The single player experience in Crysis 2 is excellent with varied difficulty levels available to challenge every individual. While the story isn’t exactly original… alien menace, shadowy big corporation, deserted New York City… it is certainly engaging and hectic as the action starts from the moment the intro finishes and it keeps going until the end of the 10-12 hour campaign.

Speaking of enemies, both the aliens and C.E.L.L forces we face in Crysis 2 have excellent A.I. The aliens are very mobile, utilising the same technology found in our Nanosuit. The C.E.L.L forces however rely mainly on overwhelming numbers and will also seek cover very quickly when they come under fire. C.E.L.L forces will also return fire from cover, making them quite difficult to kill. For example hitting legs, arms or even centre mass won’t put them down the first time (due to the heavy armour worn on the chest). A well-aimed neck or head shot will however stop them cold though most often we had to expend several bursts of ammo to take them out.

When the original Crysis was released in 2007 it set the benchmark for PC gaming performance. The CryEngine 2 graphics engine really stretched PC hardware of the time, to the extent that almost 4 years later we were still using it in our benchmarking tests on HardwareHeaven. With such a pedigree behind it a lot of expectation came with Crysis 2, especially as it included the debut of the new CryEngine 3 engine.

Those can be added back in manually (until properly enabled in a future patch) but we are delighted to confirm that Crysis 2 delivers on the graphics front, and then some… even without this update. When all is said and done, on a high end system the game looks great, regardless of what some will say. Essentially, whether we are running at high resolution such as 2560×1600 or surround gaming at 5760×1080 the detail on screen is stunning with quality in the models and an environment which looks realistic and has a decent level of destructibility.

In addition to the main gameplay Crysis 2 single player experience includes in game cut scenes which are are well animated and the interaction of characters on screen looks very realistic. These scenes really show off the power of the CryEngine 3 and it’s a testament to how good the game looks that Crytek don’t feel the need to include any pre-rendered scenes.

Just take a look at our custom images throughout our review to see how great the game looks on maximum detail…

We also want to make mention of the 3D capability of Crysis 2. We tested with NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround and were hugely impressed by how the game looked. It is one of the best examples of 3D gaming to date.

Crysis 2 has in game voice acting via the cut scenes as well as continual information provided to us via our heads up display and overall sections in the game are of a high standard.

The in game sound effects are impressive, ranging from subtle footsteps that give away the position of C.E.L.L. forces to over the top explosions as alien craft crash into New York skyscrapers. The deep rumble of buildings collapsing can be felt in our toes and random gunfire off in the distance adds a sense dread as we make our way through the game.

Crysis 2 also features in game music which is keyed to the onscreen action so during a fire fight the music is fast and frantic and when we stop to catch our breath the music slows as well which adds to the overall atmosphere of the game.
