Neatly Embossed: Crysis 2


Mysteriously, I've been idly replaying the original Crysis over the past few weeks, and there a bits a pieces in there that make me genuinely excited for the sequel. The whole port-attack level is lovely, and the first fight vs tanks in the little village is one of those perfect open-ended FPS arena moments. Of course there are other habits that I hope - but don't expect - CryTek to drop, such as that first-person cutscene stuff, or the suit not being quite powerful enough to be a full on power fantasy indulgence. But anyway, I'd been meaning to post this newer trailer, because it's got a lot more actual combat in it and, despite the horrible quick-cut editing style of it, there's some interesting scenes, such as a skyscraper coming down, and a fight with some kind of boss robot. You might say boss robots aren't all that new or interesting, I say there should be an FPS equivalent of Warning Forever.
