cover of the magazine included and this time it's not fake!

Referring to your MP comment, its probably is. If I were to buy this game, hunter mode would be my top reason to buy it.

Hunter mode is great. I can't help but shake the feeling this is gonna be a rather mediocre game though.

I mean look at Crysis 2 reviews, look how high THEY were. And once you've taken away the graphics what are you really left with?
starchild  +   654d ago
Umm...the reviews were pretty good for Crysis 2 and...low and behold it was a good game in many people's opinion. Imagine that.

I don't understand you silly people who think that the world revolves around your opinion.

I really enjoyed Crysis 2. A lot more than most shooters, that's for sure.

I'm excited for Crysis 3. The amazing graphics are only the icing on the cake.

Hi five starchild. The graphics just make it better, the Crysis series adds a nice and much needed variety to the point and shoot monotony of other FPS games. It's also an interesting story line. Hunter mode is also brilliant fun, I can see this game doing really well..
Drumsmasher  +   654d ago
Lol, Starchild. I think you're trolling, but idk in reality. Defending Crysis 2, and saying that someone's opinion doesn't matter? Do you work for EA? I mean, your name is starchild! I hated ME3!
Gaming101  +   654d ago
Seriously, if this is a measly 5 hour game on normal difficulty I'm not buying it. Hunter mode is a cheap distraction. If they can't create a single player that last's more than 10 hours, considering it's more open world than Crysis 2, you would've thought they could include more.

This is starting to look like a stupid tech demo. Multiplayer was garbage. Hunter mode was a distraction; something that loses all its novelty after not very long. Plus with cloak suit it's practically a camper's dream. Now you have people sitting and waiting while being invisible so you have no chance of not getting killed by them. If you have a PC this game's only redeeming factor is that it's really good looking provided you were nerdy enough to spend 2 grand on your PC to make Crysis 3 run on ultra high settings.

No one seems to have noticed that this is a polish magazine reviewing a polish game.

Not saying they are biased. But not saying they aren't either. :) I'd probably wait for more reviews to come in before being too happy.

Judging by the MP beta I wasn't impressed at all. Imo the graphics on the console version looked worse than Crysis 2, which is very weird. Gameplay was a very standard affair.

8-page review?

It might take me longer to read the review than to beat the campaign.

And overall it got 9 out 10 O_o Short but really really fun is what im getting from this review.
hosseincode  +   654d ago
looks like multiplayer is good enough
DizzyDino  +   654d ago
I will rent it from Redbox. I rent all the short games from them.
DigitalAnalog  +   654d ago
@Matthew
Nowadays, even the legendary Halo can be finished within the same time period. Let's face it. It has become a gen concerned about putting tech first then work with content later, or simply they will use multiplayer as an excuse to promote some false "value", no matter how generic into the game.

At least it has better multiplayer, and at least the story makes sense.
Hooby  +   654d ago
Methinks you havent played the legendary halo. Well, maybe with 3 other friends, but def not alone.
Bathyj  +   654d ago
im not believing 5 hours. i never finish games as quick as they say. and crysis is a game i will sneak my whole way through.
Murad  +   654d ago
Well you got to remember that games normally take the best score from the overall time completion, rather than the overall time it took to complete the chapter/ level. Or that's what I've known so far for most titles, like Vanquish for example.
IAmLee  +   654d ago
it's not about quantity, it's about quality :')
andibandit  +   653d ago
What matters is the product of both.
If either of them is zero, the other wont matter
Yodagamer  +   654d ago
Well the article did mention something about something cool afterwards, so maybe it's something that will elongate the single player experience.
masa2009  +   654d ago
Disappointing especially since C2 was longer than your average contemporary shooter.
Oh well, I guess the lerger environments explain this. And probably the 2-year tops dev cycle.
LapDance1974  +   653d ago
Agree totally, was pretty shocked it came out so quick.Not to mention the no DX10 support annoys me, and I was a huge fan of the first game, but I have serious reservations about this game.

tronjohn  +   654d ago
The game length and enjoyment sky-rocket on higher difficulties. Crysis games are best played on the hardest difficulties! The AI is more cunning, the HUD is less littered with bullshit and you actually have to plan your attack instead of using your bullet-sponge armour. I encourage everyone to try it this way. The game becomes a tactical puzzle of sorts (I am assuming the levels are more similar to Crysis 1's more open layout)
-Gespenst-  +   654d ago
That's ridiculous. The visual quality and design are really alluring, but if that's actually true, I'm not getting this game.
pr0digyZA  +   654d ago
5 hours seems short. But if you take a step back and think about this then
A ) the magazine had a deadline as it needed to go to print and was the first review, meaning the reviewer was most likely pressed for time.

B) when crysis 2 was released some reviewers claimed it was 6 hours long, which turned out to be not true for the majority of players (although some finished in 4 hours, but others finished In 15), this seems to show that there is quite a lot of variation in play styles that can affect time.

The only way we will really know for sure is when more reviews are up.
A7XEric  +   654d ago
Honestly it always takes me longer to beat these games than what these early reviews always say. And game length also in no way reflects the quality of the experience.

I beat Journey in almost one sitting and it was probably the best game I played all year.

