Without a doubt we would've liked Crysis 2 to support DX11 at launch, but there are a few advantages to using DX9, the most important of which is that the pool of PC gamers that run somewhat dated hardware will be able to enjoy the game. Three year-ol...

When Crytek announced Crysis 2 back in June 2009 at E3, it's needless to say there was quite a large reaction, whether it was a good reaction, or one of a sceptic – it was pretty large.It had quite a challenge to live up to, as Crysis was regarded as one...

By now, if you follow these things, you probably know the sordid story of DirectX 11 support in Crysis 2. Developer Crytek, a PC favorite, decided to expand into consoles with this latest release, which caused PC gamers to fear that the system-punishing...

I remember when the first Crysis game was announced back in 2007. That was the first time I actually spec’d and built a new PC specifically for one game, and then the game came out and my new system barely ran. It took a few more upgrades over the...

It was a tough act to follow, but Crytek's new high-def engine makes alien-shattered New York look jaw-droppingly awesome - and the new Nanosuit abilities have expanded the game's range of fighting possibilities. Crysis 2 could be the next benchmark...

After taking a closer look at the long anticipated Crysis 2 and taking the time to beat the campaign as well as dwell in the realm of multiplayer, we have come to appreciate the new and refined version of Crysis. Packed with constant action without a...

Four years after its initial release, meme-creating "But will it run Crysis?" still has the power to bring bleeding-edge gaming PCs to their knees, crying. So how has Crytek managed to get Crysis 2 running in 3D on a six year old Xbox 360? When...

It isn’t such a technical leap forward as the first game, but Crysis 2 ups the ante with its action-packed gameplay....

Crysis 2 is a little bit like the proverbial New Zealand leaky home. It looks modern and rich from the outside; there’s a new car in the garage and the kitchen gleams through the large lounge window. But deep inside its walls there is a cold damp, one that will become increasingly detrimental the...

We had high expectations from the sequel to Crysis and Crysis 2 did not disappoint us. It took the original formula of the first game and improved it considerably, and unlike most other sequels, doesn't just offer you more of what you saw before. The...

You can take Crysis out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of Crysis. For those worried that Crysis 2’s city-slicking setting would turn it into a cramped corridor crawl, go ahead and activate strength mode, grab your fears, and ragdoll...

Crysis 2 is an energetic shooter and a worthy sequel to the original PC exclusive. The breadth of the levels may have been reduced but the gameplay depth remains. It includes more vertical space in some surprisingly open levels. Action is packaged...

Even with so many FPS games ­available, Crysis 2 manages to stand out as an excellent, innovative and ultimately enjoyable shooter thanks to its iconic Nanosuit. THE BIG APPLE: The New York of Crysis 2 boasts some really impressive scenery even...

While PC versions of games influenced by consoles are often criticised as not being fully optimised, this certainly isn’t the case here and Crytek has obviously made quite an effort to optimise the PC version of CryENGINE 3 down to the last...

BE AGGRESSIVE. BE HAZARDOUS. BE FEARLESS.Smoke plumes rise into the sky. The streets are collapsed and skyscrapers are burning. It’s 2023 and New York is in decay. An alien virus has decimated the local population and tremors constantly terrorize the...

Crysis was a game well known for its visuals as well as its open ended gameplay. As a marine strapped in a million dollar Nanosuit on a fictitious island, players could analyze and approach an enemy encounter any way they wanted to - be it will...

Crysis 2 shines and apart from its baffling and bizzare problems encountered, it is definitely a worthy title to look out for its gameplay and replayability value. There are plenty of details to look out for in the single-player campaign and the...

I appreciate shooters that make me feel powerful. Yes, most games ultimately give you the control that you need to feel this way, but more often than not, that isn't really the case. In the majority of shooters, the only powers your character has lay...
