Crysis 3: It Isn’t All About The Graphics

X360M - Crysis 3 looks incredibly impressive, but Crytek is adamant there is more to its nano-focused shooter than graphics. But, is it enough to make Crysis 3 the must buy FPS of 2013? (Crysis 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It certainly isn't about the gameplay.

Crysis games are ALL about graphics & cinematography.

Nice try Crytek but even kids won't be fooled by this silly spin. If you want to add a touch of gameplay into the mix then look at what Rockstar, Bethesda, Blizzard, Valve, Media Molecule etc do !

Bubbles agreed totally.

Havn't played Crysis 1, but Crysis 2 was terrible IMO. The gameplay was worse than Halo 1 (I recently played anniversary).

The ONLY reason Crysis was ever famous was becuase of its graphics, and Crysis 2 had bad gameplay and Story, could barely get through it. Graphics is the only thing appealing, unless they improve the shooting mechanics and story.

Crysis 1 was the best Crysis game.

They say what they can. Crysis 2 was all about the visuals to push the hype/sales.

Now though, that the visual novelty has warn off and all your left with is the restricted level design, poor narrative, uninspired multiplayer and frankly weak gameplay, they've changed their tune. Personally, I expect 3 to be very much like 2 but slightly more freedom.

Crysis 1 was the best of both world. Go back to that.

Aren't they still trying to sell a general graphics engine?

The first game was of note because its system requirements started the upgrade/console debate while the second was suppose to be console friendly.

What's suppose to be the 3rd's hook?
