"Halo and Gears of War: you’re both on notice. There’s a new contender on Microsoft’s little console and its name is Crysis."
Wow, high score. *clicks to read* I'm kinda worried about this game, since it looks like a big change from the PC version. Pretty dumbed down, from what I've seen.
I love this game!
So it is actually as good as the original?
Better by the looks of things
Hard to say, this is a review for the 360 version only.
Epic score - is this the best game of the year so far? If only Homefront had impressed as much...
Best game of they year so far? i think that belongs to LBP2.
The killer of PCs is back and (apparently) better than ever!
Still not convinced. And kinda shooter'd out anyway.
So.. 9.4, that's the graphics score, right? How about the actual game?
no, thats overall
The presentation score is a 10, actually!
You joke me. Crysis 1 was... bad. I'm having trouble believing they made Crysis 2 a "10", in terms of presentation. Now I'm gonna have to pick it up. I will lose all faith in VGC if the story sucks, though.
It's almost 10gb download from Steam. Still have to wait 2hrs before playing =(
Looks interesting, played the multiplayer demo, found it fun, but I'm about tired of the FPS genre, last one I really got into was GoldenEye, got Reach not long after and still have to beat it, I might pick this one up after my tolerance for FPS games has built back up.
Can't wait to play this.
LOL vgchartz review
I know, right! How dare they attempt to write a review of a game based on your bias against their sales numbers!
I'm about 3 hours in, and all I can say is I'm loving it. I really enjoyed the first but this one is much better. The graphics are better, probably the best I've ever seen. Some of the lighting effects just blow my mind. There is also a lot of really cool upgrades. The beginning of the game shocked me... If you've played the others you will be shocked too. Highly recommended!
Please tell there are more settings than in the PC demo?
There are 4 settings. They added extreme to the final build, which includes much higher resolution textures, and some fancy lighting effects. It looks great. I played with them all, and even the lowest setting looks good. I run a 5850, with a Phenom 2x4 @3.8ghz and I run at max settings no problem. There are no individual settings that I noticed, but the presets are very well balanced and I think it was a good move.
