I got the first one free with me Senhiser headphones, played it for 30 minutes and uninstalled it. That game alone put me off this series forever. I will never give this a chance ever!! Plus Ubisoft is a shady developer, I was EXTREMELY let down by Far Cry 2 and with Splinter Cell Conviction to some extent. Ubi has been very poor this gen IMO

What? I like AC franchise a lot, this looks very good even though I'd like Ubisoft to make AC3 rather than this.

It was a joke. In a movie called Rainman, Dustin hoffman's character is constantly saying "definetly" so i got it from there..Nothing personal dude :)

Far Cry 2, aside from the guard posts respawning, is one of my favourite FPSs ever created because of the uneasy atmosphere it creates during gameplay rather than in cutscenes. As a shooter, very responsive, weapon jamming is genius, and love the options for sliding/running movement. At points when you get ambushed, and it's scripted that you can't win, those are some pretty amazing moments like in the Church.

However, I can't forget how much fun it is to run over zebras!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (22 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Feels so much similar to Watch Dogs 2's mechanics, minus the best parts. (23 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I understand what the developers are trying to achieve, but the execution leaves much to be desired. And make no mistake, this is a collect-a-ton open world first and foremost than a TPS game. (24 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts are too predictable. Didn't have any challenge to it. But it's not all bad, the chatter between the team members is really nice and the customization is great. Graphics are very good, minus pop-ins. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Can't put my finger on why exactly, but if I had to guess is because the shooting is so bad, and in a TPS game, that's basically it. The areas you explore are really good, design wise, but the enemies (27 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It's a Ubisoft game by the numbers. It's like playing Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, etc in a military setting. Had fun checking lists and collecting stuff, but it feels hollow somehow. (29 minutes ago)
