I'm glad I put down borderlands 2 for a bit and fired up the original crysis , I'm really enjoying it! This is a game I could see myself trying to get all the achievement points for.

I'm also learning that I'm terrible at stealth despite having a futuristic invisibility suit. :)

It's not you, it's the game. And those guards with absolutely amazing sensory perception.

About how long does the campaign last for?

It's a shame that they didn't include the expansion and multiplayer...That's what is preventing me from buying it. I spent the same amount of money on Crysis 2 and haven't played it in a bit..

Awesome timing. Just had received those points I got off Buy.com's Daily Ebay Deal. Been waiting for this game to drop in price.

Just bought it and actually feel like it was worth it. I wish the guns in Crysis 2 felt more like they do in Crysis 1...Only just got into the first few minutes of the game, but I already am pleased with what I'm seeing.

It's nice to have Crysis 1 + Crysis 2...down the line when Crysis 3 has been out for a bit I'll be picking that up as well. A nice new trilogy to get into.

I put some time into my first try at Crysis ever. The world feels very open. quite different from the linear pathways of most FPS/TPS games. and the environmental detail is amazing. it seems most structures are destructible. the vehicles are neat. I kept getting radio chatter to go into the first camp all stealthily. but I stormed in via the humvee and guns ablazing...

Thanks OP! I may have to check this out. I've never really looked anything up about this game (all I knew was that it was a PC exclusive for a while, and that my computer couldn't handle it, haha), but I took a look at a couple videos and it seems like it could be a lot of fun for $10. :D

This is honestly one of the best shooters this gen. It has that same magic that the first Farcry had. Crytek, when at their best, put out an amazing experience. This game is basically the antithesis to the CoD approach to FPS game design. It is simply awesome!

for those of you curious how Crysis translated to the Xbox, I made a 30 minute recording...

it's my first time playing any Crysis game ever...



0:00 credits and intro. 2:30 gameplay start. Youtube transcoding compression is really killing the video. Hopefully after more postprocessing by Google, it'll look better in a few hours as I just uploaded it.

Thanks OP! Bought a Crysis 2 code off eBay about a year ago for 15 bucks. This makes a nice addition for 10 bucks!

For those who have not bought it and can buy it for PC, don't get it for the 360. It is highly glitched. I am a few minutes away from 200 of my last 215 gamerscore and the game has script issues or all I can do is move (not even jump).

I had no problems. Game ran smoothly from start to finish. I just beat it a couple of weeks ago.

Had to restart a checkpoint and a level because the script just did not advance. The worst now is I can only move with the analog stick and nothing else...second time I will have to restart a whole level.

Doesn't seem to be a common problem. Try clearing your cache and make sure you are running it from a hard drive and not a USB stick.

My glitches are good compared to what others have faced. It's just a poor port.

Yeah but other than PC version the only alternative is the PS3 version and I think DF said in a face-off that the XBOX version was better.

I am going to get it being that I've missed sales for the PS3 version waiting for this to hit the 800 pt. mark due to the better 360 reviews.

It definitely has some glitches, but the gameplay improvements that they brought over from Crysis 2 make it superior to the original pc version, in my opinion at least.

went back to Digital Foundry's Crysis article after Ironside reminded me...

I didn't realize some of the changes made to the game because I never played the PC version. It seems that in some ways, the graphics are better on the 360 than on the PC (running at the same resolution) like the lighting and better quality textures.

I just beat this morning with out any problems and got 830/1000 GS.

Definitely worth the $10 / 800 MSP.
