    Top 3 FPS ever

    Posted

    When I decided to play this game, I had heard of Crysis before, but have never played it. I didn't really hear much about the quality of the game, but just how incredible the graphics were, and how you had to have the top of the line computer to run it. I was never a PC gamer, but I jumped at the opportunity to play it when it came to the consoles. Once I picked it up, I definitely saw what all the hype was about. It is a game that has multiple ways to complete almost any objective, and that lets you choose how you want to play. Graphics: Simply put, these are the best graphics any console has ever seen. I played it on the 360, and have yet to see any game even compare to the quality of this game. If you are a gamer that cares a lot about graphics, you can not go wrong with this game. Story: The story is interesting and confusing at the same time. You start as a silent protagonist who is with his army unit, and are on a way to a mission, but nobody knows what the mission is. After a little speculation of what the mission entails, your ship is attacked by aliens before you get there. Your entire unit is massacred, and you are left stranded in some large body of water. A man in a metallic suit appears while you are at the verge of blacking out, and he is able to fight off the alien ship and pull you to shore. When you wake up, you find yourself in the metallic suit the stranger was wearing, and the stranger dead on the ground next to you. The suit activates a piece of memory footage, and shows the stranger telling you how he has become infected as he puts the suit on you. He also tells you that you are the last hope before he kills himself. As soon as you become aware of your surroundings, you are contacted through the suit by a man who mistakes you for the stranger, and starts instructing you to meet up with him. Immediately after, you are attacked by members of the military. From there you just try to get to the man who has contacted you while fighting your way through the military and an alien invasion. The story itself is pretty confusing, but I think it is meant to be that way. You really don't know what's going on or why the majority of the time, but neither does you character, so it works out. I just wish the main character wasn't silent, so you could hear what he thinks about what is going on. Gameplay: Just wow. When I said that there were multiple ways to play, I wasn't kidding. The mysterious suit that the stranger gave you gives you incredible powers to use. The suit itself will have an energy meter, that will be drained when you use one of the various abilities that it has to offer. The run command as well as the super jump are two of the more basic abilities, but they still drain the suit energy. The suit also gives you the ability to use cloak, essentially turning you invisible to enemies that have not already detected you. This is very useful for playing a stealth style throughout the game, or just remaining undetected until you can get to a better location for fighting. You also have the "maximum armor" ability with the suit. This ability lets you take massive amount of damage like falling from the roof of a building, taking a round from a tank, or just taking a bunch of bullets. There are a few other you will run into while in the midst of combat and not really think twice how awesome they truly are, like the ability to eliminated recoil from firing your gun. While it may not sound like much, it helps a lot when taking out enemies from a distance while minimizing the waste of ammo. When you first enter an area, you will usual have "tactical options available". You are able to view these tactics by pulling down your visor, and taking a look around the environment. This visor will show you what options you have such as a possible location to flank your enemies, avoid your enemies altogether, or to just mark enemies and ammo on your mini map so you are not taken by surprise. "Nanovision" is also another visor you are able to equip, and it basically acts as a heat detector, which lets you view enemies easier when they are somewhat camouflaged or hiding. Another cool feature this game offers is the ability to customize your weaponry in the go. You just tap "select" and you are able to change if you have a silencer, what the secondary attachment is, as well as what type of sights/scope you want to equip. This allows you to go from all out close quarters combat to long range stealth combat in a matter of seconds. Holding "select" will instead bring up the menu that will allow you to customize your Nanosuit. These abilities include stuff like reducing the amount of energy used when running or doing a super-jump, or being able to see the path of bullets that are being shot at you, or being able to see the path that enemies are currently walking on. They way to upgrade these abilities are to kill aliens pick up the items that they drop. Early on you will not earn to many, but by half way through the game you will have more than plenty if you are playing with a combat style. Overall: This game is amazing. If you try and play it like a traditional FPS you will fail. That is how I was first playing when I started this game, but as I became more familiar with the Nanosuit and its abilities, I started to make it through the levels much easier. The ability to switch up play styles is also very helpful. I found myself using the "maximum armor" a lot of the time and just tanking my way through enemies, though there were times where I found myself using stealth to avoid a huge fight. Easily one of the best single player FPS I have ever experienced. I will say that I did not get a chance to try multiplayer yet, but from what I have heard it is equally amazing.

