Crysis was good because I enjoyed being immersed in the world and discovering for myself the best tactical solution to the scenario. Crysis 2 had to paint the limited options over the screen in neon for you in every new shoe-box you encountered.
Actually - the biggest thing missing from Crysis 2 which makes a very welcome return in 3, I can take my time! 2 was all 'GO GO NOW NOW!' and there are elements of that in 3, but I've been able to ponder and procrastinate over levels far more than Crysis 2 ever had the patience for.
So, you may well prefer Crysis 2, but that probably means you don't like the essence that made the franchise great.
