Which looks the best to you?

Crysis is available on pretty much every platform under the sun. Last gen, current gen, you name it! In the video above, see how the Switch version stacks up to all other platforms.

Digital Foundry - Modding/Overclocking Crysis Remastered on Switch

Can the Switch handle it?

Yes, Crysis Remastered is already a rather excellent Switch conversion - but what if we added 75% to CPU clocks and 20% of extra perf to the GPU? And what if we tweaked the game's config files for extra visual features and improved fidelity? Rich takes a look...

Crysis Remastered updated to Version 1.3.0

Crytek hoping to push Crysis Remastered on Switch even further with future patches

Not done tinkering yet

Crysis Remastered cleans up the visuals from the original release on Switch, but it doesn't go as far as the PS4/XB1 versions do. It's no slouch in the visuals department, but some features didn't make the cut. In an interview with NintendoEverything, project lead Steffen Halbig says that future updates could make even more visual improvements to the game.

Yes, I believe it’s fair to say we put everything in that the Switch allows for, and those improvements include features like vegetation bending, depth of field and motion blur, enhanced dynamic lighting, global illumination (SVOGI), gyro aiming, and upgraded textures. But we are known for pushing technology further, and we will try to add more with upcoming patches.

RUMOR: Your Switch username may prevent you from playing Crysis Remastered

What's in a name?

Earlier today, we mentioned that Crysis Remastered has some issues when it comes to inverse options for traditional joystick and gyro controls. Those problems are certainly annoying, but at least they don't cause the game to crash. There's another issue that resulting in just that.

While not officially confirmed yet, it seems your Switch username might end up causing trouble for the game. If you have a username that has a colon in it, Crysis Remastered will wig out when you try to start up a game. You'll go to the usual loading screen, and then software will crash after about 30 seconds. Removing the colon will result in the game loading up no trouble.

Crytek hasn't commented on this matter yet, but if you find yourself unable to load the game, perhaps this name issue is getting in the way.

Crysis Remastered doesn't allow players to differentiate between inverted stick and gyro controls

So close, but so far

It seems that most developers that add in gyro controls on Switch forget one key factor. They don't allow the player to choose between inverted for one and not the other. We saw it with Call of Juarez and Ion Fury recently, and now Crysis Remastered joins the pack.

For those wondering, when you invert the stick controls in Crysis Remastered, this means the gyro controls are inverted as well. You're not able to change each aspect individually, which means that some players will find the gyro controls completely unusable. Unfortunately, the game also doesn't have any gyro sensitivity options, so it's just on or off.

“We are really excited to be bringing Crysis to players on a whole new platform.

“The original Crysis was known for hardware-melting graphics, so bringing Crysis to the Switch has been a fun and challenging project,” said Andrey Jones, COO of Saber Interactive. “Our team also brought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to Nintendo Switch last year, and that experience in combination with the power of the CRYENGINE are what made the whole thing possible.”
