has been on my to-play list for a while now. I figured it was a good time to give it a run with my recent upgrade
... what an awesome game! Just stunning. The open environment in this game really is something special. I cranked all settings to maximum. Even my new GTX580 was hurting with GPU usage up over 90% and the temp increasing 25'C. Outstanding graphics (albeit dX9 as I'm still on XP). The story is engaing with gameplay having variety and not too linear. The weapons are solid. Overall a great game and well worth playing especially if you can do so in all it's glory. AI isn't the best but I've seen much worse and the Elimination of General Kyong mission was rather lame. That and a few minor bugs throuhout the game are the only real negatives in my opinion.
Another excellent thing regarding this game is it's quite a challange being one of the hardest 'normal' mode games I've ever completed.
I rate this game 8/10 Neddie dolls ;P
I've just started Crysis Warhead
, more on this soon.
edit: I finished Crysis Warhead. Definitely not as polished as the original but still worth a run. Even though it's a standalone game you need to have played the first Crysis to know exactly what's going on. It also crashed on me about a dozen times throughout the game. I preferred the ending to Warhead to the ending of the original. Overall though the original Crysis is a much better game.
On a side note. I've added a Crysis Wars server to my to-do list.
