Great Nanosuits, Batman! Crysis Single Player Demo!

Crysis Header

EA Downloader be damned, we’ve got the Crysis Single Player Demo here at FileFront! Rejoice ye PC gamers of excessive graphical horsepower.

Coinciding with perhaps the biggest PC demo release of the year, Nvidia have also released ‘Crysis optimized’ video card drivers. Keep in mind that these drivers are still Beta. Here’s a download link:

Nvidia Forceware 169.01 ‘Beta’ Driver Download

So grab those if you want to ensure the ‘optimal’ Crysis experience on your shiny new Nvidia-based hardware.

If you are curious as to if your PC hardware will hack it, check out the Crysis System Requirements.

I predict Crysis will be the cause of many hardware upgrades this fall/winter.

So without further ado, the demo itself (Sandbox2 Editor included) can be downloaded at the best speeds around by clicking the badge below.

Thanks, I’m downloading now. Only, er 5 hours to go :cry:


On October 26, 2007 at 7:17 pm

I meet the minimum requirements. :sad:

I’ll let you guys know how that adventure goes here in an hour or so :wink:

The download link is giving me a filefront error:

I got that a while ago. Wait 2 mins, then try again. It worked for me, eventually.

I downloaded the game, installed it and the new drivers, and it freezes when the EA Games logo pops up. Wtf?


On October 26, 2007 at 8:07 pm

My machine took a big crap after playing the demo. :mad:
Is it just me or are the games now days just for people willing to shell out a 1000 bucks for something to play games on?

I got the demo at Fileshack, try this link if Filefronts is still not working.

Can you prosecute Crytek for killing your computer?


On October 26, 2007 at 8:19 pm

The file is working it’s just so many of you are trying to get at once. Like Steve said keep trying.


On October 26, 2007 at 8:32 pm

I am nearly done with my download of it [100 mbs per sec connection, :razz: ]. I’ll let you all know how the game plays.


On October 26, 2007 at 9:05 pm

Only 2 hours to go :mrgreen:

But its 3am so I’ll have to wait till tomorrow. I’ll post then with an update on how my rig handles it.

Are we supposed to be able to play after finding the frozen ship? I got there and then most of the screen was blacked out and when I tried to load the game from that checkpoint it just quits back to the main menu.

I haven’t gotten that far. I probably won’t either. Gotta go pick up Guitar Hero III. That’ll probably consume my weekend.

The game runs as promised here. I have a Athlon XP 3200+, 6800 Ultra, 2GB of ram and it runs and looks on par with Far Cry at the semi-low settings. All things considering, I can’t complain. I’m sure this game on high end hardware would make me drool. Perhaps when I get the money, I could be more critical of the graphics.

If you liked Far Cry, then you will like this game. It compromises nothing and adds a nanosuit factor in there which makes it better, imo.

I wish I could say my recent experience with UT3 had been this enjoyable. Blah. Not very low-end friendly at all there.

Just played through a bit of the demo and the graphics are far better then anything i’ve seen. Its nice to see that the game is great fun aswell (not only consisting of good graphics). It’s certainly my (soon to be) favorite pc game to date (the mp demo was great fun as well). Can’t wait for the 16th

The frozen ship is the end of the demo

And the SandBox2 editor is as much fun as the demo, spawning weapons and tanks and just blowing up

With a 7900, a 2.8 GHz Penitum 4 D, and 3 GBs of DDR2 RAM, I can run this beast on medium with beatiful graphics and amazing physics.

Make SURE you have physics on at least medium, otherwise buildings will NOT be destructible at ALL.

“Are we supposed to be able to play after finding the frozen ship?”

I have no idea. I played until I got killed which was after taking out the radar jammer and the 5 guys up the beach. A jeep appeared and I ran out of bullets lol

I’ve got a Pentium 4 @ 4.2ghz, 2gb RAM & a X1900XTX card. I ran the system checker which switched all my settings to low which I assume is to try and scare you into buying a new card (they are sponsered by Nvidia after all) but I changed them all to medium and it ran absolutely fine with no slowdown at all.

Overall I’m not that impressed. I hate the suit power selection. I dont know if its just me but 75% of the time I click the button the selection wheel doesnt appear. I’m also disappointed with the enemy AI. You put a bullet in them from long range they just get up, run around for a few seconds then go back to exactly the same spot where you shot them so you can shoot them again. I literally did this 5 times with one guy, shooting him from up a hill with my pistol.

The combination of annoying suit and crappy AI means I wont be buying the one game I was really looking forward to this year. Off the strength of this I would give 10/10 for graphics but 6/10 for gameplay giving a total of 8/10.

2 other things that annoyed me. Why the hell do the Koreans speak Korean when you overhear them but English when you shoot them and why is my team mate running around with the torch on his gun switched on while on a covert night operation? lol

I have a video of the multiplayer demo, on my youtube page, the link is my name..

you need some pretty good specs to run this game.


On October 27, 2007 at 3:56 pm

I downloaded the beta drivers from nVidia, and now it seems the game works farely well given my low specs. :smile:

I’ve got an AMD Sempron2800+@2.0ghz, 1.24gb RAM, EVGA nVida6800 w/ 128mb ram.
I’m sure it would look and run even better with more ram and new video card.
But still the game looks great, and I like the gameplay, I’ll be picking this up when it’s released. I too experienced the Korean and English glitch Norbit spoke of. It didn’t bug me all that much.
Norbit: Yes the frozen ship is the end.

If you turn the postprocessing down to high or medium it plays much faster.


On October 29, 2007 at 10:04 am

I have an -

AMD 4600 D.C./2gigs DDR2/BFG (Overclocked)Nvidia 8600GT SLi video card.

Do you think I can run this on optimal settings?


On November 1, 2007 at 12:35 pm

run this game in very high 2x settings and my resolution is 1024×768..My spec: Core 2 duo E6850,4gb ddr2 corsair twinx,8800gtx GDDR3 768mo

Just finished Crysis SP demo on my dinosaur rig (athlon 3000 2gb ram nvidia7600GS)on the lowest settings and felt distinctly underwhelmed with disappointment. On medium settings it was like jerk’o'vision at 3 seconds per frame LOL. On low settings it was a visual travesty. I’ve played FarCry on this rig with settings maxed out and found sheer a gaming paradise in the lush breathing, dripping, living jungle. It’s a damn conspiracy between Nvidia and Crytek to force gamers to buy new hardware. Bastards.
