If you enjoyed the sequel but missed out on the original, you can soon take a step backwards in time.
Not long ago, we learned that Crysis would hit the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade at some point in October. Now, it has been announced that the first graphic-intensive title will be ready to go in digital form on October 4. It'll cost $19.99 on the PSN and 1600 Microsoft Points on the XBLA.
Boasting a remastered single-player campaign, complete with new lighting effects, stereoscopic 3D, and even optimized controls, developer Crytek has called this re-imagining of their sci-fi FPS the "best version" out there. Some fans will tell you the original is actually better than the sequel; Crysis 2 released earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim. We certainly liked it a lot .
And the first game with revamped visuals for only $20? That ain't bad. Of course, Dark Souls and Rage come out on that same day, but it's autumn now…'tis the season for tough decisions.
