Manufacturer's Description

New York is under alien attack as the tropical jungles of the original game give way to the concrete jungle of the Big Apple. The critically acclaimed Crysis series makes its first appearance on consoles and shows exactly why PC gamers have lauded it for its graphics and innovative gameplay.

New York is under attack from deadly alien invaders
Use a wide range of weapons and the new Nanosuit 2
Crysis 2 features some of the best graphics ever seen
Turn the fully destructible terrain to your advantage

Wearing the new Nanosuit 2 only you have the abilities and knowledge to combat the alien threat, even as you're also being hunted by human agents. Depending on your needs you can instantly tell the suit to augment your speed, strength or aiming accuracy - or even make yourself invisible.

Combine your powers at the right moment and you have the flexibility to take down any threat in your own unique style. Whether you stalk enemies with stealth takedowns, boost your strength to flatten them with parked cars or use the versatile range of guns and weaponary you can play the game anyway you want.

Key Features
  • World Crisis: Crysis comes to consoles for the first time as New York becomes the latest battleground in an alien takeover of planet Earth.
  • Latest Fashion: The Nanosuit 2 gives you the flexibility to take on enemies however you want as it augments your strength and speed and even turns you invisible for short periods.
  • Tactical Choice: Pick your own strategies as you explore the large open world levels - will you attack quietly and unseen or go for an all out assault with guns blazing?
  • Photorealism: State-of-the-art graphics use the new CryEngine 3 technology to bring the most advanced visuals ever seen on consoles and the PC.
  • Worthy Opponent: Advanced artificial intelligence powers every enemy, with humans and aliens all having vastly different reactions and tactics to combat your presence.
About the Developer: Crytek
Although one of Germany's biggest games developers Crytek was actually founded by three Turkish brothers and has studios in Frankfurt, Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria, South Korea and England. Crytek are best known for high tech first person shooters such as the first Far Cry and Crysis.

Product Description

The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens have returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind, starting by trying to rip the heart out of Earth's most iconic city. In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city's systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before. Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen. One man will inherit that means to survive. One supersoldier, wielding the combat enhancement technology of the future with Nanosuit 2, will make the last stand to save humanity from destruction in the urban jungle that is New York City

5.0 out of 5 stars Brains & Brawn 27 Mar 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm going to get the 'elephant in the room' out of the way at the beginning. On a technical level, Crysis 2 on the PS3 is supposedly the graphically weaker of the three versions of this game. Importantly though, that shouldn't prevent anyone from buying it.

Once this is plugged into an HDTV you really shouldn't care less what it looks like on other systems because here it is absolutely stunning. Everything looks really good from the devastated architecture of New York to the weather effects, allies and enemies you come acrosss. Water, fire, smoke and dust are immersive and convincing, and the lighting has to be some of the most advanced out there right now. The greatest credit to the visuals on show here is that by the end of the first level you will stop being gobsmacked by how good it all looks and simply accept what is put in front of you. It's hard to describe, but the art design here is geared towards making the in-game objects/environments feel real, huge or frightening, rather than simply aiming to make them 'look good' on a technical level.

The frame rate isn't especially slick (but is still perfectly playable) and you occasionally catch a tiny amount of motion blur in the characters, but these are minor points compared to the overall experience.

The rich audio is impressive; from weapon sounds to creaking buildings, and the sound designers know how to creep you out when they want. The soundtrack is a mixed bag, with the first main theme having a real 'dirge' sound to it, but there are also some great orchestral numbers in the vein of classic action movie scores as the game progresses that you'll have stuck in your head afterwards.

The gameplay is flexible, as each level is basically a giant sandbox.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Engrossing 9 Aug 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've just finished my second play through of Crysis 2 (that's right, second!) and can't recommend this game highly enough. The gameplay is fantastic, the plot engaging, the characters well developed and the graphics astounding.

Everything seems to fit together perfectly, it's an ideal FPS and the scope for replay and expansion is massive. Can't wait for Crysis 3 basically!

4.0 out of 5 stars Becomes brilliant! 15 Jan 2012
By Steven
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me be honest, I thought it was ok at points, but when you progress throughout the game it becomes brilliant. These sorts of games are what makes gaming brilliant.

Let me just give you a top three 'good' points about this game:

1) The Nano Suit - simply brilliant how you can cloak (got to love that 'cloak engaged' voice!) and snap someone's neck the next moment.

2) The pace - at the start it is more sedate and you have less enemies to worry about, but by the end it builds to a crescendo. This is not something that many games do, and those which do this are often the most rewarding.

3) Weaponry - simply brilliant here, from simple assault rifles to rocket launchers. There is something for everyone. Also, the fact you can customise your weapons in real-time is a fantastic innovation and something I would like to see more games do in the future.

I bought the first Crysis a few days ago for 7.99 off PSN, and I'm hoping I'm as taken with it as I was with this. I'm sure a jungle setting will be different enough to New York City!

3.0 out of 5 stars Panic on the Streets of New York 29 Sep 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There are some gorgeous looking games out on the current generation of consoles and `Crysis 2' is one of the best. The slightly futuristic depiction of New York is immense and clean looking, whilst the enemies look mean. However, looks are not everything in a game as gameplay, story and diversity of play needs to be taken into account, in these areas `Crysis 2' is a little lacking.

There is no denying that the game is a very solid first person shooter, the aiming is great and the weapons feel good. However, when the game itself feels so lifeless these strong elements cannot paper over the cracks. The story continues from the first game in the series, but it is banal and uninteresting that they needn't have bothered. The gameplay is also a little too samey throughout. Enter an area, scout for possibilities and then attack as you see fit - either stealth or power. This works well once or twice, but by the time you get to the 12th burnout city block it all becomes boorish.

Online the multiplayer is amongst the best that the 360 and PS3 has to offer, varied maps and the different ways to use your power armour means there are more tactics than you would think. However, once again the mode may be solid, but is just more of the same FPS action that has dominated the market for 15 years. There are not enough fresh ideas in either the solo or online game to push the game above the average.

Is `Crysis 2' worth playing? Certainly, it is one of the best looking and most solid FPS experiences on the 360/PS3, but be aware that you may become bored sooner than you think.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crysis of faith 17 Aug 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm going to start this review by getting something out of the way, which to many gaming enthusiasts may seem like blasphemy: Crysis's graphics aren't that great - they really not. That's not to say that this is an ugly game, it simply suffers from bland level design on some occasions, and overuses its considerable graphical assets. `What's the problem with that?!' I hear the enthusiasts cry. I'll tell you it makes the game; stutter, bland and dull.

The frame rate takes the biggest hit. The environments are much more open than other corridor shooters that Crysis shares its genre with, but with the amount of detail and visual trickery on screen (even when the action isn't picking up) the frame rate only really reaches about 24fps. Far too slow, and unresponsive for my liking. Other things tarnish Crysis's graphical fidelity too; textures look bland up close, enemies appear in front of you out of thin air, and the game seems to leave artefacts behind things on screen. This appears as a strange wispy trail after everything and I personally found it infuriating.

The game also starts badly. Fighting Cell soldiers for the first couple of levels is tedious and repetitive. The A.I stands still and shoots and are way too good at detecting you from miles away, when behind them and 40 stories up... That is when they're not transfixed on walking into a wall or spinning with gay abandon on the spot. However the game's designers built a way to circumvent these roaming unpredictable headaches. Using the suit's cloaking function to avoid the drab combat you can simply run through the equally drab environments to the end of the level.
