Far Cry 3 was without doubt my favourite game of the year when I played it. If not for the lackluster multiplayer and lack of online players, it would be close to the perfect game. Firstly, the story is not only interesting, but you are introduced to some truly unique and unforgettable characters such as the modern-day pyscho pirate Vaas. The plot, however, is not at all linear. You are free to roam on a huge paradise island which is both beautiful and deadly. Whether you are silently assassinating guards in a hostile pirate compound, or patiently hunting a huge wild tiger, there's plenty of variety in the combat gameplay. Although the island is jungle throughout, there's evident diversity as you discover settlements, coves, beaches, ruins and caves with hidden treasures. The game also include a map editor which is a fantastic bonus allowing you to create maps to play online, although you will have to find friends to play with as the multiplayer is mostly abandoned. Altogether, this game will easily suck you in for many hours of entertainment, while completionists will enjoy exploring every area to find every collectable for hundreds of hours.
