Far Cry 3 – Review (360, PS3, PC)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It says something about games writers’ states of mind when they come up with characters like the ones you’ll meet in Far Cry 3. Straight away Ubisoft sets the tone to dark and nasty with a sun- and alcohol-drenched vacation that goes disturbingly wrong, and tosses you into an island paradise to carve your way back into the light. Who you are at the beginning is going to differ greatly from what emerges on the other side.

  • Excerpt: The Far Cry franchise has struggled to find its exact place in the world of shooters. Far Cry 3 is no exception, bringing back the lush environments of the first game and the spin-off series, the shooting and fire propagation mechanics of the second game, and a few tricks and elements from other recent games. The end result is an enjoyable, if tonally dissonant, game.

  • Conclusion: “Do you know the definition of…”, ah hell, is it really worth repeating? After countless ads pegging Far Cry 3 for the theme of “insanity”, I’m happy to share it fits the title perfectly, but sadly, I’m not quite sure in the way the developers intended. Meeting the criteria for the franchise (jungles, guns, wild animals), FC3 follows a group of friends during a vacation on an island in the pacific that takes a turn for the worst when crazy pirates kidnap them… and I mean...

  • Excerpt: Within ten minutes of Far Cry 3 's cinematic opening, I stole a jeep, drove to the top of the highest mountain I could find, sailed down towards the ocean on a hang glider, proceeded to jump on a jet ski, jumped into the ocean and punched a shark. Do I have your attention now?

  • Conclusion: Far Cry 3 is the type of emergent open-world shooter that only current-generation technology can accomplish, but its campaign is filled with stale ideas. Its ambitious framework and strong first impression write a lot of checks that it can’t cash, especially when it comes to the lackluster story mode. Luckily, that is only a small third of the complete package.

Hooked Gamers
6 December 2012
  • Conclusion: As a fan of inventive storytelling and immersion, the best compliment I can afford Far Cry 3 is that despite coming up short on both accounts, it is a remarkable achievement in contemporary video gaming, one that no serious gamer can choose to skip out on. Far Cry 3 may be late in the race, but it is a very serious contender for the game of the year. Welcome to the jungle.
  • Pros: Lush visuals, truly open-ended gameplay, no skill point starvation, a plethora of activities and missions to engage in, emergent gameplay, cool skill-tree, outpost captures are awesome
  • Cons: Illogical at times, story starts strong but stagnates quickly, infrequently quirky AI

Review: Far Cry 3 is an insane(ly) fun, violent, open world romp

  • Excerpt: This year at PAX and at E3, the Far Cry 3 booth urged folks to either shave their hair into a mohawk, to resemble the main villain Vaas, or to get a tribal tattoo, resembling the one that the main protagonist Jason has, in order to score a free copy of the game. In my mind I thought, in no way is a permanent tattoo, or even a month looking like a jackass worth a free copy of Far Cry 3 . I am now eating those words.

  • Excerpt: Even when Far Cry 3's story eventually falls short of its promising start, you won't have as much fun hunting tigers, crashing hang gliders, and stabbing pirates in any other game.
