What is Crysis 2 like?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I was really serious on buying Crysis 2, but when I watched demo gameplay videos, I started to reconsider.

Crysis 1 is my favourite game of all time, and the things I liked most about it are the huge maps, many vehicles, along with the unique power struggle gameplay.

However, from what I've seen and heard about Crysis 2, there are a maximum of 12 players in a small map, with a few aircrafts, trucks, but no tanks. Is that really what it's like or is it very similar to the first one?

Crysis 1 was really boring. It had beautiful graphics but the story was bland. Crysis 2 actually has a story and flows. Crysis was nice and big. Crysis 2 is kinds of compact and it goes vertically a lot making it a lot of fun. To me they feel like totally different games, so they shouldn't be compared to each other. Each has it own fun.

Crysis 1 and 2 are completely different games. Gameplay is completely different. Controls are completely different. Possible playing styles are completely different. Story is completely different. Even the aliens are completely different.

Basically the only thing shared in common is the term "nanosuit"....because, yes, even the nanosuit is completely different in how and what it can do.

They need to bring back powerstruggle. I was very bent that there is no power struggle in Crysis 2.

It's okay. SP is impressive and takes a bit of time to complete it. MP isn't anything special and gets boring very quickly due to balance issues.

It's not worth $60 IMO. Buy it cheap from a CD key place or something. I got mine for $27.
