Product Description

CrysisTM is a next-generation PC first-person shooter from Crytek, the award-winning developers of Far Cry. A stunning technical achievement, Crysis combines incredible visuals, cunning gameplay and an epic story that challenges gamers to adapt to survive. Global tensions have reached boiling point as the U.S. and North Korea square off in the South China Sea. At stake: a mysterious artifact uncovered by a team of U.S. archeologists. The North Korean government quickly seizes the area, prompting the U.S. to dispatch an elite team of Delta Force operatives on a rescue mission. During the siege the true nature of the artifact quickly emerges, pointing to the existence of an alien presence on Earth, and ultimately the trigger for a massive-scale alien invasion. The battle to save Earth begins as the aliens' flash freeze the tropics into a ghostly-white frozen landscape. As gamers take up arms against the aliens, they will be outfitted with customisable weapons and a high tech nano-suit, allowing them to adapt their tactics and abilities to a hostile, ever-changing environment and a mysterious enemy. Powered by CryENGINE 2TM, Crysis delivers the ultimate DX10 gaming experience for the PC, including unparalleled graphics, special effects and artificial intelligence. The game is also scaleable to deliver a breath-taking FPS experience for older DX9 PCs. © 2007 Crytek. All Rights Reserved. Crysis and CryENGINE are trademarks of Crytek.

Finally I bought my new desktop PC and was ready to give a go on this already 4 years old game.
I haven't had so much fun playing an FPS game (actually 2 games - Crysis & Crysis Warhead) since the Half-life 2 days. In addition I must mention I don't care about multiplayer so all my scoring goes for the single-player version of the game.

Pros:
- graphics are stunning
- sound and music (especially in Warhead) are breath taking
- gameplay is awesome. Huge maps allowing you to do a mission in infinite amount of different ways. You get all possible environments - frozen mountains to sunny beaches, big outdoor areas to corridors. There are vehicles that can be driven behind each corner. I found though piloting the helicopter a bit annoying. Weapons and enemies vary in good amount.
- nanosuit - eeeh the nanosuit... so much fun to cloak, sneak, grab, hit, set to armor, shoot, cloak again, grab next one, hit, shoot while using enemy as cover, run fast, set armor and so on.
- suspense is everywhere. Lots of short cutscenes are addding great part to the overall experience
- price - 2 games (actually 3) for ~10eu, no one can beat that
- replay value is high
- story is not great but OK

Cons:
- The only thing I can think of is that playing this game until late night has the effect of me having problems waking up in the mourning to go to work.

Well to start off this is the maximum addition of crysis , which contains crysis, crysis warhead and crysis wars, all i have to say is it is absolutely astounding. Everything about the game is brilliant, the story in my opinion is excellent,in crysis you play the role of Nomad and follow his story through the jungle and spaceship, then in warhead you follow psycho and follow the same story but it breaks off in a tangent and runs alongside the story of crysis , the gameplay is great allowing you to switch between four suit types, the two games have very similar gameplay without any real variation. The best factor of it is the graphics , they are head and shoulders above anything else out at the moment, although you need a real monster of a pc/laptop torun it at any kind of high level. I have a 1gb HD4870 and it can just run it at very high at a playable 25fps but can be prone to freezing although that could be the operating system (vista ultimate 64). Its capable of running warhead at about 35fps due to the fact that the engine has been refined to be less demanding.
But if you own a pc that in your opinion is good you owe it too yourself to invest in this game as i think it would be very hard to be disapointed by it.

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.

Crysis looks amazing, the beautiful textures and stunning water create a very interesting world to explore, its pretty sand boxed level design too. Its fun to play, you can mess around for hours shooting stuff and wandering around and the story is good enough too although maybe they could have tried less Predator references... In fact in would be one of my top games...
However its just so broken I wonder how long EA had its testers on it.
First bug, completely terminal. couldn't find Dll refused to load game... Uninstalled everything, reinstalled everything... Lost all saves.
Second bug, A tank flew up in the air spun around like a top however it still had targeting on me and given its glorious vantage point shot the hell out of me.
Third bug, Blew up a tank, tank flew up in the air and hung there spinning... Mission indicator and map show tank was still alive..
Fourth bug, blew up BOTH tanks... neither shows up as dead on mission indicators, game is stuck.
Fifth bug, blew up BOTH tanks... neither shows up as dead on mission indicators, game is stuck.
Sixth bug, blew up BOTH tanks... neither shows up as dead on mission indicators, game is stuck.
Yeah... Still in the village having killed the tanks again... Apparently I have to follow a river to get the game to work again...
Type in tank bug on Google you will see it there first result. I mean this game was released in 2007, this edition is 2009 re-released with known bugs STILL in it. How about when you re-release a game you throw in a little effort fixing known massive problems?
