    Crysis 3

    What Crysis 2 should have been... overall a solid casual FPS. Well worth playing.

    The hype the developer put out about this game is pretty much all true. Visually this is everything Crysis 2 SHOULD have been. The AA really makes a difference, and even compared to the hi-res/DX11 version of Crysis ... Read Full Review
