Review Quickies Vol. 7: Crysis & Shin-Ou-Ken

Crysis (PS3)
+ very nice visuals
+ excellent sound design
+ all weapons are fun and highly satisfying to use
+ weapon customization is great
+ nanosuit powers are largely very useful
– story and characters are forgettable
– alien ship area is unlike the rest of the game: disorienting and confusing
– feels like it is largely a different game after you directly encounter the aliens: goes from an open, military shooter to a much less good extremely linear sci-fi shooter

RATING: 5 out of 6 / 8.0 out of 10

Shin-Ou-Ken (SAT)
+ decent music
+ good chain combo system
+ fairly good animation
– ugly pre-rendered sprites and backgrounds
– small roster of 8 characters
– counter system can be abused potentially leading to stalemates

RATING: 4 out of 6 / 7.0 out of 10
