I have to admit, I'm surprised.
You know, when Crysis 2 was announced, I started hating it. I don't know why, maybe because of the console port... the fact is: I couldn't help but hate it. Then i saw some video, and my perception of the game totally changed.
Then I bought the game. And I loved it.
Let me tell you that Crysis 2 is one hell of a ride, or at least it was so for me. It's not innovative, in fact the gameplay is kinda generic, we could say it's just another first person shooter, but let's analyze the game itself.
The campaign was awesome, by any means. It's pretty long for today's standards (I finished it in 7:30 hours, and it definitely has a replay value), and it doesn't feel "regular". I mean, the game is linear, no doubt about it, but the presence of a map, of tactic points that will help you to survive, make the game feel a lot fresher than "just another shooter".
Oh yeah, I was about to forget... the graphics. Crysis 2 is without doubt the best looking multiplatform game ever. I still think games like Uncharted 2 or Killzone 3 look a bit better (in terms of performances and resolution), but they're console exclusives..
The source lights and the reflections in the game are something spectacular. Unfortunately it suffers from some framerate drops, and the resolution is sub-HD, but you can easily pass by those issues, since the game looks awesome even with them.
The soundtrack is good too. You can also listen to each song when unlocked from the extra menu.
The multiplayer mode is nothing special. It feels a lot, a LOT like Call of Duty, but it's fun and addicting. Maybe not one of the best multiplayer shooters around, but it may be a reason to keep the disc spinning in your console, if you've already finished the campaign and still want some Crysis.
That's it. I hope you liked my review, this was my first one. lol
Sorry if there are any mistakes, I'm working to get my english better and better every day. :D
See you, and go buy Crysis 2, or at least rent it, you won't be disappointed.
