Will get when the price drops. Didn't like very much Crysis 2. Maybe it's meant to be played on high end PC though.
Jobesy  +   520d ago
I feel the same, never even finished Crysis 2, got too boring. Also it has nothing to do with playing on a high end pc. It will look better, but a crap game is still a crap game.

I love the series yet I didn't even like Crysis 2. This one, however, is wonderful. It's fantastic.
x5exotic  +   520d ago
I'll buy this game when the price drops to the point where they pay me to buy it.

I picked it up from red box today. Its meh at best. I don't k ow what it is but it was boring. Played a couple hours before turning it off. Funny thing is I think 2 looked better. Aside from good lighting its blurry and really low res. The entire first level on the ship looked bad. Every yellow railing was a jaggy mess.

I know this prob looks sweet on PC but my ps3 copy was blah. We are seriously in need of a new console. I'm pumped for tom.

Yup Yup, watch the real reviews clown the ppl who say this game is great, blinded by GFX.
WarThunder  +   520d ago
Sorry I don't use "reviews" other's people opinion to show me what game should i play, i use my own opinion... and From what i have seen gameplay video on Youtube, i think Crysis 3 is a great game. Graphics look fantastic, Gameplay is solid, it feels better than most shooter "COD, Battlefield, Halo etc)

If you like useing reviews more than ur own opinion then you are not a gamer ur just a troll and a loser...

So what? I'm supposed to go out and play every game that comes out and make up my own mind? Sit through video of someone else playing the game and try to figure out if that's how I would play it, and enjoy it? Go..."ooh! That's pretty. I should buy!" I don't know what fantasy world this is, but I don't live in it. My gaming time and my gaming money are both precious to me and in short supply. I rely on trusted game reviews to help me not waste my time or money. Watching gameplay videos on youtube doesn't tell me squat compared to someone who's job it is to play an entire game and provide an informed opinion.

There's nothing wrong with listening to reviewers you trust or who's likes and dislikes you've found match your own. I never make a game purchase unless I've at least considered my review sources. Too many games, too little time.

@darkride66, pffff

I enjoyed games that got 5-6 scores more than games that got 9-10 scores and this says a lot....
if some "opinion/review" said the game is not good, that does not mean its not good for you or for anyone else....
Because "pro reviews" i missed a lot of great game like Warhawk, Vanquish, Folklore... if i go with what "pro reviews" say, i should say COD is the best game. I wasted my money on Halo 3 because of the high review scores it got...

Saying a game sucks because of some reviews/opinions without playing the game, this shows how stupid that person is.

Those so called "pro reviews" don't have a better opinion then your own opinion.

Don't excuse yourself to me for not reading reviews, cause i don't care.
But you should, because you bought a mediocre title, bored much maybe?

Now...saying its better then Battlefield just blows you right to the shit list when it come's to rationality son.

"I enjoyed games that got 5-6 scores more than games that got 9-10 scores and this says a lot."

To me it says you have no standards. In my 30 years of playing videogames, the general rule of thumb is if a game see's a bunch of 5 review scores, there's reasons for it. That's not to say there isn't fun to be had with some of these games, but is it going to be as great an experience as a game that's getting 8's and 9's? Probably not.

But hey, for some reason they keep making Scary Movie sequels. Justin Bieber is a huge hit. As is Nickleback and Britney Spears. Millions like them, just as your bound to find some games that you like among the 5's and 6's.

No where did I say game reviewer opinions are any more valid than yours or mine. In fact, I specifically stated I don't just trust any reviewer. After years I find those that match my specific tastes and use those to help me make informed purchasing decisions.

If you want to go play mediocre games and find fun in them, more power to you. If you like them, that's what's important, but don't insult the millions who like to make informed decisions just because you'll play whatever's thrown in front of you. If you can't make a point without insulting anyone who doesn't agree with you right out of the gate...it's time to rethink your point.
jetlian  +   520d ago
your opinion is no different than his dark. A few journalist have no more say than anybody else. If he likes it he likes it.

Titanic and avatar both sucked as movies yet they are the highest grossing movies. His standards are just different than yours.

