CRYSIS

My boss comes to me and says, hey check out Crysis for Xbox 360. Well did we not do a write up on the spectacular and at the time PC only game back in 2008 or so? Yes, in fact we did. So it was with a little trepidation that I went into play and review mode. After all I loved and still do love the original game Crysis. Would the game suffer being put into a console version? Was it not said back then that the Xbox 360 and PS3 lacked the graphical power to merit it being made for consoles?

Well cheese and crackers people here we are now, and what do I have downloaded onto my Xbox 360 hard drive? Crysis, of course, and I can tell you that other than a few tweaks here and there to run on consoles and their controller configurations, Crysis has not lost any of its gaming punch.

Many times I hate coming back to much older games because they do not seem to measure up to the original experience at all when compared to newer games advancements in technology. Crysis maintains that feeling of when I first played it and adds some things here and there graphically that make it work on consoles and still looks spectacular, even with some minor graphical jaggies in vegetation and environments. Some graphical pop ins from draw distance do happen.

If you have played the PC version on a race horse of a PC, you will of course notice that this latest version does not have the sharpness of detail. The game still looks darn good even in this incarnation.

If you have held out experiencing the outright fun and tactical gaming goodness of this title, there is no reason for you to not check it out now that it is downloadable for your console. This first jaunt is still just as engagingly fun. Players still have to think in a tactical sense while managing the special exo-skeleton called a Nanosuit.

With abilities like enhanced armor, and speed and cloaking, each of which drains energy from the suit… the power does replenish, it is still a tactical juggle and a blast to jump back and forth between the suites abilities and give yourself the edge in combat.

Some sounds seem a little more subdued than I recall from the PC version but everything else plays just as smooth, including using the suits different abilities, a very well done port over.

While it is a hefty download size, it is well worth the gaming experience that started it all for this franchise, which if the developers have their way there will be a Crysis 3 coming.

As it stands Crysis for Xbox 360 download is still one of the must have games around.
