Howdy (Crysis 2)
Now that we've got that situated, I guess I'll start off my blog with a review of the Crysis 2 demo. I didn't expect much when I first downloaded it a few days ago, just wanted to see how well my computer could play it. But Jesus Christ, my computer couldn't run Minecraft as well as it ran Crysis. The graphics were absolutely stunning, and it dropped me right into the action pretty much. It's pretty much COD mixed with Crackdown-all the fun of leveling your character up, but you can jump thirty feet into the air and turn invisible. I would probably pay thirty bucks just for the demo, and I had no interest in it before I noticed a friend playing it-that's how good it is. I really have no complaints with it, even the nano-suit which I thought would have a steep learning curve was easy to get used to, you can turn invisible or add extra armor at the touch of a button. After a few rounds of getting my ass kicked, I felt right at home and started climbing the leader boards. I really enjoyed the unlock system, as it gives a much more indirect path than COD because you can select which guns to unlock and really spec out to different gameplay styles. I personally prefer to grab a shotgun and stealth up myself, but every strategy seems to work with no balancing issues. So far, with just a demo to persuade me, I know that I am DEFINITELY adding this to the list of games to buy. Even if my review doesn't convince you, you can at least try the demo for free to see for yourself.
