The First Person Shooters Have Finally Evolved

Moving from PC to consoles for a sequel is always a risky proposition, especially when the original was a showcase title for gamers with graphics card installations that cost more than the average personal computer.
There’s always the sense that developers must be ‘dumbing down’ the game somewhat and pandering to a broader audience.
Far Cry 2 wasn’t a resounding success on consoles, but it proved to be an ambitious open world adventure far deeper than any regular FPS already released on the 360 or PS3. Crysis 2 has arrived with some lofty expectations and what it does different is clearly what will set it apart from the horde of franchise shooters.
