guys plz don't bash a guy for his opinion calling him a nobody because it is true, the far cry 3 online mode loks boring and will be a ghosttown because they are releasing after COD and halo the multiplayer won't stand a chance he will be dead in a month.
i rather don't have sidemissions where you get teleported it ruins the feeling you are really there. Its the same for missions. They way you had missions in far cry 2 was just good.
And clearly they don't seem to know anything about the game , this could explain why they don't really understand the commentary about the game and why they are so negative.
I just think its fun enough like far cry 2 so i have no worries. We all have our own opinions and they are maybe looking to it from another direction...
- Still hope the developers are listining to community and takes some good things out of it.
- Not all story driven missions are big linear. But also with a 360 approach
- Nice mini games . like trowing axes or knives on a board for contraband or something.
- They keep good things like setting up the time in safehouses.
- You can talk to random strangers or at least to some people. or have some conversations about what is going on in the world.
- And last we get more information, still don't know if its like far cry 2 without the bugs and the annoying features. But just set in a tropical island with insane people.
- More information how they want to encourage teamwork in farcr 3 mutliplayer

Far Cry 3 Impressive Hands-On

Ubisoft opened its doors to a free-roaming hands-on at GamesCom this year with Far Cry 3 with no time wasted on presentations or lectures, just the chance to get as much game-time as possible.
From what I saw in the hands-on, I was incredibly impressed with Far Cry 3 and the game looks fantastic even though it was running on console which some may argue may not look as good as PC.
My hands-on was limited to a certain part of the open-world situation and the entire game is put into a first-person perspective. I was able to do a number of things that I actually wanted to do in the game which led to me to enjoying it even more.
The first thing I did was become accustomed to the controls and I was able to map out an area I wanted to go to and also plan an attack route for the first communications tower I wanted to hit. The map contains a whole bunch of these towers and they provide sight to the minimap once the scrambler has been disabled on them.
After a short drive with a stolen jeep and a couple of silenced take-downs with the composite bow I had, I was able to move inside and claim the area. Following this, the locals move into the area and it becomes a friendly zone. This came into play a little later as I attacked yet another area but this time the locals were on a natural patrol, saw some enemies and then ended up taking out most of them so I didn’t have to.
I moved on, picked up loot and new weapons and visited the shop to grab some upgrades for my guns, something which plays an integral part in the Far Cry 3 world. After moving to my next location, yet another communication tower, the developer told me that I would be able to open up a cage to unleash a bear into the little village. I ended up sneaking around for a while and put an arrow into the lock which broke it and the bear was able to move around freely. The bear assisted me in two or three kills but then was struck down as a lot more reinforcements came to help. These reinforcements didn’t appreciate my presence and were then able to gun me down as well.
On my second attempt at the same village, I moved through the other side of the forest to approach from a different angle and this time was taken by surprise. A rogue tiger leaped out of the bushes and pretty much killed me instantly. I was shocked, the developer was laughing and the game was silently mocking me.
Getting mauled by a rather angry cat
The conclusion that I came to at the end of the demo was that Far Cry 3 is definitely something to look out for this year. It may have taken a back seat in some gamers' minds because there has been a lot of activity in the last few months that may spark the imagination of gamers but I’m here to tell you that Far Cry 3 is definitely something that is going to be great to play. Not only is it fantastic to look at, it’s a lot of fun.

Not a very pleasing review, but MP is not my cuppa anyway. My concern all along was realism, believability and a geographical landscaped story that does justice to both. I enjoyed playing FC2 for its gritty realism in the jungles, steppes, and deserts of dusty Africa in the middle of a realistic civil war, using realistic equipment down to the old beaters you'd drive. Next, I loved RDR, and where they took realism and immersiveness onto a bigger level with interactivity. I truly hope FC3 will be even better, BUT I hope they didn't just throw random realism against the wall in the hope it sticks. I would've preferred a place like Afghanistan or Pakistan as the setting where it touches between rural remoteness and modern cities with commerce. The island we'll play on sure has many modern vehicles, lots of fuel and electric power along with the latest military materiel. I hope it's not too unbelievable, like bears on a tropical island as part of an action smorgasbord that hopefully sticks to attract players from all genres.

All in a days work.
Of course, they see multiplayer for FC3, and say "Kill an enemy, and earn 100 points. Repeat." Uh, it's been like this for EVERY shooter MP ever. You kill someone, and earn points in COD, MOH, and BF3. I saw Black Ops 2, and NO one said anything bad about it's MP. But here somes FC3, and there are little things from other FPS' and then it's bad?
Agreed, that is after all the whole point of the multiplayer..
COD has been stale for a while now, still a great game to kill some time with but nothing new has been added to the series in a long time and each year it's the same.
Im looking forward to FC3 multiplayer a lot..

UbiTimS = one of the ComDevs - So that is his 'official' account on YouTube - so 'That Guys opinion' is most likely correct

It would be impossible to please everyone - and a lot of people do like to complain.
I just see improvements - there are some things I am a bit iffy with but it would be hard to say without actually playing the game - I am sure this will appeal to a lot of the FC1 and FC2 fans with some exceptions, anyone that doesn't buy the game could be missing out big time, I see this as been a whole lot better then FC2 in all areas.
Yeah that guy clearly was out to say negative things from the start, and his excuses for complaining were all pretty stupid. Stuff like that has been a key feature in FPSs for years, and yet he nitpicks on that. What about all of the new things FarCry is bringing to the genre? Of course he doesn't talk much about that.

Sure I play the series too, but only because nothing else has come along yet other than Halo and I could never get into it myself. I'm very happy to say that I'll never be buying another CoD title thanks to FC3, and same goes for quite a few people I know. BO2 will likely finally show dropping numbers in the CoD series.
Demo that is described in first preview is not same as gamescom demo. Gamsescom demo was completely open world demo and press was able to play it hour, hour and a half as they want. E3 demo was on gamescom Far Cry 3 party not in main booth.
