A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

While Crysis 2 isn't quite as good as its predecessor, this is a solid sequel.  The only real drawback to the game is that the "open world" factor has been cut back a bit and there's less versatility in what vehicles you can take control of.  However, it earns some big points with its more solidified, developed storyline, meaner enemies (particularly the Seph creatures), and the more diverse weaponry you can get.

I recommend playing Crysis and Crysis Warhead first, but despite all the complaining by diehard PC gamers, Crysis 2 is a good sequel.

Instead of making a normal review, let me tell you the five things I hate most in FPS games.      1) You will follow my orders, marine!  Many FPS pit you as the only hope against some kind of global threat, be it aliens from hell or just other soldiers. That's kind of cool, because it makes you feel like the hero. So why is it that the hero has to take orders from some military suit? Surely I should be the one choosing what to do, since I'm the one who gets the fighting …

About this video game


Sequel to one of the greatest PC shooters ever, Crysis 2 offers console players their first taste of Crytek's unique shooter gameplay. Featuring futuristic war, gorgeous destruction and the chance to kick alien butt on the grandest stage of all, New York City, Crysis 2 is destined at the least to equal its predecessor, if not surpass it. Additional features include: challenging AI enemies in the single player campaign, 12-player support online, new and improved upgradable Nanosuit 2 technology and more.

The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens have returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind, starting by trying to rip the heart out of Earth's most iconic city.

In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city's systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before. Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen.

One man will inherit ...
