Far Cry managed to turn a lot of heads in its 2004 release. Not only was the game the best looking on the market at the time, but it was in many ways a superior FPS to the large majority of the market. When Crytek announced Crysis for the PC people went crazy. Problems arose after numerous production delays, such as people doubting the ultimate quality of Crysis, despite the developer's past treasured endeavors. Now that Crysis has finally released there's nothing to worry about. It's the best looking game on the market by a fair margin and, without a doubt, one of the best shooters no matter the platform or genre.
Gamer 2.0 gives Crysis 9.2/10:
Why you should buy it: Amazing single-player experience that ranks among the top in FPS history.
Why you should rent it: No such luck with PC games.
