Crysis Game Guide

The Future is in your Hands. Detailed walkthrough, hints.

Last update: Sunday, June 5, 2022

This guide to the first part of Crysis contains a set of information and tips necessary to learn the basic gameplay mechanics, as well as an extensive walkthrough, which will allow you to smoothly complete the entire main storyline of the game.

The biggest part of the guide is the detailed walkthrough of the entire singleplayer campaign. The campaign in the game consists of 11 extensive main missions, and each of them has been broken down into smaller factors - the walkthrough contains maps of locations related to mission objectives, as well as detailed descriptions, which explain how to complete said objectives, how to deal with the encountered enemies and aliens or how to avoid unwanted confrontations. The guide also covers the last two boss fights of the main storyline and explains how to win the game and see the ending.

The walkthrough chapters feature a page with Beginner's guide where you can learn about e.g. how to properly use the nanosuit and what are its main modes, as well as which weapons in the game are the best. Other pages contain information about PC system requirements, features of the remaster from 2020, and also about how long it takes to beat the game.

Crysis: Beginner's guide

  1. Use the nanosuit's unique powers. Usually, the camouflage is the most useful of its features, as it makes sneaking a lot easier, but depending on the situation, you can also strengthen the character or speed up your movements.
  2. Remember that the nanosuit's power bar needs to renew. This happens automatically, but only when the suit remains idle for some time. You should take frequent breaks between fights or sneaking sequences.
  3. Save your progress as often as possible. The game allows you to save at any moment, so you don't have to rely solely on checkpoints. You can avoid repeating a large fragment of the game even if you suddenly die.
  4. We recommend that you use the FY71 rifle regularly. This is, in our opinion, the most versatile and useful weapon in the game, which you can additionally equip with e.g. an optical sight and silencer. You can also find a lot of ammo for this gun.
  5. Plan your route on the tactical map. Taking the main path won't always be a good idea, because you can risk more enemy encounters. Use binoculars to spot enemies from greater distances, too.
  6. Be careful during confrontations with Aliens. In most cases, they are more dangerous than the soldiers in the early chapters of the game. Use good equipment and rely on the nanosuit's powers even more frequently.

More hints and tips about e.g. exploring the game world, using various weapons and the available nanosuit powers are on a separate page - Beginner's guide.

The above requirements apply to the original 2007 release of Crysis . On the Hardware requirements page in our guide you will also find complete information about the requirements of the 2020 Crysis Remastered.

Crysis: Game length

Crysis it is not particularly long and completing all 11 single-player missions should take you about 10 hours. It may take longer if you play at a high difficulty level or do some optional exploration of partially open maps, although the game does not feature any typical collectibles and secrets. You can read more about how long it takes to beat Crysis on a separate page - Game length.

Crysis: Trophies and platinum

Trophies exist in both editions of the game, i.e. in the original 2007 version and in the 2020 Crysis Remastered. Both editions feature identical achievements. There are 41 trophies in total - 1 platinum trophy (only available on PlayStation), 3 gold, 10 silver and 27 bronze.

Unlocking 100% of the achievements is not difficult. Platinum forces you to play at the Delta difficulty level (the equivalent of a high difficulty level), but thanks to using nanosuits you can avoid or surprise many enemies by using camouflage. You can get all the trophies within a single playthrough, but you need to be careful, because some trophy requirements are easy to miss.

Crysis has no multiplayer trophies. All available achievements are in the singleplayer mode. You should get the platinum trophy within about 15 hours.
