Crysis 2 is such a weird game. Really enjoyed the open levels but they had adopted the hamfisted storytelling that CoD games use with loss of character control, laugh worthy plot that 14 year olds would mock and nonsensical cutscenes. Some of the stealthplay is fun but the aliens are totally boring as usual, I have no idea what Cryteks fixation on aliens is but it is always the weakest part of their games.
Exactly. You've at least got to give Ubisoft credit with Far Cry 2 for responding to the criticism of the original and removing the mutants, corny dialogue and bullshit sci-fi elements (though they made plenty of their own mistakes). Whereas Crytek responded by making exactly the same game with Crysis, except they replaced mutants with aliens.

I like Crysis 2 in many ways. The combat felt right, the graphics were obviously very good, the suit actually worked properly and the levels did offer a variety of ways to play. But the game did too much to break immersion and tried to mimic Hollywood-style summer blockbusters - it was interesting but it just didn't quite work. And Crysis 3 looks to be the same game . Crytek seem completely incapable of innovating - of stepping outside of the box, except for visuals. I know that Half-Life had sci-fi elements but the way it was delivered made it plausible - Crytek just slap in things like super-mutants and aliens with the subtlety of a hammer to the face.
