    I liked the mechanic of the map, that's all. Memorising the land, a bit of scouting, learning routes. Clutter free screens were all the rage, and suddenly we've swung full circle and there's 'gamification' shit everywhere. See: FC3, Dead Island, Syndicate*.......don't even mention the levelling shown in the vid. It's just unnecessary.

    *(I'll let Borderlands 2 slide. Just 'cause.)

    I tend to not particularly mind in, y'know, games.

    Wasn't the first gameplay vid what they showed at E3 last year?

    For the time I played FC2 I actually enjoyed the wear and tear. Those little features help add to the atmosphere of a game. It also meant you really valued your specially purchased weapons.

    Holy shit there's quite a bit of run-and-gun there, something that would get u killed fast in FC2. It's pretty and all but I hope this not representative of all the in-game action. FC2 pained my ass in many ways, but the oppressive atmosphere and "realistic" touches are something I want to see make a comeback. The world has enough run-and-gun shooters.

    Indeed, I hope that's just someone running through it on easy. I'd hope the games difficulty is punishing enough that you wouldn't be able to survive a silly assault such as that.

    Having someone carefully moving and planning their attacks make for lousy trailers.

    My only complaint is that enemy direction indicator is rubbish, is Jason a Ghost or something?

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I think that was what made FC2 brilliant for me but also killed it as well.

    I could handle the realism as long as its carried on throughout the game. Having worn out guns that jam built up the immersion, but put that next to instant re-spawn checkpoints and that immersion was destroyed.

    I was really hyped about this, until the new trailer with the 'drugs' in. Me no so excited now.

    The thing I don't understand is that Crytek release Crysis through EA and Far Cry through Ubi.

    How?

    @Dirtbox
    Only Far Cry 1 was Crytek.
    Then EA bought Crytek, from what I remember.

    Ubi had the rights to it from the old deal, which is why Crytek use the Crysis franchise instead.

    Not that I care about such things in a Far Cry game but OMG look at that MP footage! I just don't get devs who chase COD, if I wanted to play COD I would play it why am I gonna buy your game to essentially play more COD MP?

    Oh well as long as the single player is still great they can copy whatever they want for MP. Still not sold on that XP stuff in the single player though it's good they are trying some RPG elements to it but for me a huge part of FC2 was the immersion, you were out there in the African wilderness, a load of numbers showing up above enemy heads will kill that immersion a lot worse than respawning checkpoints. I do Hope I'm wrong though

    It's all gone to pot since last E3 :-(

    The drugs element
    The COD multiplayer

    Awww man. This was looking like my game of the year, now it's looking more and more disappointing.

    A far cry from Far Cry.

    Uncharted-a-go-go. Looks lovely, but it really does remind me how much I like 'silent' characters in the right setting. I'll be craving the same sense of gritty, foreboding dread that Africa provided, and I'm not sure this'll deliver.

    God, the MP looks shit. I never play FC for the MP though. But still...

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Note to developers, I actually want to play the game.

    That looks horrible. Stop taking control away. Boring beyond belief. That whole segment should just be a cut scene if your going to do that. Waste of dev time.

    No funny fast talking in this one?

    Load of scripted nonsense wasn't it. Games are supposed to be played not watched.

    Yes. That video is better than any review. I know that I'll never like this.

    Fiat Lux

    Reminds of BF3s single player. Other than it looking quite nice, it looks like it'll be incredibly tedious to play.
