I've been playing this for a few days now, it's really fun, a bit jarring having some stuff that feels familiar to AC series from liberating outposts, climbing on top of a radio tower to activate it so you "synchronize" the area, but those are just stuff I notice at a glance, the story's quite interesting too, it helps that Vaas's a real compelling villain. Crafting's a good addition, I just like the idea of going hunting to create holsters so you could carry more weapons and syringes, that's where the wildlife's really comes to life, like while I'm sneaking around a camp I could hear a tiger's growl and a few seconds later seeing it attacking the enemies surrounding the camp, that they also split the animals in categories from predators to those who are not dangerous, just the randomness on moments like following and watching a tiger chasing after a ox to being caught off guard by komodo dragons, especially since they could just surround you, it really elevate the atmosphere. I also like RPG vibe with the spending skills points so you could do stuff like enemy knife takedown, swim faster (helps when there's sharks around) to taking less damages from explosives, it gives a variation and I like it.

The A.I. is pretty consistent apart of an occasion or so when it's a bit wonky, it did made me laugh though, for an example there's one instance when the allies are driving two jeeps, both heading in different directions and just when they pass each other the driver in one jeep swirled and the jeeps crashed against each other. However I'm a bit bothered by the hand holding mechanics like tagging enemies via camera, tutorials pop‐up that appear every few seconds, glowing bodies/items, a reminder of a story mission you could start, it takes one out of the immersion for a moment's notice but I'd like to see Ubi adding no HUD option. It's possible that the game might feel repetitive later down the line (as usual with sandbox games after putting many hours into it) but I'm trying not to think about it and just enjoy the moment.

Yea all the HUD elements seem to be really off putting considering how little they were in the last game.

I'm looking forward to it tonight. I'm going to Hawkeye the game and use just the bow. It's going to be an epic night Far Cry 3 and The Dark Knight Rises

This or Hitman? Haven't played a good FPS in awhile, so I'm leaning towards FC3.

I've heard the framerate can get pretty bad in the console versions. True?

I haven't had any problems on the 360. Sometimes the colour seems oversaturated but I'm sure that's more to do with my TV settings than the game. I think it's a great game so far.

Hitman. However I must warn you my opinion is EXTREMELY biased.

I love it. It's basically one shot kill and you can pick your arrow back up, but don't buy it. It becomes free after you do 3 radio towers which can be very early in the game. I've become very addicted to
The crafting and the whole tattooing leveling up aspect is really cool

LOL.

I LOVE that some shotguns have slings. That alone makes this one of the best shooters of all time. Wish all the guns had them tho. I'll still never figure out why devs don't add slings on the rifles.


So far I'm liking the game a lot although not quite as much as FC2. The HUD elements in this game are SUPER annoying. I'm also not really buying into the random dude being a Jason Bourne-esq bad ass.

I really want to buy this game, but I have a suspicion my sister got it for me for Christmas and we're all about keeping presents secret until Christmas Day. Everything I've seen looks so damn good. I can't wait to kill a shark.

There are too many damn distractions in this game. I set a waypoint for a side mission that isn't too far from where I am and I wind up getting caught in fights and exploring caves on the other side of the map. As much as I love Far Cry 2 this is much easier to get into because it's designed better.

Does anybody else get shades of Lord of the Flies from this plot, though with 20 somethings?

How does the gameplay in this game feel? Is it more fast paced with your character feeling light like in Halo/COD or does your character control like a tank like in Dead Island?
