Anyone else a fan of this series? I know opinions were split on 2 but personally I loved it. Must've played it all the way through 3 or 4 times and that's with plenty of time spent on side quests and exploring.
Apparently the new one keeps a lot of the same elements but returns the series to its tropical island roots. They also supposedly corrected the one major gripe everyone had with the guard stations/checkpoints reverting to enemy control immediately once you passed a certain magical distance.
I love the idea of animals attacking you. Reminds me of STALKER where there's more to worry about than just enemies. I'll definitely pick it up eventually but don't have time to play it now so might as well wait to see if it goes on sale.
I'm also pretty intrigued by the new crafting system they added. Gathering plants and other objects from the environment to upgrade your equipment is more organic (pun intended) than hunting around for conveniently misplaced diamond briefcases to buy unlocks.
That's good news. It was a shame they had to compress and speed up the dialogue in FC2 because the game wouldn't fit on the disc otherwise.
The map in this one is much much larger. More diverse too. Have a small problem with the draw distance. There's quite a bit of pop ins. But that can be accredited to the sheer scope of the game and current hardware reaching its limits. Time for new consoles! This and Assassins Creed 3 are perfect examples of teams being unable to complete what they wanted due to technical limitations
I just played for 3 hours. I figured it was more like 45 minutes. Insane game.
Happened to me so many times.
"Meh ill do this outpost and ill be done. Oh but there's also a radio tower nearby. Oh there's dingos near here? I'll just kill some to craft more. Oh that smoke stack looks close, this is the last outpost I swear. "
