Here's how I feel about "Crysis":

Stunning visuals. Some of the best done in any game to date. Period.

I didn't like that my cloak mode dropped so fast when moving, or that many foes seem to be able to take at least twice the number of shots I could in my uber suit before dropping.

I have been putting off addressing the North Koreans in the game for a while and am going to now. When I played the demo the way they were portrayed offended me. I am not sure why and it did. I told myself to get over it, and that it wasn't a big deal. I bought the retail game anyway.

Well here I am now and it still really bothers me for some reason. Yes, I know it's just a game and I seem to have a problem with taking real life groups of people and turning them into corny stereotypes to dehumanize them so they are easier to slaughter in a video game. No, I wouldn't feel better if they were; Germans, Japanese, Vietnamese or Iraqi. I guess this is why I don't often buy soldier boy games.

I don't want any game changed or censored. I thought I'd "get over it" and I haven't.

After I did get over the stunning visuals I ceased playing the game because then it just felt "been there and done that to me".

Even tho I wasnt a fan of FarCry, and this reminded me of it many times, I was absolutely loving this game. The suit was cool, for awhile at least. And I totally dig the weapons mod/suit screens. Nice touch. And of course it's visually stunning. And I found myself compelled by the story. But, that freaking alien no gravity horse**** levels killed it for me. Maybe it didnt help having my bro peer over my shoulder cracking up saying "what the hell is this crap?" Some of the best laughs I've had in a long assed time tho.

But now I feel kinda bleh about finishing it...

That alien level would have been much better if it was more disorienting. I hated the fact that the game 'autorighted' yourself.

I finished it up this weekend. Very short game, but it was done very well. My favorite thing was the fact that saved games would re-load in about 2 seconds. It made trying different approaches more interesting.

This game is ahead of its time though. Definately worthy of a replay after we get better graphics cards.
