Crysis is a slick shooter through and through, and when the dust settles you realise what an accomplished piece of work it is, and the debate still rages between the fans of the original game and the fans of Crysis 2. No matter which side of the fence you're on, the game's lasting appeal lies in how fun it is to play. Crysis 2 is probably not the ideal return to form for the franchise, but as long as you know what to expect you'll find it more than satisfactory. Single player aside, this is a highly polished and finished game with a lasting appeal. It's not the kind of game you have to experience a second time to truly appreciate, but then, that's a good thing. The issue with the old game is that it somehow managed to feel like an over-ambitious bore-fest at times. This newer version smooths out the edges, adds a host of new modes and content to keep things fresh and even goes toe to toe with the more recent CryEngine powered versions of Crysis 3.
Crysis 3 marks a world first for Crytek - its been remastered for current-gen consoles, including PS4 and Xbox One. Using Nvidia's TressFX, Crytek has applied a new lighting and rendering solution to the game, meaning environments once viewed in low-detail, with all of their flashy lights and explosions are now noticeable and beautiful. This, alongside a host of other visual improvements - including new menus and interface elements - represent a complete overhaul of this already graphically impressive game. If you've got the previous version of Crysis, you'll be able to go back to those after the dust has settled, while if you're looking for something new, Crysis 3 Remastered is right up your street. 3d9ccd7d82
