*** The second game skips straight to [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation "fighting Americans' number one hate figure... other Americans"]] in the form of a private military contractor somewhat lacking in professional ethos (tip: think Blackwater).

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotProgramming: VisualEffectsOfAwesome aside, the first game is horribly optimized. It's to the point where powerful rigs built seven years after it was released have sub-60 in the first game. Luckily, the second game on are much more well-optimized.

*** "Ascension" was also cut out entirely from the PSN and XBLA ports of the game, suggesting either that Crytek couldn't or didn't want to program gamepad controls for the VTOL or, more likely, that [[CanonDiscontinuity they didn't think too highly of it either.]]

** "Core" is also disliked by a fair amount of people in spite of its VisualEffectsOfAwesome, as they feel it's a very boring and confusing level that kills the pacing of the game and drags on for far too long. It's disliked to the point where some wish it was removed from the console versions instead of "Ascension", as at least the latter was straightforward once you got a handle on the controls.

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusProgramming: The series is done in a way so that it gets it's famously-realistic graphical fidelity while keeping the size relatively small. Granted, 10-15 GB isn't exactly puny, but it's a far cry from the upwards of 30-55 GB that other games take up (a lot of it on visuals alone).

* PeripheryDemographic: There are some non-gaming PC enthusiasts that buy these games simply for their value as benchmarking tools.

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

* 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.''

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
