WHAT MEDIA SAY ABOUT CRYENGINE 3

1.   “There’s a very real chance that the age of Unreal Engine 3 is about to be joined, if not threatened, by the age of CryENGINE 3.” EDGE

2.   “CryENGINE 3 is a remarkable thing.” Xbox World 360

3.   “CryENGINE 3 rivals Killzone 2’s scale and Uncharted 2’s rich textures; amplified by the most realistic particle effects we’ve ever seen. The quality of the lightning and shadows, and the scale of Manhattan’s skyscrapers give it an incredibly natural, photorealistic look.” PSM3
