Download of the Week: They said it couldn't be done but Crysis is finally running on consoles

GamesRadar - They said it couldn't be done - albeit bloody years ago when it first came out on PC - but the original Crysis is finally available to play on consoles. And in downloadable form of all things.

The gorgeous FPS used to make even the most powerful of PC's sweat but thanks to a reworking under the CryEngine 3, Crytek have managed the seemingly impossible. And for bargain price you're getting a shooter that still holds up today. (Crysis, PS3, Xbox 360)

The only people who said it couldn't be done are the pc elitists. Of course it can be done. Not to the standard that a pc can do it of course but it still looks pretty nice.

There's the E word again.

Thats funny because the first people that said it couldn't be done were Crytek themselves. Thats the only reason they didn't release it for consoles in the first place right when it came out (and they were very wrong back then).

Don't go around blaming "pc elitists" for something Crytek told the world when the game first came out.

Like I said... pc elitists. And at the time they were.

Well I wouldn't say that they were pc elitists at the time, but they just didnt take the time to actually try the game on consoles.

They basically did the same thing with the first Farcry game.

I would. They were always talking about how consoles hold the pc back. Which is ridiculous imo.

Of course they could get it running but its not the same Crysis

I said in my early comments on this site 925 days ago=> Crysis will come...Crysis is possible on the consoles. #7 923d ago by pepbizmo | View comment Crysis can run on consoles, They've already shown Crysis running in the CryEngine3 footage what the hell is this guy talking about? #8 925 days ago PLZ bring the original Crysis to the console not a Based on Crysis version...the game is epic in every way and experience worth playing and the gameplay rules/the story is great i love it...at this moment there is no game like it..and the 360 controller and Crysis are a match made in heaven. Same goes for Crysis Warhead! The Original game is perfect for console play, i hope that they will release Crysis for the consoles #38 925d ago by pepbizmo | View comment
