DEV SABER INTERACTIVE, CRYTEK

Crytek used to be one of the most impressive development studios around when it came to tech. ‘Can it run Crysis?’ is a 13-year-old meme at this point, and for good reason. Once upon a time, Crytek’s semi-open world shooter was at the top of the pile, the sort of game you could play for hours just to ogle the scenery.

Time can be cruel, though. Even reprogrammed and dressed up with a fancy ‘Remastered’ moniker, Crysis can’t shake off the harrowing creases of time. Whether it’s in questionable, jingoistic setup of the game’s trigger-happy narrative, the predictable level design, the primitive AI, or the outdated gunplay, Crysis certainly doesn’t look as good once you take those rose-tinted glasses off.
