I'm wondering people's advice on preordering farcry 3. Based on graphics engine/gameplay/experience, what do you guys think? Worth it or not?


I personally liked far cry 2, never played the 1st one though. I thought the graphics in FC2 were awesome! Interested in seeing your guys's opinions on this topic...thumb.gif

FC2 wasn't great. FC3 looks like linear crap. And Ubisoft has only gotten worse since FC2. Wait till a week after release and look only at reviews that are the least bit critical of it, you'll thank me. All the other reviewers are in Ubi's pocket.

FC2
>respawning enemies at outposts
>driving 5kms to your objective
>being interrupted several times by ambushes during driving
>phyiscs, graphics

If you liked the first 3, then without thought pre-order the game. I'm going to skip this one because the concept of respawning enemies is annoying to me.

farcry 3 is different in the aspect of "respawning enemies" once you capture a road block or outpost its yours for good, the enemies you kill will be replaced with friendly NPCs, but you have to defeat all the enemies first then capture the point.

I wouldn't. Most games are a let down now a days so just what till it comes out. The only game I have pre-ordered in years is BL 2 and the only game I will pre-orderer the future will be GTA V.

This game looks like garbage. Mark my words, bargain bin within a month of release. The video where the narrator was extolling how cool it is to put a bomb on a tiger and then blow up the bomb and tiger was enough to deter me from this game. Sick mindless violence against animals just doesnt float my boat.

Taken out of it's full context, but ok. He was describing using it to take out a building or a group of enemies, not just strapping a bomb to a tiger and blowing it up just because...

But I seriously don't get how animals are on such a higher pedestal than humans are... Don't get me wrong, I love animals (especially cats) and would never hurt one, but I just don't understand why a game would just be normal when it has you gunning down hundreds upon thousands of digital people, and no one cares, yet one DIGITAL (yes, not even real) tiger getting hypothetically blown up, and people go crazy about it... It's a game, chill out. No one complains about all the sheep, goats, pigs, and cows that people 'mindlessly' kill in Day Z. Or how about the sheep, cows, and chickens in Minecraft? They get killed mindlessly all the time. No cry of foul against them? But suddenly when FC3 talks about using one as a strategic advantage over your enemies, it's suddenly abhorrent. Like I said, they're all games, chill out.

As for pre-ordering. I liked both FC1 and FC2 so I'm looking forward to 3, but I don't think I'll pre-order.

I've pre-ordered my copy. Only because I'll get the amazon pre-order guarantee, and for me, its dropped quite considerably. biggrin.gif. I will be finding out more information about the media edition (as opposed to the download version). Both Far Cry 1 + 2 are on my steam account, and I'd quite like to be adding Far Cry 3 to steam (even if this means canceling the pre-order and buying it through steam). From what I've read online though, it will most likely come with steam-works which from what I can tell means it'll be installed into steam, but just off a disc (thus saving my data allowance!).

After watching that video, the XP and the "Skill Tree" that they referred to reminds me of Dead Island. Just my thoughts mind!

pre order is what makes a piece of garbage like diablo3 a success.... if diablo3 had to stand on its own, it wouldn't have sold 10,000 copies and none of it would be collectors edition...
