    I am honestly very surprised and impressed. I was expecting the worse and now to be honest I really want to try this game :D

    Well, i'd say the simple explanation for having the guns modelled the way they are is this:

    creative license.


    Thats the side of the gun you're going to see while playing the game (as the gun is held in the right hand) so therefore its looks better to put the detail on that side, to see any animations associated with it, and merely to have a more detailed gun model to look at.

    To be honest, if anyone was that into their guns that these slightly reworked details would dilute the game for them, then they're probably playing the wrong game. America's Army and the original Rainbow Six is where you go for realism. Far Cry 2 is where you go for open-world gameplay andd burning down African shanty towns full of baddies.

    It's blasphemy, that's what it is.

    Here's hoping you can buy one in game, or some crazy git will re-skin the model at least.

    What about ArmA: Armed Assault? Waay better than Rainbow Six :B

    I'd even suggest it might well be better than AA >.>

    Pfft, ArmA is sexytiem.

    Can't beat "100 yards, 11 o'clock" based squad reactions.

    On top of which, there's no Barrett in R6. How can you have a milsim game with no Barrett?

    I dunno, Rainbow 6 was so realistic you couldn't even see the guns!

    I hope it will be as adventurous as original Far Cry! That's all I expect from sequel to such a good adventurous game...

    What kind of hardware does this one require to play well or do we have to wait for technology in 5 years time to run it above 30fps?

    Neice preview. I am very excited about this game it's looking so much more fun that crysis. Hopefully it will be slightly better optimised though. How is crysis warhead going to compete with this?
