Quote by Roy Taylor, vice president of content for NVIDIA:
“Crysis is without a doubt the world’s most advanced video game and the most important game to come out since Half Life. We applaud our friends at Crytek and EA for their spectacular achievement. There’s never been a game that looked this good and delivered such an immersive gaming experience. The only question is: Are you ready?”
Quote by Cevat Yerli, Crytek CEO:
“Originally we set two extreme and mutually exclusive goals: 1) pushing the boundaries of interactivity and non-linearity, and 2) achieving a realistic experience where you forget you’re playing a game. With the deep technical expertise of NVIDIA’s world-class support team, we achieved these two seemingly impossible goals, defining the heart of Crysis. We developed Crysis on NVIDIA graphics processors and we recommend GeForce 8800 graphics cards for the best experience.
