Crysis 2 Is Prettier When You Take The Time To Watch The Sun Set

YouTube user MikeX1978 likes to post videos of video games playing in slow motion. His latest, for example, shows that when you're not running around shooting at things, Crysis 2 can sure get pretty.

It's an interesting choice of music backing it up (LCD Soundsystem's "New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down"). Why? I actually finished playing it yesterday, and thought the New York aspect of the game was actually under-played somewhat. Only occasionally do you ever feel like you're actually on Manhattan, like when you recognise a building you've seen or a street you've walked past. Or when you find the head of the Statue of Liberty sitting in a park.

Other times it's just a city of corridors with obstacles and cover points scattered all over it, indistinguishable from any other destroyed urban centre you've ever fought your way across. Which is a bit of a shame, really!
