“The fact EA chose to unveil the world premiere of Crysis 2 to a throng of journalists at a swanky shindig at the Tribeca Grand in the heart of New York City is no coincidence. Taking place several years after the original game, Crysis 2 brings the conflict against the alien invaders from the dense tropical jungles of the Philippines to the decimated urban jungle of the Big Apple. It’s a move that’s designed to change the pace and give players a stronger emotional connection to the catastrophic events that unfold in the game.”
Check out my full impressions and a rundown from the Crysis 2 first look world premiere event here at Ars Technica.
“As in the movie, the vicious murder of a Japanese housewife unleashes a horrific curse that inevitably spreads death and dismemberment to anyone who comes in contact with it. This spells bad news for Erika Yamada and her entire family, who find themselves in an unfortunate “tag: you’re it” situation. Billed as the Wii’s first “haunted house simulator,” The Grudge unravels the gruesome tale with a first-person account of each family member’s attempt to claw their way through creepy locations and stave off being eviscerated by evil for as long as possible.”
