ICON Loading...

The year is 2020, and a resurgent North Korea has become an economic and military powerhouse, but a greater menace – one that threatens all of humanity - now lies on an island just off its coast. You are 1st Lieutenant Jake Dunn, callsign "Nomad." You are part of Raptor Team, a five-man US Army Delta Force squad equipped with advanced Nano Muscle Suits which can provide healing and stealth as well as increased speed and strength.

Your mission is to rescue a team of archeologists who were taken captive by elements of the North Korean People's Army. As your unit engages the North Koreans, a hostile alien force enters the fray resulting in a vicious three-way struggle for control of the island – and the rest of the earth.

Crysis has been called one of the most visually stunning games on the market with richly detailed environments, superb animation and character models along with an incredible AI scheme that has enemies behaving differently depending on their level of alert. Fight your way through jungles, caverns, the zero-gravity of the alien mothership or the flash-frozen island with a variety of customizable weapons. Weapons can be modified on the fly using found components and the Muscle Suit's mode can be shifted on the fly for tactical advantage. Take command of land and sea vehicles - including tanks and hovercraft – to bring heavier weapons to bear upon your enemies. Join over 30 other players online in Instant Action deathmatch action or in team-based Power Struggle. In Crysis, your human enemies are as dangerous as your alien foes.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat graphics, but does not make up for gameplay

Pros: The game, as you could guess, is fantastic looking. The graphics with all the shading effects, enthusiast settings and motion blur is pretty amazing looking. The game play has some interesting ideas, such as the ability to use your only energy in whatever way you need at the moment. The campaign is pretty good too.

Cons: That is sort of where the game ends. Yes it is the benchmark game for all those PC peeps out there, but does that make it good? Not really :\

First off, the difficulties are absolutely terrible. Everything below delta is very easy. I played through the game on hard first time around and it was just the easiest thing I may have ever played. When I tried the game on Delta difficulty, it was completely ridiculous. The AI suddenly seems to break the stupid computer barrier and finally start getting wise to your tricks.

I hated the fact that the AI always knows where you are as long as your not cloaked. So even if you were in thick bushes or behind a huge tree in a forest, they pretty much know your there instantly.

Would be cool if they made strength mode make your health regen faster so you can actually use melee when you run out of bullets. At least this would make the idea of meleeing anything feasable...

Other Thoughts: I am sort of disappointed that they made the graphics so inefficient. Some modern games like Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Mirror's Edge manage to be fantastic looking and not obscenely difficult to run. I think they should have spent more money making the game have efficient visuals so you don't need a tri-SLI and OC your whatever to run the game at its full settings.

However... I must admit the most fun thing I had done in the game had to be going through the game on easy mode using only melee (unless I had to use guns to do something). I had hours of fun doing that, haha!

5 out of 5 eggsCrysis

Pros: Game kicks total a##!but you need the system to handle it.You need way over the system requirements to fully enjoy the game.I have never played a game so detailed and action packed.If you have a top of the line High performance gaming pc with really good cooling you will have a lot of fun with it.This game is well over worth your money.Is now my favorite game.This game really shows it pays off not cheaping out on your rig.

Cons: The recommended requirements on the game are way too low compared to what you really need.Not a crummy little 9800 gt or gts.you need the big gun graphics cards for it.And don't listen to "Oh it looks just as good on low" please.This game will lock up your whole system if your graphics cards are not cooled properly while playing it.If you can't afford liquid cooling stick a case fan next to the graphics card or cards in the case with double sided-tape.or open your case up and face a huge fan towards it.I have a lot of buddies that bought this game and couldn't play it.If you are not even close to over the recommended requirements don't buy it because you will waste your money.MAKE SURE YOU ARE WAY OVER THE RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS!!!

Other Thoughts: I recommend you play this on Dx9.the game is a lot smoother on Dx9 than DX10.DX10 has more eye appealing textures but it's not worth it.it is a hell of a lot slower.And set the QUICK SUIT OPTIONS on in the game that also speeds up the game.Also make sure you go online and find out what resolution settings and game settings are best for your rig.This will make the game the way it was meant to be played. @Q9550 Core 2 Quad processor.8 gigs of SLi 4-4-4-12 patriot viper Ram.XFX Nvidia 780i three way SLi mother board.SLi Galaxy Hybrid 9800 GTX+ x2. 900w ABS high performance SLi compatible. 1000 gigs of seagate barricuda hard drive space.8x Blue ray drive with lightscribe,cd rewritable,DVD multi recorder.

5 out of 5 eggsPure Adrenaline

Pros: Graphics, you've heard enough about that

After beating this game, I realized that it does two things better than any other shooter: presentation and immersion. The storyline was, honestly, cliched and boring. However, because of the way the game was presented, coupled with the graphics, you somehow get sucked into it. I was completely there fighting off *spoiler* aliens *spoiler* with the rest of my soldier buddies, getting a downed pilot out of a helicopter. I haven't felt that way about a game in years. The graphics probably have a lot to do with this immersion.
The game is also playable at much lower framerates. This has to do with the way the action is blurred instead of getting choppy when the framerate dips. I'm sure my fps dipped into the teens but I didn't notice at all.

two words: dumpster assasin

throwing heavy things at people with the strength power on kills people, hilarity ensues.

Cons: I was a little dissapointed with the suit;s abilities. Gamespot claimed "this game makes you feel like a super hero", a classic pretend fantasy. However, the suit really just give you a little bit of an edge over the koreans to survive. Too much of a gap between powers. If you want to uncloak and then clock somebody in the face with your gun it sometimes doesn't work because of the delay between powers.

Other Thoughts: I was luckily able to run every thing on very high (you can do this in xp, requires some .cfg tweaks) with 33 fps avg in the benchmark demo. Some of the people here claiming to be able to run 35 fps constant on the rigs they have are more than likely mistaken. 3 years after this game came out, I bought myself a core i7 rig and still couldn't handle the most intense parts above 20 fps. As mentioned above, it doesn't feel that way because of the way the motion blur works in the game.

my rig:
core i7 920
3 gb ram (can't remember speed)
gtx 260

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome graphics

Pros: Amazing graphics better than any other game currently available. on my computer with a nvidia 9800gt graphics card and intel core 2 duo processor i get 60fps with some settings on high and some on low with no antialiasing. I have played it on a computer with a gtx260 and it could run maxed out settings with 4x antialising at perfect 60fps.
to complete objectives you need to use the nanosuits various powers and understand the weapons different functions. You must be very strategic and sneak around especially on delta difficulty which i enjoy a lot.

Cons: the gameplay is a little repetitive.

Other Thoughts: If you decide to get this game (you should) play on hard or delta because it is a lot more realistic and fun. In my opinion there are better games out there like the half-life series but this game is still a must have for all avid gamers like me :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat game

Pros: Great FPS

Cons: buggy in Vista due to DX10 must run in DX9 mode especially the last level

Other Thoughts: Install patches and run in DX9 mode when using Vista. Open Games and right click on Crysis then click DX9 it will save you a lot of grief. last level was giving me fits with crashes no matter what settings I chose. Researched and game across the DX9 mode fix and it played perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsBest game so far.

Pros: Best graphics around. Great game play. FUN!!!! I seriously recommend the game

Cons: People complain about the system specs, but not everyone needs to play it on high settings.

Other Thoughts: People talk about it being to easy, yea any game is easy on medium to easy difficulty just kick it up a notch and it makes it all that much better.
