9.0 stars?! The negative voters should be ashamed of themselves!

This game is just too underrated here on IMDb. Even if everything else was not good, the graphic detail is amazing enough for Crysis to get a high rating. Gamespot was right to give this a 9.5 and say its visually stunning and filled with intelligent gameplay and easily one of the greatest shooters ever made.

If you don't see it getting sold much in gaming shops, this is because the game demands a very fast PC and a really good graphic card. Don't buy this game before you get one of the newest PCs and graphic cards, but if you buy special edition, you can watch a DVD about the making of the game and listen to the awesome soundtrack by Inon Zur.

One of the big things about this game is the gameplay. It is heaps of fun and beyond the basic gameplay Call of Duty Modern Warfare features. You can grab a soldier and throw him into a house and make it collapse. Like in Half Life 2, you can even grab any object you want eg, book, teapot, magazine, chair, table, bottle, even a live chicken etc. It makes the action really intense, and the physics to look terrific. Your nano-suit can switch modes to maximum speed, maximum armour, cloaking, and maximum strength (makes you throw soldiers further away and lift larger objects and jump as high as in Halo) I saw what Halo 3 originally got. 9.8? Never! I enjoyed Halo 2, but Halo 3 is no different than the others. Only that graphics are improved. Gameplay is like what it was in 2003. Just a simple shoot 'em up. Crysis is something original. Crysis is twenty times better than Halo. Even Call Of Duty 4 had rather decent game-play, unlike Halo 3. the AI in this game are smart. When you punch them, they react realistically. Their heads don't just get knocked back. You see their reactions from their face, how they open their mouths and close their eyes. When they are alert, they look everywhere around, so if you are playing stealth, you have to be careful.

The story is not bad at all. I am a lot into story lines in games and films. Crysis does not have an original plot. Aliens attack Earth, but the structuring is great and it flows very well, with many twists. US archaeologists have discovered something on an island not far from Korea. Their last transmission indicated that that the Koreans taken control of the island and took them hostage. You are sent by a squad of US Special Forces. You wear nano-suits for the operation. Once you're there, you find out about aliens and eventually fight them (I haven't got up to that part yet.). And the aliens are trying to ice the planet (literally).

The landscape in this game is beautiful. It is much similar to Far Cry. When you swim, you can see fish underwater. This is a free-roam game, so along the way if you explore you may encounter strange secrets as part of secondary objects (if you look hard for Badowsky after going over a waterfall you might get slightly shocked by what you see). The game encourages exploration not only for different enemy tactics but also to see if you can discover a few small secrets.

Overall, it is a great game. Almost perfect as a matter of fact. My only complaint is that enemies absorb a bit too much damage. I'm not saying it is too hard, but they have to be shot at least three times to die using an assault rifle. Buy this game, if you have a good PC. This is one of the coolest games around.
