Things I like:
1. Graphics - very nice graphics
2. Fast Travel - although there isn't a lot of spots to fast travel to, there are enough to break up the map to reduce long travel. Game world is beautiful and there is hidden loot and collectibles strewn about, so if you have to travel, it isn't a complete wast of time.
3. Stealth - Stealth and how AIs react to it works great. You can hide in shadow and in cover and they will not notice you. They won't notice you until you make some sort of noise that is within their area of detection. Even if they hear it, they do not necessary catch you, they start to search for you in the general direction of said noise. You also have an unlimited supply of rocks to help lead them away. If they see a body, mobs start to fan out looking for the culprit, instead of them all heading in your direction even though you did not provide a tell.
4. Combat - Very smooth combat. AIs are smart, but not clairvoyant. Very easy to do guerilla type tactics to run in and shoot, then blend into the shadows attacking from a different direction. Also there is additional strategy such as attacking a base, you can open up animal cages in hopes the animals will attack the mobs.
5. mini-games - poker, knife throwing, races, time challenges, etc. They have a ton of mini games that are fun to play.Read more ›
Story-90/100 (Exciting Plot Anchored by an great cast of characters)
Sound-95/100 (Excellent Voice Acting, music, and sound effects)
Game Play-100/100 (Utterly Intoxicating sandbox style shooter with echos of open world role-playing games)
Multi-player-30/50 (Generic, boring Multi-Player. I'd recommend against buying Far Cry 3 if you were solely interested in multi-player)
Lasting Appeal-100/100 (With all the stuff to do, you can easily spend around 40 hours or so. Not to mention it's a game you WILL want to play more than once)
If Far Cry 3 has taught me anything, it's the fact that the FPS genre is far from dead. Yes, the genre is over cluttered these days, but there are those certain titles within the industry that aim to provide the genre with innovation and excitement. Far Cry 3 is one of those games. Far Cry 3 finds its own identity through its own niche gaming experience. Even better, Far Cry 3 ends up being even more ambitious and unique than Far Cry 2, while being absent of the big missteps that plagued the second game. While Far Cry 3 is yet another FPS that features worthless MP, its single player is worth the price alone. For me, it's definitely the best in the Far Cry series, as well as one of the few FPS you should care about in 2012 regardless of your genre preferences.
Far Cry 3's story has certainly been one of its tantalizing aspects all throughout the game's numerous previews. The plot itself isn't going to turns head by itself, but its characters drive the plot to a point where every action has weight, and everything is shrouded in thick human vice.Read more ›
And then Far Cry 3. I approached with caution... Poked the disc with a stick a few times... Is this one going to bite my a$$ like the last one did? I mean, Far Cry 2 was technically impressive. Gorgeous graphics, a ton of content, but oh my GOD - driving from location to location and constantly getting stuck in little camps with enemies that respawned the moment you were out of eye-sight... It was a good idea on paper, but the game itself frustrated you long before you could finish it. What bad ideas would carry over into the third installment??
Short answer: None.
Your character no longer suffers from a useless illness that requires medicine every hour of play while adding no actual gameplay elements. There are enemy installments, but you can actually clear them out - PERMANENTLY - and gain a new place to swap weapons, load up on ammo, and even FAST TRAVEL TO (Hallelujia...) And... Oh yeah - you can fast travel!
Far Cry 3 is one of those games that for the one or two Amazon customers who might have read my other reviews, will know that I love because it causes players to ask themselves, "What do I want to do next?" You literally have to strategize in this game - and not just as far as "How do I want to kill this particular bad guy?" or "How do I beat this mission?" For example, in my previous play session, I needed to hunt an animal because I needed it's skin to craft a new ammo pouch...Read more ›

Awesome game! Really fun the first time you go through it. The game has some repeatability to it, but certainly not quite as much as other RPG's I've played in the past (e.g. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Michele Schap
