Crysis 2 deserves your money

Crysis 2 is a game that displays very high production values, graphics are great, animations are probably the nicest for a FPS I have ever seen. The game play as usual in crysis games with your choice of stealth and going loud, providing that very unique crysis gameplay. The introduction of nanosuit upgrades increases a feel of customisation to the game on top of the returning weapon customisation in combat. the Story line is also engaging, although those new to the series may have to do a small amount of prior reaserch. Multilayer is fun although it probably wont last you too long, I only play it every so often. The main problem I have with the game is that it is much more limited and linier in gameplay than crysis 1, open sections replaced with "tactical options", flanking, climbing into a sewer to go under the street, etc. these options are frequently the same. This doesn't follow on from the formula of the original crysis which is the most disappointing part of the game. However that being said it is a fantastic FPS with one the best sound tracks I have heard, if not the best for a game. I recommend buying this game if you are new to the series, but crysis veterans beware that the formula has changed from the fantastic original, not necessarily in a bad way, but it will disappoint older crysis players. The game is worth a buy though as I had alot of fun on the multiplayer with some friends as it is a nice break from battlefield or call of duty buy wont be a multiplayer you keep returning to.

Your computer cries with Cryteks' Crysis 3

Crysis 3 is renowned for its CPU destroying graphics, but a game needs more than that to be worth your money, right?

Crysis 3's singleplayer campaign is graphically jaw dropping, but luckily for people with poor eyes, it also boasts an interesting and diverse campaign. Crysis 2 has cinematic moments of brilliance, storyline twists and challenging enemies. Open maps allow you to approach hostile situations any way you want, be it stealthy or 'gun-ho'.

The only downsides to a highly unique FPS is the multiplayer. It isn't bad, it just feels bolted-on to supplement the singleplayer. The campaign also has ridiculous difficulty spikes, which can be at times frustrating.
