Why does Crysis run so poorly?
A common criticism of Crysis was that it was poorly optimized for multicore CPUs. While most top-end gaming PCs sported dual core processors prior to the game being launched, AMD released their quad core Phenom X4 range at the same time and Intel did have some quad core CPUs in early 2007.

Is Crysis a hard game?
It’s a one-hit kill weapon with nearly unlimited ammo that you can shoot while camouflaged. This makes the whole game very easy, too easy for a $60 shooter. It doesn’t provide the expected level of challenge, and there’s no compelling story to make my quick progress worthwhile, yet Crysis 3 is still satisfying.
Is Crysis still the best looking game?
The great thing about Crysis is that it has aged very, very well. It still looks great today, and the fact of the matter is FPS games haven’t really evolved much since Crysis back in 2007 and so the game still really plays great today.
Why was Crysis so popular?
The developers of Crysis set out to make the most visually impressive game of the time. They made a game engine that took full advantage of powerful PCs, to the point where it became a benchmark. Eventually it became a meme.
Is Crysis like Far Cry?
Much like Far Cry back in 2004, Crysis pushed the bar high for computer graphics; it did so in a tropical environment too with lots of freedom on how you approach combat situations. You’ll find that even Crysis has aged well despite being a 2007 game while still capturing the essence of the original Far Cry.
