RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

What do these ratings mean?

Crysis 3's story is ridiculous.  

Crysis started us off on a mission to murder North Koreans - enemies who looked and felt real.  
Crysis' sequels made all the enemies helmeted "stormtroopers" that all looked alike.  The alien enemies aren't as interesting or as diverse as those found in the HALO games.  

I preffered stalking and murdering people who looked like people. The only improvement would have been giving them "gore zones" like 1998's SOLDIER OF FORTUNE.    After all, what goo are "the best graphics in the world" if the character models aren't realistic?  I could give a damn about "weeds", "grass" and building textures.  I want realistic enemy models who are INJURED instead of killed outright by injuries that are intended to cripple them.

Why does shooting someone in the knee with an Arrow kill them??? Shouldn't they be crippled and waiting to be put out of their misery by a Coupe de Gras?

Crysis 3 is too short and too easy due to the fact you can remain invisible while murdering your enemies - only pausing to recharge energy for your cloaking suit.  Add to that the game has fewer levels than Crysis 2 and it feels that the development was lopsided. However - this does give Crysis 3 a far more thorough Multiplayer than Crysis 2 had. It takes longer to upgrade weapons and rank up to the highest level than it did in Crysis 2.   

Unfortunately the Multiplayer that actually plays best is CELL vs. Rebels - a mode where you have no nanosuits, but access to all the weapons. You lose your ability to jump high and cloal  making the gameplay more reminiscent (and arguably better) than Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.  CoDBO2 has higher resolution character models on the console than Crysis 3 -  but C3 has far superior maps to just about everything offered int he entire CoD series.   I shelved CoDBO2 because I got tired of running around in circles shooting others int he back/ being shot int he back.  Crysis 3 offers a wider environment, better balanced weaponry and considerably better game modes.

Hopefully you love bows & arrows because it's the only weapon people online will be using. The arrow is so overbalanced, it's easier to "snipe" someone with it than it is with the gauss cannon.  Add to that Crysis3's glitches and Z-buffer problems and you'll end  up being hit with arrows through concrete walls.

Crysis 1 was a better singleplayer experience in just about every way and Crysis2/3 are nothing more than "Call of Duty-ized" versions of Crysis.  If Crysis ever wants to make a sequel or spinoff, they should follow the Battlefield model.  Battlefield 3 has the best multiplayer war experience to date.   


You'll also need a MONSTER to run this game.  I'm using an HP ENVY H8  with a core i7 and 32 GB of HyperX BEAST memory with a GTX 680 (4GB) card.   This is well above the requirements to run it in ultra settings, but with this game, every little bit helps.
