Crysis 3 (PlayStation 3) review
"Crysis 3 doesnít have any major flaws, but it also doesnít offer anything out of the ordinary."
Crysis 3, from Crytek, is a beautiful first person shooter that has you play as Prophet, a nanosuit powered super human. The combat is engaging, but the best part of the game is the new Cryengine 3 game engine, which adds an amazing level of detail to everything. Crysis 3 doesnít have any major flaws, but it also doesnít offer anything out of the ordinary.
I have not played the first two Crysis games, and I believe the story in the third iteration would have been more meaningful if I had. The story is acceptable, though not innovative in the sci-fi genre; a human organization is exploiting alien technology, and it does not end well. The single player campaign was not long enough for me to feel an attachment to Prophet and his allies. The story tries to be sad and dramatic, but without my empathy, the characters despair meant nothing to me. The dialogue isnít horrible, but at the same time it isn't interesting. Like the rest of the game, the story doesnít do anything terribly wrong, but it also doesnít bring anything new to the table.
