Trivia

1001 Video Games

The PC version of Crysis appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

GameTrailers

The review team at GameTrailers.com removed Crysis from their best graphics award of ''GameTrailers Game of the Year Awards 2007''. They claimed they spent a week upgrading their rig and still couldn't get Crysis to run properly.

References

Many fans discussed the aliens in the Paradise Lost level being a very similar to the squids seen in the cult-movie The Matrix. The game developers have never taken an official stand on it.

In the very last level of the game, Prophet says: "They're coming through the fucking walls!", which is a rephrasing of the famous quote "They're coming outta the goddamn walls" from the cult-movie Aliens by James Cameron.

Parody

Crysis was parodied in an episode of "Die Redaktion" (The Editorial Team), a monthly comedy video produced by the German gaming magazine GameStar. It was published on the DVD of issue 02/2008.
