This review is from: Crysis 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
The game is stunning in appearance, with every aspect of vision and sound meticulously crafted. The control scheme is also perfect and there is never any significant disconnect between the player's intent and the character's actions. Crysis 3 continues the traditions of its forebears in these regards, pushing a new generation of gaming PCs to their limits. Predictably, this game also suffers from the same weaknesses as earlier entries in the series: a weak plot and few interesting characters. The supporting character Psycho adds a personal touch that has been absent entirely in previous games, but he alone is not enough to compensate for the non-characters that perfunctorally populate the rest of the game.
The bow enhances the stealth element to gameplay, which is consistently good fun, right up until the last couple of missions where stealth ceases to be an option. The final boss fight is a frustrating jump in difficulty. However, since the story is so uncompelling I didn't see any reason to push through and just gave up at that point. The game had given me what I had wanted and I had derived the enjoyment I had expected by that point.
