    A level missing, glitchy graphics, 5 years late, bugged to hell and no multiplayer - and they expect us to pay more than the superior PC version now costs? A good lesson on how to make easy money from idiots.

    This really is a game that should have remained back in the past. It might not be that old, but when all it had going for it was the tech, it should never have been ressurected in an inferior port. Hardly anything in the game makes any sense - the AI is really terrible, and this espeically noticable if you try to play it stealth. $2 on steam might be worth it - anything more is just a rip-off.

    This is not Crysis, it's Crysis 1.5

    There are many differences to the original game. The nanosuit is not the same as in the first game, it's the one from Crysis 2 which was far worse. Armour mode is not default and now uses energy even when not being shot at. Speed mode is not a selectable mode anymore and strength mode is the default mode insterad of armour.

    There are many differences to the original game. The nanosuit is not the same as in the first game, it's the one from Crysis 2 which was far worse. Armour mode is not default and now uses energy even when not being shot at. Speed mode is not a selectable mode anymore and strength mode is the default mode insterad of armour. Sprinting in speed mode is far slower too.

    Enemies are in places they never used to be and missing from places they used to be. They're far easier to kill and their AI is far worse.

    A whole level is missing and while it wasn't the best level in the game, it was still a part of the original game that hasn't been included here. Textures are terrible and the lighting is too. A lot of sounds have been changed, including most of the guns. The FY71 sounds so bad compared to the original.

    All Crytek had to do was downgrade the graphics so the game would run on consoles. Instead they have remade the game so it's a different experience. Why they changed the nanosuit to the same one from Crysis 2 is beyond me. This is meant to be the original game, not the sequel. Crytek have failed miserably again just like they did with Crysis 2. The original Crysis on PC was one of my favourite games of all time but Crytek have lost all my respect with a failed sequel and failed port. Won't be buying any more of their products.

    If you can, get Crysis for pc. Even on medium graphics it will look better than this port. You'll also get the full experience and get to play the game in the awesome way it was originally intended. If you want to use a controller, the pc version has always supported a 360 controller anyway.

    This port deserves a 0. It's not the original Crysis, it's been modified and made far worse.

    There's a lot of potential here, but it's wasted on a glitchy product. With graphics and sound poping in and out, what should have been a great port is actually a lacklustre effort from Crytek UK. Graphics were really the only thing going for Crysis, without that you're left with a hollow shell of an FPS. Crysis 2 looks and plays far better.

    So PC fans, don't panic – even though I personally believe Crysis for console is better than the PC version, it's not meant to totally replace the PC version. Rather, its purpose is to give the original Crysis experience to the masses, and honestly, why wouldn't PC gamers want that?
  2. As a single-player experience, it's every bit the quality of a full-priced shooter. [Christmas 2011, p.97]

    It's aged very well and is a great addition to console. Shame about multiplayer, though. [Christmas 2011, p.92]
