CryEngine 3, the sexy engine from the people who brought you Crysis is an incredibly versatile and powerful bit of software. It powered – of course – Crysis 2 and the console versions of Crysis and has also been used for all sorts of training software by governments.It’s free  for software developers to download and play with.

His strange misspellings, frame-rate and the horrible water aside, it’s…really really impressive. I keep expecting him to run in to Leo drawing Kate like one of his French girls. I can’t vouch for the authenticity of the re-creation (having never set foot on the ship) but it looks pretty damned real to me.
