With barely a speck of light to guide your way, W + K, Amsterdam's teaser site for EA's upcoming first-person shooter release "Crysis" gives a hearts-of-darkness taste for gaming enthusiasts and casual observers. 

Like a scene out of Platoon or Apocalypse Now, the homepage allows visitors to use arrow keys and navigate through a dark, ominous jungle with machine gun in tow. As dramatic narration and foreign voices waft in the background, participants are eventually led to a portal that whisks them straight into a scene from the game, where the enemy unleashes an onslaught of ammo your way. While at this point, the site is beyond your control, the "Crysis" experience place you smack dab in the middle of the game, reminding us of Ubisoft's site for "Assassin's Creed."
