Bought this game on Steam Winter sale at 25% off, and played it almost daily for about 2 weeks. Amazing experience! This game is pretty lengthy on the campaign side: Took me 23.6 hours to beat the campaign, and already I wanted to play again because it's so absorbing, and no spoilers, but it has two endings. SAVE YOUR GAME BEFORE LAST MISSION! I didn't, so now I have to backtrack from a much earlier auto save to continue and witness first hand the other ending.

This game, especially on the PC is THE new standard in gaming benchmark for DX11. Playing this game at 2560 x 1440 on a single display, and a single GTX 680 on VERY HIGH settings (not Ultra) I get about 40-55 frames. I didn't Fraps benchmark, but casually looked at EVGA Precision X's OSD and noticed in wider area, a solid 50-55, and about 30-40 in denser area with more trees and branches. Absolute power beast and the new game to show off your PC build-- You can finally put away Battlefield 3 and Crysis 2 as the standard.

The game play is nothing new, but very effective. You can shoot your way through in MOST cases (some mission require no alerting), or take a stealth like approach by marking your enemies, and picking them off one by one, with a very intricate skill tree system that unlocks Tatau (Not sure the spelling, but it's basically their way of unlocking tattoos) that give you special perks like being able to take down multiple enemies at once form above or below, or drag bodies as you takedown to hide them as to not alert others. This balance of your choice to attack makes the game stay fresh and exciting, with never a dull moment.

Far from a cookie-cutter FPS, this game has an AMAZING script.

Bought off Amazon services then uses Game Code thru Steam. Forces the install of UPlay which seems to be Ubisoft's version of web-based game manager used even though Steam is running. It also didn't allow the selection of install location, which is aggravating when it consumes 16-18 GB of your small SSD OS drive.

OK, as you might guess from my Amazon screen name, I like to play games. I play primarily PC games, and within that genre, I primarily play shooters although I like to mix it up with a good action RPG every so often (Witcher 2, Skyrim). Because I am a bit older than your average gamer, I have played an awful lot of shooters. I played the first Far Cry back in the day and loved it. It was truly open world, with intelligent AI. I salivated at the thought of Far Cry 2, and wept in disappointment because I thought it was just so bad. So, when I read about Far Cry 3 last year, I sort of went "meh." It sounded exactly like the Far Cry I played 10 years ago, and besides, the last one sucked. So I decided against getting it.

Then, I ran out of games and Amazon had a great sale. I picked this up for under $20. I figured it was an acceptable risk in case it was a poor game, or just a rehash of the original. Glad I was wrong in my expectations - this game is really, really good. I thought for sure I would detest the hunting side games, which are necessary to increase the size of your weapon holsters (so you can carry up to 4 weapons), and I thought the game would quickly get tedious. Nope.

The open world nature of this game is truly awe-inspiring. You travel among various islands, killing pirates who have wronged you and your friends. The weapons are great. The environment is even better. Once, I was trying to stealth up behind two enemies walking down a road. Suddenly, a tiger came out of no where and killed them both. There are random acts of awesome things like that every where. I have accidentally fallen off cliffs, landed in deep water, and found new places to explore.

Crysis 1 was one of the best FPS ever. Nothing ever since ever came close to it. Farcry 3 is one of few games that can challenge Crysis 1 in terms of both plot and graphics. I used to like Crysis 2 but now Farcry 3 renders Crysis 2 something "forgettable" in comparison.

For a game the story and character development is pretty darn good - one could probably make an feature animate out of it. The twist and turns, especially with how your character evolve from a kidnapped spoiled kid to a jungle warrior to a killing machine, is quite amazing.

In terms of graphics, I've to say this game is as close as you can get to reality in the year of 2013. At sunset the sky is absolutely beautiful. The fluidity and reflections off the water surface, the sun glare, etc is almost unreal. Quite frankly one can probably make a Hollywood jungle warfare animate using this engine, rendering in real time, and it would not be too far off from the very best.

The game is smooth enough at 1920x1200, Ultra setting. I ran it on a I7-2600K (OCed to 4.3GHz) with 16GB CL8 DDR3-1600, and EVGA FTW GTX670 4096MB (graphics core OC'ed to 1.2GHz ). Occasionally the game does slow down a bit but it definitely runs better than Crysis 1 on a 8800GT cica 2008.

Now I am looking forward to a Far Cry 4 much more than any Crysis follow-ons (not that there will be a Crysis 4 anyways). This is coming from someone with a copy of Crysis on a video game altar.
