Pros

  • Incredible graphics and cutting-edge technology represent the next level of PC gaming. The Nanosuit abilities enhance the game's open-ended gameplay, game features some of the best enemy A.I. that we have ever seen.

Cons

  • If you don't own a high-end gaming rig, you won't get the full experience; in fact, you'll have to spend a lot of time making tweaks to the settings to get it running right. DX10 performance is lacklustre: you get great results visually but your system's performance will take a big hit.

Bottom Line

Crysis is an enticing adventure all the way through to the end. It's a worthy follow-up to the excellent Far Cry and a great step forward for PC gaming as a whole.

Would you buy this?

When was the last time you upgraded your system? It doesn't matter because you'll probably have to do it again: Crysis is that demanding. But trust us when we say that it will be worth every single penny you spend! Read on for our review of the amazing Crysis!

When it was first formed, Crytek was a little known European developer with big dreams and aspirations. But unlike other upstart companies, they had an ace in the hole: a powerful and impressive graphics engine that they dubbed the CryEngine. The company then went on to prove that they weren't just a bunch of brainiacs with tech skills: they could craft a great gaming experience as well.

Crysis at a glance

With its dense tropical setting, lush level design and advanced enemy A.I., the company's first effort, Far Cry, earned it a heaping dose of well-deserved praise from game critics and gamers alike. Thanks to its early success, the expectations for the company's second game rose to atmospheric heights. The question became clear: could Crytek top Far Cry's visuals, which were widely considered to be some of the best ever seen, and expansive scope?

Well, the answer to that question is here and if you had any doubt about Crytek's abilities, it's time to abandon them -- Crysis is superior to Far Cry in every way that matters: technically, visually and conceptually. Powered by the high-powered CryEngine2, Crysis isn't a game as much as it is a force of (technological) nature.

But outstanding visuals aren't the only thing lurking under the hood: Crysis also features amazingly realistic A.I., an expansive and open-ended world, and intense action that's anchored by the awesome Nanosuit.

Oh but there's so much more so head over to the next page and start your journey towards gaming enlightenment with Chris Morell's in-depth review of Crytek's latest masterpiece!

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
