I think it looks great. The ONLY thing I think needs improving is the gore, looks like $hit.

I've seen games from 5+ years ago with more realistic gore...

Whats so special? Same old crysis crap. Nothing new. Short game, dead multi play, and full of glitches...this IS EA after all.
This game will be just as boring as the last Crysis console port.
After that last POS i wont buy any more crytecs garbage.

For once, EA is not to blame. Contrary to popular belief, EA doesn't own Crytek. There is a partnership between both companies but EA has no say so in how Crytek develops their games. Crytek is fully to blame for the f*ck up that Crysis 2 was. Which is why I wont hold my breath about this game.

Aye indeed, don't get me wrong, you make a very good point. I was disappointed with Crysis 2 and didn't care for the multiplayer at all but we can all appreciate something that looks great but I know just visuals don't really make a game, the game itself needs to be good, so here's hoping Crysis 3 will be a big improvement over 2 .

EA set a release date for Crysis 2. crytek said they werent ready to release it yet but EA made them. So EA is part to blame.

Agent-A01, do you really think delaying the PC version of a previous PC exclusive would be a good idea, if you were in charge would you of done that?
I wouldn't, as it would be a horrible business decision.

Crysis 2 was mediocre, but it was still better than the first Crysis game(s), and most other FPS's as the genre has been very stale for years now.

Visually this looks great and unlikely to be beaten by any other game in that regard, gameplay wise i'm not all that impressed, but nearly all FPS's are crap now, and 2013 doesn't look like it will be any different, so even mediocre is good.

In a German game? It will never happen.



I'll wait to see what people on the forum think when it is released. Many, many people thought that Crysis was boring at times. Lots of people did not like Crysis 2.

This game won't be has ground breaking has the first one, unfortunately. Graphics will be good but not futuristic like crysis 1. Or like the samaritan tech demo, made with unreal engine. Did you guys get to see that?

well..i played the alpha..and it was a 'pretty' version of CoD..nothing more..nothing was destructable...almost everything was static...same as MWnline...same engine...BF3...spoiled everything If theres no destruction in it...might as well go play CoD instead IMHO. At least they have zombies...

and glass being shot thru doesnt constitute 'destruction' to me....with whatever railgun he was shooting at that point in the video..he should have been able to punch holes thru the 'busstop'...but he couldnt..causethe engine has no clue what 'destruction' is it would seem..at least in my experience...in 2 alpha's...its a pretty big disappointment. and it ran like glass on my system. both Mechwarrior:online and Crysis 3 alpha. So yeah, there ya go...and HD textures shouldnt be an addon...ever. I dunno why EA thinks thats ok....thats like having the paint on a car as an addon aftermarket
Not sure why software companies think they are special.....
