Crysis 2 Vs. COD Black Ops: A Disappointment

By Peter Chubb - Jan 26, 2011

Crysis 2 has a lot to live up to from its predecessor, but it is COD Black Ops that could make things a little tough for the game. The bar has been set high, which we we recently explained. However, a recent comparison between the demo of the upcoming FPS and the recent Call of Duty game could spoil things.

It seems that Crysis 2 is a bit of a disappointment, and NowGamer has listed 5 reasons why. Let us get one thing straight first; this is just a demo so there will be improvements. However, playing a demo is always a good enough gauge to see how well a game will perform, and it seems that Electronic Arts still has some work to do.

In the mini-review we are asked not to get too excited about a game that is said to be a cross between Halo and Call Of Duty, as you will be disappointed. We can clearly see that a number of elements have been taken from each game, but it is the implementation of them that needs some work.

Do not let the negatives of the game put you off, as you will be pleased with some of the positives. One such positive is the speed and agility of the game – not as real as Black Ops, but awesome nevertheless.

Crysis 2 Beta was released yesterday for PS3, and Lazygamer has spent a little bit of time with the game. They seem to contradict what NowGamer has said, as they believe that Crysis performs just as well as Halo Reach and Black Ops. Do not take their word for it, download the beta now and let us now you thoughts?
