A good shooter

The sequel to Crysis is a different game in terms of setting. The lush island vegetation is replaced by the concrete jungle. Set in New York City, the protagonist "Alcatraz" is let loose in an almost empty city ruled by martial law, due to an alien infestation. In the possession of a Nanosuit 2.0 given to him by "Prophet", a returning character from the first game, "Alcatraz" is being hunt by CryNet Systems, a military group which is occupying the city.

In terms of gameplay the nanosuit is still the main differentiating element of this franchise, although the usage of the suit was simplified in contrast to the previous games. It allows for a direct approach to enemies, with run-and-gun tactics, or using the cloak for a more stealthy approach. The setpieces are interesting, giving a CoD feel to the gameplay, but lacking the intensity of the latter. The game feels more linear than its predecessors, mainly because the action is located in New York City, where you walk in the streets or inside the buildings, in a more confined environment. The island in Crysis and Crysis Warhead was not open to exploration but felt less "claustrophobic". In the graphics department all went well, especially after the Hi-res Texture Pack and DX11 patch. The game looks very good, although not as spectacular as the firt one, mainly because of the tropical setting and lush vegetation.

All in all its a fun game with great moments.
