Four Years Later, Crysis Comes to Console

Illustration for article titled Four Years Later, Crysis Comes to Console

Yes, but can your console run Crysis?

There's been talk of this happening for years (no surprise, given the fact the game is four years old!), but it's finally happening: PC benchmark Crysis is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

It'll be out next month (talk about short notice!), and has a few new features courtesy of developers Crytek's advances over the past four years, including new lighting and new effects.

The clip below is showing the 360 version, and for the 360 version, it looks pretty damn good. Not top of the range PC good, but then, an Xbox 360 isn't a top of the range PC.

From a gameplay perspective, is this game any good at all?

I mean, I know it's not a bad game by any means, but there are TONS of shooters on consoles already. Does this differentiate itself somehow gameplay and mechanic wise?

Because everytime the topic of Crysis comes out, all the talk is about how great it looks and how it will bring one's PC to its knees, which is all well and good, but I'd really like to know if there's anything more under the surface.
