This mod has potential , but due to the complete in-balance between Vietnam and America it makes it unplayable. Vietnam can gain more money and can pump out more men then America can, and can control more of the map and hold it. Not being able to expand and the slow rate of accumulating money makes this mod a frustrating experience. 1/10
This is easily the best single player shooter ever made. Excellent dialogues enhance this well-crafted story, the soundtrack is perfect, and the survival gameplay mechanics are top-notch. This is one of the most riveting adventure games I've ever played. Sadly there's no real way to mod the game.
A necessary expansion with various engine improvements and a ton of mods available. Surprisingly, this game has better graphics than lots of mainstream crap today, at least on NVIDIA cards with SSAO and supersampling enabled. This is why HL2 E2 has so many modifications.
Due to the booming sales of mindless, skilless shooters, as well as the influence of EA, Crytek stooped down to Call of Duty levels and released a Halo-Call of Duty mashup called Crysis 2. This game was targeted toward consoles and it couldn't be more clear: Skimmed down campaign, multiplayer is just like Call of Duty in many aspects, removal of usable vehicles and sandbox gameplay, removal of their highly strategic Power Struggle game mode, etc. It even took them months to add good graphics to the game.
It's not even worthwhile to get this game for the editor, since the CE3 editor is available as a free download on their website. Hopefully most skilled modders realize that it is worthless to create mods for this game.
When people think of Crysis, all they think of are pretty graphics since this is why it was the most revolutionary game in recent years. Still, noticeable effort has gone into the single player and multiplayer of Crysis, making it one of the best shooters of all time. Innovative gameplay changes up the feel of Crysis, and they perfected the mechanics so it's not clunky at all.
The campaign is lengthy and sandbox style, while multiplayer has larger maps than Battlefield 3 as well as more compact maps so everyone is happy. Deathmatch and "Power Struggle" are the only multiplayer game modes, the latter is very strategic and the best PvP game mode ever created. Crysis multiplayer is one of the most fun games ever made, right next to its sequel, Crysis Wars.
When it comes down to modding, there isn't a game better than the Crysis series. Not only do they include a bunch of xml and lua files for easy, quick changes, all of these files are compressed in simple .pak files so you can use WinRAR to access them. The CryEngine 2 SDK was as revolutionary as the engine, making it much easier for people to create mind-blowing levels and much more.
Crysis is without a doubt the best all-around shooter: very good single player campaign, excellent and highly innovative multiplayer with a learning curve, and unrivaled mod support.
Although Clear Sky retains the excellent modding capabilities, the story is weak and the eating function has been removed. You'll find much more interesting mods for Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat, as they're the better games.
