If Only There Was Some Kind Of Game Trailer

You know, I was just sat here thinking: it’s been hours since I posted a game-related trailer footage. Ideally it would be a trailer in which dudes gets shot, other dudes get kicked, and even more dudes get exploded. It would also contain voice-over in which some slightly sinister older guy talks about weapons in a creepy way. Now THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING.

    Is this one of those console Halo games that I have been hearing about? The writing is just as cheesy and bad as all of those people who never shut up with complaints about it say.

    • 7rigger says:

      Wait, what?

      Are you saying the writing is as bad as stated, or it’s as bad as it’s critics are at criticizing it?



    • KindredPhantom says:

      Eh? Colour me confused by that comment. (Cinnamon’s)

    • Bhazor says:

      Unlike those great PC shooter stories ‘ey?

    • Gonefornow says:

      But cheesy ain’t bad. Quite the opposite.

      Also if a story IS bad, why should people not complain about it?

    • Kryopsis says:

      Crytek has hired Richard Morgan to write the story for Crysis 2 so yes, it’s going to be abominable.

    • noom says:

      I thought Richard Morgan sounded familiar. I remember now I’ve googled. Tried reading The Steel Remains a while back and stopped 100 pages in as I found it pretty awful. Maybe his Sci-fi output is better than that, but I kinda doubt it : \

    • Dougal McFrugal says:

      Read Altered Carbon, sort of hardboiled detective but scifi fusion. Good read

  2. DiamondDog says:

    Bulletstorm is looking pretty good!

  3. Handsome Dead says:

    Here is a much more important and interesting trailer.

    • Gonefornow says:

      Medieval fantasy trumps Sci fi anytime.

      Edit: In the light of recent revelations:
      PC Sci fi trumps console medieval fantasy anytime.

    • Njordsk says:

      Well, it’s not for PC.

    • Baka says:

      PS3 / XBOX only
      How is that important again?

    • Oozo says:

      At the risk of being taken down by the PC-exlusive-SWAT-team: Pretty excited about that one. I’m just approaching the end of my first playthrough of the first game – only a False King standing between me and the ending.

      And, hell, I’m allowed to say it here, and proudly so: After all, it was Quinns’ review that coaxed me into buying a PS3 pretty much for this game alone. Little did I know about suffering before. THANKS, Quinns.

    • Doesntmeananything says:

      Here’s to all great games which were never released on PC.

    • Man Raised by Puffins says:

      Yeah, I’m looking forward to this too. Demons Souls caught my eye but alas my consoletoy is merely a 360box.

    • 7rigger says:

      @Handsome Dead

      It’s definitely more interesting for me. Loved Demon’s Souls (is that apostrophe right?) and got rid of my ps3 recently. At least I still have my 360 – but I’d cream my jeans for a pc release.

    • DeathHamsterDude says:

      Nope. It’s not. It’s how it was titled, but the apostrophe should be after s, because it’s referring to multiple demons with multiple souls. So Demons’ Souls. ;) (*EDIT* UNLESS it’s actually referring to one demon with more than one soul? Which it is isn’t it, from what I remember of the game? Still though, clumsy phraseology!)

      That game alone however, seriously made me consider getting a PS3. Maybe there’ll be a port someday, although I doubt it. ;(

    • Oozo says:

      The sequel will be released for Xbox and PS3. Whatever that strange abbrevations mean anyway.

      And yeah. Would buy it for PC instead in an instant, but I guess a port is less than probable. I mean, just imagine what sort of problems those poor consolers have to suffer through! They have already twice threatened to swith off the servers, which will mean no more multiplayer, which will mean half the fun. Just imagine!

    • Handsome Dead says:

      For all of you naysayers I will tell you why this game is important: in this game you can have the ability to turn into a vase and tuck yourself among other vases to hide from other players.

      You can also coat yourself in solid iron or something. Whatever. VASES

  4. Ziv says:

    Is it just me or 0:17 had something really bad going with the ragdoll physics?

  5. Njordsk says:

    aweful music, explosing barrels, invincible dudes, destruction and big explosions…


    • Gap Gen says:

      Yeah, I thought they could have handled the backing music a little better. But still, this looks interesting. Interested to know who the humans are, though (unless they’re doing a Homefront, in which case feh).

    • Ubiquitous says:

      The music reminded me of all the 3D sonic game’s music. It was unfortunate.

    • Eukatheude says:

      Sounds like a New York, New York remix.

  6. DeathHamsterDude says:


    The future of our people’s faeces?

    And only I can finish what he started over a century ago? Man, he needs some industrial-grade laxatives.


    (Oh God, I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself! DON’T JUDGE ME! *sobs and runs away to huddle in a corner*)

    • 7rigger says:

      “The future of our people’s faeces? ”


      I’m pretty sure you can get something from strength mode too…

    • DeathHamsterDude says:

      Well . . . maximum speed poop = diarrhea anyway, that much is clear.

