Default IGN's review of Crysis

http://pc.ign.com/articles/834/834614p1.html

They gave it a 9.4. Oddly enough, that's the same score they gave COD4...



... and I can smell the flames already.

that whole review could have been summed up with: "plays same as demo, takes about 10 hours to complete, crap ending".

I thought it sounded like he gave it a fair shake. He mentioned that there was a good variety of gameplay and that the levels were as open ended as promised. I guess were in store for a cliffhanger ending though, which is fine by me as it means Crysis 2 is probably soon to be in the works.

The tone of the review lacked enthusiasm. I don't think the reviewer loved the game. I hope it's just him.

I loved Far Cry and I loved the demo so I'm pretty confident it will be great for me.

Some people think Crysis is a 10 out of 10 game. If they really believe that they are in for a huge disappointment. I'm mean not as big as Halo 3 was.

I feel like its been so hyped, that it doesnt matter how awesome it is, even if it somehow manages to reach out and fondle my private parts and light me a cigarette afterwards, ill STILL be disappointed in it..
Havent really gotten around to try out the demo yet, still spending my precious free time on The Witcher.
Besides, waiting for a 8800GT to arrive and I think this game is best saved til then..
Gonna try to lower the expectations to "another pretty shooter" before I play it hehe.

The higher the expectations = the bigger the disappointment regardless of how good it really is.

Same goes for everything in life. Thats why its best not to be so hyped up about anything.
