A real surprise.

The first time I played the first crysis was in 2009. I truly liked the game but I felt it was nothing special. It was essentially a tech demo of Crytek's cryengine. The gameplay was lacking and most of the time I would just stop and look at the graphics. It wasn't perfect but it was special in its own way. Because of this I never really considered buying Crysis 2 and I didn't. I was only able to play crysis 2 through borrowing my classmates copy in exchange for one of my games. I never expected Crysis 2 to be anything more than COD on steroids or a linear Crysis 1. I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was wrong. Yes there is nothing new in this game, but how they combined all of these elements together is truly a work of art. There just is something about being an overpowered mess of a soldier that makes this game so great. Sneaking around the Ceph as well as the Cell, being able to interact with almost everything in the world, and being a one man army while your enemies keep sending wave after wave of soldiers it's truly one unique experience. It's not all good though the story is forgettable and a lot of the suit upgrades are useless but all of the bad things in this game does little to nothing in terms of the gameplay. All good things must come to an end and I will eventually return Crysis 2 to my friend, but the experience will stay forever. I only have one regret from this amazing experience. Not being able to play multiplayer since it seems a lot of the people have abandoned this game at least for the PS3. Hopefully, Crytek's next venture will have even deeper game mechanics, and a better multiplayer community. Nevertheless, great game I'd gladly recommend it to anyone.

    Crysis 2 is a confused game because I'm not sure it knows what type of game it ultimately wants to be. It plays like a FPS, but it succeeds more when it's played as a stealth game à la Metal Gear Solid. Granted, you have a nano suit that gives you augmented abilities like increased strength and armor. But those abilities are almost rendered moot considering you can often avoid combat all together with the cloaking ability that makes you invisible for a brief period of time (but which you can inc...

    the Call of Crysis 0

    I rented Crysis 2 because the cryo-suit on the box caught my eye. Very cool design. It reminded me of call of duty as well but with better graphics. The trees gently blowing in the wind with detailed shadows actually detracted from the game because the landscape was very busy and hard to look for enemies. The tutorial/menu font was RIDICLOUSLY small and that frustrated me because there was important info that I needed to see. Also, the raspy optimus prime voice doesn't need to say "cloak engaged...
