Crisis 2 in the video game industry
15 February 2014 | by user-924-578843See all my reviews

After installing Crysis 2 I normally go to the settings graphics, where I waited two surprises.

Surprise number one - the graphics settings: 1. good graphics 2 . maximum graphics 3 . extreme graphics 4 . burn computer

Surprise number 2 - the graphics settings can not be adjusted. "Setup 3D" is present, but it is not active. I regarded it as "Fuff! We have two years of this schedule sculptured. Come and check it out. "

Very reluctant to kill people, while we fought with aliens. Me tried to use, and I saw on their insolent persons they will use me and throw out. But the story did not give options, and the main character posed as Gordon Freeman, simultaneously collecting other people's badges and reading correspondence of Aunt Tara with Uncle Hardgriv. I trusted the one person who one third of the game led me through enemy ambushes.

Developers have tried to steal, oh, take something of the best games of the genre. From HALO took indication suit and the concept of monsters. From Half-Life 2 took alien turret and urban destruction. True invisibility in full (including FPS) - their innovation. Also in the scene is used to receive, "Go do it, otherwise you will not pass". For example, at the end of the game, in the spore generator gate will not open until you kill monsters in front of them. Had to cut all .

Separately say about glitches. Can look in the internet - door is closed, the character freezes, the NPC does not do what they should. Usually helps to restart the level, but not always.

Along with other fashion features done in Crysis 2 added delayed cursor. Percentage of not the strongest in the world of computers among gamers represent? So all of them due to lack of power this feature is enhanced. Buffeting the cursor so strong, that you can forget of fast mouse action.

Toward the middle of the game know that the suit is not so cool. No matter how hard you try, you still going several times on the verge of death. In general, "The suit helps those who help themselves".

Corridor path of game 7 out of 10. In the first part of the sandbox were bigger.

So, what we have: Acceptable schedule (yes, I saw this game on the highest setting) and resource consumption at the level of program for performance testing. Head of Crytek Cevat Yerli "Graphics, whether it's lighting or shadows, puts you in a different emotional context and drives the immersion, and immersion is effectively the number one thing we can use to help you buy into the world." Ie we must immerse themselves in the atmosphere of delusional story, uncalled nary interest, and look at the downtrodden memory space through raw HDR.

From the pros: 1. I stopped several times to admire Manhattan. 2. intelligent monsters. Pursue the enemy, and not leave their comrades in trouble. 3. opportunity to progress through the game in stealth mode.
