November 16th, 2007. Crytek releases the first in what would become a series of games called Crysis. Featuring soldiers, who using advanced armour and weapons, act to defend our planet against both human and alien threats with speed, strength and stealth. With customizable weapons and large open world environments allowing the player to dictate how they not only approach but also execute their missions. While it received two sequels, the original Crysis was received favourably by gamers and technological enthusiasts alike. The reason for the warm reception was not only the gameplay but also the graphics the game brought, allowing advanced graphics on an open world map, an experience people can bring back to their PC’s thanks to a selection of mods.

Unreal shows us that water in games doesn’t have to just be blue, with immersive detail meaning you could stare at the sea coming back and forth and enjoy the peaceful scenes rather than the warfare that is going on behind you.

Mods can bring games back to live, and graphical updates don’t hurt when dealing with games that prided themselves so much on their graphic at their release. Might be time to reinstall Crysis and have a go at reliving some memories.

    Bet it still runs like crap though.

      Only if you are trying to run it on max settings on a calculator. It ran ok on medium settings on a not great computer in 2007. People that complained were generally trying to run max settings on hardware that couldn’t keep up.
      It still stands as a great game today (the 1st 2/3rds anyway), better than most of the tripe that comes out anyway.

        It was sarcasm. “can it run crysis though” being a popular fucking meme on the internet…… Sorry if that did not come across.
