    I have been wondering if the reason could simply be lazyness.

    Perhaps Saber Interactive and Crytek saw that remastering the original PC version would have been far too much work (=rewriting code) and just couldn't be arsed to do it.

    I am guessing the console version was more heavily optimized and already multithreaded perhaps?

    What buggers me the most is lack of physics interaction with foliage and trees in this remaster. That was one of the most impressive aspects of original lumber jack simulator also known as Crysis ... The amount of fun I had cutting all the trees and chopping them bit by bit, seeing how grenades generated shockwaves through bushes made me feel very powerful. Since first mission, after cutting all trees from the map and demolishing all huts bare handed, I knew that dealing with alien threat will be a walk in the park.

    I don't like this remaster and will only buy it on sale to look at RT effects, but will not enjoy playing it as I did back in 2007.

    :)

    Don't know, how credible:


    I dare to say, that the game isn't a big success on PC and consoles. Almost all reviewers ignored the game in their XSX/PS5 reviews.

    So, the last update is huge and I love the classic suit - it`s more Crysis now.
