Crysis 3: Impressions

So I got Crysis 3 on Xbox 360 a while back and my in game statistics show that I've played for about 3 hours which is sufficient for giving you an impression of the game since,according to the reviews,it's half the game's entire length! So far I've found much to like about Crysis 3 both in terms of gameplay and visuals.
Crysis 3 is quite the looker. With great lighting effects and textures on every surface in the game you feel submerged in the game's world which's design itself is pretty astounding with vegetation covering New York's skyscrapers and streets.The first time you enter the city you will be stunned by the visuals and spend a few minutes just admiring the game's beauty. The most beautiful thing in Crysis,visually speaking, is it's grass which is extremely realistic and an example of how far game visuals have come.Each blade of grass brushes aside when you are walking or in this case sneaking through a field of grass. Crysis 3 is really one of the prettiest games of this generation. The water effects are also fantastic and really pull you into the game considering many of the levels of this game have streams or ( Yes ) dams you have to swim or wade through. The facial animations are also pretty detailed and help in conveying the emotions of the in game characters which are also quite likeable.
But enough about the visuals let's focus on the what really matters in a game: How it plays. I've really come to like Crysis 3 in this aspect as I am doing a stealthy playthrough and stealth is extremely satisfying thanks to the new weapon the game introduces : The Bow. Now, some reviews have said that the bow is overpowered and I can't help but agree since it can literally one hit kill most enemies in the game and you never run out of ammunition since you can retrieve your fired arrows but the thing is the bow is pretty........AWESOME because it is immensely satisfying to take down a group of enemies in a matter of seconds in which you are repeatedly firing arrows like some sort of badass Robin Hood. Other than this weapon the gameplay stays fresh because of the powers your character is given. You can become invisible, jump like Jordan, kick cars and be bulletproof. These powers all require energy which regenerates when a power is not being used. These abilities allow for a host of different approaches to a certain level and they really make the player feel empowered which is something players love to feel.
Let me sum my impressions up by saying this game is a must play for stealth lovers and generally people who love open ended and empowering games like Dishonored and Far Cry 3.
Thank you for reading! ( This is my first blog apart from the introductory one and I'm sorry for it being pictureless as the internet speed here in Pakistan is quite enraging ( we do not get over 100Kbps ) and it takes quite a while to upload an image)
