I think it's a mistake to set Crysis 2 in New York. That place has been over used and this make it more Hollywood like than something original. Korea setting was better in my view and this seems like a Transformers film and catering more to the console drones.

Will see though but from the look of it, I'm not very excited at all really.

That gives the impression there will be a lot of open space, hopefully it won't be too linear.

Other than that...it just didn't do much for me. It's like they were going for a "One of the few, the proud" USMC type commercials.

The USMC can pull it off, this didn't.

Still going to buy it though....

I was thinking of more on the lines of "Be Strong. Army Strong."....

Gotta agree. Looks like another Killzone/Resistance/CoD to me. Sure you got the suit powers but that's old news after 2 games, unless they added a few new cool things to it.

This and Test Drive Unlimited 2 are both games I was highly looking forward to but after seeing(playing) what they are, I got totally not interested.

DNF and Rage are my only hope Obi Wan.

Hmm yes, looking like Resistance/Killzone/CoD. Not very happy about that, but hopefully it's still a lot of fun and not too consolized.

Kinda' disappointing to be honest. I mean, Crysis set the standard for ultimate graphics. This seems to take a step back. Even in 720p it seemed like low res-textures were everywhere.

I do like how it seems you can do more in the suit. Looks like your character will be much more "athletic" and maneuvarable. Should make for a great combination with the suit's powers.

Really curious how it ties in with the first game.

Over all seems underwhelming. It almost feels like this one will have next to nothing in common with the first, like they're pretending the first never happened and starting all over again with this one... only allowing consoles to partake. I really hope this isn't a console game first. Crysis was a PC exclusive and it'd be nice if their focus was on the PC platform.

Early on in the trailer where he was picking off targets, the jagged digital thumbstick like movements when aiming really grated. Why would they use a gamepad to make a trailer if it makes the movement look androgynously awkward?

Besides that I have to agree the textures look noticably bad in places, not that the original was always perfect in that regard. It looks good technically, just seems as though they need to do more artistically to hide the flaws. Something PC devs are notoriously bad at.

Clearly it's aimed at consoles this time, since they can get more money.
