I LOVE FPS games but Crysis is doing nothing for me.
I play and get bored after about 5 minutes.
I'll finish it but at this rate it's going to take awhile.

Let's stick with opinions related to the game people, not to other forum member point's of view, PC Gaming Mod Oakenfold

AHA the thread crapper has appeared!

OP, what difficulty are you playing on? If you like tactical movment (you die almost instantly if running out in front of enemies) play on Delta difficulty. If you like run&gun, try on easy.

I really liked Crysis. It's like Far Cry, but cooler.

I think it is an awesome game. If it wasn't for STALKER, I think it is the best SP FPS of 2007 (although the latter part of the game is not as good as the first half or so).

The nanosuit is awesome. AI is great, weapons are great, levels are great, graphics are great, even on low settings required by my not-so-powerful rig. The gameplay is quite open-ended. I mean, who doesn't like killing enemies by breaking the walls out of the building they are in so the roof collapses on them and wastes them? There is a lot of ways to approach a village or group of enemies. I've reloaded a save just to approach a place in a different style.

Tired of rehashing the same script. Go check the other 10 threads about Crysis sucking for replies.

My opinion is that while Crysis looked good, it lacked gameplay. I tried to play through it on my friends computer and I just got bored and started shooting trees and blowing stuff up. I really liked the demo and I played through it a bajillion times, but the final product was nowhere near as fun as i thought it would be. Hooray for super hype but bad gameplay!!! I bet if EA hadn't touched it, it'd be better.

IMO it was a fun game. I did like Far Cry a bit better if I remember right, but it was very much the same kind of experience for me. Not quite half-life 2 quality (story and gameplay wise), but the graphics are phenomenal and totally spoiled the first hour or so of COD4 for me. Which I played right after I beat Crysis.

Its the same way I play it.

Its a decent game, and fun, but I can't sit and play for more than an hour at a time.

Some day I'll finish, but I mostly just have fun playing around with the environment.

I haven't tried Crysis, but I am playing Bioshock and it seems pretty good.

Because you always hate on crysis and good games in general without giving any valid reasons. Its always an "It sucks, bad game etc etc" response, never "Its simply not my type of game or it sucks because xxx". Most people seem to like crysis, that alone says the game dosent suck.

Crysis is a fantastic game, ive said it before and ill say it again, being he man, the predator and the roadrunner rolled into one guy in a far cry type environment is incredibly fun! I cant wait to play it again in a graphics card of the future.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Crysis is boring. It's just a huge tech demo for the game engine and that's about it. I can only shoot so many Koreans on speed boats before I totally lose interest. Thats my opinion.

The OP didn't have a question, he made a statement about the game.

You are correct sir, it was 5:30am, I plead that I should have been in bed.
:)

Anyhow I'm trying to say let's not turn this into a crapfest. Say what you want about the game, let's just not personally attack people.

I didn't like it either... I got bored after half an hour =\. It was more of a demo to see how purdy my 8800GTX could make things. I've never done well with the hybrid tactical + run and gun shooters. I love Rainbow Six and Unreal (Tournament), but I've never liked them mixed, which is what Crysis feels like.

I understand. The only thing that keeps me in the game is that the graphics are very pretty. And of course the world is quite large which gives that "free" feeling.

Aside from that it's just another repetitive shooter.
If I waited a year it probably wouldn't be worth playing at all.

Heck I don't even want to try any of these new shooters anymore; I've played too many of them.
