    I hope that you actually get to use the good guns throughout the game. I was kinda annoyed that I ended up using an AK-47 for most of the game with a few spots of the sniper rifle. The limited amount of ammo for the good weapons really made me feel like I was being controlled by the developers and not by my imagination.

      The AK WAS the good gun!

        It was! But I actually liked the SCAR better. both rifles were the most modifiable in the game.

      If you truly want to enjoy Crysis, play it on the hardest difficulty level, and use only your suit as your primary weapon.

      I love sneaking up on enemies in stealth mode, changing to power mode, punching them, turning back to stealth mode and sneaking away before anyone knows what happened.

      glad I wasn't the only one who was bothered by the fact SCAR ammo was so rare.

      also, no fucking alien floating levels this time, for the love of god!
