Crysis Remastered is the classic first-person shooter created by German developer Crytek for which you’ll need to pay. Crysis was initially released in 2007 and has now been remastered to leverage the power of today's much more powerful Windows PCs.
The story hasn't changed. An extraction mission turns into a desperate battle against human and alien enemies. Graphics, audio, and gameplay have all been substantially enhanced. Compared to the original release, the quality increase is remarkable. Other classic shooters worth checking out are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Doctor Helena Rosenthal asks to be evacuated from a remote island that has been invaded by the North Korean army. You and your squad are ordered to bring the doctor back. However, you weren't expecting to be faced with mercenaries that are armed to the teeth and an army of high-tech aliens.
Crytek has used today's advanced technology and processing power to breathe new life into an already enthralling game. Two areas that have been vastly improved are the ballistics and the physics that you experience while playing.
Additionally, the physics applied to the game is outstanding. It all feels highly realistic on the ballistics side of things, including the recoil effect when you fire a weapon. Even peripheral events such as trees being shredded in a hail of bullets are incredibly realistic.
As per the original version, Crysis Remastered is mainly a single-player game. However, the multiplayer option has built-in microphone support for communicating with your team in-game.
The standard single-player gameplay should take you between eight and ten hours to complete.
However, Crysis also packs a delta mode to make it even more challenging. The difficulty is increased by removing some of the automatic assistance that's present in the easier levels. The enemy soldiers speak in Korean, so it's impossible to know what they're planning unless you understand the language.
Additionally, incoming grenades are not highlighted, so you'll have to keep your eyes peeled and quicken your reactions.
In our view, the developer has done an excellent job in updating Crysis to make its action-packed gameplay incredibly immersive. With the photo-realistic graphics, the ramped-up AI, and the physics-based environment, Crysis Remastered has received a new lease of life that's a feast for the senses.
