I wonder how the campaign will be for this game. Running around a city does not seem as exciting as an island/subterranean alien environment/aircraft carrier......

"But it's somewhat sad to read that gamers are even cheating in demos. Seriously, is it really worth the trouble?"
It's not just a demo, it's the only means of playing the game for almost a full month.

Sad you have to cheat in a game. I thought it was funny how I got killed over and over and only had one kill the whole time mean while others had like 20 kills.

If there are cheaters on the servers I have been playing they need to use a different cheat mechanism because I usually end up with a 4:1 kill death ratio and the MVP. Maybe Battlefield games have just made me a better FPS player than the COD players.

soldier37This was inevitable with no anti cheat measures added. There is always someone out there looking to exploit at all costs just for the win. Sad.

Maybe that's why I suck so much at the game. =(

I also hate that Armor constantly drains energy, strength is auto, speed is auto, I still don't know how to modify weapons, it seems, everything 6hat was in Crysis Wars that I like, was taken out.

i'm fine with the new armor mode but i don't like it when i need energy to run. when the energy totally depleted (0%) i can't run at all. honestly why do you need energy for a simple running in the first place? speed mode should be like the one in original nanosuit

Nah. Stealth is really easy to see once you're used to the game. Needs a (slight) buff, IMO.

Customizing your weapons is done through the customize equipment menu... Personally, I like having speed/strength being automatic. The first game was too... I don't want to say complicated... chaotic? It's not that you couldn't get used to it, it just wasn't very intuitive.

I haven't played the demo yet, but from the video comparisons I've seen on youtube, all of the "this is just a console game" is total bull****. The console version looks 5 years older. The PC lighting looks 1000 times better. The textures are tons better. If you have any clue about PC gaming, you'd be able to see the PC version is far superior, graphically.

So, after I finally get the game to run on my old system, spend a few laggy moments admiring the graphics only to suddenly get my arse handed to me by some twelve year old in a foreign country who should be in bed anyway...

It's nothing to do with my eathmath skills.

Ah! I feel much better now I know there are cheaters

I'm pretty sure most are not aware that the number of tech savvy users is steadily growing in our more technology oriented days than it was in the past, every kid that comes out of school can barley wait for a challenge for his technical and programming skills. How best to show of then hack a game to smack your friend in the face.
As a programmer i know all programmers did it eventually to prove to yourself and to others how good you are at what you do. Then you get a job and a family and everything cools back down. But new talent needs new ways and places to prove themselves.

The demo as far as cry engine 3 goes is fantastic. The lighting is great, smooth frames, etc. But if they are worried about cheating then why not take away "aim assist" for the PC. That is a console oriented gag, yet you can still get it on PC?? Sounds close to an aim bot if you ask me....

I'm enjoying the demo, i don't thin i've encountered anycheaters yet. the gameplay is smooth and fun, the the suit adds some good tactics to play in armor in after a stomp on an objective then armor up to lay waste to the remaining in capturing pods, or in kill mode stealth stalk somebody then up and mele bash kill is pretty rewarding

Cheaters will be the demise of PC gaming. These companies don't want to put the time, effort and money into keeping these kids, with no lives apparently, from ruining the game, they will just stop making the games for pc.

Don't take away Aim Assist. I am using the 360 Wireless controller (I can't stand the Mouse/KB because I like to play on my 65" HDTV on my couch). I am having alot of fun with the demo. I also have the demo on my 360 and the PC version looks 100 times better. I am definitely getting the PC version.

Played for almost 10 hours now (yeah, sad I know for a demo!) Only come across one instance of cheating where some ass killed the whole opposite team instantly.

Apart from that is a good game though, that nano suit does a good job of provoking fast creative game play (in short controlled bursts).

The demo mode should let everyone play in God mode. Finished with cheat issues.
Let them live forever, let them keep their weapons, and find cheats for killing everyone else (who in God mode just happen to fall to the floor and stand up again).

It takes away a real deal of gameplay, while it gets rid of the cheat issues. People wanting to play the game the way they supposed to, should buy the real version!

It's a console port (aim assist, "press start" at menu screen, etc.), what did they expect. Not condoning cheating or saying that it would stop even ifjavascript: void(0); it was a perfect PC-exclusive, but it certainly didn't help.

Cheating in online games is nothing new. So those who comment about it bringing about the end of PC gaming must really either be very young or just saying such in a console bias. Plus console games are now suffering from cheating as well.

However since the brilliant anti-cheat system that is VAC2 which brought in the idea of avoiding instant bans so flagged players had no idea the cheat was even being caught up till a month no cheaters can be warned to save their accounts virtually putting any "safe" hack into private groups.
All anti-cheats should work in this manner.

Also remember people who cheat do not do it for the score, or because they can't play. They do it to anger you. That is where they get their enjoyment from. Don't respond to them and do not let them get to you and they will most of the time simply leave to find another game to find a more expressive victim .
