High definition graphics, could have better AI and Physics
on 14 August 2013
Updated review (after completing the game twice):
Crysis 3 has impressive, high resolution and high polygon count graphics, curves and animation are smooth with consistent frame rates.
However, the story line is alright. The use of pre-rendered cinematics at lower resolution is disappointing; it would be preferable to see cinematics computed in real time by the game's graphics engine. Physics are disappointing, especially when compared to games such as Far Cry 3. On the first level (on the ship), grab a box and drop it into the sea: it's passing through the surface of the water as if there is no water, no splash, no floating, nothing. If the developers paid more attention to the story line and the physics, this would be a very special game.
The multiplayer mode is great. Very responsive game play and carefully designed maps provide the ultimate battlefield for futuristic soldiers.
The game is still very much worth buying and playing for its top-class graphics and smooth, consistent gameplay.
