    Have you tried to run the 32-bit Application instead? I too had a lot of issues With Crysis 1 on my Win 8 PRO 64 bit Version. However it was in-game crashes With nothing in eventviewer... just died on me. I learned that save as often as possible and reload the game for each crash.

    Back to Your issue, a lot of issues With 64-bit Crysis and DX 10. I would have tried to run 32-bit With DX10, if thats not working either, try 32-bit and DX9.
    You can set DX10/9 With settings in the shortcut you have for Crysis.

    32-bit exe file is also in Your Crysis folder.

    Hope this can be of some help.
