Ooh! A thread I can contribute on!
Hi Head-fi community. I play Crysis 3. I used to play Crysis 2 extensively and competitively, and can comment on that as well, but since Crysis 3 is the current iteration, I'll stick to that. First of all, I play on the PC and I will talk about strictly the MP. In it's current state, the MP community is very niche and tight nit. Finding a server to play on daily is never really a problem but the game is no where near modern warfare levels of popularity. The game, much like it's predecessors, rewards accuracy a whole lot. It does that by having a higher than average time-to-kill, and having a high % damage increase for upper body/head shot modifiers. The pace of the game is....gloriously fast. Since C2, they made a few changes to the nano suit to make it easier to use (ugh, that's a different story) but also FASTER! The game smacks of quake (in terms of pace and weapon pick ups). Heck, Q3 champion Toxjc (Fa7al1ty dethroner) even plays C3 (and played Crysis 2 as well!). There are still bugs and aspects to be worked on. Since Crysis 2, the dev support has took a turn for the better. The devs have released numerous patches/balances and added features such as spectator which makes casting tournaments a whole lot easier. We're using the feature on a competitive scale for the first time ever this coming saturday for a death match tournament (that I get to cast, yippee!). All in all it's my favorite current - generation FPS. I wish more people played it and saw the value of it. It's like a hybrid between an arena shooter and a more current game like COD. You should check it out! If you're at all curious of some gameplay, check out my YT channel: http://www.youtube.com/sdubist
