From the Manufacturer

From the makers of Far Cry, Crysis offers FPS fans the best-looking, most highly-evolving gameplay, requiring the player to use adaptive tactics and total customization of weapons and armor to survive in dynamic, hostile environments including Zero-G.

Earth, 2019. A team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea. All contact with the team is lost when the North Korean Government quickly seals off the area. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation. As tension rises between the two nations, a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island. The ship generates an immense force sphere that freezes a vast portion of the island and drastically alters the global weather system. Now the US and North Korea must join forces to battle the alien menace. With hope rapidly fading, you must fight epic battles through tropical jungle, frozen landscapes, and finally into the heart of the alien ship itself for the ultimate Zero G showdown.


  • A unique three-act structure forces the player to use real-time armor and weapons customization to adapt constantly to an ever-changing world.
  • Encounter a frightening and totally original alien species—they use their senses intelligently and work together to present the most challenging enemy yet in an FPS.
  • Control of a variety of land, sea, and air vehicles including trucks, tanks, boats, and helicopters.
  • Explore a living, dynamic world where earthquakes, breaking ice, landslides, and tornados pose an ever-present threat.
  • 32-player multiplayer with real-time armor and weapons customization, plus an all-new multiplayer mode that combines player modification and tactical objectives.
  • Emergent gameplay means that in-game actions affect future outcomes and give each player a unique experience.
  • The CryENGINE 2 engine delivers the most realistic environments, spectacular special effects, physics game engine, lighting system, and enemy Al.
  • Does not come with the Sandbox mod tool.

Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is the long awaited follow up to 'Farcry' (one of the best FPSs of 2004). We now finally get a look at this newest offering.

Here are some of the things that I've liked in the single player mode...

1.)This is a FPS in which your nano armor gives you special 'skills"; these 'skills' include enhanced speed, strength, armor and invisibility; and you'll need them all to survive.

2.)Graphics that are smooth and excellent audio; both add a spooky, creepy ambiance to this jungle based horror game.

3.)The ability to use and control vehicles (on land, at sea and in the air), as well as the mounted weapons on these units.

4.)Generally good (but not great) enemy AI! Although some will just stand out in the open, there are some that will sneak up on you or hide behind cover; also they must reload empty weapons. Due to their larger numbers and the fact they're usually spread out, will necessitate your using your special 'skills' and the surrounding environment to defeat them. This is the basic, reoccurring challenge for this game.

5.)Easy, anytime save/loads with F5/F9 respectively, as well as game generated checkpoint saves.

6.)If your taking a beating (or find it too easy), you can change the degree of game difficulty anytime, as you play; you don't have to start a new game. This is a nice feature!


1.)I've had a couple freeze ups, requiring reboot; also some minor video fragmentation (after extended periods of play).

2.)I found the controls on flying the VTOL (vertical take-off & landing) craft were difficult to operate (the plane just didn't seem to respond to commands quickly) with the result of frequent crashes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost, But Not Quite a Great Game November 24, 2007
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
System: Dell XPS 410
Duel Core E6600
2gb RAM
Nvidia 640 mb 8800 GTS

I was actually somewhat disappointed in this game, I hate to say. I looked forward to this for over a year.

First the good. Graphics are very good even with the low to medium settings I was required to use because of my system. Audio, for the most part, was excellent. AI was a slight step up from other games in the genre, but not as much as I had expected. The game-play was engaging - at least for most of the game.

The only negative aspect in the graphics and sound department was the tremendous amount of computer power that must be needed to run higher settings. Although I have a mid to high computer system, I was required to run the game at a low resolution with advanced settings set to either low or medium. I couldn't come anywhere close to my monitor's native resolution of 1920 x 1200, even with all settings on the lowest setting.

What was odd is that if I let the game detect and set "optimal" settings, it would select a a medium resolution and high advanced settings. But playing at that, I could only get maybe 12-15 fps. So, the detection system was useless. I had to tweak manually to get the framerate to acceptable levels.

I finally was able to get the framerate at an average of 35-40 fps - which is very acceptable, however, every few minutes, I would hit a "bump" and my framerate would briefly drop to 0 and then bounce back up to the 35-40. Because this was happening so often, I had to take another step back in the graphics department and play on DX9 mode instead of DX10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Incredible but short November 18, 2007
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In spite of having to run the game on med-low resolution settings I found the game to be excellent. The story flows very well and you never get bored with it. The graphics are excellent, characters are well played for the most part, and the final battle is epic. Even the escort mission (the achillies heal of most games) felt realistic and worked well.

So why 3 stars? I'm taking off .5 because for some reason it won't allow me to map the flight functions to my joystick (wingman extreme). Not that big of a deal since the mouse keyboard does actually work in the game but not very well.

Now for the big hit. I'm taking off 1.5 stars because of the length. I just don't get games these days. They make them with flashy graphics, hopefully a good story, and if it's a really good game it feels epic. However, they make them so short that it just leaves you feeling empty. After the final battle in Crysis I was sitting there waiting for the next section to load when the credits came up. I sat looking confused for a few minutes before I turned the monitor off in disgust.

It's like if they had released Deus Ex and it ended the game after you retrieved the virus or System Shock after you got to the second level of the station or Far Cry after find out about trigens. I brought the game home Friday, played from about 7pm-11pm. Got up the next morning and played from about noon-11PM. I finished the game just after 11PM and I was playing on the hardest difficulty level, took breaks for meals, and ran out to the store to pick up snacks.

It used to be that when you bought a game, you expected to get at least a week of play out of it. Are we now reduced to less than 24 hours?
