I really enjoyed the demo for this.  I'm not an MP expert, though, so I can't tell you all the little details that people seem to like about these games, but I know that this one had some different mechanics that were still manageable (getting Maximum Armor or Maximum Cloak to work, for example) and I was able to not be at the very bottom of the rankings the whole game, so I had fun.  Looks purty, too.

Has anyone had any issue's with the game freezing on the loading of the map screen? Happens to me every time I try and play a game. Get into the lobby ok, game begins to load and then BAM, it freezes and I have to reboot my system. I have read in other forums like official xbox and people are have the same issue but no solution. So was wondering if anyone here had the same issue and maybe had a fix?

I tried to play the demo, but nobody could get past the lobby.  There was a full group of people there and all any of us saw were 'retrieving level information', or something along those lines for 5-10 minutes.  I tried twice, same results both times.  I'll likely try again tomorrow.

Same problem again tonight.  Keeps kicking me out when the match launches.  I haven't been able to play one match yet. 

This does not bode well for the full game.

I'm hoping this thread is so slow because you're all playing the PC version, otherwise you're missing out.

So far this has been really good. Graphics are very sharp and although I only have an hour into it at this point I am really enjoying the multiplayer. It's VERY fast paced compared to Call of Duty. Weapons are pretty good so far and there seems to be a lot of customization, but I haven't ranked up much so I haven't hit many unlockable attachments.

I'll post some impressions on the campaign if I can peel myself away from the multiplayer tonight.

I mostly haven't commented because I didn't have enough time to rave about it.  I still don't, but so far I think both SP and MP are fantastic.

From what I hear, the SUIT and the way it changes up the otherwise pretty standard normal military shooter aspects is what makes the game, along with the graphics of course.

The plot, characters, and acting all seem a bit throwaway.

as usual, doubt I touch single player, but so far the multiplayer is quite fun.  Engagements are a bit smaller scale than preferred but the fun is here.  Once again I really wish there was a way to hit B without taking thumb off right stick though. frown

Played quite of few hours of multiplayer with Hark and Jarrod and had a blast.  Only played 2 levels of the single player but so far very pretty and intense.  Very happy with my purchase.

I agree, this was a good buy. I'm also two levels in the single player. Played multiplayer for a couple hours last night. TDM is good fast paced stuff. Balance so far is great, but as with any p2p host seems to have a big advantage at times.

I switched mostly due to the fact Kato couldn't play Homefront at all.  Not due to anything wrong with Homefront itself.  There was some bug in Homefront causing it to lock up certain systems pretty much every time and he happened to have one of those systems.

Crysis is pretty fun, it's really just a more mobile and fluid COD.  There are certainly some annoying things, but every tactic in the game has a counter which puts it above COD for me slywink

Well I guess I'll try to knock off the Homefront SP and get it up on Goozex for an early access credit. Still working towards 50 on Rift and I haven't played Crysis 1 so I'll probably save some cash and wait for Brink.

Crysis 2 is a much better game than Homefront, though.

I'm enjoying Crysis 2 so far. That said, I would actually rather play Homefront MP, more to my taste than the hyperactive COD style that Crysis 2 uses, especially if there aren't a couple of other friends to play with.

well i put in a few hours last night and this morning on the single player,i was taking my time,looking for collectables and sneaking through and taking enemies out one at a time,overall i think i had 3 hrs or so on the clock,then i came to a crash site,and i wiped out the first lot of guards but then a guard in a truck(mounted weapon0caught me off guard and i got killed

reloaded....hard freeze...restart 360 and game...resume campaign...nope,save corruption

so,because it doesn't let you save it(or make multiple saves),instead it auto saves,i will have to start the game again finger

The save system in general seems to be very buggy, but the rest of the game is mostly fine. Issues with saving I've seen so far:

- You lose nano catalysts when you exit the game. I've always started at 0 every time I've started the game so far, regardless of what I had when I turned it off.
- A sniper rifle I really could have used was available on my first run through an area, and I used it to good effect. Then I died and had to restart from the last save, but the rifle was no longer there. In other words, reloading while in the game might not refresh the world state exactly as it was when you saved.

The game also fails to save your cd key in the PC version unless you enter the multiplayer menus, type in your key, go back to singleplayer, enter the multiplayer menus and type in your key again.

Yikes, I think I might concentrate more on MP for now and wait for a patch.

I got a great deal on Crysis 2 and couldn't pass it up.  I'm really pleased with it so far, although I continue to be awful in the MP.  Really bad, like 1 kills/13 deaths kind of stuff.  When I finally got 9 kills/10 deaths I was celebrating.  retard

Try to really focus on staying with your team. In this game strength is numbers... unless you are Hark, who so far has been better then I can fathom in the multiplayer portion.

unfortunately i seems other people are having similar problems,some are just freezes and while a few others are getting the black screens(of death)..someone mentioned that you can restart the level you are on instead of restarting altogether,so i may try that...but the fact is i am not very far in really,its just that i took a few hours because i was enjoying the stealth and wait..instead of going in guns blazing like most shooters

EDIT:just looked i am/was on level 2,if not including the beginning(that you can't replay)

as for Online i am also pretty terrible...i did get 11 kills and 8 deaths once and came second in my team but that is the best i have done up to now straight after that game i got 3 kills and 8 deaths icon_confused,i have already got the 'framed' dogtag(being the victim of the final kill)

i have got one dogtag called 'Codpiece' -get the most groin shots,LOL

played MP last night with Nonnahob, Macker and Hark and I got 4 hard lockups - either in the middle of the match or at the loading screens. retard icon_mad Very frustrating. I could hear the ambient music etc but nothing beyond either a black screen or a simple lockup. At times not even the controller would respond. I had to eject the disk each time and start the process all over again.
I hope there is a patch for it.......

Gamefly shipped the PS3 version, so it looks like I'll be skipping the MP with the crew.

Has anyone had the same problems in SP on the PS3 or is it only on the Xbox?
