"I'm not exactly best buds with Crysis 2. However, one thing I absolutely adored about it was Hans Zimmer, Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu’s score for the game, which dazzled me hard enough that I eventually ‘maximum cloaked’ a few of my dollars and bought the soundtrack.
This track, titled “New York Aftermath,” is one heck of composition and is used repeatedly throughout the game. The violin works extra hard here to get under your skin, and it slowly and effectively builds up in a crescendo alongside the piano until the absolutely majestic main attraction comes along, which words really can’t describe. What’s even better is that the track takes a few seconds at the end to have the piano linger around, letting the mood really sink in and make an impression. It may be a depressing track, and one that could fit snugly into any serious game you put it in, but I’ll be damned if that takes away any of its emotional power." (Michael Urban, OnlySP.com)
