About 5 minutes of gameplay from Far Cry 3 have sneaked onto the internet leaving in it’s wake a series of “Ooo that looks cool”‘s and “Aaah another generic shooter”‘s.
Well, that’s how I felt when I was watching it. No doubt, the game is very pretty and the gameplay certainly looks fast paced and fun. But I imagine that’s how it feels to play Modern Warfare 3. I mean while it looks cool and there are some pretty damn nifty moments where you go “Daaaaayyuuum!” it doesn’t look like it really has much innovation or does anything particularly interesting.
Now normally I’d just shut up at this stage and embed the video but for some bizarre reason the Youtube video has been taken down by Ubisoft. And this is the same video embedded over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun… Whether this video has actually been leaked without Ubisoft’s permission, I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, the only other copy I could find had what appeared to be a German voice-over. So instead of embedding I’m going to have to direct you over to Eurogamer who have the footage in their own annoying format.
