3.0 out of 5 stars Over rated, 18 Dec 2007

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Crysis (PC DVD) (Computer Game)
I can't help but feel this game is over rated. Now i know some people are saying the first half is good and the 2nd half is not so good but for me the first half felt like i was playing Far Cry all over again and as much as i enjoyed that game i was expecting something different. The setting is almost identical to Far Cry (lush tropical island etc, whoooooo)and all thats changed is the uniform (heck even the voice actors are the same ones used in Far Cry!) It all feels to familiar. The story is pretty weak and the voice acting is less than convincing so you never really get drawn in. (best voice acting go's to Gears of War for me) Another issue i have is that you seem to spend too long fighting against the Korean army and it starts to get a bit annoying as your waiting for the game to surprise you in some way and show you someting different, give you a thrill with some ingenuity, but unfortunately it never happens. I felt the game was all by the numbers and offered nothing new which is really disappointing. There is fun to be had here but its all a bit run of the mill. Anyone who hasnt played Half Life 2 or Far Cry will no doubt love it but for anyone who has it offeres nothing new. I would go far as to say that as far as alien fps games go Resistence Fall Of Man on the Playstation 3 is a better experiance offering more variety, more ingenuity, more story (and better voice acting) making for an overall better game. Bottom line, if you need a new game this xmas and are looking for an alternative to COD4 then buy it but don't expect anything you havnt seen before.
