Far Cry 3 Sets the Benchmark for Open World FPS Genre (Interview) - PAX Prime 2012

"Ubisoft's Far Cry franchise is known for its epic scale and role-playing elements that delivers an open world first-person shooter unlike any other. It's been four years since the release of Far Cry 2, and the long wait for the sequel is justified greatly when examining the massive amount of content and gameplay experiences integrated within Far Cry 3."

I'll see how this one goes. I hope the game controls better than FC2 did.

iamgoatman2260d ago

Aiming with a controller in FC2 was horrendous. The acceleration has to be the worst I've seen in a game, couple that with large amounts of input lag and you had 2 options, try to move the cross-hair a small amount and get nothing, or a bit more and end up nearly spinning in circles.

Didn't feel great on PC either.

"Far Cry 3 Sets the Benchmark for Open World FPS Genre"

lol....that was and still is S.T.A.L.K.E.R., there is not in existance another fps better than the series, open world or otherwise, we'll see if this game is anything close....I'm doubtful

the 3 stalker games are the best open world fps's followed by arma 2, followed by crysis warhead, far cry 1, crysis 1, halo 1 and 2 then boiling point, then maybe far cry 2, maybe......

we'll see where far cry 3 fits in, i'm willing to bet it won't have shit on S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

HOLY CRAP, you mentioned Boiling Point. Haha, wow. To be honest, the FPS elements in that game were decent, but nothing great. Still, it was basically a nice mix of Far Cry and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky. Voice acting blew, though.

Anyway, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. as a series is right up there with HL and BioShock for me. Though, hold on, you didn't even list BioShock or Half-Life. How'd you miss those? 0_o

taquito2260d ago (Edited 2260d ago )

well, i love those, but they arent open world really, excellent shooters though, i mentioned halo series because the first 2 were somewhat open in spots

bioshock is corridor shooter for sure, but freaking awesome.

mynameisEvil2260d ago

It is a corridor shooter, but it's a corridor shooter in the DOOM sense. You can always go about the level and explore.

Oh, and have you ever played Boiling Point's sequel, Xenus 2 (which is a crap name to give the sequel to a game that wasn't named Xenus in the end, anyway)?

Since your bubbles are limited taken, I suggest you go to the good ol' PM.

I'd like to know why farcry 3 was delayed from its sept 4th release to dec 4th?

Im feeling worried since farcry 2 was kinda crap...except for the open world in jungle feel.

FarCryLover1822260d ago

Ubisoft are delaying games like always. I don't think it will release in December. I'm thinking mid spring.

Loved fc2, preordered this

Knushwood Butt2260d ago (Edited 2260d ago )

Me too.

Lots of flaws, but extremely atmospheric and a lot of fun.

Some of the travel got tiring but I usually found slaying the re-spawning morons at checkpoints quite amusing.

Also extremely memorable is sniping fools on boats and watching the hilarious death animation as they kind of jump up pogo-stick style and the land in the water.
