First Impressions: 'Crysis 3' Multiplayer | USA Today

Brett Molin: ''Unless their names are Call of Duty, Halo or Battlefield, a first- or third-person shooter trying to compete with online multiplayer will likely have a rough life. The trio has so strongly dominated the space, it's challenging for any other title to break through.

That doesn't imply none of the other experiences aren't enjoyable, one of which is Crysis 3, which launches Feb. 19 for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Based on the multiplayer beta released by developers Crytek, there are a couple reasons to slip into the Nanosuit.'' (Crysis 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Based on my experiences playing the PC Beta, "skill" (as in actually having your reticle over your prey) isn't a requirement.

Hopefully the single-player and kickass graphics will be enough. I'll stick to Halo 4 for my MP fix.

Hunter mode is fun, the other mode pretty much sucks

The beta just feels like an expansion pack to Crysis 2. Not much new..

Waiting for Single Player.

It was basically Crysis 2 with plants overgrown and covering everything. Not that thats a bad thing...but I couldn't help but feel like the multiplayer wasn't enough for me to commit to pre-ordering it.

I'll pick it up eventually.

Hunter was awesome, the only thing i wish i had was a melee weapon that makes you run a bit faster as a Hunter...like a bad ass katana.

Tried the Demo and its absolutely crap..There's no place for Cloak and Juggernaut aka Armour in a multiplayer shooter, there's no excuse. Epic fail. Why do u have to shoot people a thousand times to even make a kill. Multiplayer i give 4/10.

The beta is decent on PS3. Better frame rates overall compared to the multiplayer on Crysis2, unless that changes when there is more people playing the retail version. I hated Crysis2 multiplayer on Ps3 because the framerate was terrible, it's what made me quit the game altogether. Hopefully Crysis 3 doesn't follow suit of Crysis 2 . Graphics haven't changed much other than that.
