Crysis is probably the most hotly-anticipated first-person shooter of the year. Almost everyone seems to be going bonkers for it, including ourselves...so when it was announced that it would be shown off at i31 (which is less than 45 minutes drive away from our Ascot offices), we just had to go and play it.
To set the stage, the preview level that we got to play was exactly that - a single level, with no story. It was actually an alpha that was heavily patched to beta...having said that, though, it was certainly more playable and stable than what we're used to at this early stage in a game's life. If you'd have played what we did, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was right around the corner from going Gold. (With a bit more meat on its bones, one hopes... --Ed.)
With the huge anticipation surrounding Crysis and the massive expectations everyone is placing on the game, we unfortunately can't help but feel a little deflated after being hands-on for around 60 minutes. Join us as we share our brief experiences of the game from the i31 show floor...
