Here's Crysis, Lookin' Mighty Fine On Xbox 360

Today, Crytek's landmark 2007 PC game Crysis was re-released as a downloadable game for both Xbox 360 and PS3. I've already had a chance to play the game and really liked it, in particular its improved controls, strong visuals, and directly-translated open gameplay. It's a strong port of a good game.


Now I've got my own copy, I thought I'd put together a video of some highlights from the first half-hour to give a sense of what the game is all about.


The Crysis re-release is single-player only, but that's okay—it has a chunky campaign that features a lot of variety both in terms of locations and enemies, and it does a great job of imparting the thrill of the hunt. Playing it again, I realized that as much as I enjoyed Crysis 2, I miss the larger, more open battlefields of the first game.

Crysis can be downloaded on either console for $19.99, and if you've got the scratch to spare or are looking for a less expensive, more tropical counterpoint to the just-released Rage, I recommend giving it a go.

Is it worth installing Windows to play the original Crysis on a 2010 MBP (the original higher end core i7 model) or should I be lazy and get it for PS3?

I mean to boot camp someday anyways.

And please refrain from PC vs Mac trolling in the answer.
