So this game was basically my trying to reconcile with my “friend” game. She said this game was just amazing and I simply could not go without playing it. She also said that there was multiplayer for this game and that we could help each other get through it and get the platinum trophy for this game. Wanting to reconcile after our very recent blow-ups and periods of not taking to each other, I said OK and picked this game up used. You know the deal though, because if it’s on this list I never finished it, so keep reading to find out why.
In Crysis 2, you get to play as Alcatraz and make your way through a now urban jungle that is New York. This game depends heavily on the fact that you actually played the first game, meaning that throughout the game I was completely lost and had no idea what was going on for the main campaign. I just basically ran around New York shooting stuff and following the mission objectives, but I can honestly tell you I have no idea what this game was even about. As for the multiplayer aspect of this game, it was at that time basically Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is. Meaning that it was fun for about twenty minutes before it got to be the same old thing over and over again.
This whole game was a big lie for me that apparently my “friend” thought was funny. So lie number one was that I didn’t have to play the first game to understand this one when you totally have to play the first one because it’s basically a continuation of the first game. The second lie was that I would have someone to play the multiplayer with but every time I wanted to play the multiplayer she was busy, doing something, I don’t know like washing her hair or something. So, I gritted my teeth, played through the whole campaign basically not caring about the story and played some of the multiplayer before calling it quits because I really didn’t like this game which is why I never finished it. Some games just aren’t for me and this one clearly wasn’t. Did I mention though that I made sure to get more trophies for this game than my “friend” in order to just piss her off? Sometimes you win…sometimes you lose.
For playing only one playthrough and a couple of games of multiplayer I was able to get an ok amount of trophies. 24 out of 51 isn’t really that bad. It puts me at 38% complete, which isn’t great but at least it’s not 0%. To be honest I really didn’t even care about how many trophies I was able to get for this game as long as I got more than my “friend” which I did.
Probability of this game getting played again…1 out of 5.
I really don’t like this game and really can’t see myself playing it again unless I seriously had nothing else to play. I do keep this game though only if to remind me that sometimes people suck and people who you think are your friends really aren’t. It’s one of the lessons learned by being a part of the PS network, and it’s also one of those times when I wished I had just stuck to single player games and never started playing multiplayer games in the first place.
So now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Enjoy playing the multiplayer? Play the first one so that you could understand this game? Or were you completely lost like me because you started off by playing this game? Let me know down in the comments section below and as for next week a game that I wanted to play for me and I was really excited by the premise. I have to say that it was a cool idea and was way before it’s time because while this game wasn’t all that successful, games like Life is Strange was super successful. While it’s not the same story, it has the same features. Want to know why Life is Strange and Remember Me or so similar? Because they’re both made by Dontnod. That’s right, the people that brought you the amazing adventure in Life is Strange also brought you Remember Me. Unlike Life is Strange though, I never finished this game so next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Remember Me.
