Overall I like Crysis 2 as much (and in some respects, more than) the original Crysis, as I enjoyed the chaotic urban struggles that were apparent in Crysis 2. There were plenty of times throughout the game that I could have sworn I somehow transported to City 17 from Half Life 2, with the oppressive feel and the overall look of New York, which is a good thing, in my opinion. I did find myself wishing for more open area, more wilderness, someplace I could go and truly hunt my enemies, as opposed to the corridor-feel that some of the levels had. Overall, though, I definitely have to say that Crysis 2 stands up to the quality of it's predecessor and surpasses it in some ways. On the other hand, the ambient audio in the original Crysis was far superior to what Crysis 2 has, however, I tell myself that it's because sound travels differently in a city compared to sound out in a subtropical rain forest. For a continuation of the story that started with Crysis, Crysis 2 is a more-than-worthy successor and has helped cement the Crysis franchise as a favorite in futuristic first person shooters. I highly recommend playing this spectacular follow-up.
