Crysis 2 and 3 for Nintendo Switch

Do you like first person shooters? If so, then you’ll be glad to know that a trilogy of new games in the genre are on Nintendo Switch now! Crysis 1, 2, and 3 are now available on the Switch. We took a look at the second and third game in the trilogy! Are they any good? Here are our review of Crysis 2 and 3 for Nintendo Switch!


Crysis 2 and 3 are first person shooters were you play as an enhanced solider who is out to take down the bad guys. There is, of course, a little more to it than that but its very complex and spoilery. Both stories are just okay, but chances are that you are not playing Crysis 2 and 3 for its story.

The first person gameplay in Crysis 2 and 3 is the main reason to play these games. If you’re a first person shooter fan, then you’ll feel right at home with both games. They have the same type of gameplay with only minor differences. Crysis 3 lets you play some of the abilities, like modifying weapons, a little sooner than the second game.

Both games are some of the best shooters I’ve ever played on the Switch. The action is fast paced, with the controls letting you switch between weapons and abilities on the fly. There is gyro controls if you want to look around but they can be turned off.


We played Crysis 2 and 3 solely in portable mode on a Switch Lite and the game ran great! There was no noticeable lag time and the graphics looked very good. There is a bit of load time when the games first start but after that, getting around the levels and getting back after you’re killed off is pretty fast.

The best past about both games though? Crysis 2 and 3 has destructible environments. Crysis 2 shows this off really well right away with the city environment. Its so impressive. Destroying stuff in these games is really fun. There’s also a power kick that’ll let you kick a car around!

If you are a first person shooter fan, then you need to check out Crysis 2 and 3 on the Nintendo Switch. In fact, the whole trilogy is available on the system! Shooter fans are going to have a blast with these games.

Crysis 2 and 3 get an 8.5 out of 10.
