Set in 2019, you play as Jake Dunn, a United States Delta Force operator. Dunn and his team are sent in to investigate a mysterious meteorite that has crashed into the Spratly Islands, located in the South China Sea. The United States is not the only government aware of the crash, however, as North Korea is also investigating the crash site. The reason the meteorite is being treated as mysterious is due to the fact that it has barely damaged the area surrounding its impact.

As the story unfolds, players are faced with three very different environments (or "acts"):

* Act 1: The meteor hits the island, causing the North Koreans to take up military presence and investigate the meteor crash. As a Delta Force soldier, you HALO jump onto the island to see what you can find out for the US Government. During this phase of the game, you'll play in a tropical environment complete with beaches, jungles and tropical villages.

* Act 2: The meteor opens up and flash freezes a large part of the island. There is no clear alien threat, however, so both parties continue to fight each other. The player's main objective is now to investigate what's happening on the interior of this frozen sphere. Shortly after, both the North Korean and US governments come to the realization that this meteor is actually an alien craft, and therefore decide to join forces to fight what could become an alien invasion. This phase consists of battling through the frozen jungle as well as on your own aircraft carriers, which are located off the coast. The aliens, not yet revealed in the story, use machines to battle against the North Korean and US militaries, which are slowly closing in on the source of the freezing – an alien ship lodged in the earth's surface. The constantly expanding freezing sphere throws the global weather system off balance and causes natural disasters which include high winds, tornadoes, and earthquakes.

* Act 3: As you enter the alien craft, you find yourself not only weightless, but fighting against the aliens in this gravity-resistant environment. The recoil of weapons combined with the Zero-G environment propels players back while leaving shell casings from weapons floating beside you. The Zero-G portion of the game will only last about 1 hour, however. Crytek has stated the aliens themselves will not be revealed until this part of the game, giving them a certain degree of suspense.

Crysis will be just another FPS...though it may have a good sinlge player story line to play through.

It will be a FPS with nice eye candy...people will pay it like made for a few months and then forget about it and move on to the next FPS that come out. All of them are the same...get some one in your sights and click the mouse.

Don't get me wrong...I love FPS's. but I only "upgrade" my FPS about every year and a half. I basically went from original Unreal tournement to CS, then to Quake4, then to FEAR, and then to BF2142. With Doom 3 in there some where but I never played it multi player. I missed a whole bunch of them but I didn't really miss out on any game play.

I am sure that millions will disagree with me but if you ask me...Crysis is nothing new and will not be the game of the melenium and the game DVD will not float on water.

Meaning supposely uber high end graphics.
not true. a few games have already been made for DX10, starting with Halo 2. Company of Heroes recent patch now offers support with DX10, just to name a couple.

They weren't "made" for DX10. Bioshock and Crysis will be native DX10 games, CoH was just patched to DX10, and I believe Halo is still DX9
