Amazon.co.uk Review

From the makers of Far Cry comes the most technologically advanced video game ever made, with graphics to make you gasp and enemy artificial intelligence so clever it could give SkyNET a run for its money. With Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 now well established, Crysis has become the new milestone for PC graphics and first person shoot ‘em-ups. The premise of the game involves an alien landing on an island off North Korea, with you as the only person that can stop it. The incredibly realistic looking environments are the game’s initial draw, with some particularly stunning looking jungle locales. All the levels include dynamic effects to make them even more realistic (and dangerous) including earthquakes, breaking ice, landslides and tornadoes. Since the alien decides to flash freeze the entire island half way through the game, and the final sections end up in a zero gravity spaceship, it’s unlikely you’re going to get tired of the same old environments.

As in Far Cry, there’s no strict level structure and you’re able to explore the island however you want; choosing to go in all guns blazing or taking a more stealthy approach. You can also customise your weapons to suit your preferred style of play with silencers, telescopic sights, laser sightings and more. Your special armour can also be modified as you go, so that you make less noise as you move, run faster, jump higher, recover energy or just take damage better and make use of heavier weapons. Naturally the game also includes an extensive multiplayer mode, but it is the stunning, near photorealistic, graphics and game world which is most certain to claim the game’s name in PC gaming history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the Game of the Year 13 Nov 2007
By Stephen Stein VINE VOICE
Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Crysis has been one of the most watched and most talked about games for the last few years. It promised to be the best looking game ever made, and it promised to deliver a deeper, richer and more engrossing first person shooter experience than its pseudo-predecessor FarCry. And it managed both.

It's probably impossible to review Crysis without spending great lengths talking about how good the game looks. So I'm going to get it out of the way first. Crysis looks amazing. If you have something like an 8800gts and a couple gigs of ram and a dual core CPU, you can probably play it with everything on high at a good resolution. And in this state, it looks utterly beautiful. The sunsets are breathtaking, the island foliage is gorgeous, the character models are astounding and you will feel like you're experiencing something very special when you play this game.

Right, that's the visuals done and out of the way. So what about the story? You play as a USA supersoldier type (with a fancy high tech suit called a nanosuit), you're part of a team sent to explore why an American team of archaeologists was taking captive by North Koreans just as they were making an important discovery. Things just get better and better from there. Need an example? GIANT ROBOT ALIENS! It's no more of an interesting story than you'll find in your typical FPS game, but it's a pretty solid plot by FPS standards. The game also looks utterly gorgeous, by the way.

The game presents many playstyles through the customisation available. Your weapons can be customised - you can attach and detach silencers and torches, you can switch between different types of scope and you can even use tranquilisers for non-lethal takedowns. Your usual assortment of weapons is in here. And then there's your nanosuit.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a game of two halves... 3 Feb 2008
Edition:Normal
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
...and overall it's pretty good.

As you should know by now - graphically it's gorgeous - and sometimes you just have to stop and enjoy the views. Do 'google' the minor bit of editing needed to enable the 'Vista-only' top-quality graphics settings for running Crysis on XP - and it seems sad and odd to me that we users have to hack this - but it's v easy to do.

'Which FPS is best'? Easy - it's the one you enjoy the most. If you enjoy having the option to really think your way through a level, and choose your own angle/plan of attack, then (large chunks of) Far Cry still takes a lot of beating - and so does most of the first half of Crysis. (...and it seems that Far Cry 2 will 'major' on this... yipee...)

Where Crysis left me a bit underwhelmed was that some of the other/latter sections really aren't that good - inside the alien mothership is kinda okay for a while, but drags on, and the airbourne section is utterly unenjoyable - it's like trying to control a hippo on ice, using string! Oh, and the thankfully short tank section is... err... thankfully short.

And overall the game isn't that long, so you're very quickly back at the opening sections vs the Koreans... which may be no bad thing... One side issue of it being short is that you very quickly get to use all the fire-arms the game has - there's no gradual climbing up a 'tech tree' to anticipate/enjoy as per Far Cry. Which is a bit of a shame.

Much more of a shame - for those of us wanting an 'islands' map, well, you'll be sadly disappointed as there isn't one (...the one from Far Cry I've replayed countless times....). I know critics would have moaned 'lazy', but we players would have LOVED it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crysis - anything but 9 Sep 2010
Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In short...
Positives:

Game length - the storyline took me well over 12 hours of solid game-play to complete. More experienced gamers would probably do it in less, but either way it has the greatest number of levels in any First-person-shooter I've played.

Graphics (if you have a powerful enough computer) - immense graphics and sound quality; particularly explosions - watching an RPG hit a helicopter looks like something out of a Bruce Willis movie.

Natural non-linear levels (i.e. every level has tonnes of possible successful routes - you aren't just guided through, and with this you can approach each level in your own style - gung-ho power and strength, slow and stealthy, or anywhere in between).

Tonnes of action - there are calmer levels, and ones which require more stealth - although this is mostly up to your preferred method of gameplay, but in every level there are tense moments, and the fighting scenes are just epic. The part of the game where you are in an alien, zero-g environment is not only disorienting, its scary. I wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible - that's how awesome this game is. It encapsulates you.

Negatives:

The amount of power your computer needs to run it. My laptop packs a 2-core 2.46GHz processor, 4GB RAM, and a 1GB ATI RADEON 5470 video card - well over recommended spec, and it can still only really cope with medium graphics quality in action sequences (although the graphics are still awesome on this relatively low setting). Of course, being a laptop, it's performance is always a little reduced compared to the equivalent desktop.
