Conclusion: Crysis 3 is easily one of the most anticipated games of 2013. It runs on the CryEngine 3.5 and like other games in the franchise, it has managed to earn a reputation for its high system demands and graphics beyond what any other game at the time could possibly put out.
Excerpt: PC gaming is where you go for high-octane visuals, and the original Crysis was no exception when it dropped in 2007. The highly anticipated sequel in 2011, however, proved a less ambitious affair. We traded a vast, free-roam jungle for the relatively restricted avenues of a war-torn New York City.
Pros: Top-notch production values; interesting weapon variety; meaty multiplayer.
Cons: Single-player campaign is unchallenging; multiplayer community is small.
Excerpt: Upon first look, you're bound to fall in love with Crysis 3 . The latest shooter from Crytek is absolutely gorgeous looking, hits all the right notes and performs remarkably well mechanically - but that's just how it acts - mechanically.
Conclusion: Crysis 3 is a great shooter that manages to impress through gameplay and visuals. There's pretty much nothing better than going into a battle, using the various abilities of your Nanosuit, not to mention the unique weapons, like the bow, to take down legions of enemies all with gorgeous effects.
Pros: +Gorgeous visuals, +Unmatched Nanosuit mechanic, +Lots of explosive set pieces
Cons: -Enemies can detect the player through solid objects, -The story goes over the top
Conclusion: Be warned. Although Crysis 3 is wonderfully stunning to look at, it does require a graphics card with DirectX 11 compatibility. It is rather a strange move from EA and Crytek, because although myself, other reviewers and hardcore gamers will no doubt have no issues, the average gamer may simply...
Summary: Crysis 3 is all bark and no bite. You will be wowed by the beautiful landscapes. You will be amazed at the realistic facial animations and expressions. But you will be let down by the forcibly dumbed down experience riddled with boring additions.
