  Crytek knows how do amazing graphics but...

| | See all ali1987's reviews (24)

I bought this game alongside Killzone 3 and Resistance 3. I didn't find it as good as K3 is but it was better than R3. Crytek has different approach to gameplay than other two games. You have more freedom how to play either stealthy or rampage killing or in between. The visuals are some of the best i have ever seen. I have a big bone to pick up with Crytek regarding the AI which is jarring and confusing. Specially the ceph (aliens) have erratic behavior when they fight you and I wished there was more variety. The story is uninteresting and due to some bad level design choices specially the last level of the game, it's not on par with K3. Still a good game if you are looking for a change.

  epic or awseome isnt the word.

i absolutely loved this game. never really tried out the multiplayer properly, but loved the campaign mode and played it a couple of times, so thought it was a worthwhile investment. great graphics, smooth gameplay and the nano suit is wicked.

  slow starter but pickes up well!

this game takes a little while to get going but once it picks up its well worth getting stuck in to! the graphics are OK, not as good as some people say but the game play is top notch. took about 10 hours for me to finish but what i would say is to play this game on the hard setting as normal mode is a little too easy.

Almost flawless. Visually as good as Ive seen on the PS3. Killzone 3 was impressive but some of the effects in this game give it the edge. Gameplay is smooth and engaging. This will take some beating. Worth the asking price which is not often the case nowadays. Well done EA After playing this I forgive you for wrecking Fifa 11.

  Not as good as everyone makes out

There is soooo much hype about this game and being a die hard COD fan, I was quite eager to give it a go and see if it is as good as people say.... unfortunately I have to say i am disappointed. First, the positives.... graphically, the game is fantastic, smoke, water, fire etc all look great. Ive seen better cut scenes in the likes of COD and Killzone but I wouldnt mark it down for that. Also the choice of weapons and upgrades is great especially the various customisation options that are available.

Now the Negs,starting with the gameplay.... how people can say that this is challenging is beyond me! The AI is awful, the soliders walk into walls and get stuck or will fire at random intervals ever when they havent seen you which often means you have to rethink your strategy unecessarily!! My biggest gripe in this repsect however is the stop start nature of it through the use of the 'tactical' options! The idea of having a tactical display is great but its very poorly executed since a lot of the time you cant actually do what it says without risking being seen due to the fact that jumping/rapid movement drains your cloaking ability! Plus the markers identifying where the enemies are is so faint that you will often miss them when moving about, thus causing you to be seen and
subsequently being killed!! All in all, very annoying!

This isnt by any means a bad game, it looks great and is a lot of fun. However I just personally feel it isnt worth all the hype that it receives and doesnt have the longevity that comes with the likes of COD and Killzone.

I played the first one on PC and enjoyed it tho i felt it was lacking flow where as Crysis 2 set in New York as you are a walking corpse is one of the best games i have ever played, The Freedom you get with this game is amazing Customising your weapons and facing fast paced Aliens using Stealth and Force as you battle through New York Amazing game graphics are incredible a must have game!

This is an excellent fps, with some amazing graphics and gadgets to hand. the levels are detailed and action packed. Struggled to find most of the collectibles overall a great game with lots of action worth buying concept is great

Firstly it's a good game, but there is something about it that i just didn't take to. I'm a big FPS fan and have tried them all but as much as i tried to like this it just didn't keep me glued, i think this is due to the amount of shooters coming out lately with very little variety.
The graphics are very nicely done and the single player is very good but the multiplayer was what let me down. I'm not a dedicated call of duty fan so im not comparing crysis to it but there was simply nothing new. Nothing about it made me want to sit there for hours but i can see why people have highly rated it with it being a nice chage from black ops ect.
For those who love their FPS's, don't expect anything about this to blow you away but it's a nice little breath of fresh air from the rest.
