Crybusters Mission III: Crystal End Released
Crybusters is one of the… odder contributions to the ranks of Crysis Wars mods. Originally conceived to be “Ghostbusters for Crysis”, the developers were forced to change everything once the actual Ghostbuster’s game was announced. It’s difficult to say what the final product would have looked like had those changes not happened but based on how Crybusters turned out, I’m guessing “silly, shallow, but amusing.”
All the eloquence and clarity of badly translated Japanese games from the 80s and 90s, combined with standard issue FPS gameplay. Even so, for a game made mostly in vanilla, an A for effort, if not for prose writing.
Yeah, we basically laid into it with brutal directness. Even so, we didn’t mean to imply that they should stop doing it – after all, making a mod is hard, hard work, so even an easy-to-mock creation is only easy to mock from the safety of a remote internet connection and the courage to be snarky about something you yourself do not do.
For that reason, we’re glad to see that Crybusters’ developer has gone ahead and dropped a third mission pack for the mod. Because he didn’t have much time (and also, he admits, because Mission 2 didn’t garner a lot of interest), Mission 3 is incomplete. There are only 2 levels, neither playable in the main game but available via the level editor. Even so, something that takes this much time and effort is better than nothing. So, with a heavy-handed dose of ironic detachment, and sincere interest, we invite you to check our out Crybusters Mission III: Crystal End.
