Crysis 2 is outstanding in almost every department, not least its visuals, which are the very best either PS3 or Xbox 360 has to offer right now. We’ve played the game on both consoles and found no noticeable difference between the two. Even PC gamers, if you’re a fan of the genre, buy this.

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 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 has shown what our home consoles are fully capable of with its gorgeous visuals and attention to environmental detail, such as trees swaying or embers floating from fires. I had my doubts of a console release, but I was proven wrong with their successful console version. After you finish the campaign, there are hours more fun to be had if you enjoy online competition. Overall, Crytek has given us a AAA game and left all gamers with a great experience with everything it had offered, whether it be campaign or online modes.

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.

Crysis 2 is een rollercoastershooter die je van tijd tot tijd laat uitstappen om de overige attracties te bezichtigen. Een intense en diepgaande schietervaring die dit jaar moeilijk te evenaren zal zijn.
We Got This Covered (Mar 23, 2011)
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.
GamingBolt (Mar 25, 2011)
Crysis 2 is a pretty long game and playing at normal difficulty will take about twelve to fifteen hours provided you are interested in collecting all the dog tags and flashbacks that the game throws at you. But the game lacks the Crysis feel due to a broken story and a boring protagonist. But if you look at the overall package, a solid multiplayer, the amazing Nanosuit and the best visuals that the world has seen, Crysis 2 is game that is worth the hype.
Just Push Start (Mar 22, 2011)
Crysis 2 is not a perfect game, but it definitely comes close. I expect it to be one of the best first person shooter games of 2011. The return of the Nanosuit is what first person shooter fans have been waiting for, especially now that PS3 and Xbox 360 owners can experience it. The amazing single player and the addictive online portion of Crysis 2 will surely give everyone plenty of hours to play through. Crysis 2 still manages to have the most breathtaking visuals I’ve seen this year on the consoles. If you’re currently playing Killzone 3 or Black Ops, do yourself a favor and forget about those games and play Crysis 2 instead.

When it's all said and done, however, Crysis 2 is still a very good game. The nanosuit's countless possibilities help keep the gameplay feel fresh throughout. Though Crysis 2 is more linear than -and ultimately not as good as- its acclaimed predecessor, it can still lay claim to the title of best shooter of 2011 thusfar. Whether it can also remain on top, is a whole different matter.
GameSpot (Mar 24, 2011)
Crysis was a superb game, and it wasn't so just because of the astounding technology that brought it to life. Crysis 2 doesn't make as strong of a mark, but it comes close, and in a sea of me-too shooters, it feels unique and offers an exciting journey that's as much your own making as that of the developer. The wow factor is undercut by some AI and multiplayer oddities. But while the lows are inescapable, the highs are intense, and the more you play, the more extraordinary they become. If you give this sequel a little patience, it will bombard you with the thrills you came seeking.

Es ist eine Sache, nach einem sehr guten Spiel einen guten Nachfolger abzuliefern, der einfach den bewährten Fußstapfen folgt. Es ist eine ganz andere, den Mut zu haben, unnötige Zöpfe abzuschneiden und damit zu riskieren, alte Fans zu verschrecken. Crytek hatte diesen Mut: Das Szenario ist brandneu, der Nanoanzug ist sinnvoll entschlackt, Fahrzeuge spielen so gut wie keine Rolle mehr, genauso wenig wie Koreaner. Resultat: Ein nochmals besseres Spiel! Höchst bemerkenswert finde ich, dass die Kampagne nicht nur für heutige Verhältnisse sehr lang ist (um die zwölf Stunden), sondern dass man dabei auch keine Minute Langeweile erfährt - denkt man an die öde Mitte bei CoD: Black Ops zurück, weiß man die Leistung Cryteks umso mehr zu schätzen.

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.

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.
Gamekult (Apr 01, 2011)
C'est certain, Crysis 2 ne laissera pas une empreinte aussi forte que son aîné, mais il joue néanmoins sa partition de blockbuster avec beaucoup d'aplomb. Visuellement très réussi, particulièrement sur PC, il propose une action intense et dynamique, bien servie par un gameplay et un level design bien plus ouverts et variés que la moyenne des FPS modernes. Hélas, si son scénario un peu brouillon et sa mise en scène assez bateau, mais diablement envahissante, tirent le jeu vers le bas, tout comme les errements parfois coupables de l'I.A., c'est surtout l'édulcoration assez drastique de l'esprit du premier Crysis qui déçoit dans cette suite. Plus consensuel, moins rentre-dedans, Crysis 2 ne met pas la claque qu'on était en droit d'attendre ; et malgré la qualité intrinsèque du titre, on en ressort forcément un peu déçu.

Alien-invasion adventure is hampered by Hollywood cliches.
