((INTRO))

Far Cry 2 was, while commercially successful, divisive game by Ubisoft that failed to recapture the magic of the original PC exclusive Far Cry (not the various console spin-offs), while Crytek, the developers of Far Cry, moved on to Crysis that revived and improved upon the spirit of Far Cry under EA (Of course Crytek later ran into a similar dismay with Crysis 2).

After several botched attempts to rekindle the popularity of their old franchises such as Silent Hunter, Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell, alongside the annual milking-fest of Assassin's Creed and huge backlash of 'Always-Online' DRM fiasco, the name Ubisoft is not exactly synonymous with creative change and progress.

Far Cry 2 was far cry from 'Far Cry' not because the setting was changed from tropical jungle to African jungle, but because the game was a drag to play and never maintained the consistent flow with tension and excitement from gameplay. The color palette was washed out and heinously brown, the world felt lukewarm and monotonous. And realistic but ultimately tedious chores that emulated the real life like far drive travel methods, cars breaking down for maintenance, guns jamming, malaria and it was a good FPS but a disappointing game at the same time that forgot how to be a fun game.

Is Far Cry 3 any different from 'business as usual' approach by the developers slash publishers who's been doing just that for better part of the past 10 years? Let me just say it out loud; Far Cry 3 is exactly the kind of the first person shooter for people who enjoyed the original Far Cry and Crysis.

((THE GAME))

The game starts with action right away just like the first one instead of puking and passing out over and over like the second one.

The first Far Cry pretty much blindsided gamers when it came out in 2004. From an unknown studio, here was this game with stunning graphics (which still hold up, by the way), an original setting for a shooter (a tropical paradise) and a sandbox-style approach. Unfortunately, Far Cry 2 was a big letdown for most gamers. While the graphics were pretty, it felt bland and repetitive, and never really immersed you in the environment or story.

Far Cry represents a return to the roots of the first game, and adds a wealth of new features and option, adding to this First-Person Shooter a number of RPG elements. You can now conquer outposts and create safehouses, where you can buy guns and sell loot. The addition of a crafting feature (think Skyrim or World of Warcraft) adds the ability to make syringes, bigger gun holsters, bigger loot bags, etc. It's integrated with the hunting aspect of the game, which allows you to kill and skin most of the wildlife on the island. It's a nice addition, and the best part is that there is no real required order in which you have to do things. If you want to get the best guns right away, you can buy them right away, with cash you loot from corpses and chests. If you want to craft everything before starting the main mission storyline, you can. One of the best addition is the bow and arrow - silent, mostly one-shot kills are a ton of fun. That dovetails nicely into this game's emphasis on stealth. Many missions can be done your way: you can run in, Rambo style and blow everything up, but it's also feasible to skulk around the shadows and pick off the baddies one by one.

The main story is a mixed bag.

This is one amazing piece of software. Seldom have I seen a game where mostly every aspect is done so competently. Whether it be shooting, driving vehicles, hunting, stealth, A.I. or presentation, it excels at pretty much everything it sets out to do and combines all of these elements so seamlessly together that it leads to an incredibly immersive, tense experience and a game that's an outright blast to play from start to finish.

Farcry 3 places you in the shoes of Jason Brody, who has been kidnapped alongside his friends while on vacation on Rook Island to be sold into slavery by pirates. Jason escapes, his friends do not, and he sets out on a quest of self-discovery and vengeance to be able to get them back. That's pretty much all you need to know about the story and what the game's about and to say anymore would spoil a slightly above average narrative that's nevertheless well told with interesting, well-fleshed out characters (Vaas is awesome....Kefka has some competition). It's nothing extraordinary but it does the job and while it's not even close to the best cinema and literature have to offer, it does constitute one of the better efforts that gaming gives these days.

Gameplay consists of three main components: shooting/stealth, looting/selling, and hunting/crafting. It's very S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-ish in this respect and gives it more of an RPG flavor. Jason starts out very limited in what he can carry (barely any weapons, ammo, mines, c4, etc.) and it's required to venture out into the wilderness to gather animal skins and plants to create bigger pouches and also ingredients to formulate potions for syringes that hold a variety of effects.
