Niagara is a map coming for Crysis 2. The CryEngine 3 mod is not finished yet, but the first facts and - more importantly - screenshots are available. Honestly? You should check them out!
The levels and environments created by modders and mappers for the crysis series have always been incredible. Not just from a technical stand point but the sheer design itself is breath taking. More than just brutal processing power these guys have always delivered environments that are skillfully created to be a visual blast. A genuine example of strong art direction which I personally felt was missing from crysis 2.
Amazing. Why can't the original games look like this?
because it only got the engine+ a good (yet not awesome) gameplay (especially the first game mind you , the second is even less good). I know i'll get disagrees , but there is a big hole in the creativity department there , that's only filled by great modders . No artistic awe and vibe imo , like you play a game such as any bioshock , valve games , or even within "realistic looking" games such as stalker and metro . Wich is partially why i never was a crysis fan . Lot's of horsepower , great tech , but not even as interesting as those games or even Crytek's own Farcry 1 .
