Feature: Crysis Remastered, reviewed

Sure, Crysis Remastered is nice, but have you ever played the original Crysis?

Crysis was always about more than its graphics. Crysis was and is a first-person stealth playground, with destructible buildings, clever enemies, and a set of flexible superpowers with which to make one collide with the other. Crysis Remastered is that game again, with new graphical bells and whistles you probably can't use, and a substantially higher price than the original game costs now.

Here’s how to find Crysis Remastered’s benchmark

I'm still in the process of putting Crysis Remastered through its paces on PC, but if you want to see for yourself if your PC can indeed run Crytek's revamped FPS classic, then you'll be pleased to know the game has its own dedicated benchmarking tool. You won't find it in the game itself, sadly, as it's tucked away in the game's system files. Here's…

The remaster includes visual updates like 8k resolution textures and ray-traced reflections for those of you willing to put your systems through their paces. Not to worry, ye old Crysis joke will live on for several more years if Crytek have…

Feature: Really, it's fine

Crysis Remastered’s lead dev talks ray tracing, and why it’s OK if you can’t play ‘Can It Run Crysis?’ mode

Famed for its steep requirements and melting PCs the world over, the original Crysis was arguably one of the most important PC games of its day when it first came out in 2007. Not only did it push current PCs to their limits, but it also became a touchstone for the avid benchmarkers in the years that followed. Whenever you built a new PC, the…

Crytek are booting up something Crysis related

After a long sleep, Crysis appears to be waking up. Crytek have been busy in the meantime with the likes of Hunt: Showdown while Crysis took something of a cold-storage nap. The  super serious super soldier FPS series added Crysis 3 to the stables back in 2013. Seven years later, the official Crysis Twitter account is broadcasting signs of life.

Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The best FPS games on PC

The best shooters endure. While other genres warp beyond recognition, there is something solid about the first-person shooter that makes it as dependable as a nice big AK-47. Maybe it’s the gung-ho simplicity - look down a barrel and pull the trigger. It's as fun to fire a double-barrelled shotgun from an early 90s FPS as the slick shotties of today. For that reason, this…

Maximum Sadness: Crysis multiplayer is facing the axe

"Will it run Crysis?" was an oft-expressed anxiety of mid-noughties PC gaming, but here in the chaotic end-times of 2018 we're faced with a new one: "Crysis can't run Crysis."Come October, there'll be no more multiplayer nanosuit shenanigans: Crytek are shutting the online component of Crysis down, apparently because the playerbase is just too dang small to make life support worthwhile. Singleplayer isn't going anywhere,…

Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

Crytek’s VR Game The Climb review

Three fallacies I'm occasionally guilty of believing:1) The Oculus Rift does not involve any of the physicality of the HTC Vive 2) VR gaming is riding a cart to minigame hell 3) There's a ceiling on how good VR games can lookCrytek's beautiful and involving Oculus Rift game The Climb [official site] is a pretty good riposte to all of the above.

Feature: And it's worth celebrating.

Photorealism Is Crucial To Games

Global illumination. Volumetric clouds. Sub-surface scattering.These are words that make me hot.But I know this feeling is forbidden. I should care about games, not the empty pursuit of photorealism. But oh my, it’s so exciting, and not empty. In fact, I think that right now photorealism is becoming crucial to games, and that we should celebrate it.

Have You Played… Crysis

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.When later entries in a series go wrong, the disappointment tends not to blight the original people liked so much. Unfortunately Crysis [official site] couldn't maintain the things people liked about it for even its own running time. Yeah, the aliens were a bit…

Cardboard Children – Boardgame News

Hello youse!We're off the back of a string of five reviews, so it's time for a NEWS UPDATE. Let's call this the NEWS UPDATE OF MAY, or the MAY NEWS UPDATE. Of board games, obviously.

Feature: Maximum Nostalgia

Campaign For A Better Memory Of Crysis 1

There's an open stretch of grass between me and the thin exterior wall of a small island village. The place is crawling with enemy troops, who move along the dirt roads and populate the ramshackle buildings in groups of two or three. Defensive turrets would already be firing at me if I my nanosuit wasn't keeping me invisible, the energy bar barely moving for as…

Crytek On Unpaid Staff: “Some people were very impatient”

In June this year, rumours began to circulate that developer and publisher Crytek were in trouble. Anonymous sources told Kotaku and GameStar [article behind paywall] stories of wages being late, staff going two months without pay, and a lack of communication from the company's management. Crytek initially denied everything. Then last week Crytek made staff redundant at their Austin office, and sold their UK office…

Feature: The Philadelphia Experiment

First Look: Homefront – The Revolution

I'm not sure how a Homefront sequel that I didn't really care about became a Crysis game that I really want to play, but that's what I saw the other day. Homefront: The Revolution is Crysis. Hilariously Crysis. So very very Crysis. And yet it's a Crysis game that Crytek haven't even managed to make, despite having all the component parts. Now they are, and…

A Crying Shame: Crysis, Crysis 2 Multi Shutting Down

GameSpy giveth, and - years later - it shutteth down due to the cruleth realities of modern busineth practices and, in doing so, taketh away. The list of games affected by said untimely (but also kinda timely) demise is long and prone to billowing ominously in the wind, and we still don't know what exactly will happen to a number of those trapped in its…
