Hey what do you guy think of the upcoming Crysis game for the PC. I think it looks great and puts all other consol Next-gen games to shame. Im going to need to buy another kick-ass computer just to play it.

Looks great. Hope they do something good with the game play tho. SP FPSs are getting pretty stale for me

The graphics look good, but the gameplay looks way too similar to Far Cry, even if they developed that game. The power suit should get a remake, it looks weird, in my oppinion. Still, who can't say no to re-enacting the Predator scene where gunfire can turn a jungle into a meadow, then I'm in.

The power suit looks awesome, I like the idea (and system behind) being able to select, on the fly, specific attributes to boost and the weapon customisation system.

As long as the aliens are less shit than Trigens, than they're on to a winner.

The power suits abilities seem like improved versions of Deus Ex's augmentations, which definately isn't a bad thing (and yes, I have referred to deus ex a bit too much on these forums:) .)

The only thing I'm worried about is the system requirements:( . It may be a year before my dad gets vista, and another 5 years before I can run the game on high settings.

AW theres aliens? Faaaaaack. I thought they were really pushing the sci-fi with those annoying apes, now aliens....

I remember the first thing I said when I played farcry "If only those bushes moved when you went past them". Wooopie!

That looked fancy. 'Course, it mostly just looked fancy.

Aliens (http://www.tothegame.com/sshotfeat.asp?screen=8586&pic=1) in Crysis (I'll avoid making a crisis based pun there)

Well, they look fancy enough. They'll probably be sucky to fight, but, eh, who cares about that?

I just get the feeling that playing this game will be like watching the last sequence of Children of Men, and that's going to be doubleplusfun. Watching an aircraft carrier get torn up ought to be good too.

Damn next-gen games.

They're meant to be a bit more humanoid-esque in how they fight (in the majority, some, like the flying ones obviously won't be) compared to the trigens in Far Cry, so hopefully it won't be quite as annoying when they turn up as it was when Far Cry went to shit with the tri gens.

Zabiela

Doesnt matter how fancy they look , in my opinion aliens just dont belong in the farcry universe. Also i've only played the first farcry, and I thought the trigens were stretching it. I like the feeling of fighting mercenaries on a tropical island, the sci-fi elements just detract from the immersion.

I made the mistake of playing far cry on the highest difficulty, so it literally took an entire p90 clip to take down one of the smaller monkey trigens, and the big boys (or whatever they were called) took a ridiculous amount of shotgun shots to the head, from what I can remember it seemed like 30. I had to stop in the end on that temple level, there was just too many trigens and too little ammo.

Yeah, and as soon as a pixel of your player was in the fov of the mercenaries, your stealth bar zooms immediately into the red.

Crysis isn't in the Far Cry universe :p

I quite like the idea of them and at least they have other sci-fi elements going along with it (such as your uber suit of doom).

Crysis seems pretty cool though.

Is far cry any good?

crans
15th January 2007, 00:26
Yeah it's quite good, the vehicles are fun. Maps are ok. To me FarCry isn't mind blowing but it's cool.

which fool said it looked "too much like farcry" ? That can be no bad thing! 'cept the trigens of course... Other than that, i think of it as a farcry two - a farcry sequel, with the shit bits extracted and aliens and ice added! :D

And that's what was awesome about FarCry: Instincts.

By the time a pixel showed up, you were in a Merc's face and ripping out his eyes.:D

FarCry is awesome, you can sneek up on a merc(or rush him from a distance at like 50mph), then when your close enough you can claw him to death and launch him 20ft in the air, literally

You should look further and see just how many of those points came from Far Cry on the 360 (some, but I just didn't like it enough to play it through).

Apparently, the Wii port was an absolute disgrace. The screenshots alone were enough to convince me of that the first time I got wind of it, though. I know hi def graphics aren't the Wii's "thing", but honestly? I've seen better looking games on the Cube. Or the N64. Just because the horsepower isn't there isn't an excuse to have graphics that bad, and CERTAINLY not in a first person shooter...

Ging

That was one of the major let downs for the 360 far cry, all they'd done was pulled all the assets from the original xbox version and thrown them into a world with slightly nicer water...

IE, it looked like something that got squeezed out a monkeys arse.

QReaper

To which I have to say "Big deal.".

I mean, yeah, sometimes I wondered why the hell it looked like it did, but it's still a good game.

Ging

To which I say, the PC version, without the feral shite, was better (and prettier)... By a factor of oooh, about a million! :D

I couldn't argue with you there, as I've never played the PC version (aside from the demo, which was okay). But still, I really enjoyed the whole jungle stalker thing.
