I hope they fixed the tearing in the final version, cuz' I'm gonna fuckin' buy this game! I just love the setting ...

Not really much of an ice "forest", but whatever lol.
Quite liked the demo, will definitely give the game at least a rental (might buy it if it becomes dangerously addictive like most people are anticipating?)

SK may as well just get it over with and bring out a video that shows the game from start to finish.

Nice looking trailer but after trying the demo and seeing how terrible terrible this game looks irl i can't say i'm too impressed, unless they give this game a major over haul it will be a complete flop.

Since when is a game being good based just on the graphics? -_-
Commented on 2008-08-08 15:28:47
its already a definite buy for me just for the coop alone, who the hell bases a games awesomeness solely on graphics? wtf... the game plays awesome looks expansive has an awesome setting and full coop as i siad 100% a buy for me

as for the demo the only thing that was kinda sad was how week the friendly soldiers were their guns suck they barely do anything to the enemys i mean they fight ok, but their weapons seem to do barely any damage but i get the point their trying to force you to do the real damage and leg work...

speaking of leg work, the berserker is bad a$$!, my buddy that im gonna coop with is a diehard commando fan

JUST LET IT GO SILICON KNIGHTS.

Jeeeeeeez.

The people who still want to get it are gonna get it. The people who thought the demo was a crock of shit won't.

Crysis ? (according to the press and the rest of the gamers, it seems) :P

Definete buy for me too, love the way they mixed nordic mythology with cybernetic future stuff. And i love these vids, because they show off the ART behind the game, not the "graphics".

I really liked the demo. I had to be pulled off it, otherwise I would've gone hungry!

It's definitely more about art than execution; the begining of the demo, where you are being transported on a floating platform is just breathtaking.

Crysis? That's basically a tech demo - most people will agree the game itself is actually very poor in execution.

I'm not one for this game though. I keep looking at the media for it hoping to see something I like, but I don't.

CO-OP was nerfed from 4 players to 2 players to 2 players with no story at all.

I wouldn't classify this game to have CO-OP anymore due this fact, sure you can play 2 player but thats pretty much it as all you have left is the combat.

First I hated the game, then at some point I started to appreciate it and not too long ago I was really looking forward to this game.

Then, I played the demo and heard that a playthrough is only 15 hours long and now I hate the game again.

Oh well.

So... there isn't a way to play the game to know the story?!
Hell, how stupied from them not to include a single-player with story, eh?

What were they thinkin'?!! People play Co-oP to be rewarded with the Cutscenes... playing with others online its just a way to acheive an end... see a Story.

No sarcasm. i'm baffled.

Personal attack? Really starfox.... really?

I see what you're saying about the co-op being fun regardless of the story being omitted but the combat wasn't even that good.

On the plus side there was the awesome gliding the screen to kill stuff, but it was just so clunky and samey.

And as for the so called "art", could it BE any less inspired?! I fail to see how Nordic/Sci-Fi means consistent grey corridors. Plus the floating platform scene didn't blow me away, I just wondered how long it was gonna take, even Halo had floating platforms.

My thing that's pissed me off about this game is that Dyack has gone on and on about how awesome it is, when it just plain isn't.
Commented on 2008-08-09 01:03:46 In reply to Burglarize
what does the fact the game not showing you any cutscenes during Co-Op, to do with anything? Can't you do a speedrun on SP to see all cutscenes ( so you won't be spoiled by in-game areas without knowing why you are there ), and the Level-Up in co-op mode, where the main attraction is the mindless combat fun, and not to have to sit there seeing movies and waiting, at the same time as you buddie? Action, dammit.
The game can have many unpolished and strange Dev. decisions, but that... its only a logical thing to do.

A Director going on and on PRing its own game?

And not mine, and not many, many other dudes.
I'll probably bore to death with a game that you find fun, and vice-versa, so... yhea. If you're one of those who play this type of game (not sayn' you are) for the wrong reasons ( a new action game? fuck yes... a new DMC/GoW! all over my tits! ), then what do people expect?
The gameplay has a kinda unique approach and divides opinions. I have fun with it, I can see why others don't, really, but just stop impossing it is crap if others find it quite competent and decent... it's just not for you, and lets leave it at that, shall we?

What a reward that is...
Co-op is pretty pointless unless you're playing through the actual single player experience with a friend on multiple levels of difficulty

And it wiill be THE single-player that youre playn', just that all the cutscenes are canned probably so it can stays more as a non-stop action mode, than the SP mode.

Uninformed, much?

Oh my post made it sound like i said the game was going to flop because of the graphics sorry about that, this game will not flop because of it's shitty graphics but because of the horrible gameplay.

Don't get me wrong, I realise we have a difference of opinion, but I'd still like to voice to my opinion (before you retort that you're not stopping me, I wasn't suggesting that).

The thing about Dyack wasn't that he was PRing his game, I can even understand that he genuinely thinks that he's made a good game. My problem is that he just keeps ramping it, I just wish someone would tell him to calm down a bit and realise that he's found all his fans already.

What is this game, if not an action game? Come on man, it's an action adventure RPG. So there's no excuse of the combat to gobble balls.

I'd just rather my friend have the same quality experience as myself while he/she plays with me that I had in single player. Hell I'd rather play story mode in co-op than single player.
