Submitted by on Wednesday, 16 February 20118 Comments

crysis 2 billboard image 3 656x369 570x320 The story of Crysis 2   The trailerWar is a part of who we are. Humans have been fighting since the dawn of time.

The unfortunate reality is that despite our wealth of resources and greater understanding of those around us war is just as if not more prevalent in societies around the globe today as it was in the past.

In this age one often wonders why we fight? Aliens. That’s why.

Crysis 2 will be a  new experience for most of us. After all unless you are also a PC gamer with a considerable rig you have likely never played the original.

Crysis is considered a recent high-water mark in terms of graphical capabilities. It is a game that is lauded to this day for pushing the visual limits of a video game. The story on the other hand wasn’t much to write home about.

Although this trailer doesn’t show much at all in the way of gameplay it does offer the structure of what could end up being an entertaining  narrative.

Unlike the first game which took place on a faceless island, Crysis 2 is situated in New York City’s Manhattan Island. It may appear to be a small change but it will give the game a sense of weight.

As you no doubt have seen already Crysis 2 will have gamers pitted up against an alien life form that has burrowed up from the beneath the earth’s crust.

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: one man stands in between these aliens and the extinction of humanity.

Ok so maybe this isn’t looking like a very clever story and maybe an incredibly deep story isn’t what we should necessarily expect from Crysis 2 but the story can be tailored to fit the gameplay.

If the plot pushes the game forward in a way that incites the player to continue playing then maybe it has done its job.

What do you think of Crysis 2? Does the story matter much to you if the gameplay is outstanding?
