Back in 2007 Crytek released Crysis and the reaction was great, in fact many critics gave it the ‘game of the year’ accolade, however currently only PC gamers have had the pleasure of playing it – this will soon change as it is coming to both Xbox 360 and PS3.
EA has revealed that the porting process seems to be going very well, so much so that a release date has been set – apparently EA will be launching the game on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network on October 4 – that’s not long at all!
I’m not a PC gamer, therefore I will probably buy this game to see what all the fuss was about, however there is one thing putting me off, its price. It will cost $20 which isn’t too expensive – but there is no multiplayer, so gamers will only have a campaign to play, we think this will put people off.
Gamers are beginning to get spoiled for choice when it comes to shooters, the Battlefield 3 beta kicks off this week (tomorrow for people with early access), also the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive PC beta kicks off in October and the Modern Warfare 3 release is looming – we think a lot of people will opt to save $20 and put it towards one of this year’s bigger titles, will you?
If for some reason you missed out on Crysis when it arrived four years ago we have embedded a trailer which gives you a glimpse of what to expect. IGN scored it 9.4 out of 10, so we think its safe to say that it won’t disappoint.
