Crysis is Back in New York

The next installment of the series was fun and the graphics were fantastic as usual, but it felt like there could have been more.

Graphics: It doesn't surprise me that Crysis is a beautiful game since it is powered by the CryEngine3. New York looks wonderful since it has been converted into a jungle and the lighting will definitely catch your eye.

Sound: The sound of your bow as you are about to take down a target is gratifying and your guns really feel that they can pack a punch. The musical soundtrack is nice as it helps to build tension or showcases the story.

Gameplay: The overall game didn't really feel all that different from Crysis 2 which is disappointing since it didn't feel like there was anything new to add to the plate other than a sub-par perk system.

Overall: I enjoyed the game and enjoyed being immersed in jungle-filled New York as I took down some Ceph but it still felt like I was playing an expansion of Crysis 2. I give it a 7/10.

Fun game, but not the best in the series.

It's an enjoyable game although it is fairly short. If you played the first Crysis then you can really tell how much the consoles influenced 2 and 3 in how linear they are. However I played Crysis 2 on the 360 and really enjoyed it to the point of replaying it on the hardest difficulty. This one just feels off in some way. Maybe it's the length, very limited story, boring characters.

That is the thing though, on my second play through the game is actually strong in all these compared to most other FPS titles. Recently playing Halo4 and Black Ops II this par for the course. Coming off of Far Cry 3 though and enjoying Crysis 1&2 so much I felt this could have been so much better.

I would rank it last in franchise.

Fantastic Graphics, with not so great story play

(FYI only played story)-- I thoroughly enjoyed this one for the first couple hours. Fantastic graphics, tons of gadgets, customization for weapons, it really has it all...except for the game-play. It was the same old (as most FPS single player stories have become) blow these up, man this turret for so long, hack this, follow this numbnuts for a bit, and...I'm somewhat okay with that...but the story really didn't engage me in the least, and i was struggling to play this for more that 30-40 min at a time. All in all, great gamefly game to rent, but wouldn't recommend purchase. Happy gamin!
