A couple of hours ago we showed you the first screenshots and the first trailer for Crysis Remastered, which did not look particularly promising. As a result, there are already several comparisons between the remaster and the original game circulating on the internet. These should give you an idea of the graphical changes between one version and the other, which don’t seem to reflect much of an improvement.
Comparisons come from the users’ handc0Zm1c ” and “Last_colossi”By Resetera. Both compared the area of the beach, in which fewer palm trees can be seen in a specific place. Also, the lighting doesn’t look as natural as in the original Crysis version. The mountain seen in the background is also less detailed, and with fewer trees. Here we leave you the comparisons, the photos on the left are of the remaster and those on the right are those of the original:
Crytek claimed to have improved the game’s textures, but based on these comparisons, the difference will be minimal at best. As if that were not enough, the old HD texture packs for the original Crysis seem to be better than what Crytek will offer.
In short, this remastering looks quite questionable. Still, and to be fair, we will have to wait for the final launch to reach a conclusion. We will keep you informed.
