I'm not even half way and I feel it already
Contact and Rescue were the best missions, although some of rescue was meh.

I'm worried at this point, they showed us huge potential with the first two missions :/

oh and night missions in general suck

Well I got done with 2 missions, and so far it's an ok game. I read some reviews and I (personally) think this game is much overhyped as the gaming revolution on the PC the mags said it would be. It's just an ok game with nice graphics. Hopefully I will have enough motivation to finish this game. I couldn't get through Bioshock 75% through because it became a chore.

Im about almost half way through now (I think, dunno how many levels are there.) And the game sure doesnt feel like another far cry execpt the part where you're at the harbour. Honestly the game doesnt feel tedious, so far at least. Every level you always get into a different environment and once in a while some surprises pop up just when you need it. My only huge gripe so far is the amount of bugs and glitches in the game, not to mention the system requirements. There were more than expected. Hopefully crytek releases that patch soon.

I enjoyed the game from start to finish, personally think it was more than worth the money. My only major gripe is I wanted to go back after the final battle and get prophet.

Missions are great otherwise and there is lots of variety, using run and gun, sabotage, tank driving, air craft flying, alien bashing and the alien level is just freaky surreal.

I'm only upto the tank battle, but I gotta say that mountain is one hell of a set piece. I'm loving it so far, getting better and better.

I think the game is awesome. What are you guys expecting? Lower your expectations and enjoy the freaking game. I hope people who havent played it dont read this thread.

Exact opposite here. This game gets better and better as it goes on. Fantastic variety of missions. Have had at least a good dozen 'OMG!' or 'WOW!' moments which most games rarely do. AI is not perfect but it is one the best I've seen in any SP shooter. They do react to dead bodies. Flares are constantly being sent off with more backup troops arriving. The CoD'esque level is top notch with chaos all over. Story is a bit thin but I never expect much from any game on story. Sounds are simply amazing. Hair on my neck stood up and I was so tense and freaked out in a certain spoiler scene; I won't ruin for anyone. Suit powers are great and turn this game from simply FarCry2 to a totally great game.

WTF more do you people want? This game is a 10/10 if there ever was one.

Crysis is GOTD contender for sure.

i thought the game was really getting better and better until the alien ship. Then indeed it did feel very rushed and linear. I'll probably still give it another play-through though..

Because it was linear . I liked that last part, too. The core level was ok but only for one time.

I just got past that last night. I feel the game gets better as I go. The beginning and first couple missions were quite boring and there was no reasl story driving it. The perrformance is seriously the Achilles heal of this game. I really wish I could play with AA on and still get 60 -70 fps like all the other games that have just came out.


And scripting like in COD4 is fine with me. I don't mind scripting when it's well done and gameplay is exciting.. take me for the ride!
