The Game Starts off with an elite group of U.S Special forces(Bleaargh !) Dropped onto an island where a bunch of American archaeologists have been taken hostage by North Korean troops you play as a member of the elite American team (Duh!) .
Your Call-Sign is 'Nomad'.
Boy Do you ever Live up to it
The maps in Crysis are frigging Sprawling I kid you not.This gives the player the option of approaching each objective through different paths leading to different events taking place depending on the way you play the game.
All right so Cosmetically the game is fine it has large and well made maps.The oomph is all there but the really good thing about Crysis is that it has(to a degree) the Substance to match the Style that it so effortlessly oozes.It isn't really a Far Cry to Place a Halo over this games head and Realize that it shall put the F.E.A.R. of god into it's competitors.
Ok bad puns and copied game play notwithstanding Crysis has a lot of things that do work for it namely
1) The feeling that it's actually a Michael Bay movie
2) Theme Music that sounds like it was stolen from a Michael Bay Movie
3) Really cool Alien Villains
4) One of the BEST Climactic Boss fights ever
5) The suit
The Nano Suit is undoubtedly the Feature that takes Crysis and makes it go from good eye Candy to Good eye candy that you can have a lot of fun playing.The Features it presents are not new per se but when you combine Stealth,Speed,Armour and Strength together the result is pretty amazing.It gives you a lot of room to experiment and Change up in the way you approach the Game,and it definitely makes up for the disappointing (but expected) Lack of Innovation in the weapons that it offers you and the fact that for majority of the game you do nothing really Different from a standard FPS.While you can play around and mod your weapons a lot and approach a situation like a barbarian or a thief What Crysis Does Lack In spite of all its aforementioned good Qualities is that little extra in its Game play which would actually make it capable of standing Shoulder to Shoulder with Legends Like the Halo and Half-Life series. But while it Falls short of 'Legendary' Status It Manages to land comfortably in 'Amazingly good' and Like I mentioned It has the best ending I have seen this year on the P.C. and with all these options it will make one hell of a multi player game.Bring It on Baby!
