Top Critic Average
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.
It still is a great shooter, but it undoubtedly shows its age. The graphical improvements are just anecdotic.

A remastered version that improves some graphics aspects of the original and preserves its gameplay, but is plagued by poor optimization and suffer bad framerates even on the most powerful hardware.

Crysis Remastered is a very pretty game when it runs smoothly, which sadly isn't often. That said, it's still a satisfying shooter, even if the AI needed more of an overhaul than the graphics
Crysis Remastered has beautiful lighting and textures, but a stylistic misunderstanding of the original as well as technical issues galore make this remaster feel lacking.
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.
Long heralded as the pinnacle of graphical performance, the Remastering of Crysis leaves much to be desired with a style of combat and fidelity that can't quite match its contemporaries on PlayStation and Xbox
Even if some can still argue about how good the gunplay feels by today's standards, there is one thing we can say for sure - this remaster is unapologetically lazy.

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.
But with all these setbacks, perhaps the age old question of 'Can you run Crysis?' should be refrained. Maybe we should instead be asking, why would you want to?
