Some of the best screenshots of Crysis.
It's supposed to be screenshots, not real photos. ;)
the only reason people play this, is bcuz its so pretty. if it was as ugly as mw2, no one would care.
it is an awesome game. i just finished another playthrough of warhead. it just didnt receive the kind of hype games like mw2 receive.
crysis definently buries modern warfare 2. But hype tends to get peoples attention a lot more. Hype effects people makn them think its the best thing ever. I dont know if any other game that makes u feel like your in a jungle crawling through bushes... and i mean really there...
someone doesn't praise or appreciate superior grafix unless it's on thier console....waaaaah
I honestly don't care about what graphics are possible with the top-of-the-line machine in the game, I want to see screenshots that will represent what I'll be seeing on my one year-old gaming laptop that can't play Mass Effect @1920x1200 on the best graphics without lagging all over the place.
@cgoodno Why are u here then?
Same reason you are, freedom to express my opinion. Just because you don't like my opinion doesn't mean it doesn't belong here.
@ cgoodno my laptop runs crysis on high settings at 30 fps .. and can do very high at 20 and its 2 years old :) and i bought it for 700 dollars when i get it. It has a 9700 gts in it. run it at 1440 widescreen resolution. So your argument about it.. needing a supercomputer.. well.. failed... but dont feel bad. That is the general thought that most people have come to beleive... cause of people who are mad their graphics cards that run half life cant run crysis.
Doesn't change the fact your post is irrelevant to the article. The article is about Crysis, not your personal views on graphics.
dude gameplay>graphics any day of the week. yes its awesome to look at but in the end its just another shooter. and im a big fan of pc games. pc>consoles anyday of the week also. but hackzorz on pc games and the price to keep up is why i play mostly on consoles. combat arms was awesome but the only map i loved was always being hacked, and so i quit playing. just bcuz there is a crap ton of fanboys on here doesnt mean everyone on here is. so take your ignorant comments somewhere else please.
How is not on topic considering the 'impressive screenshots' are of the game in the highest mode available and my post is about wanting to see it in a mode that I know my computer will play at? The topic is about screenshots, I replied about screenshots... @Kurylo3d: You do know this is a combination of Crysis 2 and modded with extremely high quality and high resolution textures in Crysis screenshots, right? Both, to view in full mode, require a good gaming computer to play at a smooth 30fps. Just because you can play Crysis with its own textures on HQ @ 1440 doesn't mean you will be able to do the same with these. In fact, with that video card, I can guarantee you won't. Heck, I wish I could play with some of the sweet texture mods for Oblivion, which these put to shame, but I just can't unless I play at a subpar resolution (I'm on a 1920 res. monitor) or on a desktop from the last year with a good video card and processor. Seriously guys, if you don't like my opinion, fine, but don't try and give reason why I should post it.
"1.1 - the only reason people play this, is bcuz its so pretty" The game was actually good
@all hating the game does mw2 have nano suits with speed, strength and cloak that can all be used in multiplayer with vehicles and crazy weapons?? this game is not like any other shooters i've ever played, and most of the rest are the same forumla.
Crysis is a really fun game. People pay too much attention to the graphics (and I don't blame them), but the game IS actually a lot of fun.
the people that say it has amazing graphics but bland gameplay clearly havn't played the game , the nano suit gives you many ways of approaching the enemy and its pretty deep as well also firing a weapon feels realistic
The jungle environments put even uncharted2 to shame. The character models are pretty close, Uncharted holds its own in that respect however we won't see these sort of environments until the next gen of consoles. Some of those screenshots look photorealistic.
how recycled the character models are until I saw these shots. Seriously there are only like 2 or 3 diffo. enemy models, wtf :S Plus im not sure, crysis' ingame scenery is quite a bit better than UC2's however the gap isn't that big to be fair. Plus UC2 has superior animation and things like cloth modelling. Seriously though this game was poor gameplay-wise. Uncharted 2's gameplay puts crysis to shame.
