Crysis 3 PC Review

I’m a huge fan of the original Crysis and Crysis Warhead but Crysis 2
was a huge letdown for me. Crysis 2 was clearly developed for consoles
first and then ported to PC. Anyways, Crysis 3 SP only took me around 5
hours to beat including all the side missions so it wasn’t that bad. The
graphics are easily one of the best I have seen and there’s no other
game out right now that has better graphics than Crysis 3 and that’s
including BF3, FC3, Hitman Absolution and Metro 2033. Even though I love
every single one of those games, I still believe Crysis 3’s graphics
are far better.

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.

Verdict: 85/100
