The Climb review photo

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 ...

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...

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

Crytek is developing VR game Robinson: The Journey

Crysis: Analogue Edition photo

Haha sure: Crysis board game on Kickstarter

This trailer for Crytek's Arena of Fate is painful

Ooh boy. This trailer for Crytek's "action-packed online multiplayer game" Arena of Fate sure is something. First impressions are important and that grating narration doesn't leave a good one. Looking on the bright side, I will say I dig t...
