Crysis 2: The Most Underrated Game of 2011

Crysis 2 was released in March 2011 and it’s one-year anniversary is coming up fast. The game landed a metacritic score in the mid-80s for the Xbox 360 and PS3. It scored an 86 for the PC version. You can buy Crysis 2 now from Amazon for roughly $30. This information should signal two things to you: 1. The fact that it is still worth 50% of its original retail value one year after its release; and 2. That it scored well with the critics (although it deserved a higher score) -- should lead you to the conclusion that Crysis 2 is a game worth playing. Here’s the review. (Crysis 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -

Crysis 2
Crysis 2 SUCKED........when compared to Crysis!

Crysis was much much better in every department!
Gameplay, story, control, graphics, etc..

In their pursuit to please consolers Crytek made way too many stupid changes that completely took away the great feel of Crysis/FarCry from Crysis 2!

Hopefully they go back to their roots and bring that special gameplay feeling back!

So Crytek go play Crysis PC and FarCry PC before making Crysis 3!

I rented Crysis 2 and it was truly horrible. The controls, the stealth, the bland art style, everything. I always finish the games I start and I couldn't bring myself to play even 3 hours of that thing.

Crysis 2 was nothing great compared to orginal Crysis. So no it wasnt underrated it was a dissapointment instead.

I really loved Crysis 2. It clicked with me. I liked it just as much as the first Crysis.

I honestly think Crysis 2 was the best FPS campaign of 2011

Same here. And even though it had it's issues, I loved multiplayer too.

It wasn't a bad game, I just feel that the story kinda dragged after a while.

Campaign was good.

But the MP portion is what killed it off. That, and the lack of support for the game from Crytek & EA.

Huh Console gamer? i play games on all platforms.Crysis 2 is just boring and its a shame that it got more spot light/sold more than a quality game like Metro 2023.

There are many other games more deserving of the title "underrated gem" than Crysis 2.

best unique FPS of the year for sure. What was it competing with really? modern military shooters x 10

Campaign was okay, boring for the most part.

The multiplayer was just god awful. Worst hit detection I've ever seen.

I actually enjoyed the multiplayer.

Underrated???

The game was good but was a great disappointment when compared to the original Crysis on both scale and freedom...
