Review: The Climb

Crytek is a weird company. It hit it off fairly well with the original Far Cry and Crysis, and then pumped out a pair of uninspired shooters in the form of the Crysis sequels, which were carried by the beautiful CryEngine and its benchmark ...   read

Crytek releases The Climb for Oculus Rift

Even with full safety gear, reassuring floor mats, and those dorky little shoes, rock climbing indoors is something I find to be both scary and exhilarating. I can't even entertain the idea of free climbing out in nature, but virtually? M...   read

First hands-on with Crytek's newest game The Climb

Is free solo climbing cool? I'm sure there's been some virality in its danger in the YouTube era, but we've had, what, Cliffhanger, which was more about guns and biceps than cliff hanging, and then the arbitrary opening Mission Impossible I...   read

Crytek's VR adventure Back to Dinosaur Island free on Steam

When was the last time a video game made you cry?

I was thinking about crying recently (that is, about the physical act of crying, not planning on having a cry) and about how I'm a big baby whom cries a bunch with respect to creative media, or when an animal dies, or even in baseball, cont...   read

Crytek is developing VR game Robinson: The Journey

Whenever a new Crytek game is announced, the comments go to the meme of "will it run on my machine?" For Robinson: The Journey, the answer to that question is likely "no," unless you are running a virtual reality headset. To be fair, detail...   read

This trailer for Crytek's Arena of Fate is painful
