Crysis was first released in 2007. That's 5 years ago, and yet the graphics are still the benchmark for what PC gaming is capable of. This boxset includes not only Crysis, but its interquel, Crysis Warhead (2008) as well as online component Crysis Wars. As such it's a complete bargain for essentially 3 very high quality games and well worth getting.
Let's start with Crysis. I must admit, I am a latecomer to the Crysis party. I first got interested after setting up a new PC rig, to which my friends responded - 'Yeah, but can it run Crysis?'. I started out with the demo - which features portions of the first level only - and fell in love with it immediately.
Crysis' strong point is the immersive environment it provides you with - flawless graphics even on low settings, surround sound that really places you in the game and an open-ended approach to completing missions. The Nanosuit is also a great plus - giving you the ability to boost your Stealth, Speed, Strength or Armour when battles get really tough.
On to Crysis Warhead - which, rather than being more of the same, offers you a better protagonist, gameplay, pacing, and vehicle and weapons handling, in exchange for a slightly more linear mission experience. Don't let that reduced flexibility put you off though, it's still amazing - and perhaps even better than Crysis (although sadly much shorter). Plus you get to hang on to the Nanosuit - hooray!
Sure these games have their flaws, for example, occasionally the difficulty ramps up dramatically at points of the game - going from Sunday Morning Stroll to World War III in seconds, and the storyline is shabby in places, but overall these games represent some of the finest experiences the PC gaming world has created - and for that reason alone you should consider these titles.
