From the Manufacturer

Crysis 2 is the sequel to one of the greatest PC first-person shooters yet created. Featuring futuristic war, gorgeous destruction and the chance to kick alien butt on the grandest stage of all, New York City, Crysis 2 is destined at the least to equal its predecessor, if not surpass it. Additional features include: challenging AI enemies in the single player campaign, 12-player support online, new and improved upgradable Nanosuit 2 technology and more.

Crysis 2 game logo


The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens have returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind, starting by trying to rip the heart out of Earth's most iconic city.

In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city's systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before. Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen.

Yet one man will inherit that means to survive. One supersoldier, wielding the combat enhancement technology of the future with Nanosuit 2, will make the last stand to save humanity from destruction in the urban jungle that is New York City.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive DLC May 31, 2012
I don't know about you, but I'm not up for paying $20 for another few maps and a new weapon! Amazon sent me a coupon for $20 off, because I purchased Crysis 2 from them. Still, it's a ridiculously overpriced product.

The first Crysis was a beautiful slideshow of a middle-finger to everyone with a sub-$300 graphics card when it came out. Rendering huge densly-packed vistas over miles and miles it showcased all the effects one feasibly COULD put into a single engine, all at once, all the time. The fact that also played very well was icing on the beautiful cake, and I, like everyone else, loved sneaking through its near-photorealistic jungles and battling aliens and the KPA. Half a decade later, with a video card that can actually run it, Crysis remains the best looking PC game you can play today and a testament to how awesome PC gaming can be.

Sadly everyone stole it. Like EVERYONE. Conservative estimates put Crysis at easily the most pirated PC game in history.

Understandably burned by this, Crytek developed their next game for console. This has had good and bad effects, because while Crytek managed to squeeze obscenely good performance out of a console game, and while the PC release does have a lot more bells and whistles, no console on the market can contain the raw power of the cryengine, and sacrifices were made.

First, the game doesn't look quite as shockingly real as Crysis did. It still looks leaps and bounds better than many other games on the market, but the water and glass are reflection mapped instead of reflective*, not every surface is as casually parallax mapped (the use of a graphical map to add geometric depth to surfaces) as the ground was in Crysis, and some clouds, buildings, and objects of interest in the distance are textural props instead of real geometry.

Second, the game world is a little more confined. This is not as bad as people have made it out to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Troublesome to Install December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
I downloaded the game twice through Amazon, and couldn't get it to install. First time the download was corrupted, and apparently the folks who wrote the Amazon download manager didn't think to break large downloads into smaller pieces if a piece get's corrupted.

The second time I downloaded it, the game installed but wouldn't accept my authorization code without downloading Origin, EA's Downloadable Rights Management program which has a handful of other "features". I didn't want to download Origin, I've heard many bad things about it, so I tried to use the activation code on Steam. The code wouldn't work, even though Steam now sells this exact version of Crysis 2. Figures.

Once I installed Origin (and I had a few problems there, too) I entered the product code from Amazon, and guess what? I had to download the game AGAIN, this time through Origin.

At this point, I've spent ~20 hours downloading and re-downloading the game three times. Origin installs the game (not where I want it installed, of course) and I can finally play the game. But not without an internet connection. The game requires me to run and log into Origin and also log into the in-game thing, even if all I want to do is play the (offline) singleplayer.

I should have spent the $5 extra and bought the game on Steam.

Amazon, please rewrite your download manager so it can re-download and replace corrupted segments of game data. EA... get rid of Origin. You aren't stopping folks who pirate your games, and you're making things a hassle for your paying, PAYING, customers. I hope developers stop making contracts with EA.

Oh, and the game itself? Exactly what I expected because I've played the game before. Fun, but it doesn't really belong in the Crysis franchise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glad I only paid $7 bucks for this crapware December 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Even if the 12 GIGABYTE download goes well, and even if the installation goes well, you then have to run the game. Guess what? It won't run because Amazon's down loader/installer doesn't install "Origin", the DRM manager that Crysis is hard-wired to require to run. Then you have to download Origin and install it (and all the well-publicized issues that come with it), which then forces a re-download of the entire game so it can install it on Origin's terms and where Origin wants to install it. Only then will this game work. But in MY case, the Origin app continually crashes and I cannot get it to run at all, let alone Crysis. I have yet to play Crysis 2. THIS, people, is why EA continually gets voted the worst/most hated company in America. It's because they earn it.

So, now that I've legitimately paid for this crapware, I am now going to download a cracked/hacked, pirated, copy of it that actually works.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks isn't everything December 19, 2012
Nice graphics. That's about it. Story is uninteresting, aliens are different from Crysis 1 with no explaination in the game except from the developer saying they evolved to be more humanlike, total BS. AI sucks, all they do is hide behind walls and pop up and shoot. Even the aliens do that. Well, it is "artificial" intelligence after all. There are only about 5 different types of enemies. No variety, repetitive, run duck shoot run duck shoot
