When I was playing this level in Crysis yesterday...it seemed really hard and made me think,"This level is so hard, you'd think the game was about to end." And then it did.
But here's the deal, you're character gets in the VTOL (harrier) and evacs but, then says something like going back to the island to "finish the fight".
Hello??!! The aliens were still swarming around! We didn't beat 'em yet!!!
And then it ends. I couldn't accept that.
You Gotta Be Kiddin' Me.
My rumor is that it didn't end, and there will be a sequel.
