So more info is coming out about Crysis 3 due in early 2013, but I'd thought I'd share my experience with the game in Crysis 1 and 2:

Single Player Game:

Crysis 1 was an impressive game. The open but linear game flow, the beautiful vistas, tank warfare and VTol (flying) warfare, vehicles, rockets, swimming and so much made the single player so much fun it was easy to play it over and over. They took their time to bring you into the battle and made ever bit of the experience a growing one. The aliens flew around, there was zero gravity in one section with things you to see you couldn't imagine. Awesome.

Crysis Warhead was not anywhere as enjoyable as it seemed like a series of battles and not much more.

Crysis 2: For some reason in Crysis 2 they put the aliens on the ground instead of flying. The game was much less 'open/linear' and more just linear 'path,' there was a lot of jumping from one area of the city to another that really wasn't seamless. There were more 'characters' that reminded me of Half-Life series of games. Scenery was very good but I have found there weren't really any levels I really wanted to play over again, unlike Crysis 1. There was a monotonous feel to the game play, where there would be a set number of enemy that you would basically have to sneak around and kill one at a time in order to proceed, to yet another set of enemy in a new location. In Crysis 2 you essentially game alone, whereas in Crysis 1 you were on a couple of occasions gaming with soldiers on your own side (even though there were a couple of scenes that had soldiers on your side you didn't feel like they meant anything to the battle).

Multiplayer Experiences:

Crysis 1: Pretty fair in most aspects... nice variety of maps and abilities with plenty to do 'taking bases.' I can't say Crysis 1 was my favorite multiplayer experience of all time but it held it's own. Crysis 2 on the other hand seemed to take all the bad things about Crysis 1 and combine them with smaller maps I think in an attempt to duplicate the popularity of MW2 map sizes instead of focusing on it's own track record of what was good/bad and improving upon it. Crysis Warhead multiplayer failed to launch (via Steam) so I have no experience.

SandBox:

The Sandbox (a free program that comes with the game where you can make your own maps using all the assets of the game, or import your own assets) in Crysis 1 was fantastic, large maps with wonderful level of detail at even long distances (like 1 mile away you could still see trees) but in Crysis 2 the sandbox was dumbed down a bit so it would work with xbox and PS2 gamers. I'm still in the air as to which is the better program, not totally sure if there are work arounds for the level of detail in Sandbox for Crysis 2.

Summary:

I bring these issues up because Crysis series has so much potential, but imo has the problem of developers who simply borrow whatever they think is popular, like elements from Quake, Marathon, Half-Life series, MW2 and so on. I'm also not a fan of the nano suit. I do like the animations of it but the whole concept tries to make you into superman (yet another reference).

I guess we'll see if Crysis 3 sells out more towards copying other games or somehow finds it's own core. Initally they say they're combining the city and jungle into one (reminds me of Portal 2) so 'that' isn't too encouraging.

For your money, definitely buy Crysis 1, it was an awesome single player experience with plenty of repeated game play - it was great. Walking through the interior of an aircraft carrier with people who do talk to you if you walk up to them, being able to look around or even move around during cut scenes, and despite the fact you have to fight off a 'big boss' (like in Quake) at the end, at least the game has a start, developing middle and end, like a real and engaging story.

Looks very detailed, but a lonesome warrior?
