Call of duty in a suit,
This review is from: Crysis 3 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I've played this game for a good hour and I'm just sick of it. The entire thing is nothing more than you following a guy named psycho from room to room, or small outside location, and killing a few bad guys before repeating. If you read my other reviews on the previous crysis series entries, you'll see that I love them(I have the top rated review for crysis 2 on amazon). THIS piece of crap is as linear as cod/moh clones come. I heard from some other friends that the campaign took them only 6 hours, but I honestly can't tolerate another 5 minutes of following a dumb NPC around in a game that is part of a franchise that is known for large, open maps. Good luck with your future endeavors and stupid free-to-play model crytek, I'm guessing I wont be playing anything else that you make.

While I like your general style of review, I question your perspective for what constitutes a one start game. Especially as you gave all of your game reviews, three other games, (the new Aliens, and Dead Space 3) only one star.

I agree that it is possible to know if you like a game or not relatively quickly...I was that way with "Brink"...20 minutes into it and I was done...

I came here to see if what I was seeing was true. It really feels like a linear COD so far. Silly over the top cockney accent NPC (and I'm from East London) and you merely run after the guy and wait for him to open doors for you. This isn't what Crysis 2 was like at all. I'm hoping the first mission is just a warm up and you will no longer have to follow that NPC who just barks profanity at you... but so far that's all it is.
Absolutely no freedom and terrible audio. The sound drops out about every two minutes as well.
I'm so ruddy disappointed at this juncture.

They aren't "the big three" by any measure. All of those companies have been accused of fluffing scores of games with bigger budgets deemed to big to fail.

Well I can tell you that I've reviewed far more than 3 if you look a little harder at my profile. If a game has many bugs, REALLY bad writing and/or voice acting, a weak story, zero innovation, and clearly feels like nothing more than a cash-in, I give it one star. You'll see that I give plenty of higher scores as well for games that really try to do something.

I'm glad you were able to try all aspects of the game. I can tell you are terrible in multiplayer FPS games and decided to ignore it. Good choice. I'm glad you hated it. LOLOLOLOL you wasted your money. LOLOLOLOLOL.
Great game, bad troll Snake.
