Excerpt: Embrace Insanity "Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?" These words of satire from Far Cry's villain, Vaas prove to be more ironic than intended. Vaas demonstrates to you in one of Far Cry 3's most powerful scenes that the definition is in fact doing the same thing over and over (and over) again.

Conclusion: Far Cry 3 is a fantastic game overall that we can highly recommend to almost any shooter fan. It takes fantastic shooting gameplay and sets you loose in an open world where you are free to explore and progress the story, as well as your own abilities, at your own pace.

Conclusion: Far Cry 3 explores the world of Rook Island, a tropical locale that seems like a great vacation spot until you get there and have to fight for your life. It explores how a man can go from normal everyday living to a monster who relishes killing people, but in the back of his mind he’s doing it for a reason.
