The story in Crysis 3 takes place in New York and it's completely transformed into a jungle and vegetation has ripped the city apart. The game opens up with people who are provided with bows and arrows which is different from any other game I have played. Your main weapon will be the bow and it plays an extremely important role in the game. You will find yourself using the bow whenever you run out of ammo and there are several kinds of arrowheads to choose from such as exploding and electrifying. This makes it even more fun to use, and there is not many times when it is not suitable.
The graphics are what make this game truly shine and you will need a powerful machine to run it. There are some parts of the game that feels like they are not optimized and you will see your FPS dip below 30 but most of the game feels well optimized. The textures are amazingly beautiful and if you look close to the objects, you can see all the tiny details. In Crysis 2 you couldn't see any detail at all and it was blurry and low resolution. The visual effects are a major upgrade over the original Crysis and Crysis Warhead. The environments look super realistic and feature complex, wide open jungle environment with a lot of destructibility and interactivity.
The multiplayer portion of Crysis 3 feels unique and this is largely due to the environment because New York feels different from any other game we have seen before. The arenas are big with lots of hiding places and factors to take into consideration. In addition, there are fun game types, above all, Hunter, where two invisible hunters with just bow and arrow have to hunt 10 Cell-soldiers. Every dead soldier becomes a hunter, making it harder and harder for those remaining to stay alive.
Overall, if you are a fan of the original Crysis and Crysis Warhead then you will fall love in love with Crysis 3. The graphics are hands down the best part of this game and it is easily the best looking game out right now. It has an enjoyable story, and a unique multiplayer that has never been done before. I definitely recommend Crysis 3 to anyone and especially to the fans who loved the first two titles. I give Crysis 3 a solid 85/100 simply because Crytek learned from the mistake that they made with Crysis 2.
