And it doesn't matter how wide and open your maps are. You still have to go to point B, otherwise you don't advance in the game. The whole open world argument is pointless as you're still going to the same objective. Woohoo you can roam around for an hour like an idiot for an hour before you decide you want to go to your objective. I just don't see an argument where this open world matters.
Now, games with other objectives and an open world such as a lot of the RPG kind of games, now those are open worlds. Go anywhere, do anything, main objectives, side objectives, go back to previous places you visited and so much more. That's open. At least more so than Crysis or pretty much any fps game.
The corridors may be wider, but they're still there. Like I said, doesn't matter how you get there, sneaking, backwards, sniping, spraying, suicide... you're still going to the same place.

Understood, but my argument was against halo, not whether Crysis was a corridor shooter.

Halo has only 1 way of getting from point A to point B. Kill everything, yadadadadada walkaaaaa, Point B.
Crysis has multiple ways of getting from point A to point B. Sneak through bushes, kill everything silently or just walk away, run and gun, etc.

For this reason, Crysis is definitely much better than Halo. Graphics are always a plus too. Helicopter comes in bound and all the foliage moves and other such details makes the game immersive.

Like I said earlier that is not a reason. Being semi-open world does not automatically make you a better game.

Your entitled to your opinion but Halo and Crysis are both great franchises and one is certainly not better then the other.
The sandbox gameplay in Crysis wasn't new when Crysis released anyways.

That is not the point i am arguing...Please reread what I wrote. I am not arguing whether the game is open world or sand box or not. My arguement is there are different METHODS, not pathways, to get from point A and point B.

Right and like I said having 'pathways' does not make you a better game. Having balanced weapons and good enemies to fight does though. Both of which Crysis sorely lacks. Especially in the second half but even in the first the Koreans are bullet sponges.

Analyze their uniform. They are armoured up with kevlar. Maybe if you would aim for the head. and being able to choose what to specifically do to continue through the level DOES in fact make Crysis the better game.
