I have a love/hate relationship with the Crysis franchise and developer Crytek. The main love is obvious. The games look slick and have high production values like a AAA title should. My hate is there is SO much potential for these games to be something more and they seem to come slightly short of greatness. While all of the games have been fun in their own right, what stops them from being great is simple. The main cause is how Crysis seems to be content on being a standard Michael Bay type action game when it can be so much more.
