E3 Preview: Crysis 3

Prophet becomes the hunter.

Sounds interesting. Of course, being Crysis, everyone's going to jump to see how the game looks. I'm wondering if the PC version will be more in line with the original, in that it will be at the bleeding edge of graphical prowess, or whether the multiplatform release will rule out those sorts of visuals.

Advice to live by.

25 years after Crysis 2? What the hell are those guys at Crytek smoking? I want some. Story transition from Crysis 1 to Crysis 2 made almost no sense. This one seems to make no sense at all.

Don't you mean we take on the role of Alcatraz, only possessed by the ghost of Crysis past?

Wait wait wait. I only played through half of Crysis 2 so maybe I missed something at the end, but didn't Prophet die at the beginning of 2? Also, what ever happened to Nomad? Feel free to spoil it for me.

There is a comic out that tries to bridge the two but it none the less feels forced.

OT: If this game is any bit as linear as Crysis 2 compared to Crysis then I am giving it a total pass.

So Don Bluth's A Troll in Central Park is a prequel to Crysis 3? Interesting.

Alcatraz gets taken over by Prophet's memories and starts to think he's Prophet.

Ahh, that's weird. Still, a way more interesting plot twist than I was expecting. Did they never explain what happened to Nomad?

Got blown up with a rocket meant for Prophet in the comic.

Really? Shit, that sucks. That's like Niko Bellic having a heart attack only mentioned on the back of the box of GTA V. And you play as Roman.

Apparently, it's a comic that explains what happened to Nomad and the short version of that is that he is dead

A classic case of Death by Bridge

Unlike some posters, I revel in my linearity. You can all do those mmorpgs and fancy Skyrims but I want my railroading and would take that any day of the week. This gives you freedom of how to meet each objective, which is great in any game.

Yes, yes he did. At the end of Crysis 2, Alcatraz absorbs the remnants of Prophet left in the suit and takes the name Prophet. It's never really made clear whether or not Alcatraz still exists, but my take on it is that Alcatraz just got Prophets memories and called himself Prophet to honor the man.

Presumably, that's who we'll play as in Crysis 3.

Crytek's tendency to start plotlines and then lose interest, never properly finishing them off is starting to bug me. They did this with the whole shock-frost thing, and now they're skipping right past the juicy bits of Crysis 2. Someone ought to tell them that we want to be there for those interesting events, and not just be told about them after the fact.

Still, I'm pretty much sold. I had lots of fun with both previous games, and now they added a compound bow. The Huntsman enthusiast/Hawkeye fanboy in me is giddy with excitement.

Well i loved the first game, somewhat liked the second, but this... I don't know.

I think this will sit comfortably next to Splinter Cell Blacklist in the "buy when cheap," category.

Ok, so I get that Prophet's memories were in the suit and whatnot, that was actually explained in the game. That doesn't magic up a brand new respiratory system for Alcatraz's body though, and it was pretty clearly stated that the suit can't actually heal the injury, just grow into it to keep the body going.

It would have made more sense if Prophet just used the suit to speak for Alcatraz, magic brain takeovers and regenerating lungs are quite a stretch with the information on hand.
