While there will be PC gamers who feel that their version of Crysis 2 will have suffered from having to be "ported" to console, I'm taking a different approach.

It may be a "glass half empty" thing, but instead of the hypothetical that the PC version could have looked better if it was PC-only, I'm looking at the definite: that the 360 version looks amazing.

It may not have the resolution or full range of effects the PC version has, but for the "poor man's" version of the game, running on hardware that's over five years old, it's looking great.

As a disclaimer, note that this is footage taken from the demo and not the full game.
