Crysis 2 Review

I've been able to play more of Crysis 2, so I decided I can write my thoughts about it. Easily enough, the game gets a 10/10 for graphics. It's definitely a game where once I enter a new area, I do a 360 view of everything and just love it. Gameplay is pretty good, the controls don't feel bad at all, and after a bit of playing it, you can get into a nice groove and everything goes smoothly.The singleplayer campaign is great. While the story to it isn't anything incredible, it definitely builds well off of the first Crysis. The singleplayer portion is so well done though, I'd recommend it just off of that.

The only place where the game seems to be lacking though is multiplayer. It follows the standard for fps multiplayers these days. Leveling up to unlock guns, using perks and killstreaks, ect. The different nanosuit abilities makes it a bit exciting though (stealth, power, and sheild), but the one thing that sticks out is that when you kill someone, they drop dog tags, and you have to run over where the person died and pick up their dog tags. Once you collect 3/5/7 tags, you can use the respective killstreak. This alone makes the gameplay kinda one sided, where the people who run and gun are able to get a bunch of killstreaks while the other people who like to snipe are left in the dark.

So if you're not much for multiplayer, I'd say go for this game. But if what you look forward to the most is killing other players, then it would be a much more difficult decision. But hey, it's certainly better than Homefront haha.

In other news, I'm almost done with the audio in the truck, just got to finish wiring the amplifier and it should be good. Oh, and my friends are getting me pumped for this game, and I'm probably going to get it haha.

  13. I'm calling it the Brink is going to be a dud. It just seems very mediocre, and could very well not function properly at all, gameplay wise.
