Words will not do the new Crysis 3 game justice, but they will have to suffice as I was unable to take pictures or video of the demo that I was able to play. As previously reported, the game returns to the jungle by turning New York City into a jungle. The graphics, as we have come to expect from Crysis games, are stunning.

Electronic Arts demoed what they were calling "pre-alpha code" but you couldn't tell that by looking at it, save for the message telling you such. Game play was absolutely fabulous except that I was used to Call of Duty. Once I returned to the PC-style gaming, the controls became intuitive and easy-to-use.

I did manage to break the game, however, and I was the first person at E3 to do so. I'm a bit proud of that achievement because it means I played the game in a different way then everybody else. That's the beauty of this upcoming Crysis: the world is incredibly open and the route to objectives is not nearly as defined as in other first-person shooters.

For those of you who enjoyed the original Crysis for the jungle scenery, the new jungle scenery present in New York City is sure to not disappoint. If you preferred the city landscape of Crysis 2, you will not be disappointed as their is still city landscape present in the new Crysis 3. The launch date for Crysis 3 is set to be sometime in February 2013.
