After surprising us in the best possible way with a thoroughly impressive Switch port of 2007’s original Crysis, Saber Interactive return with this remastered version of Crytek’s second Nano-suited super soldier adventure. But can the Switch handle the stress of this big budget sequel? Well, yes it can. In fact this is a supremely impressive port that delivers the full-fat Crysis 2 experience to Nintendo’s console in fine style. Following on from the delightfully chaotic open world sandbox of its predecessor, Crysis 2 sees a shift to a much more traditional FPS blockbuster style, with action set within the rigid confines of a shattered New York City. There’s far less of the wide open spaces of the first game here and a greater focus on narrative and shuttling you through the campaign’s eighteen acts. In all honesty, we’re not sure we were particularly huge fans of this sequel when it first released but revisiting it now it feels as though we were definitely being a tad harsh. Yes, it drops the endlessly entertaining and hugely silly sandbox elements of the first game — the reason for our original chagrin. TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

but what’s here is still hugely entertaining and impressively flexible stuff that delivers lots of explosive set-pieces and more than enough opportunity to sit back, observe your surroundings and switch your tactics to suit your mood. Want to wade straight into battle with your armour activated? Go for it. Prefer to snipe from long-range, flank your enemies or just sneak past the lot of them and head straight to your next objective? For the most part, you’re accommodated. Crysis 2 also noticeably improves the core mechanics of the series’ gameplay. There’s less jank here, your suit abilities feel as though they meld with the emergent nature of the combat in a more satisfying manner, weapons feel meatier and enemy AI — although still fairly dumb when you decide to get right up into their faces — does a much better job of accounting for your attempts at strategic engagement. There are still problems, of course. The visor tagging of individual enemies is pretty useless, tactical opportunities are far too obviously flagged up and enemies see you much too quickly when you decloak.

New powers as you battle for humanity’s survival.

but overall this is a big budget FPS that delivers satisfying spectacle and opportunities to get creative in fairly equal measure. The story may still be absolute tosh, and we will always prefer fighting human foes over their slightly less interesting alien variants, but ten years down the line from its original release, this is still a pretty spectacular shooter that looks and plays fantastically well and manages to beat out plenty of more modern efforts when it comes to giving its players the choice to go mix it up how they want. When considered as part of the Crysis Remastered Trilogy, this sequel may well be the most well-rounded of the lot in terms of its story, setting and campaign duration. Yes, it loses its multiplayer aspects here but there’s still more than enough to dig into in single player over the course of its twelve hour campaign and, when taken as a standalone purchase, Crysis 2 Remastered on Switch remains worthy of an enthusiastic recommendation. This is top-notch FPS action that looks and plays incredibly well in both docked and handheld modes. Switch-owning shooter fans, rejoice! Crysis 3 is interesting in that its 2013 release date saw its CryEngine evolve. Warpips Switch NSP

adopting many of the technologies that would eventually find their way into triple-A titles. Its forward-looking nature, combined with specific elements in its technical make-up essentially mean that upgrades are more limited compared to Crysis 2. In fact, minor tweaks aside, the console builds (all of which have the same features and trades as Crysis 2) come across more as PC ports than actual remasters. They will look great, however, and performance is similarly robust – but again, checkpoint stutter and more of a propensity to crash make the PS4/PS5 builds less solid than Xbox equivalents. However, the PC version of Crysis 3 Remastered does receive a lot more love. What we don’t get is much in the way of remastered art, mind you, while SVOGI is off the table. The most obvious improvement is ray traced reflections, again improving the realism of materials and specular lighting overall. Crysis 3 is filled with a lot of organic surfaces and environments, however, and here, ray tracing helps by eliminating a lot of cubemap glow and light leakage. For water though, ray traced reflections take a back seat in the PC version of Crysis 3 Remastered.

as Crytek has elected to implement full planar reflections for all of the game’s flat water surfaces. This is heavy on performance, but eliminates the inaccuracies of cubemaps and screen-space reflections. Here, we imagine Crytek decided to use planar reflections instead of RT reflections exclusively on water, since their RT reflections tend to be more specific in what geometry actually gets fully reflected. Other purely graphical upgrades are few and far between in Crysis 3 remastered – for example, the grass now has the more accurate vegetation from later CryEngine versions – a small but appreciated upgrade. Bigger upgrades in general come with the game in motion, with DLSS doing a much better anti-aliasing job than the older game. Water physics are no longer locked to 30fps, which always gave them a ‘framey’ look. On top of that, grass animation is also now running at full frame-rate. This is another 30fps effect in the original game that didn’t look great. Optimisations have taken place, however, so while the new Crysis 3 is far more GPU-intensive than the old one, the CPU side of the equation seems lighter – even though the 30fps grass was so processor-intensive on the older iteration of the game.

