Crysis 3 is another killer first person shooter in the series by Crytek. The new Cry Engine 3 looks amazing, sound quality is great, the story and campaign are solid as usual, and even the online play is competitive and fun. It's amazing Crysis as you expect, with the addition of the deadly predator bow that makes C3 standout.
The story revolves around your character, Prophet, and his crazy nanosuit that we all dream of owning. His contact in Crysis 2 with the Ceph have transfered some of their powers/DNA into his suit. So he's got some crazy stuff going on, but Prophet still knows how to kill like a true unstoppable assassin. He's trying to stop the Ceph now and you deal with them and human Cell agents.
Best played on higher difficulties, Crysis 3 can still be played as a stealth game or run n gun shooter. Or combine both for variety of skill kills. The open worldish type environment gives you plenty of ways to explore and take on a level. You can disappear with cloaking to sneak in and stealth kill or avoid enemies, or simply use your crazy weapon and powers to kill everyone you see.
The new Predator Bow is simply badfreakingasss. Of course Prophet can make a bow look as awesome as it did in Rambo 3. It allows you to fire while cloaking, so you can pick off enemies at will. This new bow carries over to online play, and changes combat in Crysis more than anything else. It also has 4 different ammo types so you can string together electric kills on water or blow up some dudes with explosive Rambo arrow tips.
Crysis 3 suffers from some bugs, glitches, and freezes, but I'm willing to deal with them for the overall package. Online play can also be laggy, but it's under rated for sure. The ability to put together crazy power combinations and cloak/armor kills can be awesome. This game is definitely worth renting, and can be played free online (thanks EA).
If you've played and liked Crysis 2, you will like this game. Much more interactive and plenty of more detail has been put in this game compared to the last one. Everything is much more customizable and allows more ways to defeat your enemies and navigate through the game.
