Default Re: Crysis....why all the hype......

Well does Halo 3 get its own section for discussion here at nvnews?


Maybe sites have dedicated sections for Halo 3; I just have never noticed any PC game that has been hyped up as much as Crysis.

I'm not saying it's bad at all, it's awesome and has amazing graphics, I'm just saying I don't think it's as worthy of all the hype, no game or anything on the face of the planet is worthy of that much hype.

There was sooo much media on Crysis before launch it was unbelievable.

No other game has flooded the internet quite as much IMO. I felt like I was playing it for a second or 3rd time when it was my first time playing through it.

When you have the net flooded with that much info, screens, movies, adds previews, betas, and separate discussion sections it's bound to be spoiled for ya. Oh well hype away..

I find it funny how every screenshot posted is that of the jungle maps, goes to show just how mediocre crysis gets with the following levels.

Maximum pants.........

I have to disagree. The hype it received was only for its graphics. And I recall always hearing people on forums and on some previews saying that the game itself just didn't look interesting and they expected the gameplay to be bland. I heard this almost all the time. So expectations were quite low. However, it turns out the graphics met its expectations and gameplay far exceeded it.

YAWN YAWN YAWN tbh...

Like i said the screenshot thread is riddled with the jungle map...simply saying that shouldn't there be more screenshots of the later levels.

Damn, Crysis must be making these people idiotic.

I can also be childish and type insults that only come clear when highlighted....Your very intelligent lol....Its a shame that this forum which is awesome for tech and gaming is full of children like yourself-or at least you act that way.

It didn't occur to you that people don't want to spoil all of the plot for other people? And I thought the indoor environments and cutscenes on the hangar level was pretty darn impressive.
