Zero Punctuation review: Crysis

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

It’s that time of the week again where our favorite reviewer rips into some poor developer’s sleepless nights with laced compliments and downright vitriol. However in this week’s review of Crysis, our beloved Yahtzee seems to bestow some degree of praise upon the game. Come again?
