I own the first Crysis but I never got very far with it. The traditional question of “will it run Crysis” is the benchmark for how powerful a computer is for a good reason. My computer could RUN Crysis but the frame rate and graphics setting were mid range at best. To be honest though, and this will anger many an uber nerd, the lack of an excellent control scheme is what turned me off the most. I’ll freely admit that maybe I’m just terrible, but managing the five or so state of suit powers never came that quickly to me. Coupled with me being sad that I knew the game could look better and I just moved on. Crysis 2 promised to solve both of those problems before I even purchased the game. Early buzz had it as the best looking game ever released on a console. And I’m intimately familiar with an Xbox 360 controller (not in the way you think, pervs). Crysis 2 is not a perfect game by any means, but it’s a breath of fresh air in many ways amid the Call of Duty themed world we gamers live in now. CoD is a fine game, but anybody looking for some variety in their gaming should think about Crysis 2. The nanosuit gets a nomination for item of the year in gaming (I’m gonna have to write that down and have an award…).
