Watch Far Cry 3 in Action
Another addition to the Far Cry universe mildly stirred my fancy. And that’s a meager “mildly” at that after the wishy-washy way Far Cry 2 performed (due in no small part to Far Cry creators Crytek having already moved on to bigger fish by then).
Ubisoft Montreal is back with another full-fledged sequel and it’s got my attention with this decent chunk of campaign footage. You’ve got a menacing fucking antagonist spoutin’ poetical on the definition of insanity, you’ve got yourself suffocating moments of peril, stealthiness is rewarded with instant knife-kills, and the atmosphere is effectively working in Far Cry 3’s favor.
Open-world survival is a genre I’m just dandy with, and if Ubisoft Montreal can achieve where Far Cry 2 failed, my attention level will evolve to “rapt." Far Cry 3 is pegged for September 4th on PC, PS3, and the Xbox 360, I’ll keep my eyes on it for you in the coming months.