Well I think you've just shown you haven't played the game at all, really. Those aren't enemy models. That's a shot clearly taken from within the sandbox editor, showing one of the main story characters, code-named "Prophet." They just spammed in a bunch of different versions of his character model (the ones with the mask on are just generic nano-suit models). So in essence, those are all different versions of a SINGLE character, not a group of characters. And, honestly, the gap between environments in UC2 and Crysis is quite huge. UC2 can have very pretty, but very "closed" environments. Almost every item visible in the Crysis environment is interactive or has some form of physics operation being performed on it. Right down to the grass under your feet. Not to mention the fact that it's simultaneously performing a massive simulation of everything that's happening on the island at any given time. A stray gunshot may alert a soldier miles away from you. That does not happen in Uncharted 2, it simply doesn't delve into that level of detail. And I disagree about the gameplay comment, I found Crysis (the original) to be a more memorable gaming experience than Uncharted 2. Uncharted 2 was a great game, yes, but I didn't find it to be ultimately very lasting or memorable. It did what I expected it to do and then I moved on. Gameplay wise the two are hardly comparable, with one game relying on linear platforming and a third-person cover-shooting mechanic, the other on an open-ended, "super-powered" first person infiltration/exploration and combat mechanic.
I think that shows that you have not played Uncharted 2 at all, really. Ive played crysis all the way throughn and, lets be fair, the story was crap. The campaign was terrible and play it again and see how many different characer models there are. As for UC2 having closed environments thats quite laughable. There are many scenes in Uncharted 2 where the draw distance stretches for miles - pretty much every level in the game has a moment of awe in which you are presented with a vast scenic vista. There are physics calculations just like that in UC2, admittedly the whole "rocket firing into the distance" thing is impressive but it doesnt stop the gameplay from being terrible. As for memorability, I know it's your own, and only YOUR own opinion, but Crysis is easily one of the most forgettable games to be released. Aside from its prettyness, the story was generic and quite shockingly bad. An alien race invades a foreign country and you play as the American (surprise) army in fighting them off. Seriouly there's no plot at all and the lack of set-pieces in crysis is dizzying. The last few sentences were fairly contradictory. Uncharted 2 opens up a whole new level of combat compared to crysis because of its excellent cover mechanic and its use of the y axis xD You dont have any stealth mechanics in crysis either. All you do is wonder around an extremely 'samey' island for about 4 hours shooting people and aliens. Lets not delude ourselves, Uncharted 2 is more highly rated than crysis for a reason.
Oh, so that whole cloak ability was just thrown in to show off a simple shader effect on your gun then... And the fact that I manage to sneak into many objectives and complete them without alerting a single soldier doesn't happen, right? "I know it's your own, and only YOUR own opinion, but Crysis is easily one of the most forgettable games to be released." Somewhat of a contradictory statement there, no? That's like saying "it's your opinion, and this is a matter of opinion, but you're wrong, so it's not a matter of opinion." Clearly, you enjoyed Uncharted 2 a lot, as did I, but I find it hard to compare the two in terms of gameplay. Obviously, the story in UC2 was quite good and far better than that of Crysis, but that's a consistent difficulty when making the design choice to go with an open-ended, sandbox environment. You have to allow for a much higher range of possible outcomes to a situation, U2 follows a linear, very story-driven path in which nearly all outcomes and paths are pre-determined. It's all down to what you prefer. Not all games need an intensely crafted story to be great.
Play Crysis near max levels and you will see right away Uncharted 2 simply physic and graphic wise does not match up. I have bth games and playing Crysis Warhead at 1900 with AA on a 30 inch monitor at very high levels makes console games look last generation. Sorry to say this but its true.
shazui123: No stealth mechanics? Really? That pretty much proved that you've never played Crysis because the first half of the game is basically you sneaking around in the bushes.
Play Crysis near max levels and you will be one of the rare few who can do that. :) As great feeling if you can, but personally, I've never met a person who played Crysis on max settings... or near that from what people have been saying. I've played them on like laughable settings, but I've seen footage of it on a good computer, and that game looks great.
