A non purchase for me, loved Crysis but Crysis 2 was for me at least a linear pile on console cpmpromise with hideous 'everything is shiny, garish and covered in vaseline' type graphics (which seem so popular these days). Make another Crysis 1 and I'm in, otherwise no thanks.
I like the idea of Crysis 3 but am hoping they carry it closer to what Crysis 1 was like. That game was awesome, biggest tell for me is that I replayed like 4 times using different tactics each run through. The graphics do look good, but as cool as that is, if the game play isn't there than does it really matter? The trailers for Crysis 2 looked ok, but it wasn't until they released the HD texture pack did the game start to look like it should on PC. So it is wait and see for me with this one.
As for Far Cry, oh baby! i am looking forward to that one!!! :D
The original was......well original, good story and great gameplay throughout. When Far Cry 2 was released I was a little disappointed that there was no continuation of the original, besides the name. Once getting into the game though I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the playable world and how the story played out. The series seems to focus on a particular theme rather than a single character that appears in each iteration. The 3rd game of this series looks like it will carry on the legacy of the first 2 nicely.
On a side note, does anyone know if the cry engine is used for any other games?
