A beautiful follow up to FC2, magnificently better graphics, sound, and overall gameplay.
A diverse and colorful environment with a massive landscape, filled with interactive, aggressive wildlife! (boars, bears, jaguars, even sharks and alligators)
more, better, customizable, camouflage-selectable weapons. Faster, bigger, larger selection of vehicles.
Smarter, stronger AI (compared to Farcry 2), with more varieties in the types of enemies.
A new, complex, combat upgrading/leveling system.
Significantly better animations and cut scenes. A massive selection of small missions/tasks scattered around the map including hunting, poker, fighting, and racing.
I rarely award 10/10, but given the extremely nice job that this game has done compared to the first and second installment, I believe it deserves a full rating. Everything that was missing and anything that could have been better about the last games were perfected in this one. I saw no bugs and even the load times were removed or reduced to almost nothing.

by lolLord BEST GAME I HAVE PLAYED!!!
This is by far the best game i have ever played in my life, it is so addictive and the story line and graphics is amazing, i was just playing it before i wrote this review, this game excels in graphics and the fact that you have so much more than the main story with countless side missions and stuff to do and kill! It feels like Dead Island( No Zombies of course), Skyrim, and Call of Duty all combined! Overall you need to buy this game right now or your gonna be sorry you missed out!

Rated 10 out of 10 by Mickey13 Best Game I Have Ever Played!!!
I have played hundreds of games and this game blows all of them out of the water. It tops GTA, Red Dead, COD...EVERYTHING!!!! The landscape is beyond enormous and for how big it is the graphics are the best I have seen in any game hands down. I played Farcry 2 and it was garbage! The makers clearly listened to all the bad reviews for FC2 before making FC3 because this game is literally flawless. If u don't have fun playing this there is seriously something the matter with u. Comparing this to Skyrim or AC3 is a joke because both Skyrim and AC3 have terrible laggy gameplay and boring stories. I have less respect for gameinformer just because they gave this a 9/10 but gave AC3 a 9.5/10. I have both games and I can tell u that FC3 makes AC3 look like a 3/10. This better win GOTY because no one has ever made a game as in depth and insanely addicting as this game!! I really hope they release some DLC for this game kinda like Undead nightmare so as to keep the fun going for years.

List of some stuff to do:
Sandbox editor with various AI
Large Co-op campaign that includes splitscreen
Online with optional splitscreen
Explore the island with many forms of transportation
Fly in your wing suit
Complete many side quests
Earn some uplay stuff (Pistol, loot mission, tattoo pack, and an exclusive theme)
Find every item in the game
Wash, rinse, and repeat single player
Issues with the game:
Health & Crafting system is very bad
Grass does not flatten when driven over unlike FC2
Not a lot of weapon customization in single unlike the multiplayer
Not enough music to drive to
Needs more weapons
No loot variation
Map editor is medium sized, only allows 4 textures, and does not have terrain skyboxes.
They seriously added a facebook bragging option
Must sign up for uplay and pay for an online passport though I don't see many online players
No new game+
No bullet physics (ballistics).
No insanity hard mode for single player
Map editor needs a co-op/ story line editor
Rated 10 out of 10 by spicycarrot Definitely A Game Everyone Should Own!
Far Cry 3 is an open world, FPS game made by Ubisoft. You play as the character Jason Brody, who is trying to find and rescue all his friends after they are captured by the insane pirate lord named Vaas. "Did I ever tell you the definition... of insanity?" -Vaas. Overall, I really enjoyed this game. The storyline has not gotten old yet, and I've had it for about 3 weeks now. There are always so many different things to do, for example: go hunting, capture radio towers to unlock more of the map (kind of like Assassin's Creed), take over outposts, unlock different weapons, find ancient Relics, etc. The graphics are pretty good and the the open world lets you explore anything and everything. One of my favorite things about the game is the weapons and the weapon customization. If you have a Uplay account, you will be able to unlock certain things in the game, like a signature gun, an extra mission, new tatoos, and a Far Cry 3 theme! I would definitely recommend this game to anyone looking for a fun, appealing game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by darknessdweller Great game with an abrupt ending..
This game is fantastic story based games with a engaging plot, and fun side quests, humour, and what surprised me was very well thought out placing of music for certain missions. Like a lot of Ubisoft games, you have to gain territory (For example Borgia Towers in the Assassin's Creed Ezio story) and expand your map (Leap of Faith events in Assassin's Creed). The game was very fun to play, and definitely worth the play through especially if you love fire or blowing things up, which as I mentioned a bit ago with music placement, one of the missions is entirely about burning and they place a song that fits into the mission perfectly. I personally was a little bit upset with the ending. You have the option to choose between 2 different was it goes, and whichever you choose, pretty much leaves a 2 minute cut scene and it's over, and when you get that point, it's kind of like a situation where you expecting more, but it was just done.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Krafty An Instant Blockbuster
After watching the previews its easy to see that this will be an instant Blockbuster. Like any movie here are a group of tourists whose vacation gets sabatoged by a bunch of psychos, add special effects, nice gunplay on a beautiful beach sandbox and the possibilities are endless. I am really looking forward to seeing Far Cry 3 deliver, as avid FPS, RPG, and MMO player I beliver this game will set itself apart from the monotony of the battlefield and who doesnt like a game where the hunters suddenly become the hunted, paradigm shifts and great storytelling is what I've come to expect from the Far Cry series to date. I believe this game will be money well spent especially with the acclaim it got at E3, and potentially a contender for GOTY (Game of The Year). I would recommend you guys to check out the Far Cry 3 official website to check out some of the cool stuff they've got there and know that this is an approved Krafty Preview.
Rated 6 out of 10 by SheriffSpooksy It wasn't terrible.
Far Cry 3 was good, but not great. I would wait to buy it, maybe once the price drops. The game is pretty, but that's not enough to make the game good. The things I didn't like about the game aren't enough to say don't buy it. Half of the game is all cut scenes. The map might be big but a lot of the game can get pretty repetitive, I also didn't like that there was a lot of parts of the game that requires you to be stealthy which I don't get. I also don't get the main character, he's a rich California kid who can kill an entire army of pirates and a private army by himself, as soon as the game starts. Overall I would say to rent this game until it's price gets dropped, or I guess you could go spend $60 on a game that's really only worth $40. I also don't understand all of the people saying that this game is Skyrim with guns. It is nothing like Skyrim. That's like saying that GTA IV is like Skyrim with guns.
