Top of the charts
Over here in England Crysis 3 takes a rightful first place for the top 20 UK charts for the week ending February 23, beating fellow competitors which include Aliens: Colonial Marines, Dead Space 3 and Assassin’s Creed III.
This game is set to wow us with its graphics, however as always the graphics you see before you while playing alter depending upon if you are playing this on an Xbox 360 or PC. Do not let this put you off though – the entire Crysis series is know for its amazing graphics and this is no exception.
For a brief insight into the story-line of this game visit – https://pwnersmanual.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/dates-for-your-geek-calendar/ In my ‘dates for your geek calendar’ post Crysis 3 most certainly has had a mention there!
As expected the graphics are visually stunning, however do not expect a great story line. Developer Crytek has worked unbelievably hard to continue with the amazing graphics and to wow us further, however perhaps they could have afforded to spend a little longer on developing the story line. Despite this, the reviews do talk about graphics so if you want to play a game in which graphics are practically unbeatable then this is for you.
Combat is slick and dynamic which of course is vital for a lot of video games, and finally Crytek have introduced a Tactical Bow to Prophet’s armor alongside his Nanosuit which featured in the video games prior. The tactical bow really does bring a certain something to this game along with a huge benefit for all the fighting. Other weapons include, Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle and Sub-Machine Gun.
Personally I like how this game allows for you to also explore places and encourages you to do so. It also features an impressive multi-player. With a total of 64 Cell Intel Collectibles in Crysis 3, or as Crysis 3 fans will understand 38 Datapads, 20 Blackboxes, 6 Propaganda Posters, i’m determined to find them all…or probably just some!
Due to the graphics this game gets an overall rating of 8.5.
