Earth, 2019. A team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea, and all contact with them is lost when the North Korean government quickly seals off the area. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of nanotech-suited Delta Force operatives, and tensions quickly rise to boiling point. But when a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island, generating an immense force sphere that freezes a vast portion of the area, the two warring factions must unite, fighting epic battles through tropical jungle, flash-frozen wastes, and finally in the heart of the alien ship itself for the ultimate zero-G showdown.
You don't need story to enjoy this game. But yet, there is still a story.
You don't need good graphics to enjoy this game and still, the graphics are absolutely incredible.
The world is about as immersive as that of BioShock or Portal. It's beautifully drawn and quite intriguing.
Need I say more?
Magnificent. A landmark in gaming. Truly an experience for me to play.
When people think of Crysis, all they think of are pretty graphics since this is why it was the most revolutionary game in recent years. Still, noticeable effort has gone into the single player and multiplayer of Crysis, making it one of the best shooters of all time. Innovative gameplay changes up the feel of Crysis, and they perfected the mechanics so it's not clunky at all.
The campaign is lengthy and sandbox style, while multiplayer has larger maps than Battlefield 3 as well as more compact maps so everyone is happy. Deathmatch and "Power Struggle" are the only multiplayer game modes, the latter is very strategic and the best PvP game mode ever created. Crysis multiplayer is one of the most fun games ever made, right next to its sequel, Crysis Wars.
When it comes down to modding, there isn't a game better than the Crysis series. Not only do they include a bunch of xml and lua files for easy, quick changes, all of these files are compressed in simple .pak files so you can use WinRAR to access them. The CryEngine 2 SDK was as revolutionary as the engine, making it much easier for people to create mind-blowing levels and much more.
Crysis is without a doubt the best all-around shooter: very good single player campaign, excellent and highly innovative multiplayer with a learning curve, and unrivaled mod support.
Brilliant game, Truly Epic Storyline,Awesome graphics and physics, but the downside is the load on your pc in general. The multiplayer is fun but could be polished.
-Different Game Styles
-Variaty of Weapons
-Gravity Defying Frogs
-Hell of a strain on you PC
I would have loved it if Crysis 2 was an immediate continueation.
