"A highly polished shooter experience that doesn’t so much reinvent the FPS wheel as give it a slicker set of tyres." - IGN.com

Amazing graphics, decent game.13thmurder | May 25, 2014 | See all 13thmurder's reviews »
It's one of the most beautiful games you'll ever play, if your computer can handle it.
The gameplay itself is alright, but nothing all too special. The suit has less modes than in the original game, which takes out some of the challenge, since you don't have to give up being well armoured to cloak or sprint anymore.
It still has the excellent weapon modding system though, which has always been one of my favourite things in this series.

The first Crysis game made a reputation as being the most graphically intense game ever made and kept it's title for quite a while. As the video game industry progressed in technology, Crysis became outdated. Crysis is back with it's third installment taking back the title as the game with the highest graphics.
The story is future science fiction with aliens so it's of course quite interesting. The characters have amazing actors and top notch facial animation.
I'll be honest. The gameplay is not as good as the first Crysis. It's much more linear with smaller maps and less options as to how to approach your objective ingame. The combat is still very good. Constant fast paced action while always giving you the ability to slip into the shadows and take things slowly.
The online multiplayer gamemodes are very fun, fast paced, have good maps, and unique from other FPS title games.
The combination of extremely realistic graphics and great acting make this game very immersive. Even if it's not your type of game you could still get it to show of your computer's graphics or to stress test your computer's hardware.
Check to see if your computer has the horsepower to handle this game at it's highest. If not, at least at the minimum settings requirement.
Best graphics yet. Okay gameplay!SonicusZ | Feb. 4, 2014 | See all SonicusZ's reviews »
Okay this game looks amazing. I have actually stopped playing and just admired the graphics at a few spots and there have even been a couple situations that the graphics helped me. Like in multiplayer when I'm hiding next to a tunnel filled with water and I can tell if someone is going through the tunnel based off the light reflecting off the water! So if you got a nice PC this is the game to show it off! Now on to gameplay. The multiplayer is fun for a little while but not all that original. The hunter mode is probably the most unique and my favorite. The single player is fun and offers great combat and lets you explore here and there. It is still nothing compared to what the first crysis was and the game is also really short. I really wish this game was longer since I did enjoy playing it but because of it's length I'd recommend buying this only if it's really cheap!
Brilliant art style and storytommy255 | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all tommy255's reviews »
First person shooters tend to grow old fast when I'm behind the gun, especially if its a single player game. BioShock Infinite managed to steer clear of this trend, leading me from start to finish within a few days.
I loved the art style and setting. The world is so beautifully built and crafted by the developers and the story line is both touching and clever. Throughout the game I grew to care about the characters and I was genuinely interested in learning more about them.
The gameplay was often fast and furious, mixing gunplay and supernatural powers amazingly well which helped create some very unique and exciting battles. Swapping and changing your powers and loadouts really helped to add an extra layer to Bioshock.
Despite my ability to grow bored of the genre pretty quickly I absolutely loved Bioshock Infinite. Its worth diving in for so many reasons, story line, gameplay, there's just so much to try.
Maximum Spectacletommy255 | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all tommy255's reviews »
The game is stunning in appearance, with every aspect of vision and sound meticulously crafted. The control scheme is also perfect and there is never any significant disconnect between the player's intent and the character's actions. Crysis 3 continues the traditions of its forebears in these regards, pushing a new generation of gaming PCs to their limits. Predictably, this game also suffers from the same weaknesses as earlier entries in the series: a weak plot and few interesting characters. The supporting character Psycho adds a personal touch that has been absent entirely in previous games, but he alone is not enough to compensate for the non-characters that perfunctorily populate the rest of the game.
The bow enhances the stealth element to gameplay, which is consistently good fun, right up until the last couple of missions where stealth ceases to be an option. The final boss fight is a frustrating jump in difficulty. However, since the story is so uncompelling I didn't see any reason to push through and just gave up at that point. The game had given me what I had wanted and I had derived the enjoyment I had expected by that point.
