IGN - Crysis 3: Giving Meaning to the FPS

IGN - ust how human is Crysis 3 going to be? According to various interviews from developer Crytek, this game will attempt to subvert meat-headed norms in first-person-shooters, and aim straight for the player’s emotional reactor core.

But it’s no easy thing to give an FPS real heart.

Crysis 3 is a violent video game offering apocalyptic fantasies of neo-fascistic corporations unhinged by the grim consequences of tech-timeline chaos-events, thrown together with jellyfish alien incursions and megalomaniacal boffinry. All this is folded into Discovery Channel visions of verdantly corrupted metropolata inhabited by warriors, not so much grizzled by combat, as smelted to mechanistic extremes. (Crysis 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Best looking game this gen

Killzone 3 is the best looking shooter this generation, followed up by Killzone 2.
Crysis looks great, but generic and unoriginal when it come's to art and level design, wile better then Crysis 2.

I have to very very much disagree with you. When you look at the tecture in killzone up close, you can see that it is all blurred out. That's how they made it work for this generation of consoles. Plus the PS3 and Xbox 360 both support directx 8.1 to 9.0. Crysis 1-3 support 9-11 on the PC. Killzone has nothing on Crysis.

Come on dude. There is no way you think Killzone looks better than Crysis on PC.

You think Killzone isn't a generic shooter?

Sorry but you couldn't be more wrong.

There's tons of comparison there and kz3 has some o the blurriest textures possible. It's "art style" also mimics that of gears or war an pretty much every other modern game. They're great games but not the best looking shooter.

If your going by art style then halo 4 takes the cake. It has it's own look that no other game has.

We are talking about PC

@allsystemgamer

You got it backwards dude. Killzone had its art style long before gears was a thing. Killzone 2 is the second game in the franchise....sbould be obvious with the 2. Further, gears even bites Killzone's story of who's really the villain.

As for the op...agreed on console but at medium settings, crysis 2 kills anything on console. One the posters mention d something about blurry textures as if its not the same on crysis. The difference is, most objects in KZ are actual things with physics and not painted on indestructible objects like the infected people in Crysis 2.

@digital Smoke

Seems you only game on consoles...That remark gave it away

@InTheLab

Crysis 2 on the PC is a different animal altogether then its Console counter part. When you enable all settings, there is simply no console game that comes close to Crysis 2 on the PC. As for physics? That may apply to the console version but not to the PC version. Moreover KZ2 and KZ3 do not even use HDR or real time lighting.

Jesus, PC people, make up your minds. Do PCs have generations or not? DigitialSmoke said "Killzone 3 is the best looking shooter this generation". Obviously he/she is talking about consoles. Such unbelievable insecurity on the PC side of gamers, if N4G is anything to go by.
"Crysis 3: Giving Meaning to the FPS"

This is why it sold bad on console. They need more mindless shooting like cod. This game should have been left on pc. Greater things would have come of it.

Most generic shooter this gen.
Tyre  +   612d ago
It is THE LEAST generic shooter of all time, what a trolling comment. You just haven't played the Crysis Series, liar. Definitely the best shooter serie of this gen since 2007, everybody should start playing Crysis 1(digital download on PSN/XBL/Steam or pre-order Crysis 3 & get Crysis 1 for free) or just buy Crysis 3 and play 1 & 2 on a later date.

Crysis 1 was epic because it was open word.
Crysis 2 went another direction and got completely linear, you're trying to say that Crysis 3 is back to its roots?

I didnt think so.

givemeshelter  +   612d ago
Actually Crysis was more linear, however it was more open then most FPS shooters as you could finish certain parts of levels differently. It was linear, however more open then KZ2 and especially KZ3.
MysticStrummer  +   612d ago
Bioshock is much less generic than Crysis
dodo101  +   612d ago
Graphics looks great indeed.
But after what they done with crysis 2 ill skip the 3rd!
JedMan1985  +   612d ago
All these console gamer's are so trapped with-in a world of no site. They think that a console game has better graphics then a "Directx 11" PC game? lol
thehitman  +   612d ago
I heard Dx11 wasnt even working when Crysis2 shipped and most PC gamers dont even have the specs to run Crysis3 at rates that would be huge improvements over consoles. With that said even if the game looks any better doesnt mean it plays better so you shouldnt be trapped with-in a world yourself.
MysticStrummer  +   612d ago
PC gamers compare their games to consoles more than console gamers compare their games to PC. You're trapped in a world where you think better graphics mean a different game altogether. PC versions can be better, BF3 is a perfect example, but it's not mainly because of the visuals.

@thehitman

Where'd you here that?? lol It worked for me on launch day for Crysis 2. Oh maybe it didn't work for CONSOLE!
