Disappointing Sales - Crysis 3 PC Has Just Passed 100.000 Sold Copies In Its Homeland

They could never mimic the success of Crysis 1. It had both awesome game play and graphics but the sequels only paid attention to graphics.

gillri1379d ago (Edited 1379d ago )

No Crysis was an average game just like its sequels, a glorified tech demo with bone headed characters, crappy story and generic alien designs. Oh wow it has opended ended gameplay.....yeah so did far Cry 1 2 years earlier

Just because it was ahead of its time graphically does not make it a good game. Crytek following games have only highlighted the fact its not a good game developer

Crysis was anything but an average game. Sure, the story wasn't the best and the characters weren't that great, but the game itself was an amazing, one of a kind experience.

I mean come on, hunting Koreans on a tropical island with real-time weapon modifications, on the fly power mode switching (not the lame, watered down, consolized Nanosuit 2.0 in the newer games), in expansive sandbox levels? Compared to the single player FPS games we have today, Crysis was, and still is a world class shooter.

Admittedly, it does go down hill about 2/3rds of the way through the game when everything becomes focused on the aliens, but the first 5 or 6 levels of the game are absolutely amazing in my opinion.

another COD fanboy. Crysis is one of the best fps this generation by FAR. None have matched it in terms of open world and gameplay.

Crysis 2 was the beginning of the end, it just proves how bad a game can be when you cater people like you, the COD fanboy.

Crysis 2 killed the nano suit, the whole idea behind the great gameplay of Crysis 1 was based around the nano suit freedom which was taken away in 2 and 3 in order to be able to fit a linear world in animations in a 512mb ram limit.

Crytek only have themselves to blame, since you know, it didnt even sell well on consoles.

JsonHenry1379d ago

In my opinion the first Crysis was rather good. Not mind blowing. But good.

Hatsune-Miku1378d ago

hopefully crytek is working on bringing crysis 1, crysis 2 and crysis 3 to the ps4 all at 60fps with 1080p. I'd buy it first day and im sure theyd get way better sales on next gen consoles

Lisica1378d ago

Crysis had a good gameplay. If Far Cry had it before Crysis, that doesn't mean it's bad.

Insane graphics, good gameplay, not bad story.

What else do you need?

I disagree. In fact, I just finished Crysis 3 recently (played the other two as well) and think it's the best out of the three. It plays just so much smoother. Framerate is a little bit of an issue, but still, it was spot on with the gameplay. I never cared much about Crysis multiplayer, though.

malol1378d ago (Edited 1378d ago )

did they count digital sales via origin ?

dont know crysis is not my type of game.

and i hope this is not about showing PC gamers in a negative way.

Knushwood Butt1378d ago

Crysis 1 was broken.

After reading years of PC gamers rant about how great this game was, I was disappointed when I finally got to play it. Armour mode is useless to the point of, were it not even in the game, it would not matter. Instead, you're forced to use stealth mode all the time because if you don't, you're dead.

Plus there's the incredibly dumb thing whereby your energy doesn't drain if you don't move. So, in stealth mode your energy drains continually if you move, but if you stop moving, it doesn't. Er, why?

Whatever, it was disappointing, but I see why it impressed people back in the day. Fact is that the gameplay is average at best.

Knushwood Butt1378d ago

lol

Didn't even mention the broken one hit kill punch move, which is easily the best attack in the game.

Stealth up to enemy > one hit kill punch > charge suit > rinse and repeat.

@Knushwood Butt

You have no right to talk you had no idea how to use the nano suit lol. Crysis nano suit was awesome, sprint quick change to strength, jump over to building punch through the ceiling, quick change to armor and mow down all the enemies inside. You didnt like the powers because you have no imagination on how to use them properly.

Knushwood Butt1378d ago

@awi5951

Sounds good in writing, only you'd be spotted by the enemy immediately after breaking cover, and would be turned to mincemeat with or without the useless armour.

awi59511378d ago

@ Knushwood Butt

Nope you just suck i stalked and killed them like the damn predator you just suck. Stealth kill, sprint away, zoom in head shot, stealth away, sneak up on a guy with strength grab him by the throat and throw him.

Knushwood Butt1377d ago (Edited 1377d ago )

We all know the stealth works; that's my whole point. Stealth and one hit kill punch are easily the best ways to play the game.

Sprinting is useless, and from memory, the enemy is fully capable of shooting at you AND hitting you when you are sprinting, in which case you are dead in seconds.

Armour mode is also useless, because all it does is absorb a few bullets before it's drained, and as soon as it's drained the enemies with their automatic weapons and deadly accuracy are still shooting and hitting you, meaning you are dead in a flash.

Also, in your little plan of attack you failed to mention that your energy would have been long since completely drained, meaning you wouldn't have been able to do half of what you wrote, because you would have had to find cover after a few seconds of using the suit's powers to recharge it. Only, having already been spotted by the enemy, and with them hunting you down, chances are you'd be dead before you even found a good spot to hide and re-charge.

The AI was totally broken too.

The whole game revolves around recharging your suit (kind of weird how it will recharge indefinitely whenever you don't use it. If you have infinite power to do that, why does the suit need to recharge?), and it's tedious. Still, if you think this is great gameplay, then knock yourself out.

awi59511377d ago (Edited 1377d ago )

@Knushwood Butt

Nope you still suck you decloak for a half second and fire and recloak and you dont loose energy. Also sprint was helpful when you combine it with strength to jump into areas you can't usually reach or to close on enemies and meleee the crap out of them.

Also crouching makes energy usage slow down dramatically. There were too many ways to kill enemies i had a blast its a open world game and you just couldnt cut it. You one of the people that says the elder scrolls games are boring because you cant think of anything to do.

Knushwood Butt1377d ago

You still haven't countered the point that you will be instantly spotted, shot at, hit, and likely killed when sprinting anywhere remotely near enemies, and neither armour mode or your supposed god-like gaming skillz are going to change that.

As for open world; not really. More open that your average FPS for sure, but if I wanted open world I'd play Far Cry.

awi59511374d ago (Edited 1374d ago )

@Knushwood Butt

Put your silencer on your gun and aim for the head you nooob. I can clear out the whole map without getting one alert you just suck. And also stealth killing guys you just suck at games the game isnt that hard. Ive killed everyone in a given area with ease, i actually hunt down the eneimes because i want to clear the map i take out all snipers and vehicles you are just bad at crysis.

this game is all visuals, no substance, doesnt deserve praise as a game.

After Crysis 2 failed to live up to expectations on PC, failed to have TEH BEST CONSUL GRFFX (plus a slew of technical issues), and was overall a disappointing game, it's not a surprise to see Crysis 3 fail.

V0LT1379d ago

Crysis seemed like more of a benchmark tool than a game.

GundalfDeGrej1379d ago

The first one was way more than just a benchmark. The last two? I can agree with you there. They aren't BAD games but rather than expanding the experience they tried to streamline it and make it more accessible to more people which rarely ends well.

I don't see how 100 000 sales in ONE country is disappointing though. Sure, it didn't sell as well as the first game but how could it? When the first game came out it was THE game to buy if you wanted to test your PC (I still remember all the "can this pc run crysis?-threads" on various boards).

awi59511378d ago

Crysis 2 and 3 have subpar graphics compared to the first one. Its obvious they were playing to the console because the graphics where not ground breaking like the first crysis. You can clearly tell they were hold back to make sure a console version of the lvls and graphics could be made. The texture detail was muddy at best even with a 2 and 3 card rig. It was nothing like the first crysis at all. They kept the detail and beauty of the graphics down so they could be downscaled for console and made the pc game look like a crap id tech game.
