The Crysis series known the world over as the games that can melt graphics cards at will is now on Consoles! I played it on the Xbox Series S and set the graphics to performance. After all, is said and done it doesn’t matter for Crysis whether it be the first second, or third game looks fucking brilliant on the big screen with full HDR support. What we have here is a game series that will stutter and freeze at random times but it does have huge explosions and big open areas so it’s kinda guaranteed. It’s a collection that will not be for everyone but it will have a game anyone can play and enjoy as they are so vastly different. The worlds you play in are fantastic in places but ugly in others with janky pixels and textures ruining an otherwise beautiful scene. The gameplay is slow and sluggish in the first game but gets markedly better through the series. despite still boasting a lot of innovations that most modern shooters could benefit from like quick equipping of attachments and the way guns handle, the core gameplay is fun and action-packed, I got a lot of fun from it by playing as stealthy. So overall Crisis Remastered Trilogy is the game pack you need to play/replay as it’s not like you remember, sure it has problems that you wouldn’t expect in this day and age but for the amount of content and awesome action it’s a hard one to not wanna play. Everyone has a favorite but here you get them all.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
