Crysis 2 multiplayer footage shows off New York's concrete jungle

Crytek has just released a new video showing footage from Crysis 2’s multiplayer and it looks great. The video shows a round of team death match on the rooftops of New York. You’ll get to see a variety of Nanosuit abilities, like cloaking, but what we really love are all the little details that Crytek has worked into the game.

We love the animation of your fist pounding into the ground when the player leaps from rooftop to rooftop at the beginning. The water spilling out of the pipe about a minute in also looks great – and when you see a teammate pass you by, you’ll see a great sliding animation as he jumps down to the lower level. It also looks like maneuvering through Crysis 2’s levels will be more fun this time around. Notice how the player jumps about 20 feet into the air to glide through a window about two minutes in. That being said, it does look like everyone on the opposing team has their kiddie gloves on. No one seems to take a shot at the player we're watching until the very end, which makes everything seem a bit staged. But enough commentary for a video you’re probably already watching right now. You can check it out below for yourself.

    I had a total nerdgasm over this game. This game loooks SOOOO COOL!! Despite it being staged. I couldn't tell you what even struck me with this game, but when I saw it I was like.... Know what? I can hardly even describe it.. haha. But I'm just crazy excited!

    Two things. First, that's terrible staging, and the game probably won't play anything like that if the weapons are as powerful as they looked in that. Second, I may be nitpicking here, but when you break a guy's neck, show the points for getting the kill exactly at the point of the victim's death, like exactly when his neck snaps. (wow, I sound creepy there) Having it show up after the whole animation played out broke the immersion a little bit.

    Looks pretty good, IDK, don't really give a toss about multiplayer, the bits where the player cold pull himself up onto ledges etc... looks pretty cool, graphics are nice for console and that better have been console footage because I watched it in HD on youtube and if it's pc then we have a problem.

    This seems ridiculously staged. But there are a lot of little things that interest me to buy it. Like the Stealth mode, Super Human ability. It kind of seems like a Crackdown FPS. But WAY more polished and better looking.

    The audio is a bit funny, kinda fuzzy and muted, but I guess thats because of the staging?

    Those bots suck.

    2nd! Also, It may not be MW2, but that looks REDICULOUSLY polished and impressive.

    Man thats really staged although I was impressed with the movement, like what Brunk is going for aswell. And the shiny, colourfull graphics are a nice change from brown brown brown.
