Crysis Remastered is a remastered version of Crysis, a popular FPS from 2007. The game was developed by the authors of the original, i.e. Crytek studio, and Saber Interactive team, whose portfolio includes, among others, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt for the Nintendo Switch console. Unlike the original, the game contains only a single-player story campaign.

Plot

In 2020, American scientists made a terrifying discovery in the fictional Lingshan Islands in the South China Sea. Contact with them quickly broke out, and the North Korean army entered the area, which, wanting to take complete control of this find, cut the area off from the rest of the world. The main hero of the game is Nomad, a member of the American Special Forces, who was sent there on a rescue mission. Although it is initially the task of the soldiers to investigate the situation in Lingshan and liberate the archaeologists, the venture quickly turns into a real fight for survival. The discovery was a ship of an alien civilisation ready to invade Earth.

Mechanics

In Crysis Remastered we observe the action from the first person perspective (FPP). The game is divided into missions, which take place on separate maps with open structure. During the game, we have full freedom not only to choose the path leading to the goal, but also the ways of performing the tasks that are set before us. Mission objectives can be achieved either by acting quietly or by shooting at anything.

Whichever method you choose, it's facilitated by the futuristic technology of the nanosuit worn by the hero, which allows him to survive in hostile environments (for example, at low temperatures) and can also work in several different modes; we're talking about instant invisibility, acceleration of movements and increased strength and resistance to injury. In addition, there is an extensive arsenal at our base, and each weapon can be adapted to individual preferences by installing a silencer, various optical instruments and accessories like grenade launchers. We explore the islands both on foot and with a variety of vehicles and machines - in addition to off-road vehicles, we can use boats, hovercrafts and helicopters.

Technical aspects

Compared to the original, Crysis Remastered stands out thanks to its significantly improved graphic design. The developers took care, among other things, of refreshing textures and better molecular effects, and implemented a new lighting system, volumetric fog, motion blur effect and software ray tracing. Just like in the original, the environment is susceptible to destruction - we can not only level the building elements with the ground, but also devastate the flora.
