I'd be willing to bet that the save times do not take into account reloading and replaying times after dying. Add about another 1.5hrs for about ~10.5hrs of true gameplay time. This was on Hard btw.

The game really totally changes at about the 1/2 way point once you enter the Core. By about 3/4 way through I really started to miss the jungle guerrilla fighting and encampments. We never got back to my pretty tropical jungle.

Hardly any gameplay was done specifically using the beautiful water which was disappointing. I longed for more fond memories like the River level in FarCry being so amazing being on the water nearly the whole time but it never happened.

The later levels were much more linear than the earlier levels.

Story is short but interesting. Obvious there will be Crysis2.
Totally agree. I really wish that the game was more about fighting the Koreans than just a quick blind date with the aliens. The story line made it seem like the aliens were pretty weak and not that smart at all. I'd rather Crysis go about fighting the Koreans a little longer and then have Crysis 2 for the alien attack. The Core was alright, my expectations for that was higher.
