To the surprise of all was the second version of Crysis for the PS3 and Xbox 360 that were used to make the gameplay presented by site gamertrailers and Crytek talking about it said we can expect a better version for the PC. The bundle includes Crysis, Crysis Warhead, and Crysis Wars included in one box.
When it was first formed, Crytek was a little known European developer with big dreams and aspirations. But unlike other upstart companies, they had an ace in the hole: a powerful and impressive graphics engine that they dubbed the CryEngine. The company then went on to prove that they weren't just a bunch of brainiacs with tech skills: they could craft a great gaming experience as well.
Crysis At A GlancePROS:
- Incredible graphics and cutting-edge technology represent the next level of PC gaming.
- The Nanosuit abilities enhance the game's open-ended gameplay,
- The game features some of the best enemy A.I. that we have ever seen.
- If you don't own a high-end gaming rig, you won't get the full experience.
- In fact, you'll have to spend a lot of time making tweaks to the settings to get it running right.
- DX10 performance is lackluster: you get great results visually but your system's performance will take a big hit.
With its dense tropical setting, lush level design and advanced enemy A.I., the company's first effort, Far Cry, earned it a heaping dose of well-deserved praise from game critics and gamers alike. Thanks to its early success, the expectations for the company's second game rose to atmospheric heights. The question became clear: could Crytek top Far Cry's visuals, which were widely considered to be some of the best ever seen, and expansive scope?
Well, the answer to that question is here and if you had any doubt about Crytek's abilities, it's time to abandon them--Crysis is superior to Far Cry in every way that matters: technically, visually and conceptually. Powered by the high-powered CryEngine2, Crysis isn't a game as much as it is a force of (technological) nature.
But outstanding visuals aren't the only thing lurking under the hood: Crysis also features amazingly realistic A.I., an expansive and open-ended world, and intense action that's anchored by the awesome Nanosuit.
