Been wondering about this game...
 
Edit:   Wow...I never thought I would get that quest done...was total random luck.   And for the record, I really have been wondering about this game...been waiting to see a quick look of it. :)

Lol at Sweep making it into another Quick Look.

Posted by Metal_Mills

No DX11 at launch and no graphical settings means I'll probably buy it later on for cheap.

@Slaker117: That is filled with so much win.

Vinny, what are you doing up so late? It's totally my business, you know.

Watching this on an Android phone is an injustice to this video. Had to hop back on... the computer train for this.

Crytek has always acted like a bitch towards the PC. Even though Crysis and Warhead sold multimillions and gave them the wealth to start up 5 divisions across the world they still cried at how piracy was killing the company.

He is pretty good at working both of those at the same time.

Welp, I can't stand the suit voice. No option to turn it off or make it less offensive? No sale. Maybe a strange thing to make or break, but I find it really annoying. 
 
Also the graphical option stuff is disgusting, I mean, they went from having incredibly customizable graphics (with DX10) in the first one to not customizable at all and only DX9 in this one. Most other modern PC games, even console ports, offer better graphics options and almost always DX10 and increasingly DX11.

It's weird to watch a quicklook before I beat the game, but so far, the game is awesome for the most part.
Posted by chickdigger802

kinda disappointed that the tutorial popups and subtitles aren't integrated as part of the display.

How is the suit voice offensive? This has me curious o_O

Silencer and clip, right off the bat. Ugh. Suppressor and magazine, guys. Suppressor and magazine. 
Posted by Swarfigo

I hate when they lock you out of game modes based on your rank. Weapons and abilities fine, but don't limit my game modes because I just got the game.

Crysis 1 you could change it to a female voice if I remember correctly.  Wonder if you still can.
Posted by Slaker117
@chaosnovaxz:  I think he means offensive as annoying, not racist or anything like that.

360 version looks okay... for a 360 game.

Posted by MariachiMacabre
@Riboflavin: That seems like an extremely dumb thing to base a video game purchase on. If such trivial things are more important than gameplay to you, you're potentially going to miss many a great game.
Edited by 2HeadedNinja

Those graphical options are a joke.  
 
[edit:] regarding a comment Jeff made: Crysis 1 always gave you a pretty clear idea on where you had to go ... the only thing that was up to you was how to get there and how to handle the situation when you got there.

The PC nerd inside me couldn't help but smile at that one.

This game's gorgeous visuals aren't up to my obnoxious standards. I hope Crytek gets shut down and EA goes out of business for this travesty.

Posted by chickdigger802

Yea those suit upgrades seem pretty hefty. I remember in crysis 1 your Maximum armor made you take like 1  or 2 more hits. And I swear the north koreans had about the same hp as you on default. 
 
These aliens seem pretty wussy imo. 
 
Any option for the female voice in crysis 1? Liked that voice way better.

First Shogun2, now Crysis2 - false advertisement. Screwing PC gamers, again and again. I pre-ordered after playing the leak and now this! Bragging so much about their tech, like Cevat never fails to stuff it to the video game journos (remember the NY press event?) and then NOT being able to walk the walk? How are they going to convince game developers and publishers to buy their new Crytek Engine, if they even fail to show it in their own game?!
 
It is even more embarrassing if the PS3 version lacks the fidelity too. This is not how you 'sell' your engine successfully - especially when DICE's Frostbyte 2 is around the corner?
 
Instead of making sure that the development teams FINISH the game, EA/Crytek was apparently too busy burning money for those global Crysis Events - making sure PR/Marketing budgets in the 10s of millions are spent instead optimizing the effing GAME! I can kiss my recently created list good bye, if this keeps going on like this :( *#@"!

  • The game does looks good on PC in DX9, the Shader Model, visual effects and art style is fine. Also, what you don't see in the QL, since Jeff was eager to quickly run through the levels to show us more stuff - you can grab the blue light with your hand, or kick down the other light sources, showing some dynamic shadow effects, just like Far Cry did. You can kick cars!! You can grab things (barrels!) and throw them at the enemies, etc etc - there is way more variety to the gameplay than shown in this QL.

  •  Sadly, the AI in this retail version is as weak as it was in the leaked build. That is a true bummer, since the game isn't hard enough. All you guys who enjoyed Crysis 1 (like me) will not like that at all.

  • ...and yes. This in-game voice-acting Gen. Hargrave sounds like your retired grandfather from 1909. 

  • Story is stupid, but gameplay is good. Gameplay counts?!
 
What surprised me, is that Jeff chose to go 'stealth'. I thought, he said, he doesn't like stealth game missions in shooters? What happened? haha :)
 
When the game comes out in Europe - this Friday - the North American players will already have an advantage - probably leveled up and unlocked everything. I hate those kind of releases.

True dat. They sold at least 4 million retail copies of Crysis 1 on PC, probably double that number if you include digital sales. That's close to CoD level of success and they still complain about piracy. They made their money back on the first million.

For dudes in super magic alien armor, they sure seem to die quickly in multiplayer.

Posted by VisariLoyalist

I'm very dissapointed in the amount of flat/crap texture work possibly because of the hardware but still

Posted by thebigJ_A

Jeff said it's "different enough" from CoD. From the perspective of someone who finds CoD mp boring, and thus hasn't played it all that much (a decent amount of MW, but only a few hours of MW2 and blops), I didn't notice very much that was all that different. I mean, sure you can cloak, and you earn some upgrades in a slightly different way, but other than that it seemed bog standard Call of Duty multiplayer. And neither of those are particularly interesting.
 
Did my inexperienced eyes miss something of importance?

I am told you can't change it to a female voice, but I don't know for sure. And yea, but offensive I just meant annoying or grating. 
 
@MariachiMacabre: I already have plenty of misgivings about this game, nothing about it looks particularly compelling, and the annoying voice looks, well, annoying. I'm going to have to hear that a lot when playing. Odds are I will end up playing it eventually, but not till its like $30 on steam. I enjoyed the first one and was looking forward to this, but the demo and recent coverage and really turned me off the game, and I have plenty of other great games to play (Dead Space 2, AssBro since it just came out on PC, STALKER: Call of Pripyat with the complete mod pack, and soon probably Deux Ex and certainly The Witcher 2 and Portal 2).  I don't really have time for all that anyway though, what with classes, so all that combined makes me not interested in Crysis 2 right now. 
 
But it's really the suit voice that does it. So bad.
Edited by ArchScabby

I kind of don't like these dual quicklooks... maybe because my brain is dumb, or I just don't like watching the same thing over again.

Posted by MachoFantastico
@ArchScabby: Not every game needs them I agree, but Crysis 2 does require a comparison considering it's graphical importance in the previous game.
