    Just completed, very good although crysis 2 was far better.

    The last couple of hours are average at best but thankfully the earlier levels are mostly high standard.

    Terrible end boss as usual with a pretty pants ending.

    Game is short but not too short, feels about right , it took me seven hours.

    Best take my rental back now so someone else can enjoy it. Oh and zero technical issues with Xbox version.

    7.

    Heh!

    He was right though.

    Also, Crysis 3 is good. Far better than the restrictive, series-of-shoeboxes, paint by numbers '2' but waaaay behind the gloriousness-ness-ss of the original Crysis.

    Stunning to look at for the most part, the opening in-game cut-scene was difficult to distinguish from pre-rendered material running all at Very High.

    Multiplayer can fuck off thogh as it's for chavs and gays and gay chavs!

    Do people forget about the average opening levels and poor closing ones when talking about the original crysis?

    Crysis's middle levels were brilliant, Crysis at it's best - huge environments, loads of freedom, but interesting with enough to keep you occupied. The earlier levels were big, but a bit sparse. And the closing levels were poor. Crysis 1 was half a great game. For me 2 was the better game overall. I'm looking forward to 3, but waiting for a price drop.

    I love playing this game online, but I have a very big problem by keep clicking the right thumb stick down while in mid shooting, and causing me to do a melee attack instead. I am losing so many kills by doing this. Am I the only one who has this problem when shooting.

    As I played through it again recently, so I remember just fine what all the maps were like. The issue is that, Crysis is a corridor shooter trying to pretend it's not. The visuals were bland, the maps were uber restrictive and the whole thing felt like a massive step backwards.

    Crysis was good because I enjoyed being immersed in the world and discovering for myself the best tactical solution to the scenario. Crysis 2 had to paint the limited options over the screen in neon for you in every new shoe-box you encountered.

    Actually - the biggest thing missing from Crysis 2 which makes a very welcome return in 3, I can take my time! 2 was all 'GO GO NOW NOW!' and there are elements of that in 3, but I've been able to ponder and procrastinate over levels far more than Crysis 2 ever had the patience for.

    So, you may well prefer Crysis 2, but that probably means you don't like the essence that made the franchise great.

    @silentbob

    If the essence of what made crysis great is having the freedom to plan your attack, take your time and play how you want. Then I do like it, but I felt I was able to do that in both C1 and C2.

    I liked the original crysis, I liked it a lot. As I said, I thought the opening levels were a bit sparse (but still decent), and the later levels with the aliens were poor. But the middle levels were good, really good.

    Crysis 2 had a great balance between structure and freedom in my view. The vast majority of the time the environments gave you enough freedom to approach situations in different ways, they were great self contained play spaces. It had great pacing, big fire fights, small fire fights, a bit of everything.

    As for it being all 'GO GO GO' I don't agree. I rarely felt rushed in C2. Thats one of the reasons why I liked it, I hate being rushed through levels. There were some parts where the pacing was more forced, but not many, and they helped to mix things up a bit. The tactical visor assessment thingy was a bit poo, you're right. But I just didn't use it. So there ;)

    I can see why some prefer the wide open nature of C1, I just wish it had been great all the way through.

    I look back on Crysis 2 as a "Greatest Hits" of Crytek. It nicely distilled the gameplay into those little 'shoeboxes', as silentbob described them.

    For sure the need to explicitly say "hey, guys, did you know you could SNEAK or ASSAULT or SNIPE your way out of this situation?!" at every opportunity was retarded, but certainly not enough to taint the fun. I loved the procession of sandboxes, each a winner, over the emergent but occasionally wonky battle encounters of the original.

    Great as Crysis 1 was, I still remember the abject frustration of some of the larger areas where an enemy would be hiding in a building and I couldn't find them and the game wouldn't move on until I'd done so. Or the physics glitches making a core target invulnerable, the utterly wank later levels etc. etc.

    Crysis 2, being so tightly choreographed in the freedoms it offered, sidestepped all of that quite nicely. I also have less time to game, so it was nice to have it served up in palatable chunks. Liking C2 certainly doesn't mean I didn't like the essence of C1 or Far Cry before it.

    There's got to be a middle ground, and I'd hoped Crysis 3 would be it. Haven't managed to pick the game up yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

    I think you'll like Crysis 3 a lot in that case Phattso.

    The bottom line is, Crysis felt like a living breathing world which you were allowed to roam around and shoot people in, Crysis 2 felt as if, should you walk up to a building and kick really hard, it's fall over revealing a pile of balsa wood struts behind it. Of course the breadth of the maps in Crysis and the scope of ambition it set itself meant there were glitches, but I don't recall any of them being game breaking at all.

