Four Reasons ‘Far Cry 3′ Has The Potential To Be Great

UPROXX - There are a lot of gaming titles coming up in the next four months, and many of them have enormous potential. But the one I’m starting to look forward to the most is Far Cry 3.

It’s especially odd because I wasn’t a big fan of the original game, and thought the reboot/sequel was a bit iffy.

But Ubisoft has been showing they’ve got a mix of good ideas and a willingness to try new things that may make it stand out, especially in a crowded genre. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Potential? Maybe for some but for me Far Cry 3 will be freaking incredible. My front runners for GOTY. Assassin's Creed 3, Borderlands 2, and Far Cry 3. http://www.youtube.com/watc...

I dont get all this GOTY stuff befire anyones even played it. I rember Farcry 2 looking really good, when it came out everyone soon realised it wasn't very good at all.

Remember its the marketing departs job of any publisher to hype a game as uch as possible, no matter how crap it is.

Great Preview. I have high hopes for this game and I personally hope it surprises everyone.

Never considered Far Cry 2 as a sequel, this on the other hand looks like a true follow up to the first one.

really? i mean i havent really seen alot of vids on FC3 but ive yet to see or hear of a trigen, and without any mention of a trigen its not even a distant relative to FC1.

^ I can remember that so funny at e3 ^
Lets hope so. I thought farcry 2 was ok but abit boring at times and the multiplayer felt like a quick add on just to give it a multiplayer but what I have seen from farcry 3 it's looking good apart from that coop

I can't wait for this, Far Cry 2 was extremely disappointing to me and I hated what they did with the Map Editor. This game has looked nothing but excellent but I'm afraid the Map Editor will be really bad since they refuse to show a demo of it at any of the conferences. Still picking it up and I hope the ME will be excellent so I can get absorbed in it like I did with Instinct/Predator.

I remember getting a new pc and far cry 1 and it was such a good time! A stand out even. 2 didn't have that same effect. Once I saw the trailer for 3 I knew it had the chance to be gaming greatness. Hoping this game is going to be as epic as I think it's going to be.
