YouTube user MikeX1978 likes to post videos of video games playing in slow motion. His latest, for example, shows that when you're not running around shooting at things, Crysis 2 can sure get pretty.

It's an interesting choice of music backing it up (LCD Soundsystem's "New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down"). Why? I actually finished playing it yesterday, and thought the New York aspect of the game was actually under-played somewhat. Only occasionally do you ever feel like you're actually on Manhattan, like when you recognise a building you've seen or a street you've walked past. Or when you find the head of the Statue of Liberty sitting in a park.


Other times it's just a city of corridors with obstacles and cover points scattered all over it, indistinguishable from any other destroyed urban centre you've ever fought your way across. Which is a bit of a shame, really!
