I’ve played all of the Crysis games, and loved them,and recently decided to return to the first one.
The graphics are surprisingly good, given that the game was released 8 years ago (2007). Of course, “very high” graphics probably only compares to “medium” by modern gaming standards, but the graphics certainly don’t diminish the games enjoyability, and the scale of the island is certainly decent.
So this all came about when I decided to go through the Crysis series again. Having only played Crysis 1 once, and recalling it as an “OK” game before going into the fun of Crysis 2, which featured a nano suit with built in extra speed and strength capabilities, I wasn’t expecting much. So I was surprised to find myself loving every moment of the game. Am really enjoying the storyline, and the different approaches to each situation, including stealth, brute force, and more often than not, a mixture of the 2. I’ve also found myself enjoying the sniping from a distance tactic, which I rarely find myself doing these days.
If you’re looking for a nice campaign, I’d definitely recommend this game - and at 12 dollars for the Crysis 1 “maximum edition”, you can’t go far wrong!
Edit : Or you can get all 3 off of origin for £14.99
Am looking forward to playing through the whole series, and although all 3 are great fun, I think Crysis 1 is set to be my favourite out of the 3!
Any other Crysis fans? Which one was your favourite, and why. Don’t forget to hide the spoilers, if they are story related!
