The Gameplay

Crysis 2 is very different from its original. A more saturated color palette, more linearity, and set pieces, along with a much more streamlined story that focuses more on the plot rather than actual character development.

You’ll be playing Alcatraz after being ambushed by the Seth, which results in Alcatraz putting on the nano suit to survive, leading you on an epic, well-short journey across a collapse in New York and it’s fantastic. Watching New York collapse is a trope we’ve seen many times over the years, but not quite like this in a video game. I don’t think any game to this day has successfully shown New York collapsing at this scale since Crysis 2.

Crysis 2 Review 2022: It’s a beautiful game with some of the most epic shit I’ve ever played through. The gameplay is some of the best FPS gameplay you’ll experience, especially with a nano suit. You’ll be cloaking to sneak past your enemies, you’ll use maximum armor to take a barrage of bullets laughing while you do it, and then you’ll be murdering every alien you’ve come across in any way you see fit.

AI can be ruthless at timeless, but most of the time they are a little confused. It’s quite buggy, to be honest with you, but when it works, it’s intense. They’ll flank team up and try to trick you into going into traps, which is pretty awesome.

Enemy Varieties

Along with that, there’s enemy variety. And while it may not be Halo levels of variety, there’s still a lot of variety here, going from your typical grunts to the giant tank-like creatures that won’t let you breathe, to the pingers that take like five or six rocket launcher hits and can be pretty terrifying on your first playthrough.

It’s not as terrifying as waking up to Toby Maguire standing over your bed and whispering gunplay is fantastic. While a little janky. I can’t really explain what I don’t like about the gunplay. It’s a feeling I can’t get past no matter how many times I replay Crysis 2. It just feels way too weighty at times. It’s an odd complaint, but I can’t really put it into words and it feels a little sluggish.

Different Guns

But the gunplay is still fantastic, thanks to the weapons. There is a bunch of weapons here that feel great to shoot from. Pistols, snipers, shotguns, and some other crazy weapons I won’t spoil. But along with that comes the movement. And that is where Crysis 2 starts to show off its big-boy boots. Movement is key to crisis two. You’re going to be balancing cloak and armor and sprinting, running from one piece of the cupboard to the next before a giant skyscraper decides to today is the day its legs are going to go out and try and crush you. It’s exhilarating, man.

There is no FPS game out there like Crysis now. Over the last decade, massive improvements have been made to the FPS movement. Games like Titanfall 2 wipe Crysis 2 out in the movement department. Like, it’s a no-brainer. And gunplay in general has improved significantly across the industry. So, yeah, if you’re planning to play Crysis 2 for the first time, just go in knowing you’re playing an older game.

So don’t let the visuals trick you because I did have a few moments where I was like, hang on a minute, 2011, you’re lying to me. This came out like 216 or something bit because it looks really good on PC. But yeah, it is an older game. Oh, by the way, Battlefield 2042, and Crysis 2 did the customizing gun thing while in gameplay before you and it was done way better here.

With each weapon you get, you can customize on the go equipping and removing silences, grenade launches, extended mags and sights, and scopes. Crysis Two is really just ahead of its time Level Design, while linear still gives you a few options to tackle enemy encounters. And it makes sure you use every weapon and ability at your disposal, creating some really great moment-to-moment gameplay that keeps you on your toes. Sure, it’s not perfect, but for a linear game, it does give you a lot of options compared to games like Call of Duty or Battlefield.

Set pieces are great most of the time, but they do take some of the control away from you to get that cinematic impact. But it’s never too invasive. But it would be nice to play through those moments rather than cut into a cinematic where you can’t control anything. 

I get it. It’s a 2011 game. It came out on the Xbox 360. So I’m hoping for Crisis Four, if we do get like big, massive set pieces like that, we actually get to play through them rather than being cut off for a cinematic, you know what I mean? We just can always remember the incredible soundtrack as well.

It wasn’t just Hand Zimmer doing that soundtrack, it was a bunch of composers and they nailed it. It’s epic and beautiful, which sums up crisis 2 quite nicely. It’s phenomenal. You also have a bunch of upgrades you can unlock throughout the game.

Crysis 2 Review 2022: Now, this was like my I don’t know how many playthroughs. I love this game, so I had a load of saves, so I didn’t start a new game. Well, I started a new game, but for some reason, all my upgrades carried over. But yeah, you can unlock new upgrades over the course of the game when you’re killing the aliens, you have to go over their bodies to pick up this goose stuff.

And it basically upgrades your suit so you can have different armor effects, different cloaking effects, you can track enemies, that sort of stuff. And while it’s not like the most in-depth customization, it’s nice to have it.

The Campaign

It just adds another feeling of progression to the game since it’s a linear campaign, a lot of games suffer from that. There’s no real progression in gameplay, there’s only progression in Story, like Call of Duty. But here you do have some elements that you can progress towards, you can unlock, and you can do multiple plays for use to unlock all the abilities, but there’s not much to it.

And of course, I can’t review the multiplayer because it’s not online anymore. I’m not too sure if there’s a mod out there like there was for Transformers, full of Cybertron, but I can’t see anything right now. Maybe I just haven’t done enough research. But yeah, the multiplayer is offline, so don’t buy it for multiplayer.

It’s done, it’s over. EA does not care about crises, so you know what I mean, they don’t care. So the multi-player is offline, so I can’t review that, unfortunately. So I actually quite enjoyed it back on the Xbox 360 with my 30 frames per second, if that was probably like 20.

The Story

Now, I think I’ve spent enough time licking the backside of Crysis 2, so let’s talk about some things I didn’t like. The story of Crysis 2 is a mess. It focuses on the plot while failing to deliver any genuine emotional moments, which does not help with the voiceless protagonist. It makes a lot of scenes feel really robotic and loses any emotional aspects to it.

The voice acting, while not the worst, definitely isn’t the best, and ventures into parody territory at times. And Crysis 2 is incredibly short. You’re looking at about four to 5hours of gameplay since it’s so linear. And that’s it really.

Crysis 2 Review 2022: That’s the only real negative I have about Crysis 2, apart from some weird PC issues, which I experienced this time around. I had a lot of screen-tearing issues this year for some reason, and I couldn’t figure out why. So that really bothered me. And I had multiple crashes, which I never experienced before.

I’m guessing it’s something to do with Windows 10 because of how old Crysis 2 is, but it was just an odd experience because it never happened to me before over the last ten years, but that’s genuinely it. 

In terms of negatives, it’s a very short game. The AI is a bit of a mess sometimes, and the story is a bit crap, but for a four to five-hour game, I know it’s short. It’s short, but every moment feels like a lot of care has been put into it. The set pieces feel good, and the gunplay feels good.

The AI, while a bit dumb, works better than most Call of Duty, better than most Battlefields, and better than Halo sometimes. So, yeah, I think it’s a really good game, even for 2022 standards. In fact, I think it’s a lot better than some games that come out today.