Crysis is one of the best games to have ever been released. It makes me laugh when people say "Yeah the graphics are good but you need a $5000 pc to play it, and the gameplay's crap!" First of all, you don't need an amazing pc to play it. My pc is far from top of the line but I can play it with high settings, and even on low to medium settings it still looks better than most of the games out there. Also the gameplay is amazing, stealth is one of the best aspects of it. Going from bush to bush cloaked, then grabbing some guy and throwing him off a cliff then moving to another hiding spot and none of the enemies are any the wiser. Stealth is only one part of it. There are many ways to play the game, because it gives you so much choice, it's a huge playground. And the storyline is pretty good as well.
Smooth 60+ FPS, no-holds barred settings on anything? Direct-feed that into a file and Youtube that thing and give me the link. I'd love to see more of that.
Wow, way to put words in my mouth. I can't remember saying I had everything on it maxed out and was running at 60fps+. I had most of the options on high and had a few options turned down to medium and I wasn't running it on an obscene resolution, my monitor only goes up to 1280 x 1024. And sorry but I have limited HD space, it's only an 80g, so I'm not about to uninstall something to make room and install Crysis so I can take a video for your viewing pleasure. You may have lots of spare time, but I don't I'm afraid.
It was a crap game but pretty to look at. Plus it's pretty much unplayable unless you have a £1500 computer. The gfx are crap unless you do too, so essentially you pay all that money to just look at it.
I have to disagree, I paid £430 on my computer and it can run the game on max settings with 35-40FPS easy. That was the demo aswell, i am buying the full game tonight in which im sure i will get better performance.
This is what you get running a real pc game on 512 mb (system + video) of total ram. Suck this NP and GG! Or not.
Does anyone ever actually PLAY the game? or just take screenshots. How about some real videos for a change instead?
Ever heard of youtube?
When I'm playing Crysis, I can't help but stab my screenshot button. Before I installed Windows 7 a couple weeks ago I had over 1000 high-res Crysis gameplay screenshots in my FRAPS folder. Oh and here's a pretty montage I made to show off the game play and action of Crysis. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
and the first time ive seen more than 3 people on screen
How come you opted to put a random music track in there? I hate it when people do that. Just leave the game's audio in there. Is that so hard?
Nice video, looks nothing like the screen shots which are are always posted. I wanted to see a video of those uber graphics being played at a constant 30FPS @ 720p on a hardware from 2006 under $300. :)
There is no doubt this game looks sick when you have a good enough pc. But has anyone here played it? Is the story any good? Is it a fun game?
It's a great single player game. But as for MP, MW2 pisses all over it.
I would strongly recommend it to any FPS enthusiast, definitely one hell of a game. There's a good reason it averages 91 on metacritic, graphics alone won't get you that far ;)
Crysis is one of my favourite games of the last couple years. The story is good, but a little uninspired, the gunplay is absolutely fantastic and the graphics are still the best even on a two year old game. I recommend playing it even on low settings. When the game first came out I was only able to run it on a mixture of medium and low settings but the game was still awe inspiring.
Crysis still kills anything the ps3 can do and even most gaming pcs "but we'll give it a thumbs down because we doubt its true even though we've never played it before" wwwaAAAAAAHH!!!!! P.S. - MW2 is a reeeeaally bad game <------ (waaaaahh....)
actually one of the rare few game I keep replaying. My rigs almost max it out in 1920*1080 at 25/50 fps (mostly 40), no AA though I don't feel the need, and it's one of the best experience ever. With noHud mod it's a blast. Sure my PC is more expensive than a console, but neverminds, ODST looks like gamecube compared to that. people saying this game is just a tech demo are just wrong (half right actually ^^). This game is FUN, yes you hear me, mix of stealth, brutal action, shooting, epic moment. Just fantastic. just xfire not compatible with 64bits annoy me :D edit : oh, and you can lean =)
...but ODST didn't look too great compared to a lot of games that came out in 2009; if Reach makes up for it, then I will have no problem with Bungie. I think many Halo fans went into that game knowing that it would be a just a little disappointing, to be honest. Reach was really bad for me since I don't play XBL at my house.
