Ugh, pretty much what I expected after GT's horrible review, which was full of way too many double standards and inconsistencies for it to be considered "professional."
Disappointed Far Cry 3 didn't get the chance to be nominated for some of the VGA categories due to its release date - honestly Ubisoft would take the cake if that were the case, with both AC3 & FC3, this has pretty much been their year, surprised they're not nominated for the 'Best Studio' award - some really dumb choices for that one in particular.
how different is the gameplay from the 1st/2nd Far Crys?
I think the best way to sum up the game is the line they've been using in their recent adverts - 'Skyrim with guns', although there's a very obvious inspiration by Assassins Creed as well, both in the stealth mechanics and the radio towers you have to climb.
When they started to say that "Hits and Getting hit doesn't matter" I just lost it. They sound as if they have never played the game before!
And then when they said that they aren't going to complain that it isn't smash bros, they just went ahead and did that!
Yes, this game isn't perfect and it certainly could use some improvement, but its not nearly as bad they were saying.
