I don't know about you, but I find the Crysis
series hard to follow.
Why? Well, the first game started an Asian island, the North Korean army, and then turns into a fight against aliens. That part I get. The second game does a short Time Skip
three years ahead to New York City. In that game, you fight against the aliens (now called the Ceph) and a private military contractor group called Crynet Enforcement & Local Logistics ("CELL").
Okay, now this third game does a big Time Skip of 24 years after the second game, and it takes place in New York City once again. This time around, CELL has quarantined the entire city in a giant dome, and you can bet that it's not for a good reason. Apparently, you play as Prophet, who has business to settle with CELL.
Let me just say that I liked playing as Nomad from the first game, and I thought it was terrible that you not only don't play as him again, but the second game pretty much treats him like he never existed or mattered in the first place. That just comes off as mean-spirited!
Still, all three games do have one thing in common...Prophet. That guy is Bad Ass
and it seems nothing can stop him. But I have to ask...is the guy Alcatraz, Prophet or both by the third game? That just seems confusing!
