I'm finding it very hard to believe how the same people who are saying Crysis 2's multiplayer is lacking compared to the original are also not enjoying Homefront, which plays very similarly to the first Crysis' multiplayer. I'm not saying they're identical obviously, most notably the pacing of Homefront is much quicker, but the two games follow along the same "Battlefield 2 but more tactical and perhaps more quirky" style.

Oh, and don't knock on Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Brilliant game.

Same. Can only play it for 30 minutes at time, doesn't really keep me interested enough to keep at it, but I am looking forward to whenever some user content comes available and the sandbox editor. Wouldn't be surprised if someone recreates the island from the first game.

I am really enjoying it. The graphics are outstanding. They may not pushe the boundary like Crysis did when it was new, but they still look better then anything else I've seen before on the PC. Crysis still has amazing graphics, but Crysis 2 does edge it out a little. I do wish it had DriectX11 and all that goodness, but as it is right now, it still looks amazing.

However, the gameplay is the fun part. I haven't been able to put the game down. I can sink hours into that game completely unoticed. As far as the open world goes, it is way more open world then any COD game I've ever played, but it isn't nearly as open as Crysis was. A lot of battles themselves feature a very open world spanning several city blocks. You have multiple tactical options to take on firefights. You can often even completely sneak around a fight if you want to. When the game wants you to go to a certain area though, it does tend to funnel you down to the checkpoint. When it does funnel you down though, it doesn't do it with stupid invisible walls or debris piles, it uses things that actually fit within the game. You have roadblocks setup by the enimies. You might have to endter the subway for something, so obviously you wont have the freedom underground that you would above. You might have to go through a parking garage to get to your objective. The game always opens back up though once you get through these checkpoints. I think it works pretty well, I haven't felt constrained during my time with the game, I've felt I've had the freedom to do what I want. IMO the game is definatly worth a purchase.
