"Awesome Graphics"
4 stars"

The metal box made me buy this game. I knew nothing about this game other than it has the most incredible graphics, yet the box is so cool, that I couldn't restrain myself from getting it.

Anyway. Review.

The most obvious thing to note about this game is the graphics. I have to run this game on a mac laptop, so I have to turn all settings to low. But even still, the graphics are incredible.

Gameplay-wise, it is quite revolutionary. The adapt to survive idea is fantastic. That suit is great fun to use and sneaking up on someone with cloak-mode turned on, giving him a surprise and seeing the reaction of the guy as you suddenly bash him in the face with strength mode is very hilarious.

The first part of the game is very fun and extremely well made. Killing people in different environments, and different situations is exciting. However, once the aliens come, it becomes impossibly difficult, and eventually, overdone, and tedious. The last few missions are terribly made, and the end is very stereotypical.

Also, the first part of the story is believable. But the last few missions just ruined it.

Online can get boring very quickly, as there are only 2 game modes.

So, as a whole, I gave this game a 4 star rating. The fun bits are indeed very fun. But the rest is really not so fun. In fact, frustrating.

"Incredible FPS"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Crysis will no doubt pickup dozens of game of the year rewards; but it absolutely deserves them. This incredible game has the best real-time rendering visuals known to man. The gameplay is solid, sound is awesome, AI is quite good and multilayer isn't bad either, not to mention the whole epic-ness of this game is incredible. While it might be a joy to look at, Crysis really does eat your PC for breakfast. So your going to need a good rig to be able to play this game. Although I was impressed with my aging system. AM2 3800+, 2Gb Gskill RAM, X1950pro @ 1280×1024 no AA, all setting on medium besides Shadows; and I can get a very playable game with 20–40FPS. Sure it slows down in high-action, but playable none the less.

If your a PC gamer with a solid rig, buy this game. You won't regret it.

"Very cool game!"
4 stars"

Very fun and exciting game, beautiful detailed landscape and scenery.

Pros:

  • Excellent effects
  • Fun cars and vehicles to drive
  • Extremely detailed graphics, looks very real
  • Excellent powers and missions

Cons:

  • VERY demanding game (I have a 512 8600gt and can run on medium)
  • A few glitches here and there.

Id say 4 stars!

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.
