    This is not COD with an afterthought of a campaign, nor is it Far Cry 2 with its open expanses and sand-box gameplay. It's not a corridor shooter like Doom and it isn't Battlefield or Killzone 3. This is Crysis 2 – a magnificent first-person experience in its own right that stands out from the crowd by focusing on a campaign that is wholly engaging, at times highly challenging and often truly memorable.

    What can I say, finally the prettiest shooter arrives on consoles. Although you haven't all the opportunities from the first Crysis in terms of exploring a whole island, New York seems to be the right choice for action. The Pretty Apple gets all my attention and makes me forget the straight-forward gameplay. Not quite an innovation, but a really great shooter.

    Crytek has delivered an extraordinary shooter. The Nanosuit with all its functions is a real joy and it keeps gameplay exciting in both the long singleplayer and the fantastic multiplayer.

    Crysis 2 may not live up to every expectation, but its pleasant surprises make up for most of its shortcomings.

    A decent, if repetitive, shooter with incredible looks and set-pieces. [May 2011, p.78]

    Crysis 2 is an excellent game - one with dynamic combat, smooth controls, and slick visuals. But the unimpressive narrative and rampant glitches hold the overall experience back.

    Crysis 2 does little to create new material in the genre, though it cobbles together disparate gameplay elements that do create a level of interest that another modern Middle East liberation sim can't.

    I really don't know what the reviewers of this game have been smoking, but whatever it is I would love some.

    To compare this game to the likes of Killzone as far as graphics are concerned is a bold face lie. In all honesty this reminds me of a PS2 game, infact I would go as far as saying that Black on PS2 looked and played better.

    Really feel ripped off.

    Forget Call of Duty play Crysis2

    I think this is the best FPS that I have played. If you read a majority of these bad score, you see people comparing it to the first one. LastI think this is the best FPS that I have played. If you read a majority of these bad score, you see people comparing it to the first one. Last time I checked the first was a Pc game not a PS3 game. The game play is smooth I haven't experienced any lag or connection interruptions. This game has been perfect on it's release day, it took the devs at Treyarch 2 months to get camp of duty lag ops to this level in terms of errors. The graphics are great, not quite Uncharted, but close to Killzone. It doesn't have that weighty feel that killzone or BFBC2 has. There are many game types, if you don't like the whole cloaking thing there is a gametype that doesn't allow it. Best FPS HANDS down. Expand

    I've never played the first part and to be all honest even if i did i wouldn't compare, since the first part was only released on PC. Crysis 2I've never played the first part and to be all honest even if i did i wouldn't compare, since the first part was only released on PC. Crysis 2 was excellent however it does have a few drawbacks, the graphics were amazing but it did have some visual issues and a very predictable cliche storyline. what covered on this problem is that finally we get a proper stealth ninja fps, excellent terrain, great sound effects and game length was great unlike most Fps which has a maximum of 6 hours or so. As for the multi-player it was incredibly annoying, if you are a bad tempered do not attempt to play online considering most people just grab a corner with cloak on and a sniper rifle takin all the fun away. Overall its a great game thumbs up Expand

    Like many people i have played the previous Crysis titles and found the story, gameplay and graphics to be great, so of course i was excitedLike many people i have played the previous Crysis titles and found the story, gameplay and graphics to be great, so of course i was excited for Crysis 2 to be released. Overall Crysis 2 is a good game but not great, in terms of graphics its hard to find a more beautiful game but to be honest the graphics don't make up for some of the games short comings. Now don't get me wrong this game is good but in many ways i feel as if it has been vastly over-rated. When it comes to the gameplay at first it feels fresh and new but as you go on it starts to feel like any other FPS, some of Crysis unique elements do pick it up a bit but after a while i felt like it wasn't anything i hadn't seen before. When it comes to Multiplayer the game at times can become very annoying and at times can feel unbalanced, most of the maps are fairly maze like and at times you will find yourself wandering around just hunting people and not getting into the action. Overall this game is good and is worth a play but in my opinion it doesn't grip me as much as other FPS have in the past, if you are a person who doesn't play many FPS games then this may be a great game to start out with, the story is interesting (but can fall flat at times) and the overall structure is good.

    ok i too nearly dident buy the game over the botched demo but i m sure glad i bought it.the whole game is well thought out and graphics wiseok i too nearly dident buy the game over the botched demo but i m sure glad i bought it.the whole game is well thought out and graphics wise amazing.you can go in guns blazing but its much more fun to think your tactics through first the only game i can compare this to is the farcry series in its stealth but it is more faiirer than farcry more forgiving but a lot more fun.the customization of yor nano suit is a great addition great game all round but crytek..dont release a shoddy demo a week before a games release it will hurt your sales.
