From PlayStation Universe: "Crysis 2 is the greatest product that is going to come out this year," promised David Demartini, General Manager of EA Partners. Demartini was touting Crytek's upcoming first-person shooter at EA's Crysis 2 World Premiere event last Tuesday, April 6. PSU was in attendance at the event, and while we think Demartini's statement may be a bit overzealous, we're happy to report that the sequel is looking extremely promising.
In Crysis 2, Crytek swapped out the lush jungle environments of the original for the crumbling, desolate city streets of New York City. "If the gamer cannot save New York, no other city will be able to be saved," explained Cevat Yerli, CEO & President of Crytek. He feels New York is a place we'd want to protect in the face of an alien invasion, making it much more emotionally relevant than a nondescript island."
