The difference is that Carrion dives into this idea with all its power and weight, finding joy in a theme that might have been maudlin in different hands. I exist only to destroy, and escape, and I have done both. These flashback sections look like, play like, and feel reminiscent of the level design and character animations of old cinematic platformers like 1991’s Another World or the original 1989 Prince of Persia.

This isn’t the first time someone has tried this kind of switch in pop culture, let alone evoked comparisons to Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic. Peter Watts published a short story called “The Things” in 2010 that retells the events of that film, except this time from the point of view of its titular monster. Regarding your last paragraph, I think maybe this is a matter of context or even semantics. I think by stating that “the game has aged surprisingly well” answers your question “is the gameplay good” regarding Crysis. At least this is how I interpret all of this contextually.

Everything about the game reinforces the reality and fleshy horror of my orifice-covered body, from its opening screen to its icon on the Nintendo Switch dashboard. Different threats require different tactics, so I always have to make sure I’m managing my hideous body well, losing and gaining powers in the most strategic way possible. My health is displayed at the top of the screen, and early in the game I can be taken out by just a few shots from my human opposition.

Unarmed humans will either run screaming, falling down helplessly as they attempt to shut doors between themselves and my straining tentacles, or stand trembling in a fit of fear-induced paralysis. The more foolhardy of humans, equipped with more guns than common sense, will do their best to play the hero.

The good news is that healing is as simple as eating more human “victims” who probably should have known how this was all going to end up. However, this emphasis on experiential navigation is held back by the frustration of a lack of any form of minimap in the game to keep track of where you’ve been. This is no big deal in the beginning, sure, when the world’s wide open and everything’s for the taking. But things quickly turn tedious when you’re tracking down the last optional upgrades or even the final section of the game and have nothing to rely on to navigate the sprawling hub world, save your own spotty memory. Carrion’s control scheme is intuitive, relying mostly on the right and left mouse buttons and at most five keys, all labeled by the game’s minimalist heads-up display fuckbook.

There are so many more things we can do this day and age in the Zelda series that we couldn’t do 35 years ago. I had as much entertainment with the original Zelda as I do with the most recent.
