  • Summary: This game is too busy with collecting things. It is more like a scavenger hunt. FarCry was great and FarCry2 was even better. So far I'm not impressed with FarCry3.

Too glitchy for me

Amazon Customer "Ken", Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: By the time I ordered this, it was on its 4th patch. It kept becoming nonresponsive. I uninstalled and then downloaded the game from the Ubisoft site. I got further into the game but.nothing would happen when I tried to fast travel. When that happened my gpu temperature went up to 98 C. Since my 2 previous games were Crysis 3 and AC 4 which went without problems, I decided no game is worth ruining my AMD 7970's so I returned this game.

Technical issues are detracting from the game

Dan, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Launching the game is proving difficult to impossible. When launching, I'm presented with no evidence that the game is running although the uplay loader acts as if it has launched successfully. If I then flip over to Steam, I'm told that the game has already launched with no way to close the application. This seems to be a common issue based on forum posts I've read, so I'm less willing to chalk it up to an avoidable software issue on my end.

De-evolution of the HUD

kmfdm, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Disappointing "sandbox" shooter in almost every aspect. Graphics are fairly behind its 5 year old predecessor, the atmosphere is reduced to nothing and the entire game feels like a theme park with attraction behind every tree. And don't get me started about the HUD; what FC3 presents us is a devolution of the genre. Huge ugly boxes notifying me REPEATEDLY about the same thing over and over again; everything has large icons, huge font, taking space all over the display.

A Downgrade from Far Cry & Far cry 2

Bobg1957, Bestbuy
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Far Cry 3 has potential if big changes are made. The big irritation is you cannot save the game and return to the same place.
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: UBI Control of Game

A bit disappointing

R. Halpert, Amazon

  • Summary: I have played all the FarCry editions and loved them. Until this latest version....way too many cut scenes, the "Uplay" interface stinks.....IMHO they went a bit overboard. Should have left well enough alone......

Didn't add very much

  • Summary: I know its only $10 but for what it gives you I just wasn't that thrilled. I really loved the game and was excited to play more content but was ultimately disappointed.

Looks good but buggy and annoying

Tkmad, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: Personally, in a computer game I would much rather have a good story and good voice acting than awesome scenery. That being said, Far Cry 3 does have excellent graphics and a very well made island map. My problems start with the story that is pretty much the same as all the other games of this type. Bad guys kidnap you or your friends/family, you escape your bondage then seek revenge etc... Nothing new or exciting. Then there are the bugs.

No CD Key!?!?

Wmax90, Amazon
3 February 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this (2/3/2013) and have yet to receive a CD Key from Amazon via email or thru the "Games and Software Library" Would STRONGLY suggest purchase from another vender if you want to play the game immediately after download
