It's similar to COD4 in that you feel like you're taking part in an epic battle movie. What differentiates Crysis and COD 4 in that regard is that in COD4, each mission is totally different so there is more variety. With Crysis, it's all one huge mission so you're not tossed into dozens of totally different areas and settings. The good thing about it though is that it's a really good huge mission you're in and it's a very satisfying one the entire time.
I haven't finished either game yet but they're both doing a much better job of holding my attention than Gears of war. GOW is fun but seems like the same old same old after a while.
Crysis isn't perfect but it's heads and shoulders better than most FPS's out there. It's much better than farcry (though in crysis there's not as much indoor activity as I wish there were).
See I got bored with the same thing over and over and thought COD4 was better because it changed it up.
