playing this game.....and all i can say, compared to the original, this one is a MAJOR disappointment.....the AI is buggy...the soldiers get stuck behind obstacles, keep walking in the same place and arent half as smart as the AI in the original......the choppers are super easy to take down and unlike the super menace the choppers were in the original.....its quite easy even on the hard setting and maximum speed is no longer an ability u can activate.....the suit now only has 2 powers......cloak and maximum armor.....speed is there but u just have to press the LS to activate it.....i guess Crytek was so busy making this game look pretty and sound super cool that they totally forgot about gameplay.....
as the story goes......i think the story of Crysis was much better and the city isnt as great a 'tactical' place as the jungle was......u have this visor that lets u analyze the environment and gives u 'tactical' options and highlight ammo crates etc but the options are very limited and include such useless options as 'Explore', 'Ledge grab' 'Stealth' but there is nothing that allows u to freely combine the powers of the nanosuit for awesome kills....
cant say anything about the multiplayer.....coz havent played it......
compare it to the original and its a disappointment but i think it will still score an 8 or 8.5......

Honestly, everything you said could apply to the first one, at least through my experience. It looked breath takingly beautiful, but all Crytek games have retarded AI's(none as much as Farcry, though, where all of the enemies have the common sense of running straight into your bullets, but can snipe you from the other side of the island), are fairly easy to finish. Pity about the suit powers, thoug, even though I confess that I never really used any of the powers except the armor and invisibility unless the game specifically asked me to use something else.

I was extremely disappointed with the multiplayer demo; it seemed like Call of Duty with a suit. It is a shame because the first Crysis had decent multiplayer with Crysis Wars. Singleplayer was hit or miss.

Hey, he's back. And by he I mean Blood-Omen. I am happy now.
What comes out tomorrow? Anything good that I should rush to get?

MP demo felt Call of Duty-ified except for the fact that everyone's invisible.
