    Man another good title that fell to console player standards. Such a pity as I was hoping it would be awesome. The way they make you micromanage the nanosuit and the AI just ruined it for me. 2 hours in I couldn't force myself to play anymore and I am a avid Crysis 1 fan. I just borrowed it as I refuse to by any games anymore (price vs what you get just isn't worth it anymore)

    Biggest bummer is the limited map space and very little is destructible. So no more killing enemies by knocking down the building they are in which I personally loved doing.

    Everything about the game has taken a step backwards :mad:

    Gameplay
    Graphics
    Cutscenes (realtime vs prerendered)
    Controls
    Multiplayer
    Story length

    Everything has just been thrown away. Crytek should stick to PC exclusives, I lived Far Cry and Crysis... Crysis 2 makes me want to puke.

    Crysis 2 and Far Cry 2 share the same feeling then :p I loved Far Cry 2 till I noticed I was playing the same 4 missions and that stupid malaria kicked up. I hear Far Cry 3 will be in Africa again too ~_~

    Far Cry 2 was developed in-house by Ubisoft :p

    Didn't stop it for sucking utterly though. By 20% I wanted to smash my pecker with a hammer. If they had only put in 30-40 UNIQUE missions the game would have been so much better. Also now that there is a "no malaria" trainer it makes the game even more enjoyable lol.

    Sadly though to date I have yet to hear of them adding more to the game so my copy wastes away (got it with a GPU purchase)

    Yeah far cry 2 was basically the same mission over and over again. The game engine has a lot of potential though... too bad the game sucked :p

    I am hoping they fix this in Far Cry 3 which is suppose to be released by the end of this year. However knowing UBI and their ever falling standards I doubt it. I really hope this isn't in Africa again or Malaria. I heard they might be trying a Arctic approach which could be fun (10$ says they force you to "get warm" or you die instead of malaria)

    Hopefully... It's like the FEAR games, first one was great, second one sucked really bad, and they take their bloody sweet time making the third :eek:

    Meh, game was alright. Story wise wasnt the greatest, though I'll admit towards the end it got intense, but I still think the first one was in a sense better.
    However the graphics were amazing, especially with the lighting, surprised it ran fine on hardcore settings

    Yeah I'm playing it on Xbox, the story is great, so far I like it better then the first one, going to buy it for pc and play it again for sure. I really like how you can combine suit powers and the stealth kills are always a plus.

    Why are all apocalyptic games happening in a destroyed New York.....It appears that people have something against that Statue of Liberty.
    Overall i would have to give to this game 7.5/10. The low vote is because i have seen so many as this one already

    Yes, your system should still handle it. It runs on consoles, it will run on your system that is more powerful than an Xbox is

    good news, it runs flawlessly i am very impressed, iv got it on low of the low settings yet it still looks beautiful, plays flawlessly with an average fps of about 60-80 with fraps :D

    only problem with it is i have to put my key code in everytime on MP, is this intentional or is there some way to save it??

    Try entering the key without dashes.

    i went on mycrysis, theres a fix...put the keycode in, go to singleplayer, go back to multiplayer and voila done

    dont know how or why it works it just does lol

    oher than that not a single problem, and the single player rocks as well.
