Generations Lost, Megadrive/Genesis

Crysis is a futuristic first-person shooter developed by German company Crytek and published by Electronic Arts in 2007.

It’s also quite similar to Crytek‘s previous game, Far Cry, in that it is predominantly combat based in a jungle environment, with vehicles like jeeps, trucks, cars, hovercraft and boats that can be commandeered and driven.
