Far Cry 3
simply seven letters: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
I AM IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME, THE CO-OP, THE MULTIPLAYER, AND THE SINGLEPLAYER!!!!!!! this game is just a piece of art
Best Game Ever
This is the best video game I have ever played. Their is nothing wrong with this game. Before I played this game I thought Skyrim was the best game. After playing this, every game including Skyrim looks like crud.
Great Game Highly Recommend
Far Cry 3 is an amazing game with a great story line, an amazing villan, and amazing graphics. would recommend to all my friends
This was sooo goood. I really loved the map-editor. I didn't like how you couldn't play co-op on it without having LIVE. :( mine expired about a month ago.
Open-world goodness with tons to do and see
Far Cry is, in a word, "sweet." It gives you a HUGE map, loads it up with tons of beautiful places to go and fun things to do... the story is actually not burdensome despite how it may appear to some at the very beginning... you gets lots of fun toys of destruction (oh yeah, fire propagation is back..... thus you start a fire in the brush and soon you've got a REALLY big fire; like in Far Cry 2), it's really hard to find enough good things to say about Far Cry 3.
Basically this takes place on a couple of tropical islands in the South Pacific Ocean... you have a main plot-line to advance but you can choose to either do this, do one of the many, many side quests/item collection tasks scattered throughout the islands, or you can free-roam and explore one of the coolest locations I've seen in a game. The graphics in general are really good but the islands themselves are GORGEOUS!! Wandering around finding hidden lakes, soaring waterfalls, hidden caves, old WWII bunkers... the island itself becomes a character in a way. It's not quite Bioshock's "Rapture"... I'd perhaps compare it to New York from Crysis 2 (sorry, haven't picked up Crysis 3 yet so can't compare that). Sure, it's not post-apocalyptic like Crysis, but it's the same in that you'll consistently stop and gawk at some of the amazing scenery. Far Cry's weather effects and day/night cycles heighten this, as you'll see when you first run across a waterfall draining into a lake in the jungle with slight rain coming down, or the sun rising or setting as you stare out over the ocean. The music is used rarely but to good effect and the sound effects are good... it's just that the visuals of the island steal the show.
The gameplay is fun and tight, shooting feels fun and the multitude of weapons are a joy to blast through the island with. There is an XP system where you get experience for tasks/kills and upgrade your character through 3 skill trees. You have to do some of the Story Missions to fully unlock the skill trees, but you'll have the whole thing unlocked with LOADS of game to spare.... depending on how much side stuff you do in the beginning I'd estimate you'll have a good 80% of the total game content left after you get the skill trees fully unlocked. The whole island is basically a big sandbox, giving you freedom to do whatever, whenever. The missions/tasks give you this same freedom. You can sneak around doing stealth-kills, snipe from long range, lob Molotov Cocktails and burn the place down.... the huge areas and large variety of weaponry (along with how you develop your character's skill points) allow for lots of options.
Far Cry 3 is just a lot of fun. Even if you ignore all of the optional side quests/challenges and the main quest you'll still find lots of things to occupy your time on these amazing looking islands. The complaints many had about Far Cry 2 have all been fixed (enemy re-spawn points that couldn't be captured, weapons breaking, not a lot of side quests/diversions) and this game is about as bug-free as you can get (ESPECIALLY for an open-world game). With the recent price-drop I'd grab this game immediately.... even if the genre doesn't sound like your thing: this game is good enough to convert people.
This game in one word is AMAZING! There are very few games out there like this one that evolves open features and weaponry like Far Cry 3. Based on an island that your friends have been taken captive and you have to rescue them while facing pirates keeps you entertained and on your toes the whole time. I purchased this game when it was 29.99 and let me say that it has to be the best bang for my buck in a long time since fallout: new vegas GOTY. If you like FPS games but also love the features of leveling up and selecting skills from different tress like Skyrim you'll enjoy this game to the fullest. Best hands down solid gameplay the whole time definitely should go get it if your into Action - RPGs
Favorite game ive ever bought
This game has amazing gameplay, graphics and have the greatest villain EVER! Vaas! amazing story and it never gets old
An Amazing Game
This game is definitely a challenge to 100%, for any gamer. There a plenty of side missions to cover up a particularly short story line. I have already recommended it to three friends of mine and they say they love it.
New Far cry fan!
Never played a game in this series and with all the hype I had to pick this game up and it did not disappoint! The story is pretty good and long depending on how you decide to play the game. If you go to outposts to liberate them you can be very methodical by putting out Mines and C4 to set traps and snares which make for a more interesting game play. The weapon selections are nice! You can carry a lot of them at one time which is cool because sometimes you need stealth and other times you need Rocket Launchers and Flame throwers...lol Its a very detailed game and reminded me a lot of Red Dead Redemption though not quite as good though but close. The graphics are good at times and then they drop off at other times. Not really sure why that happens but it does. The story at points will make you roll your eyes but just endure it because it gets better. The coop needs a little work but is still fun when playing with friends. This game is a keeper like Red Dead! You need to pick this game up for your collection. Its one of those games that willl keep you coming back for more and more...
I really enjoyed this game a lot of cool ways to get around great characters you can hunt animals which is cool the gameplay is good a lot of stealth situations which are really fun stealth weapons my favorite is the bow you can use fire and explosive arrows
