Crysis 3 offers a memorable story that players can get immersed in. The stunning visuals of the game help pull you in as well. The story in Crysis 3 serves as a prequel to the series, in that you play as Prophet, and you experience the nanosuit from his perspective. Previous Crysis players will especially like this. The Protagonist, Prophet, talks. That alone is a plus side, because I don't know about you but I'm pretty tired of the main character having the inability to talk. The game controls are easy to learn, even to new players. There is almost never a dull moment in the storyline. The story itself is good at building up to the climax, and the ending is spectacular. You can sense a bond between the characters. Throughout the game, you'll get the choice to take the silent approach or a direct approach. The levels themselves are huge, much bigger than those in Crysis 2. In my opinion this is a good thing, but some players may beg to differ. Despite my positive remarks on the game, there is only one question that I still had. If I ask it then I would reveal a spoiler, so I will just state this: this game is obviously a prequel because you are playing as prophet (I know this because something happened to him in Crysis 2...) yet at the end of the game he didn't give the.... That's all I'll say, if you beat the game you will know what I mean.
The replay value lies more in the multiplayer. I didn't feel like replaying the SP at all because some levels were so big and it had shoot that and this moments. In multiplayer, the new maps offer a certain amount of time before you get bored of them but the new game modes hold a great deal of enjoyable moments. There are alien guns lying around too which alter your HUD and make you feel superior when you obtain them, and skyline (a classic map in Crysis 2) looks so different, but in a good way. There are slightly more killstreaks, and you can even take control of a robot that shoots plasma (I forget the name of it).
I agree that Crysis 2 was much better. I felt very bored with this game and thought it was too short... and as far as trying to sneak around and stealth kill it did not seem to work, every time you kill someone others are alerted almost instantly.. so i give a 6 for effort.
