Did i miss something here, Crysis 1 is one of my all time favorite game, gives you soo much freedom which Crysis 2 could not provide .... and an overall much better game than Crysis 2 !

Hopefully Crysis 3 (if it was to be release) gives you the sandbox style gameplay which Crysis 1 provided and not the crappy linear gameplay from Crysis 2

Sure Crysis 1 was open ended, but it was nothing more than a glorified interactive tech-demo. The gameplay was down right boring. Had the game not sported the visuals it had at the time, it would have never gotten half the fame it did. The graphics made the game. The gameplay was poor at best. No innovation, here's a pretty jungle,, shoot guys and aliens. Quite the original idea lol.

Warhead was just more of the same crap for me.

And while much linear, I felt Crysis 2 had some decent moments, overall not a very good game, but they did try harder and it was better than part 1, but by no means was part 2 a "good game".

I just don't see where they go with number 3, the sequel didn't sell very well, and this time around they didn't have the piracy on pc scapegoat to run to instead of admitting they made a bad game that was nice to look at like they did with the original.

I dunno. Crytek reminds me of early ID software, great engines, no gameplay. Kind of like a blond with huge knockers and no brains.

I will never understand this particular stance on Crysis as long as I live. Crysis was so much more besides being just a technology fest.

It's easy to figure out. People hated it because it made their just-purchased, brand spanking new several hundred dollar hardware seem like it didn't make a single difference because they couldn't max it out from the get-go and get a steady 60+ fps framerate.... which was the norm for a few years prior to it... and has been the norm pretty much ever since.

Seriously? I LOVE how people assume a judgement...any negativ e judgement on a PC game is because the user couldn't run it. lol.

The game sucked, that is all. I was fine with my 8800GTX at the time using hp's config with all high @ 1280x960 - it looked beautiful and ran fine. Here's the kicker kids, IT.WASN'T.ANY.FUN.

I'm sorry you have to revert to the age old "must of had shi*t hardware muwahaha, that's why he doesnt like it" look to the left, see my specs now? Guess what, I could max out Crysis today and still think it sucks.

People have this same argument with Battlefield 3 but for some reason it's forgivable.

Look, Crysis was basically the last PC-Exclusive that mattered. It was a great graphical effort and it put Crytek on the map as a developer. At the end of the day though, the game was as boring as watching a dead moth on a floor for 3 hours.

It was gimmicky and cliched. I'm sorry you can't accept Ifind the game crap for the game play and not for what my hardware is, was or will be in 5 years lol.

I couldn't max out Metro 2033 - hell still can't, I enjoy the game though. I couldn't max out the stalker games when they were new, I still enjoyed them. I have no problem lowering detail for the sake of game play. I want fun.

Actually the first Far Cry put CryTek on the map. If not for Ubisoft, we may not have even known who CryTek is today.

I cant even believe Crysis is being compared to Metro 2033. That game is just horrible. Its so linear its like playing something like Doom or DN. There is no exploring to be done on any level. Which takes away from any game when you have to stick to a very small path. Crysis was not "open-ended" by any means. It was the same as Far Cry in the sense that there was just a large game area to explore but you COULD NOT explore the entire island at once.

Stalker on the other hand, great game.

Crysis was more of a demonstration of CryEngine 2 than anything else, but that in no way made it a bad game. I thought the gameplay was great. The story was good. Crysis 2 on the other hand, completely pointless.

First Crysis bored me to hell gameplay wise but had excellent graphics.

2nd was better gameplay wise but graphics while very good, still wasn't as good as the first one.

i reckon a 3rd Crysis will either be the best of both worlds.. or a complete disaster.

personally i think Crysis 3 will be another Daikatana, a disaster destined to be remembered for generations.

Crysis 1 has no amazing story. It's like the Avatar movie where people thought it had the best story ever! Just to realize that the graphics were what had them drowned, not the story. It's taking longer for first Crysis players to snap out of this "best story ever" thoughts and get real. That's what I think

Sorry to spoil everyone's want for Crysis 3 but I distinctly remember hearing that Crytek were on board to develop the next Homefront game. I may be wrong but I am sure they were. Or maybe it was THQ buying the license to use cryengine3 for the next game. But I do remember the team behind the first and underwhelming Homefront 1 being sacked. I will try and find the article where I read it.

And yea... i guess since i didn't reference ANYBODY in particular, it must have really struck a nerve with you or something. Never knew that not mentioning anybody meant i was referring to EVERYBODY.

I know these things are a matter of opinion, but I seriously think that anyone that could possibly call any of the Crysis games crap, is full of crap.

It's like saying that Kate Upton is ugly. You may be in to brunettes or asians but...

Crayis games may not have been your personal favorite, they may not have been the greatest, but it's just silly to claim that they were bad games.

Badmouthing the Crysis series is simply trolling. Again, this isn't to say that it was necessarily everyone's perfect gaming experience, but the sheer quality of it puts it well above the vast majority of games.

As for graphics, the high-def textures and various mods have made Crysis 2 one of the best looking games there ever was. If you disagree, you obviously haven't MaLDo's high texture mod.

Oh, and for the guy that said that Warhead was a DLC at best (while loling), are your parents siblings? It was a stand alone, 6-7 hour game... Sheesh...

Crytek has more then one studio. If I remember correctly... there's five different studios.
As they also have one of their studios making that game Warface and another studio working on Timesplitters 4.

The Crysis games are done by the main Crytek studio. While other projects like Homefront 2, Timesplitters 4 and such... are done by Crytek UK and such.


Personally, I'd be up for a third game.
I was hugely disappointed with the first Crysis. While it's a visual wonder... as a game it was rather lacluster. With a subpar plot, broken pacing and paperthin characters.
Not to mention average gameplay that falls apart as the game's flow deteriorates.

Crysis 2 maintained a more solid pacing and flow from start to finish. More defined characters, and a more solid... better told story.
While Crysis 2 may not have been the benchmark achievement visually that the first game was, it's still a good looking game.
And to me, visuals don't make a game. As pretty as Crysis is, I can't stand to play it as the game bores the hell out of me.

Crysis WAS playable at highest settings when it was first released. You just needed top of the line hardware to do so. My 8800GTS at the time could play it at highest settings no AA at 720p so Id imagine an 8800 Ultra paired with a C2Q of that time would have been able to run it even better. Considering back then I was using a dual core S939 AMD.

So Id imagine if you had 2x 8800Ultras in SLi with a quad core overclocked, maxing Crysis probably wasnt too difficult.

There was no hardware when it first came out that would run it max at 1920x1080
