If you’re a crysis fan , or even a hard core gamer for that matter , you definitely must’ve been following the 7 wonders of crysis 3 over the course of the past three weeks. This high octane shooter has proved its graphical capabilities when yhey demoed the game at E3 last year . The one in question here is the CryEngine 3. And these episodes merely stand as evidence to my claim.Well the 3rd and the 4th wondrous episodes ‘Cause and Effect’ and ‘Typhoon’ are incredible and we can safely say that Albert Hughes , who’s been directing these episodes is doing an incredible job. Check out the first and second episode now , if you haven’t already.
Episode 3 : ‘Cause and Effect’ explores the source of power of the CELL corporation and then takes us on an awesome backtrack of your firefight with enemy. You can see the protagonist take down a helicopter with his bazooka , raid the camp and shoot down enemies with his infamous, ubiquitous and futuristic bow . Once again , the graphics are an absolute stunner.
Episode 4 : ‘ Typhoon ‘ details the futuristic machine – fish gun of the same name , and then heads on to some live action gameplay. You can see him go invisible , use a flamethrower and take down enemies by jumping on them too. The machine gun’s bullets are incredibly detailed. On a lighter note , do you notice how accurately the player shoots down his opponents ?
In other news , the makers of Crysis have revealed that their game will be so graphically demanding that it will use up 99% of the processing power of your XBOX 360/PS3. They’ve also released the recommended PC specifications ( and boy are they demanding ! ) . They say that the game will look much better on the PC due to the enhanced processing power .
