"Mindblasting!"
5 stars"

This game is just awesome!!! It is one of my 2 most favorite PC games, the other one being Doom 3. Crysis has got some cool and innovative features that make the game more fun…cough play it hard mode cough. The harder the game is, the more better it is. This game will be awesome if you have surround sound speakers (just a tip), i played it without surround sound and i am definitely satisfied.
Graphics is awesome.
Storyline is good.
Setting is awesome.
Action is ULTIMATE!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 out of 5

"wow"
5 stars"

Now the cheap graphic cards are out that can run crysis at fairly high settings, i gave it another try.

i attempted to play crysis several times before and gave up playing after about 30mins of playing due to boringness, but this time i put some effort and put more time on playing. and it just blew my mind!

Things get really interesting when those aliens start to appear, i was all of a sudden 100% fully into the game.

so if you find it boring and not your cup of tea, just stick to it till you see aliens appear, it will turn the game upside down. The game becomes unbelievable.

"Fantastically immersive game that could have been even better!!!"
4 stars"

Crysis is a fantastic and graphically immersive first person shooter that could have been (impossible as it may seem) even better. Like its predecessor Far Cry it is a shooter for intelligent gamers because it rewards smart tactical play. Dumb beeline charges towards the enemy without cover will frequently end in death on the harder difficulties although I noticed it is not as unforgiving and frustrating as Far Cry. Yes, the graphics are unsurpassed and it ran well (20–35 fps, medium settings) on my Toshiba A300 laptop with its modest Radeon ATI 3650 gpu with 512 mb of RAM. But what sets Crysis apart (in addition to its gorgeous graphics) is the immersive gameplay that the nano suit (you wear) allows. Having said that there are a few shortcomings that could have been improved. The second half of the game with the aliens was not of the same quality as the first half, where you're fighting North Koreans because of two reasons. Considering the open nature of the game was one of its promoted good points, the alien fight was a bit of a scripted “on the rails clay pigeon shoot” initiated by a pointless and overlong “swim” through the alien compartment in the cave. Secondly, the frame rate drops significantly in the alien fighting section. I had to reduce my 15.4" laptop screen's resolution from 1024×768 to 800×600 to maintain playable frame rates. Another issue is the enemy AI. The AI Korean soldiers are intelligent in some respects ie they will seek you out, hide behind cover, flank you etc but glaringly dumb in these specific situations, even on the Delta difficulty level. They don't seem to show any concern and agitation when they discover their dead mates. That should automatically set off a hunt for you, in my opinion. They seem to lose interest in you if you move out their designated “active boundary.” When you sneak/snipe them from the watch/sniper towers they won't climb up to investigate (even without using the silencer) or at the very least blow the tower (and you) up just to make sure. Lastly, considering this is a sneaky asassin game where is the knife, the weapon that is associated more than any other–with the assassin's pro­fession? Combined with the invisibility cloak it would have made for many thrilling silent kills. Now these issues should not stop you from acquiring this game. This is still a fantastic game.Crytek sets very high gaming standards which make some other shooters seem simplistic in comparison and Crysis embodies that philosophy well. I recommend you get Crysis for some joyously memorable hours of immersive modern day sniper-ninjaring. You will not regret it.

"Boring"
2 stars"

Crysis failed to engage me at all. I played through the first act just hoping that something interesting would happen – after floating around for what felt like forever in the beginning of the second act I decided just to give up. Haven't given it a second thought since shelving it.

"Average gamplay, impressive engine"
3 stars"

I found Crysis to lack Gameplay to warrant it being a great game. Instead the developers have left it to the graphics to do the work. And work they do! I still haven't found a better looking game on PC!

Storyline is forgettable and characters aren't any better. Design work on locations and characters is great however. Lots of different terrain and variations in scenery. The nano suit abilities are fun to play with and do make the gameplay more fun.

All in all this is a rather standard FPS enhanced by one of the most impressive visual engines to this date.

Description

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.

FEATURES:
  • 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.

  • Emergent gameplay means that in-game actions affect future outcomes and give each player a unique experience.
  • Highly robust and easy-to-use mod toolset allows players to create their own expansive levels for both multiplayer and single-player modes.
