Or at least, away from the prying thumbs of video game journalists, who just want to play the game and tell you what it's like. Well we've finally had the controller in our hands, and played a little four-on-four action in Ubisoft's much anticipated sequel to Far Cry franchise of first person shooters. And how is it? Read on.
First, the basics though. There are four multiplayer modes that take advantage of Far Cry's intelligent take on first-person shooters. Deathmatch and team deathmatch are present for you more traditional type of shooter fans out there. There's also a mode called "Capture the Diamond" which is basically just capture the flag, but with a huge rock instead of a banner on a stick. But then there's a more unique mode - something most big time shooters seem to be incorporating these days in an effort to be different – and it's called Uprising."
