Summary: Get it for this price and put Ziggy's Mod on it and you will thank me.
Pros: Simply best open world sandbox type game around. Use Ziggys Mod at Nexus to make all the bad stuff go away on HUD and GUI things after first playthru, amazing when you play game like you are there and no interference from tips and guides. Try his hardcore master setting, it is a challenge, you can play the game as you like, it is your choice with his mod.
Summary: UPLAY IS NOT THAT BAD. GET OVER IT. Okay seriously, everyone said the same thing about Steam when it first came out, and now look at it: everybody's darling. Uplay works fine. And for DRM, it's leaps and bounds beyond SecuROM. Also I've always liked the Upoint system where occasional achievements give you access to Mp3s, wallpapers, and in game toys like an extra gun or car. It's fun. Do I like the idea of double DRM?
Summary: After being stunned by the original Far Cry and then abandoning Far Cry 2 mid way through the game I had all but given up on the franchise. Far Cry 2's graphics were cutting edge at the time, but the environment was too open. So much time was spent driving from place to place that it got very monotonous very fast. Far Cry 3 is a whole new beast. It's like the took the freedom of Far Cry 2 and combined it with the story progression of the original Far Cry.
