Summary: This game is not bad. That said, I don't have enough time for middling to good games. If I watch an ok movie, I've lost an hour and a half of my life; but if I play an ok game I just wasted hours and hours of my time to be mildly amused. That's just not acceptable. I'm only reviewing the story mode, and I didn't play too far in. Thankfully, I read a spoiler review. I'm so glad I didn't stick around until the end! First off, the game play is fine.
Summary: This is a great game in terms of gameplay, graphics and all the things you are able to do in the game like hunting and taking over outposts, so there's that. Then there is the story and characters of the game, this is where it's not so great. After putting in over 30 hours into this game i can't help but feel disappointed by it. What we know is that a bunch of friends go skydiving and land on rook island, and from there get kidnapped by the pirates on the island.
Summary: I will start by saying this game is adult themed. Consider that before your purchase. The graphics are pretty wonderful. I liked the rendering and the artwork is pretty fun. The story is okay. It's not entirely believable, but it's okay. The gameplay is where the game shines. The shooting and the skill system work out well together and it all flows together very well. The biggest problems with the game are somewhat minor.
Summary: 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.
Summary: As a huge fan of FC2, I was eagerly awaiting this title... I was happy to see aspects of the original carried forward, i.e. "open world," however this all negates itself when you follow the story line (accept a mission). The open world concept goes out the window and you will be forced to perform the mission EXACTLY as it's programmed in the game.
Summary: This game was very disappointing. I was expecting more sense I was a huge fan of FC1 & FC2. Story - The story when it first started out was great, and got me all pumped up, but as I played through the game it got progressively worse. You get 38 short missions, shallow characters, and a terrible ending (imo worst video game ending ever, left me with a huge frown). The campaign really got me, I was expecting many more missions like FC2 where it took you 2 months to beat.
Summary: Firstly I love the open world aspect and the overal gameplay of Far Cry 3, what they got wrong in Far Cry 2 has all been corrected and incredibly improved in this iteration. The world is vibrant and engaging, the only complaint in this department is the wildlife seems a little aggressive, nothing like trying to attack an outpost while simultaneously being attacked by a herd of angry pigs from behind.
