It's rare for me to play a game for the story. but this game, the acting is just incredible. Especially Vaas, probably the most magnetic acting I've seen all year and I'm talking movie and TV as well

Just watch this (It's during the burning house sequence), starting at 14:00. So slight spoilers, but really just watch it for the voice acting

Forget LA Noire, this voice acting in this game (at least Vaas, for now) is just absolutely captivating. In open world games, I usually never finish the story, but this is one of the few sandbox games where I'll be racing through the campaign missions to see more of Vaas. I can't wait to see more of his performance

Opinions? Or is there another game that does it better?

I'm not impressed with anything I've seen, or HEARD, of the game... Especially the "acting" during cut scenes. Are you serious??? Or are you being sarcastic...

:?

... Got me thinking you're totally sarcastic, saying "best voice acting you've ever SEEN". It's a joke, right?

Not to pick a nit, but referring back to the title of this thread don't you mean "Far Cry 3 has the best voice acting I have ever HEARD"?

EDIT: Sorry, Monkey, I don't mean to be a parrot of what you said first. I didn't see your reply until after I posted mine. It seems great minds think alike, eh? :P

Indubitably!

:D

The game is getting pretty high marks, but what I've seen of it on GT.com and other sources, for the life of my I don't see (or hear) it. I still have FC2 to swim through. Perhaps if I have a vacancy in the FPS spot of my gaming day after that... Which I've heard is a loooooong game... Then I'll give this a more serious look. Should be around 2014 or so. And, by then, it'll be $7.99, like my copy of FC2... Hurry up and buy your $60 copies everyone, so I can pick up my used copy for under $10!

:D

Can't wait to check it out. I found the Jackal's voice over was well done. Also, liked the voice overs in Enslaved.

French, as a language, puts me in an instant rage... I hate the sound of it, and want to pick up a steel bar and beat whomever is speaking it...

:lol:

... So many other languages are pleasant to my ear. Mandarin, Japanese, German... But some languages just sound awful to me. I'm really not a big fan of English, either. I think it's an ugly sounding language. Except when I hear a Manchester accent... Or Australian accent. Then English sounds kind of nice, and a tad musical. But on the whole, not a fan of English or French.

Vaas is the best video game performance I have witnessed in awhile. Thumbs up to whoever his voice actor is.

Just played the game for 2 hours, the intro is great, the voice acting actually is excellent. Expectations surpassed.

GreenManGaming was sending out codes for people that pre-ordered as early as a week ago.. Unfortunately, Ubisoft doesn't allow them to sell codes to people outside of Europe. :(

The game came out yesterday in Europe. It's a week later in NA this time, unlike other games where it's always the other way around. I can confirm the game is ****** amazing, played for about 6 hours total today. Takes some time to get into it, and I recommend doing a bunch of missions before you go out exploring too much. I do play it on pc though, and it looks incredible aswell. Gunplay is superb, stealth is great (both animations and the spot mechanics) and the island is huge. It's pretty much Dishonored with guns in a Just Cause 2 setting.

In my time as a gamer, no game has matched the voice acting of Uncharted 2 and 3 for me. Interested to see...I mean hear, if this can match it.

Far Cry 3 is going to be a Masterpiece.

The guy who does Vaas is Michael Mando.
