Crysis 3 is a solid adventure with plenty of eye candy and will more than satisfy the fan base of the series.

Unfortunately, the more I mindlessly killed, the more I felt less attune with the story and any empathy for Prophet. I found titles such as Far Cry 3, Dead Space 3 and the latest Tomb Raider to be a much more compelling, cinematic experiences.

Parental advice: The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) after watching the Prophet kill hordes of aliens and punctuated by plenty of blood spurting, decided to label this game “M” and that stands for mature — adults 17 years and older need only try to save Earth in Crysis 3. So don’t let your 12–year-old convince you that “it’s like Robocop meets ‘Falling Skies’ and ya get to wipe out a bunch of nasty aliens.” The game highlights plenty of crumpled bodies of humans that will also cry out in pain and aliens exploding into a mass of blue goo.
