Games Like Crysis
Our collection of games like Crysis features other high quality shooters that incorporate open world elements and player powers into their gameplay.

The Crysis franchise has developed into a popular shooter franchise after the original game was launched in 2007. While it was originally a very simple affair focusing on pushing graphics to the limit the later Crysis games (Crysis 2 and Crysis 3) refined the game mechanics to make it much more than a pretty picture of PC gaming.

Throughout the series players will rely on their nanosuit, a powerful piece of military technology that bestows a variety of boosts to players from increased speed, extra armour and much more abilities to help you in combat situations. This is compounded through weapon customisation that allows players to develop their own ideal playing style as you explore the open world environments of the Crysis titles.

These environments range from the likes of a breathtaking island overrun with a strange alien species to the New York setting of later titles under siege by an unknown infection.

The games like Crysis selected for inclusion on this page allow a similar level of character gear customisation from simple powers to weapon options. You’ll also enjoy wide open game worlds where you’ll experience unique and varied environments at your pace and direction.
