Far Cry's had a long history of half-decent, half-imaginative and half-broken multiplayer. The mix of open-world mechanics and online firefights should work wonders, but Ubisoft's never quite managed to find the right balance: good ideas are swapped in for bafflingly wrong-headed ones, leaving a strange trail of multiplayer modes that are partly genius and partly mediocre.
