I though dead space 3 was the worst one... or am I conflating with F3AR?
Both are accurate, if you ask me.
FEAR 3 -> FEAR 3 is the worst one by a mile. That series has been going downhill more and more since the original. FEAR 3 isn't terrible - but it certainly ain't good, either. It's just...okay. FEAR 3 doesn't feel like FEAR anymore - it feels more like a COD game. It lacks the horror elements that made FEAR 1 and 2 what they were. But, to make matters worse, FEAR 1 + 2 did a really good job w/ story-telling & characters - while FEAR 3 doesn't do a hell of lot w/ the these things.
Dead Space 3 -> While this may be the worst game in the Dead Space series, it's still a pretty damn good one. Yes, Dead Space 3 (default difficulty) is WAY more action-y, more straight-forward, and way less horrific than the previous two games - that still shouldn't stop you from playing it. The production values, story-telling, characters, and action are still awesome here. Sure, it's a bit different and less horrific compared to previous games - but still awesome. A different kind of awesome. The gun-crafting system is awesome - as since enemies pretty much litter you w/ ammo, items, and stuff; you can build whatever mixtures and kind of guns you can for primary and secondary attacks; and mod them up from there, too. Dead Space 3 is still a damn good game, unlike FEAR 3. If you bought it for $1 in the Origin HB - know that it's a bloody steal at that price.
I'm just now looking at the Metacritic reviews for Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3. Seems the critics mostly liked them, but user reviews are mixed. Are there fans of either game here who would be kind enough to comment?
C3 feels a lot like C2. C3 can be played in a much stealthier manner than ever before, now w/ the new bow at your disposal.
While C2 was very vertical more so than open in terms of space - space-wise, C3 feels a bit more wide-open. C3 tries to combine the City Atmosphere of C2 and lush environments you saw in C1. Personally, I really liked C3 - it basically combines a lot of elements of both C1 and C2. I should note - I've liked ALL of the Crysis games on the SP, since the original. The stories & dialogue have never been anything that great and this flaw continues in C3 - I don't think it's one of Crytek's specialties. If you liked any of the earlier Crysis games, you like shooters, and you got a bad-ass PC that can run these technically gorgeous games - by all means, play 'em.
