"There's just too much in Crysis 3. The first two games were wonderfully lean, giving you a limited, indelible tool set to learn and a cohesive, immediate landscape to use it in. This third entry is really loose and rattly. Graphics wise, it's shinier than anything from the Crysis series or, perhaps even, anything from all of videogaming so far. But that's not enough to carry the game. Crysis 3 is gorgeous - it's magnificent to look at.
"Whether you're seeing irises flicker in character's eyes, tracking aliens as they scurry through long grass or just standing back and breathing in one of the game's many, beautiful panoramic views, Crysis 3 sets the benchmark for what seventh-generation consoles can produce. It's just a shame that technology isn't being applied to better ideas and a better script."