And ultimately, at the end of a week of analysis work requiring three Digital Foundry team members, the news is good. While not quite as exalted as the original game, Crysis 2 and its sequel did push back boundaries in gaming technology and while graphically demanding at the highest level, the remasters ensure that these titles will continue to scale with the PC hardware of the future. And as for the consoles, what users get are very attractive games with solid performance that serve to showcase that while very different from the first game, there’s still some solid single-player campaign action to enjoy here. Regarding the future of the trilogy, we think that a ‘final flourish’ that Crytek might consider is releasing the sandbox editor for all of the PC remasters, just as it did back in the day for Crysis 1 and its sequel. What we have today is welcome, but making mods a more accessible would be the icing on the cake, opening the door to new Crysis content in the years to come. Set in the (very) near future of 2023, the Nanosuit is handed over to new protagonist Alcatraz to travel through New York and rescue Doctor Nathan Gould; a scientist who has been doing vital research into the extra-terrestrial Ceph.

Use OF Modren Technology.

The Ceph are returning from the first Crysis but instead of North Koreans, this time you will be facing a private army known as CELL, led by Commander Lockhart. Early on, on his way to finding Gould, Alcatraz and the Nanosuit come into contact with Ceph tissues and cause the suit to react in strange ways. Gould suspects the suit is creating antibodies for the Manhattan virus – which killed previous Nanosuit wearer Prophet and many of New York’s inhabitants – and wants to do some further testing with Alcatraz. These first few hours of Crysis 2 feel dragged out as you have to chase down Gould, only for him to have moved on when you get close to him. Seriously, at one point you get near his apartment only for him to tell you he’s just nipped to an old girlfriend’s apartment. Considering New York is basically a warzone, Gould has no issue wandering through it without finding any trouble. You on the other hand, will frequently bump into hostiles. As usual, you have the option of being stealthy or full assault. Or, like me you can start off stealthy and invariably end up in a gunfight after one tiny error. Even with Stealth mode engaged on the Nanosuit.

this doesn’t offer complete camouflage from enemies. Nor should it. Even on lower difficulties, you cannot just waltz through sections untouched. This linear gameplay puts a much larger focus on the story this time around, but it still takes a while to get going. The opening act feels slow and sluggish and isn’t helped by some pretty wooden voice acting. It’s a sign of the times that has only felt worse as time has gone on unfortunately, but stick with it and Crysis 2 offers much more past the opening hours. The Nanosuit itself has been improved from the first game and offers a much more streamlined experience now. Previous modes such as Speed and Strength have been grouped together and now fall under Power mode. Stealth and Armor modes are still present, but so is the energy level that will drain with usage over time. It means you can’t walk round deflecting unlimited bullets or constantly remain invisible; half the battle in Crysis is managing the Nanosuit and never leaving yourself open. Being far more linear than its predecessor, there feels like there are far fewer moments to change up playstyles. The original Crysis allowed many more different ways to attack an objective.

And even through side quests at you – but all that is gone here. There are moments where you Nanosuit will advise you that you have different ways of progressing, but these feel far more forced than if they were in an open-world situation. Following the events of the groundbreaking original Crysis, aliens have returned to a world ravaged by climate disasters. As the invaders lay waste to New York and begin an assault that threatens the total annihilation of humankind, only you have the technology to lead the fightback. Playing as a super-soldier equipped with the upgraded Nanosuit 2.0, you must adapt to the battlefield using its game-changing Stealth, Armor, and Power abilities. Customize your Nanosuit and weapons in real-time and unlock incredible new powers as you battle for humanity’s survival. it would be remiss to talk about Crysis 2 and not discuss the graphics. You’d make a good argument that the trilogy didn’t exactly need a remaster, considering how ground-breaking and legendary the graphics were when these games originally released. This remaster does give it a nip and tuck where it is needed and does a fairly good job at bringing it in line with modern releases. It isn’t quite as striking now as it was when it first released, however. Goat Simulator 3
