From the makers of Far Cry, Crysis offers FPS fans the best-looking, most highly-evolving gameplay, requiring the player to use adaptive tactics and total customization of weapons and armor to survive in dynamic, hostile environments including Zero-G.

 

Real time editing, bump mapping, dynamic lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features the CryENGINE™ 2 offers. The CryENGINE™ 2 comes complete with all of its internal tools and also includes the CryENGINE™ 2 Sandbox world editing system.

 

ASUS Radeon HD 4870 TOP 512MB Graphics Card

 

Like our other tests, we continue to see the HD 4870 TOP from ASUS get a little bump in performance. Against the older 9800 GTX, the HD 4870 has no trouble competing for the most part. At up to 1920 x 1200, we see the HD 4870 and GTX 280 quite close, but moving to 2560 x 1600 does separate the cards considerably.
