Crysis 2 Map Niagara (WIP): Impressive Screenshots Show Photorealistic Waterfalls And Nature

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! (Cryengine 3, Crysis 2, PC, Tag Invalid)

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 .
