Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo for PC released on 1st March 2011.
It features two maps located in a war-torn Manhattan: â€œSkylineâ€, set on top of the rooftops and interiors of skyscrapers, and â€œPier 17â€, an open environment with limited cover. The demo also features two modes: â€œTeam Instant Actionâ€ pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to win the round and â€œCrash Site,â€ where players will battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.
Installation, gameplay. Good framerate as of my hardware.
What does not
There are some graphical artifacts on "Lowest" settings. Changing them to higher, or restarting computer solves problem - thus possible it is problem with my graphics card. Sometimes freezes when reloading checkpoint after death. Similary sometimes freezes seemingly randomly - I think it is releated to the too much sound samples played at once. Mouse do not works in menu - it essentially stays in the center whole time. Need to navigate using keyboard.
What was not tested
Intel Core2Duo. Nvidia 8600GT. Needed to install and manually copy VC80 runtime.
