The Beta for Crysis 3 was released a few days ago on Xbox Live. I kind of skipped over the first two games, so I figured I’d give it a whirl. Let’s just say, things did not go well.
Being a rookie to the franchise, I was little overwhelmed jumping straight into the online-only beta. It took me a few rounds to simply grasp the functionality of my power suit. Once I got the hang of it, I had a blast jumping around and grabbing onto ledges like a monkey. Unfortunately, even after mastering the controls, I was still doing pretty horribly. If you want to feel really good about yourself as gamer, check out my sixth, and probably final, match in the Crysis 3 Beta. I should have just entitled this video “Guy Kicking Cars for Ten Minutes.”
Pretty embarrassing huh? I couldn’t even shoot a guy in the back with a shotgun… Overall it was a good experience and there are quite a few things I like about Crysis 3. This isn’t a day-one purchase for me, but I’d love the opportunity to check out some more of this unique shooter.
