GameJudgment analyzes Crysis on Console and asks the big question: Is Crysis on Console comparable to the mighty gaming PC?
Pretty cool Crytek got it on console. Even cooler it actually performs so well. I'm stoked.
Yeah they did, not technically on par with the PC version but nice features from CryEngine 3 in there making it almost as aesthetically pleasing. Oh and more improtant than any of that^^, it's actually a chance to play the original and IMO, the much better game.
@ Fishy Fingers I completely agree with you that Crysis is better than Crysis 2. Been loving it on my PS3! Crytek did an incredible job.
@ Controversy & Fishy fingers You guys make excellent points. And even though the article does a great job discussing both versions, I still have to go with PC. I want Mods.
PC is better. Multiplayer, better visuals, better controls. It's amazing what was accomplished in the console ports, but the PC is and always will be the definitive Crysis experience.
True that PC is the definitive experience for Crysis but I remember my bud spending a small fortune a couple years ago to get his pc to run this at max, so this is a big deal now that console gamers are getting 1 of the best PC games running on OLD CONSOLE HARDWARE that looks very close to pc version and runs well too, you have to admit thats one helluva accomplishment. As a guy who prefers console gaming vs pc this is just a great bonus to all the bounty that consoles already have to offer, I wonder what he'll think of this news.
@Jokesonyou For those that prefer console but still have a gaming PC, you are absolutely right; there is no other option but console. For those that are platform agnostic, I do recommend the PC version. None of this detracts in any way, however, from the fact that Crysis is a great game and that Crytek has done an amazing job on all platforms with it.
Jimineyscrickets - As someone that only rarely dabbles in PC gaming, mods don't mean much to me. But I see why they would to somebody like you, so i don't blame you for leaning to the PC version. As for me, I'm getting it tonight on my Ps3. My bro has a 360 so I'm texting the recommendation to him now as well.
I definitely dont think it looks better. but it looks like crysis. which is enough for most console owners. in case you havent heard they dont care about graphics anymore just gameplay which is good because if they did they would be sad
No where near the PC version, but they did a damn good job with the console port. In fact this necroing of a dead game is 10x better than what iD is doing with their turd Tech 5 megalowrestexture engine.
It depends on what kind of PC you're playing on; therefore, it's relative.
Agreed, I loved it on PC, I remember playing it with a terrible frame rate but I really wanted to see it at max settings, it's great that they had the idea of getting this game onto the consoles.
Hopefully Crytek's excellent port will shut up the whole PC vs. Console debate to at least a small degree. Yes, PC's definitely win in the tech category. But great gaming is possible on any platform and, with the right peeps behind the programming wheel, even older tech can work wonders.
With the optimized textures and shaders--for lower end machines.
Agreed. It actually runs well. I like the fact that they decided to implement certain nano suit features right into the gameplay elements as well. They for example took 2 of the most important powers (Cloaking and Max armor) and made them easily accessible. I hate the fact sprinting automatically activates maximum speed. There's no "normal" sprint like on the PC version where you don't use the nano suit's maximum speed. After the energy depletes, then the normal sprint kicks in. Had a couple of glitches where I shoot enemies and they fall down, but not dead. Other than that, the game performs pretty good.
I've always wanted to try Crysis but never had the high end gaming PC to handle it.
i need a GOOD comparison before i choose which console to get this on. I need to play something while i wait for Id to fix the texture loading issues in RAGE, and they better fix it.
I hope that's not keeping you from playing it.
well if im going to buy it i want the best version no?
Texture pop on the PS3 version of Rage was theh reason I've returned it. I emailed Bethesda asking about a patch for PS3 to fix the texture pop, but they said currently their are focused on fixing the PC issues. No patch = returned. The constant issues were giving me motion sickness. Headaches and nausea are reason to not play a game.
I was referring to RAGE.
I just bought this for £2.49 off Steam, pretty sweet deal.
