He pokes fun at those who complain about the game not being a copy of CoD, whilst being a shooter. He also states the good points of the game in a perspective of those who bash the game for the aforementioned reason, as if they make the game bad.
Not enough people are checking this out, I had no idea I would like it so much more than almost every game this year. It stands up to Max Payne 3 for my GOTY.
I have always loved Far Cry 1 on PC. This seems like they took some of the best from that and mixed it with the open world of Far Cry 2, and this time they finally executed it as good as I've seen from an FPS.
The action feels really satisfying, and there are a ton of guns to choose from and customize. I like working for the signature weapons. I love the cover system, I love that there is an animation for the weapons that pushes the weapon against whatever you're covering. Games like Call of Juarez 2 did this, but the clipping kind of messed it up.
Someone mentioned this game just came out at the wrong time, and I think that really didn't help. Another thing is I feel the name Far Cry isn't popular, and Far Cry 2 didn't help. Although it got a small cult following, many people including myself found the game really tedious and needlessly frustrating for reasons that has been over so many times, and has been thankfully removed.
