Digital Trends: Crysis 2 Review

Digital Trends: "I’ll put this simply, just so there is no ambiguity—Crysis 2 is the best-looking game ever made for consoles. There really isn’t anything that compares to it. When it comes to consoles, there is a ceiling to the graphical quality–there is only so much a console can do. You won’t come home and pop in a game on your 360 and suddenly be fooled with graphics so good you think they are live-action, the hardware just isn’t up to it. That being said, Crysis 2 does things I simply didn’t know where possible on a console. The game looks stunning, but beyond that, the most impressive thing is the level of detail."

Exactly, Cryteh has given us a goldplated new FPS that excels in all departements and looks fantastic on ALL consoles! thx Crytek!

somebody put a restriction on me for the last 2 days? why? i've been saying that Crytek would make all console versions equally good since the start...and that everybody should reserve his opinion till the final build came out....launch day and got a restriction on posting comments?? so low...must be the fanboys who hated me for going against the opinion that Crysis 2 was crap on PS3...the majority disagreed with me couple of days ago....thanks for nothing...anyways i'm happy the game turned out i thought it would..

I cant believe people are saying Killzone 3 is better looking, when, frankly, it clearly isnt.

Killzone 3 is a fantastic looking game of course, one of the best on the PS3, but I think Crysis 2 and Uncharted 2 look better.

Not just the art style, of which Killzone 3 PROBABLY wins, but as a technical achievement with lighting etc, Crysis 2 will be the new king. Maybe only by a fraction, but winning is winning.

Crysis 2 does look better and everybody knows it. Like you said, Killzone 3 is a nice looking game, but overall it simply isn't doing as much with graphics as Crysis 2 is.

Even on consoles Crysis 2 wins.

Wow, im surprised no one has started the KZ3 or whatever game comparison. Guess people are asleep or it's finally died down.

Anyway, Uncharted 2, GOW3, KZ3 > Crysis 2 in graphics.

"Anyway, Uncharted 2, GOW3, KZ3 > Crysis 2 in graphics."

So you say! sorry don't agree, I am just glad finally there is a game to partially at least shut people up, it's been rather quiet the last few days for obvious reasons.

These are the same people who didn't care about graphics, but as soon as IGN made that "remark" - well, I've never seen them this intense since 2006.

I've played the PC demo in "advanced" settings along with 1152x720 (the same exact resolution on the 360), and if the 360 version is comparable, then I cannot take IGN's word seriously.

@DigitalAnalog It isn't just IGN though is it.

DigitalAnalog2704d ago

Well IGN is the only review site where it gets the most hits in N4G.