But nevertheless it is a little disappointing to hear it is that length, especially given how lengthy Crysis 2's campaign was compared to other modern shooters

Sorry but Crysis2 did not have a long campaign by any standards.
Tyre  +   654d ago
That the problems see u guys have unimaginative standards, with Crysis the gameplay open, they leave it to the player how he gets to the next area. It is not like holding ur hand all the time and just straight to the next area by brute force 'u can' but it is by far the baddest way to play Crysis. If they say 5 hours, they mean put difficulty on very easy and go straight to every checkpoint by brute force, that my friend is the way to beat every game in 5 hours & the least fun...very boring & unimaginative way to play a game, especially Crysis.
BlindGuardian  +   654d ago
Crysis 2 along with the first Resistance have the longest single player campaign for FPS this generation

and this is from someone who finishes the COD games in less than four hours in hardened

A7XEric  +   654d ago
Maybe not compared to Skyrim or something, but it took me around 10 hours to beat which is way longer than all of these 4 hour Military Shooters on the market right now.
Imalwaysright  +   654d ago
@ BlindGuardian FC3 campaign is much longer than RFoM campaign.
SAE  +   654d ago
For me it's the opposite >.< . I always take less time to complete the games then the official or even players time..
SP3333D-O  +   654d ago
Not trusting early reviews as they tend to be overly generous. Hope it holds true.
Bathyj  +   654d ago
cmon crysis dont let me down.
im supposed to be playing aliens this week but thats not happening.
if this falls through i have to wait til god of war to play something.
Campy da Camper  +   654d ago
BioShock infinite in less than 2 weeks.
AlphaCentyros  +   654d ago
Sorry to disappoint you, but Infinite got delayed to March.
SAE  +   654d ago
This is my list for Feb and March :)

MGR / CRYSIS3 / TOMB RAIDER / GOD OF WAR ASCENSION / DEAD OR ALIVE + / BIOSHOCK INFINITE / METRO
Plagasx  +   654d ago
Metro's not coming in March anymore bro..:(
PickAShoe  +   654d ago
BlindGuardian  +   654d ago
Metro might not come out at all, let alone march
aliengmr  +   654d ago
Metro is nearly complete. Koch wouldn't have purchased it just to cancel it. If it were in pre-production maybe.

It might be delayed, but cancelling it would be absurd.
SAE  +   654d ago
What. Why?. It's only one month away. Why hold it or even cancel it when they can profit >.<. That's a bit annoying :(

Thanks for telling me.

Because the publishers (THQ) kicked the bucket, and all their games were auctioned off.

Koch Media/Deep Silver bought Metro : Last Light, so have to wait until they decide what to do with it.
smashcrashbash  +   654d ago
Not liking the MP beta so far.I know people will disagree with me but the maps are a little too detailed. I can barely see anything and I am not even sure if I am hitting anyone.Maybe the SP might be better but if it is too short I really don't want to spend too much time in MP.I don't see why these type of games can't give up a nice big chuck of SP to play.What is so hard about making the SP just as meaty as the MP? It is a dark road we are going down that people are thinking of culling or abandoning SP altogether.

Yeah picked up mp beta played it for an hour and havent looked back since. Either way Crysis games are mediocre affairs and def. not worth 60 bucks. Crytek is one of those devs. i seriously wouldn't mind going under their games are just so meh!!!! Always overhyped basura!!!!
KontryBoy706  +   654d ago
I really hope this game turns out good. I need a different multiplayer to play. Worn out of Battlefield at the moment.
Eazy-Eman  +   654d ago
Is it really necessary to include "World's first X Review" in the title? It's like the equivalent of saying "FIRST" in the comments section

It's not gonna be that great of a game. It's just a game to make some quick cash before next gen gets here. Disagree all you want. Thats just the way it is.
pr0digyZA  +   654d ago
? On what basis is that, are you saying that about all games coming out before next gen starts like Ascension, last of us, bioshock. Because so far I see a 9/10.
PAYNEinc85  +   654d ago
The Last of Us, and Bioshock Infinite bring new things to the table. What does Crysis 3 bring compared to Crysis 2?

Uh ill have to wait to see how this game fairs out before i buy it across the board

How blessed we are this gen to have so many games getting near perfect scores. Truly must be the golden age of gaming the way so many high profile "AAA" titles have reached such quality they meet and exceed gamers expectations.

Just a 5 hr campaign? Hmmm. I'm more of a campaign player myself though I do enjoy the MY beta. I may pick it up I suppose. Well done with the 9/10 anyway. A shame aliens colonial marines didn't score that high also. Agh well, can't all be great I suppose.
iNMyFiN4LH0uR  +   654d ago
Crysis always feels like a game without a soul, an achievement in the technical graphics part but something always feels terribly bland and boring about the franchise.
Mrmagnumman357  +   654d ago
We were discussing this over at Crydev, and we all agreed that the 5 hour figure is far from accurate, unless they were on a speed run. The Crysis 3 pak file is also bigger then both C1 and C2 combined, which eludes to but doesn't confirm that this game will be atleast as long as Crysis 2
mayberry  +   654d ago
Hopefully its a game I can sneak and extend the campaign. Back to Killzone 3 online in the mean-time :)
