The story

This section tells the history of the world of Crysis 2

The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens have returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind, starting by trying to rip the heart out of Earth’s most iconic city. In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city’s myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city’s systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you’ve never seen it before. Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen. One man will inherit that means to survive. One supersoldier, wielding the combat enhancement technology of the future with Nanosuit 2, will make the last stand to save humanity from destruction in the urban jungle that is New York City.

Crysis 2 - game review

The review was based on the PC version.

If someone had told me two months ago that I would be raving about the second Crysis game, I would have tapped my forehead. It took me over three years to complete the "one" - I tried it many times, but always gave it up after a few hours of fun. Yes, I liked this spectacular visual setting, which, according to some, is unmatched to this day, I appreciated this great freedom - a trademark of all games from the German studio - but the island of Lingshan was not able to enchant me enough for me to visit it to see the credits. I am ashamed to admit that I did not complete the first Crysis until January this year, and this time - surprisingly! - It was quite a pleasant experience, I did not believe that the "two" who were coming with great steps would be able to captivate me.

How wrong I was! Today, when I am already in contact with the second Crysis , I can honestly say: this is one of the best shooters I have had the opportunity to test in recent years. At the beginning, it deals a monstrously hard blow between the eyes, and when you try to shake it off, it grabs you by the throat and does not release it until the very end. Stunning rollercoaster ride where the brakes went off. This is what Crysis 2 is all about.

The Crytek product is very loosely related to its predecessors, which probably forced the appearance of games on consoles - the "two" practically in no way refers to the events that took place on the island of Lingshan, so it is not known what happened to Nomad and A psycho after disembarking a sinking aircraft carrier. Fans of the original must be informed that three long years have passed since those memorable events, and during this time the alien plague has spread to almost all corners of the globe.

The main character of the new game is a maritime soldier nicknamed Alcatraz, who, together with his squadmates, arrives in New York by submarine. The world-famous metropolis is going through a hard time. After the attack of a foreign virus, all the inhabitants of the Big Apple were forcibly evacuated, and the deserted streets of Manhattan were taken over by the paramilitary organization CELL, maintained by Crynet. Somewhere in the ruined city, Nathan Gould is hiding and it is him that the marines gathered in the ship are going to find. The American army suspects that the man has information that could help defeat the Cepids - an alien civilization known from the first installment of the series. However, as it happens in life, the mission gets complicated quickly. The aliens sink the boat and then eliminate almost all the soldiers who managed to reach the surface. Almost, because Alcatraz is somehow avoiding death. After the attack, he can barely breathe, but surprisingly, he is alive.

The Exhausted soldier is found by the Prophet - the commander of the Raptor group, known from the prototype, who transported himself from the tropics to New York in an unspecified way at the beginning. The commando offers the injured his exoskeleton and asks him to continue the mission. With nothing better to do, Alcatraz sets out to find Nathan Gould, and so begins his great adventure. During it, he fights not only with aliens attacking the metropolis, but also with the CELL unit. Crynet makes every effort to get the Prophet, and the new owner of the nanosuit, running around the city, resembles him.

The creators of the second Crysis put much more emphasis on the story and it must be honestly admitted that it was a good game for the game, because although the story itself is not outstanding, it is more closely related to the actual gameplay, making it much more attractive. There is a clear shift towards the Call of Duty series, because the new game is built on a series of simpler, less complicated, but very diverse tasks. Take one of the initial missions in which we must investigate a crashed spacecraft as an example. First, we check the capsules scattered around, then we look for a way to get to the wreckage, then we take the required samples and finally go outside. All this takes only a few minutes.

The change in the style of gameplay was, of course, meant to prevent the user from feeling bored while passing the next levels, which, according to many, was one of the biggest drawbacks of the original. The procedure was clearly successful, because the "two" does not seem to be a monotonous game, on the contrary - there is something going on all the time. The authors not only filled their work with a fast-paced action, but also packed it with a large number of scripts, thanks to which we witness programmed, but extremely effective events. Helicopters and spaceships flying low overhead, uneven clashes between Cepids and CELL soldiers, and finally a lot of attractions related to the explored surroundings, such as an earthquake or skyscrapers falling down in front of our eyes - the spectacle of this game cannot be denied.

The exchange of fire in the new Crysis is pure poetry - the arsenal is so diverse that each gun is shot differently, in addition, it can be improved, which also translates into the experience of combat. The creators put a lot of effort to make the fire smooth and juicy - compared to the plastic Homefront released a week ago, the change to the plus is colossal. The game offers several types of extermination measures, ranging from pistols, through shotguns and machine guns, to rocket launchers and energy cannons. In addition, there are grenades and C4 explosives that can be placed anywhere, e.g. under an enemy vehicle, and detonated remotely. To make the fight more attractive, the Germans also attempted a simple cover system, which works in a similar way as the one used in Call of Juarez: Blood Ties . After reaching the obstacle, Alcatraz raises his weapon from all edges of the cover and conducts fire freely, avoiding enemy projectiles. However, the authors implemented some limitations here. Not every object is considered a cover by the program, in addition, in order for the hero to lean out, you need to press an additional button. In the end, I liked the Poles' solution more, but it is also not bad.

Graphically new Crysis crushes. As previously announced, the Crytek product works only in DirectX 9 (support for "eleven" is supposed to be made available via a patch), but it is difficult to find any reason to complain. Fantastic warm colors in combination with well-designed and memorable locations, nice character models, additionally with lots of fireworks gives a phenomenal end result - many games would like to look as good in the "nine" as the work of our neighbors from the western border. Applause is also due to the Germans for creating the most beautiful virtual New York in history - maybe not as faithful as in Grand Theft Auto IV , but beautifully presented. Of course, the creators pressed many characteristic buildings in this metropolis into the maps, so there is something to look at.

Music? Lick your fingers. Borislav Slavov and Tillman Sillescu did a great job, I haven't heard such an excellent soundtrack for a long time. Hans Zimmer's piece, which appears in three different versions of the game, also deserves attention, but it cannot be denied that it is the two men mentioned above that deserve the greatest applause. The soundtrack is just wonderful. However, I did not like the Polish version very much. I was especially irritated by the suit - listening to the same message about turning on camouflage for the 50th time, I wanted to reinstall the product. The rest of the voices are of very different levels, surprisingly, I liked the curses that sound natural and convincing in the second Crysis .
