A Maximum Review

“Despite a few minor issues, Crysis Remastered continues to prove that it’s nothing short of a technical marvel; as it adds Raytracing to current-gen consoles and pushes PCs to their limit with it’s insane “Can It Run Crysis?” mode. The gameplay remains distinctly unique and delivers a thrilling experience that has yet to be replicated, while featuring satisfying plot twists that make it more than just another military shooter. This is a maximum nostalgic return that brings a breath of fresh air to modern gaming.” -GRUNT 4500. Nanosuit up and read the full review Crysis Remastered at this mysterious island!
