I find it astounding how good Crysis 3 still looks for an 8-year-old game released before the last gen consoles. Still looks gorgeous to this day.

This looks like an excellent port and possibly one of the best looking Switch games to date.

Pretty much locked 30 FPS where the 7th gen versions were very often below 25 FPS.

We beat the 2006 consoles! o/

A mobile chipset from 2015 outperforming consoles from 2005/2006, while expected by now, is still commendable. There have been some bad Switch ports of 7th gen titles so it's just nice for Switch owners to know we're not just getting a lazy dump of the 7th gen console code.

Looks better than the PS3, impressive for a "mobile chip" as digital foundry says.

Still, I cant help but feel like why is it being compaired to a 2 gens old console?
Where is the comparison to the PS4/PS5/XB1S/XSX+XSS/PC ?

PS4/PS5/Xbone/XS will get their own faceoff(s) as those will all be similar to each other. Switch is a different beast.

DF says or at least suggests Crytek wanted to show off the Switch version. Therefore this is probably all DF was allowed to compare at the moment.

I'm pretty sure DF did the same thing with Crysis 1. It was a 7th gen vs Switch video first. Also makes sense given all the Switch ports are based on 7th gen consoles.

Crysis 1 came out on Switch first, so at the time DF covered if the 7th gen versions were all they had on hand to compare it to.

And the PS4/Xbox One versions of Crysis 1 Remastered were also based on the PS3/360 version running on Cryengine 3, as work had already been done to make it less dependent on single threaded performance than the Cryengine 2 original from 2007.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
