So, when Crysis was announced, like many others I waited with anticipation wondering how they would improve on Far Cry. The teasers showed superb graphics and novel ideas stemming from the nanosuit, but has it actually surpassed the playability of Far Cry?
Well now I have completed it, I am not so sure. I am not going to spoil the ending but it seems to be following the pattern seen in Half Life 2 Episodes 1, 2 and so on. At the end I felt like saying "Was that it?". For me the whole experience has been more like that of Halo with some innovative tweaks. However, the massive maps, expansive game playing and freedom seen in Far Cry have been either forgotten or lost. I wonder how much Crytek have got lost in the technology rather than the playability - a little like comparing a PS3 and a Wii?
For me STALKER has more to offer in terms of non-linear play (you choose where you go), customisation and variability of weapons and even given its buggy nature, I have to say it is a much more enjoyable game to play. It should be interesting to see what a DX10 version will be like.
Crytek have talked about how there will be more to come. I do hope so and I hope that they also take two steps back, look at what is around today and come up with something that sticks more closely to the Far Cry ethos. I live in hope.

So does with Crysis too !
I must admit that the graphic is truly superb & magnificent despite u will need absolutely min 4G memory to run this game pretty smoothly BUT...
Once again in terms of gameplay, there is nothing new at all
Maybe in MP there is a new mode but still doesn't offer some new point that radically evolve the gameplay of FPS
I very agree that playing STALKER is much more fun too
I completed all missions and secondaries and killed almost every thing to and it still seemed short

Overall, aside from being too short, I think it was a good game, but I'm no hardcore FPS fan myself. Loved the graphics, LOVED the physics, can't wait to see where other games take the tech from here.
