Default Re: I finally set down and finished Crysis

I put off playing Crysis for quite a while but I started really putting some time into it a few days ago. I'm just about to the end (carrier is being attacked) and I have to say I'm completely impressed.

The flying mission kinda sucked (due to the backwards flying controls that can't be changed), but even on Delta the only level that really gave me any big problems was the first fight with the Korean nano suit guys in the swamp. I lowered the difficulty just for that battle and then put it back up to Delta afterward.

I have to say, I couldn't stand Far Cry (what little I could get myself to play) but this game is just blowing my mind. It can be frustrating some times, but its just so damned fun! I actually thought the zero-g cave levels were awesome. It was a little disorienting but the visuals and the sounds were just amazing (as with the rest of the game) and it was an interesting break from all of the hiding in bushes tactical stuff.

I really thought the game was going to bomb completely after the first half like most people have said, but I've enjoyed it from the beginning all the way to the end (well, almost the end).

The production values on this game are just out of this world. I really don't expect to see another game with this much complex, varied scenery and effects for a very long time. I know visuals alone don't make a great game, but good solid gameplay mixed with ground breaking visuals certainly do.

Sorry for foaming at the mouth, I'm just completely impressed. Maybe all the negative crap I've read lowered my expectations, but this is a hell of a lot more than I expected from this game.

Hopefully the last level(s) are as good as all of the ones up to this point.

EDIT: Also, FINALLY, a game worth upgrading for. This is one of the few single player first person shooters I can see myself replaying in the future on better hardware.

Default Re: I finally set down and finished Crysis

Well, I just finished it.

*spoilers*

The majority of the aircraft carrier part was fine, but the final battle out on the deck totally sucked.

It seemed really thrown together and was more irritating than fun because of the flying creatures that kept coming back to shoot the hell out of me.

There also wasn't any direction or hints while fighting the big spider robot and I had no idea that I was supposed to just keep shooting the body. It seemed to do damage for a little while, then it just stopped responding when I shot. I kept trying to shoot the legs and to run around the deck. I ended up firing some grenades at the body in desperation and it fell right over.

Then the part with the big ship was pretty much the same, except when I was supposed to use the tac cannon the game bugged and wouldn't let me lock on. I sat around trying to figure out what to do (while the people on the radio repeated the same thing over and over) and eventually got killed. When I respawned, the gun worked fine and it was over in a couple minutes.

The ending scene with the ship sinking was also unimpressive compared to the rest of the game. It was a cool scene but the visuals just seemed sort of bland for some reason.

I was very disappointed with the last level, but if (when) they make an expansion I'll pick it up. Overall, I give the game an 8/10. It'd be a 9/10 if the end portion wasn't lacking in so many areas. Crytek definitely knows how to make a great game, but it seems like they should have tested the last part of the game a hell of a lot more than they did to make sure it was free of bugs and was actually enjoyable.

Default Re: I finally set down and finished Crysis

I finished the game some time ago but I would agree with you Capt most of the first levels are very good and gets you really immersed. The zero G level was OK after I got the hang of it. The flying level really was poor imo. They could have done a better job of that.
Like you said with the spider robot it took me a while to work out you need to shoot it with the rockets I found on deck. Then with the big ship boss it didn't feel that a lot of thought was put into it. I think they must have thought lets put a big damm thing qt the end that you can kill fast if the TAC does not bug .

But I will play the game through again later this year once we get better hardware out.

It didn't occured to me that anyone could think the level was spend in a liquid as NO traces of liquid were shown up to the level (no jumping into liquid, no liquid filling the rooms) after the level (if you're "flushed out" of the mothership into the snow terrain, where was all the liquid?) or during the level (the game physics were clearly that of weightlessness, not liquid). Oh well...
