Not what I expected
 
The first half of the game was absolutely incredible. A worthy "successor" to Far Cry by all accounts, and then some...

I wish I could say the same for the latter half. Some of the worst gaming experiences I've ever had, in particular that God awful "Cave" level. Complete toss.

Not to mention the game was far too short, a common complaint with many games nowadays.

Oh well, it IS EA we're talking about :rolleyes:

Yes blame the Publisher, Not the guys who actually MADE the game.

Incorrect, blaim the pusblisher they have more say then delevopers. EA pays their wages and they get what they want, release dates content and time frame. If EA didn't take them over it would still be indevelopment. If EA took over the team doing Duke Nukem for ever, we would have the game years ago. So there are good and bad points but EA just want sales they could not careless about you or me.

Why not? You can just visualise the EA Fat Cats (sic) badgering the Crytek gang:-

"Good work guys on the first 3 or 4 levels at the start of the game. That'll keep them happy. Now hurry up and finish the rest of it"...

Personally i enjoyed Crysis. The first half is like Far Cry and then it get's intense, fast, full of action. It satisfies both the lovers of the scripted action games (the ones that claim COD4 is better than Crysis that haven't even played the damn game) and the fans of the freeform games.

That's what I think happened too.

EA: "Okay guys where are you up to making this Cryshmish game?"
Crytek: "Dunno maybe 75% of the way through."
EA: "Okay well can you finish it off in three weeks?"
Crytek: "Three weeks?!"
EA: "Is there some sort of a problem?"
Crytek: (sighs) "No sir."
EA: "That's my b*tch."

So to meet that deadline Crytek chopped off all the good stuff like the real ending where you get to teleport to Xev and fight a giant baby.

Blame EA for that. That and the holocaust.

Crytek: "Friday?!"
EA: "Yeaaah, is there some sort of a problem here?"
Crytek: (sighs) "No sir."
EA: "Greeeaaat."

I enjoyed the first and second half, I thought the cave level was pretty cool visually.

+1 I liked the different pace of the cave/alienship level after the long and difficult Awakening level. It was relaxing and visually impressive but maybe 5 or 10 minutes too long and the green aliens were a little cheesy but the rest of the level was great. I actually wished they had implemented a little more difficult zero-G enviroment where the Q/E keys wouldn't self-center the player. Sort of how it was done in the old "Descent" games. :)
