Go Back to the Future With Awesome Crysis Mod

| 24 Nov 2009 15:30

Thanks to this fan-made Crysis mod, you too can see some serious sh*t with Doc Brown's DeLorean time machine.

When it comes to the subject of time machines, are there any more iconic (or more badass) than Doc Brown's souped-up DMC-12 DeLorean from Back to the Future? I submit that there are not. But for as long as movie enthusiasts and sci-fi geeks have longed to be able to hop inside the gull-wing doors and hit 88 MPH to vanish in a burst of sparks and flaming tire tracks, the technology has long eluded us - perhaps due to a lack of Libyan-funded plutonium, but your guess is as good as mine.

We may not have the technology to create a real time-traveling DeLorean, but we do have Crysis, and at least one enterprising modder who has replicated Doc Brown's time machine in surprising fidelity. It isn't just the look of the car, either - the time-travel effects look spot on, and I can't be the only one who was watching the speedometer at the bottom of the screen as it inched towards 88, can I?

Modders: The #1 source of the world's most impressive and yet utterly pointless stuff. God bless 'em.

(I highly, highly recommend the Soundtrack version for maximum nostalgia, by the way)
