I am going to anticipate with disappointment as Crysis 2 claimed to be a step forward, but really it seemed more like a step backwards both story wise and graphic wise. I was really hoping to play as Nomad and Psyko in Crysis 2 to go and save Prophet from the alien infested island, instead I was put into the shoes of a complete random in a linear new york city and was only given fragments of what happened to Raptor team right after being cliff hangered in Crysis 1.
This was my exact expectation and reaction when I started playing Crysis 2. After a couple of hours of playing I uninstalled it and never gave it a second thought.

Seconds ago I received an EA mail to PREORDER C3 NOW....

Haha, do they think I will buy before seeing a full review and specially after the *ssf*ck of C2 ?

So far it seems that C3 is a mappack or C2.5

2 sucked , screw 3.

I'm not even thinking about getting 3. 2 was the one of the worst games I have ever played. It's just going to be another multi-platofrm port, that insults the crysis name. I'm not buying. Not even thinking about it.. t^^t Crysis 3.. I wasted 60 bucks on crysis 2.
Even warhead was better.. Hasn't been a good crysis game, since crysis 1 and everyone knows it..

I keep trying to post that on the main Crysis 3 forums, but it also sucks so bad, I can't even log in. I just keep getting the "Timed out" error.
If you can't make a forum run right, idk what to say..

I don't understand why so many people say Crysis 2 is worse than the original game. Yes, the Ceph AI was bad (except for those bloody Pingers!) but the story was so, so much better.
WHAT?! lol.. What story? The story was non-existent. It was filler, spaced so far out, that it went: OK prophet is messed up, ok u got his suit. ok he's dead and now you jump to your death.. It was the worst story EVER.. Hands down, just horrible imo..

i dont think crytek is even the bad guy here Im just not pleased with EA because they are the ones that release it. they pull the strings. i imagine some of the devs are pulling their hair out over EAs demands. i mean they pay for marketing and release it so you know they will only contract what they "think will be a hit" and theirfor have their hands in the story line. imagine if EA got their hands on UT? I would shoot myself and join prophet in Elysium.
