Far from a brainless beauty, Crysis
is a rare gem of a game in which all of its elements gel seamlessly to create an immersive and rewarding experience that has unequivocally raised the bar for all shooters to come.

Game Description: 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. Earth, 2019. A team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea. All contact with the team is lost when the North Korean Government quickly seals off the area. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation. As tension rises between the two nations, a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island. The ship generates an immense force sphere that freezes a vast portion of the island and drastically alters the global weather system. Now the US and North Korea must join forces to battle the alien menace. With hope rapidly fading, you must fight epic battles through tropical jungle, frozen landscapes, and finally into the heart of the alien ship itself for the ultimate Zero G showdown.

I wonder how different this review would have been if I had played Medal of Honor: Vanguard
before trying the demo for Medal of Honor: Airborne
. While it's true that almost no game looks good when placed next to its immediate successor, I feel that the things that Vanguard
gets wrong are so clearly and fundamentally awful that even if I hadn't played the wonderful Airborne
demo I'd still have realized just what an atrocious waste of time Vanguard
Game Description: Medal of Honor: Vanguard lets you return to the days of the Second World War, for more of its pioneering first-person shooter action. Join the ranks of the elite 82nd Airborne Division as Corporal Frank Keegan. You'll guide him through some of WWII's deadliest operations—dropping behind enemy lines, sometimes right on top of entrenched Axis positions. Work with America's first paratroopers on heroic missions, from Operation Husky in Sicily to Operation Varsity inside Nazi Germany. Medal of Honor: Vanguard makes you the driving force in the struggle to liberate Europe.

It's a crutch, when reviewing videogames that belong to a series, to simply compare one game to the next. Reviews of that type are often extremely formulaic—the graphics have improved, and the controls are tighter, but the story isn't as good... etc... It's a boring review to read, kind of a dull one to write.
