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.
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...
CryEngine 3 GDC 11: Exclusive Tech Showcase HD
Check out my impressions of EA's keynote speech inside.
So Microsoft's keynote was pretty disappointing; we all know it's true. Unless you care about watching Kinect, there was very little that was interesting. So then came EA's keynote. Was it better than Microsoft? For the most part, yes.
EA opened up with a new remake of Hot Pursuit. I have to say it: I wasn't that much impressed by the demo. It's from Criterion, and it certainly looked like it; the game really did appear to have a Burnout feel to it. The graphics do look impressive, but I just can't get over the fact that the game looks more like a Burnout game than a Need for Speed game. EA boasted that the game was going back to the Need for Speed roots, but I just didn't see it in the demo.
Read full story...
What the hell happened here? That is not my gamertag. How is this even possible. Then the game freaks out and kicks everyone. Vintage Crysis 2.
Don't be a Jimmy, this game is Nubfarm. Although Crysis 2 is waaaay better than Brink.

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!

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!

Crysis 2 looks amazing... on the PC anyway.
We got to see a demo of Crysis 2 in the EA booth at this year's E3.
I'll tell you what, it looked VERY pretty. You've never seen a game that looked this good. Unfortunately this was running on a PC. I'm not sure of the specs they had, but given the 80 inch plasma in front of the room, and the fact that they wanted to show off this game, I'll assume it's better equipped than mine. Even given that, there were a few points in the demo where the frame rate dropped noticeably. I worry about how this game will turn out on the PS3 and XBOX 360.
It looked to me as the whole city was rendered in real time with lots of pieces, as a whole building comes down and it's not a cinematic cut scene. If you could buy two XBOXes with the money you spent on your video card, you need this game to justify your purchase. Otherwise, I'd wait and see how the console versions turn out.
It also looked to me as if the jimmy running this demo was in god mode, because he was getting pwnd but not dying. Hmmm... conspiracy!

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.
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

FnJimmy's Crysis 2 Golden Video Review
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.
