Yes, you read that right - here's a cheeky little news tidbit, Crytek have just announced the original Crysis for XBox 360 and PS3, coming this October. This was the project I was working on at Crytek until I left in late 2010, and the guys have done a pretty sweet job of finishing it off - check out the launch trailer here:

Blimey!

Oddly enough I've just been replaying this to 'punish' my new GPU. Still feels like a lovely graphical benchmark for the system.

Should be interesting to see what this ends up like on the Xbox 360 / PS3 (though you can imagine what most gamers / reviewers are going to say about it as soon as it ships - it'll bring out the PC gaming snobbery in a few folk :)

I wonder if Warhead is included?

Anyway looking pretty good and it's a bit of a surprise that it's coming out so soon. Hopefully the VTOL controls work better in this than they did in the PC original as they flew like bricks.

For those who weren't that impressed with C2, well the original is a far better game, at least it is until the mountain...

As you can imagine I spent quite a lot of time playing around with the original game on PC when working on this and the amount of configurability was really quite remarkable. Fun game too, I found it really improved on replaying as there was such scope for experimentation and improvisation... and for knocking down buildings and forests in entertaining ways, of course.

It doesn't look great, but it's better than I thought it'd look. Damning with faint praise I know :D

For 1200 points it wouldn't be too bad I guess.

Preview from Kotaku and some footage from IGN.

As FF says, 1600 points, and coming on the 4th October (hm, although that might be a US date, shall have to find out).

Very much so.

Replayed it before C2 came out and it still felt up to date.

Very excited about this. Thought the sequel was amazing to look at but rather dull and repetitive to play (I think I just hate fighting fucking aliens - see also Halo's munchkins). Finally got a PC that's good enough to run Stalker, etc - but I'll grab this for the 360... assuming I can squeeze it into what's left of my 120gig hardrive.

You do know there are aliens in Crysis? ;-)

Are bullets their staple diet? Because that's my biggest grief with these things. But I've always wanted to play this - consolification isn't a problem for me.

Is this out tuesday or wednesday next week?

Looking like a good week for releases, at any rate. Doing my best not to pre-order Batman...

If I didn't have this on PC already (and 2 on PS3 which I've not played yet) I'd probably pick it up on the name alone.

Might also mean I could finally finish C1 - could never get past the crash bug at the final boss!

I'm guessing there's no trial for this?

I don't mind bigger games coming on GoD as opposed to XBLA, but it would still be nice to have some sort of demo.

I repurchased Crysis+Warhead on Steam for 6 just because of this.

Have to say I'm pretty impressed and I worked on the damn thing. You'd have to be a pretty rabid fanboy to suggest it looks better than the PC version but it's hard to deny that it's still a very good looking game.

And more importantly, those fantastic, free-roaming level layouts (particularly in the first half of the game) have been retained, making it a joy to explore and experiment with. The first time I played it, I zipped through many of the levels without even realising how much breadth and room for alternate approaches they really provided, so for anyone playing this for the first time, I would definitely say - take your time, look around, and try different things. It's definitely at it's most rewarding when you do.

Shame there's no demo as I'd like to give it a try rather than buy it as I already have the PC version.

I did think it quite funny that this was released on Xbox GoD the same day Rage came out in the US, I know which game looks more impressive! :-)

Tempted by this. 14.99 seems like the 'right' price for it too.

I was waiting for this in the EA sale today. It isn't there, but now I really want it anyway.

FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU.

Is it worth it anyway?

Oh yes.

One of the best things I played all year. Vastly prefered it to the sequel.

I couldn't get through the sequel quickly enough. Most pirated game of 2011, proving once and for all that pirates have no taste :)

(apologies Neko, it all went down when you left Crytek y'see!! :)
