* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: If your specs are high enough, ''Crysis'' would actually look more realistic than real life.

There are a ton of little features to the graphics that really show advanced Crysis was compared to most games at the time- things like realtime lighting, lightrays, wind effects on plants and trees, etc. The game still looks impressive to this day, and it's a testament to the expertise of the developers that the game looks better than most games that have come out almost ''10 years later.''

** Crysis 2 is also guilty of this in regards to the first game. Its plot and setting are too far removed from the first game's cliffhanger, and it does practically nothing to fill the narrative gap that results. The comics haphazardly bridge the two, by dropping bridges on most characters in the process. And you'd be hard pressed to find people that read them. Crysis 3 amends this somewhat by having more ties to the first game's while still retaining some threads from two.

* MagnificentBastard / WellIntentionedExtremist: The curmodgeony, mysanthropic Jacob Hargreave, who reaches levels of successful, long-term manipulative deception previously seen only in Kane from ''CommandAndConquer''. For all his faults, it's hard not to agree that in ''most'' cases, his cold ways are the only option. Even Prophet acknowledges this.

* FirstInstallmentWins: You'll find few who are not of the opinion that the original ''Crysis'' is by far the most superior game of the series.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Crytek did not incorporate [[PeterWatts Peter Watts']] novelization of ''Crysis 2'' into the third game. That means all the plot threads left hanging in ''Legion'', such as Jacob Hargreave possibly being much older than 127 years, are not addressed at all. Alcatraz is also dropped entirely, in turn dropping the "nerd being turned into an alien machine while fighting a war that scales up far beyond his comprehension" drama in favor of "Prophet the ScaryBlackMan". To be fair to them, the novel does acknowledge as directly as it can without breaking the fourth wall that it and the games are not exactly 100% compatible, and some events in the book are "inaccurate".

* BreatherLevel: "Core" from the first game is a low intensity drift through the Ceph ship with few enemies, at least until the end.

* DesignatedHero: Prophet in all three games when you add ''Legion'' to the mix. He knew that Nomad's team was going to be killed by the Ceph and stood by and let it happen.

** Also, [[spoiler: Alcatraz in ''Crysis 3''. Intel files indicate his personality matrix was "47% corrupted" and is currently sealed away.]]

** Also, [[spoiler: Alcatraz in ''Crysis 3''. Intel files indicate his personality matrix was "47% corrupted" and but SECOND decided to hold onto them instead of deleting them. It helps that ''Legion'', which is currently sealed away.still [[BroadStrokes canon-ish]], made a point that most of his memories are still intact.]]
