Getting Crysis to run on the Switch is going to be an amazing feat. I mean I know the original wasnt particularly well optimized (I think it was single core only), but still.

@Idol:

Yes, Crysis was single-core only. Which is why it's still tough for some to max-out, as it was never really built for multi-cores.

I am curious on how good (or poorly) this new Crysis Remaster will run, especially on PC.

Gonna be interesting to see how it runs on the Switch too.

In summary, I'm highly conflicted about Crysis Remastered. I find some of the technological additions and asset work to be brilliant - SVOGI and RT reflections in particular look wonderful - but the legacy art issues and brutal CPU limitations are extremely problematic. Just the basic idea that it's essentially impossible to run a remaster of a 2007 game at 60fps on the fastest gaming CPU available, even with key settings at medium, basically means that there's a fundamental issue here that needs addressing - and that the game should not have released in this state.
