Looks like this one goes back to PC roots and open ended gameplay.

Ahh thats awesome hopefully it turns out an A+ title. I just started playing Crysis 2, bought it last weekend for $10.

still not completely sure on it, but the smart AI sounds good and the level design seems pretty nice.

I immediately notice how much longer the cloak ability now lasts.Article

but he might be comparing it to just Crysis/Warhead in that as well as a few other lines, because he makes reference to suit abilities having their own buttons now, like it wasn't already like that with Crysis 2's potato bag-suit.

The mp beta suit feels pretty much exactly like the C2 suit Only that sprint no longer takes energy and cloak / armor modes uses different energy reserves. My thoughts? It's a further simplification of a system that needed to be more complex like the original.

I'm not even comparing Crysis 3 to the other Crysis games anymore. I'm now going to compare it to Far Cry 3.

Sounds great to me. Hope this ends up being true for the whole game.

Hopefully Crysis 3's story isn't as bad as Far Cry 3's. And please, for the love of god, no QTEs. The boss "fights" in FC3 weren't even fights at all but just QTE FTW.

#19 Posted by Ben-Buja (2767 posts) -

Crysis never had open ended gameplay, nor was it a sandbox game. It just had pretty big levels with invisible barriers everywhere, lots of copy/pasted foliage and clearly defined mission endings. You were also unable to go back from one level to another.

That depends on which is a real Boss fight. The only one I think that was a real Boss fight so far was the giant masked thing. That didn't have too many QTEs until the end of the fight. The others "Boss" fights prior were merely to get them out of the way.

The stories on all the Crysis games were pretty hokey as well. That didn't stop me from liking the games. It's the same with Far Cry 3. The exploration part alone made the game worthwhile for me. I refused to buy a map up to this point because I like searching for interesting stuff on my own.

#23 Posted by DanielDust (15402 posts) -

Looks decent I guess (2nd wonder), they were all good, but I'm shocked, that after 3 games, they still can't create satisfying gun feedback (visual and audio), the most tedious part in Crysis as a series for me was the shooting, it simply is a chore, explosions are great and weapons that cause them, but anything with bullets is absolutely terrible, don't get why it's so hard to make such a basic thing that is the foundation for the genre of the game you try to create.

DAT FOLIAGE.... Which will probably render my PC into a pile of ash and tears. Not gonna bother with the game till there's hardware capable of running it at 2560x1440 with minimum 60fps.

#25 Posted by pelvist (5197 posts) -

If the suit modes function like they did in the first one or there is some kind of option to switch then I may be more interested. The suit functionality is one of the things I hated most about Crysis 2.

#26 Posted by ShimmerMan (4460 posts) -

I think too much of the game looks like Crysis 2.

You could use hot keys in Crysis 1 too. The whole problem i had with Crysis 2s suit functionality is that it was a constant reminder to me that i was playing a dumbed down console game. In armor mode you are pretty much invincible and the whole scheme felt like it was made just to suit a console gamepad, which im pretty sure it actually was.

#33 Posted by Gooeykat (3366 posts) -

It's not just the hot keys, it was combination of the suit functionality. It made sense to have armor mode on by default and combine speed and jumping (although I would have liked to have been able to move faster) and have cloak (well cloak was the same as the original). It just made the gameplay more fluid to be able to have speed and power combined so that you could run and jump and grab onto ledges and move quickly. I even liked the sliding mechan

Edit: oops, my bad armor mode was not on by default. They conly combined power and speed, which I thought was great call.

Yeah I'm probably one of the few that thinks the changes to the suit made in Crysis 2 were for the best, except for the lack of speed. I can see why they removed this and just tied it with the sprint function (for many reasons), but it's something I miss.

#35 Posted by Deadpool-n (489 posts) -

As long as it is better than Crysis 2 and has better AI. I was really disappointed with the story, campaign overall, the amount of glitches, and lag in multiplayer.

I agree. The gameplay in Far Cry 3 was top notch and I still have fun exploring the world. The story however is awful, worse than Crysis 1 and 2 because both major enemies in FC3 you don't actually fight, you just QTE your way to victory. There is no sense of accomplishment.

They should have done boss fights like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. And I want to expect to die at least 3-5 times before I say: "Woo yeah! Finally kicked his a**!" :P

In armor mode you are pretty much invincible and the whole scheme felt like it was made just to suit a console gamepad, which im pretty sure it actually was.

It totally was. I really disliked the suit controls in C2, until the first time I tried plugging it into the TV and playing with a 360 controller. That just felt right. Still prefer the mouse just for the precision, but yeah. The controls were designed from the ground up to be played with a gamepad.

And what I actually hated more about the suit in C2 wasn't the hotkeys, or lack of the wheel (although I really loved that mechanic in Crysis). It was the way that they combined speed and strength into one "power" option. And the armor mode, which should have just been called "tank mode". With crysis 2, your super speed isn't even very fast, and if you don't have power, you can't even go faster than a walk. In crysis 1, you have normal and sprinting speeds, then you can put on "speed" mode, which doesn't drain power all by itself, and makes everything go faster, plus, when in "speed" mode, sprinting (which does drain power) would give you that insanely fast dash, which was awesome. And then the armor. C2 armor mode makes you go stupid slow, and makes you invincible until you run out of power, and drains power even when you're not being hit. Hence, "tank mode". In C1, armor mode was pretty much default. Didn't drain power unless you were being hit, and you would still lose health while being hit, just not as much as if you were out of power, or on another mode. That annoyed the hell out of me.

Eh, when I built it I knew I wasn't going to max everything, but it'll be interesting to see how demanding Crysis 3 will be in 2013 compared to how demanding Crysis 1 was in 2007.
