Crysis 3: Lost Island Found

The Crysis 3 website announces the release of the Lost Island DLC for Crysis 3, which takes Crytek's shooter series back to its tropical island roots. The add-on should be available worldwide as of today, and here's word:
Crysis 3 players can now take aim in an exciting new setting thanks to the arrival of our Crysis 3: The Lost Island DLC expansion pack. Featuring new multiplayer maps and game modes, and two brand new weapons, the DLC invites players to return to the scene of the original Crysis by taking up arms on a remote tropical island off the coast of Lingshan.

Available in the US from today (June 4) and the rest of the world tomorrow (June 5), The Lost Island DLC invites players to compete on the new Ascent, Coastline, Creek and Crossing multiplayer maps; trying their hand at the new ‘Frenzy’ and ‘Possession’ game modes at the same time.

Frenzy adds a new dimension to deathmatch, with a weapon loadout that cycles every 60 seconds keeping tension high as players can only respawn during the next loadout change. An intensifying radar sweep keeps track of every move. Only the most skilful Hunter will win.

In Possession, players secure the single objective flag for the longest time in order to win, but once the flag is secured they become the hunted, permanently tagged in the enemies HUD. Possession also boasts a team based variant, where co-ordination and teamwork will ensure victory.

noted, thanks! I had heard that both 2 and 3 were lacking a bit...I just hadn't looked into it at all. My backlog of games to play is just ridiculous at the moment.
Ditto. I just don't have time to play games so I stopped buying and downloading demos and betas. If it is one of those free weekends, then I will try to check them out but that usually fails. Haha. Damn, I am old.

Still haven't completed Crysis 3 nor Crysis 2 for that matter. Does Crysis 3 get any better further in? Currently maybe 3 hours in and it is rather ho-hum. I miss the open jungles of the original Crysis.
I still haven't finished Crysis 1!

I was big on Crysis3 though I never finished either 1 or 2 (that's a famous failing of mine, being a self-professed hardcore gamer, I almost never finish the games I play...having said that, I managed to finish 3 games this year so far, so maybe I'm getting better at it ). Once I got it, however and saw how badly it scaled on my aging HD5770, having to put most things on 'LOW' was a major disappointment for me, I put it aside for a while. Just last month I picked up an XFX HD7850 on sale and so first, I tried to play some Crysis3. While it ran much better (still not at the highest levels - no, you'd need a fuckin' CRAY for that, apparently), I got about half-way through (I think, *MINOR SPOILER* when Psycho finds out his 'girlfriend' was the one that 'skinned' him) and it crashed to desktop, just like that. No error, nothing, I was watching and then the next second I was staring at my desktop. So I said 'Fuck it!' and I haven't played it since...

So...yeah.

While loving Crysis 1.... 2 feel flat and 3 just felt like more of the same. The bow helped for an hour, but then yea it just wasn't that fun. I basically had to force myself to play through the last 2 hours just to finish the game. Once I finished 2 it was uninstalled. 3 took a few days until I realized I had no urge to go back for anything SP or MP. Watch a let's play if you care about the story, otherwise pass.

I still haven't bought Crysis 2, let alone Crysis 3. No idea why, I loved the first one. Just haven't gotten around to it.

Does it have Blood Dragons?

I think this is an extremely important question that needs answering!

I doubt it gets better. Crysis 1 was designed as a PC game, first and foremost. The others are designed as console games, with all the limitations that you're gonna get with 8 year old tech; e.g. levels are small and linear because there isn't enough memory for decent-sized levels.
