I've been keen to play Crysis 2. I enjoyed the original. Bought what was (at the time) a mega new desktop to play it. But being more of a console gamer (on the whole) I'm not necessarily one of those people who feel betrayed by Crytek's decision to go multiplatform with the franchise - on the contrary, I was keen to see what could be achieved with their engine on home consoles.
To be perfectly honest, I haven't had much time to get to grips with the game - roughly ten minutes in total - but even that was enough to showcase just how pretty the game is. Crytek has done a great job of squeezing extra juice out of the PS3/360, and it's great to be playing a shooter that wasn't developed on the Unreal 3 engine for a change.
But I'm more keen to hear what you guys think. PC guys, how do you feel about the game's move towards a more linear, closed off design? Console guys - how do you feel about jumping head first into a new series? Everyone in between - how are you finding the game itself?
Once my 3DS fever has cooled down a bit, I intend to play through Crysis 2, despite my shooter fatigue. I've passed on both Homefront and Killzone 3, but something about Crysis 2 has inspired me to give it a shot.
