The conclusion to the most beautiful looking series video games have seen. Crysis 3 caps off a great trilogy (for the time being). The story mode is great, it brings you into the nano suit of prophet once again who was the main protagonist in the original Crysis game. You don't get the open world of a Crysis 1 but you get big open areas in New York that gives you that feeling of freedom when tackling each mission. You can use multiple ways to take out enemies like going all in guns blazing or stealth with your cloak engaged. A great new weapon in the game is the bow. I wasn't too thrilled about it at first but once I got my hands on it, I used it more than any other weapon. The feeling of accomplishment when you get the kill is great. However, there is a downside to Crysis 3. The story is a bit short, in fact very short. It runs you about 4-5 hours which is very short in comparison to other Crysis games. The multiplayer is where I had most fun, tons of game modes but nothing brand new or game changing to online shooters of course. Its fun running around in your nano suit and taking out enemies online

Crysis 3 was a Beautiful game, not only with graphics, but an amazing storyline as well! A lot of people said this game wasn't worth it, but in my opinion I enjoyed every minute of it, and I've actually replayed the campaign of the game over a few times, and I don't usually play campaigns on these kind of games more than once. It was a very smooth game, with flashy graphics and tessellated vegetation, that kept your imagination alive when wandering through a wrecked city. The campaign was well put together, and kept you wanting to continue. Then there was the multiplayer, which was as well, very well done. I found that the Multiplayer wasn't as good as some other games Online Experience, but Crysis 3 knew where to hit the spot when dealing with close combat, sniping, and all out stealth wars. I found when playing Multiplayer, the servers were quite empty, so I suppose that everyone else didn't like the MultiPlayer as much as I did, but I still enjoy it! In Conclusion, if you're looking for a game where you get to take out Aliens with Big Guns or Stealth, and game that uses a bow with mods on it, or a game that has online stealth wars, Crysis 3 is your game!

The game is a beast graphically speaking on PC especially with some added mods. On the game play side though it feels like the rest of the crysis series, I didn't find anything new. With that in mind the game is a must buy for new comers but can be dull for others that started to get bored by the end of Crysis 2.

Game looks fantastic in graphical but game story is short and not too interesting.

The original Crysis and its sequel, Warhead, are among my favourite shooters. The openness of the world allowed you to find creative solutions to missions. With Crysis 2, Crytek took a much more linear approach to level design in the vein of most modern FPS releases and placed a greater emphasis on their story; decisions which I felt were detrimental to the series. Crysis 3 promised to be a combination of the two, but for the most part it failed in that regard.
Level designed has been opened up somewhat, insofar that the corridors you are travelling down have been widened - sometimes quite significantly - but areas still only have one entrance and exit. While this in itself is not a problem, it does not recapture the feeling from Crysis that you can attack an objective however you please. It does, however, occasionally allow you to choose which order you do objectives in.
The story started in Crysis 2 is back in full force; a blessing or a curse depending on how much you enjoyed it the first time. While I have never expected much of the series' storytelling, I appreciated the first game's relative minimalism. Crytek's attempts at poignancy and gravitas fall flat and I was particularly disappointed when the ending came down to serendipity.
If I found the gameplay particularly enjoyable, something I do not recall having any issues with previously, the story's issues could be easily overlooked. The only difference between 3 and the previous entries that I can point to as having made it less enjoyable is the introduction of the bow. Having loved the bows in the Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider I was fully expecting to love it here; and I do, in theory. Crysis' bow is a great weapon and perhaps my favourite in the game; at full tension it one-shots most enemies in the game, and you can fire it while cloaked. These are also the reasons why it ruined my enjoyment of the game; it is so powerful that you rarely have a reason to use anything else. It being the most useful weapon, I used it for the majority of the game and subsequently got quite bored. Perhaps it's my own fault for not changing up my style, but I didn't feel the game ever gave me a reason to want to.
