Not being familiar with the original “Crysis” nor even aware of this games ad campaigns I fell into “Crysis 2” with a neutral stance. I wasn’t a fanboy coming from the original nor was a “hater” coming from “Battlefields,” or anyone’s, camp. With my eyes wide open I received “Crysis 2” with open arms. The campaign despite its flaws still carries some fantastic moments and is paced really well. If it weren’t for the glitches the campaign itself would have been worth the full retail price but, alas, Crytek messed up. Concerning the MP, if you’ve played “CoD” you’ve played “Crysis 2” so, in my opinion the MP alone really isn’t worth the coin given how unoriginal it is. Despite these two points I have suggested to friends and fellow gamers to give “Crysis 2” a try simply because when one combines the two flawed halves of the campaign and multiplayer one does find a good game, in fact, one finds a game that is still better than a lot of the utter tosh that is out there now. While “Crysis 2” is still a good game with a few flaws perhaps its biggest issue lies with its base of players. How is it that “Halo 3” is still in the top ten of Xbox Live Activity while “Crysis 2” isn’t even in the top twenty anymore?

Final Thought: It’s a good game, worth the “used game” price I paid (i.e. £ 35), some nagging flaws one doesn’t find in similar games (e.g. “Halo’s” and “Gear’s” campaigns and “CoD’s” multiplayer) so, if you’ve got those titles you should think a while before buying this one.
