Summary: Crysis 3 is all about the multiplayer. The short, forgettable campaign pales in comparison to the hours of fun I had with the fast and furious multiplayer component. A familiar unlock system so popular for the genre is augmented by the Nanosuit’s powers and a host of perks that ramp up the action to a speed not seen since Quake 3 .
Conclusion: Overall, Crysis 3 is an impressive game. While it’s far from the perfect game, there is a lot of fun to be had here for gamers of diverse playstyles, ranging from multiple routes to varied, solid weaponry. It’s more than just a re-skin of Crysis 2, with new additions, namely the Predator Bow, adding new depth to gameplay. The A.I were great too, flanking me and taking cover, instead of charging mindlessly into my arrows/bullets/fists of fury.
Summary: Crysis has always had pretentions of depth, though any meaningful narrative was drowned out by its own array of outlandish weaponry and alacritous ‘shooting gallery’ style of gameplay. Not so with this trilogy-capping outing – the focus is firmly on hero Prophet’s existential crisis. There’s no missing the effort to be perceived as serious science fiction, this time.
Excerpt: The team at Crytek makes beautiful games. Futuremark may be the professional tool of choice for testing system performance, but if you can run the latest Crytek game at full visual settings then you KNOW your system is giving top of the line performance. People were talking non-stop about the Unreal Engine 4 demo that we recently saw at E3 and then again on the PS4.
Pros: Graphics are unparallelled by any game – they are that good, The best rain I’ve seen….ever (it’s good enough to justify a second bullet), 5 difficulty levels, Flexible gameplay between stealth and combat, Nanosuit and weapon upgrades add to the flexibility, The Predator bow changes the game, Hunter mode makes multiplayer worth playing, Decent AI
Cons: Storyline goes way off the rails near the end, Enemy variety lacks a bit, Still locked onto the rails, even if the rails are wider
Excerpt: Crysis was a leap into the future for PC gaming in 2007 – that is if you even had the PC to run it back then. When Crysis 2 came out it provided a modest leap in graphical prowess – but ultimately lacked in the fun that Crysis had provided. Now, Crytek hopes to correct those past mistakes with Crysis 3, but does it bring back the franchise back to its PC gaming roots or is it just another FPS to get lost amongst the noise?
Crysis 3 review: An enjoyable shooter elevated by staggering visuals
19 February 2013
Summary: The Crysis series has always been defined by bleeding-edge tech, each instalment a lucid demonstration of apex videogame visuals and the great pulsing brain powering successive CryEngines. In Crysis 3 we have the pinnacle - the undisputed best-looking game of all time - but beneath the glitz, Crytek's shooter isn't quite as progressive as it seems.
Pros: The best-looking game of all time, Refreshingly open levels, Surprisingly good multiplayer
Cons: Only millionaires will max it out, A lack of new ideas, Single-player lasts 5-6 hours
Conclusion: Em suma, Crysis 3 revela-se um jogo dotado de um enorme potencial, quer a nível de enredo, quer a nível gráfico, que poderá certamente fazer deste um dos mais sérios candidatos a jogo do ano em 2013. Contudo, a sua monotonia no modo "campanha" acaba por retirar algum interesse a uma história rica e repleta de potencial, obrigando o jogador a executar um rol de ações por vezes demasiadamente idênticas e repetitivas, fazendo-se valer as "cutscenes" e mudanças de ambiente...
