For those of you deciding on whether or not crysis 3 belongs in your Q I suggest that your decision comes from what kind of experience you want. The campaign is short but satisfying like crysis 2 and multiplayer is barely satisfying but is something that should be tried out. The overall story of the crysis series has a few bumps and loose ends but if you want a slightly engaging tale then this game does fine. Action is seamless and is probably the best thing bout the game. Jumping from stealth to full on firefights is riveting. Stealthily maneuvering around is tough and just moving from spot to spot at all is a hassle, I wish the developers added the function of climbing ledges and accessing the torn buildings around you on some levels. Overall level design looks cool but the actual fighting environment is not engaging as you mostly fight out in the open and makes stealth nearly impossible in later levels. Heavier enemies are a complete nuisance and act as sponges if you dont have alien tech, I wish there was someway to take them down manually if you stun them in a certain spot. The levels also demand the use of different weapons which leads me to want the ability to carry 3 and maybe even 4 weapons at a time to adapt to different situations. Overall it is great as an action game and I suggest you play crysis 2 before or after this.
