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.
Crysis 2 is the sequel to one of the greatest PC first-person shooters yet created.

Additional features include: challenging AI enemies in the single player campaign, 12-player support online, new and improved upgradable Nanosuit 2 technology and more.
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.

Now nowhere on the start menu or desktop is a shortcut to start Crysis 2, I have no idea how to start the game. So I did "autorun" again. It gave me a choice to "play" but nothing happened.
So I went back to this Origin thing again; randomly clicking on it I found a window where it asked for a product key. I put the product key in that was taped on the inside of the CD case. Low and behold, a screen popped up saying... you guessed it... Downloading!
Seriously the installation instructions are the worst I've ever (not) seen. On the plus side, I did get a lot of errands and chores in while waiting for this game to install. If I ever get around to actually being able to play this game, I'll give it a review.
Well during this latest "installing" now I get an error: "The installer has encountered an unexpected error. The error code is 1638". A lookup tells me this is a conflict with the program already loaded. So I went to the Windows Control Panel to uninstall. "Uninstall Failed". Ok, now I can't even get rid of a program on my computer that doesn't work.
Now I've run "EASetup.exe" off the CD, this allowed me to uninstall the game. Now opening up "Origin" I can install from there. Low and Behold, I see: "Play"
Click on "Play"... downloading again... this time it's a patch. Waiting, the status bar is just sitting there about 80% done. (I think I'll go to the gym, see how it's doing when I get back.)
Save points - Well it isn't "Fallout" nor is it "Far Cry". This is one of these games that punishes you for playing. You cannot save your progress, so if you spend a couple of hours playing a level, and you die, you have to play that level all over again from the save point.
After the umpteenth time of getting killed and having to play the level over yet again I get discouraged... and I get bored. I had bookmarked Crysis 3 for eventual purchase, but have now deleted the bookmark. Really if I can't save my progress and am fated to play the same levels over ad-nauseum, I don't think it's worth my time, including the 2-hour installation process, to waste any more of my time.
I paid for the Crysis 2 game but got Crysis 2 Limited Edition. I tried activating the bonus material that comes with the Limited Edition, but to no avail. I think EA Games deleted this feature because everyone else is having the same problem. I could not activate initially the on-line game either. I read in the forums to change the original password and then try to activate again. This procedures works - I can now play multiplayer on-line. The multiplayer games are short but very fun. I don't think I like the long wait to set-up to play such a short round. I'm used to Battlefield 3 and Orange Box games.
I recommend buying this game. It's a no brainer for the Amazon price.
GTX570 (x2), Dominator 12GB, i7950, Rampage II Ext., 120Hz Monitor (60Hz 3D), Creative Fatality Pro, Logitech Z5500, Nvidia's 3D Vision (ver.1)
Now, after reading a lot negative reviews, I was a bit hesitant to purchase this game, I'm the type of gamer that likes eye candy, specially since I have spent a lot of cash building my PC. So after this went on sale, I said "why not?", and I'm glad I did.
I ran this game with the hardware listed above at 120Hz and holy crap! This game looks amazing. I maxed everything running DX11. At Ultra settings, everything looks outstanding. Sunlight and shadows had me quite impressed. Water effects are also top notch. I spent a lot of time looking at the amazing detail given to weapons, everything from textures to written instructions were carefully done and can be seen clearly. I did encounter some rough edges, but mostly during cinematic cut scenes. I never really cared for those, I mainly pain attention to the areas where I actually take part of. (gameplay)
Explosions show beautiful flames and particles, constant flames had a nice blue-ish to orange effect. I don't know what else to list, everything looks good. Dust, dirt, garbage, shadows, light,etc.
The default depth was pretty much balanced. I did increase it(F4) to look for ghosting and did see some; it wasn't as bad as L.A. Noire, but it was there. I'm glad to report though, that decreasing to about 75% took care of the ghosting. I saw some from time to time, but it wasn't bad at all. The brightness, just like with other titles, was dim and can't be adjusted on your monitor, only on the game's menu. You can always play with the contrast settings on you monitor's menu.
Deep base, sharp highs and balanced mids. I enjoyed every bit of every explosion. Weapon sounds are as solid as ever. I was able to differentiate each weapon by its sound. Something I like about the sound is how balanced the mids are; I had no need to lower it. I hate it when the voice overly done. I ran everything with Dolby Digital and was blown away.
Story: to sumarize and not to spoil. N.Y. is under attack, you are on a mission to rescue a scientist, get blown by the bad dudes, get rescued by a guy wearing the nano suit...the rest you'll have to see for yourself. I can say this though, I like the story and the different locations and enemies encountered. It is a nice mix of twists and turns. Some have said the story lacks exploration, which it does, but I didn't mind. Just like in Crysis 1, I never understood the point of it, if it didn't lead me to my objectives.
I'm glad they kept the original formula. No much to say, you all the good old modes. I had no prolem connecting to servers. I didn't experience any lag or chopiness.
If you have the hardware to run this game at its max settings, then you are in for a treat. The default download does not include the files required to run the game at its max (Ultra) or with DX11, at the options menu, you'll see an option to download these files. The game will automatically take you to the likn and start loading them. You will have to repeat this, the game does it one at time, with a total of 2 downloads. After it is installed, you should be able to run it.
