    My favorite part about Far Cry in general is its theme of being stranded and/or lone with that feel of desperation, especially Far Cry 2, Great to see Far Cry 3's insanity theme doesn't disappoint

    Not played the game yet too lazy to read review All I know, game graphics here are BEAUTIFUL!

    Can't wait to play this. That is all.

    While I'm not big on FPS (starting to get into them), this really piques my interest and I'm glad to see that it satisfies. Maybe I'll pick this up after I finish Deus Ex

    I'm still kinda iffy about this one... Far Cry 2 really disappointed me, considering all the praise people were throwing at it. I'll wait for someone else to buy it, then i'll "borrow" it for as long as I need.

    I had a hard time getting into Far Cry 2 myself. This one is far more focused, but still provides a ton of awesome side missions.

    This one is better in every way. Still a few minor problems, but it's almost completely excellent. Yes, I have played it.

    i'm in the same boat, that game was a huge let down. i didn't know 'emergent gaming' could be so boring. this looks vastly improved, however, and it's kind of unfortunate that it comes out in two weeks...
  • Moondoggie1157 - November 21, 2012 6:56 p.m.

    I'm really excited whenever I watch a gameplay demo, i just don't know if I can handle being hurt again... The first cut was too deep. I'll coax my brother into buying it so I can jack it when I visit them MUAHAHAHA... I'm a dick, but I admit it.

    Unfortunately, if the game has Skyrim-like pop-in, I won't be playing it.

    who doesn't play a game cause some things pop-in..bitches these days
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - November 21, 2012 11:48 a.m.

    You'll run into a bit of pop-in on consoles (possibly on PC, depending on your specs), but it's never overly distracting.

    Really? Such a minor inconsequential detail as pop in will turn you away from a good game? Tool.

    You can say whatever you want about Ubisoft, but you have to give them credit for pursuing the Far Cry formula after Crytek abandoned it in favor of Crysis.
  • Fox_Mulder - November 21, 2012 11:10 p.m.

    Church. Although I do love Crysis, the mechanics are great, but it doesn't feel like Far Cry does. Plus I love the jungles. I would prefer jungles than cities in Crysis 2, but 3 is going in the direction of "city turned into a jungle" so hopefully Crysis 3 will be less linear than 2 and more open like Far Cry and the original Crysis was.

    I loved Far Cry 2 and I'll probably get this when it's released. Its good to see that they've concentrated on the singleplayer and not wasted a lot of effort on short-lived multiplayer content.

    Hey. Can you make single player maps with the map maker?
