Far Cry 3 (NA)
This game requires a free UPLAY account to play.
"Far Cry 3 is important for the same reason as Far Cry 2. It's a shooter that considers shooters thoughtfully, both in the way they're designed and the way we play them, and then asks us to do the same." - IGN.com
"All of it is entertaining, and it gives you a sense that the island is little more than your plaything- a feeling that's only emphasized as your skills increase and you become a badass cross between Turok and Rambo. It's for that reason that Far Cry 3 comes across as a fresh experience and ranks up there as one of the best shooters of 2012." - worthplaying.com

Part of me wants to hate on Far Cry 3, because of its boring characters and lacklustre storyline, which wavers between tedious and mildly offensive. King Solomon's Mine is probably more culturally sensitive. That being said, Far Cry 3 is a fun maybe even addictive game, particularly if you enjoy free roaming exploration mixed with tense combat.
What Far Cry 3 does absolutely right is give the sense that the player is a complete badass guerrilla warrior. Combat, particularly open world encounters such as base capture, assassination, patrol ambush, and hunting, is open to creativity and rewards elegance. You're also encouraged to take complete advantage of terrain, wild animals, flaming wrecks, and other features of the jungle to whittle down numerically superior foes. Add in customisable weapons and an impressive skill tree that facilitates glorious cinematic combat sequences without relying on quick time events and you'll feel like the stealthy alpha predator of this island paradise.

Great story with twists and turns.
Great open world adventure lets you play missions when you want not tied to a linear experience.
Weapons are fun to play with and most of them can be upgraded.
Hunting for pelts and plants offer a great way to upgrade your adventures, or if feel lucky don't and play with limits on carry capacity or lack of heals, play how you want.
Buy this game and have fun
In Love With This Game!JerDude0711 | Aug. 6, 2014 | See all JerDude0711's reviews »
I just got a brand new PC and this is the game I've been addicted to! I love the feel of the engine, the way the guns shoot, movement, etc. I've cranked the graphics to it's highest and it looks gorgeous! As far as free roam goes there is quite a lot to do, while it is a bit repetive (towers, liberating villages) I still love it! Also the world is huge, a lot of the time I just go hunting!
I picked this game up in anticipation for Far Cry 4 and because of play 3, I am super hyped for 4!

Far Cry 3 is a fantastic leap forward in the Far Cry franchise with its sprawling and interesting open world, as well as its characters who for the most part have a depth usually not scene in the average game. The story is a bit cliched, with the protagonist going from a spoiled 20 something to an expert killer/hunter, but all in all this game is fantastic. The gun play is another solid aspect that adds very much to the games value. The guns, for the most part, feel powerful and effective, and as such, a head shot has a meaty feel to it. Overall, this is an experience not to be missed that I can't recommend enough.

The story grabs you from the beginning, you can see how Jason evolves, gaining experience, integrating with the island and everything in it. The campaign is long but is not boring, and adding the many quests you can releasing towers and position , we will have many hours of entertainment! A graphic aspect very well done, day, night, rain, storms, spectacular sunrises. Many weapons to choose from bows, pistols, shotguns, sniper rifles, flamethrowers, missile launchers and thousands more, many of these modifiable. Besides all this features , it also has cooperative and competitive online mode, making Far Cry 3 one of the most complete games ever!
