10 minute official launch trailer: Link First reviews are in.Great scores so far: Eurogamer 10/10 "For me this is the new apex predator of open-world shooters. Hunt it down as soon as you can." Guardian (UK):10/10 Not only is the single-player game huge, but it's backed up with pretty tidy co-operative and multiplayer modes. Far Cry 3 may chart the holiday from hell, but for any fan of open-world shooters, it will feel like the best holiday ever from the drudge of daily life. The Globe and Mail (Toronto): 10/10 "Only the best shooter of the year" This fall season has seen the release of several high-profile first-person shooters in the latest instalments of the Halo and Call of Duty franchises. Both are likely to break sales records, but neither is a good indicator of where the FPS genre as a whole is heading. EGM 10/10 "Considering the industrys current obsession with terrorists, aliens, and zombies, it was a ballsy move to focus on something so simple, but Far Cry 3s dark trip into the vacation from hell hits the nail on the head, delivering on some of the most impactful moments in gaming history with all the gall and grace of a feature film."

awesome hype thread man.

I vote AA.

#3 Posted by Zeviander (9503 posts) -
8.0 Solid, fixes a lot of problems from 2, but still lacks cohesion/polish.
#4 Posted by SPYDER0416 (16736 posts) -

I would have said a solid 9.0-9.5, but as fun as it looks Gamespot has been rating things 8.5 a ton lately, while a couple of things stand out (like the AI being a tad easy to kill, HUD being much less subtle and the potential for polish issues as an open world game).

So I'm guessing 8.5, though it's still a day one download for me.

#5 Posted by casualU (306 posts) -
far cry just feels super cheesey without crytek making it.
#6 Posted by hoola (6422 posts) -

I think it will be AA but I am going to take a risk and vote AAA.

#7 Posted by Ballroompirate (22555 posts) -

Still deciding if it will be a day 1 buy or a later on down the road game.

#8 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

Game has 8.5 written all over it.

#9 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9511 posts) -
9/10, but cuz this is GS we could expect a 8.5/10
#10 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11610 posts) -

I hope it's great, but I'm saying AA.

Now someone make a Hitman Absolution hype thread!:x

Ive never played Far Cry before, but i was impressed with what i saw at E3. Game looks pretty cool.

#14 Posted by clyde46 (44983 posts) -
I'm thinking 7.
#15 Posted by HaloPimp978 (7263 posts) -

I'm thinking 8.5 based on everything I have seen so far.

#16 Posted by xOMGITSJASONx (2634 posts) -

First Day buy. Far Cry 2 was a rough around the edges but great, authentic & atmospheric shooter that had a unique flavor. Can't wait for FC3.

#17 Posted by xOMGITSJASONx (2634 posts) -

HaloPimp978

That is what I am thinking as well.

#18 Posted by PCgameruk (1425 posts) -

7.5-8.0 by the looks of it. But you never know the story could be real good.

#19 Posted by jackfruitchips (1066 posts) -

I'm hyped AAA. Day 1 buy!

#20 Posted by Randoggy (2672 posts) -

Can't wait for this game. Couldn't give two s**** what score it receives.

Expecting nothing since the Far Cry series ceased to exist after Ubisoft took over.

The Domination of the Continuation of the Domination :cool: Why do others even try anymore??
#26 Posted by megadeth1117 (1830 posts) -

The game looks great, leaps and bounds over FC2. I just hope the PS3 version comes out okay.

#27 Posted by NoirLamia777 (2132 posts) -

I think it will get AA. It looks pretty good to me and I'll probably get it at some point.

#28 Posted by Thefatness16 (4672 posts) -

Going with an A.

#29 Posted by campzor (34932 posts) -
AA (8.5)
#30 Posted by SNIPER4321 (10143 posts) -
It looks like 7ish game. avg at best, nothing special that lot of ppls claim. graphics looks gen behind Crysis (a 5 year old game. srsly??), and some causal elements that turn me off. like arrow showing where enemies are, tag enemies so u can see throw walls,. gunplay looks mediocre at best.
#31 Posted by sukraj (22133 posts) -

This is my most anticipated game of 2012 and i'm expecting big things from this game and i think it will receive an 9.0 from gamespot.

Is metro last night gunna be mediocre at best.:roll:

#33 Posted by lamprey263 (23169 posts) -
I say AA, not to say I won't like it but I don't see this really blowing any critics away
#34 Posted by NaveedLife (17179 posts) -

When the info started pouring in I was super hyped. Then I heard some negative things from sites. I really hope it is awesome, cause I love the idea of it and would gladly buy it if it is as good as I had hoped.

#35 Posted by OB-47 (10908 posts) -

Oddly not excited for this one anymore. Maybe it's because I've gotten my console FPS fix on Halo 4?
The MP looks meh as hell, but FC is about the SP anyway. It's looks pretty decent, and the story sounds interesting with all it's 4th wall breaking stuff.

#36 Posted by lamprey263 (23169 posts) -
I'll be satisfied if this can remain a story driven game and not just something with a few and far between story elements, Far Cry 2 was beautiful in the graphics engine area but in the end it was just another sandbox filled of repetitive cookie cutter tasks, hopefully they addressed that with this game.
#37 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16297 posts) -

This looks AAA. The singleplayer looks like it will be providing a lot of freedom in how you do stuff.

Far Cry 1 &2 tried the same. And 2 made a lot of mistakes (more than the first one). This looks like a big improvement. no malaria ? Gee, thanks !

The multiplayer looks like a cheap BF/COD clone though so not interested when there are better games (BF/COD) out there.

Shame Massive had to make such an abomination instead of something like World in Conflict 2 :(

you will be shocked to find out that farcry3 with have far better gameplay and graphics than metro last night.

#39 Posted by Rocker6 (13358 posts) -

I'll go with AA (8.0), though I must say, not overly excited about the game...

Will probably get it later for cheap, though. Also, I'm really annoyed by this "pre-order/platform exclusive DLC" game Ubisoft is playing lately...

Gameplay? thats debatable. Metro will be more linear and Far Cry more open. Some like the first while other the latter

Graphics? No way. Far Cry 3 doesn't stand a chance against Metro.

from what ive seen far cry 3 graphics look sick.

#44 Posted by IgGy621985 (4627 posts) -

After I was actually pretty pumped about MoH Warfighter, I'm cautious about this one, so I'll preditct something between 7 and 8.5.

Far Cry 2 looked great too, but not as good as Metro 2033

Metro's gameplay is literally just like CoD. Explain to me how it's different.

I like both FC3 and Metro LL. Although I think FC3 looks great, I agree Metro graphics will blow it out of water.
