Crysis 2 PS3 demo inferior to other versions
PS3 demo in-game screenshot representing the final build
Gamers who have downloaded the recently released PS3 demo of Crysis 2 aren’t pleased. There have been reports from various sources that the PS3 demo is a pain to play through and suffers from a bevy of game-breaking issues.
When compared to the Xbox 360 and PC demos which were released weeks earlier, gamers feel that the PS3 demo of Crysis 2 is by far, the worst one.
We’ve also checked it out and it does suffer from many issues, especially suffering from inconsistent framerates and a poor resolution.
Below are a few of the issues which the majority of players have complained about:
- Framerates drops lower than 30 on many occassions.
- The server’s are unstable and laggy
- HUD bobbles a lot.
- The PS3 version runs at the resolution of 1024×720 which is sub-HD and looks poor.
- Some sequences causes temporary freezing issues.
- Hit detection has issues and do not register sometimes
- Broken Melee system
- Matchmaking issues, troublesome to find games.
Considering, there’s only one week for the game to release worldwide, one can assume that this is, pretty much the final build of the game, and if so, things aren’t looking pretty for Crytek. Considering the outlash against the PS3 demo by gamers who’ve played it, it seems the PS3 version isn’t what Crytek claimed it to be and things aren’t looking pretty for gamers.
One can only know if the retail build is any better but as of now, the game performs very poorly on the PS3 and isn’t even close to the best looking shooter ever made on the console.
