Does anyone know if the Hunter Edition really does anything for you other than keep you from playing a bit before you unlock everything? Some items indicated "Day 1" access, while others were simply listed. This potentially implies that those features (such as walking silently in hunter mode) are not available without the Hunter Edition or Deluxe Edition.
i5-2500k @ 4.2, MSI 660Ti PE/OC ed. 16gb ram ssd win8; no physx card =( playing @ 1080p
Judging the game from beta really isn't fair, but I understand if it's not worth the money. I didn't get it for the MP so that diminishes the value quite a bit when you just get a 6-8 hour campaign.
thanks for the info. frame rates? I also prefer to play at 1080p.
physx card mostly just sucks up power in my rig. I haven't played (or even had installed) boderlands2 or batman2 in months. i do love physx, but not a big deal at all.
After seven years of SD, I've come to conclude that Slickdealers are protein-powder guzzling, pistol packing, cheap-ass video game nerds.
Kind of, but it's to the point where sometimes I don't notice them even within like 10 feet, that's not really how it's supposed to work. It's supposed to be harder, not nearly impossible to see them. I have noticed that they are easier/harder to see depending on the background, maybe it's just my poor detective skills, other people seem to have a bit of an easier time seeing me.
I get my bundle card today. I'm thinking about selling the Crysis 3 code as I probably won't play it.
I think that is the best option.
If you got the same deal I got with my 7800 series card (you got a 7900 series card wait for it), the code is tied to BOTH Bioshock and Crysis, so if you planned on playing Bioshock, best be prepared to pay for it.
This game is one of the worst multiplayer experiences I have ever had. It is like combining the damage from Medal of Honor with the hit detection of Battlefield 3 on a bad day. This game is SOOOO aggravating when trying to play multiplayer.
It takes 2 or 3 full clips into a person to kill them yet they will turn around and kill you in 2 shots. There is also a horrible delay in sounds so when an enemy shoots you, you will not know until like 5 seconds later. Then you get to watch a killcam where someone shoots you and the sound of their weapon firing will be carried out 2 or 3 seconds past the killcam video.
I REALLLY hope they fix it, but I doubt they will. It is EA and they are a horrible company.
They also use a sound clip from BF3 & stole a gun from Halo lol.
I just logged in to steer people away from this for the same reasons above.
I came late to the Crysis party with Crysis 2 (still haven't played the original) and thought it was awesome. Great graphics, fun gameplay, fast thinking required, etc. It soon became one of my favorite MP games.
Enter Crysis 3.
What a shitetfest. Like gambling, one game is great, most of the others suck. That one great game and experience keeps you coming back to try to capture that feeling this game had the potential to bring. The lag is horrendous (or is it the programming - who knows). I had a MP error tonight, "Corrupt Context." Really?
I've kicked ass on a round and had my kill streak guns disappear...in fact all my guns disappeared including the reticle. I've had to kill people by jumping high and stomping them during that life and killstreak. I've had entire matches with the sound muffled because at one point I went into cloak and it carried throughout the match. The bolded comment of the guy (or gal) above is also a constant theme and problematic theme...almost every one of three matches, maybe every other.
Minor annoyances include auto armor (keeps noob status), the separation of stealth and armor energies, and some perks that aren't as cool. Not as game breaking as the game itself.
In summary, Crysis 2 (my first Crysis experience) was one of the best MP experiences I had in a long time and Crysis 3 rivals that of Brink...no exaggeration - it's so bad that some game types are already a graveyard.
I hate to say this but I wouldn't recommend you buy this with someone else's money. To be fair, I've only played a couple of chapters/acts of the campaign (and thought it was typical awesome Crysis) but this game treats MP as ketchup would treat lobster.
MP fans steer clear.

You are on 360 and have issues too? I thought it might just be PC or something!
I finally put together a little video of some things today and were messed up. Watch the very end a guy takes 4 arrows and still has his armor up! Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfqBPyBXjfg
I forgot to mention, when the host migrates and fails, you lose any and all progress.
Oh and I just got another error, "Protocol Error." I'm done with this game, MP is broken.
