Hailed for the longest as the greatest looking game ever made, the 2007 shooter from indie studio Crytek made waves as a benchmarking success like no other PC game before it. Continually referred to as a pioneer in video game visual effects, Crysis is no longer a PC exclusive, and Crytek and EA have officially let the game loose on the Xbox 360 and PS3 as a digital download title.

Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek commented in the press release, saying…
“We’re really excited to bring the legendary Crysis to gamers who weren’t able to experience it the first time around,” ... “The CryENGINE 3 has allowed us to remaster the single-player campaign and make significant advancements to the gameplay. We’ve added a new lighting system, some advanced rendering techniques and most importantly, we’ve optimized the Nanosuit controls to utilize its full potential on a gamepad. We really hope that gamers will enjoy playing the game as much as we’ve enjoyed developing it.”

Controversy was a stir when Yerli made claims in an interview [via CVG] that the game performs better on Xbox 360 and PS3 than it does on PC. PC fanboys united by hurling high-end, flaming insults at Crytek for making such a claim, as they typed furiously on their liquid cooled, quad-SLI equipped, hexacore PCs.

However, the comments about performance are not unwarranted. Crysis for the Xbox 360 and PS3 has been highly optimized in the newer CryEngine 3, with advanced features making the game more streamlined than it was when it originally released on PC. Technically, the game will perform better on consoles than a low to mid-ranged PC from 2007, just to be clear.

You can pick up Crysis, digitally, for Xbox 360 for 1600 MS Points or for PS3 for $19.99. To learn more about the game be sure to visit the Official Website.