To be honest i wasnt really that impressed with the crysis campaign the last parts were pretty much the best but it got a little boring at the start.
I think most people would disagree with you :) The game went a little down hill towards the Halo 2-ish ending. Fighting Koreans and hiding in the forest and grabbing an unsuspecting Korean soldier from the back of his squad, dragging him into the brush and silently beating him to death was a lot more fun than fighting those damned aliens.
still haven't played Crysis cause I refuse to upgrade my computer just to play this game, and i dont want to play it at low settings with choppy framerate...
Same here ;)
i think it would be awesome if this game is one of the new release for the next gen consoles whether it be ps4/xbox720 running at the highest setting of course at 60fps at 1080p.
Release a 5 year old PC game on new console hardware? Meh, stranger things have happned.
"An alien race invades a foreign country and you play as the American (surprise) army in fighting them off. Seriouly there's no plot at all and the lack of set-pieces in crysis is dizzying." The alien race does not invade. They were there the whole time under the mountain until the Koreans dug them up. You play the American soldier sent there to rescue kidnapped scientists who eventually gets drawn into the whole alien thing. I'm beginning to think you've never actually played the game. No setpieces? The setpieces in Crysis dwarf those in Uncharted 2.
And some of you guys are still trying to say UC2 can compare this game. I guess saying Crysis looks better than UC2 is like telling a religious fanatic their god doesn't exist.
Examples of set pieces in Crysis: http://www.youtube.com/watc... There's also the ending, the fight to the mines, the first battle against the big alien fighter. Many of the open ended scenarios are setpieces themselves when you take in their scale. Crysis also had a train scene before Uncharted 2, but the one in Crysis is more impressive considering you can jump off the train and run through the jungle at any time.
man i cant wait for the CryEngine 3 to come to the ps3/360 because i have them both i think games they should use this for is GEAR OF WAR/HALO/MGS/RACING GAMES/FIGHTER GAMES........
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Train sequence in Crysis. Notice how the open looking environments are ACTUALLY open, instead of only APPEARING open in Uncharted 2.
So tired of hearing the fans brag about graphics that people were experiencing back in 2007... and there's still not a game that I've played to date that has topped this. http://www.pcgames.de/scree... http://www.pcgames.de/scree...
"Seriously though this game was poor gameplay-wise. Uncharted 2's gameplay puts crysis to shame." I think this game is really fun. Did you even play it? http://www.youtube.com/watc... This doesn't look fun to you, yet you like Uncharted 2? What's not to like about it?
People saying Crysis single player game is not fun or poor never played it. It's just that obvious
uncharted 2 killzone 2 or metal gear 4 are alot more likely to be movie engines than crysis, crysis and crysis warhead look like games, nothing about them look like, "oh, that cant be real" everything looks like its a game, but ofcourse the nerd pc fans will think crysis and crysis warhead look better than movies
????? Crysis / Crysis Warhead are the ONLY games so far this generation that are the closest thing to looking photo realistic. UNcharted 2 and MGS4 don't even come close. Your post is odd. Graphically Crysis/Warhead blows away ANYTHING console related. It's just truth.
Get out, Barragan. You're not fooling anyone with the alts. And movie engines? Really? You think Hollywood makes CGI movies on GAME ENGINES?
ps3 is the only platform that has anything that looks cgish ingame so no crysis looks best only in the photorealism category, but then you have gt5 who is barragan anyway?
