Crytek's latest mobile effort, The Collectables [Free] which was unveiled on the sly back at WWDC last year before being officially announced this past December, has exited its soft-launch period and is now widely available. Here's the brief trailer that was released during the announcement in December, so you can get a quick look at what The Collectables is like.

Being from Crytek, The Collectables definitely looks impressive in the graphics department, but it's a free to play game and published by Mobage, so that will likely turn off a lot of the target hardcore demographic it appears to be aimed at. It soft-launched about a month ago, and so far early impressions in our forums are that the freemium model diminishes what is otherwise a pretty cool game. It's not clear if anything has been tweaked since the soft launch, but hey, it's free to download and try so if the trailer looks cool to you then check out The Collectables for yourself.

    Pro-Tip: It's Freemium trash! That's Crytek for you- pretty games with no substance.

      Well it just gets monotonous cause you end up playing the same mission 5 times over and over again to get all the cards/gold, gets kind of boring. I dunno, I can see how some can like this game, but this definitely isn't for me. I dunno why I decided to try it and waste my time, I generally avoid freemium junk games.

    Bleah freemium..skip it like a plague
    Play a game for the graphic is like watch a p**n video for the story

  • Jake7905

    I just want to know how much they paid Sean Penn to grow a fu manchu and pose for that picture.

    Who cares free gaming looks pretty darn cool to me, i personally have played alot of freemium and never spent a penny, can take a while sometimes, but did not mind as i play alot of other games in the meantime so kind of spreads it out for me, looks too cool to not give it a go? Im heading in...

    Freemium has saved me a ton of money on apps. And time. And space on my iDevice. Heck, it's even saved me the cost of a couple of iDevice upgrades too.

    Meh. History repeats itself. Check out what happened when the consumer lost confidence with the video game industry in 1983. (Search video game crash 1983...). Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it. Those who do study history... Well, they're forced to watch everyone repeat it.

    • DoughnutOsAurus
