The second in the released Crysis Remastered Trilogy, for me this sequel plays very similarly to the original, and that’s both a good and a bad thing. The change in general scenery does make for some changes in tactics and your approach, trading the tropical jungle for urban cityscape, so if you were a fan of the original flow and mix of stealth and gunfights from the original Crysis you’ll likely dig the hell out of this one as well. Once again, it’s pretty impressive what they’ve managed to pull off in terms of visuals and performance on the humble Switch, considering the Crysis engine is still commonly used to benchmark high-performance PCs with how punishing it can be. Docked play is preferable, as handheld (aside from generally being less comfortable for the intensity of FPS play) still shows more signs of issues, but it is still certainly playable and looks fine. While I (seemingly against the tide) prefer the third chapter in the series, the second one has plenty of content to look through and exciting moments to savor.
