    This thread is for those that will be playing Crysis 3. We all know that since Crysis that the games since has not met our (mine) expectations. With that said I am willing to be open minded and give it another chance:)

    I did play Crysis 2 MP for almost a year and enjoyed it quite a bit. I am really hoping that Crysis 3 will take us back to the time when a game really pushed the limits of our high-end rigs.

    Right now I am preloading Crysis 3:

    I tried the multiplayer beta. It was pretty fun and it ran well on 5850 crossfire. Scaling was really good!

    In my opinion Crysis 2 single player was very good. :)

    Crysis 2 SP was alright in my opinion; however it lacked the open-world environment of Crysis.

    No idea but it's delayed releases that kind of fuel impatient piracy. I don't partake in it myself but i know people that argue that they refuse to wait 'x' days when there is no legit reason for it to be delayed across the globe.

    I am very much looking forward to Crysis 3. It's a sequel so it will never match the expectations of Crysis but I genuinely believe Crytek took the stinging criticisms of Crysis 2 to heart.

    Or am i just being deluded?

    I got a valentine card from the wife that said, "Good for one Crysis 3 purchase"... lol I"m in like flint! :toast: Only thing is I'm in the middle of Far Cry 3.. I'm thinking about holding off until I finish FC3... and that's only because I want it on steam.. and I hope after a couple of weeks they put it on steam.

    EDIT: I'll be picking up a new graphics card at the end of the week or next... So, far I'm either getting a HD7970 or a GTX680 4gb.. :toast:

    I have to agree, I like Crysis 2 a lot. To me game play wise it was better than Crysis, just not graphic wise. I liked the suit better in c2 as well. The only think I would change on the 2nd one was the strength and how you had to long press to punch stuff.. In the 1st one I changed the ini file and turned everything up and I could punch a car across the map.... lol

    The original Crysis was amazing. It had some flaws related to pacing, but it was a well put together game that was almost entirely unique in its time.

    Crysis 2 was incorrectly named. It should have been linear corridor shooter 8619. There was no incentive for exploration (collectibles that serve no purpose aren't a reason to explore), dozens of invisible walls, and buggy as hell for the first two months (I can't say any more than that, because I gave up at that point). The promised improvements from dx11 came to the party way too late, and the Halo visual cues could only be missed if you were blind and deaf.


    Crysis 3 promises to be better. It promises unique and free roaming gameplay. It promises to be PC first. I'm too jaded to believe a word of this. Show me the game, and then I can believe. Anything short of that, and I'll pick up Crysis 3 in the bargain bin in 6 months. Of course, I'd love to be surprised. Unfortunately, game after game has continued to disappoint me. Maybe when EA finally lets Steam have a crack at 3 I will be able to give a damn.....maybe.....




    Edit:
    To put this in perspective, let's look at Best Buy. In 2010 I was looking for a copy of Crysis to run on my new (read: not a piece of crap) rig. A copy of the game, and the two semi-sequels, ran $50 at Best Buy. A three year old copy, with ostensibly a small content addition, was the cost of a full price game.

    I pre-purchased Crysis 2. I had a coupon that made it the same price as the aforementioned Crysis pack. In 9 months (the same calendar year) I saw the game on shelves for $20. It was even cheaper ($10) online. If that doesn't tell you how people received the game then I don't know what will.

    I thought Crysis and Warhead were better than Crysis 2. The main reason being Crysis 2's walking Ceph are just boring and unchallenging AI. To make matters worse several battles are capped off with the suit doing everything in a cutscene.

    The CELL troops weren't very challenging either. I ended up beating the game on Post Human Warrior with no armor, cloak or suppression my last play through, and it wasn't even that hard. The Ceph are a bit cartoonish and the CELL moronic.

    I kinda lost interest in the story in Crysis 2, after seeing the evolution of the Ceph become dumb and mechanical vs dark and mysterious. I just hope this one brings it challenge wise, because that's about all there is left to hope for.

    I was so disappointed with Crysis 2 I'm passing on 3, just to spite them for 2.

    I got mine for £12 a month after release, retail copy. Most game prices go down after just a month or two; except COD games that's it :laugh:

    I don't think that's ever going to happen, might as well quit waiting. Just like BF3 and Mass Effect 3, this will be an Origin exclusive.

    Congrats on getting a new card!

    Crysis 1 MP > Crysis 2 MP
    Crysis 1 SP > Crysis 2 SP
    Nomad > Alcatraz

    Given up on Crysis 3 mp not unless they return Vehicles, 32 player and huge maps.

    Hopefully, the sp experience will deliver.

    Yea, I would believe that if they didn't put crysis, crysis warhead, and crysis2 back on steam. I know I'll still have to use origins and that's not the reason why I'm waiting. I'm waiting because I feel steam has better networking features (friends list, chat, etc..). Oh and don't get me wrong I'm not one of those I won't buy it unless it's on steam. I'm debating on getting a HD7970 or a MSI GTX680 Lighting... If I get the HD7970 then Crysis 3 will come free.. but I really want physx and don't want to hassel with adding another card for physis if I get a HD7970.. I don't know... I've got a GT240 I can put in for physis if need be.

    Played a little bit of the SP and I have to say that I am impressed with the graphics so far!
    I am playing with two HD 7970's in Crossfire with no issues so far. I have everything maxed out and Motion BLur disabled. Game feels and looks great to me. Textures are amazing:)
    Haven't played MP yet with this release, but I will soon...

    Anyone else getting this?:

    http://answers.ea.com/t5/Crysis-3/I...ing-from-the-Games-library/m-p/531708#U531708


    also these:

    http://answers.ea.com/t5/Crysis-3/Crysis-3-quot-This-code-has-already-been-used-quot/td-p/531354

    I understand that it would show up on release date for our region but they should've at least let us pre-install it from the disc. I have the physical disc and all, but can't even install the effin thing because key redeem code is placed at the start of the installation wizard and it keeps stating that the key is already used.. and the only options are re-enter another key or exit. Crappy Origin should just burn.

    Also, another thing here is that the answers.ea service is down.. how very convenient. Its as if they wanted to halt the influx of these posts and make it look like few people are having these issues.

    EDIT:
    Ok, they just resolved the issue: http://answers.ea.com/t5/Crysis-3/Crysis-3-gone-from-my-game-list/m-p/532988#M2146
