** CELL has a huge amount of pull with the US government to the point that they essentially own portions of Congress. They successfully managed to prevent the President from deploying US military forces to Manhattan for sometime through political maneuvering. Combine that with a government (and likely CELL) enforced media blackout it could be quite easy for them to censor out parts of the Manhattan occupation that they don't want anyone to know about. Plus the world has turned pretty crapsack. According to the novelization, the state of the world is so bad that execution of diseased citizens has become the norm.
* Why does Prophet's flashbacks in Crysis 2 show him standing on the deck of the carrier headed toward Lingshan when the beginning of the first game shows them being air-dropped in by a C-5 Galaxy.

* How did CELL not only survive the events of the second game when there would be thousands of witnesses to their illegal acts including executing citizens and US military personnel along with losing a considerable amount of assets, but instead grow in power and influence to the point they could buy the United States Marine Corps from the goverment and rule the world?

** Psycho also might have gotten upgrades or modifications from Prophet, which could have improved the suit's functionality. We also don't know what the "skinning" process entailed. Given that Psycho still had, well, skin afterwards, it might have included having his suit forcible regrow assimilated biomass.

**** From the second game, when a new user is connected to the Nanosuit, the Nanosuit has to integrate the DNA of the owner so the immunological system doesn't try to destroy the nanites for being foreign/extrange bodies. That also implies why (1 The Nanosuit from Alcatraz took a while to assimilate his ADN (the time it took for the Nanosuit to turn on) and (2 the various "Integrating ADN/System Overrides", trying to teach how to use the Suit modes but also to replace/upgrade some of the functions from the owner (the Visor and the Nanovision modes as examples). From what I know there are also some alloys that aren't recognized by the immune system (you can investigate from the Georgi Markov assassination from the KGB in 1978) as extrange bodies so it doesn't try to "repel" it.


Added DiffLines:

**** I think there should be a "Do not nuke the aliens, it doesn't work" troope/rule. If we are so utterly advanced, how those aliens coulnd't found way to defeat the inmense power of a Nuclear explosion? If we found how to make Nuclear bombs from Plutonium and Uranium almost 70 years ago. How a various thousands (or even millions) of years old race with space-traveling abilities couldn't found how to A) defend from radation (In the space is even worse than on the earth) B) Defend against explosions (like there aren't Supernovas, and even minor -but still capable of destroying our planet- explosions on space) and C) How to gather energy from their sourroundings on whatever planet they were. If you combine atleast B and C you get free energy and the line "hey, you can't take us that easy and even less in one strike"


Added DiffLines:

** From what I understood his name appears on one of the flashbacks from Prophet, specifically in the "Lab Rat" level after the "deep layers buffer scan", His name is James, and if I remember correctly one of the post-Crysis 2 books states that is full name is James 'Alcatraz' Rodriguez (obviously Alcatraz being is his codename on ground).

* Bit of a meta problem: at the end of ''Crysis 2'' Prophet says to Alcatraz "we don't get to die yet." We. Plural. Just as Prophet was denied death by BrainUploading, Alcatraz is being denied death by Prophet himself. Then comes ''Crysis 3''; Alcatraz is gone. Oblivion. [[ForgottenFallenFriend Not mentioned once]]... why? [[hottip:*:Made even worse because ''2'' made a big point about how you're no longer human, you're POST-human. You can't get much more post-human than two tactical operators and a state-of-the-art computer working in tandem in a single fighting unit... I guess what I'm saying is TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot]]

** ''Crysis: Escalation'' gives us the story of how Prophet's mind ended up in control of the body. [[{{Tearjerker}} It's pretty depressing.]]

\n\n**Also, the way Lingshan was frozen in the first game is also explained. The Ceph aren't actually native to any kind of freezing-cold environment. The ice itself is a byproduct of the Ceph initiating a massive absorption of energy to power their systems during the Stage One colonization process. The Ceph themselves aren't adapted to surviving in the cold - or at least, they're no more adapted to surviving in the cold than they are in any other environment.

** The suits seem to work their "dead man walking" thing based on the physical damage to the wielder. Prophet's suit also seemed to have been affected by close contact with the Ceph themselves. Psycho probably had both limited Ceph contact and didn't suffer the kind of catastrophic physical damage that would require the suit to totally rebuild his body to turn him into a wetware CPU driving a mass of synthetic nanotech in humanoid shape.

* I can't help but feel that there was far too big of a TimeSkip between Crysis 2 and 3. The second game hammered home the point that everyone who put on a Nanosuit was a DeadManWalking but the intel files you can find in 3 indicate that Psycho wasn't even skinned out of his suit until 2045. Even if we assume that Crysis 1 was the very first time he started using the suit (in 2020), that means Psycho's had the suit for at least 25 years. If he's a DeadManWalking the suit sure takes its sweet time turning him into one.
