Crysis is an FPS game and I’m still begging for a sequel…but much like my love of parachute pants…probably never will.
First off, I’m only discussing the first three games that were available on the Xbox 360. They were legendary…and some of the greatest first person shooters I ever played. The games brought something new to the table, and did I mention they were legendary?
The first game started off on Ling Shan, a chain of tropical islands in the North Pacific and stars a squad of elite US soldiers equipped with high-tech ‘Nanosuits’. Nanosuits are powerful and extremely versatile tactical combat armor. They grant the wearer superhuman abilities, like running super fast, destroying people with a single punch, and one of my favorites, turning invisible with ‘cloaking’. The villains are the North Koreans who have occupied an island and kidnapped a team of archaeologists who made a discovery that will “change the world.”
The game was tough but rewarding. The first Crysis game in the series released on Xbox 360 on October 4, 2011, and came as a downloadable ‘Arcade Game’. I had a 3D TV at the time and it was mind-blowingly awesome, and still one of the best 3D games I’ve ever played. Even though it had released on PC on November 16, 2007, and the graphics were a little weaker, it was still awesome.
The second and third games followed and even though the stories weren’t very in depth, the gameplay is where it excelled. I know it won’t happen, but a new storyline with current graphics on the upcoming Xbox One X and the Playstation 4 Pro would be epic. Crysis has stood the test of time, and if you want to try something new then you definitely have to play this series…but for now you will have to play it on the Xbox 360 because none of them are currently backward-compatible as of yet. And vote yes on bringing back parachute pants…I’ve used this before…but it still fits.
