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.
- Crysis set the visual benchmark for PC games that still stands today. Crysis 2 will redefine the benchmark on console and PC platforms, shifting their attention to the rich urban jungle of New York City.
- Challenging best-in-class AI with unique group coordination and group behaviour systems which give realistic responses to your actions.
- Adapt your combat tactics by customising your Nanosuit and weapons in real time with revised modes, unlocking a variety of supersoldier abilities.
- World-renowned multi-player shooter studio Crytek UK is going to reinvent multiplayer with the dynamic intensity of Nanosuit 2. By using Nanosuit technology the player has nearly unlimited ways to approach the dynamic combat environment.

Crysis 2 is a great example of how games are becoming more than just a game: it's a gaming experience. Every situation that the game throws at you allows you to tackle it in different ways. There isn't always one route to the end of the road, or one route to the top of the building and so on... The scenary and AI allows for the gamer to create his/her own experience and make it truly individual. Coupled with this is the games film-like quality. There are no breaks or gaps when the gameplay switches to cinematics. It keeps the 'first person' view throughout, making what you're watching that much more engaging as you're still watching it through your character's eyes.
This game has everything that a guy could want from a game: a bad*ss soldier in a bad*ss suit fighting bad*ss soldiers and aliens in a visually stunning setting.
The downfall of Crysis 2 is its gameplay time. I read online before buying it that EA boasted 60 hours of gameplay. I however usually play games slowly and finished this one within 20 hours. Even though 20 hours of gameplay is decent in comparision to some games recently (thinking of Black ops), it still was dissapointing when I finished, having thought I was only a thrid of the way through. It caught me by suprise.
This game is visually the most incredible I have ever played. You really have to take the time and soak in all the detail the coders have given you to gaze at. Some of my friends have said that even watching the game is entertaining enough as it looks like a movie. Epic landscapes, crisp graphics, challenging terrain, and your nano suit make this game one of the more engaging experiences you will have with a first person shooter this year.
