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):10/10Not 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."CVG:9.4/10"Stunning shooter could be the year's best game"IGN review: 9/10Official PS: 9/10OXM UK: 9/10Game Informer:9/10Nowgamer 9/10 reviewKotaku: YesPCGamer: 8.9/10Gamesradar: 4.5/5 "  Game info Genre: First Person Shooter Publisher: Ubisoft Developers: Ubisoft Montreal (SP), Ubisoft Massive (MP) Release: Nov 29 (EU, Australia); Nov 30 (UK); Dec 4 (N.A) Platform: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

8.0 Solid, fixes a lot of problems from 2, but still lacks cohesion/polish.

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.

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.

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

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

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.SNIPER4321

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

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.

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.

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.

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 :(

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.

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.

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