The original was known for two things: being a great shooter and being so graphics intensive that you couldn't physically run the game. Naturally Crytek is going to throw you into another high-quality environment. This time you're shuttled off to NYC in a move that most magazine straplines have called a shift from jungle to urban jungle, and to be fair it's a spot on turn of phrase. This New York has the chaotic quality reserved for nature. After the alien invasion the place has lost any element of humanity. Buildings are now just structures to climb through, rooftop greenhouses are just used to perch on to get a better view of enemies".
