Excerpt: Crysis has finally arrived on consoles, albeit starting with the sequel to the game that had PC gamers asking computer store salespeople, "yeah, but will it run Crysis?" The good news is that the Xbox 360 does indeed run Crysis 2, and, in fact, it's easily one of the best looking games to ever appear on the console.
Summary: Crysis 2 is the best looking first person shooter on the consoles right now, and it backs up those pretty looks with solid gameplay and a very interesting story. The sounds and the multiplayer are a bit cookie-cutter, and you’ll feel very familiar with some of the events and set-piece battles.
Peerless graphics make this violent shooter extra gritty.

Summary: Parents need to know that Crysis 2 is a violent first person shooter made all the more visceral by its bar-raising realistic graphics. Players kill hundreds of human and alien enemies using a wide array of guns and explosives, with blood and screams issuing from their victims. Our protagonist fights on the side of good, but his only means of expression is violence.
Conclusion: Crysis 2 has exceeded any and all expectations place on the title and its developer. It’s clear that Crytek set out to create an immersive and truly memorable experience. With a compelling story, some of the best visuals ever seen on a home console and the “man, myth and legend” Hans Zimmer working on the audio; it’s clear that you have an experience unlike any other.
Excerpt: But will it run Crysis? A question that has plagued PC gamers since the release of the original Crysis game. Crysis was a monolith of PC code, a game that taxed even the most overclocked, overpriced, overhyped gaming computers. Crytek decided to release a game to suit the hardware of the future, not the hardware available to lesser mortals at the time.
Excerpt: New York. The city that never sleeps, though I imagine it's hard to get some shut-eye when you're being ripped to shreds by a rampaging alien menace. And while that might sound like a horrible ordeal, spare a thought for the little pixies working overtime inside your 360, PC or PS3 to actually render the weight of Crysis 2's spectacle.
Conclusion: If you want to feel like a boss then kick some ass! Summary Good +Great guns and powers. +Brilliant multiplayer. +Tons of stuff to do. Bad -Uninteresting Storyline. -Bad friendly AI. -COD can suck it. Overall I think that this is a great game that should be on the wall of fame. I give this game an overall score of 9/10.