    Having played the First 2 games in the Crysis Series I have to say they out did themselves. Campagin: Just like the First games Crysis 2 has the sandbox design to it which makes the gameplay dynamic and just as much fun to play the 2nd time through as the first time through the game. The AI are very impressive and I have seen almost no bugs in the game affecting the AI. Their Flanking Tactics, search patterns, persistence to kill you, ability to maneuver around the map and aim well make them a fun challenge to fight. I really enjoyed the suit modes such as Nano Vision, and the tactical Visor which added to the use of tactics in the game. Map designs were beautifully done, and very detailed. I was overwhelmed at moments at the massive level of detail and all the things going on at once. the element of Physics and being able to throw and kick objects added great fun to the game.The Story line was very well developed and established great characters. Over all It was one best campaigns I have played on a First person shooter. it takes what you might think is a mediocre story line and turns it into a Exciting, sad, interesting, amazingly synced experience from begging to end. and it also offered some rewards for the people that played the first 2 games Which made it more enjoyable for me. Did I mention the graphics?... well you get the point :) Multiplayer: Generally a fast paced multi player that I would describe as a combination between Call of Duty, Battlefield, and halo but that doesn't mean it isn't unique. the Suit functions are what makes this game stand out. I think anyone that has played the game would agree the Cloak makes things far different and interesting. The weapons, Customizations on them, and enhancements on Nano suit lets everyone have their own play stile. Map designs are the biggest Highlight of this game. There are so many ways to get somewhere in the maps, and the maps are perfect in my opinion. I also love how you can grab onto any ledges. to get somewhere. the Map designs, and nano suit functions make for very chaotic but thrilling gameplay, so sticking with your team will generally improve your chances of winning. I don't find the kill streaks over powered as much as they are dang fun to use when you get them. campaign: 10/10 Multiplayer: 8/10

    Crysis 2 is a very great, fun, and amusing game to play. By far this is the best multiplayer experience I have ever had. The game has a great storyline and much more. There isn't a huge variety of guns, but it doesn't really matter because the guns are really good, you need to know how to use the guns in order to be good (if your not very good you will get angry). The guns can have attachments (they're really cool). There are "perks" for the nanosuit that can help you throughout the multiplayer. The graphics are excellent in this game, better than any other game I've played. This game achieved the highest point of xbox history. This has been the game I have been searching for. I have finally found the game that is perfect (by my standards anyway)!!! Get this game!! P.S. Don't judge the game by watching it (youtube), you have to try it for yourself in order to say you like it or not. YOU WILL LOVE THIS GAME THOUGH!!!! I LOVE YOU CRYTEK AND CRYSIS 2!!!

    I was originally deciding between Homefront and Crysis 2. I started to get really sick of Black Ops so I stopped by my local Gamestop and gave this game a shot. Difficulty 5* - Even though the controls are pretty much identical to CoD, I still find that this game is hard to be good at. It isn't one of those games where I can just start playing any CoD or Halo and be the best. Responsiveness 5* - I believe this game is only 30 FPS but that doesn't even matter because the sensitivity seems fluent and smooth. Graphics 5* - Although they may not look as good as dual graphic cards on someones $3000 PC, this game has better graphics than any other game I played. Fun 5* - This game so far has not gotten boring for me. I've played 13 hours already and I'm only a level 20. The perks or loadouts or whatever they are seem to be fun to upgrade and theres definitely some guns I see myself using 24/7. Cough Cough Feline and Scar

