Crysis 2 was a freebie on PS Plus a little while ago, so here it is as this week's Pick 'n' Mix game.

Come and join us from 8.30pm!

Bah, I traded this in a while ago because no-one was playing it.

As per my comment, I've recently deleted this from my HDD.
Picked it up for free from PS+ but didn't play more than 5 minutes & needed the space for other freebies!

Running a little late, likely to be on nearer to 9pm.

There seem to be problems with PSN. If it's not working in the next half hour the session may be off. :(

Not a bad night, this game is very CoD-esc but in a good way, I think lots of practice is needed if we decide to make it a regular game. Late on in the night we tried a different game mode after playing team instant action and it seems that being a higher level makes all the difference, it was us below rank 10 against rank 30+, maybe if it is a regular thing we can see how it is once we rank up a little.

Crysis 2 was rather enjoyable. :)

Apart from the last couple of objective-based game modes which were imbalanced (we had all low-rankers on our team and all high-rankers on the other) it was a fun evening. As JK says, it's plays in a similar way to Col but with a few extra tweaks, like a stealth cloak and shield for all characters. These, along with running, use energy and when your energy meter is empty you have to let it charge for a few seconds before using again, so no-one can permanently use these abilities.

Definitely a game we should play again and I'll also be having a go at single player.

I loved crisis 2. I sold it ages ago as no one else had it. My saved files have also been deleted. Does anyone know if my online rank would have been preserved as I might re buy it if I still had my old rank and weapons.

I think it's an EA game so should be saved server side, if you registered on the my Crysis web page you should be able to see your rank.

Never bought any DLC (I dont think) was there DLC made and if so was it included in the free PS+ game?

DLC is never included in free PS Plus games, presumably because they hope you buy it.
