I was comfortable in being incorrect in my predictions that Far Cry 3 would involve some form of free roaming excellence coupled with a thousand irritations, like a sleek engine attached to a ship of fools, grinding down the tracks, lopsided and soon to be derailed. What I didn’t expect was quite so much railroading in the game, or at least in this segment of the game. In a clip found over at Gametrailers, a man named Jason rescues a lady from a burning building in a scene that resembles a section of Uncharted 3 taking place in first person far more than it resembles any of my predictions regarding the eventual shape of Far Cry 3.
There’s a neat series of punchlines when he points to where he needs to go and then goes there, eventually demanding to be made an actual passenger. I know, I know, it’s just one itty-bitty chunk but I’m hoping it tells me less about the game than a video of a rotating logo that explodes occasionally with whatever today’s trailer musical cue of choice is playing over it at an obnoxious volume.
