Playing as a dead man walking has never been this fun

>The graphics are absolutely stunning. For a game that massive, i was expecting super-mario 64 graphics or some stuffs can have worse detailing than others. I was wrong. Really wrong. Everything is in absolutely detailed graphics. But by that, i started to turn my head towards another problem. They probably have sacrificed something for graphics that amazing.
>Characters. Your character, Alcatraz, is your usual first person shooter character, the silent one. Appears like nothing but dead man walking in a weird looking suit. But let's turn our attention to the other supporting casts. Gould, the old bloke i forgot who, and others. They are the cheese to the grilled cheese sandwich.
>The Nanosuit. Without it you would be like, well, normal humans. The suit's reassemble the look of muscles. Making a normal human after all harder, better, faster and stronger. Unfortunately, it has quite some minus sides [well, everything has it's ups and downs. But this is a military suit, should be made for perfection] While it could went 'Houdini' and deflects explosives, it's battery power might let itself down. It's been countless times that i've been sneaking around in stealth mode, only to see 'Low Battery', and automatically uncloaked in the middle of many alien foes. Bloody Hell.... It's like Iron Man, but with a bit less reliable battery system, a stealth mode, and.. It doesn't fly. Or fire lasers. Or Flame proof. But i bet this suit can be proven useful while playing hide and seek.
>Sound effects, OSTs and voice acting. It's simply amazing. Gunshots, alien ships and everything.
>Bloody long campaign. While some games have noticeably 'i could finish this in 4 hours straight' Crysis have a very long campaign mode. Which is good if you only have the singleplayer to play.
>Balanced enemies. Unlike A CERTAIN GAME [I am watching you, Halo: Reach] the enemies aren't packed with overpowered weapons. Even the bigger ones. [NOTE: I am talking about the easy mode. Turn it up higher and things can be a LOT different]
Now the bad bits.
>Guns could've been more varied.
>Little glitches around the campaign.
>Damn right stupid A.I. Some of them move around in circles.
>Could have been more vehicle sections.
>Scanning the battleground for enemies can get boring. Really, really boring.
But these cons are minor. Nothing compared to the stronger plus sides. It's like one very small wound in your body, and it doesn't get any worse. Sorta like the man Alcatraz himself. Except he got bigger wounds. And inside of some sorta life support machine that can run. jump. Kick, punch and almost anything but talk.
