    Yeah the graphics are not that much improved from FC3, I do enjoy the mountain backdrops tho the skybox is really quite beautiful but the textures start too look a bit gawdy up close similar to skyrim in that respect, hopefully we'll get some mods further down the line.

    Definitely agree with you.
    The facials on COD:AW were amongst the best I have seen on pc.

    I doubt FC4 will beat these.
    PS- Can anyone tell me if there will be another hot citra in Fc4?

    Dont get me wrong though, they do the job. For me, the real question was if the gameplay was actually going to be worth the price of admission this time as i found FC3 to be nothing but a Ubi-template.

    I honestly think that Ubisoft would be better off having a sales model along the lines of, say, you pay 60 bucks for a Ubi-template and that gives you access to a check list sort of.. a make your own pizza thing and you just tick boxes such as 'Rinse n Repeat', 'Era', 'Cultural Setting', 'open world or straight n narrow (eg; corridor gameplay)' and your choice of animal or gimmick. Once you've made your choices, Uplay then downloads the selected and required files and builds the game on your harddrive for you to play. Kinda like a map editor, except for a whole game.

    This FC from every video Ive seen, the reviews and playthroughs that are up, its simply traversing from one checkpoint/stronghold to another while some muppet talks crap over the radio to you. Then there's the exact same story of FC3, but in a different location with differently dressed characters.

    Its quite amusing really. Ubisoft have taken the thing that pretty much everyone hate most about FC2 (the checkpoints) and made them the focus of FC3 and 4. Its genius if you think about it. A simple rename and a bit of marketing can do wonders. Brilliant!

    I really dont know how people can pay money for this stuff, i really dont.

    A pass from me, but well done to the devs for having a day 1 stable game.

    I get what you're saying but I think the location is the major draw for these games, we got to visit Africa then Indonesia and now the Himalayas, the gameplay doesn't do anything for me as you say it's rinse and repeat, for me it's all about the local but then I will be playing this on my rift and that brings another dimension to it, kind of glad it's not resource heavy for that reason alone but I have yet to play it all the way through so i'll refrain judgement on the gameplay until i'm futher in, just gotta wait for the sli profile...

    Yeah just watched it and seriously why did they do that?
    Totally devalues the entire game and makes playing the game not worthwhile.

    Silly if you ask me..:bang:

    Seriously?

    It's meant to be a funny little hidden gag. It only devalues the game if you are honestly dense enough to believe the game is really over at 15 minutes.

    I personally think it's awesome.
    It's not serious, it's meant for FUN.

    Maybe waiting for the official release with the Day 1 updates and possible driver updates from Nvidia...

    But, possibly, mostly, waiting for the release day.

    You're the first person I've seen who has stated that an easter egg has devalued a game :p

    I seriously dont whether its a:

    Fail on Ubisofts part that they've disguised as an Easter Egg.

    or

    An Easter Egg that Ubisoft have disguised as a fail for laugh.

    I lol'd. Now I don't even have to play the game. Good ending with zero effort. I like it.

    Seriously though, I wasn't going to touch this turd anyway. Far Cry 3 was okay. But I'm not paying $60 to play it again except with a different backdrop. Everything else about this game is basically identical.

    Spent all yesterday evening reading through various reviews and if I were to say they hadn't swayed me somewhat I'd be a pathalogical liar. I may just give this a shot now especially given the fact performance issues don't seem to be a problem.

    Thank you for being the only person who actually understands. I play games equally on PC and consoles so do not prefer one over the other. Both have their plus and negative points and the fact that I do not play games online means that I use the controller for everything except point and click and strategy games on PC. If someone thinks the only reason to play games on the PC is because of the mouse and keyboard in FPSs then they are not appreciating what this platform has offer which is a CHOICE of how to play your games, whether it is graphics settings, resolution, framerate or control method. Does it really matter to anyone how I choose to play my games anyway when I am playing them on my own? :3eyes:
