And the fact that it uses less technically advanced graphics than Crysis 1, but runs slower on modern hardware.
You seem to be quite well-informed on a game you haven't bought.
Also, since when was good art direction a bad thing?
Also, these are valid criticisms (most of them anyways) but I thought we bought games in order to play them; not to nitpick what happens behind the scenes when the end result is something as good-looking as Crysis 2 is.
