So, I've been playing some Crysis multiplayer. It's pretty good, better than I'd anticipated. It still suffers from a lot of the problems you'd expect, but at least in multiplayer the weakness of the suit ( like everything you do requiring energy ) makes some sort of half-assed sense.
Thing is, the majority of players I've met don't seem to understand the need to balance your suit energy. Most people will just stay in stealth while roaming around, meaning that when they get into a firefight, they have no energy to put up armor and can't hope to survive an even fight. I normally prefer stealth, but my approach so far has been to forget about stealth completely, and using armor mode almost exclusively. It's working quite well so far. It does feel a little weak, because I still find myself losing fights I have no business losing, but that probably has more to do with me being new at it, and headshots doing immense damage.
I do wish there'd been some sort of objective-based mode, though, like in Battlefield. I think that would've made it a lot more interesting.
That said, there should be at least a few hours of entertainment in this, and ... hey, I'm not one to complain about entertainment.
