Crysis 2 Review



Graphics

Real-time gameplay graphics
To start off, the graphics on this game are nuts. Crysis 2 has the best graphics out of any game on the market right now, besides maybe the first one. The graphics for the first Crysis that came out a few years ago were so good, that many people didn't have a good enough computer to even play it. Because the graphics were so good on the first one, they didn't even improve the graphics on the second one, but they actually dimmed down the graphics a little to allow more people to be able to run the game on their computers. The settings are a simpler now, with the only graphics option being "Hardcore", "Gamer", or "Advanced". The first Crysis was not available on the Xbox, but Crysis 2 is. The graphics on the Xbox are not as good as it would be than if you were to play it on a PC, but they are still great and you will not be disappointed with the console version.







Gameplay

The Nanosuit in stealth mode
Along with the amazing graphics of the game, it is coupled with some great game-play. In the Campaign mode, before you advance to an area full of enemies, you have points marked on your HUD with tactical options such as flank, infiltrate, avoid, etc. Your character's Nanosuit gives you the ability to throw heavy objects, run super fast, go invisible in stealth mode, increase your damage threshold in armor mode, and see enemies with a long range thermal vision in Nanovision mode. All these functions tax your Nanosuit's battery though, and it can drain it quickly. The good thing is that your battery recharges very quickly though. The storyline is approximately 4-6 hours long, which is a decent length, but it could be a little longer. Crysis 2 has a variety of customization, with many different weapons, attachments, and abilities to choose from that you can use to beat the enemy. Although the storyline is great, the multi-player is where you will be spending most of your hours smashing other players. Crytek has made a way to almost completely abolish camping, which is awesome. If you are killed by a camper, you can return to where you died in stealth mode, giving you a better time to react than the camper would have. Also, if you are trying to collect killstreaks, you must pick up your fallen foe's dogtags to increase your killstreak count. This game is overall amazing and I would definitely recommend it. Crysis 2 is probably currently the best FPS that is out today and if you buy this game, you will not be disappointed.

  7. Graphics are crazy looking as expected. Were the graphics on Crysis (1) really better than on Crysis 2? That doesn't make much sense.

  38. Great rewiev, this game was great but the first one is better.

  39. The game overall didn't seem as good as the first. Of course, It's pretty much like 89/100 and the first is 91/100. By no means was it a bad game.

    Great read though, keep up the good work.
