The controls are fluid and easy to use, I just wish there was more to the story, it makes no sense to me. Also where is New York in all of this. There is absolutely nothing recognizable. Too many cut scenes too. But overall it was enjoyable if not too short.

The game is crippled by a horrible audio bug that makes the sound cut in and out ever 1 second that completely ruins the game and experience. Rebooting the game only give you a couple mins or even seconds before the audio begins bugging out again. On top of that the frame rate is god awful for the 360, it dips down to the low 10s, then pops back up especially when theres a lot of explosions or effects like weather (rain- in the beginning).
On top of that its nothing like Crysis too. For the first 2 chapters I just ran past all the enemies, checkpointed and then got the achievement for completely the chapter. Within the first hour I have already beaten 3 chapters of the game by running past everything. The cloaking system doesn't work at all like it did in the previous games, the enemies always can see through your cloak - it's like the game wants you to play it as a run and gun shooter. I really loved Crysis for the cloaking mechanic and it is silly they take this away from you.
This review is based solely on the 360 version. I am sure these problems don't plague the PC version of this title. Overall just a game in general you wanna play on a good system.
