Far Cry 3
definitely isn't the second coming of Far Cry 2, but the more I see of it, the more I'm actually pretty OK with that. It's big, loud, and over-the-top, but ' to hear its lead writer tell it

. Also, there are tigers. Last time I played a demo, I tried to turn them on my enemies, but instead, they traded our five-second-long allegiance for my jugular. Then I caught on fire and died. Which is a long-winded way of saying combat seems nicely open, and ' if a new trailer's any indication ' the world itself will have a breadth of options to match.
