New York City can't catch a break. In Crysis 2, the city was the battleground as we fought against the alien Ceph and the corrupt CELL organization. But as Crysis 3 quickly proves, New York, along with the rest of the world, is far from safe.

Taking place 24 years after the events of Crysis 2, the game begins by telling us how things have unfolded since. CELL, in its attempt to continue its plan for world domination, captured most of those equipped with the Nanosuit and skinned it from their bodies. One of these victims was Michael "Psycho" Sykes, the protagonist in Crysis Warhead. At the game's outset, Psycho and others help spring Prophet, returning from Crysis 2, from a storage device - sparing him from a fate similar to Psycho's.

The Ceph's intent has always been to eradicate all human life on earth, and while some believed that the aliens were all but wiped out, that wasn't the case. Instead, our protagonists discover the existence of the Alpha Ceph, an overlord of sorts that has opened up a wormhole leading from its home planet, to earth. You, as Prophet, and Psycho now must wage a war to eliminate the alien threat.

I believe it to be the only game that actually requires DirectX 11 to play.
If "requires" means what I think it means, the guy is wrong. A pretty stupid mistake to make.

If that's true then consoles wouldn't be able to run it..

As for the gameplay itself, I became bored with it within 20 mins of playing it, not to mention the many bugs I (and other angry gamers) ran into that forces you to replay levels, if not outright breaking the game.

Your argument is valid... but on PC's this game will not lunch if a DX11 compatible VGA is not installed and running, so therefore this game is limited to DX11 hardware.

Artificial demands and limitations are not requirements per say, they are exactly that, artificial limitations.

What I said referenced what the reviewer said - "the only game" and that's an obvious fabrication. There were other games before that had same "requirement."

Unless he was stating that this is the first game ever that actually requires DX11, which I honestly don't believe it is.

Agree the graphics look awesome in particular the PhysX in the first level (the cloth on the containers) causing a bit of a drop in frame rates around 30 fps but still playable oh High Settings, but the rest stays stable between 45-60 fps.

A.I. need to improve though.
