Crysis 3′s Bow Looks Like A Nice Change From The Usual Guns

New to Crysis 3 is the bow, which wasn’t present in the previous two Crysis games. Given that this is Crysis, though, we’re looking a high-tech bow that takes enemies apart in a rather satisfying way when you hit them, especially up close. EA demonstrated the weapon in a new promo video for the game, which you can watch below: (Crysis 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sweet. I wouldn't mind a more tactical stealthy weapon. It was fun in Far Cry 3.

Meh they are trying to take a leaf out of Far crys book. They have ran out of ideas so though hell lets throw in a bow!

how so? we saw this bow from the moment Crysis 3 was leaked. or unless Crytek went into the future and ripped ideas from Far Cry, yeah that's it.

Far Cry isn't the first game with a bow.

Meh Farcry 3's entire setting is just taking a leaf out of crytek's farcry 1. They must have run out of ideas?

So farcry 3 invented bows? hmm did turok use a butter knife to hunt?

Seem some people say crytek sucks no matter what.

I personally enjoy the look of the game and also I think being the only game with a nano suit with changeable powers that adds strategy and cause you to think in a shooter with different ways of approaching it is still rare.

Yet since it has a bow some think it's completely generic?

I am pretty sure your 12 and think Cod is the first shooter.

Also I hope this level will be in multiplayer. That high grass!!

yeah tell that to Turok

Turok could've been something really great with a few more months of polish.

Will there be any reasoning for why you never had a bow before? Like maybe this is homemade?

My computer is ready to dominate this game! Can't wait!
AKS  +   1015d ago
Yeah, that's what you think. Your PC is no match for Toad Tech!
cannon8800  +   1015d ago
haha I totally forgot about that toad. Now I'm having second thoughts about my pc being able to handle the toad. http://www.enizr.com/media/...

Looks like crysis 2 to me, but aren't they already working on crysis 4 wasn't that leaked. if so guess ill have to skip this one.
Ezz2013  +   1015d ago

you might wanna skip crysis 4 too
Mocat  +   1015d ago
Ah thanks for the heads up

Never seen a bow in a game before?

What's a bow?
-Gespenst-  +   1015d ago
There's something a bit too primitive about a bow for it to be in Crysis... A crossbow might make more sense.
AKS  +   1015d ago
Sounds like you missed the point of the narration and entire theme of the video, then.

Also, this particular bow featured in the video hardly seemed like an instrument used by early hunter/ gatherer cultures. I think their access to exploding arrows and stealth cloaking was rather limited.
-Gespenst-  +   1015d ago
Just the idea of a bow with a bowstring in a game like Crysis though. Seems dumb to me.

And god that was the worst narration ever. There's nothing profound or sophisticated about thinking human beings are hunters by nature. How many times have we heard that schtick? If anything human beings have no fixed nature anyway. Plus, thinking about humans are naturally primal hunters is totally regressive.

Anyhow, this game, like Crysis 2, doesn't look like it has much meat on it. It just looks like another graphics showcase (The graphics ARE excellent). I was hyped for 2, bought it, enjoyed it moderately, but I haven't touched it since, and I doubt I'll ever play it again. I have a strong feeling it would be the same all over again with 3.

Skyrim has started a bow and arrow epidemic. I love it!