I thought it was £9.99 on Steam.
That's the maximum edition
It is better on PC. Better controls Mods They also had to cut some stuff out of the console version, like tress and stuff. (read it in a article)
Yea the game looks great on both systems, but with 4 years of improving visual mods that make both framerate and graphics better on pc, you just can't beat it. (Although I do hear they improved the controls greatly on consoles which is awesome, because they can be sort of clunky at times on pc.)
I downloaded it from xbox live last night. It really is much better than Crysis 2.
Bigger and better than crysis 2 and smarter AI
Real smart AI : http://www.youtube.com/watc... But i agree its better even though i did enjoy number 2.
who cares not like it was rebuilt from the ground up on ps3 and 360
Looks better on consoles to me, but to each their own. I do think PC fanboys need a new tech demo to show off their PC's though. Maybe Witcher 2 or Battlefield 3?
The tech demo after Crysis for the PC was Metro 2033.
Indeed a maxed out 2033 was what finally overtook crysis for me. Same thing with witcher 2. crysis has been surpassed for awhile now and I'm just exuding to see just how much is missing from bf3
It looks good but not as good as the PC version. But that is to be expected due to the age of consoles. Hopefully Crytek does a good job with the PS3. Because in the last game they did a pretty poor job when compared to the 360 one. XperiaRay
its about on par with the pc version on low-medium at 1024x600 which would run on a 2 year old budget laptop! The pc version of crysis 1 in dx10 at 1920x1080p still visually crushes every single game on console wholeheartedly!
wrong. the console versions look nice but not as good as the pc version running medium with little AA, AF @1080p
its more like crysis on high/ medium on 720p. well at least the 360 version from wat ive played. and just to let u know i am a pc gamer also. and have completed the pc version maxed out on 1920 by 1080 pc specs phenom II 965 3.4 ghz 5850 overclocked (830/1200) 4 gb ddr3 dominator ram 2TB hard drive
no one even gonna mention the 0xAA? it looks like a 5 year old has cut out the objects with blunt scissors the textures are medium to low at best but on the other hand its a fine try not too bad for consoles I just hate it that stupid articles try to compare it with the PC version. Are cyrtek retarded? "Crytek has already gone on record to say that this console version is better than the famously power-hungry PC version. Talking about overall visual quality rather than technical prowess." http://www.nowgamer.com/sit... are they even looking at the same game? visual quality my ass seen less jaggies on a wii game.
I own it on a high-end gaming PC. I played a bit of it on console last night at my brothers. Ya, the AA is a bit of an issue, but everything else about it looks pretty damn good considering the hardware. I think they did a great job.
I played it on the PC, and now on my 360... it plays very well and looks very nice. You can still shoot down the palm trees, shoot the birds out of the sky, throw chickens and get eaten by the great white sharks.
is it me or does it fun at 20fps and constantly dips? Also the gfx arent that great at all
CHEAPER not BETTER , now we need CRYSIS WARHEAD ASAP
It's amazing what they have done, but I still prefer the PC version, looks like its on medium settings,. I am just glad the console guys are not ripping into it anymore like in the past.
Bought the pc version after steam sale and so much better from the console
"Console or PC: Is Crysis Really Better on PS3 and 360?" Answer: No.
I've downloded it on ps3 and on xb360 and xb version looks and plays better.
I own the PC and Xbox version and while the new lighting is great the pop-in and framerate on xbox is awful. Yes Crysis is on consoles and thats a great achievement, does it look better than the PC version NO.
If you even need to think about consoles looking anywhere close to the PC quality, you need to rethink your understanding of technology. PC looks and plays much MUCH better, Consoles still getting the short stick when it comes to PC -> Console games.
This game could run on Nintendo 64 if Crytek wanted it to. Don't you remember the jungle level in Goldeneye? Anyways, here is the latest and greatest video showing the differences between console and PC's Very High and low settings.
