    Searched around for a thread on this, but to my surprise I couldn't find one. Apologies if I missed it.

    Anyway, been playing the demo, and I enjoy it quite a bit. The campaign looks pretty sweet based on most of the videos I've seen.

    Discuss away!

    Well, it comes out in a little over a week. Gonna download the PS3 demo tomorrow. Not sure if I'll buy it next Tuesday. Gonna see what the reviews are like.

    I loved the first one, but I'm always worried when previously PC franchises say they're "streamlining" for consoles (see DeusEx Invisible War). I think I'll wait for some user feedback before taking the plunge. If it's not worth the asking price, I can always rent the console version. Much rather play the PC one though.

    The 360 version has gotten a 9/10 from a few magazines, but that's all the reviews we have. I'm not much of a PC gamer, but I hope it is similar to the original, just for the fact that the PC gaming market hasn't been great lately.

    Problem is, I don't know if I trust magazine reviews, you know? They seem... off sometimes. I don't want to say the publishers buy them off, but I prefer to wait till actual human people I know have it. Like here - hope folks report back on how they're finding it! Particuarly folks with experience of the first. I have high hopes, I tend to like most of Crytek's games.

    Just wish there was a singleplayer demo. I know my PC handles it from the multiplayer (max settings... glorious), but it seems they're putting singleplayer on the backseat. I guess it's probably because that's where the core console audience lies, but still, it unnerves me.

    Damn i sound pessimistic. I'm still looking forward to it, despite all that. :D

    Oh boy, here comes the console/PC gaming flame war.

    Nah. I like PC gaming, but I just prefer console gaming, as it's just easier overall. The games the same on whatever you play it on. Well, except who you play with on multiplayer.

    Guilty. :eek: 

    I myself am getting it for the 360. More excited for the campaign than the multiplayer, as I am with most games. Just with it had some form of a cooperative mode.

    With you on both of those points. I don't know how the aliens will compare to the North Koreans in the original, but I hope they can provide the same thrills whilst stealth-fighting your way to glory.

    A co-op mode would be glorious. It's practically built for it, too, being the players elite, high tech super soldiers. No one to play it with though. Ha. :D 

    I do like the weighty feel of things in the demo, whilst still feeling fluid at the same time. The handling is really nice, from what I can tell.

    I don't have the original Crisis - But i'm thinking I should hunt it down before playing the sequel - is it one of those games that requires registering the game so I need to try to find a sealed on or can I buy a second hand one with no worries ?

    I'm not sure, I think most do these days though. I got mine off steam anyway, it's pretty cheap on there.

    Dl'ed the demo the other day but hav'nt played it yet. Probably don't need to since it's on the get list. Wanted to play the first one like a mofo but don't have the setup.
    Being able to play it on the 360 and get some cheevos is going to be cool.

    Well I never paid attention to it then played the demo. Now I'm trying to get up to speed with Crysis 2. I was looking for a good FPS and was considering Battlefield 3 but iI'm going to get this instead.

    Finally tried the demo. Definitely skipping this. I agree that it's probably a beast on PC, but what I saw didn't impress me at all.

    Today, except for the fact that it isn't on the PS Store yet. Pisses me off.

    What seemed to be the problem with it, if you don't mind me asking. I only went on the demo for five minutes to see what settings I could manage and jump around, then quit because I hate mp in games. I'd be interested in your opinions. :)

    In all fairness, the demo needs to be tuned. Hopefull this will get sorted by the time of release or a few weeks after with a patch. The shotgun for example to too powerful; taking 1 shot to kill a person. Now this sucks because Shotgun vs anything always ends up with the shotsun winning because the range is crazy.
