Whatever, it was as stale as the rest of the Space Marine shooters we've been playing these last years.

If that is the best "next gen" gaming that I'm supposed to buy a new graphics card for I think I'll just stick to laughing at people who do.

Space Marine shooter? You mean Military shooter. Especially the annualised ones (Battlefield, MoH, CoD), those are the ones who are poison to the FPS genre. Yes, including RAGE from our "beloved" Doom and Quake creators. It's all garbage.

Only worthwhile FPS creators out there these days are Valve, Crytek, and Irrational.

Crysis was a generic mess, Crysis 2 was not.

Crysis was a sandbox generic mess, Crysis 2 was a linear arcade shooter....and not.

Like I owe you an answer. Go play it yourself, if possible, past the tutorial area? Then come back and apologize how right I was.

What's an arcade shooter? Aren't these things extinct a long time ago, except in Japan?

Are you talking about sidescroller shooter? Maybe you should first learn to differentiate between the subgenres before using wrong terminology. Shooter is not just shooter.

I didn't played it (because I don't want to spend money on a game that might be ****ty FPS) and you don't want to tell my why it is better than any other FPS. Guess I will never find out then.

What's there to tell? Some experiences aren't to be told. You have to play it. Besides, it's very cheap at this point.

What I liked on the top of my head? Very thorough setting and believable level design, above average AI, very good punch and physicality to the combat, fantastic soundtrack, very diverse places to visit, overall very well paced. The whole thing just feels "right".

Yeah sorry I didn't summon some voodoo numbers out of my hat, this has to suffice for starters.

One slight differential, I thought Crysis was actually quite fun.

i didn't really like crysis, so i never bothered with the sequel.


dragons dogma demo debut dated and looks delightful
http://xbox360.ign.c.../1223067p1.html

other than some animations looking a bit stiffer than others (which is pretty forgivable given the sheer volume of animations that appear to be in the game from these videos) this game LOOKS fantastic. I just hope it has solid rpg mechanics (has there been any information given out about the mechanics of the game?) and a fun to explore world

seems like all the preview information is just showing a lot of combat and monster variety (which are great, i just want info on the other parts of the game)

Crysis never really appealed to me, the whole franchise seemed to rely on the `ground breaking ´graphics.

Dragon's Dogma does look nice, unfortunately not for PC though. :(

Looking forward to Dragon's Dogma myself; I'm cautiously optimistic about it.

Dragon's Dogma has the ability to set yourself on fire, then jump on the enemy's back. There's no way for me to not be excited.

Crysis, apart from the graphics, had costumizable weapons (new thing at the time), good AI (for the humans, though Warhead fixed it for the aliens), a sandbox map instead of corridors, the nanosuit to spice things up (voiced by Norio Wakamoto in the jap version to boot!) and the controls/shooting were quite good.

crysis just wasn't that fun to play. it had lots of good bits, but when put together you ended up with a somewhat bland paste instead of a zesty stew

Crysis series is not "another ****ty" FPS.


We've got a name for it in Russia - a Y.O.B.A. game, meaning "youth oriented, bydlo approved". Bydlo is a Russian analogue for British chav, well maybe a little broader, but you get the meaning. Crysis is usually given as the most shining example of a YOBA game - a soulless title for a casual half-retarded console player, disguised and sold as a "game". I'm only saying this because you think crysis is something else entirely, while it's only 100% yoba.

how the hell was crysis a youth oriented game? it was unplayable on anything but a very high end pc when it was released... did a lot of russian youths have incredibly expensive computers in 2007?
