The Crysis 3 Interactive Demo Isn’t As Interactive As Some Might Hope…But We Like It

 

Today EA launched its first interactive demo for Crysis 3, no doubt sending fans into a frenzy at mention of the name alone. ‘An interactive demo? This early? Wow, that’s crazy. They must be feeling generous.’

 

Not that generous as it turns out, because this is no playable demo: instead it’s a choose your own adventure-style interactive video that branches at a certain point according to your suggestion (stealth or action, in this case). While this may have caused a few people to spit blood (mainly those that thought EA meant ‘full’ demo), on the whole it’s a neat idea, and one that handily showcases the various powers available to the player without overwhelming them.

 

EA isn’t the only one in on the act, with Bethesda also demonstrating Dishonored in this fashion. Start of a trend, or marketing fad? Who cares: what’s more interesting to us is how the ‘stealth’ and ‘action’ options don’t actually seem that different.  Check it out below.
