ZTGD | Crysis Review

Michael Futter writes: When Crysis 2 came out on the console, I admit that I didn’t rush to pick it up. I’m the kind of person that hates jumping into a series in the middle and felt that I’d be missing something if I didn’t know the back-story. Thankfully, other members of the ZTGD team convinced me otherwise and I didn’t miss out on the game. However, one sentiment I heard (and expressed) multiple times was a desire to play the original Crysis on consoles. In an extremely fortunate turn of events, those of us that prefer a gamepad to a mouse and keyboard (and didn’t have liquid-cooled PCs when the game launched in 2008) can finally play Crytek’s masterpiece.

The story is too old to be commented.

This game could run on Nintendo 64 if Crytek wanted it to. Don't you remember the jungle level in Goldeneye? :p Anyways nearly all of the beginning from this console version with PC Very High and Low footage:

So, just to be clear, your point is that PC games look better than console games? Um. Yes. They do.

That does not negate the enjoyability of this game on consoles or the fact that it does a lot with the hardware resources. It doesn't diminish the design of the game and it certainly doesn't impact the sound design.

Your comment has nothing to do with the review or the game on the console. Yeah, if you have a PC that you use for gaming and you LIKE to game on a PC, the choice is simple. For those of us that prefer our consoles and avoiding driver and hardware issues, we're quite happy to be able to play this the way WE like to enjoy games.

I was just being silly. The joke was making fun of people who said this game could never run on console, I guess it was too clever for people to handle. The comparison video is just for kicks. So relax.


And the naysayers said we would never see this game on consoles...HA!!!!Well done Crytek!I see your engine becoming the industry standard soon thus knocking the unreal engine off it's throne.Can't wait to see what you guys have in store for us.


Great review, and the game does look and sound good on consoles...I just might make the easy decision and pick it up for $20 on PSN, I tried playing this back in 2007 when it first came out, but my PC cried.

Thanks for the compliment. I'm glad you liked the review. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Well deserved, loving it. My graphicscard melted when running Crysis on PC back in the day(no joke, i had to buy a new one). Crytek's remastered Crysis for the consoles is a welcome surprise, Crytek managed to do some miracle work and exceeded all my expectations, it is absolutely fantastic to see it running like this on consoles! Best 20 bucks spend yet.
