I’ll just compare the graphics of two of the current best-looking first-person shooters: Call of Duty 4 and Crysis:

Crytek's Crysis Crysis is 2007’s latest sci-fi first-person shooter developed by Crytek and published by EA, created using the new CryEngine 2. Crysis boasts of it’s state of the art graphics which features dynamic soft shadows, time of day lighting, real time ambient maps, dynamic lightbeams, parallax occlusion mapping, and realistic facial animations. Crysis also includes a system that enables the player to break buildings and vegetation in any way they like. A next-generation physics rendering technology also gives the game a more realistic feel. Apart from the game’s superior graphics, Crysis also offers players smarter and human-like enemy AI which makes the game more challenging.

If you ever want to play this PC game, make sure that your computer has the latest processors, video cards, and at least 2 GB of RAM installed. As one critic has said, “the graphics are disappointing unless your PC isĀ  powered by a North Korean nuclear reactor…” And believe me, you won’t be appreciating the game unless your PC has the highest specs.
