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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a game of two halves... 3 Feb. 2008
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 I can't put it any other way - Superb! 10 Dec. 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Now if your thinking of buying this game and you're currently looking through reviews the one question you have to ask yourself is will your computer cope. I know originally I tried playing the demo on an old rig of mine and I had an interesting experience where all I could see was character eyeballs. Now after that I didn't take my time to write a review on how I can't believe the top visually stunning FPS to date wouldn't work on my mediocre PC. I simply accepted the fact and a few months down the line (ignoring the large hole in my pocket) I bought the game having completely renovated my PC. I'm using an 8800 and I can say with distinction the game runs like a dream.
So let's be fair, make sure you can run it before you buy. I suggest you get on the website and download the demo (it's easy to find).

That all being said and you having played through the demo without flaw - Why are you still here? Buy the game already and stop wasting your time when clearly one of the best FPS around is collecting dust in a warehouse when it should be gracing your monitor with its stunning visuals.

That being said I will choose to lay down some, what I would consider relatively worthwhile points that perhaps have not been repeated enough times already.
I will not in any detail comment on the aspects of the campaign because I think that's just about all covered in other reviews. I will say however I am now on my fourth run through of the campaign. So yes it's that good.
It is in no way a short single player; it spectacularly manages to continue on at points when you were sure it had finished and perhaps where other games plots would have lost the courage. Anyone who claims its short has simply lost all sense of time probably because they enjoyed it too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to understand the negative reviews 17 Jun. 2008
By ry19
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to agree with the reviewers who have expressed puzzlement at all the negative reviews flying around about Crysis. It's a seriously good game. Here's a summary of my experience.

Firstly, I'm playing on Windows XP on an Intel Core2Duo 6600 with an 8800GT graphics card and 2GB RAM. A PC bought for about £600 almost two years ago, but with an upgraded graphics card that cost me £130 in March. I'm also using the tweak that can readily be found on the internet to unlock the "very high" graphics settings that are supposedly Windows Vista only. Everything runs perfectly, with zero lag, and the graphics surpass anything I've seen before in a game. Even my Dad, who has zero interest in computers and thinks games are a waste of time (he's probably right, sigh) found himself getting into my run through the Relic level - he admitted it really did feel like he was watching a film. His advice on how to tackle the hilltop fort wasn't up to much, though....

I've no doubt it won't be half as impressive on older machines (or on Vista with my specs, it would seem) BUT don't forget that as technology moves on, Crysis will become more and more playable for lower cost. The sweet spot when average PCs can run it on high settings and it still looks top notch in comparison to other games will likely not come along for a few months. Right now it's probably only fully appreciated by very keen gamers who are willing to drop three-figure sums on upgrading their computers (sad types like me, then). If you are one of these people, though, you'll surely agree that Crysis is the pinnacle of what any format can currently boast in terms of visuals.

In terms of game mechanics, I've also found none of the problems that many people have grumbled about.
