Far Cry 3
A MUST BUY!!!!!
I purchased this game about a month, or so ago, and all I can say is; AMAZING!! I am a loooooong time gamer, and I have played, and completed almost all the major, (and not so major), titles out there, and this game was up there with the best of them, (names not required). This ip is so refreshing, because it's not just another clone, it stands completely on it's own, and it stands VERY tall. Like the previous review I would say it is a cross between Red Dead Redemption/Skyrim/COD, (online multiplayer side of things), but @ the same time it's nothing like those titles when it comes to the amazing story, and how things play out.
Huge props to Ubisoft on this one, because you would expect the usual, "not much different except the guns, etc", aspect of other big named title sequels+, but this game is not only an amazing 3rd installment, but it is such a fresh new experience that this game could easily stand on it's own 2 legs as a standalone title, Ubisoft, (which is known for blockbuster titles, Assassins Creed anyone, lol), brings an amazing twisting, and turning story, with amazing imagination, great fleshed out characters, and I truly believe they created this one, "from the gamers stand point, (a lot of titles claim it, but rarely deliver). Also, where other games lack in the online multiplayer, (I personally don't find AC's multiplayer very interesting, but that's just my 2 cents), this title takes the baton, breaks heads, takes names, and piles up the bodies!!
more focus,less bloat would have gone a long way
This game is a much better game than far cry 2.The graphics are quite good and there's plenty to do.The story is o.k but the only interesting character (Vas) is absent for much of the game.The rather clumsy control scheme also detracts from the gaming experience in that the controller seems to be overburdened. This game may be deeper but not nearly as smooth as say a "Red dead redemption" or the "Uncharted" series.This is the best Far cry yet but a few elements keep it from being a great experience.Still a must play.
p.s. ( i.m.o this would be better as a third-person game)
Leading up to the release date I was very excited to play this game and trust me this game beat my expectations which were pretty high to begin with. The visuals were spectacular, such good graphics. The open world format was perfect, there were soooo many things to explore like caves, temples, random buildings and outposts and you could explore and hunt for hours without even thinking about the main missions. The crafting system fits in nicely and you get the feel that you are on this island trying to survive and the crafting system helps you see that a bit. The levelling system is great as well and as you explore more skills you become stronger as a Rakat warrior (your tattoo gets larger on your arm as you discover more skills) and takedowns get to be more addicting as you progress. You get a variety of weapons including a bow which is fun to use for hunting and stealth purposes. You get to also change the colour of your weapon and can add attachments on to it such as scopes and silencers. The Radio towers add a nice touch bringing challenging climbing techniques to reach the top and unlock more areas of the map. The storyline is well driven and never seems to have a dual moment and the people you meet don't just feel like computerized characters, they feel like real people. The gameplay and sound are right on par as well. The multiplayer has some nice touches to it but it can feel like your typical COD multilayer after a while but it's a nice way to fool around with friends. The co-op campaign (2-4 players) is a great way to play with friends and cause rampage but the more players you have (up to 4) the better as it can be challenging and frustrating with fewer players, you have a limited area to move around in and stealth is much harder in co-op and often the objectives and missions get boring after a while as it seems like you'll be doing the same thing over and over. The map editor is still a nice mode to expand your imagination and create your own map and play in it with friends. This game get's it's excellent reviews and comments from the single player mode, that's what I bought it for and I would recommend this game to anyone because it's open world single player mode takes games like this to a new level.
This game is beautiful.
At first I was skeptic about this game as FarCry 2 wasn't the best game, but after a lot of my buddies informed be that this game was good, I decided I'd buy it and give it a shot. The game begins by throwing you right into the action, the game starts off with an amazing song that fits the game perfectly, then within 10 minutes your hopes are crushed by an unexpected event. This game just made me joy-puke my face off (Borderlands style), as all the villains in the game make you want to hate them so much, but at the same time you have to respect them as they are a good villain. The scenery, the size of the open world, and even the electronic music just fit so perfectly together. I'd recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a good fps that has a twist to it, and this game has balls.
This games is fun and amazing!
If your looking for a game to play for a long time and get your money's worth, then this is a game for you. The story line for the game is amazing and so is the game play. I guarantee you will love this game. :D
This Is A Award Winning Game
amazeing Graphics u could play this game for 50 hours or even forever it has an awesome gameplay 100
One of the most highly anticipated games this fall
I believe this game hasn't had enough attention due to the fact that halo, call of duty and borderlands have been the hype the whole time. But by analyzing each game including far cry 3, I can only say that ubisoft has gone well over the top this time and they deserve a lot more attention and credit that this truly beautiful game deserves. I cannot tell you how impressive this game looks, from the open world tropical environment to the shooting gameplay, it looks magnificent in every shape and form. This game will keep me on the edge of my seat the whole spring and summer once it comes out. we thank you ubisoft for your amazing work.
FarCry 3 Is A Winner!
Everyone of these games has been awesome! The first game for the PC was by far the best. I played through that game like 15 times. Now the second of the series was not as good by still worth playing! The graphics in 2 are great! The new game looks like a winner stunning graphics from the E3 demo. (SPOILER!!!) U get a composite Bow for a little bit of fun and a machete to boot! Game play looks as smooth as a baby's butt! Cry Engine has always been a force of nature. Look at Far cry on PC 6 years ago(Shook the very foundation of the game world!) I will be buying this game no question and u should tooo :) Thanks for reading and happy gaming
Gamers, I have watched the Farcry 3 trailer over 20 times and I am still thrilled by every second of it. It is an open world game, just like the previous games. The main character, Jason, is stuck in a crazy island with no civilization and every one in it is insane. There are many ways to play the game, you can kick the door open and shoot everyone up, or Call of Duty mode as I call it. You can grab a silenced pistol and a machete and kill everyone enemy silently, my faivorite way of getting things done. Not only that, there will be new abilities. For example, I think there will be skill points in the game, so that you could chose your best skill. You could also take cover using debris, and zipline. For sure, there will be many more great things and actions you could do in this game. I cannot wait untill it comes out. The website says February first, so lets hope so. Thank you for reading.
