Just call me a black sheep, but until I played this third entry in the Crysis series it never really clicked for me. While the stealth tech was cool and there was fun to be had in specific moments, for me the balance and feel of the action was always just a bit off. However, with the third entry throwing in a bow and seemingly tweaking how long you can maintain stealth just a little to make it more accommodating to silent killer types? Count me as being on board. Right out of the gate the flow simply felt more in tune with my preferred style of play, and I instantly went from appreciating the game’s merit to actively enjoying it. Now, having talked to fans of the series as a whole, the common comment on this third entry is that it’s a shorter overall campaign than its predecessors, so that’s something to take into consideration if you’re buying ala carte versus the package deal of the Crysis Remastered Trilogy. With its feel and flow being more closely aligned with the likes of the Far Cry series overall I really did have a blast with this third chapter. If you’re on the fence about the series though I’d say read up from as many sources as possible, as I can see significant room for disagreement on which title is the best in the series.
