I guess it falls to opinion but I think it looks great. The art style is certainly different than Crysis and the location is obviously completely different, but that still doesn't compromise the fact that it looks great (for me). It's certainly the best looking rendition of NYC in a video game that I have seen.

More importantly, I'm having fun playing it. Crysis (WARHEAD) were awesome games too but the gameplay moments were a little sparse in between the tours of Crytek's amazing rendering of foliage. Crysis 2 (to me, so far) is a little more focused on the gameplay and the options present this time around are just as plentiful as they were in the original games. You did have an entire island to roam around in in the original, but let's face it, you were surrounded by 1km high mountains most of the time so there often only two (maybe three ways) you could approach your objective and the same number of ways are given in Crysis 2.

The bold is what is wrong with the human condition. Just because Crysis had amazing visuals, and Crysis 2 has decent visuals, doesn't mean that the game is not worth buying and you should ditch it. Gameplay beats the crap out of the first Crysis (far from the standard COD shooter), Crytek ACTUALLY TRIED to add a decent story and decent character development, and the visuals, believe it or not aren't that bad. The only thing about the visuals that really gets to me are the low res textures, the excessive amounts of bloom, and overall sloppy "God Ray" system, and how scalability on Crossfire and SLI platforms sucks ass. But everything else is quite superb!

Crysis:

Head Manager: Ok men, with this game, we want to have the absolute BEST VISUALS ANYONE HAS EVER SEEN!

Lower Level Employees: Ok, what about Story?

HA! Who needs Stories when you have AMAZING VISUALS!

Well what about Intelligent AI?

They will be too busy looking at the awesome textures, to notice the AI so just be sloppy with that too man.....

Ok.... What about decent character development?

You seem to not be getting the memo, AWESOME VISUALS FOLKS!

And to apply even more scrutiny, last time I checked, NO ONE COULD SEE THOSE AMAZING VISUALS UNTIL ABOUT 2009!

That's right, that means that for most consumers, Crysis all around sucked!

Crysis 2 is well rounded to say at least. If has a good story , good character development, good visuals, and fun gameplay!

People say it a PC port but they forget how bad games look in PS3 and 360 because of low resolutions. Today i got my 360 back and stated playing some Black Ops and man the graphics were horrible.

The ranked servers not working was a problem with EA's regional master servers. I talked to like 2 reps about it and they said yes. It's been fine for me past like the first 2 days Crysis 2 launched.

I like that a majority of gamers say that gameplay and story telling are the most important yet there is like hundreds of threads raging over C2 not having DX11. And plenty of people are waiting just for DX11 before they buy the game. Maybe Crytek should just make playable benchmarks (or unplayable depending on your setup) with subpar story and gameplay just like Crysis 1 was.

What? The first Crysis was anything BUT subpar.

It was only subpar if you played it like every other shooter out there. If you used your suit abilities, barrels, trees, stealth, etc correctly, the game was awesome.

What if you don't like the gameplay? The story is fine, but the gameplay makes C2 a console port. Closed doors and barricades everywhere, tactical options/hint system, ammo crates, checkpoints, at times confused AI, lifeless cardboard characters, bossy Nanosuit, lack of true Speed and Strength mode, the need to upgrade Nanosuit instead of having the abilities from the start, poor FOV, lack of vehicles in MP etc.

Its not that hard to beat the gameplay of the first Crysis when the gameplay of the first crysis consisted of enemies with 1000 HP and AI pinpoint headshot accuracy at 1000 yards. Also pretty sure my friend with SLI 8800Ultras was able to see the game maxed way before 2009.
