The storyline was indeed pants and rather short. Still at least it can run on my PC!
Richard Morgan didn't write the story of the first Crysis game.
But the story in Crysis was better (IMHO) than the MW2 one, plus it looked better and wasn't a lazy dumb console port.
I don't hold out much hope for Crysis 2 though, given that it is coming out on consoles.
How the **** did MW2 win awards for its storyline?!
Did you see the list on nominations? It was terrible! Also only developers who applied could win, most didnt apply i presume.
Personally i liked the story, abit far fetched but ahwell..
Few things that need wrapping up with the ending though.
And the original Crysis wasn't really great story wise was it?
dunno, i didnt see MW2's that bad, it wasnt groundbreaking, but it wasnt that bad
Yeah, the award was only open to those games that had storys written by writers in the WGA...but the WGA doesn't generally recognise "Game Writer" as credit enough to warrant an induction, so it was kind of self-defeating really.
Me, I liked the plot. It was stupid. It was mindless. It made no sense at points. But, so what? It pulled you through the action and kept me entertained enough that I didn't start screaming about plotholes until I'd finished it, at which point I was past caring all that much. It was like True Lies - silly, but fitting with what it tries to be.
Let's hope Crysis 2's story is up to scratch then!
Well, given that Richard Morgan is a published author, it had better be
The story better be good after this.
Still as Flibblebot pointed out, he has published work, so it does look promising. If the story does end up really good in Crisis 2 then maybe other developers will get decent story writers in on their teams
well, at least MW2 has great set pieces, love how each mission will have at least one great view and great bit of gameplay. running across the roof tops, sniping to defend a point, EMP-ed city.
if Crysis 2 writer says this, they'll have to produce better story. if it's anything like Far Cry or Crysis 1, then im sorry, it's a fail.
Crysis blows MW1 & 2 out of the water in terms of practically everything.
The story was bad, and it was over (like MW) in far too quick a time. Loved crysis tho!
NO YOUR STORYS BAD.
This is what this article amounts to.
Yeh the story of Crysis was simple and effective and the gameplay was far superior. I recently did a third playthrough of Crysis and found places I hadn't seen before and managed to do every bit of the game using different tactics. You definitely can't do that in MW2.
Modern Warfare 2 follows what is regularly seen in Michael Bay films. Its like a mindless "sugar high" of action and explosions...That's it.
Games like Uncharted 2...Now that was a fun game with storyline! It's like Indiana Jones, but it utterly craps on "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"!
You'd think that, but from what I've gathered there are 2 teams working on it, 1 on the console release and another team on the PC release.
Let me guess, the console team is the finest brains EA could muster...and the PC version is handled by Steve from the canteen.
Wow, Richard Morgan is writing Crysis 2? This could be AMAZING!
