Technical issues are detracting from the game

Dan, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Launching the game is proving difficult to impossible. When launching, I'm presented with no evidence that the game is running although the uplay loader acts as if it has launched successfully. If I then flip over to Steam, I'm told that the game has already launched with no way to close the application. This seems to be a common issue based on forum posts I've read, so I'm less willing to chalk it up to an avoidable software issue on my end.

De-evolution of the HUD

kmfdm, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Disappointing "sandbox" shooter in almost every aspect. Graphics are fairly behind its 5 year old predecessor, the atmosphere is reduced to nothing and the entire game feels like a theme park with attraction behind every tree. And don't get me started about the HUD; what FC3 presents us is a devolution of the genre. Huge ugly boxes notifying me REPEATEDLY about the same thing over and over again; everything has large icons, huge font, taking space all over the display.

Difficult install on Windows 8.1

P. R., Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: Difficult to install due to poor Uplay and steam integration. None of these instructions are explained by Amazon, Steam, or Ubisoft. Apparently this integration is supposed to work automatically, but google this issue and you'll find tons of posts from people who can't get the game to work. I downloaded and re-installed three times before I found the correct steps. Steam was not auto starting the Uplay software correctly on windows 8.1.

A Downgrade from Far Cry & Far cry 2

Bobg1957, Bestbuy
6 November 2012
  • Summary: Far Cry 3 has potential if big changes are made. The big irritation is you cannot save the game and return to the same place.
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: UBI Control of Game

  • Summary: Disappionting. Gameplay and plot didn't live up to the hypd. Not as good as Far Cry 2 which was a good game but not a great game.

  • Summary: "Have I ever told you the definition of insanity?" Enligt mig så är definitionen att detta spelet är galet överskattat Jag fattar inte varför detta spelet är så hyllat. Ja, det är klart bättre än 2:an (har spelat det, sög rejält) men verkligen ingen hit. Känns inte riktigt som att Ubisoft har tagit åt sig kritiken de fick på ett vettigt sätt. Ja, det har lagt till fast-travel och tagit bort det otroligt irriterande "mellan-platser-striderna" på ett relativt bra sätt.

  • Summary: + Riktigt snygga miljöer. - Struligt med anslutningen till servrarna. En kompis kom på att man måste inaktivera alla extra nätverkskort(t.ex. VMware och Cisco VPN) annars går det inte spela alls. Finns massor av forumtrådar med strul men hittade inte denna info någonstans. - Om man spelar privat COOP och en spelare blir utkastad(pga. Ubisofts dåliga servrar) så måste alla andra också gå ur spelet och starta om hela scenariot.
