The enticing part in this game is the Nano Suit; a futuristic military outfit capable of providing extra strength, armour, speed & cloak. However all these features are drawn from the suit’s energy & when it gets depleted the player gets more susceptible to attacks & damages. Real time customization of weapons within the game makes the experience even more challenging. Once you set foot within the game, take some time to appreciate the graphics. This is one of the best looking games I have played till date. Impressive visuals & great texture sets the bar even higher for all the future games. Change of environment from lush green vegetation to zero gravity alien structure keeps the momentum well balanced. The enemy A.I. has been substantially improved over its predecessor Far Cry.
Before you can enjoy the world of Crysis make sure that your rig is capable of running this game. The system requirements are quite high & any mid level system will just bleed dry.
After the grand de tour with Crysis, Crytek presented us with even more action. Released in 2008 Crysis Warhead serves as an expansion pack to its original story. The timeline in Warhead runs parallel to that of Nomad’s, our earlier protagonist in Crysis. The player assumes the role of Sergeant Michael Sykes codenamed Psycho, a former British SAS operative who became the member of the newly formed Raptor Team. Once again you will require the Nano Suit technology which will provide you super human abilities to survive the hostile environment of Lingshan Island. Warhead is more action oriented & the story is far more coherent than it’s original. Single player campaign is tight while open environment offers each player to take a different approach to finish the game.
After a long wait, Crysis 2 finally made it. Being the most anticipated game of 2011, everyone had been fervently waiting for its release in late March.
Crysis 2 offers tough A.I., if you are playing at moderate difficulty you will need to strategize your move before getting into action with guns blazing. This is a beautiful game & will keep you engrossed for hours. Even if you are not an avid gamer you will still be awe stuck with whatever the world of Crysis has to offer.
Note : Crysis & Crysis WARHEAD are available in PC format only.
Crysis 2 is available in following formats : PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3
