Crysis 2 & 3 Remastered finally land on Steam, work great on Steam Deck

By - | Views: 18,907

After being Epic Store exclusive since last year, Crysis 2 & 3 Remastered are finally available on Steam and they run rather nicely on Steam Deck. Now the full trilogy is finally on Steam.

I remember playing through the original Crysis on Windows at release back in 2007, and my PC at the time could only just about run it. To see all three working so well, in their updated form, on a Steam Deck that runs SteamOS (Linux) is quite incredible really. Technology really has moved on and times like this make me really see it. Honestly, I've been massively impressed with how both look and run on the Steam Deck with pretty reasonable settings on both too:

Here's plenty of gameplay of both, with timestamps in the video between the two games so you can get a good look at how they run.

If you're after a good shooter series, overall it's one not to be missed. Although, plenty of people feel that the original Crysis is better than then Remastered version, but 2 and 3 are much improved in the Remastered versions.

Maybe:

Not sure why they used a squared instead of a proper 2, but remasters for sure are a low effort money grab 90% of the time, as the developers don't actually have to develop new maps and story, etc.

But I think what mosy causes it, games changing hands and the new owners want to make money off of their newly acquired companies. Even Blizzard, bought by Microsoft cranked out Diablo Immortal.

Erm, the square is actually a typo from me. On my mobile keyboard if I press 2 too long it comes out as ²

Haha! I can only imagine some situation where one day someone is asking if they should start a war... and auto correct switches the wrong word and generations of people are at conflict...
