    If you want to test your system and see just how much power you can put out (within the confines of a CPU limited game engine), then this will still show you what your rig is capable of. If you want a game that is perhaps the closest you can get to the opening fire fight of Predator (with similar otherworldly interference taking over) then this is without doubt a game you should grab! If you’ve played it before but don’t know where you put your CD-ROM or even your DVD copy of the game, this might be a good excuse to shell out for a new digital version. Even if you just want a fun sci-fi action first person shooter with some fun future tech and some lovely visuals… grab a copy!

    Crysis Remastered lives up to its name by putting even the most modern and performing hardware under pressure. All in all, the graphical makeover is pretty competent, despite some smudges here and there.

    Now Crytek has jumped onto the remaster train and is stepping into the trap it has built for itself: To release a new edition of a 13-year-old game in 2020, which again needs a really expensive PC for full graphics power, is a crazy idea.

    It still is a great shooter, but it undoubtedly shows its age. The graphical improvements are just anecdotic.

    I quite enjoyed the time I spent with Crysis Remastered. The game does hold up well to this day however the performance issues and the frustrating AI really hindered my enjoyment.

    You have to be willing to forgive quite a bit to enjoy Crysis Remastered. Questionable enemy AI is bad enough, but a reduction in content is baffling, and the effort feels incomplete because of it. The extra lighting is nice, but the spotty performance is the real sore spot, as it ensures that a polished and well-performing version of the game is simply unattainable. Unless you have issues trying to run the original on your system or absolutely need controller support, you're probably better off skipping this until a better, proper remaster comes along.

    Crysis Remastered isn’t the game we wanted it to be. It’s still fun to play and the many tweaks and additions to the graphics look insane… most of the time. Sadly, the fancy new raytraced illumination is useful only in some situations, while other key moments of the campaign are watered down. The PC version itself isn’t great either: it gnaws a single thread on your processor and faces common problems like bugs, crashes and more.

    La fisica dei oggetti resta come nel originale però devo dire che hanno inserito nelle opzioni una cosa molto divertente come Can you run Crysis? che però e molto pesante se la metti e ti fa scoppiare il PC in mille pezzi.

If you adjust some settings the game can run above 180 fps with high textures but there are fps drops on certain areas due to poor optimisation. Also the game is very short so it’s only recommended if you find it below half price. Expand

    The 7 Wonders of Crysis Remastered

    Episode 1: "Hell of an Optimization"

    It was known as the Crysis, short of a crying systems. Like the Turok 2 on N64 it ran like. It attacked our hardware, but we fought back, even thought we'd won. We lied to ourselves about a lot of things. That's why they developed Crysis Remastered. Though they've never told us if it was supposed to keep the nightmares in our GPU's or not, it didn't take long for the remaster to reclaim what was stolen from original. We think unused system resources are ours, the truth is - we just keeping it warm for the next Crytek creation.

    Heh, welcome to the new game, same as the old game.

    Episode 2: "The Stunt"

    No matter what man tells himself, in his heart resides the spirit of the fraud. He can build game engines or erect monuments to his greatness, but, at its core, he cannot escape his own nature. The method of false promises and paid reviews is beautiful in its simplicity. Is that coincidence that every culture on earth invented it independent of one another? Or is it something else? Something primal that allowed us to manifest it. Of course the trick about cheating is making sure you're the cheater and not the cheated.

    Are you the cheater or the cheated? I know for damn sure which one I am.

    Episode 3: "The Flaws and Defect"

    They used to call it stunning looking game, real center of cutting edge technological power, it still is I suppose. Saber Interactive corporation, grimmest company in the world, turned Crysis into its own personal playground. And somewhere here is the result of all their sinister power. But power means different things to different people. There's the power to take life of loved franchises, the power to make a difference, but real power, REAL power is understanding just two things: flaws and defect.

    I'm ready.

    Episode 4: "No More Fear, Maximum Saturation is Here"

    The saturation slider moves right 100% in a second. Created to fool the players, and fool 'em hard. The combination of 2000 years of human artistry and know-how, it has no agenda but the one it's been given. It knows only one purpose, only one end.

    It's the most unadulterated form of expression. And right now, devs have got a lot to say.

    Episode 5: "The Perfect Ascension"

    Error: Missing input parameter 'text'

    Final Episode: "End of Rays"

    To summarize all the bs above: game performs worse than original, looks worse (even with RT and other tech), lacks one big level from original (!), costs more and honestly it's nothing more than an attempt at making easy money.
    Slightly better than WC3: Refunded.

Textures, shadows,I was waiting for Crysis remastered aaaaaand... it's a disaster. Zero optimization, over-bright lighting, single threaded. Textures, shadows, whole graphics are worse than Crysis 3. The gap is 7 years! Even on top systems this "game" is lagging as hell. And the funny thing is... Developers are proud that even RTX 3080 can't handle this. This really hilarious - they are actually proud of that crappy code that isn't optimized at all. Imo, it's even worse than WC3 Reforged. I'll never buy anything from Crytek again. Expand
