Far Cry 3 is an open-world, first-peron shooter that allows you to use a variety of weapons and approach missions using a variety of tactics. If you played Far Cry 2, and liked it even a little, Far Cry 3 will make your head explode. Gone are the elements that made FC2 a slog. You can fast-travel more easily. The terrain is more breachable, and the game autosaves. Hence, the pace of Far Cry 3 moves along at a nice clip. Not only is does the game provide a variety of weapons and upgrades, there are also a lot of takedowns and skill upgrades you can use to further tailor your experience to your preferred style of gameplay. There are also tons of side missions that prove to be more fun than tedious (e.g. Find a guy and kill him with your knife).

The storyline is one familiar to videogame mythos--but clear and well written: You and your friends have been captured by pirates. Your brother is killed while you and he escape. You're found by some indigenous warriors who help you badassify so you can free your enslaved friends and avenge your brother's death.

But the overwhelming feeling I got while playing FC3 was that the people making the game really took the time to make sure that the game is fun. That may sound like a platitude, but if you've played even a few games, you'll know what I mean. Some games are groundbreaking and beautiful and all that (LA Noire, Assassin's Creed 3), but they aren't really that fun to play.. FC3 not only looks beautiful, but it's addictively fun to play.
