Um i think the benchmark test was with crysis 3 in 4k, not crysis 1 . …Um i think the benchmark test was with crysis 3 in 4k, not crysis 1 . crysis 3 use to be a heavly load on gpu’s esp in 4k benchmark testif your pc cant run crysis 1 one now you’ve got bigger problems

Crysis 1 was THE benchmark test for years, you must be new to PC gaming.

Heat for the title lol

Do note, if you're planning to run this on Win10 then there's an unofficial patch that you'kk likely need. germancrysis.com/vie…159
It's a MP patch, but it fixes the issue with the game crashes on launch with Win10.

Also don't be disheartened if your PC doesn't run the game all that well. Crysis was optimised for dual core CPUs, and it doesn't care for more than that. It's also very taxing on a single CPU thread due to all the physics based onjects in the levels. So don't worry if the game often dips to 30-40FPS, even with a GTX 1080.

Great game. My computer at the time could most definitely run it.... At about 9fps! Actually got to play this on the PS3 years later and loved it. Second is great too! Hope you enjoy OP! Heat

wow... actually I have a monitor that plays 1440p 60fps and 4k at 30fps!!!

What shall I try first? 1080p ultra! 1440p ultra/high? Can it run 4k medium/high?!

Probably right. I watch a lot of budget build videos on youtube eg randomgamingHD and budgetbuildsofficial and they get random graphics cards from ebay/CEX and see what it can run so might be used to those! I read Crysis 2 is poor but has a story which helps for Crysis 3. But I refuse to play them until played Crysis 1! I got the warhead expansion as well for £3.74

I think 1440p and the highest graphics fidelity as your computer can maintain a steady 60fps will be the way to go. In my opinion frames > resolution when it comes for first person shooters. Especially with keyboard and mouse. 4k/ultra/steady 30fps would be nice if you're using a controller mind.

Enjoy feeling like a rich kid from 2007

Can my 8800 GTX run this?

usually you get beat the nerd with the 'go outside' argument (yeah graphics etc) but what happens when the nerd is so nerdy they didn't gain the skills to get a nerd joke?

$750 and first DX10 gpu!!! how much did you pay for it?!

Great game with excellent soundtrack 👌

Damn it, I need this on Origin to complete the set.
Need Warzone too if that counts.

Got to say I really enjoyed playing through Crysis, even the crazy alien ****... Heat for the nostalgia hit

[Video] ha yes!



not on max, and thats just on 1080p. I had this card when it came out for 500 pounds and it was runing crysis on average settings

When the game came out the fastest GPU in the world was the £500 Geforce 8800 Ultra. Nvidia's current slowest card the GT1030 for £60 is something like twice as fast. Progress!

Go easy mate this is Crysis... start at 1024x768 or your RX470 might blow up.

I had the gtx 9800 oc edition and I still struggled with 1080p @60/30 fps.

After reading this thread I just had to reinstall the game and see what FPS I get on a GTX 1070. 60-80 fps (on the first level) at 1080p with everything on full and 4x AA. Game is still a monster

It's also still really fun, and still looks good..

Lol I didn't really have one, I just remember it being the top graphics card of its day. I probably only remember that because of how big the meme about being able to run this game was.

Thanks so much! Top rate this as I read about this patch on steam reviews.

Also I am gaming on a low clock speed xeon with 4c8t but low clock speed of around 2.6ghz turbo. No problem with modern multi threaded titles but yes might have a problem on older ones. Dolphin emulator prefers my faster i5 pc but that is only small form factor so only have a 750ti in that. Will have to see which combination works best!! Cheers

I can't seem to get it running on Windows 7 via Steam. I Googled it but the solutions given don't seem to work. Reckon that patch might work?

I am sure some of the steam reviews talked about 64 bit problems not windows 10. Presumably you have 64 bit win 7 as today is 2017 not 2007 so maybe patch will work. I haven't tried yet but saw it had some down reviews on steam about needing a patch a lnd an up review saying all is fine with the patch.

Damn, no co-op mode

I miss screen split sharing games

If I remember correctly, Crysis was one of the first big games to come with both 32 and 64bit executables.
Not a particularly relevant fact, just something that springs to mind.

:Edit:

Ah it appears the steam release omitted the 64bit binaries! Naughty naughty!

Still a beautiful & fun game; I never liked the sequels, felt like they were both visually and mechanically dumbed down for the console market.

Crysis: Warhead was a great follow-up. I haven't bothered with Crysis 2 and 3 for the reasons you mention- they sound like a step back.

EDIT: And Warhead's just £1.99 in the sale. store.steampowered.com/app…ad/

I'd go for Crysis first, but definitely recommend Warhead if you want more.

EDIT2: I posted Warhead as a deal, and just found out from HUKD member Parasitemol you can get both games for £3.74

I bought a laptop for £2000 (work paid half of it) just for it to play it at about 30 FPS.

I still have my m11x r1 with core2duo processor and gt435m graphics I think! Not sure it will run it but can find out! Cost me 799 quid in 2010!

I played it at the time because my PC could run it well enough (although I can't remember what settings I had it on) but I replayed it last year at 1440p 60fps and it looked fantastic. Not bad for a 9 (now almost 10) year old game! The gameplay still holds up too.
I played Warhead straight after it - also still great - and now I'm playing Crysis 2 for the first time.

I don’t think my integrated graphics will cope with this game (i7 4700mq).

Crysis was amazing - Crysis 2 wasn't great but not horrible.
3... garbage scripted on rails nonsense.

Can anyone finish Crysis, without getting killed even once... on easy?
My record was getting to the 'escort Prophet and keep him warm bit'...

Did it on Crysis 2 mind.

That makes sense. Nice idea about reading the Steam reviews as well. Will do that myself and see how I go. Thanks!
