I was looking forward to this game, but the campaign does not make the grade. Neither the story nor the characters nor the gameplay are compelling. And it certainly doesn't look anything like New York to me. I enjoyed Crysis 2, but this one is a letdown. It's a better than average shooter, but just barely. Maybe a rent, but no cigar.
Nice graphics do not turn this run-of-the-mill military shooter into anything special. Being invisible for short bursts? Meh. Guns are ordinary. Enemies are common AI soldiers. Aussie sidekick is annoying. Been here. Done this. I recall enjoying Crysis 2, which I rated a 7, but this chapter in the saga was boring. (I do not do multiplayer; this game might be OK for lovers of squad-based games ... I have no idea.)