      I don’t think I’d enjoy maximum strength poop . . . or maximum armour now that I think of it (OH GOD NOOOOOOOOOO!).

    • bildo says:

      Straight Def init

  7. kyrieee says:

    Future subjunctive

  8. Mr Wonderstuff says:

    I’ve always disliked the way Crytek market their products with the schoolboy level marketing language they use. “Maximum game” just sounds atrocious when I first heard it in Crysis and this trailer really doesn’t help.

  9. Prince says:

    Some songs should quite simply NEVER be reznorized!

  10. Moni says:

    Everyone knows The Prodigy makes adverts better:

  11. Oak says:

    I can always count on the RPS comments section to make me feel like an easily-amused dullard.

    I want to play Crysis 2.

    • westyfield says:

      Same! Though I might have to put some dance music on if that trailer is representative of Crysis 2’s soundtrack.

    • HermitUK says:

      I quite enjoyed the MP demo on the 360. Assuming all is well with the PC demo, whenever it turns up, colour me interested as well.

      The first game, for all its flaws, is still the finest Korean/Chicken lobbing game that has been released to date.

    • Stephen Roberts says:

      I think I had a glib way of putting this but, basically, the negative commenters went to the effort of watching the video then posting about the game. That they don’t want to play. Apparently.

      I’m worried a little because it looks so bloody gung-ho. I played Crysis again recently and denied myself the used of cloak mode. The game suddenly becomes seriously fucking tricky and entertaining. I prefer it as a stealth shooter. I played Farcry the same way.

      Would it be a good idea to have a game where it’s like a stealth shooter but you just have one bullet and you’re on assassination missions and you have to use a variety of takedown, distraction and stealth mechanics to kill your target? On second thoughts (or first-and-a-half thoughts) there’s no point in a shooter without the shooty. Goddamn someone make Thief 4 already and make it better than ‘Thi4f’.

    • Man Raised by Puffins says:

      I suspect I’d be more interested if Crysis: Part the First didn’t hate my graphics card (which is my fault for presupposing that if I can run the demo just fine for 30 minutes the full game will be hunky dory; it turned out the game hard crashes, without fail, every 35 minutes).

    • Ubiquitous says:

      I do too, the visuals were pretty awesome.It’s probably going to be a lot of fun. I’m a little worried about linearity, but not too much. It’s just that the trailer’s music and voice acting were terribad. But that has never stopped me before!

      (Although I’m sure it could if it were a game based around spoken dialog, and music. Like say if I found Mass Effect 2’s voice work and music to be god-f-ing-awful then I might not have been as inclined to buy, or enjoy it as much as I did.)

    • HermitUK says:

      CryEngine 2 (used in Crysis and warhead) was pretty poorly optimised, especially at launch. I recall the second or third patch doubling my framerate on my rig at the time.

      I’ve been back to play it since (now that I can actually run it at decent settings and decent framerate) but I didn’t get past the second level – ran into a stupid bug whereby you miss a certain event trigger early in the level. Everything works fine up to the fight with the two tanks, after which you receive no new orders. Attempting to walk to the end of the level results in you finding rocks blocking the exit – the rocks are there to prevent players stealthing to the end without finishing all the objectives.

    • RLacey says:

      I want this.

      *returns to trying to finish Crysis before Crysis 2 gets released*

    • dragonhunter21 says:

      Stephen: If you haven’t already, go play Hitman: Blood Money. You’ve essentially described it in a nutshell with your description- and if you want, you can go in with no guns and use trickery and deception to take out your targets. Crazy fun.

  12. coldvvvave says:

    If SDK is there I want someone to make a Deus Ex mod.

    Within six months.

  13. kristian says:

    wow, there’s even an achievement in the end.

  14. Tunips says:


  15. DOLBYdigital says:

    Somehow this trailer actually got me less excited for this game….. not sure why

    Also has it been confirmed that they will release the SDK?? If not then I may not even get this game, they better, I want more kick ass mods like Mechwarriors :)

  16. Tommo says:

    sigh @ the enemy AI just standing there shooting. i thought we had advanced from that?!

  17. zombiemaster81 says:

    Not at all excited, as i left superheroes waaaaay back in time. I like tactical gunplay where you use your brain and reflexes, and die real fast if you screw up.
    Not like your average teen shooter.
    The enigne looks great, and i loved Farcry, but the armoured suit really ruined Crysis for me for some reason.
    Bring on Red Orchestra 2.

  18. zombiemaster81 says:

    “Would you like cheese with your gorgeous graphics sir?”
    “No, plz. No Cheese, just the graphics.”
    “I´m sorry sir, You MUst Have Cheese!”
    “Allright then, i´ll take the cheese too, like every other time *sigh*”

  19. Christian Dannie Storgaard says:

    The alien robots seem to have a slight Robocop 2 vibe which just might be enough for me to want to play this. Also, sound at 1:52 = yum.
