Ok, but not as good as the hype made itKalmado | Nov. 17, 2013 | See all Kalmado's reviews »
A few hours in I see this game being a decent fps and action game. It's graphics are lush and there seems to be a lot going on. Unfortunately at the end of the day it's another FPS. I found the intro and how you wear the suit somewhat annoying and bland. The intro CS was your typical "something is happening and the armed forces are called in" blah blah. nothing unique or interesting. I found myself not caring about the character or why some doctor was blabbing in my ear to go this way and that. This title left me with zero interest to pick up Crysis 3. I have not tried multi player, but I'm sure it's Crytek's version of CoD.
Better than Expectednico7 | Nov. 3, 2013 | See all nico7's reviews »
I bought Crysis 2 in a bundle and did not think it was going to be that good. I had always hear of the Crysis series but I figured it was more about graphics than gameplay or story.
The story was good, but also follows the same basic alien invasion story formula that's been popular since Halo Combat Evolved. Nothing revolutionary here. I haven't played the first game but I assume it picks up where Crysis left off. You are a soldier wearing an advanced nanosuit with varying abilities. For the story, the suit evolves to incorporate alien DNA into the system, but for the gameplay its contributes nothing. As you fight your way through human and alien foes, you come to discover over time what this war is all about.
Graphics are superb. If you have a decent gaming rig and turn everything on ultra you'll experience some very nice visuals. I run a fx6100, 8gig corsair 1333, amd 7950, 120gig ssd, and get 55-60 fps on the regular, with occasional drops under heavy particles or vegetation.
Gameplay is fun. You have the option to play it stealth are frontal assault style. The suit will give you strategical options in every circumstance. I wasn't that impressed with the weapons. Most of them are too weak. I used 2 for basically the whole game.
I would recommend a solid playthrough. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Much better than the first onealfrodo22 | Oct. 17, 2013 | See all alfrodo22's reviews »
The first Crysis was monumental in terms of graphics. That is, if your PC could handle them and if they didn't crap out. I had tons of issues with the first one to the point where the game became unplayable. Couple that with the frustration of not knowing how to destroy tanks for a long time and I pretty much despised the first one.
Thankfully, Crysis 2 is far more stable and doesn't have so much guesswork involved. The basic game mechanics are the same, you have mission objectives and follow the mini map which advances the story. You still have the cryosuit that gives you different abilities like jumping high, cloaking, or having extra armor. Cloaking is the most useful and entertaining. I felt like it didn't work that great in the first one but in this one the A.I. is more forgiving (which also makes it a little easier). Of course, you have the flexibility to go guns-a-blazing if you want, or you can go stealthy. There are more weapons and even a new skill set that you can unlock as the campaign advances.
The enemies are fun to fight and the landscapes are quite varied. The storyline starts off pretty slow but does get better. Some of the battles are quite epic and the multiplayer has a lot to offer as well. Overall this is a great title that I feel is even better than the first.
Kinda different from the first one, but good.oliveretsitty | Oct. 11, 2013 | See all oliveretsitty's reviews »
After finishing the first Crysis, I wanted more! Thus leading me the buy Crysis 2. The graphics in this game are impressive. There are moments in the game where I just sit back and admire the scenery. The music for this game is great too. One thing I did not like was how the levels were so linear and small compared to the first game. Also I didn't like how the armor/cloak controls were set up. They changed those controls from Crysis 1, possibly to accommodate the console players??? Anyway, it took some time to adjust. Other than those flaws, I liked the story and I am looking forward to the next one.

Crysis 2 expands on the fantastic formula that Crysis built upon and turned out a fantastic game. Crytek once again made another beautifully stunning game , this time set in New York. Its certainly a change from the island of the first game but Crytek pulled it off rather nicely. The story is rather long, takes about 15 or so hours but it can get tedius and makes you want to just finish the game as quickly as possible. Twists and turns do happen and its not a bad story but the problem is it does feel like it drags on longer than it should. Crysis 2 introduced a much better online multiplayer portion to the game and it worked rather well in the small( yet fairly big) cramped levels mixed in with fast paced action of the nano suits. I'd recommend getting all 3 games for sure , its fun to see the progression each game made upon the last, you certainly wont be disappointed
