Excerpt: Back in 2007, Crysis felt like a game from the future. Running on a top-spec rig, no other game could compete. Hell, very few PCs could even run it at anything above medium settings, and even today the game is still being modded and tweaked to look more impressive.
Conclusion: Also no shortage of enemies to throw off ledges and mountains is a plus as well. Sound quality is top notch graphics are great except for a few technical issues. It is a solid FPS and shouldn't be missed by anyone who is a fan of the FPS genre.

Conclusion: As a budget title available for download over Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, Crysis simply soars. It’s worth noting that the multiplayer component has been removed, but then you can’t have everything.
Excerpt: When Crysis 2 came out on the console, I admit that I didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t rush to pick it up. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m the kind of person that hates jumping into a series in the middle and felt that IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d be missing something if I didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t know the...
Pros: + Stunningly remastered visuals, + Linear without being restrictive, + Attention to detail is everything
Cons: Occasional visual glitches, Vehicle controls are too loose
