Earth, 2019.
A team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea. All contact with the team is lost when the North Korean Government quickly seals off the area.

The US responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation. As tension rises between the two nations, a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island. The ship generates an immense force sphere that freezes a vast portion of the island and drastically alters the global weather system.

Now the US and North Korea must join forces to battle the alien menace. With hope rapidly fading, you must fight epic battles through tropical jungle, frozen landscapes, and finally into the heart of the alien ship itself for the ultimate Zero G showdown.


  • Adapt to Survive: An epic story thrusts players into an ever-changing environment, forcing them to adapt their tactics and approach to conquer battlefields ranging from newly frozen jungle to zero-gravity alien environments.
  • Suit Up: A high-tech nano-suit allows gamers to augment their abilities in real time on the battlefield. Players can choose to enhance their speed, strength, armor and cloaking abilities to approach situations in creative tactical ways.
  • Customisable Weaponry: A huge arsenal of modular weaponry gives gamers unprecedented control over their play style. Blow the opposition away with experimental weapons like the TAC launcher, discover alien technology and utlise custom ammunition from incendiary-tipped rounds to tactical munitions that can silently put foes to sleep.
  • Veni Vidi Vici: Lifelike enemy AI challenges players to assess a situation and approach it strategically. It isn't about having the fastest trigger finger - players are challenged to be proactive in the fight, not reactive.
  • Zero-G Gameplay: Battle a horrifying alien species in a true Zero-gravity environment, where physics change everything as players must adapt to moving in Zero-G and contending with the recoil from their weapons and more.
  • Next-Gen Graphics: Built from the ground up using Crytek's proprietary CryENGINE 2, Crysis has full DirectX 10 support and scalable options to deliver solid performance on older machines.
  • Open, Physicalised World: Choose your own path through the open world of Crysis, destroying obstacles, driving vehicles from VTOL's to boats and using the environment itself against your enemies.
  • Bring It Online: Full-featured multiplayer for up to 32 players with real-time armor and weapons customisation. For a pure adrenaline fix hit the Instant Action button, or prepare yourself for the all-new multiplayer PowerStruggle mode that combines economy and vehicle warfare, alien technology and ranking, all wrapped in a strategic objective-based experience.

Don't you hate it when you're away from a game for a while, and when you decide to pick it up again, you realize you have no idea how to play?

That's what happened to me after a 5 week hiatus from playing BioShock (on X360). I'm currently at Point Prometheus and I couldn't even remember how to change weapons. Some Splicers started coming after me and I was running around like a chicken without its head, I couldn't shoot properly, my aim was poor, and I was panicked. Turrets had their way with me and I wasted tons of health packs.

So then I loaded up Crysis to give it a whirl. Previously I had played maybe 45minutes before stopping for a week. Same problem.

Disgruntled, I decided to watch X-Files: I Want to Believe. Turns out I was better off staring at the wall. (No wonder I prefer to lurk on and work on Neo :P).
