The ESRB has released a summary for Crysis 2 alongside giving the shooter the expected M rating.

The US board said battles in the game are highlighted by “realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large explosions”.

Also, in one of the sequences, the player character encounters “cages filled with human corpses (some with exposed buttocks).”

You can also break enemies’ necks or slice their throats using stealth attacks. Fun.

You can read the full summary below:

“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier who must help defend humanity against an alien invasion. Players use handguns, machine guns, sniper rifles, and rocket launchers to kill aliens and other human soldiers in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large explosions. During the course of the game, players are able to use stealth attacks to break enemies’ necks or slice their throats. Injured characters generally emit large splashes of blood from their chests and necks, and some levels depict large bloodstains on the floor or walls. In one sequence, players’ character encounters cages filled with human corpses (some with exposed buttocks). The words ‘f**k’ and ‘sh*t’ can be heard in the dialogue.”

Crysis 2 releases on March 22 in UK and March 24 in the US for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
