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.

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.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I will just come right out and say it: Crysis 2 is terrible and typifies everything wrong with PC gaming today. I say this as a huge fan of the original Crysis and Crysis Warhead, which were two of my favorite games. In fact, I just played them both over the weekend on Delta difficulty in preparation for Crysis 2. Despite selling over three million units of the original Crysis on PC, Crysis 2 was clearly developed for consoles first and PC second. This review assumes that you played and enjoyed the original Crysis, and may not be as useful to someone unfamiliar with the series.

The review system here includes two GTX 480 in SLI, a i7 920 @ 4.1 ghz, and a 2560x1600 monitor.

The graphics were one of the main strengths of the original game, and Crysis 2 has turned them into a weakness. There are NO configuration options, just preset settings, and you can only choose from "High," "Very High," and "Extreme." Unfortunately, Extreme looks significantly worse than Crysis and Warhead. Protip for Crytek: calling your graphics "extreme" doesn't make them look any better. As far as I can tell there is no way to force Anti-Aliasing on, and instead Crysis 2 uses its own form of edge blurring that looks terrible compared to true AA. The edge AA was fine in Crysis because the vegetation benefited from it more than traditional AA and it provided a performance boost, but Crysis 2 consists of mostly buildings and straight edges that require traditional AA to look their best.

There are three main pillars to the graphical failings.

----The textures are a major downgrade. It's true that the original Crysis had the occasional blurry rock texture, but most of them were flat out amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Mostly Linear Shooter... Bad Crysis April 17, 2011
By Axle F.
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a single player only review... I couldn't care less about multi-player.

I am going to try to rate this as a stand-alone game because comparing it to the others is like comparing "The Godfather" to "The Godfather 3" There is no comparison. The first ones were better in every way, save for maybe the musical score.

I am a fan of the first two games in the series, Crysis and Crysis:Warhead, the amount of vehicles and a totally open world and all manner of community support and mod development, not forgetting to mention that the first game was, in my opinion, EPIC. It took me a full week worth of time to beat them and I loved them... Still do. It was quite fun with the amount of things you could do. Nothing beat getting to jump out of the water in stealth mode and then go into maximum power mode and punch bad guys, literally LAUNCHING them off cliffs or 80 feet into the air or against a fully destructible seaside shack building... Or shooting out the front tire of a hummer full of bad guys bearing down on you and causing it to flip and roll throwing everyone out of it... Head shots were so very satisfying... If I shot a guy in the leg, he would limp. The A.I. was amazing. The graphics are amazing, still, and the first two games are STILL used as benchmarks for high-end PCs. It was what a PC game should be, hardcore mouse and keyboard WITH optional, and flawless support for a PC Xbox-360 controller for the more laid back gamers... Made for the PC and THEN ported to the lesser console systems.

Before I rant here... I'll say this is a surprisingly good shooter among the offers up around the same time of its release. I cannot say much anything bad if rating it as a stand-alone game with no previous entries.... So it is all kinds of awesome....

2.0 out of 5 stars a step back for PC gaming and the original Crysis March 23, 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
A Disappointment and a step back for PC gaming and the original Crysis. All hemmed in like Darksiders, no more free roaming, no more Gamesaves anywhere, it is now a console game by EA.

My beef is not on the graphics but the gameplay.

What is wrong with 'Consolitis'?
The linearity. This game now runs on Rails.
You might as well rename it Time-Crysis. Shoot off-screen or aim to screen-edges to reload. What next EA? Insert quarters for time extensions?

There are also convenient Ammo Dumps for you. Gone are when the Artificial Intelligence has enemies ganging up to flush you out. Their grenade tosses? LOL. Every obstacle shielding you is blast-proof.

They have watered down the A-Grade Crysis, peeled off the brand and slapped it on another bottle. An inferior product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what it used to be... March 24, 2011
By Bones
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
In my humble opinion, the original Crysis to this day remains one of the best FPS of all time for so many reasons that I couldn't possibly list them all. There are some obvious ones, graphics, realistic game-play, enemy A.I., lush environments, non-linearity, destructible environments, etc. But one of the things that's not so obvious is the following: Most video games that I can think of start one off at the very bottom; little to no items, weapons, upgrades, abilities, etc., etc. You basically have to build your character from the ground up and near the end of the game you become this real bad @ss. The original Crysis completely shattered this formula. In that game, you started off with everything on the nano suit unlocked, fully powered, and ready for immediate use. In other words, you were a complete bad @ss right from the beginning.

In the first couple of levels no one has a real chance against you. You really are completely superior to anything the game throws your way; and this makes total sense because that's what the nano suit is for, to make you superior in every way to your enemies. And this is not to say the game was easy, because it wasn't. It just meant that if you used your brain and all of the resources at your disposal, you were virtually invincible because again, that's what the nano suit is all about. I recall climbing into the back of a jeep and taking control of a chain gun and attempting to mow down some enemies when all of a sudden a tall palm tree realistically falls down and instantly kills some of the enemies I had missed. I soon realized that I HAD unintentionally caused this to happen because my gun fire caused the tree to fall, and as a gamer, this was a MIND BLOWING moment that cannot be replicated in Crysis 2.
