PluggedIn - They say clothes make the man. And in the case of Crysis 3, that couldn't be more true. It's not the large-caliber guns, high-tech-laden baddies or low-down grit that separates this franchise from the pack. Those elements are all a part of the equation, but it's the battle-armor nanosuit that makes the difference here.
Way back in the first Crysis game, the special suit was introduced as its soldiering occupant landed on a jungle-filled Philippines island in the year 2020. The hero used his supersuit skills to try to rescue a group of kidnapped scientists that had found some world-changing alien tech. After scads of sneaking, shooting and nuclear bomb-dropping, Crysis 2 slipped a different soldier into that fancy suit and sent him off to battle mercenary CELL agents and reawakened extraterrestrials in New York City.