This looks better than c1 and c2 to me. Im liking the bow... Electric and explosions too. Alien weapons and forest are a bonus

The game lacks a real story and characters that gamers could give a damn about
kwyjibo  +   520d ago
So did the original though, and that was never a problem because the gameplay was great.

Sadly, it looks like they've not improved on it.
Campy da Camper  +   519d ago
Exactly. The game is forgettable. Unless u play on PC for eye candy this is a waste if you spent 60 bones. Glad I red boxed it. Going back tom

crysis 1 is the best
EbeneezerGoode  +   520d ago
Yeah Crysis 1 and warhead had weak story/characters for sure but they DID have gameplay, new style gameplay that felt exciting and empowering... along with stunning graphics.

I have to reserve judgement on C3 as I won't be able to play it for sometime (on PC) but if it's more like C2 than C1 then I already know it will be disappointing compared to the original.

Seriously Crysis 1 is a sublime game and warhead (though more linear) isn't bad either.

Crytek should have stuck with PC only and focussed their strengths there. They are doing nobody any favours by spreading themselves so thinly (except making more money but pleasing less people)
lovegames718  +   520d ago
Games like these are so generic and boring i dont even think twice about buying them. I bought Crysis 2 because of the hype and some good reviews but i was completely let down. I probably played it in total 7 hours.
Ashunderfire86  +   520d ago
I disgree with gamespot on this one, because sometimes if you read between the lines you can see the bias in many of their reviews. Even though Halo 4(Gamespot 9.0) for example was a good game, I thought it deserves a 8.5, because they ignore the fact that the last levels were too repetitive with that stupid quick time event boss fight. Plus I did not like how 343 split the multiplayer maps into small pieces for each mode. For example, the 4 Vs 4 team deathmatch mode, felt like I was playing just 3 maps in a demo over and over again(It just got boring). Crysis 2 and 3 will open all maps for all modes. Crysis 3 has Free For all out the box!!! I'm talking to you 343!!! When are you going to put Free for all in Halo 4? Those are my many questions to Halo 4.

I don't know about you guys but I am giving this game a chance.

because you didn't like halo 4, crysis 3 is a great game? yep, I don't get it.
Ashunderfire86  +   520d ago
I still like Halo 4, just pointing out the problems many of these reviewers failed to mention, and just give it a high score for the heck of being Halo. I am well aware that 343 is updating the playlist, but limiting maps to certain playlist is a bad idea. Now you know what I am saying? Can you dig it? I like both games, but say Crysis 3 got it right this time for multiplayer and singleplayer.

I'm glad the opinion of the majority seems to be shifting against these kinds of games. I can't help but think a few years ago this type of game would've been a huge hyped up release but these days most people seem to be sick of these macho douche shooters and they barely make any impact. If you like this kind of thing fair play to you, I'm not judging, I'm just glad that more and more people are getting sick of the same old macho generic shooters and that it's starting to show in the industry. Hopefully this means even the companies that just want to make a quick buck will have to start bringing back some creativity.
Tyre  +   520d ago
U got the wrong idea if u say these 'type' of games with Crysis in one sentence. Crysis is the exception when it comes to FPS genre. Crysis gameplay is what u make of it urself, it has nothing to do with macho BS...it's about replay value & strategy, apparently Gamespot doesn't get that either. Anyways i will judge for myself when i play it. It is a shame when the trollers will succeed in preventing people to try this game out. It seems Crysis gets the same CoD hate directed towards it & that is unjustified! It deserves more than CoD cause it is a fresh FPS. If u love FPSs U GOT TO TRY THIS GAME! No joke.

I agree! At least try it! There are so many ways u can try this game if you like it go buy it...
Campy da Camper  +   519d ago
The last Deus Ex beats out crysis 3 bigtime. THAT game had great gameplay with good graphics, stellar audio and music and a great story. You could run n gun, stealth, whatever.
NateCole  +   520d ago
PC sellouts.
NorthernOracle  +   517d ago
Maybe I'm so much of a sucker for top end production values that I'm able to ignore serious gameplay faults. If a game's supposed to be empowering, then I don't really care if it's too easy. That bow sure is fun to use. Good write-up.
