Crysis vs Far Cry – What the Hell happened?

It’s easy to forget that just over ten years ago, with Crysis and Far Cry 2 having just been announced, the current status quo would not have been the one most people predicted.


I remember the first time playing Far Cry on my friends dads bad ass Alienware PC, it was amazing and jaw dropping, especially since I was used to Halo CE lol. Then came Crysis, which was another jaw dropping game (even to this day) and he could run it maxed out on his newer rig. I enjoyed Crysis 1 and 2 a lot, both were very different but i thought 2 was a solid game even if more linear, the story was more engaging imo.

Far Cry 3 is in my top 5 favorite games along with Skyrim, The Witcher 3, Zelda Ocarina of Time and Battlefield Bad Company 2. FC4 was pretty much a more fleshed out (Game mechanics wise) version of 3 while not being as memorable. Primal I thought was going to be garbage so I skipped it until 2 months ago when it was free. It is actually pretty good but no where near what FC3 delivered and slightly worse than 4. FC5 so far is AMAZING and I love the scenery change to rural America and all the subtle detail like the way the rivers flow and natuarlly carve out bancks due to bends and elevation, the grass density is drastically improved and micro foliage like hair moss makes everything look more realistic and the Fresh water spring pumping out of the earth with the natural blue hue is pleasing to see. Enjoying it so far!

Primal is my favorite in the series. I just started playing 5. I'm enjoying it so far. It might be my new favorite.

Crytek always sucked at storytelling that's what happened

4 wasn’t so bad

Pagan Min was pretty entertaining

Skuletor66d ago

Yeah, 4 was good, was hard choosing which Golden Dawn member to side with, when they were both pieces of sh!t.
I've beaten all the main entries except 2 and 6, ended up uninstalling 6 to download something else instead.

I'd love a far cry pack with the original PC game (not the half assed port on ps360) instincts, predator even a port of far cry 2 to modern consoles back when these games had their own identity and weren't far cry 3 cut and pastel

Demetrius66d ago

Still one of my most favorite franchises along with assassins creed

Same here, I don't know why these games get so much hate. I've thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them, with only a couple of exceptions. I wish they'd hurry up and announce Far Cry 7. The only thing I'm concerned about is the rumoured time limit.

No one cares. The whole can it run Crysis is old, dead and stupid. It's also irrelevant, considering only less than one percent of pc owners, own a high-end PC. Second, I believe Crysis wasn't even optimized properly.

TheColbertinator407d ago

Crysis blew my mind back then and still kinda does.

bunt-custardly407d ago

Let's hope the modders can get the other Crysis games working in VR as they use the same Cryengine.

When you're free on every single service it's eventually going to happen.

Part of PS plus at the moment

ChasterMies417d ago

Far Cry 5 is “free” if you pay for PS+ Extra.

Going to have to try and get back into Far Cry. The formula for Far Cry may be fun, but it gets repetitive very fast.
