How is Crysis a "standard" shooter? Nothing about it is standard. Call of Duty is standard. Battlefield is standard. Medal of Honor is standard. Crysis is the exact opposite of standard.
Generic shooter with special powers. It's got nothing on Deus Ex.
It wasn't even that great of the standard shooter, the powers were pretty poorly done (Power was mostly useless other than the occasional jump, and sprint didn't lend itself too much and armour is just a regenerating shield, stealth was a nice feature though) and the difficulty curve was utterly broken, the freaking helicopters at the beginning were far harder than anything the aliens threw at you, I breezed through the 2nd half of the game. --- FC: 2921-9087-2265
