If you want to test your system and see just how much power you can put out (within the confines of a CPU limited game engine), then this will still show you what your rig is capable of. If you want a game that is perhaps the closest you can get to the opening fire fight of Predator (with similar otherworldly interference taking over) then this is without doubt a game you should grab! If you've played it before but don't know where you put your CD-ROM or even your DVD copy of the game, this might be a good excuse to shell out for a new digital version. Even if you just want a fun sci-fi action first person shooter with some fun future tech and some lovely visuals… grab a copy!

This year we saw lots of Remastered, Remake and even Reboot productions. Compared to these, we can say that the features and graphics of Crysis Remastered are very satisfactory.

Crysis Remastered lives up to its name by putting even the most modern and performing hardware under pressure. All in all, the graphical makeover is pretty competent, despite some smudges here and there.

Crysis Remastered is not a bad game but getting on a lot in years. If you can live with a generic AI, some technical hiccups and don't think you'll get a graphical surprise as back in the day on PC you'll still get a solid shooter from the oldschool days.

Crysis Remastered is still a solid first-person shooter in 2020 but more could’ve been done to make it better. The open-ended gameplay still makes running around in the Nanosuit a fun power trip but the problems with enemy AI do sour the experience a bit. If you never played Crysis or were a die-hard fan there is fun to be had here but you may want to wait for a sale or for some tuning to be applied.

The 2007 shooter returns loaded with countless visual enhancements, as well as being once again relevant as a benchmark tool. Although with some rough mechanics, the fun is still there, and visiting the Lingshan Islands has never been so vibrant.

Crysis Remastered is more of a capsule from a simpler time of the first-person shooting genre. Playing is undoubtedly fun because of the various things that players can do, with the inclusion of tight gunplay and engaging missions. However, I can’t help but wish for a complete remake because the age of this adventure holds it back from being anything more than a way for us to show our kids the terrible mechanics and AI that we used to put up with.

As a fan of the original Crysis it’s very hard to recommend this remaster. The changes to the art direction on top of the missing content and technical issues make this arguably the worst version of the game to play. Though if you have no other way to experience it, then there is some enjoyment to be had with it.

Honestly, it's difficult to recommend Crysis Remastered. Its premise and design remain impressive to this day, but poor optimisation makes it difficult for players to enjoy the new graphical additions. If you already own a copy of Crysis, you aren't going to miss out on much here.

Crysis Remastered is still the same game you remember, but for the most part, this remaster doesn't sufficiently improve the game's visuals enough. The lighting can look good, but dated textures and gameplay, poor AI, and a number of bugs and glitches hold this remaster back. Crysis Remastered is only worth checking out if you haven't experienced the game yet.

You have to be willing to forgive quite a bit to enjoy Crysis Remastered. Questionable enemy AI is bad enough, but a reduction in content is baffling, and the effort feels incomplete because of it. The extra lighting is nice, but the spotty performance is the real sore spot, as it ensures that a polished and well-performing version of the game is simply unattainable. Unless you have issues trying to run the original on your system or absolutely need controller support, you're probably better off skipping this until a better, proper remaster comes along.

Crysis was a technical marvel thirteen years ago, and in some respects still is. It was the game to beat in terms of graphics and benchmarks for so many years. Crysis Remastered tries to insert itself into that conversation again, but it’s just not there yet. It’s clear that Crytek and Saber Interactive have made some mistakes here, with removing features deemed essential to the experience, cutting a level inexplicably, and making visual changes that affect the mood. It’s not a mediocre remaster, just disappointing and hamstrung in places you wouldn’t expect. Crysis Remastered is still a solid science-fiction shooter sandbox, lacking things that are supposed to be the barometer of PC gaming excellence in favor for what seems to be console compromises.

CRYSIS Remastered is fun to play but its very much dated now and the issues this has only makes it stand out far more which is why it would have been better to have remastered all the series for the same asking price rather than just the first game and showing that this 2007 game, even with 2020 shine applied to it, still feels and plays like a 2007 game.

I’m glad I was able to dive back into a game I genuinely consider to be one of my favourite shooters from back in the day. It feels a little more cliché now than it did back in 2007, but you can still see why Crysis was able to make such a name for itself. With more than serviceable gameplay and narrative, Crysis Remastered is worth a play for those who are yet to check this title out. Although with visuals that feel a little underwhelming, I wonder if those who already own the original would get much out of this remaster.

Crysis Remastered enhances the appearance of a prodigy that in 2007 deterred millions of players around the world with its greed for performance. Those who saw their dreams shattered at the time can now easily run this re-proposal on their computer, which struggles to innovate, leaving ample room for the qualities, but above all the limits, of the original work.

Quote Typically, remasters are also synonymous with the ‘ultimate’ version of a game, and I thought Crysis Remastered was going to be just that — the most complete, best-looking, modernized-as-needed version of the thirteen year old gem. Instead, what is available currently is a half-baked remaster based on the 2011 console version, with no multiplayer, no Warhead expansion, and is an overall mixed-leaning-rough package that should give players pause if they have the option to get the game on PCnot yet available

This is a rather cursory attempt at a remaster. The use of downgraded assets, missing content, no DLC, no multiplayer, and no ability to quick save are all big letdowns. One thing the remaster does carry on though is the legacy of the original game in being able to run in a smooth and consistent manner. Further patches may improve the game but in its current state, the only reaction possible with this release is disappointment.

There just is not very much to praise here. If you enjoyed the colorful sandbox action of the original, you will probably find some enjoyment with Crysis Remastered. If you are like me and thought that the original was lacking, even back in 2007, you will not find any reason to pick this up in the here and now. It is also hard to recommend the game in 2020 when so many other games have come and gone that have better stories, better writing, and better gameplay in every conceivable way. It's a very dated game, but at least the water looks pretty.
