Crysis 2 – Where Can I Find Gaming Diapers?

CRYSIS 2, SIGN ME UP!

Now, I want to give a general review, since most of the technical topics if I were to discuss would go over most dumbshits normal people’s heads. Here’s some back story so you know what I’m talking about. If you know the game jump down a few paragraphs.

Unless you’re a PC gamer you’ve probably never heard of Crysis, Crytek’s 2007 blockbuster. This game was a breath of fresh air in a room full decaying EA titles and shitty sports games. It was incredibly hard not to be impressed by game play screens. I was left wondering how they could pull it off: ultra real visuals and fun game play? Impossible!

Crysis turned out to have unparalleled visuals, fast and furious game play, as well as dynamic/destructible environments. No game on the market even came close to this complete package and, although it launched in 2007, you would think it came out this year. The story goes: a team of archaeologists find non-terrestrial artifacts on a remote pacific island. North Korea finds out and being the greedy assholes they are, try to take over. With your high-tech nanosuit (capable of some very unique abilities such as super speed,  high density armor, and cloaking abilities), you are sent in to blow some shit up, and if you have time, save some hippy scientists.

After the most epic battles I’ve ever played in any game,  my efforts seem to be in vain. The alien invaders start to infest  the globe. Well…shit. But good news folks, because that means we get a fuckin’ sequel.

Crytek released the Crysis 2 multiplayer demo and so far my expectations have been shattered ten fold obliterated. The interface system is similar to most modern shooters that have launched in the past four years. Modern Warfare 2 has set the bar with its modes and game play mechanics. Following their model Crysis 2 adds its own spin. Unbelievably, the game will require less PC power than the first title less power than the sun.

Crytek, like Valve, built a quality gaming engine that withstood the test of time. By continuous optimization and implementing  higher polygon counts, they were able to push the engine further and further.  Crysis 2 runs smooth and is both beautiful AND actually fun to play – which is rare for this kind of genre. I’m lucky enough to enjoy this game the way it was meant to be played. I tested Crysis 2 on a GTX 480, i7-950 OC’d 4Ghz, 12gigs of ram OC’d. And because most gamers don’t have a PC to run this game without a hiccup, Crytek is also releasing this title on the Xbox 360 and PS3. For console users, the game is locked in at a solid 30+ frames per second. And from what I’ve read Crysis 2 will not compromise any of the quality and should play identical as its PC counterpart. Then again, if you’ve played the new Medal of Honor reboot on a high-end PC and then on the Xbox, you would laugh how crappy it ports to the console. Let’s hope this isn’t the case with Crysis 2.

    That first picture is NOT from Crysis. The environment detail looks NOTHING like that.
