Last week, the Digital Foundry team conducted an unusual experiment and improved the legendary Crysis with ray tracing. The shooter, known for its exceptional graphics and exorbitant appetites for iron, began to play with completely new colors. The visually modernized fighter of 2007 is fully capable of challenging the current AAA titles. What is not a reason to think about the remake?
Of course, the reprints of the classics – especially with free innovations – have an ambiguous reputation. DOOM 3 BFG Edition, Flashback and Painkiller Overdose – vivid examples of the fact that some games better stay in the past. However, sometimes the opposite happens – when a restart on the head exceeds the original in all respects. Like recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Shadow of the Colossus . Who knows, maybe if they approached the creation of the updated Crysis with the same trepidation and diligence, he could repeat the success of the hit of 2007 – or even surpass it?
