So what you buying ?


[link to this post]
 
So will it be Homefront a week on Friday or will it be Crysis 2 the following week,will it be both or will it be neither.

As stated in recent posts i am completely unsure about Homefront,one minute it looks pants when i look at the single player and next video i watch of Multiplayer it looks interesting and intriguing once again.

Anybody else feel the same about this game or has any nagging doubts and concerns.

There is a couple of reviews out PSN magazine giving it 83% out of 100 and the Official playstation magazine [Italy] giving the game a 9/10.

PSN reports single player is a mere 5 hours long but wanted more at the end as it was quite action packed and different..................

I will monitor these reviews closely especially next week just before release as depending on some of the major gaming sites i may yet cancel

Neither.

I dont think homefront will pack anything worthwhile, I was hoping it might have a decent campaign but as you mentioned then, 5 hr campaign?

Crysis 2 from what i've seen and heard it looks pretty but thats about it, the story is wishywashy and misses quite a few important things from crysis 1 namely the main characters, suit abilities are too compressed and no replacements are provided leaving you to toggle between a couple of proper ones, plus they pretty much ditched the whole destructible environment thing from crysis 1. I guess if you like the multiplayer part of it you might want to pick it up.

It seems both these games are stacked towards multiplayer hoping for the best with a single player campaign tacked on, unimpressive really.

I'm going for homefront first. It might not be amazing but it can't be worse than Black Ops!

In a couple of months when I have FTTC I will get crysis.

The reason for that is the lag I get at the moment means having to adjust your style of play somewhat. That's much easier to do on this type of game (like the cod series).

I never played Crysis 1, but my friend was playing it on the PC at the weekend.
May have been a demo, is it actually released on the PC yet?
Anyway, linked up to the 46" plasma it looked fantastic.
Trouble is it's got lots of jumping/stomping/sliding moves going on! Was great fun, but don't think my laggy connection would make the most of that in multiplayer if I have to camp down!

Will definitely give it a go on my new connection though. Doubt it will look as sharp on the PS3 unfortunately. frown

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

Actually i have heard that crysis 2 is at least a solid 12 hour single player experience and the multiplayer will take you at least 60 hours of online gaming to fully rank up[thats if your good enough]

I am hoping that Homefront turns out to be a sleeper hit and has a great online experience ,but until the main gaming sites and magazines start reviewing it little is known.

Been flicking between the Playstation version of crysis 2 and 360 because of some gaming site saying the playstation version had serious flaws,then i read about this in another gaming magazine/site and they said it looked incredible for a console and none of the mentioned flaws had they noticed.

Problem for me nothing excites me more than a new game especially when its decent.

i bought DCS:A-10C recently (i actually got it while it was stil in beta but it went retail a week or two ago) its an incredible game if your into flight sims, people might have heard of the previous game by the same devs DCS: Black Shark both are super complex study sims but they are a lot of fun once you learn how things work, satisfying as well when you successfully drop a gbu on a tank or kill one with the A10's main gun much more so than most games that dont really require any skill to play. this is a promo video for A10-C

Brink looks like it might be worth a blast and is released on 20th May so a little way off yet. Sad to see it only supports 8 players each side though but gameplay sounds interesting from the preview at Bit Tech I just linked to.

Brink has me interested but it does look very much like Team Fortress with cartoon type characters

Duke Nukem Forever, Portal 2 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood are what I'm eyeing at the moment, DRM and user feedback permitting. All on PC.
