If your running windows 8 dont bother buying the maximum pack because crysis 2 is the only one that will run the rest are no good. Apperantly no patches are avaiable as of yet.

Only Crysis 2 is redeemable in Origin client or web. You need to contact EA/Origin for Crysis and Crysis Warhead and they will redeem it for you or provide you a new product key to use in Origin.

Super deal !!

Crysis is fully patched....

For some reason crisis would not
run in Windows 7 64bit without crashing to desktop...

I had to set crisis.exe located in the
C:->Program Files(x86)->Electronic Arts->Crytek->Crysis->Bin32
to run in compatibility
mode either Windows XP(SP 2) or Windows Vista(SP1 or SP2) and set the privilege level to run program as administrator..

After doing this, Crysis ran super smooth with NO Crashes to desktop..

Great games. I can confirm that only Crysis 2 is Origin activable.
After contacting Ea/Origin support I managed to get Crysis 1 and Warhead at my Origin account

Only Crisis 2 Registers with Origin everything else is done after you install the game, Since I am in the process of upgrading my pc to be able to run crisis 2 on max settings with 1920x1080 resolution I cannot write an effective review though I can say so far I am satisfied with what I got I do however recommend if you are a steam user to check there store retail codes list very helpful.

3 out of 4 products in the pack won't activate. This bug been around for at least a year with no attempt to fix it by EA.

PROS:
Great value for this price ($9.99 at time of purchase)
Crysis 1 is seriously addictive!
Easy to activate and link legacy EA games with Origin account.
Legacy games work great on Windows 8 with no tweaks

CONS:
Crysis 1 and Warhead still has SecuRom (see other thoughts why this is bad)
Crysis 1 has poor optimization still (image quality/performance demand ratio is not good)
Doesn't have Crysis 3 (which I already own, but I'm just saying it would complete the trilogy)

Other thoughts:
Codes for Crysis and Crysis Warhead not originally recognized in Origin. Just activate it online at this link:
activate.ea.com/activategame.do
Once complete the game pops up in your Origin library! Easy peasy. Games play fine on Windows 8 no problem, so don't know what some other reviewers are talking about. Crysis is very addictive to play, but I can't believe this game is still stressing my system (GT 750M SLI, i5-4200M, 6GB RAM, Seagate SSD)! I just say this because I've seen games that look way better perform better on same system (Crysis 3 on Low presets and Very High texture quality). The earlier games do come with SecuRom, a notoriously nasty DRM (some claim it steals babies from cribs at nights and eats them whole). On serious note, I have installed games with SecuRom on systems before and had mixed results. I have installed games with SecuRom and played through the game and had no idea until much later the game had the DRM (usually reading about it online). Other times I have had games with the software break my computer and certain hardware or software to the point I had to do a clean install of Windows (Fallout 3 GOTY retail and Dead Space come to mind). So caveat emptor,,, If you're really concerned about it, create a system restore point before install that you can revert to or don't get the game. It's a shame that many miss out on some great games due to not wanting to risk their system to a nasty malware DRM scheme. So far my system has had no issues yet and I do use drive emulation software, as my laptop has no optical drive, but still waiting to be seen if I'm in the clear. Also, the 5 machine limit activation has been raised to 50 installs within Origin so that shouldn't be an issue anymore for most (unless you constantly reinstall Windows or swap hardware a lot).

As far as gameplay goes, Crysis is less linear and you can take more approaches to objectives compared to Crysis 2. Crysis 2 is more a shooter on the rails, but I enjoyed playing it more as it had more variety of enemies and it had a good story. Get tired of killing KPA forces after a while, but I am hoping there will be more variety of baddies as game goes on (I have played all the way through Crysis 2 prior, still playing through Crysis 1). Have yet to play Crysis Warhead, but I have heard good things about it in regards to fixing a lot of the faults to first game and better optimization but still looking good. I personally thought Crysis 2 looked great and didn't really tax systems unnecessarily. I'll edit and update as I play more. Anyways, this review has gone way too long and I want to get back to playing the game. Have fun!

Like so many others, Crysis will not work on a freshly built gaming rig with Windows 7 64-bit. Tried all the tips in the vast forums for this problem with no working solution. This download version is the latest patched version. Crysis 2 works just fine though. Download at your own risk.

first of all dont buy it you will not be able to run crysis 1, crysis wars, crysis warhead on your pc i have an uptodate one 16 gb ram 3gb grapgics card 6 core processor the works... only crysis 2 will work on "ORIGIN" the other one thanks to an amazon customer service will only work on your desktop as in installing and playing of your computer I have installed it and ran it only to have My screen go black or not even load the game at all its not my computer I am able to run crysis 2 on ultra a newer game with better graphics than crysis 1 and others. So do yourself a favor save your money and buy something else that doesn't have issues like this package read the reviews and you will see also amazon will be cheap and not refund you anything for this not even a coupon for your louse on there part.
