"You will be in a crisis if you don't buy Crysis"
Crysis is an almost realistic First Person shooter set in the Year 2019. Crysis is developed by Crytek, the makers of Far Cry. Your character wears a nanosuit to give you abilities such as invisibility, super strength, maximum speed, and maximum armor.
Gameplay 9/10 This game is very fun to play. You wear a nanosuit to give you superhuman abilities to help you get through the levels. There is also a nice array of weapons that can be used in this game. This game includes driving vehicles and a map editor to create your own maps and missions. With destructible environments, you can also do things such as shoot down trees, blow up buildings, punch vehicles through the air and more. This game also features a multiplayer mode with up to 32 players online with Power Struggle and Instant action game modes.
Story 10/10 - One of the best stories in a video game that will literally leave you hanging. When you finish this game, you will be wanting Crysis 2. The storyline ends with a cliffhanger. Crytek said this will be a trilogy so we will just have to wait for Crysis 2.
Graphics 10/10 - This game still looks great even if you have a low end PC. I am running Crysis on a 2 year old PC with DirectX9 in medium settings, with some options on low, and this game still looks great. The water is the best I have ever seen in a game, and the face textures look very realistic.
Sound 9/10 - The sound in this game is average. There aren't any major flaws in it. You get good gun sounds, explosion sounds, and voices. The voice acting in here is fairly good. This game sounds good with a subwoofer when there are alot of explosions and fighting occurring.
Replay value 10/10 - This game is just about average in length. There is plenty to replay in this game. There are 4 difficulty levels to choose from in this game. Once you finish the game in one difficulty, try again in a higher difficulty. What also adds to the replay value is the multiplayer. You can face up to 32 players over the internet.
Final Recommendation - Buy this game NOW! This is one of the best first person shooters I have played in years. Even if you don't have a high end PC, the gameplay of this game makes Crysis worth buying.
