Re: What Score Do You Give Crysis?
Well, I finally beat the game on Hard. So, I can finally rate this game.
It's really a tale of two games.
The first half is like FarCry's first half. You get a nice taste of freedom along gorgeous visual splendor. The first half of Crysis blows away any other FPS.
The second half has flying the vtol, zero g, escorting you know who, and some nice final battles. In the second half you totally lose any sense of freedom and exploration. The second half is a more linear affair like COD4.
Unfortunately Crysis does not do linear as well as COD4. COD4's linear gameplay is always fun and never boring like the vtol, zero g, and escort missions in Crysis. I must also point out that the ship in COD4 looks better than the Crysis aircraft carrier but runs much more smoothly.
I must aslo complain that the female supporting NPC looks terrible. Couldn't they find a cuter girl?
The escort mission was certainly a low point. It's completely out of place in this game.
However, the final boss battle and ending helped to bring life to what was a really unchallenging and dull second half.
If the second half were a separate game I would give it a 7.5.
I would give the first half a solid 10--totally outstanding.
I would rate Crysis a 9.0 if it weren't for the outstanding Sandbox Editor. The editor is very promising and I suspect we're going to see some amazing mods.
Crysis gets my vote for PC GOTY.
I score Crysis: 9.5
