I agree with you (for once....shocking). I refuse to shell out even $0.50 for this pathetic excuse of a console port. Crysis built its name up on graphics and superior sandbox style gameplay. It wasn't even just Crysis either. Look at Far Cry, and Crysis Warhead. All 3 of those are GREAT games (still top sellers today even), and had the graphics to push the limits of hardware for YEARS AFTER their release.

This....is just a pathetic COD / Halo knockoff console port with DX9 graphics and poor textures.

We need to add a limit to amount of threads which title can have the word Crysis 2 in. It's worse than snipers in BC2

Well the bottom line is that from a tech perspective, this game is not representative of what we've come to expect from Crytek. That developer usually is at the cutting edge of graphics technology and many who were looking for a new game that would drop their jaws and fry their GPUs like the original Crysis were let down.

And being asked to pay $60 for a product that is, in an important way, less than many were expecting, is hard to stomach.

That being said, a lot of the ire directed at Crytek and EA is because of terrible, terrible marketing decisions. The PC demo was the start of it. With people already suspecting that the PC would NOT be the lead platform for Crysis 2, releasing a PC demo without DX11 or advanced graphics options and with a start menu which prompted players to "Press Start" was an awful decision. So much of the negativity towards this game is because of players' perception that it was a console port, regardless of whether or not it actually was.

They also shot themselves in the foot by releasing the game too early. For a $60 game, all of the troubles that people are having with multi-GPU setups are inexcusable. As a consumer product, Crysis 2 is incomplete at best. I'm sure many of you have seen the Linus Tech Tips video on Youtube where the game becomes completely unplayable with the Radeon 6990 and loses performance with SLI setups.

So should we be disappointed? Maybe. We've come to expect excellence from Crytek. Crysis 2, in the minds of many gamers, does not live up to the high standards its developers have set for themselves in the past.

Should we buy the game? At this point, my opinion is that we should not. If EA wants consumers to pay $60 (more than the cost of standard PC games), we should demand QUALITY. Crysis 2 is clearly not a quality product in its current form. It may get better with patches, but the publisher needs to understand that asking gamers to pay $60 for a game which isn't finished yet is completely unacceptable.

You forgot another important part of the problem. Far Cry, Crysis, and Crysis Warhead....all are EXCELLENT open games. You could do pretty much anything you wanted.

Crysis 2....is linear, just like the COD series.

While that may be true, I wanted to focus my argument on the game as a consumer product. Specifically that the game was marketed poorly and released before it was finished.

I haven't played the game myself (I won't pay for it in its current state.), but if that's true, it's very disappointing indeed. A lot of the appeal of the original game and its sequel was the open environments; you really could tackle your missions in numerous different ways. That allowed the players' personalities to come out in their tactics.

The engine is well optimized, slightly better than UE3 engine, gameplay is basically linear CoD style run from check point to check point with nano suit, with some guy who has cameras everywhere yells you Alcatraz go to the car, Alcatraz go turn the switch, Alcatraz do everything! Then throw in some slow motion interactive cutscene where you hang in by a thread and press F to grab.

There is no sandbox, no physics no destruction, shooting at infected civilians has no effect, shooting at cloth with a bazooka has no effect, like it's made out of steel!

The game feels outdated by todays' standards and fails to live up to its' predcessor.

Agree, Theres alot of sweetness that isn't there anymore.

Its alot of playtime going down the drain because of this,

Spent alot of time in crysis just playing with physics, Same for Just cause 2.

To bad it wasnt more of an open world in New york with great physics. Could have been awseome. And ofc the graphis could be better but i would have preferd open world
