Crytek founder Cevat Yerli believes Crysis 3 is the series' best iteration yet."It is better than Crysis 2. It is better than Crysis 1. Technical and creatively, and storytelling – all aspects."
Crysis 3 has shot to the top of the UK games chart, despite middling reviews scores. Yerli believes it is natural for a third iteration to receive a harder time from the press.
"After researching, Crytek found about 20 games that we analysed that got hammered, sequels or three-quels, where number two, number three, or number four got significantly lower ratings than the previous iterations."
"The relative impact that Crysis 3 has created is lower than what Crysis 1 did. But I would think at any level it's better than Crysis 2, and it's certainly still better than Crysis 1. People remember Crysis 1 much bigger than it was, because it had a high impact."
Does Yerli have a point? Has Crysis 3 done enough to change the tried and tested formula up? Let us know your thoughts.
