Why isn't crysis 3 being as hyped as crysis 2 was?

Game releases in a couple weeks and it isn't even top 10

The Crysis games are kinda "meh", really. Crysis 2 was only hyped for it's engine, but the whole game itself was very forgettable, and in the end, that counts a lot more then any fancy tech.

Just like Rage.

And they can't actually pump out the graphics on the Xbox360 compared to the PC.
So crysis 2and 3 look similar.

Because when Crysis 2 came out everyone who played multiplayer realized it was just more of the same. Where the single player looked really great it wasn't the selling point of the game. People just didn't care about it.

I mean sure I'll be buying C3 for the single player but having played the amazingly boring multiplayer I've no interest in the online part of the game.

probably because crysis 3 looks like a big add-on.

Because Crysis 2 was dumb, and they know that with this knowledge most people won't bother with the 3rd one.

LOL that you guys think Crysis 2 is in the same boat as Rage and Brink.
