Everybody likes having souvenirs of the trips they’ve taken, even if that trip is through a hellish, alien infested New York City. Thankfully there are 18 different New York City themed souvenirs that are scattered throughout Crysis 2 that you can nab for the Tourist Achievement / Trophy. They’ll also help you remember all those precious moments you spent tearing through the City that never sleeps.

Somehow, through technical sorcery by the hands of Crytek’s super-nerds, Crysis 2 is not only possibly the most amazing-looking console game ever, but it even does so without creating a reality-sucking singularity inside your PS3 or 360. It looks even better on PC, but whether it will stutter like Colin Firth depends on your machine’s muscle. We’ve played all three versions of the game, but it’s hard to say how the average PC will handle it since we played on a mysteriously-specced mega-machine, but wow was it crisp and luscious. So Cryisis 2, any way you play it, looks stunning in 2D. But hold your nanosuit-clad horses, because Crytek’s “how the heck did they do that” CryEngine 3 also pulls off 3D so near-flawlessly we still can’t believe it works the way it does…

I decided to throw together a bit of video (below) from my first experiment with the Crysis 2 demo recently made available via Steam. It has some of the video you see when the demo first loads and some gameplay video. If the demo is any indicator the game will be well worth buying in my opinion.
I was a bit surprised to see controlling the nano suit is different than it was in the first Crysis and after quickly learning the new keys it became obvious it is much better this way. Hitting a single key to enable stealth mode alone is a huge improvement if you ask me.
Great graphics and lots of improvements have me convinced I need to add it to my list.
Looks like Crytek’s planning to pull a nanomechanically-engineered hat trick with its multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 — it’s out already on 360, it’s coming to PC on March 1, and according to the game’s latest official trailer (posted after the jump), the demo is “coming soon” to the PS3 as well.
We’ve contacted EA to get a more specific timeframe for the demo’s arrival. For now, check out the video after the jump to see exactly how the game looks on Sony’s home console. Actually, you could just go read the back-and-forth in these YouTube comments between PS3 and 360 fanboys — it’s just as entertaining as the trailer itself.
Check out this new “Crysis 2: Multiplayer Demo Tutorial” video. Wow.
If there is one thing I liked most about the first Crysis it was the gorgeous graphics. (There is a quick video I took of the graphics in the first Crysis on the videos page.) Looking to me like Crysis 2 will have definite improvements on that aspect.
Looks like there are some definite improvements in other areas as well. I think I might have to add this one to my list of must haves.
