Crysis Warhead Game Revealed

Two days ago, Crytek published information that it will no longer patch Crysis for "a good reason". Apparantly the good reason is now believed to be called Crysis Warhead, the second game in the Crysis trilogy. If you try to visit Crytek's home page, a teaser image of Crysis Warhead will appear before the actual page, dropping a hint at what's imminent. No other details, such as platforms or a release date, have been unveiled. It's only an image at the moment, but more information will follow sooner or later.

Erm have you seen Predator? One and two, both. How did people react there?

Anyway tell me ONE, only ONE game where those things you mention don't happen or where something "intelligent" happens. Halo... Please don't make me laugh.

In Crysis when they are looking for you they spread and cover as much area as they can, while covering each others flanks. If they spotted you and disapeared they go there and move in range. And they do many more things.

Sometimes I think I played some kind of improved version of Crysis or something, as it runs better than what many others say and do thing that other's game doesn't seem to do.
In Halo, when an enemy is clearly outmatched (you killed most of their friends), they run in terror. In Crysis, as I said, you can kill 20 Koreans and the remaining survivor doesn't change the way they act at all. For all you could tell nothing happened except they detected something strange.

Also, in Halo, there are several distinct and clearly formed different forms of A.I. depending on who your fighting. The little guys will run away quicker. The shield guys call for help, the elites charge with brutal confidence, or take cover when things turn sour. In crysis, there are essientially two A.I. The Koreans, every one who acts identically to the next, and the aliens, who basically are sparratic and it could be debated whether they even qualify as A.I. There are the machines as well, again, just a few set manovers which they carry out relentlessly.

And no, I've only seen a little of predator, but I don't find movies of its nature are terribly realistic, just action packed, so I wouldn't exactly take A.I. cues from them. Laugh all you want, I found myself doing so often at the A.I. in Crysis. :)

Will the sequel be "Pure" DX 10.1?

If so, it will be interesting to see how the "next gen" cards handle the increase to higher resolutions with everything on very high ...

*They do react to flashlights, but I guess you are talking about the distance from where they respond, yeah that issue reminds me of Metal Gear :laugh:
still better than AI reactions to flashlights in STALKER - hell, you didn't even need that buggar on at night to be spotted . . . but for you hunting down enemies at night, without nightvision, you had to rely on enemy flashlights, which really made it difficult - but flashlights in the dark are like beacons from a long distance, y'know?

I've seen somethings with the AI in Crysis that really caused me to change my tactics - some things that I wouldn't have expected from AI in other games - i.e. cloaking right in front of an enemy, they'll look around for you, and then might sweep-fire in the last spot they saw you . . . first time that happened it really caught me off my guard;

I guess, IMHO, the AI had it's highs, and it's lows - I expected a little better group organization from the AI, not group organization equal to the harder levels of FEAR (which had really great AI for it's time). I mean, it works great at first, but once you've picked up on the AI's "tricks" and learned their limitations (how long they'll look for you, firing at them from x distance only results in them dancing in place, stealing a vehicle is great for fighting groups because they don't target vehicle weak spots, etc), it's real easy to work around

There are some problems with that:

1- It's pirating anyway. There's a reason for demos to exist.

2- If the reason you didn't like it is "how the game runs" chances are (75+%) the problem is the crack.

3- Probably you would end up playing the whole pirated game instead of buying it.
i gotta call bs on this.

for years demo's of games have SUCKED compared to the acctual game, OR they make the game seem fun, but once you have it you find that all they did was pull the few fun parts out and make a demo.

as to runs like crap due to cracks, again BULLSHIT, many times games i OWN run BETTER with the crack then with the DRM enabled.

example i owned(sold to a friend) bioshock, that game sucked so hard, the DRM caused me problems from day one, i cracked it and bam the game ran smooth as silk, but still sucked because it was boring as hell.

some other examples are
crysis x64, the drm built into the x64 version is buggy as hell, use the cracked no disk exe and the game runs BETTER then it did with the official exe, GOW same deal.

if companys want to stop piracy, they need to put out better demo's and charge a reasonable price, when you jack up the price to make as much as possable per sale you loose alot of sales to people who JUST CANT AFFORD IT, then shit like crytek dumping support, that dosnt lead to people being willing to buy more copys of the game, it leads to the copying of your disks and slaping patches and cracks on a disk and passing it around to friends.

i been in the gaming scene for a VERY long time, and i can tell you 99 out of 100% a games properly cracked the game runs BETTER without the DRM bullshit.