...but from what I'm understanding, WarDevil's RTE1080 engine will be simultaneously used for games as well a movie for the game; if successful, this game engine will in fact be usable for movies. I can't say that I'm impressed with WarDevil (there's nothing to go on for the game) BUT, I must say the prospects for the engine's future is something to keep an eye on, to say the least. This next part is just my opinion, but... As for "photorealistic" no game looks photorealistic if you can tell right off of the bat it's not real. That only means it looks "really well done". This rendering of a woman is photorealistic (upon looking at it after a while, some people will probably notice she still has the dead-eye, though): http://www.blogcdn.com/www.... This woman is also photorealistic (although the top of the chair is lit-up too well for that degree of lighting on the "woman's" face): http://www.geekologie.com/2... Something I can tell is fake at first glance isn't photorealistic, just great CG.
i have uncharted 2 and crysis 1/warehead which one is better in my opininan i would have to say crysis why? well you just have to play crysis and find out for your self!
"ps3 is the only platform that has anything that looks cgish" You do realize that CG in CGI stands for "computer generated", don't you? All games look CGish, because they were all made in computers.
HUGE difference, meaning the ps3 development kit was used to achieve the visuals not the pcs that they "designed" the games on
a videogame when i look at these screens, but i think thats only because i know before hand, but those shots of the jungle looking out to the water and that cave, if someone were telling me they were on vacation and showed me those pics saying thats where they were, id be like "thats gorgeous man, i gotta go there sometime" lol. i think people could be fooled that most of the screens are real.
I think most people who are pc fans dont seem to realise that crysis simply doestn look as good as killzone 2 WHEN RUNNING ON EQUAL GROUND, its obvious that crysis looks better than killzone 2 when your running very high at 1920x1080 hell its going to look better than any game out there (becuase it does) at those resolutions but put it at 1280x720 and then compare it to a console game, otherwise its an automatic fail for consoles. you cant compare 100 dollars to 50 and ask which one is better, they are both money essentially but one is higher than the other. besides after playing kilzone 2 i kinda see where crysis is a little outdated as far how thing destruct. in crysis things like houses made out of those wide metal sheets explode and fall apart but it looks like a bunch of legos falling apart, just big pieces falling to the ground like a game of jenga. But in killzone bricks actually fall apart and explode into dust they don't just fall on the ground and stay there. i dunno about you but i think that if i shot a piece of sheet metal with a rocket launcher that thing would completely fall apart not just go flying somewhere completely intact.
If Killzone 2 was redeveloped for the PC (MY DREAMS COME TRUE) then it would be on equal ground as Crysis and YES KILLZONE 2 on the PC would be the best graphics game ever. Uncharted 2 on the PC might come close to Crysis but Killzone 2 on PC would definitely surpass Crysis. As far as game play Killzone 2 is better than Crysis.
Native resolution that these games were created in by their developers Halo 3 1152 X 640 640p 30 Fps Gears Of War 2 1280 X 720 720p 30 fps Uncharted 2 1280 X 720 720p 30 fps Killzone 2 1280 X 720p 720p 30 fps The cell Broadband Engine reprocesses the resolution to 1920 X 1080 1080i 30fps This is NOT UPSCALING because this is a Feature of the CELL Processor. Most 360 and Ps3 games can be upscaled to 1080i or 1080p but it's not the same as NATIVE meaning what it was created at. When you upscale you barely notice the difference and you take a hit in framereate performance, like blur for example or slowdown, or square blotches. killzone 2 is not upscaled to 1080i because it utilizes the graphics function of the Cell Processor to achieve NATIVE 1080i as programmed by the developers in the original code. Pc games Native resolution is what ever the native resolution of your monitor or big screen T.V is and if your hardware can get you there. Stalker and Crysis the PC graphical heavyweights I can play at 1920 X 1080 NAtive 1080p at 40 to 50fps thanks to my Twin XFX HD 4890's 1080p is TRUE HI DEF and is double the pixel rate of 720p with the right equipment they can reach resolutions of 2560 X 1600 30fps with 2 or 4x Anti Ailising making the gaming experience flawless. Consoles have limitations where as with the PC it's just a matter of what hardware you have.
Ah, I shall whip out my Geforce QDX Delta Infinto-Beta 956 dual SLI combined with 356GB of RAM and Intel Veri-Vedi-Veci processor just so I can play this in medium settings in 720p at 30FPS. -End statement
