Crysis 2‘s lead writer, Richard Morgan, has expressed his feelings regarding current games on several occasions. One of which the sci-fi novelist praises, is Uncharted 2. However, revealed in a recent interview, Crytek’s head honcho doesn’t hold the award winning PS3 exclusive from Naughty Dog in such high esteem.

Speaking to VG247 during a recent interview, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli gives his thoughts on Uncharted 2 and Mass Effect 2, believing that Bioware’s Xbox 360 exclusive, Mass Effect 2 does more of a service to games as a medium than the PS3 exclusive.

I think Mass Effect 2 is doing a better job to the game market, although it’s a completely different style to us, rather than Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare, for that matter. It’s very [makes motion indicating a row of points]: it works, but that’s not our style.Our style is still going to be fast-paced and intense, but our style is going to be about the world, much more like Avatar with Pandora. The story, the line was not interesting and we will have an interesting line, but the world was awesome. That’s what I’m much more interested in: depicting a great world.

Crysis 2 will be released this ‘holiday’ across multiple platforms.
