The highly anticipated shooter isn’t due out on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC until the end of this month, but there are already a few reviews for Crysis 2 which have been published online. Since there is still an emargo on the online reviews, these ones we have are taken from magazines.
First of all, you can rest assured if you were worrying that this game would be a flop, as both the Official Xbox Magazine and the Official PlayStation Magazine have given the game great scores, with OXM giving Crysis 2 a 9/10, and the OPM giving Crytek’s latest shooter an 8/10.
Official PlayStation Magazine included the following quotes, which have been provided courtesy of CVG: “excellent – technically strong, visually outstanding and full of welcome fresh ideas.”
Meanwhile, the Official Xbox Magazine has praised the multiplayer portion in the game, saying that it was the turning point in giving the game a good score, saying that gamers will enjoy ”some of the most exciting, angry and satisfying action you’ll ever have”.
Unfortunately, the only way you can read these reviews is by picking up a copy of either edition, but if some scans of the review get uploaded, we’ll let you know as soon as possible. Are you happy that this game has been praised after such a long development time? Are you now planning to pick up this game on launch or are you still worried about the gameplay after spending time with the beta and demo?
Crysis 2 looks like a solid addition to your collection from where we’re standing.
