I just finished the game on Veteran difficulty, have yet to try Post-Human Warrior. Don't let this turn into "OMG ITS A CONSOLE PORT, BECAUSE I CAN'T LEAN AROUND CORNERS AND PRONE" thread, the game didn't have somethings the first game had, yes, but it was still fun to play and was challenging at some points.
The ending clearly leaves an open window for a third game and the MP so far is pretty fun, thought it can get annoying because of snipers just camping away with cloak at every corner of the map.
Gonna try the demo when I get a chance so I can see whether my laptop can run it, if it can then I'll grab it just because I've seen a lot of interesting things about the level structuring in this game and I want to have a look.
A lot was made about the different ways to approach battles (combining weapons, powers and tactics), does the level design and gameplay pay off?
I don't think it's a good sequel. A sequel should improve on the first games point, but Crysis 2 is almost a totally different game.
The levels are much more linear compared to the first game where you could approach objectives through different paths and do side-missions. Since Crysis 2 is linear the pacing could be improved and honestly telling it's more fun to play then the first game. Still I am kind of disappointed that the big enviroments are not implemented.
The multiplayer was awfully boring though, I was using all of the nanosuit functions but honestly telling it doesn't change the gameplay much from the traditional CoD MP standard.
Basically worth pirating.
Although I haven't played it, I was surprised to hear the single player was a delicious 12 hours in length.
I think the only thing most people (or maybe just myself) are turned off by it is the shift from a super beautiful environment to what seems to be the same generic ruined city theme that's plagued the FPS genre for dick loads of years.
I played the campaign for this game for hours last night, which is saying a lot because I have a hard time playing a game for more than a half-hour nowadays. But, yes, it is a "generic ruined city" theme, but they did it beautifully! I loved how 3 dimensional the terrain is and how you can get to the higher grounds with a little trickery.
I love this game as a singleplayer game, but sadly, I don't buy singleplayer games. :/
I got it for the XB360 cuz my computer isn't good enough, for that stuff, but I am hoping to buy a copy for pc when I get an upgraded computer. I am finding Crysis 2 to be one very enjoyable.
I'm not sure what a lot of people are bitching about -- Accusing of console port and such, but I am happy to see that no one here has brought this up.
