Most people who got introduced to the Crysis series was after Crysis 2 was released. Just like Mass Effect 2, so many people played it that many wanted to go back and play the previous version of the game.
Crysis never had a speedrunning community since it’s release in 2007, but it seems like it has now at least been formed. Today Jukspa out of Finland has posted the very first time for speedrunning Crysis with a time of 43 minutes 37 seconds. This time is for beating the game and includes the time with loads.
Only time will tell if this means that more players will be posting their times.
