About Crysis 3

Crysis 3 takes place in the year 2047 in New York City, which has now become encased in a Nanodome and turned into an urban rain forest. Players assume the role of returning hero Prophet, who embarks on a mission of revenge after discovering the true intentions of Cell Corporation's reasoning behind creating the Nanodomes.

A devolution from open-world brilliance and a far cry from compelling, Crysis 3 is a serviceable sci-fi shooter with noteworthy multiplayer and a story that just barely warrants attention.
