Crysis 3 Review: It has lots of graphics | BitBag

Crysis 3, the latest installment in Crytek’s long running first person shooter series where you run around in a nanosuit that lets you cloak, be impervious to damage, leap strategically placed high walls in a single bound and run like Bolt. One other thing it has, GRAPHICS! And lots of them.

Pretty sad that the only thing anyone can remember from this series is "OMG GRAPHICS"... I have a computer that can run it on max settings (demo at least) like butter but I refuse to buy this game just because I know how bored I'd be once the rope physics and skin pores lose their appeal, not to mention the base game is still designed around the limitations of the current console gen. My advice is to skip it and wait for EA to discount it down to $10 because that's about what the gameplay and story is worth. Aliens and Suits are too generic nowadays and not even worth commenting on.

The sad part is that technologically speaking it has great graphics but I was actually more impressed with the scenery/graphics in the 7 year old ps3 hardware 720p God of War single player demo than I have been with Crysis 3 in 1080p (highest settings too) running off my pc gaming rig.

Sorry for the run-on sentence ;)

Crytek is all tech.

"Crytek is all tech."

tek = tech? Crytech/Crytek.

Anyway, I agree. Good luck to those who enjoy Crysis. Unfortunately I don't 'get it'. Never really, although I really, really wanted to, as it has epic graphics and I love sci-fi/aliens.

If the game-play was tighter, and they actually had a decent protagonist, with a good story, I think I might be interested again.

I do respect Crytek though for hiring the Darksiders/Vigil games devs.

I agree, after Crysis 2 I would have expected them to do better. Crysis 3 is not much of a game and it's more of a full blown tech demo. I'm just gonna waste money upgrading my pc to play a pretty looking game. Graphics just won't do for me if I don't enjoy playing the game.

PC gamers will remember this game for a long time. They will indeed remember this as the best game on earth because of the GRAPHICs.

TechnicianTed1210d ago (Edited 1210d ago )

No, I will remember X3 on pc for far longer. Because it is a huge game with tons to do and immense re playability, and for the fact that there is nothing else like it on consoles.

That's the game I'll remember.

aquamala1210d ago

you mean like Killzone SF

Skips1210d ago

But people will also remember Killzone for it's solid weighted gameplay, MP, and interesting antagonists.

Same cannot be said for Crysis my friend.

@sonic yea because you've played, it looks like it plays like all the other crappy kz games.

Skips1209d ago (Edited 1209d ago )

^^^ 1886afc

Well, if SF is anything similar to how Killzone 2 and 3 (more similar to 2 though), then it would have a lot more personality than all 3 Crysis combined. Even the first one.

Lol. Crysis 3 was just like 2. Just a mediocre shooter with great visuals, but with meh gameplay, garbage story, horrible writing, atrocious voice acting, life less characters, horrendous AI, and mediocre multiplayer etc. etc.

Jeeez, at least people care about the Helghast and their back story, and also praised Killzone's (specifically KZ 2) multiplayer and unique weighted gameplay. Not to mention the AI in Killzone 2 and 3 (running on 2006 year old hardware lmao) absolutely curbstomps Crysis' horrendous AI.

Unlike Crysis, people actually like Killzone for things that ACTUALLY MAKE A GAME GOOD. Not just visuals.

Crappy? lol No even close buddy.

classic2001209d ago

LOL PC gamers love teh graphics.

multiplayer is a blast, my brother and i just put in 4 hours, lol....its after 2 am now, great fun, hunter mode and crash site are amazing

and on pc, with all settings maxed, still getting 50-80 frames (hint for people having low framerates, disable v-sync!! it doesnt tear, but gave me around 20 extra frames!)

it honestly looks better than anything will on next gen consoles, its amazing looking!! Runs smooth, awesome weapons, tons of maps, deep custimization

great game, single player seems pretty cool, but so far only an hour in, but with over 10 hours total in mp, i can say its awesome!!

"it honestly looks better than anything will on next gen consoles"

I must be missing something. Or a lot of somethings. I'll go see a doctor.

pandehz1210d ago

Anyone whining prolly never played them.

Crysis 3 gunplay is so dam smooth and refined. The bow feels right. Every weapon feels great.

The graphics is just a super bonus to such open combat style shootouts.

Drainage1210d ago

the MP is really fun but everyone sucks at it so they quit and go back to n4g to say all it has is graphics
