It was one of the most gorgeous games to release in 2007, and allowed players to traverse a wide open jungle as the predator. With Crysis 2 the tropical beaches and palm trees are cast aside, instead we’re given drab stone walls and a city under siege. Is this attempt to bring the series into the mainstream, more of a sacrifice or a success?"
