MP1st - Far Cry 3 Multiplayer Review

MP1st - "If you're one of the many followers of the Far Cry series, then you'll know that it's quiet easy to get lost in such imaginative worlds that Ubisoft have created. Filled with dangers around every corner, beautiful graphics, and enjoyable gameplay, Far Cry 3 single-player is where it's all at. It's too bad the same can't be said about the multiplayer."

The story is too old to be commented.

Thought this was for FC3 in general for a moment, then I saw the 'Multiplayer' and then it all started clicking.

Pretty pointless idea giving a review purely for multiplayer though imo. Like a certain magazine reviewing a certain multiplayer beta for a certain FPS mere hours after its release.

Actually its pretty damn good to know multiplayer part is a complete pile of unplayable shit. All the websites give it high score but non of them even tried multiplayer or mentioned finding a game is just like having a good luck due to shitty uplay and ubisoft servers, nobody even cares to mention they removed vehicles from multiplayer and map editor freezes every 5 minutes...

Co op is cool but the rest blows

MP1st is a website dedicated to multiplayer in video games. They don't review singleplayer, just the multiplayer aspect.

Which is why it's called "Multi Player 1st".

Well then they don't have too much in the way of credibility in my books after giving out a score like this. I've been playing the multiplayer on PS3, and its just as competent as Call of Duty is for the most part, and it blows Medal of Honor out of the water.


How exactly doesn't the multiplayer work? It works for me everytime. I will admit that I got stuck in a loading screen once and had to reboot my PS3, but other than that its been really good.

I've stated whats wrong with in the review.
Stats are keeping track, I didn't mention this but servers are constantly going down (look at ubisoft tweets for proof), the map editor has been crippled in comparison to the last title, and the balancing between weapons need sorting. The stat resets are crazy annoying.

I'm not the only one experiencing these issues. A quick jump to their forum MP feedback thread will show nearly every page with the same complaints. There's also lag that I didn't mention either.

I did mention in my review that if Ubisoft were to patch these issues it would have been a great MP title. BTW I didn't review MoH david did, and IMO that MP was trash and buggy as hell. For me Far Cry 3 MP almost feels the same, except I know it can be fixed with a few patches.

there are also long lenghtly individual threads explaining what's broken about it.

we only review the MP portion of titles and it's good for those who are interested in the MP mode of the title. I did praise the co-op, seeing that it's the only thing that seems to work, but our demographic for the site are typically players who want just MP news, heck we have even tried in the past to include single-play on it and it doesn't suite well with our audience.

Plus considering that most sites out there only mentioned the MP as being a mode not to look forward to without going in depth is a bit troubling considering that they have not given any real explanation why.

Am i the only person who is enjoying the hell out of the multiplayer portion?

Nitrowolf21958d ago

if you can get into a game that works it's great and crazy fun, but for many (including myself) its broken in it's current state.
