    Hi,

    I haven't played any games in a while, but the last PC games I liked were Far Cry and Far Cry 2 (I actually like Far Cry 1 a little better).

    I was thinking of getting some new games and saw some nice clips of Crysis 1 and Crysis 2.

    Anybody of you know there?
    Which one is more fun 1 or 2?

    Lars

    I love them both but in very different ways, and 1 is the only one I really got immersed in and spent HOURS and hours with. I'd get 1; it has the sandbox elements and non-linear methods of attack that made the franchise famous, not to mention the gorgeous island :lol:. Plus, you can punch/throw turtles.

    But seriously, if you have to choose, definitely 1 and maybe Warhead on top, a very worthy side-story. If you have any specific questions about any of them you can PM me. :) I spent a whoooole lot of time loving 1 haha, having plans go frantically wrong in Delta mode has provided some of the most fun and engaging moments I've had in games since I was 5-12. :yesway: 2 they changed it/dumbed it down heavily, it's very linear and weapons don't feel/shoot as cool or nice, and the enemies are a little less interesting. The plot is....just....stupid. And schizophrenic haha. I still really liked it in GENERAL though not entirely as a Crysis game, so whichever would be a good choice imo.

    my vote is with one, it was one of a kind. 2 kinda falls into the sequel spiral..

    good call. I would have enjoyed Crysis 2 if they had done a better job with the story and had it back in a tropical setting to really show off CryEngine 3

    I'm not sure if number 2 comes with the editor but that was way too much fun in number one, even on my laptop which can hardly run it on low haha

    That's a hard call.

    You can spend forever stealthing your way around only to have some guy 400 metres away "see" you despite being cloaked and throw a grenade at his feet alerting everyone in a 1 kilometre radius to a presence that shouldn't have been perceptible in the first place, or you can spend forever levelling up your small/big/energy gun attributes only to find out that the FPS mechanics suck regardless.

    It's a catch-22 of cocks.


    :p
