Crysis 2 is a perfect first person shooter from start to finish. Everything about this game is the best in it’s class. The ease, utility and versatility of the Nanosuit 2.0 and it’s ability to make you feel nearly indestructible when you hit a perfect stride is the most deliciously satisfying thing in the world, and the improvements they have made over the first two games in that department are mile wide gains. Then you have the spectacular Cryengine 3 that has rendered the most realistic warzone I have ever seen on a console, period. Top that off with Richard Morgan’s finely crafted and surprisingly nuanced story and you have the best first person shooter of a generation. However, of special note is the fact that the console versions of this game are a lot buggier than the PC release.

Crysis 2 est une vitrine technique. Force est de constater que les petits gars de chez Crytek ont certes une grande gueule mais des épaules suffisamment larges pour assumer leurs prétentions. Le jeu est à tomber par terre et certains passages vous cloueront au siège. Crysis 2 arrive à apporter un vent nouveau, nerveux dans le paysage pourtant de plus en plus formaté du FPS et ce grâce aux capacités uniques de votre personnage. Solide en solo avec une aventure longue d’une douzaine d’heures (ce qui est de plus en plus rare), il arrive aussi à être à la hauteur avec son multi et ce grâce à un code réseau stable, des cartes superbes et ses capacités pour le moins jouissives. Il se glisse sans mal comme l’un des meilleurs FPS sorti sur consoles HD et ce n’est pas une mince affaire.

Crysis 2 is an excellent FPS for those looking for something a little different in their multiplayer options or looking for a robust single-player campaign. In a year that will see the release of a new Battlefield and a new Call of Duty, Crysis 2 will remain in my console for months to come.

Crysis 2 is a sterling follow-up to the benchmark setting original from Crytek, boasting an epic campaign in terms of scenarios and mayhem, and a multiplayer arena that is satisfying as long as you can get over the anti-newbie barrier. Perhaps we expected more of the plot itself from Morgan, but you can’t knock the campaign in terms of sheer scale, ambition and flair.

Crysis 2's shiny graphics are nice and all, but the Nanosuit is the true star of the show. Offering a true sense of power rarely seen in modern shooters, it helps to make this one of the most exciting games of the year.

Beautiful games are often undercut by repetitive campaigns and uninspired gameplay. Not so here. Crysis 2 is not only a looker, it’s also a damn fine game to boot. The engaging multiplayer compliments a singleplayer campaign that whisks you on a whirlwind tour of a ravaged New York. It might be less open-ended than its forebear, but it’s every bit the thrill-ride that made Crytek a household name and Crysis 2 a now likely frontrunner for action game of the year.

We Got This Covered
Whatever system you buy it on, Crysis 2 features the best graphics in video games right now, being completely cutting edge. But it uses it like few games out there do, by making the action onscreen even more eye-popping than it already is, further enhancing it into a experience like no other. Whether your battling in Central Park, or beside remains of the Statue of Liberty, the single-player campaign is long and remains fresh and challenging from start to finish. The story is brain-dead and ends like all shooters do these days, but it has too many incredible encounters and sequences that make it memorable. Crysis 2 is the ultimate package that delivers on every front: audio, visual, gameplay and lasting appeal. It should be played by everyone who loves action done extremely well, no matter the fact that it’s a first person shooter. It deserves to be in your collection immediately.

Kaum hat das Spiel begonnen, klappt euch auch schon die Kinnlade herunter. Effektvoll und actiongeladen, so präsentiert sich Crysis 2 von der ersten bis zur letzten Sekunde. Dabei kann vor allem die Umsetzung des Nanosuit 2.0 in einer wundervollen Grafikpracht vollends überzeugen. Dank der wunderbaren akustischen Umsetzung, der tollen Musikuntermalung und der vorbildlichen deutschen Synchronisation werden alle Sinne bestens bedient. Für Langzeitmotivation sorgen haufenweise erspielbare Extras, unterschiedliche Schwierigkeitsgrade, Sammelobjekte und vieles mehr. Wer die Kampagne zu 100% beenden will, der muss schon einige Stunden investieren. Für das erstmalige Durchspielen benötigen normale Spieler um die neun bis zehn Stunden. Geübte Spieler unter euch, sollten (wie immer) gleich auf dem höchsten Schwierigkeitsgrad losmarschieren. Sicher hat auch ein Crysis 2 seine Aussetzer und so mancher Fehler ist manchmal schon extrem verwunderlich.

Crysis 2, like it predecessor has set the graphical benchmark yet again. Crytek may not have revolutionized the first person shooter genre with this game. The story may be average at best. However, one cannot deny both the superb visuals and the overall, great presentation as Cry Engine 3 breaks boundaries in gaming opening doors for other games to do amazing things. It will give you a well rounded gaming experience, with enough challenge and unlockables to keep you entertained. Whether you buy it immediately, or wait for it to go on sale, at some point, it would be wise to add Crysis 2 to your collection.

Flawed yet beautiful, Crysis 2 is an excellent singleplayer experience. Combined with multiplayer created by the team formerly known as Free Radical, it’s a tantalizing package for fans of the genre, and not one that should be missed. Crysis 2 walks so close to FPS perfection that at times its flaws seem all the more pronounced, but surely this is truly testament to its strengths.

Crysis 2 has some of the best gameplay that you’re likely to come across for a long time. Sharp controls and well-tuned suit mechanics make it an enjoyable experience and one you’re unlikely to forget. If you can get through the first few hours and really get into it, Crysis 2 is worth every second of your time. The multiplayer is challenging and fun, the campaign will keep you around for a decent amount of time, and with stuff to collect throughout the levels it definitely has replay value. While it’s not without its flaws, it’s one of the best first person shooters to appear in a long time and can easily hold its own against the bigger franchises that dominate the gaming world.

Crysis 2 is a stunning looking game that is only really let down by a poor storyline. You might love the fact that the entire game is a shooting gallery for you to test the upgradable nano-suit, but you could just as easily hate it because it uses the suit for the bulk of the narrative. However, any fan of the genre (especially Call of Duty fans) will love the multiplayer. The nano-suit truly shines online, allowing for multiple play-styles. Whether you utilise the stealth cloaking and pick people off quietly, or you fire up the power armour and run and gun people to death, Crysis 2 is a genuine new contender in the online first person shooter market, and one that requires other developers stand up and take notice.

Crysis 2 has a few problems but on the whole it’s the most solid first person shooter that has come out so far this year. The game if anything is absolutely gorgeous but that’s not the entire package has. The sci-fi atmosphere is well used to give you something you won’t find in your runoff the mill game in the genre. The single player will last for several hours and the multiplayer will go on for much more than that. While I didn’t really fall in love with the original Crysis I feel differently about Crysis 2 giving it a wholehearted thumbs up.

On sent Crytek peu à son aise dans l'exercice du FPS linéaire et scénarisé. Entre maladresses, IA parfois bancale et mise en scène à la fois spectaculaire mais peu immersive, Crysis 2 sort tout de même son épingle du jeu en proposant des combats dynamiques et nerveux. En revanche, oubliez l'infiltration. Par ailleurs, après une campagne solo bien remplie, le mode multi saura prolonger l'investissement.
