One Paragraph Review: Crysis 2

by Brad Gallaway

Crysis 2 takes the tired old Sci-Fi FPS template and shakes it up by cramming a suite of options into a gray suit of armor that looks like a body with the skin stripped off. Leaping tall buildings, turning invisible, and seeing in the dark make everything feel fresh and new when the levels are open enough to let the player do so. In the other half of the game, good ideas take a breather in favor of killing waves of bipedal squid. Pluses outweigh the minuses, just don’t expect much of a story either way.
