Crytek CEO defends Crysis 3, tries to explain low scores
Oh Crytek, if only you listened to criticism.
Crytek CEO has called Crysis 3 a masterpiece and expressed bewilderment at negative reviews. He also attempted to explain why the game wasn’t rated that high and believes it is a better game than Crysis and Crysis 2.
We reviewed the PC version of the game and found it lacking compared to the previous games in the series, and the game ended up being quite polarizing.
“The relative impact that Crysis 3 has created is lower than what Crysis 1 did. But I would think at any level it’s better than Crysis 2, and it’s certainly still better than Crysis 1. People remember Crysis 1 much bigger than it was, because it had a high impact,” he told Gamasutra.
“The markets are down. People’s expectations are much more radical than the current generation of games are doing. I think the new generation of consoles will reinvigorate that and help to elevate that again, and elevate new concepts of gaming which old platforms are right now limiting, too.
“The consoles are eight year old devices. Of course, in one way or another, they will limit you. It’s impossible not to be limited by a limited console. By definition it’s the case. So if it were PC only, could we have done more things? Certainly, yes. Could we have afforded a budget to make a game like Crysis 3 PC only? No. People have to understand that this is a journey of give and take.”
Yerli doesn’t seem to understand what the market wants according to me, but he should have gotten that signal with Crysis 2 itself.
