2. Crysis 3
Crysis 3 offers a return to the open-world environments of the original Crysis, which had been discarded for a much more linear experience in its sequel. Though the sequel wasn't a bad game, it was maligned for its lack of open-ended maps and close-quarters battles—which were two elements that no fan of the Far Cry and Crysis series ever expected to see in the game. Rather than making a Call of Duty clone, Crytek intends to take the series back to its roots and deliver an open-world environment—in this case, a New York City overrun by jungle. Taking on the role of Prophet once again, players will stalk through a variety of terrain with a host of armaments at their disposal, including a powerful composite bow, where they'll have to face Cell mercenary operatives and intelligent aliens alike.
