Halo Meets COD
This is an excellent shooter. Probably one of the best graphical achievements in shooters on the Xbox 360. The gameplay is fun and not too challenging if you're a seasoned FPS player. The suit's special abilities adds a unique twist to the game. It's pretty much like having Master Chief's armor on you, in that you can take multiple shots without dying, cloak, rip gun turrets off and shoot with them, etc.... But the gameplay and feel is more like COD.
The story is pretty straight forward: "Aliens are invading, killing mankind to take the planet, you must save New York.", but the landscape and scenery are so amazing you feel like you're playing that kind of scenario in a new way for the first time.
It was truly a great gaming experience and I think both the heavy hitters in the genre could learn a thing or two from Crysis in regards to truly creating an atmosphere that sucks the player in and makes them feel: "What am I going to see next?"
cool turn around on shotters
this game is a great turn around from cod games great futuristic feel in which it make crysis games great.
okay but repetitive
one of the best if not the best intro to a game. beyond that the game gets real repetitive. go to one area and fight a big boss alien. move to another area fight the same boss. i did this 3 or 4 times and finally just quit playing. not a bad game just got boring. great graphics and sound. gameplay is not bad but like i said i was doing the same thing over and over again and it got very annoying. played it on easy and it was still very challenging
Best Looking Game
this game by the trailer i saw it was just something i knew i would buy it from the start and when i got it the story was amazing, the graphics blew me away and the ending, you knew it would be another coming out soon, this i can proudly say is one of my favorite games of all time.
The game is a game somewheat worth buying i wouldnt but it again if i had to though its an okay game
a fantastic modern sci fi shooter
i bought this game 2 days ago and i havent been able to put it down yet. i am playing on the soldier difficulty and died many times but the game is still fun. being in a suit that is mankinds only hope is awesome by being invisible and extra armor. the games story is awseome as well.
Crysis 2 = COD + Halo + Battlefield
Crysis 2 is a pretty good game that isn't one of the big popular titles. It offers pretty good multiplayer, but the campaign isn't all that interesting really. It mixes the feeling of Call of Duty's fast pace gameplay, Halo's jumping and movement, and Battlefield's HD quality and guns.
-Okay variety of weapons
-Fluent jumping around and climbing
-Decent amount of maps
-The invisible perk, campers sit in corners and just slaugther you
-Switching to grenades requires double tapping a button, and then they don't even hardly do that much damage
-Tend to die a lot without even seeing the bullets coming or the guy who killed you on the screen
-Customizing weapons at any time
-Silent assassinations are fun, if you don't get spotted
-Going invisible can get you out of almost any situation so you can hide
-Really just isn't that engaging, uninteresting
-Dying constantly when there's multiple enemies in a close zone
-There isn't many different enemies throughout the campaign
If you're bored of the main popular First Person Shooters, it's worth picking up for around $20 or less to play for awhile.
Its not Halo. Its not COD.
I bought this game because I wanted to kill some time before Halo 4 nd COD:Black Ops 2 came out, and I had read besides Halo or COD the Crysis 2 online multiplayer was one of the best, and I came away very dissapointed. I cant put my finger on exactly what it is that is wrong with this game, but the best way I can explain it is it just feels sloppy. When you shoot you dont have the tightness you feel when shooting on COD. And when you move around the board you dont have that smoothness you feel when you are playing Halo. The campaign wasn't great either. Not bad for $20, you could do alot worse, but no way this game is a 9 out of 10.
Great Overall Game
Like the original, Crysis stands tall on amazing graphic quality and visual designs. You really will be intimidated by some enemies and backed up by good sound, its a convincing gaming experience. This game blends the hardcore realism and sci-fi world game play as perfectly as they come. Online multiplayer had all the usual game modes, features and quirks you would expect and will be fun for a wide variety of players. I personally got bored by level 20 or so as generally combat would get lackluster as people rely heavily on hiding out while cloaked. Campaign is a real winner thanks to the excellent gameplay mentioned above, together with pretty cool level design and interesting easter egg type features. Great game.
This game is good because it has battlefield 3 like gameplay and the multiplayer is better than halos because of the create a class system.
