Crysis 2 single-player impressions (PC Version)

crysis2Since the success of “Modern Warfare,” the most recent string of first-person shooter games have been plagued with copy cats and stale performances. Developers have been waiting in line to try their hand at becoming a breakout success in the genre.

Coincidently, these past few years have purposed me to believe that shooters had nothing left to give and that graphics where at an all-time best. Then developer Crytek comes along and releases their sequel to the PC shooter “Crysis.” I was already prepared for the game to be good, but I never expected to be utterly blown away from what I thought was an exhausted genre.

First and foremost, “Crysis 2” is unforgettably beautiful. From its breathtaking vistas to its realistic indoor spaces, you won’t want to waste time blinking. Everything imaginable has been crafted with meticulous care, concentrating on the world’s believability.

Crysis 2 city You’ll think that your graphics card has been magically upgraded by the guys at Crytek because of how well the game runs at its maximum beauty. This is saying a lot, considering their previous games are still crippling even the best PCs on the market.

“Crysis 2” has the player in mind, priding itself as a rare game that complements the PC’s advantageous control scheme. The controls are tight with fluid movement that makes firefights feel rhythmic, like a sequenced ballet. Nothing feels more satisfying than killing multiple armed soldiers with grace and accuracy.

After playing just one third of what “Crysis” has to offer, it has left me wanting more. The story has been beefed up and the mission structure more defined than in the original. The sound quality is nothing less of Hollywood production, and the voice acting is solid.

“Crysis 2” launched out of the gate at full speed, setting a new precedent for shooters and making those copy cats seem more like knockoffs. Fans of the series couldn’t have asked for more.

Keep an eye out for our full review and hands-on coverage of the multiplayer modes.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    videos, this website could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.
    Very good blog!

    Emails get lost and they get deleted so that is something that
    you may want to consider. This is one time of the year when school children look forward to a party in the class and a time to distribute
    Valentines to their friends. ” If you’re all too familiar with that sad sound and phrase, don’t worry; you’re not alone.
