Our review of Crysis 2, the 2011 sequel to 2007’s benchmark PC shooter. It’s…a slow-motion train wreck of not-nearly-epic-enough proportions, no matter what Hans Zimmer’s music tries to tell you. Part the 2nd of a series we’re still calling The Downfall of the First-Person Shooter.
In this episode, we continue our fight through the outskirts of Boletarian Palace, play chicken with dragons, lose, then win, and stay winning in the face the demon Phalanx…insofar as such a thing can be said to have a face.
In this episode, we breach the gates of Boletarian Palace and discuss how this first level both encourages and suppresses the ever-present urge to Rage Quit…aww, crap – that should’ve been this episode’s title, shouldn’t it?
