% terrible, glitchy AI. If they catch a glimpse of you, they start shooting, but if you're far enough away when this happens, you can just cloak and they often go back to doing what they were doing as if nothing happened. Reall good security force there, Jimmy! The dialouge they spew is equally buggy. Once, I stealth killed a Cell soldier, and one of his buddies heard it and went to investigate. I cloaked and waited for him to show up. Upon standing over his friend's corpse, he quips "must've been a false alarm." Huh?
Once the Ceph start to show up, you're in for some real action. They jump off walls and up onto roof tops to flank you and, of course, take more that a bullet or two to bring down. Unfortunately, I was a good 5 hours into the game before the good stuff happened. In fact, the demo level we saw at E3 2010 was from the second to last level of the game. Really? Really! Still, fighting a walking alien tank while being hounded by many Ceph ground troops is a lot of fun and a good challenge. Interestingly, after wiping out a large chunk of the Ceph offensive, I'm back fighting Cell again, trying to rescue someone from them and they're hell-bent on killing me again... as if I didn't just save all their asses... Yeah, the story is a little convoluted.
The graphics and sound of Crysis 2 are top-notch. I played on an XBOX 360 (in HD, but not 3D) and thought the game looked spectacular. Even better considering I didn't have to install anything to get up and running. Just pop in the disk and go. The draw distance in Crysis 2 is really incredible, which allows the sniper rifle to be very useful in many situations. The orchestral musical score, while not quite Halo standards for me, was quite good and added to the overall experience. The suit itself talks to you, telling you when you cloak or armor are turned on. This is ok at first, but it gets tiresome since those modes consume energy, you can't just leave them on which means you end up hearing that a lot. The controls are typical for a console FPS, with the addition of the shoulder buttons controlling your armor and cloak abilities and never got in the way of the action, although sometimes when close to an object I couldn't jump the way I wanted to. For some reason, the game continues to tell you how to crawl under things even towards the end of the game, I found no way to turn the hints off.
I didn't play much of the multi-player, though what I did see felt a lot like CoD style, which I hate. See goukijones' MP review later. The campaign itself has no real reason to go back and do it again. In fact, it feels a bit like Halo 2, giving you that "hey we're working on part 3" moment at the end.
- An FPS with a campaign that actually lasts more than one play session.
- Interesting fights with the alien "Ceph".
- The nano-suit is great and makes you feel like a badass.
- Upgrading the suit and swapping weapon parts (scopes, silencers, etc) doesn't pause the game or take you out of the environment at all.
- Most of the story is told in the game engine without taking you out of first-person.
- Controls are spot-on. Shooting feels right.
- Looks great. Sounds great.
- Multi-player feels like CoD. You have to rank up to get better guns, which is hard when people you play against already have them.
- Fights against human "Cell" group are boring, plagued by terrible AI and audio bugs, and just don't make sense.
- Enemy path finding is often broken, leaving bad guys stuck between objects or facing a wall.
- Too much hand-holding by the game. Press B to crouch is useful in level one, just plain annoying in level 18.
- The suit won't shut up. I hope you like hearing "cloak engaged", or "maximum armor", or "nano vision enabled", because you'll hear it a lot.
- No replay value to the campaign.
If you're into the CoD style multiplayer, you might enjoy the overall experience of this game more than I did.
Overall: Rent it
