Default What The Big Deal

I notice that Crysis is that great, it has its own area. Why?

People are putting this game on a pedistal like its the alltime pc giant.

First off, is the story any good?

Is it cuz of the eye candy?

Whats the deal with this game?

Im not that impressed. It may be an eyecandy game but its a game for those who have the money to play it.

Has any other game got the attention this game is getting?

Its only a demo also. And its not enjoying on the average PC.

A game that can only be played on a ultimate gaming machine shouldn't be that popular cuz of the opprotunity to those who can only afford an average rig.

Yea the game looks oh so sweet and demo runs very well, but im one of the few who can say this.

That doesn't help popularity much if its limited to a certain group of gamers.

It's the technology and the opportunity to experience something different in an FPS--the nanosuit. The added freedom is sweet and so are the cinematic cut scenes which do worlds to move the narration forward and keep you wrapped up in the plot.

Oh and did I mention the game looks utterly amazing.

What are you a communist?

It'a a cutting edge PC game. Not a watered down unoptomized consolized game. That makes it special.

The fact that if you crank up the graphics it becomes too demanding for any PC on earth makes it that much more exciting for people who love tinkering with computer hardware to squeeze out every drop of performance.

Get it?

Levels rarely play out the same on very large environments. Suit abilities change gameplay and allow you to play more specialised (eg speed for rushers, cloak for stealthy guys). Game looks pretty good, some may agree.

On top of all that, the game is probably one of the most hyped PC games in the last few years and it delivers.

Those videos that Crytek have been feeding us over the last year appears to have done the trick for them.
