While it may not be a snadbox, it surely is NOT a linear shooter. basically this is what they do. the make a map (pretty big) and they put alot of enemies in it and ask you to clear them out. You can do this rambo style or solid snake style. Its all up to you (of course certain scenarios ask you to go full force action, but for the most part you play how you want)
Vertical. the first crysis offered huge flat maps, these maps are slightly smaller but there is Alot of verticality in all of them. You will be fighting on roofs and office buildings quite alot but there are more interesting locations i won't spoil.
And it looks absolutely AMAZING! all this talk about hurp derp Dx9, you know what, You won't even notice it the game is just stellar. The best looking game i've ever played. the lighting and the shear amount of stuff happening in every scene (buildings falling, tons of MPC's firing their weapons, helicopters in the air and the Ceph ships. there is just way more stuff going on in this game. I won't lie, the textures did take a backseat, but unless your looking at newspapers and leaves in the game (why would you do that when you have blood thirsty aliens on your A$$) you won't notice/care because while they are not excellent they are far from Bad.
i have yet to play the multiplayer, The single player has taken up most of my day today and i'm still not finished lol (could have beat homefront twice in the time its taken me soo far)
Do i recommend it? Hell yeah! don't let the people brainwash you into thinking this game looks bad, because they clearly have not played it.

This 100%. Game is awesome, only complaint is no quick save so if you die before getting to a checkpoint, you'll have to replay, but, its a minor thing IMO. You don't need DX11 to enjoy a game, Crysis 2 using DX9 looks better than the majority of titles including DX11 ones
