One of the most impressive technical achievements on the Switch, which even manages to make improvement to the PC original – although it's rather expensive and the original is beginning to show its age in design terms.

It feels really weird for a new take on Crysis to be releasing so close to the next generation, behind the curve. For those of you who are curious about this series and want to jump in, you could do a whole lot worse on the Nintendo Switch. If you want to play Crysis in the most shiny way possible and own another platform, it's best to wait.

Crysis Remastered is an amazing technical achievement to have it run on the Nintendo Switch, but at what cost? On the surface, in handheld mode, it suffers from framerate issues and stability; in docked mode, things get better and make the gameplay tolerable. Unfortunately, it's the technical issues that hurt the game the most.

You know, it’s bizarre to think, but this is sort of like Crysis’ mid-life crisis.

At the end of the day, Crysis Remastered is an excellent port of a legendary video game. Some of the mechanics feel dated and a little odd sometimes, but the remaster remains true to what the original game was all about, which feels like a more important goal given the game's age and this being far away from a full on remake. Crysis is still visually stunning and sets a standard for what Nintendo Switch games can look like. Crysis Remastered is a must-play for fans of the series, which hasn't seen a new entry in quite some time.

If you’re really looking to enjoy Crysis as it is meant to be played, I’d recommend booting up your PC and playing any of those versions. At least that way you won’t be limited in terms of fidelity, which will also likely improve gameplay fluidity simultaneously.

Thirteen years after it originally set about melting the PC of anyone who dared to try to play it, Crysis arrives on Nintendo Switch in a port that's more impressive than anyone could perhaps have realistically expected. Performance for the most part here is slick and smooth – albeit with a few dips and stutters here and there – while new lighting and global illumination techniques make this a better-looking version than any other console port to date. The addition of gyro controls is just the cherry on top of an excellent job on the part of Saber Interactive. The gameplay here has aged surprisingly well, too, and rampaging across the sandbox of Lingshan taking out human and alien foes with your nano suit technology is just as much fun now as it was way back in 2007.

Crysis Remastered might be great on other platforms but definitely doesn't stand out on Nintendo Switch.
