Crysis 2 Multiplayer always looked like it was going to be a lot of fun - and it is!
I have played for about 10 hours and Crysis 2 Multiplayer Rocks! The environments are vibrant (though I like KillZone3's dark and dirty feel) and detailed. Each map is set in a war torn part of NYC and they vary from down town sky scrapers to roof top gardens and public parks, warehouses and shopping malls to derelict piers and boat yards.
Each location provides plenty of opportunity to make the best use of the Nanosuit's abilities; whether that be stealthy sniping or hiding cloaked in a dark corner, and there are plenty of opportunities to leap across huge gaps and scale buildings in a single bound. In fact the way you configure your NanoSuit could infact change depending on the map. I think custom tweaking of this awesome technology will come, but for now I am content with some basics - in particular the hologram attachment.
Simply point the gun where you want to go, activate the hologram and watch as he takes the path you were about to take. Often you will see the enemy break from cover so you can pick them off quickly as they rush into the open. Alternatively you will witness your other self hailed in bullets from on high - its not safe out there. Clever use of the hologram, the armor and cloaking modes of your NanoSuit will enable you to traverse the map without taking any damage.
If this sounds too easy - well it isn't! There are going to 6 guys on the other team doing the same to you and for starters they will be better at it. Crysis 2 provides a recruit level mode where you will only be pitted against ranks 10 or lower, ensuring (in theory) that all will be on the same skill level.
The Nanosuit is the best and worst thing about this game! It rewards players for longevity. Yes its a little unfair if you have just started out and you are playing against players who have been on line for a while. You need to unlock more than the basics to be really competitive in this game. That said a few evenings work and you will be happy with your load out I am sure.
I have only played for a few hours but I must say that this looks like the final nail in Black Ops coffin for me.
