Crysis 2 continues to amaze
|NEWS - VIDEOGAME NEWS|
Enjoy your multi-player domination Call of Duty: Black Ops, because, from the look of this video, it won't last long...
I'm an excitable sort of guy; as many of you may know if you have read my previous articles. It doesn't take much to set my pulse racing and my fingers flying, eagerly writing up the latest bit of news and gossip from within the videogame community. However, I can honestly say that, with the exception of the recent Duke Nukem trailer, I have never been this excited merely from watching a video.
Crysis 2 has been a game on my radar for some time now. Its extravagant promises and breathtaking graphics have gained both Crysis 2 and its developers Crytek some serious attention and, with Crytek claiming that the game will be "the best FPS game ever, setting the graphical benchmark on all three platforms", it's easy to see why. Still, how many games have promised so much - filling our heads with unreachable goals and visions of euphoric gaming - only for the end product to be distinctly lacking when analysed alongside its marketing spiel?
However, after watching the following trailer a total of seven times now, I honestly believe everything Crytek has said to date:
There really is little that needs to be said after this viewing. The graphics look immaculate; the gameplay looks infectious; and the environment looks fully responsive - what more can you ask for? Interestingly, it is the game's single-player campaign that Crytek pride themselves on. Consider this for a moment - if Crytek pride themselves on the game's single-player mode, and yet this is what they have 'thrown together' for a multi-player adventure... just how good is this game going to be? I mean come on, unless it spat £5 out of the console's disc-tray everytime you ejected it, this game is as close to perfection as you're ever going to get. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention; Crysis 2 is due to be the first FPS available in true stereoscopic 3D on all three platforms. You know, sometimes "I told you so" just isn't enough...
