Crysis 2 Review [Shogun Gamer]

Ian Fisher writes: Crysis 2 is literally a video game equivalent of a big Hollywood action movie. It has a lame and under developed plot, action that we’ve seen hundreds of times before along with amazing set pieces that are sometimes spread too far apart. Crysis 2 isn’t a poorly developed game by any means but it’s just a title that didn’t live up to the hype it had nor did it succeed in blowing the competition away from a graphics perspective on the PS3 and Xbox 360. As a FPS game Crysis 2 is sadly just another title that fails to stick out in a crowded market.

Game deserves this score. Most buggy game I've played in a while.

BeaArthur2744d ago

It does have some bugs but they are comical and don't break the game. Especially after the patch that fixed the AI.


@BeaArthur Oh shut up....Reviews are peoples opinion...Deal with it.

BeaArthur2744d ago (Edited 2744d ago )

Yeah they are peoples opinions and I have mine. Judging by your bubbles, I would say nobody cares about yours though.

The grain glitch aka huge rectangular pixels akin to a very low quality streaming video ruined the later levels and the lag is laughable at times but notwithstanding I'd give the game an 8.5/10.

Definitely not best graphics on either console though it's far too muddy looking isn't smooth enough.

It's not the bugs that killed it for me (though they didn't help) it's the sheer blandness of the gameplay.

BeaArthur2744d ago

You call this game bland and then defend Killzone 3? Or should I call it generic corridor military shooter #57? Online was awesome but the campaign is as dry and as boring as they come.

Oh and as far as your comment above...I would have said the same about anyone who gave Killzone 3 a 6/10 as well.

Lots of the game's design bulletpoints underwhelmed me as well.

*story liberally borrows key points from Resistance towards the end.
*dull charachters including a Sev lookalike (Chino) and a silent protagonist with a penchant for blacking out and waking up in new areas.
*immersion breaking pop-in/pop-out ranging from objects and textures to even scenery like the mini waterfall streams in the broken Statue of Liberty level.
*poor hit detection online
*inconsistent and buggy AI
*samey level design/lack of variety, slow pacing
*cloaking breaks the game (I just ran through it on Supersoldier)

Oh well. I have all the SP trophies and half the online but I'm done. I'll come back in 6 months for the freebie 'dedicated player' trophy but that's it.
