Crysis 2 review


My thoughts on Crysis 2


Just started playing Crysis 2 yesterday and I'm somehow disappointed.
First a few things I like:
Well the graphics, design and environment are just amazing (most of the time).
Yeah that's about it.
What I dislike:
The story and the missions are just retarded and sometimes it smells like Call of Duty - press F to pick up this, press win to win the game. You don't even have to listen to anyone talking to you, just open your new vision, which explains you where to go and what to do. I'm sure EA believes its customers only have an average IQ of 70 or something. (We all know it's not the first game EA raped after the first part was a success - see my Dragon Age 2 review)
Well at least I found 2-3 situations where you actually could think for yourself and for example kick a car on some enemys to do it the fast way - but that's it.
As said the graphics are breathtaking once more.. but there are a few flaws. You can only switch your graphics to three different modes (yeah EA thinks you're even to dumb for that). I'm not sure if it's me and/or my PC but on 'hardcore' graphics-mode the motion blur and bloom is just way to much. The motion blur paints somekind of shadow around objects and npcs and the bloom makes even trash shine like the sun. But I have to admit sometimes I almost thought I was watching CGI and not playing a game.
So if mindless shooting and lots of graphics is enough for you, go get it.
Well I'm going to play some more (even though it gets boring after one hour), maybe I'll find something to add in my review.

  1. Crysis > Crysis 2. Crysis 2 graphics are a joke in comparison. The original's gameplay and story were immersive. It's a shame they strayed so far from the original game in order to cater to console gamers. Hopefully Battlefield 3 won't let me down.

  4. Crysis has the best GFX ever!! Besides that it's not better than other FPS if you ask me!

  5. Yeah basically it's a console port to the pc. Graphics aren't that good, the story is weak, and the gamplay is incredibly rigid and linear. Average shooter that panders to the 12 year old masses.

  12. Crysis 2 looks good and all but Crysis 1 really was better. It seems to have been dumbed down a bit, at least in regards to the graphics, it doesn't even take a beast of a machine to run anymore.

  20. When it comes to games, I far prefer immersion over the visual appearance. Thanks for the warning. I won't drop 60 bucks or whatever on this game.

    Love your down-to-earth/to-the-point reviewing style.

  23. You are absolutely right. Crytek makes good engines. Gameplay? not so much...

    AntwortenLöschen
  31. yeah, i don't take graphics into much account in appreciating a game. so long as they are bearable, my imagination can take care of some of that. I place more importance on gameplay and such

    AntwortenLöschen
