How are these game in any way terrible? Gotta hear this.

Well worth it for Crysis 2 alone, nevermind Warhead and the original also.

Great deal.
#7
I just want the first one but is it worth getting warhead instead of the original?
#8
Great price.

Warhead is a separate campaign from the first, the story runs parallel but from a different perspective. So you'll be wanting both really.

Me too, I've spent hours in these games (plus there's stacks of great mods/maps too).

Will it run Crysis :p
#14
Kinda gutted I already had these (on discs no less!). Steam sale is great though.

Anyone recommend any decent mods for Crysis/Crysis 2 (with links)?
#15
HOT!!!

Personally, I already had Crysis 1/Wars/Warhead on Steam and Crysis 2 on DVD but bought Crysis 2 on Steam separately for £7.47 which is a great* price.

(* Though still not as great as the £2.10 PCDVD misprice that Tescos did last year http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/crysis-2-pc-for-2-10-tesco-instore-mis-price-course-954856 - now I'm going to ebay it)

They suffer from generic shooter syndrome although, i wouldn't call them terrible myself, just bland.
#17
Voted hot for the price.
C1 and Warhead are excellent SP games, and Crysis Wars (MP component of warhead) is still one of my favourite MP experiences.

Fantastic games IMHO and a bargain at twice the price!
#18
I really enjoyed Crysis 1 up until the Alien part. Never played Warhead, how does it fare?

Runs parallel to the story of 1
so has about the same ratio of NKA to Alien enemies.
If you didn't like 1, you won't like Warhead
#20
how big are these downloads thou ?

I was the same, just felt like a regular boring run n gun shooter once the aliens had appeared. Plus I got pretty motion sick at the floating around bit lol
#22
Run round and shoot men. Yes, very good game.

I'm betting the only game he plays is World of Warcraft, he has a penchant for cheesy poofs and grinding XP til 5am. His only friends are other WoW players, he thinks Star Wars is a true story, the last time he went for a walk was the year before they invented Runescape, he owns a Segway but lacks the courage to use it in public. hence his opinions count for nothing, they are very good games imo, not AMAZING but very playable and fun.

There were big problems getting the first Crysis to run on windows 7 64 bit. Can I assume that this doesn't happen with this Steam version? Thanks

is it the case that the first actually has better textures than the 2nd?

As a non-WOW playing, relatively active, social gamer who doesn't own a segway and prefers LOTR over Star Wars, I found Crysis incredibly boring to play. Graphically its stunning in everyway, but rolling a bland game in glitter doesn't make it any better. Crysis seems to be the marmite of the PC shooters so I suppose its down to wether you think this price is worth a gamble. Just be aware it brings nothing new to the FPS table.

Prefer Crysis series over the Call of Duty series.

expiring, thanks for the reports guys

All good games and yes, they do require a beast of a PC to run at top resolutions on maximum settings. If your PC can handle it then great, but even at lower settings these games look sweet. Not going to say too much about what I run them on as in the past people have said 'I doubt that, blah, blah, blah...' but it you notch the settings down you should see 30+ fps on most modern rigs to lead to an enjoyable game. More is better (to a point) but I've played all 3 on a Dell XPS lappy with an i3 and enjoyed it as much as any Call of Duty campaign. A different style of play, but very satisfying in it's own right, but you may have to think once in a while...

Yeah i remember at the time there were a plethora of games with wide open environments, proper physics with fully destructable environments, multiple routes/ways to solve missions, a nanosuit that introduced a remarkable amount of strategy to a normally linear type of game, air/sea/land vehicles and an extensive modding community extending the game way beyond its normal life. So, yes, aside from those things nothing revolutionary. Whilst i agree games are subjective crysis was a landmark game in the pc fps genre and one that i cant say even crytek have managed to better. Boring? If anything it was far too ambitious on so many levels and suffered in some ways because of it. No, if fair critism was warranted it was for not being good on then-gen hardware, poor sli scaling and the last part of the game (the alien bit) not being as much fun as waxing poor korean soldiers.
I still remember the first time i stealthed up to a guard, grabbed him by the throat and jumped 20 feet into the air and powerslammed him through the roof of a shack. Boring indeed ;). I also like lotr.

On paper all those things sound a gamers dream, but when I finally played it after years of hype and incredible looking screenshots I couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of 'meh'. It should have been great, but I agree it was over ambitious, and maybe thats why it tried to pile in so many elements it just didn't stick together. The destructable enviroments had odd exceptions and you reguarly come accross indestructable wooden fences, small huts or just sticks in the ground, the multiple routes consisted of letting the player decide whereabouts on the map everyones going to shout "HE'S OVER HERE!", and the nanosuit ran out of power far too quickly and left you stranded in the middle of a gunfight slowly waddling for cover like a fat kid who's spotted a bar of chocolate on the ground. But like I said its the marmite shooter, a lot of people I know either love it or hate it both for valid reasons. I never explored the moddding community though so I'll take your word for that, I tried the Stalker mod but its still in very early Beta so it didn't work too well.

Sounds like you just failed to play it differently from a run and gun shooter. There was far more emphasis on stealth and taking your time and if that's not your bag fair enough. It's universally well reviewed and loved by a lot of people so 'on paper' or not it's still as I said a landmark title. Please point me to an FPS with anywhere near the degree of flexibility then or since because I'm still waiting.
The fact that you don't get why the nanosuit (lack of infinite) power was a principle game mechanic speaks volumes about your play style so obviously this sort of thing isn't for you. It's actually a shame that Crysis 2 would appeal more to run and gun lowfi FPS players more than those who value the more subtle approach - for this reason and also because of the crap hardware in consoles Crytek had to lower the bar so much that the magic had gone in so many ways. Call of Crysis more like and mores the pity because FPS' like Crysis are a rarity. For a tenner for both it's a steal. I might re-download it on steam actually :)

Unfortunately this seems to be the pattern with modern games, everyone wants the CoD fanbase so they make carbon copies of it, because you can't cash in integrity. In fact the only reason theres not been another Timesplitters game is because it "wouldn't make as much money".
Don't get me wrong, I prefer the stealthier approach and I understand why the nanosuit isn't 'infinite power' I never said that was an issue, it was the speed at which it depletes makes switching strategies awkward and clunky. I haven't played any of the subsequent games but I've heard similar complaints about Crysis 2, the DX11 demo was pretty impressive though.
As for alternatives I'd be happy to recommend Deus Ex, the Stalker series or Far Cry.

I read there may be a possibility this flash sale offer my be repeated before the Steam summer sale ends !

Still a little confusion for me on this one as the Steam forum said existing Crysis 2 (steam) owners get a 50% discount, Also
it seems very confusing regarding Crysis 2 Maximum doing a clean install or patch, again (for existing owners)

Any help would be appreciated :)
