The trilogy ends...thankfully. 0

The first Crysis was a technical accomplishment, becoming a benchmark for PC gamers for years. Crysis 2 was a more linear adventure, that seemed to focus more on telling a story..with less then great results. Now we have Crysis 3, a game that tries to tell an even more epic story, but not only fails at that, it fails at being anything but a forgettable shooter with nothing new. (Expect a BOW!!) One of the biggest surprises of Crysis 3 is how hard Crytek tries to tie all 3 games together. Its a ...

Graphics and great core gameplay help overlook a poor story and short campaign 0

Crysis 3 attempts to take the best parts of 1 & 2 and find a nice middle ground between open world and linear exploration. It leans too heavily on the linear side, but the set pieces are great and the graphics are incredible. I enjoyed the moment to moment game play quite a bit, but found the story to lack the complexity that it thinks it has....

Where the parts is less than the sum 0

It's a pretty common description for a lot of things that are created, whether game franchises, movie series or albums, where "you take the 'x' from this, take the 'y' from that, put 'em in a blender and you get a perfect package". So with Crysis 3, presumably the last in the Crytek franchise, the goal here is to combine the much more open-ended and player driven gameplay of the first game with the straightforward and refined elements they tried in the sequel. And like the other common phrase, ...

Hunting and Nano-suiting 0

Crysis 3 takes place 20 years from the end of Crysis 2, and has players assuming the role of Prophet as he fights to takedown the human CELL forces, as well as the remaining alien Ceph threat. His fight begins back in New York, where CELL have dramatically altered the terrain with a biodome, changing New York into a real urban jungle. The visuals that Crysis 3 bring are still as impressive as ever, and the gameplay is just as good especially when using the new cross-bow that uses the nano-siut t...

A decent installment in a franchise that needs some time off. 0

I was a big fan of the original Crysis because of how it blended gave a sandbox element to the familiar FPS genre. It was janky at times, but the story was fun, the graphics were incredible, and it played rather well. I also enjoyed Crysis 2, though slightly less than the original. The narrative was tough to follow at times and I just found myself having less fun despite the streamlined gameplay design. And now we have Crysis 3. True to it's predecessors, the visuals are a sight to behold. Havi...
