How does Crysis 3 campaign length compare to 2?

Is it about the same or did they shorten it?

Anyone?

Well, picked it up on my lunch break. No instructions! Not even a half assed insert claiming I saved a bunch of trees or anything.

This should hardly be a surprise. They've been phasing out instruction manuals for years now, and some games have been shipping with nothing at all for months now.

However, isn't this an EA game? Shouldn't there be an online pass or something?

There is a Hunter pass if you got the hunters edition from GameStop... Other than that piece of paper and the useless 90 day warranty paper, there is little else but case, disk and cover...

No on-line pass required! Game only came with one code for some "hunter edition" MP stuff but that's it.

Just to add, the game does have a digital manual in the main menu section, which is surprisingly decent given the current nature of manuals in general. It covers everything briefly enough so that you know all you need to.

According to the GameTrailers review, the campaign is the shortest of the series at around 6 hours. But they said still gave the game a 9 saying the short campaign isn't a big deal b/c it's a very good campaign with lots of variety. I don't like Crysis so all I can say objectively is what I've heard from other places.

That's disappointing . I really dug how big the campaign in 2 was. Oh well, I always say quality of quantity. I'll see it for myself in a few hours.

They did say that the campaign is far less linear and has much more open space to explore than the Crysis 2 campaign.
