Good Game: Crysis (PC)

A Good Game a day for the rest of time perhaps?

Today it’s Crysis a 2007 first-person shooter video game developed by Crytek and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows (PC). It is the first game in the Crysis series. A separate game entitled Crysis Warhead was released on 16th September 2008, and follows similar events as Crysis but from a different narrative perspective. At the time Crysis was released, and years thereafter, it has been praised for its milestones in graphical design (high hardware requirements).

The game is based in a future where a massive ancient alien-constructed structure has been discovered buried inside a mountain in the fictional Lingshan Islands, near the coast of the East Philippines. The single-player campaign has the player assume the role of U.S. Army Delta Force soldier Jake Dunn, referred to in-game by his callsign, Nomad. Nomad is armed with various futuristic weapons and equipment, most notably a “Nanosuit” which was inspired by the real-life military concept of Future Force Warrior. In Crysis, the player fights both North Korean and extraterrestrial enemies in various environments on and around the island.