    Crysis 2 is a visually stunning first person shooter that starts you off as the marine Alcatraz. As disaster strikes you appear to be left for dead along with your fellow marines. You are saved by Prophet of the original Crysis and subjected to the life he once had and now have to save the city of NY. Now this is only the beginning of what is Crysis 2. With the ability of cloak giving you brief invisibility or armor mode making you seem like a walking talk, your options of how to play the game is your choice. This also comes into affect with silenced weapons, diverted paths like sewer tunnels and rooftops, and much more. Unlike some shooters, Crysis 2 has a campaign of decent length that really meshes well as you come to understand just what Crysis is all about. The multiplayer is almost like a merge of fast paced halo reach with COD weaponry and controls. To top it all of your nanosuit has specific upgrade functions to fit your individual play style.

    first off im start with WOOOW this game is just insane graphics are the best ive seen hands down. the game play is smoooooth and fun its a mix of call of duty n halo but mixed just perfect. multiplayer is great the maps are just awesome. perk system takes awhile to get use to n so does the killstreaks. it plays just like call of duty same button layout and every thing except for the right and left bumper those are used for ur cloaking or ur armor witch is sooo coool u kinda have to get use to switching them on and off because u have to conserve your nano suits energy the less energy u have the easier it is for a enemy to kill u. another cool feature is that ur nano suit forms to ur style of game play. the multiplayer is just a huge plus the singleplayer takes a while to pick up and actually start having fun storyline is pretty cool overall a reaally goood game worth the money. this game is one of the better fps of this year sicne blackops n homefront where both HUUUUUUUGGGGGGEEEEEE disapointments!!!

    Outstanding Game

    Making a game that was meant for PC wasn't an easy task, but developers at Crytek managed to pull on top and create a game which could be ran on consoles. Crysis 2 looks and performs great, one of the best graphic games, if not the best on Xbox 360. The Campaign is interesting and long, the AI seem a little strange at some points, but thats a minor flaw. The game has a variety of weapons with the option to create a class with your own personal load out. The controls in this game ressemble Call of Duty's so you don't have to worry about learning the controls if you're familiar with the COD series. Overall this game is a must buy if you're into first person shooters even if you're not buy it anyway you won't be disappointed.

    I would reccommend this game to anyone who has played shooter games before such as killzone 3 or any call of duty game because the difficulty is impressive even for an experienced gamer, the game always responds( I have not had any trouble at all with it lagging or anything), the graphics are good, and the game will continue to keep you interested; it is very fun. The only reason I would not recommend this to a first time shooter gamer is becasue of the difficulty. The game does ask you at the beginning if you would like to play recruit difficulty, for beginners, but the game can still be very challenging at times. I still recommend this to anyone with experience though.

    The Truth

    slmshade

    This game is amazing. It surpasses any graphics I have seen yet on an aging console. The game is very well rounded. The vehicles, guns and storyline is amazing on this game. The game starts out very slow on campaign mode and will bore you sick for about 2 hours. Then the game will start to pickup and glue you to your seat. The AI can be crazy at times during campaign mode too but this is very minor. I saved the best for last. The multiplayer rocks. The game modes are awesome in this game. The weapon unlocks and upgrades are superb. The multiplayer is very fast paced and aggressive. If you buy this game you will not be disappointed.

    I had been wanting to get this game for a while and now I am glad that I did. The graphics are incredible with stunning environments and sounds. The games storyline is difficult to understand right away but as you get farther it makes sense. Swearing doesn't come around until you interact with the Marines/C.E.L.L. who swear profusely. Not really a whole lot of blood except when you get a headshot but their head remains intact. Some enemies are hard to kill so using the same strategy over and over again won't work which makes you think differently. Overall the game is Great. I will note that I do not recommend this game for kids under 15.

    The best graphics + awesome multiplayer = Crysis 2

    Posted
    TruthAndReconciliation

    Crysis 2, by far has the best graphics of any game to date. It is a cross between Halo and Call of Duty. The campaign is great, but the game shines in multiplayer with its unlock system, team based gameplay, and insane graphics. If you want another fps that you will play over and over again, this is the game for you.

    I have wanted to play this game since it was released but was skeptical since I'm not the biggest shooter fan. I was pleasantly surprised as this is by far one of the best looking and action packed games I've ever played. All the gadgets make you feel like your truly a futuristic super soldier.