    I also believe that that switch of game design between 1 and 2 was dictated purely by the requirement to shoehorn the game onto consoles rather than any distillation of gameplay. With 3, they've clearly learned how to expand those limits and still keep it running well on consoles.

    Anyway, as I say, I think Crysis 3 largely gets the balance right - it looks however like there won't be quite enough of it to keep me going without resorting to hateful Multi-player! ;)

    C3 is great but there are only six levels and two of them are average, one is bad and three are brilliant.

    Been replaying Crysis XBLA on Delta for the past few days. Stuck right on the final boss, annoyingly. Cancelled the preorder for this after comments on SP length (no interest in online here) and Lovefilm sent me a rental of it yesterday.

    One mission down, on hard mode. It's a bit bloody easy, isn't it? No glitches (yet) and it looks lovely, but it feels so by the numbers that it's a bit of a chore already. Looking forward to the second level opening up.

    Glad there's so much exposition and files, incidentally. I finally know what the hell the story was in two.

    Interestingly, I never felt the "living, breathing world" of Crysis 1. I could still see the paths through the level that one would take. C2 didn't do much to hide its boxed in nature though, I agree.

    I also believe that that switch of game design between 1 and 2 was dictated purely by the requirement to shoehorn the game onto consoles rather than any distillation of gameplay.
    Yeah, I felt that the changes in C2 were influenced in large part by the move to console - that said, they managed to get the original Crysis running (after a fashion) on the consoles so maybe we're both being a bit harsh. Perhaps it was just a bold experiment that managed to alienate more than it delighted.

    Hoping to get a chance to play Crysis 3 in the next week or so. Unless the new Tomb Raider turns out to be worth a go. :)

    Last level now. Hhhhmmmm bit of a mixed bag. Some parts of the game look great but the gameplay doesn't do anything new. Some parts are fun, Jurassic Park Raptor style level for one. Even named a Jurassic Park achievement for that level was a nice touch. Frame rate issues are still there sometimes.

    Just playing through on SS difficulty, seems more like normal difficulty.

    Like to try out the MP when my Internet is sorted out. Did enjoy the MP on C2, loved the balancing of your suit powers during matches. Made for a nice twist on the deathmatch games.

    I wish I could even start this! Every time I think about it, I keep getting drawn to play Skyrim again. I really should have started playing that in the summer when there are no releases.

    I think I will have to try hard to play this over the weekend.

    Hi mate
    I played, and enjoyed. It took me 4.5 hours. I didn't fly through the game and I played on "hard/Vet"
    You will cain it, in a couple of sessions, obviously you then have MP.

    I could finish it over a couple of nights then.....if my skills are up to it!

    How is MP this time out?

    I enjoyed Crysis 2's, but it was a bit laggy a bit too often, so I didn't stick with it for too long.

    :)
    I enjoyed it apart (only ranked up to 9, so didn't play it much) from the fact it has no Horde mode in ;)
    I have sent it back to Lovefime now, trying to get through at least1 more game before March 22nd...well before that with the demo and Shopto. I'm still looking forward to it...a lot!

    Some really poor glitched achievmente/trophies on this.

    Had the 'Post Human Warrior (10 kills from one supercharge)' and more significantly 'Professional Superhero (complete the game on Supersoldier difficulty)' achievements fail to unlock despite me doing what is needed. There's another common glitch for the Suited Up (max all suit upgrade modules) one too, but I didn't go for that.

    Not the end of the world but not very impressive at all either. The Supersoldier one seems to be a very common issue, and it's also the biggest one in the game.

    Oh well. Game was very, very easy anyway.

    I haven't read too much into it but I think it even extends to multiplayer. There's one called Commando, which is to get a primary, secondary and explosive kill in one life. I met those requirements like 4 times yesterday and nothing happened. Though I got the Specialist achievement (stealth kill, melee weapon kill and air stomp kill) no problem.

    It might be because I came to Crysis relatively late, but I never found it all that exciting. The 'open' world was cool, but at the same time it didn't really do much for me - preferable to corridors, definitely, but it didn't blow me away.

    Perhaps the best bit was the docks/AA turrets mission.

    Started this last night on Veteran, I think I should have gone supersoldier though as apart from deliberately dying while trying to stealth kill a hunter after messing it up I haven't been killed at all yet. Does it get more difficult later?

    I am still only on level 2. I spent ages lobbing large things at people for an achievement before realising it said they needed to be unaware. /o\

    Quite enjoying it so far, the bow is inspired and follows on well with me spending a lot of time playing skyrim recently.

    I haven't got as fed up with being told whether I have just activated 'cloak' etc as in crysis 2 yet. That may come in time though.
