To conclude our in-depth coverage of the recent Crysis 2 New York first look event, we bring you our lengthy interview with Crytek's Senior Art Director, Frank Kitson.

In 9 minutes of pure Crysis 2 delight, we find out how the CryEngine 3 is possible on consoles and what sort of limitations that brings, how they plan to create a sandbox environment in New York city, what changes have been done to the new and improved Nanosuit 2 and how they've corrected the rather shallow gameplay of the original.

Been living under a rock the past few days? Missed our Crysis 2 New York first look coverage? There's still chance to check out our first impressions, the new trailer and all the news so far for the upcoming console and PC sequel that's due this holiday.

Crysis was the reason I stopped PC gaming and bought a xbox360(my comp couldn't handle it's awesome-ness and upgrading a PC is just too damn expensive). Really happy to see they are bringing to second one to the xbox!

I hope the story of the first game is explained in the intro to the second or something. Most of the people that will buy this on 360 haven't played the first.

@6 they will probably explain the whole suit thing and alien thing without having to go back to #1, but if u really want to know what happened in the first im sure u could find videos on youtube

Kind of want it to be a PC only. Makes it have a bit of an exclusiveness feel and you don't get those people who say "If this was the 360 I'd kick your ass".

Sweet, I didn't even know this was coming out for 360. Was the first actually that good or just crazy graphics?
