Never understood all the hoopla for this game.

That looks really bloody nice on Xbox 360. Good to see it was possible after all!

Sure, it's a very pretty game. Even the vanilla game still is, nevermind high definition texture mods and the like. But like you said, the gameplay itself was "just" alright. I had some fun with it at least. I dunno, I just never got why people were losing their minds over it when it came out. Are graphics really that important?

I really enjoy playing this game. Just love the sandbox gameplay. I come back to it pretty regularly. I don't usually do that for single player shooters.

I recommend it to people who like that style of game. $20 ain't a bad deal even though it was like $7.50 on steam a few days ago. Currently, it's $30 on steam so you'd be saving $10 on XBL, at the moment.

There was no armor mode on pc it was your default setting with no crappy visual effect basically a halo shield.

Never on these consoles huh? I found Crysis to be more fun than the sequel.

Posted by ervonymous

PC version did have a regular run, toggling the speed mode also made your walk speed higher without draining the meter. You also had more sway in your aim if you didn't have strength enabled.

Looks really good ... though the vegetation, especially the grass, looks considerably thinned out in comparison to the PC version. Seeing those flat grass ground textures all the time is a little ... rough. You can tell they had to compromise quite a bit in order to port it to consoles.

I'm still going to buy it on console eventually since I like playing on console while lying in bed or on the couch. :P

Dude, you just embarrassed yourself. Crysis is one of the best PC shooters ever.

Posted by ManiacMaysin

Man, I don't remember stealth lasting that long in the original crysis!

Edited by CakeTeleporter

Crysis Warhead was the better game though but yes, it and call of pripyat are some of the best pc first person shooters.

Also Crysis would run fine at the time if you moved the sliders to the left.

Posted by deathstriker666

Fuuuuuuuuuuck, that looks terrible. Dramatically toned down the view distance and low-reseed all the textures making it look like a PS2 game. Hated the original Crysis on the PC, and wouldn't understand why someone would want it on a console.

Posted by warpbackspin

Looks great, will be a purchase later on.

You can't be serious...

right?

It must have been a pain in the ass for Crytek to get the game to look this good on consoles.

MAXIMUM Quicklook!

Posted by ManiacMaysin

I did not play this game tactically, at all. Watching brad play has made me reevaluate how I play shooters. I remember stealth being really short, though. Did they change it to crysis 2 stealth for this version or something?

Posted by Trylks

We need a side by side comparison!!!

Posted by Daiphyer

God Brad could not play this game any more boringly.

Posted by Jonnyflash80

@MattClassic: The hoopla was mainly because when it came out it was the best looking game on the PC. Also, it was ahead of it's time from a technical stand point because there was no consumer hardware available to run it on maximum graphics settings. It still is one of the best looking PC games 4 years later. Although the gameplay may be just okay or decent, it's still a beautiful game to look at.

That chicken is a bit .... rough around the edges.

Posted by 234r2we232

Sooooo... it doesn't have multiplayer?

Posted by lordofmidgets

Looks good, may get this. I like how the controls are like Crysis 2. The swapping of powers is what made this really hard for me on pc

Posted by Chris2KLee

Some fun tech in the game that made for good action, but the story of the game was utterly forgettable. Don't see myself going through it again.

I had way more fun with Crysis than with Half-Life 2 which I think is grossly overrated. I know it's shocking.

Posted by BeachThunder

I hope there's now an update for PC with some gameplay tweaks and achievements.

Also, I have to be in the absolute minority of people that thought Crysis' gameplay was better than its graphics, right? D:

I'm with you. I though Crysis played great, had great and varied levels and some really good moments.

Posted by fightstrife

Brad never fails to take a cool looking game and making it look boring and dull as hell .... -.-

Posted by I_smell

This game looks pretty sweet, maybe I should get this instead of RAGE.

Posted by dr_lovejoy

@ManiacMaysin: I definitely looks that way compare to what I remember. Vinny also mentions the same thing at 04:31. I would say they comprised more than just the visuals for the console versions which is a shame as it made the game a lot more harder not being able to just sneak past everything like Crysis 2.

Just a note: When you're cloaked and a guy shoots at you, I don't think it's because he's close enough to see through your cloak, but because he's blindly firing where he guesses you are.

It's been a while since I played so someone might correct me.

Edited by Slaegar

Removing max speed stinks. Originally you can sprint, go to max speed and normal run much faster, or sprint with max speed for a crazy boost.

You could sprint strength jump and armor on the landing and have enough energy to eat the landing without dying.

In the first crysis on pc max armor was the default as well and didn't cover up half your screen with hexagons.

Also the draw distance pop in is really noticeable.

The health seemed to go up really fast too. In the old one it went up slowly which gave you an incentive to use armor more.

Edited by ImBigInJapan

I really liked Crysis.

Posted by Slaker117

I think I might get this. The open ended nature of the game always interested me, but I never had a PC powerful enough to run it. Would be neat to see it running in it's full glory, but not enough to spend the money needed, and I don't mind the graphical hit.

What a terrible Quick Look...

I hated how the enemies could be bullet sponges. Sometimes I'd zoom in, shoot a guy directly in the chest and...nothing. No reaction and didn't die. Firing about 8 more bullets into him and he STILL doesn't react. Finally after like most of a clip he dies and they react to him dying. Also the Aliens were shit.

holy cow they must have been really selective with the screens they released, the difference between this and the PC version is far bigger than I expected it would be.

Crysis was demanding in 2007. It's really not now. Cards that are 5 years old can run it on high settings. (8800GTX for example, that's ancient!!)

Nope, no multiplayer.

Oh man. I would never have gotten through Crysis playing like Brad does. Never ever. >,<
