In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL's covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination.

    You are an enhanced super-soldier, the ultimate killing machine developed through nanotechnology, and that fact is fleshed out during gameplay- you can do all the things that you would expect you could do. [April 2013]

    Crytek's last work is an excellent product. Crysis 3 on PC offers an awesome gaming experience, thanks to stunning graphics and a fast paced gameplay.

    On the PC, Crysis 3 is certainly better compared to the console versions, with Cry Engine 3 able to give the game true visual splendor, without asking for exorbitant hardware resources.

    A self-assured but largely unambitious game, content to refine the experience of the previous games in the series without deviating very far from the standard that they set.

    Crysis 3 is stunning to look at, successfully portraying an uneasy partnership of the natural and the artificial. As the story presses on, the conflict deepens and the visuals darken; it's as if you can feel the evil spreading throughout the city. As a piece of technology, Crysis 3 lives up to the series' legacy. As a game, it doesn't reach the same heights.

    Crysis 3 looks stunning and ticks all the right boxes, but the game doesn't do enough to distinguish itself in order to earn the higher marks.

    Crysis 3's campaign disappoints; its story isn't compelling, the storytelling itself doesn't help it, the level design remains an ordinary one, the difficulty is not well-balanced, and overall, there's no real risk taken creatively at any point in it. It's a game of appearances without substance; visually strong, but that's it. The multiplayer kind of saves the deal, most notably thanks to the Hunter mode.

    Being the third entry in this critically acclaimed series it definitely doesn't fail to impress. From the beautiful vistas and solid gun playBeing the third entry in this critically acclaimed series it definitely doesn't fail to impress. From the beautiful vistas and solid gun play this is a worthy entry; however while the game has many strong aspects its only downfall is its lack of anything new to offer and somewhat linear game-play.

    Being only six to seven hours in length and considering there's nothing really new from the previous entry, it could be fair to argue that Crysis 3 feels more like a DLC than a completely new game.

    Still if you enjoyed the previous games than Crysis 3 is worth a play through for fans of the series.
    Just make sure you have a high end pc to truly enjoy all it has to offer.
