I might be in the minority, but I'm getting this over all the other shooters this year. Shaping up really well.

Is Project Origin this year too?

Far Cry 2, Gears of War 2, Resistance 2.
The rest will likely have to wait until 2009.

only resistance 2 tops this fps for me, oh and this limited edition is pretty lackluster

Not ANOTHER October release! Gonna have to pass since R2 and Gears hit a couple weeks later. If this is really good I will make an effort to buy but none of the games on my list will trumped by this.

well not really interested yet after my play season at GC. I think i will wait for KZ2 and play RS1 and RS2 this year and of course Bioshock. Really looking forward to that one.

I think I would delay this until next year if I were Ubi. There's almost no hype compared to the other big shooters...I just think it's gonna get lost. It's like third or fourth on the depth chart for a lot of people and that's a lot of money that they expect people to spend to get there. :\

Currently thinking this will be one of a handful of inevitable casualties from my preorders over the next few months. Still think its got potential and looks reasonably diverse for a FPS, but wasn't too taken by the latest vids and I'm not convinced the PS3 version will be up to scratch.

Ubi actually put out a video awhile back of the Playstation3 version. You can fine it on gametrailers and it honestly looks as good as the 360 version at this point except some noticable tearing

Not just big shooters...big games.

It is 4th on my October depth chart right now:

1) LBP (Oct 21)
2) Fallout 3 (Oct 28)
3) Fable 2 (Oct 21)
4) Far Cry 2 (Oct 21)
5) Saints Row 2 (Oct 14)

Well the only game I'm buying for certain in October is LBP. I'll probably rent the rest.
 
I thought last hands-on impressions were pretty negative? I'm waiting for reviews on this one. (also, please let the PC version be extremely superior <3)

Oh Gesus...I hope will be solved, is the main problem of Assassin's Creed on ps3 and I'm tired to watch handicap porting to ubisoft on the ps3... come on, after Heavy Rain is embarassing to see these differences yet...

I remembered enjoying Farcry1 for the PC. At the time it was a gorgeous looking game. I'll certainly get this off Gamefly but I don't think it'll be on my buy list.

Definitely looking forward to this, just don't know when I'll get time to play it with all of the other releases coming out that month.

Far Cry was my favorite shooter on xbox 1, even more so than halo 2. I loved the map editor and I can't wait for this one.

FarCry (PC) was great. It was second only to Half-Life 2 in it's day, and even then it's more fun for pure FPS gameplay, whereas H-L2 had better atmosphere/story/faces and better puzzles.

From the Crysis demo, it had very much a similar gameplay feel to FarCry (not surprisingly) and that's a good thing. I like these wide open FPS games, with only a few corridor levels, but very few FPS games offer that. I pre-ordered Crysis Warhead and FarCry 2 because I like this type of game. I haven't gotten Crysis yet mainly because Warhead offers a refined version of the game with optimizations leading to better performance, and also at a lower price. I'll consider picking up Crysis if the price drops to $30.
 
Fallout 3
Fable 2
Far Cry 2
Dead Space

Shit, and I only have a 360 (well a Wii too, but that doesn't count).

I'll probably only get two of these in October (one shooter, one RPG) and the rest will hae to wait until probably after the first of the year.

I'd say get Fallout 3 and Far Cry 2 first, and the other 2 when you have time.

Two opened ended FPS games in one month? I don't think that's good advice. I'd swap one out for Dead Space, which seems to be fairly linear and slow paced.
 
That map sure will come in handy.. not paying for it though.

Heavy Rain is doing something else on a single platform, this game is 50km squared of open world Africa. Considering how last year the game was switched from PC exclusive to PC and PS360 minor technical flaws are to be forgiven. Unless Ubisoft is not going full force with the marketing campaign as they did with Assassin's Creed I'd say this is good time for them to put it out.

Fallout 3's a FPS now? :lol Not from what I've seen, it isn't

OK but Assassin's Creed was an exclusive before and after was better on 360, ps3 is the devil of the ubisoft developers ...

Sure doesn't help my lack of confidence with this game after playing it for a while at PAX over the weekend.

-Crappy AI? Check
-Collectathons? Check
-Questionable story progression? Check
-"Immersive" features that happen way too often, make no sense, and end up being more annoying than anything? Check

Definitely waiting not just on reviews, but player comments too on this one. It's made by the same developer as Assassin's Creed, and so far it looks like it'll be adopting all of that game's problems too. Beautiful, competent technology with an at-best average game built on top of it.

To be honest all I care about is the multiplayer. I think nearly every single fps has most of those issues in the single player. I've gotten exactly one level in on halo and a few hours into Call of Duty before I got sick of both in SP.

Awesome! Yeah I'm in the ''all I care about is MP'' squad, but I might go explore the world in SP here and there. Map Editor will be amazing, can't wait.

Don't forget this is a UBI game so it will be buggy as fuck upon release as well.
