I'll get some disagrees for this but I didn't like Crisis. Most of the powers were underwhelming for one thing. And if you wanted to play it stealthily with a long-range silencer you were just about guaranteed to not get the upgrade orbs since they disappeared so quickly.

It basically forced you to play the way they wanted you to play.

camel_toad1039d ago (Edited 1039d ago )

I had to look it up but their called "nano catalyst" and they were for suit upgrades/unlocking suit modules.

But if you wanted these very important things you had to run in and grab them because they disappeared quickly.

Vegamyster1039d ago

That was only in Crysis 2 which was a pretty linear game, there was very few long range engagements.

porkChop1039d ago

The nano catalyst was in Crysis 2, not the original game.

camel_toad1039d ago

Ah yeh ok. Honestly they're all kind of a blur. I don't even remember if there was a 3rd one... Now that you have cleared that up for me I know it's part 2 that I didn't like, but I don't remember loving the first one either even though I had a high end pc at the time, of course no one could run it as well as it should have been.

PrinceOfAnger1039d ago

Did you even play the first game ?
you can play crysis like a stealth game and do tactics or an action one
you have options

camel_toad1039d ago (Edited 1039d ago )

Yeh I remember skydiving down onto the beach at night. That and running around holding asian dudes as human shields until they got shot up or I threw or punched them. That's about all I remember. I think I was underwhelmed by the series as a whole tbh.

But yeh I was apparently making my point about Crysis 2 because of the nano catalysts that disappeared, hampering ranged stealth options.

jivah1039d ago

The first 2 were solid to me. The 2 that came after were consolized way too much to be enjoyable imo. 2 and 3. But the first 2 for me were golden and had a pretty good formula which was kind of lost. And by the 4th game was very much "wtf am I even playing." And never even bothered to finish it . I wouldn't mind a complete reimagining of the series though.

I agree with Cameltoad

It's not that good it's got good visuals but that's it music score isn't too good weapons no good and kill physics are laughable. It's a relic of the Past that's made a good Internet meme I was glad I finished it on Origin and even more gladder to uninstall

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.

TheColbertinator439d ago

Crysis blew my mind back then and still kinda does.

bunt-custardly439d ago

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

Bioshock still looks fantastic, one of my all time favorites.

Yui_Suzumiya510d ago

Beyond: Two Souls on PS3 can compete with modern day graphics.

SonyStyled510d ago (Edited 510d ago )

Same as Killzone 2 and 3, uncharted 2 and 3, Infamous 2, Heavy Rain, Resistance 3

jasonismoney510d ago

I wish this was entirely true, but you might want to load up Killzone 2 and Resistance 3 again.

SonyStyled510d ago

@jason I watched some gameplay videos of KZ2 and R3 on my full screen. They are on par or succeed graphically to the first person shooters mentioned in the article that also launched on the seventh generation of consoles. Try the same and see what you think

cthulhucultist510d ago

Killzone 3 was super impressive! I could not believe the graphics back then as I was regularly pausing the game to stand in awe looking at the surroundings! Resistance however did not impress me that much. Heavy rain is also another amazing graphically speaking game. It almost felt next gen

Fist4achin510d ago

I always thought the first 3 Gears of War games looked great and still hold up for today.

SonyStyled510d ago

They did for their day. I recently played gears judgement with on the 360 and the draw distance was so blurry. The characters up close look great though

JEECE510d ago

Far Cry 2 was awesome. In addition to having demonstrably better physics and AI than later games in the series, it had a lot of design decisions that, criticized at the time, have since been praised in games like BOTW and Dark Souls.

iNcRiMiNaTi510d ago

It might not be super amazing by today's standard but I thought Mgs3 looked really good

JEECE510d ago

In terms of art style it still holds up.
