Crysis 2 is resounding proof that there is a way to make s*** shine. This game looks great, but great graphics don't make you want to come back for more.
PC gamers were assured their platform would not suffer from Crysis 2 being released on consoles. However, we've been handed nothing more than a cheap console port. Make no mistake, this game was designed from the ground-up to work on consoles 1st - and PC 2nd.
The reason this is so bad, is that Crysis is no longer a game set in a free-roaming world where you can decide for yourself which direction to take. The level design is very simple: go through a 'corridor' then exit to an open space (or 'action bubble') have a fight with several foes, then exit through a 'corridor' to start the process over and over again. This is a design perfectly suited to console gameplay and technology limitations.
It is also here where the cruel console-oriented autosave system comes in. You will have to fight your way to the other side of these 'action bubbles' before your game is autosaved. And don't think you can simply cheat by using your cloak - enemies can see you regardless of your invisibility.
You'll encounter Quicktime events, a weird, awkward and intrusive 'lean' function that only works when the game intends it to be used, occasionally the odd left-over Xbox controller instruction... all thanks to the developers porting it from consoles.
Fighting the alien enemy is not an enjoyable experience. Make one mistake and they'll descend on you so quick and ruthlessly you'll be screaming with anger after the umpteenth time it's happened. Sometimes the game will let you stealth kill if you're close enough, other times it inexplicably won't give you the option. The alien AI is SO unbalanced; even if you've activated your invisibility, they run straight at you from a far and attack. Other times they get stuck on each other or on the landscape.
I could continue to complain why this game turned out to be such a disappointment (did I say the story/acting is desperately poor?) but I think you get the gist. Crysis 2 is a beautiful game but severely lacking in the enjoyment department... and crucially, it's another slap in the face to PC customers.
