Crysis — Extreme Immersive Mod
Crysis is known for its graphics — and system requirements — but here’s a mod that further increases the realism with some immersion features. A hitbox system segregates body parts and assigns damage effects to each: as you take damage, you’ll have difficulty aiming, the camera will bob more, and your heartbeat will rise.
Which brings us to the heartbeat system. The actions your character takes — or the situations he’s in — will affect your heartbeat. If your heartbeat becomes too elevated for too long, you’ll have a heart attack.
A variety of camera tweaks further draw you into the game:
- Dynamic Depth Of Field
- Dynamic speed effects — a blur filter linked to player speed
- Dynamic camera noise — shaky-cam effect linked speed and the heartbeat system
- Dynamic free aim — adds a movement delay between the weapon and the player camera
Oh, and there’s wall-running. I’m not sure how that factors into the immersion unless you happen to be Neo.
