Preview: Far Cry 3′s multiplayer seems generic - Canada.com

Far Cry 3's multiplayer mode is way too much like Call of Duty's. Hopefully the single player campaign is better (Far Cry 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

Well if it's like COD then it shouldn't get a bad score because at the end of the day if COD gets away with being generic I dont see why other games should, especialy when FC3s single player looks way more well done then anything COD could do for it's single player.

Far Cry 2 had generic but fun MP. The map editor in Far Cry 2 (consoles) is the best I have seen, even better than Forge in Halo.

I really hope FC3 has a great SP. Hell, I'd even settle for a sequel to the original, it used to be so much cooler.

i totally agree on the mp part. it's kind off disappointing to see that the gameplay seems to be generic, but the map editor totally makes up for it if it's at least solid.
the problem is the focus is even more on the gun-on-gun gameplay because you can't put in vehicles in the editor anymore...

When the Canadians think you're mild and over-done, it's time to rethink your life.

Go home and be a family man, Far Cry.

so if cod mp is generic and gets away with it , why cant other games ?

It seemed that way when I first seen the gameplay of it, sure it has the map editor but to be honest the requirement to download maps everytime you enter a custom map puts people off playing custom maps.

The gunplay which is the real core and the mechanics look very simplistic and nothing really new has been attempted by the looks of things thus far so generic? probably a valid term for the MP.
