Crysis on consoles – it’s comparison time!

Crysis on consoles – it’s comparison time!

We are going to holy war!

Some time ago, KitGuru reported that 2007 PC hit Crysis will be coming out on consoles. The game was released for XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 4, and now we can finally compare the quality of game visuals on these systems against the PC version.

This is a big one. Many gamers felt betrayed when Crytek made a surprise announcement that they will port the flagship PC shooter. Many doubted that it would even be possible. But here is the finished product, and we can finally make some conclusions.

One picture can tell a thousand words:

You can see more comparisons here and here.

If you want to see Hitler’s reaction to Crysis on consoles, go here.

The outcome, you could have guessed. The XBox 360 version does look good. But it’s just a shadow of the former Crysis glory. It is still very impressive, but the tangible realism of the game is gone. The PlayStation 3 version of the game uses CryEngine 3, so here, the visuals look even less like the original.

It’s my personal observation that with Crysis 2, the console and PC versions look much more similar. I attribute it to the fact that the latest game was developed for PC, XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 at the same time, rather than ported from one platform to the others.

We have to say that underneath the graphics, gameplay mostly remains the same. You will still have tons of fun ambushing Koreans or taking out aliens with a tank. Dynamic day and night changes, open landscape and countless ways to approach combat are still a part of the game. So if you haven’t tried Crysis and own a console, download a copy. You won’t regret it.

It seems that at the end of the day, everyone got what they wanted. Crytek made some money, console owners got a great (relatively) new game to play, and PC has retained its honour as the overpriced, overcomplicated platform for beautiful visuals.

Long live PC gaming!

    Lets not beat around the bush here…The Console version visuals suck balls compared to the Pc. But thats purely because consoles suck balls.

    PC vs console, ofc PC comes on top, BUT imo this is the best looking console, open world, first person shooter game ever. Is there a better looking one on the consoles? Cause i feel like they pushed the hardware to the max and there is just no more room for something better unless you come up with a more efficient engine that allows you to squeeze a lil bit more eye candy.
