Crysis 3 Remastered, another little miracle on Switch? Digital Foundry’s analysis

After proposing a movie entirely dedicated to Crysis 2, the tech enthusiasts of Digital Foundry have focused their gaze on the third chapter of the Crytek Sci-Fi shooter series, dedicated in particular to the Switch edition.

After the already excellent work done with the first episode released in a remastered edition last year, it seems that Saber Interactive is ready to give a worthy job also with Crysis 3. Digital Foundry is very satisfied with the results achieved so far, also thanks to the scalability inherent in the original game:

“There are a couple of good reasons why Crysis 3 Remastered works well on Switch, and the first is due to the initial flexibility of the original title. Yes, Crytek’s 2013 game is monstrously demanding at its highest settings, but eliminating the better presets turn out to be much more manageable across a wider range of kits – and let’s not forget that there was a version of the game that worked Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Yes, it didn’t run particularly well, but there was a base and, in effects, the Switch version has been expanded with respect to these versions of the game. ” Richard Leadbetter of DF goes on to point out that the Switch edition is better than the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions in terms of anti-aliasing, level of detail and the addition of global lighting in real time. Crysis 3 Remastered benefits from dynamic resolution techniques on the Nintendo console and manages to peak in docked mode at 900p as a native resolution at 30 frames per second.

In short, for Digital Foundry it is a new small miracle from Saber Interactive, although the port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt remains to date the most noteworthy one produced by the studio.
