I am probably close to 20 hours and I haven barely started the story missions and haven't even set foot on the lower island.

I think I've seen a couple posts from you with this similar kind of sentiment. From now on just realize you go through games faster than most and cut some hours off of what others have said.

32 hours for me. On top of all the missions, I found about 80 artifacts, all the letters from the lost, and plus had 4 extra missions that I got from preordering from Gamestop.

I am at around 17 hours And have not touched anything on the south island. So you got all the relics, lost letters as well?

30 hours 47 minutes.

All single player achievements except for 50 flamethrower kills and 25 rock distractions.

And left a few Wanted: Dead quests and a ton of Hunter quests undone.

Also skipped all of the Call of the Rakyat challenges after I got the achievement on the first one.

I'm getting more and more interested in purchasing this game...but the descriptions make it sound like Assassin's Creed on a tropical island. Is this true?

Joel H. says:
Isn't the gold trophy for relics only require you to get 60 or did i make that up?

I'd say a less rpg'ish fallout with stealth and driving.

Pretty much, but with shooting; and more RPG elements.

I've read something along the lines of "Assassin's Creed x Skyrim + guns = PROFIT!!!! er... Far Cry 3"

I'm getting really interested, too. I may do this game before Skyrim.

The bit I read about luring Komodo dragons into enemy encampments, or releasing caged tigers to wreak havoc just sounds like fun!

I'd say its a mix of dead island and just cause.

Ice King says:
It's very fun, you just need to make sure you can handle the animals you release on the camps when they're done clearing it out.
They can be more dangerous than just dealing with the people sometimes.

Is freeing animals easier to do end game? I've cleared out about half of the camps so far and not once have i gotten the animal releasing to go smoothly. Either i free the animal, it kills 1 guy, guards kill it, they go on with their day. Or i free animal, they slaughter it.. magically see me 100yards away and charge me setting off alarms. All of the no alert takeovers i've done i did by just throwing rocks and using takedowns. Stickin' with it though.

Scratchy says:
15ish hours for me and I kind of rushed it towards the end. Was fun killing animals and doing outposts at first but then it got boring and tedious and felt a lil bit forced. Whats the point in giving you these 2 massive islands to explore when you gotta dump inventory every 5 minutes or go out and hunt to increase capacity. That part could have been done better but its not like you can't beat the game with the bare minimum of stuff you have from the beginning tho. Glad to know that once you got to the second island you could free warp to mission without having to unlock checkpoints near it.

13 hours and 32 minutes (original poster) is ok (not the best time in the world but certainly not the worst). For potential buyers, Far Cry 3 has a LOT of gaming hours to enjoy, you can easy get 30 hours+ out of it if you do everything the game has to offer and take time to explore / not in a rush (the best way to play it imho). Even if you rush through it though it is still minimum 12 hours worth of great gaming.

I agree those ostrich birds (I love them!) they have no fear at all - bunch of psycho birds!
