Bow reminds me of Turok. After Crysis2 i'll avoid Crysis 3, especially if its set in the city again and dumbed down for consoles.

Yes, but the original still shits on Crysis 2 in that aspect

I agree the original was bomb! Let's hope they have analyzed where and why they went wrong.

For me, this is what killed it:

Strike One: Launching the game with DX9 only (remember that crysis had become synonymous with uber graphics)

Strike Two: Compromising the gameplay and technology in order to get higher profits due to having it on more platforms (Think crysis. Volumetric/3D skybox, realtime cutscenes, awesome suit gameplay. Think Crysis 2, static 2d skyboxes, pre-rendered cutscenes, corridoor shooter syndrome)

Strike Three: Claiming it would be the original Crysis and better. It wasn't.

I pre-ordered that turd of a game. I played the beta (multiplayer) and thought "surely the singleplayer won't be like this" - how wrong I was...

I've snorted Parker Quink and sneezed onto a notepad and come up with stories more coherent than Crysis 2.

I didn't mind the environment in Crysis 2, it was the linearity of it that sucked. And all the things mentioned above with the dumbing down of it for a console market.

I would love to see them do something similar to STALKER in terms of the world. If it's a completely flattened/destroyed New York City, that could make for some really snazzy environments.

But due to this, we can only dream.
