Far Cry 3 PC Is Like Open World Uncharted In 1080P And High Resolution Textures

"Far Cry 3 is a terrific game and almost all the critics have said that it’s better than Far Cry 2 and one of the best games ever released this gen. Our review round-up over here will tell you how many of them have praised it. There’s a reason for the praise, though. The game looks magnificent on PC."

"...just because a game has plants it does not make it Uncharted, but the art design, colour palette and the overall environments resembles Uncharted too much. While the latter was a linear game, Far Cry 3 is the opposite and provides lush visuals at a higher scale."

Just thought I'd toss this quote on here before some hardcore PC gamer started to get his panties in a bunch...

Hummm... maybe Uncharted resembles the Far Cry series, since Far Cry was released before Uncharted.

dirthurts2012d ago

Far Cry is a classic.

Lol the Uncharted mention was probably just to cause a bit of a stir between PC & PS3 fans

Inb4 PC guys mention Crysis

SilentNegotiator2011d ago (Edited 2011d ago )


They compare it to a higher rated game (Uncharted 2, which is still considered one of the pinnacles of the generation, or 3, the most recent; take your pick, they're both rated higher) and then mention that you can do 1080p and higher textures on the PC version. Of course they're trying to rile people up between PC and Ps3 fans for attention.

Tontus2011d ago

@SilentNegotiator I despise morons like you who can't think for themselves and genuinely believe that critics opinions of a game means it is objectively better than another game with a lower average rating. Uncharted 2 or 3 is NOT better than Far Cry 3 just because critics gave those games higher scores, only if YOU have played all the mentioned games can YOU have an honest opinion on which is best, I am almost 100% you have not.

I have played all the games and think the Uncharted franchise sucks, does that make me wrong? Nope, it just means I'm not a mindless sheep who depends on critics to defend a games quality. Maybe you consider UC2 one of the pinnacles of the generation ad that's fine, but don't assume so because some critics and fans think so because I guarantee you that there's a ton of games much more beloved than any Unchated game this generation.

SilentNegotiator2011d ago (Edited 2011d ago )


I can't represent the majority of opinions by my own opinion, though. Which was of course the goal of that statement.

The majority of people that played the game rated it higher than Far Cry 3, and this article was designed to approach the majority, not just people that happen to not like Uncharted, like yourself.

I'm not "relying on it", I'm just stating the facts. You are incredibly rude and condescending.

I'll be playing this on ultra, 1080, @60fps. Boast over.

FATAL1TY2011d ago (Edited 2011d ago )

Uncharted 2-3 metascore 96-92

farcry 2-3 PC metascore 85-88

Uncharted is always better than farcrap.

I got an Uncharted vibe from some of the videos I've watched, largely because of how colourful and vibrant everything looks.

Wasn't overly interested in it to be honest, but the more I've looked into it and read some reviews, might be my personal sleeper hit of the year.

"largely because of how colourful and vibrant everything looks."

Re-downloading on Steam as we speak.

pennywhyz2012d ago

Every1 talkin about next gen.get a pc its 2 gen's ahead.

ChrisW2012d ago

Uhhh... Windows 2.0 was released in 1987

t0mmyb0y2011d ago

It was a joke. He said PC is 2 gens ahead. Consoles put a 2 after the name to show it's the next one. PC is just PC. Was hoping I wouldn't have to explain that one.

ChrisW2011d ago

Sorry... I guess it was a bit too abstract for my comprehension. :)

FriedGoat2011d ago

@Tommy, thats not true, some consoles put a 3 instead of a 2.

Need to get a new PC indeed since mine doesn't run all the new games anymore. But PC isn't 2 gens ahead. If I get a new PC now and then compare it to PS4 and next Xbox in a couple of years there won't be that much of a difference.

chcolatesnw2012d ago

if you get a low mid range pc now then yeah, it will probably equal xbox720/ps4. but those will only be able to achieve 1080p/60fps with mostly medium settings, maybe medium high at 1080p/30fps or 72p/60fps all high. however 1k pc can easily get you 1080p/60fps with mostly ultra some high (such as MSAA) settings, so yea he's right when he says PC is 2 generations ahead of ps4/xbox720

SoapShoes2011d ago

You're crazy if you think PS4/720 won't equal the performance of PCs released at that time. Consoles always equal PCs or surpass them when they come out then get passed up in a year and keep falling behind. When the Dreamcast launched it was ahead of PCs.

Norrison2011d ago (Edited 2011d ago )

I didn't see consoles running crysis, that proves that consoles were at least one gen behind PC when they got released, look at crysis on console; it doesn't have the epic physics nor destruction and it looks worse than very low

I_am_Batman2011d ago

@chcolatesnw: I totally agree with you. I should've mentioned that I would never buy a high end PC but a good mid ranged one because it's not that important to me too run the games that will come out in the next 2-4 years on max settings. Maybe that got me the disagrees because people always think high end PC if someone says PC.

@Estranged: Don't know if you really wanted to reply to me.

@Norrison: That doesn't prove anything but that Crytek couldn't make such a high quality game for the consoles. I didn't see Uncharted running on PC so what does that prove?

ZombieNinjaPanda2011d ago (Edited 2011d ago )

@I am Batman

You're aware you can build your own PC for the price of a mid-range one that would play most games on high or max settings, right? To say you'd buy a mid range one is the same as saying "I think I'll pay more money for something that is worse".

And you don't see Uncharted running on PC because Naughty Dog and the IP are owned by Sony/Playstation. Why is it that games like Crysis (the graphical benchmark) look amazing and are open world, but somehow Uncharted games wouldn't be able to run on the hardware?

BitbyDeath2011d ago

PC couldn't even run Crysis when it arrived.

I_am_Batman2011d ago

@ZombieNinjaPanda: That's what I meant by buying. I always buil my PC myself cause it's less expensive however I still would't buy High-End Hardware again. It's too expensive, it's too hungry, It produces too much heat and it's half price in a year and a half.

I hope that the devs didn't take a dump on the PS3 because I don't have a good PC nor do I want to spend the money on a new computer.
