Is Crysis 3 worth $40

Crysis 3 is on sale this week for $40 and was wondering if it is worth buying for that price.

It's not worth that, the campaign is decent but downhill compared to Crysis 2 and only takes about 3 hours to complete on any difficulty. The multiplayer is decent but full of bugs, some of the achievements are also glitched. They did just bring out a patch, but didn't fix any of the important issues.

I love the campaign. Took me 7 hours to beat on first play through, with me taking my time and checking for intel so forth. Great story, looks great, and is just fun.

Better than 2's campaign by far. Shorter, but stronger.

Youre going to get mixed reviews here on the forums about the game, especially its campaign. B A R 4 D and aspeedomodel being perfect examples. Your best bet is renting it or biting the bullet and buying it. If you buy, beat it and don't like the multiplayer, you can always get SOME of your money back by trading it into places.

x360a gave it an 80, which in my book puts me right on the tip of the fence between buying and renting. Because the multiplayer wasn't a fav of mine in Crysis 2, I think I'll find time to simply rent it...

Just ordered it ($40 on Amazon). Loved Crysis 2's single player.. the multiplayer was decent, but nothing to call home about. But for $40, if I don't like it, I'll just max it out, and eBay it.. no worries.

3hrs is bullshit, sure MAYBE if your 100% steath the entire game and dont seek any collectables but even that would be pushing it. My first play on normal took between 7-8hrs completing all optional objectives and actually trying to find the collectables. The game is pretty sweet and its worth that price.

You could fight every enemy with guns, do every secondary objective, collect all intel, die quite a few times on say.. veteran and it still wouldn't take 7 hours. I played through he game four times already and my play time is 12 hours something.

Nah, not even 100% stealth. Collectibles aside, I finished it in 3.6 hours on SS and I didn't kill a single soul on Missions 3 or 7. For other missions, I just ran through sections with Armor activated and I did just fine. I died maybe like a total of 5 times on my SS run. 3/5 in Mission 1 lol.

OT: I think it's worth $40 for sure! I liked the Campaign a lot.

Guys not for nothing but if your saying your literally running through levels fully armored or cloaked, and disregarding most confrontations no shit the campaign is 4 hours long. I'm not saying it wasn't short I ran through on Vet and kept an eye open for intel not going out of my way but also enjoying the games atmosphere and taking out the enemies and I got about 6-7 hrs out of the SP. I do wish it was as long as 2 but oh well thems are the breaks.

OP also disregard the SS glitch it's only effecting a small amount of users, plus if the game is so short why not clear your save and just run through it for SS? sounds easy to me..

You all seem to be implying that running through firefights or stealthing through them is the incorrect way to play. It's not. Crysis games are designed, FUNDAMENTALLY, to allow you to tackle the situation in any way you want. If you like to kill every enemy then you can, but you don't have to. That's the beauty of it.

Don't get ants in your pants simply because your way is longer.

I remember you telling me it was short. I'll still rent it though just because I really liked Crysis 2.

Nah this is definitely worth playing especially if you did enjoy Crysis 2, just saying this isn't worth 30-40 for the hours you get out of it, so rent is definitely best option even if you want to 1000 it.

I wasn't trying to say there was a right or wrong way to play, it just sounded like a few people on here were saying how easy it was to just cloak 'n crawl through the game. Making play time very short and not worth $40, Which is fine but your also inherently avoiding confrontation making the game much shorter. To each their own and I do agree it was sadly shorter than crysis 2 but what the game did, it did well.

if I had known then what I know now... I would not have bought it at full price.
I would probably have gotten it pre-owned, even...

I want a game that has more re-play value...
(like Dead Space 3, which I've been playing since release and still find new stuff to do in).

+1 to ninja tactics! Just did a Crysis 2 pacifist run (only against Cell), and let me say, it was a very different experience from my first rambo playthrough. Some of the parts were actually more difficult and took longer, especially the vehicle run (had to hoof it in cloak through the checkpoints). Only killed that douchebag Cell leader guy and the scripted human parachute when I jumped out of the window of the apartment (is that a spoiler?).

What's also funny is that in the dialogue, they kept saying that I wiped out dozens of squads of their buddies! I was very hurt after all the trouble I took to save all of them, even protecting them from the Ceph sometimes. No respect...

The multiplayer can be fun and the Campaign was enjoyable, but really short and super easy, even on Supersoldier difficulty. Thre are way too many glitches, including one that crashed my console after killing the final boss.

My final verdict. Don't waste your money. I regret buying it!

I, too, am upset that I didn't get to pay $40 for it: the multiplayer is filled with the same problems as the second game, and while the SP was nowhere near as entertaining as the second one, I still enjoyed it. It wasn't a total waste of money. Got about 835GS on the game - going to let myself suffice with 800GS+ from now on so I can play more games - and plan on trading it in soon.

Anytime time and speed come into a campaign people get all weird about being above/below par.
