WOW! Surprising...??

Kotaku stated the XBox 360 version is the worst version to get:

"On a related note, the Xbox 360 version of Crysis 3 is a big step down from its PC big brother. I played an hour or so of the 360 version just to see how it compares, and the difference is remarkable. It's still plenty okay-looking for a console game, but it doesn't move all that well. It's too busy for the Xbox's native resolution, and the jaggies and low-res textures make everything look muddy. Not only is the game lower resolution and lacking any of the DirectX 11 particle-porn the PC version so regularly smears onto your screen, the Xbox version's framerate is quite sluggish, which makes it less pleasant to play."

The quote you gave compared the 360 version to the PC. It says nothing of the PS3 version.

360 can't do particle-porn.

@ JWK

If something was bad about the PS3 version, I'm sure they wouldn't have left it out of the article and not said anything. This isn't a conspiracy/cover-up by them like you might think.

From the article:

"What I played: Completed the single-player story in around 6-7 hours, replayed several hours' worth of levels on various difficulties. Played a couple hours of multiplayer and a couple hours of the Xbox 360 version. Replayed several chunks of Crysis 2 for comparison."

He didn't even play the PS3 version for the review. He mainly played the PC and "a couple hours of the XBox 360 version." Your title fails.

No, no, you keep it, I insist.

I think if the ps3 was compared at all it would be mentioned one way or another.

Crytek always talks about how they're pushing consoles more than anyone, but Crysis 2 ran fairly poor and ran sub-HD resolution.

And on PC they look great, but you still have a fairly average FPS with a ho-hum story.

They're overrated.

I would take Crysis 2 or 3 over any recent COD game though any day.

The WiiU version also wasn't mentioned in the review. Obviously it's the best one!

I thought Crysis 2 on the 360 looked fantastic. And not just because it was Crysis, but because it really looked fantastic.

What?!?! The 360 and PS3 which don't support DX11 have none of the features which are DX11 exclusive?!?!

Flop confirmed!

Keji,

Have you played Crysis 3 yet or are you planning to?

this is going to be a long week... I feel the rise of the sonymites

I don't have any plans to pick it up any time soon. I didn't care for my time spent with Crysis 2 and I got that one right after launch at full price. I'm gonna wait for the price to come down before I jump in. If I hadn't just picked up Colonial Marines for $50 this might be an easier sell but I'm not up for two (potentially) disappointing titles back to back.

@ Keji, what possessed you to pick up Aliens over Crysis 3? Everyone knew Aliens was going to bomb. smh

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 4:01:25 PM PST
Because Crysis 2 was a huge step down from Crysis 1, I got to preview Colonial Marines earlier this month and rather enjoyed it, and I've been looking forward to it for some time.

Oh yea and I form my own opinions.

Just saying I played most Aliens games, I too also had high hopes for it since I heard Gearbox was helping out, but we all know how that turned out.

"I too also had high hopes for it since I heard Gearbox was helping out, but we all know how that turned out."

But no one knew how this game would turn out. That's pretty much the crux of the issue.

Considering most of the AvP games have been slammed in reviews before I figured it was a case of that again. I had fun with the title but it didn't meet the hype.

Wow.

We all knew Greg had a Sony bias and that's fine. However, this attempt to mislead people is about as slimy as it gets. I think he earned his Sonymite stripes.
