Beatiful graphics

4

Crysis 2 might be the most beatiful game on consoles and makes you wonder why other games looks so rubbish in comparison. It's also solid FPS title, but story is a bit flaky. Nanosuit gives more strategic options and makes the game refershingly different from other FPS games. This is a must buy even if you don't normally play shooting games. Crysis 2 is a milestone in console gaming!

Nice game

4

Such a nice game. The graphics are splendid and even when the missions are so lineal, there are many ways to go through them. The game took a week to get to Spain, as usual, and it all was perfect, as usual. For this price, I highly reccomend to buy it!

Learn to be the weapon!

4

If you are used to playing Call Of Duty games you may need time to adjust to Crysis 2. If you give it some time you will notice how much better it is. Don't rush, learn to use your stealth techniques and armour. The graphics are great. Hugely recommended!

Its a brilliant game that i would reccomend to any gamer.

Solid shooter with moments of brilliance and mediocrity

Crysis 2, the latest title from Crytek, is a sequel to a well-received PC exclusive Crysis. Unlike the original, Crysis 2 takes place in an urban environment, in a destroyed New York City to be precise, where a deadly virus has infected most of the population. The story sure offers some twists and turns along the way, but unforutnately ends up being just another forgettable sci-fi tale, full of clichés. The same can also be said for the game itself. It starts out promising and it is a blast to play in the opening few hours, but after the aliens become the main focus, the whole experience starts to feel just like any other sci-fi shooter. On the other hand, Crysis 2 is a piece of art from the technical standpoint. The graphics are, for the most part, amazing and undoubtebly something Xbox 360 hasn't run before. I've noticed some frame drops and graphic glitches here and there, but nothing drastic. The sound and the voice acting are also pretty good. So is the gameplay, even though the AI can be incredibly stupid at times and the fact that the gunfights with aliens are not nearly as exciting as with the troopers. Besides a pretty good singleplayer, there is also a nice selection of different multiplayer modes, but to be perfectly honest the game plays way too much like a Call of Duty title in that department. Crysis 2 is without a doubt fantastic to look at and incredibly fun to play where the developers did the things right. Unfortunately there is a lot of unused potential in it, but being a little objective the game doesn't deserve anything less than a four-star rating.

Crytek has done it again

4

This time console players get to join in on the fun aswell. Crysis 2 is a must have for any fan of the shooter-genre. The singleplayer campaign is meaty and lengthy (about 12h) compared to most other shooters. The environments are gorgeous, huge and open which allow for creative gameplay combined with the abilities of the nano-suit. Easily one of the best looking games on the xbox 360. When you're bored with the singleplayer there's always the multiplayer which i'd describe as a fun mix of CoD Black ops and Halo Reach.

Masterpiece

5

First when I first saw the Crysis 2 trailer I was amazed. You just can not compare this game to any other game at the moment, nothing beats crysis. This game also received multiple awards from E3. Never seen such graphics in a console ever before, the game uses crytek's own cryengine 3, it's even better than the usual Unreal engine used by most of the games nowadays. The game itself is ridiculously well designed, the amount of detail put into the war scenarios,light dynamics,torn apart buildings, weapons,the very good ambience and background music,etc. is just amazing. The overall sound of the game is even with the graphics, the sound is very memorazible and unique. For e.g.: if you fire a weapon you will feel like you're holding it in real life. The game also supports 3D wich I had the opportunity to experience first hand. Probably the first new-age game to support full 3D. The single-player mode storyline is one of the best around: you're a marine, but not just an ordinary one, somehow you got the nanosuit. A powerfull suit that covers your entire body wich gives you extra ressistance and strenght or a more stealthy mode wich activates camouflage. You can also jump very high and sprint faster than normal human beings. Also one of the modes present in the suit is the VISOR mode, where you can tag places to go or tag enemies so you don't lose track of them. You can also use it to zoom in across the battlefield and gain a tactical advantage over anybody around or activate the nanovision, some sort of thermal vision wich allows you to see things with heat (enemies,fire,explosions). On the first game you're in an island with koreans, but this time the game takes you to New York, beautifully recreated with the invasion of the Ceph, a powerfull alien race that wants to harvest humanity. The Multiplayer mode features 6 game modes, 50 ranks and 100+ unlockables such as dog tags,skill assessments (also known as "perks" the common term used in some FPS games), weapons, attachments, and so on... You can rank up pretty easily and it doesn't take too long to get out of the "newbie" section gametypes. The way Crytek created this game is art. Crysis requires both brain and weapon skills to be sucessfull, crysis is indeed a true masterpiece.

Crysis 2 quick review

5

People are always asking me if Cryis is like A) Call of Duty B) Battlefield or C) Halo. But Crysis is a very unique game in its own right. First off the story is interesting and well scripted and is overall very god fun to play through. The way you can approach each mission is always left to you so you can play however you like. The campaign is also a decent lengh and will probably provide you with 10-15 hours of play which is good going considering most shooters only get you 5-7 hours. The graphics and audio in Cryis are simply amazing. The environments look really supurb and crisp and the game makes great use of bright colours and light even in the ruined New York City. The sound of the guns firing and the city being destroyed around you all sound very realistic and immersive. The sound track was composed by Hans Zimmer (Gladiator and MW2 soundtracks) and is a delight to listen to when playing the game. 3D is also supported. Multiplayer is also good fun. While not as easy to play as Call of Duty, the way the Nanosuit is used in the multiplayer makes for a really unique and dynamic online experience. Crysis has that 'one more go' appeal that i always value in an online shooter. The matchmaking is smooth and fast but it can sometimes be hard to get a game in one of the lesser played game modes Overall Crysis 2 is a fantastic game and im having a great time with it. If you're bored with Black Ops(!) or are looking for an interesting campaign to play through (or both) then this is the game for you. The graphics and sound are brilliant and the multiplayer is freash and new. This should not be missed
