finally bought far cry 3

Postposted on Sun Dec 01, 2013 10:31 pm

Despite the uPlay drm. Its currently on sale for $10/ deluxe ed.
Played 2 hours and it was some of the most frustrating gaming time I've ever spent.

Seems like the idea of Far Cry 3 is awesome and the execution just sucks ( so far). It is just not at all fun to play so far.
Its marketed as open world play but feels very much like a shooter on rails so far. I actually got the warning that I was straying from my path to a way point and leaving the path would result in a failed mission. :roll: Is this Far Cry or COD?

I'm still hopeful that it will get better because it seems the idea behind it is good.
Maybe it will suck less after I get further along. However, I'm honestly about to abandon it already because it just is not fun.

The menus are infuriating.

once you get used to the controls, it's a blast to play, i'm on my second island, and killing enemy is never the same, just give it some more play time and it'll grow on ya

Bought it for $7.50 today. Didn't get deluxe or DLC because I doubt I will ever finish it. Never finished FC2 either, but it is fun in doses.

played a bit more and feel about the same.

I think most of my frustration in the first 30 minutes was that I had the hint stuff turned on. Once I found out how to disable all that annoying stuff, it got a bit better.
Still, it just isn't fun for me yet. Not sure why because the idea of it thrills me.

I'm sure it'd be more fun with a 4K monitor and R290
