First post and I didn't notice this anywhere. I was able to buy Crysis 1 this morning on the marketplace for 9.99. Unadvertised sale maybe?

Mentioned in the OP of this thread, a good resource for catching all the random XBL sales that take place.

I wouldn't delete this thread to be honest. I went to the OP and couldn't find the offer there. If this wasn't posted I would have missed out on the sale.

No big deal, and it's definitely a good deal. Lot's of people have been waiting for it to hit this price.

FYI - For those not in the know like me, it comes up as $9.99 but you can use your live points by pressing "x" I think. You should have the option below the payment option screen. It took my calling MS to figure this out. I never noticed it before since my purchases always showed up live points.

Crysis is definitely a great game for $10. Amazing how well it runs on the 360. It makes my PC cry and gasp.

Forgive my ignorance but ive never looked into crysis before. Was a hard copy of this one ever released? I dont think so but i want to double check before i pull the trigger on it. I always prefer the hard copy.

This was never released as a retail disc. It came out years after it's pc version only as an xbox game on demand.

You'll feel better when you find out some of us here paid full price (1600 msp) and still haven't played it.

Now for the real question: Is Crysis FUN?
Not asking if it is pretty, but is it fun? a good game or is it just a graphical power-house?
I'm playing Crysis 2 and it is a good looking game but really boring.

most people will agree that Crysis 1 was better than 2.

It's much more open than Crysis 2. That makes it more fun.

Got to play RCR at fantastic fest in Austin it looks amazing! Also picked up a free month of ps+ that was sitting next to the game (tried it out on ps3 and vita). Stoked for a release date!

Still have finger on trigger for crysis...

I saw it in the xbla thread yesterday and bought it, but not everyone checks that thread. I didn't even think of making a new thread. I say keep this thread open because a lot of people have probably been waiting for a deal on this game.

Is there a multiplayer with matchmaking feature as well?

Or is this just for the single-player?

Also- how does it compare to Crysis 2...is it essentially the same look and feel?

Glad to see a lot of people picking this up, I was just browsing through the marketplace when I noticed the price drop. Haven't gotten too far in but I am enjoying it more than C2

I just started playing it but i havent played c2 so i cant compare. Seems like a decent game but you can tell its made for pc. Nearly every button has a second hold longer menu feature. Looks alright, nothing crazy.

Very boring for most of the game. The last quarter or so of the game changes things up a bit and makes it more interesting but all in all it's an extremely boring game.