I have acctualy had staff at game developers pm me links or email me unprotected exe's for games that had issues because it was 100% the drm causing both the perf and stab issues with the game.

worse was starfarce, jesus, that thing killed hardware, out right KILLED IT, saw it kill ide controlers on no less then 6 systems........that sure makes the game run better, when ur hdd/optical drive cant work anymore because it or its controler where killed........

DRM is a bad joke, its a way to ripp stupid executives off by making them feel that they are doing something proactive to stop piracy......

Is that Nomad? He looks like a phede
Kinda looks like psycho but idk.. it could be either. Maybe they are brothers :eek: and the aliens are like the nano suit makers. They sold the suits to the US government and the koreans were on the island and stole some suits cause a alien ship crashed.

However you DID say that you didn't download it because the seed:leetch was too low for you.
How DID you play it then?

I think the problem is that most people will exaggerate any problem they find in a game until it SEEMS like it's a major problem. Also when we're all bitching about our exaggerated problems with the games we tend to add other problems to ours until we have the worst game ever made in history.
Honestly I had the problem with a few copters making the constant rattling and once I was walking on top of some wreckage and randomly died, but I didn't find it to be any problems that made the game unplayable, just somthing I found mildly annoying.

I still haven't played Crysis, so this new one doesn't excite me much. I won't play it until my rig can play it completely maxed at 1920x1200. And even if my rig could play it maxed, I won't buy it until it comes down to a reasonable price. Say $30.

If you got that massive oc game stable on your gt, you could play it maxed at 1920x1200 no problem, and quite a marvel it would be. Sure, it may dip, just don't get obsessed w/ fps, don't even look at the fps, if you let yourself you will likely enjoy the spectacle.

I hope crytek make a much better sequel... Crysis looks like a graphic demo... a not bad playable game but with a shit story, easy as hell, short, lineal, ia was bad... in conclusion it could be much better. If they had worked much more and with more objetives they could make one of the best games but... they prefer to make a more "child" product for sell more and more... 1 million of copies (on 02/2008, I suppose that now they had sold much more) and they say that pirates ruin their market... make a better game...
Do not expect any more on graphics... some new effects and (I hope) a few optimization based on config...
Looks like to me like a HL2 Episodies... nothing new, only continues the story... a expansion pack, not a new game.

Pff and you complain about the performance... :slap:
A well built crack, makes the game load faster. Why do you think it makes it take a performance hit? :roll:

No, I've only tested gaming stability at 800/2000/1100, and so far only using COD4. Perfectly stable. Still need to try others, but time has been short lately.

As I said, I played a diferent game! :eek:

In mine when outpowered the enemies would do one of these things:

1- RUN to another basement or enemy groups and then return with assistance.

2- MAKE SIGNALS from afar, shouting to call the attention of a not too distant group and I swear I have even seen them whistling.

3- If you let them reach to the point they have them, they will use flares to call reinforcements.

There is one thing that foes didn't do in my Crysis game and that is stay without doing anything. IF YOU used Predator tactics all the time killing enemies one by one IT'S NORMAL they didn't react, just as happened in PREDATOR, they will stay in panic. That's what happens when I do that, but if only one enemy spotted me killing another he calls every others to my position, until I dissapear off course. When this happpens they start shooting as mad to the point I was. That's alot more advanced than the lame reactions of Halo and Halo2. Don't know about 3 though.

EDIT: Anyway forget about Predator. Think about Rambo films, First Blood specifically.

Yes, ofc, but exclude an error because another games has these error is a BIG ONE error!
Note: It's an error for me, I suppose that many players loves linear playing, me not.
An Crysis is VERY linear, it gives the player a false "freedom" apperance, but the fact is that the "only" alternate way for the game is a few secondary missions... that normally comes with the main mission... so wtf? you have a good world that you don't use!! go here. kill here. go here. kill here and get info. Crytek... you need to work more on non-graphics related content!

But you can take whatever the path you want to take to achieve that, both spatial and tactical. Only shoter that has more open gameplay is STALKER. You can't call the second a loser as is better than ALL the others in that respect. You can expect them to improve, but bashing the game is the BIG ERROR.

Since you don't like linear gameplay AND you cansider Crysis as linear, I guess you didn't play any game this last year. Was STALKER released in 2007?

I gotta say, Crysis was not all that good. Single player was short, so I am happy to see a continuation of the story line.
