Far Cry 3
Third party DRM: UplayThis 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

Great open world FPS experience.Spartan_117 | July 28, 2015 | See all Spartan_117's reviews »
"Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?" This game was sitting in my HDD for a long LONG time, finally got around to playing it. And I friggin loved it. Far Cry 3 is an immense open world/sandbox style FPS game taking place in a tropical island. The premise is that a group of friends, while on vacation, are kidnapped on this island by pirates. The protagonist, Jason, gets free of their hold and now must try to save them all. The story didn't interest me at first. Just felt like something tacked on to get you into the island and explore stuff. But after a while, it picked up the pace and got good. At one side, you had this quest to rescue your friends while on the other, you were fighting a psychological battle. In both ways, there was this satisfying presence of evolution and the more you played, the more apparent it became and more development the protagonist got. The friends remained uninteresting throughout though. It was the other side characters that help you along the way that made the story interesting. Most of them had great voice acting. Also, the villain(s) were great. I'll admit that I was disappointed in seeing that Vaas didn't had that many scenes in the game considering he was advertised like hell throughout. Now, the island was VAST. And really dense. There was tons and tons of stuff to do around every corner. It felt really alive as well. Great thing about this game was that you had mostly full freedom to deal with enemies. Some times I used stealth, sometimes natural elements, sometimes I just rushed it guns blazing. One really annoying thing though was that enemy A.I kept firing at me even if there is a smoke/fire in between and I cannot see them. This often made me to not use fire. There were some true breakthrough points in the game. Two of my favourites were burning weed farm while listening to 'Skrillex' and riding a chopper with 'Flight of the valkyrie' being played. Truly awesome moments. Graphically, the game looked good and surely had its moments. Tropical setting made for some awesome sightings. The draw distance wasn't too shabby either. Climbing a tower and just looking around always felt mesmerizing. Soundtrack was great. It varied a lot too. Somber, sad and/or personal scenes had beautiful similar score while fighting/action scenes had fast paced adrenaline pumping music. A great open world FPS experience. Had a lot of fun with it. Definitely a must for ever gamer.

One of my favorite storylines in a game, with possibly my favorite villain as well. Vaas' insanity adds so much depth and intrigue to the game in my opinion. Plus the world is huge and a lot of fun to explore. It's even ore interesting because not only does the game's bad guys pose a threat to you, but the diverse wildlife poses a threat as well, with the possibility of being mauled by a tiger or be causally swimming in the ocean when suddenly you're having to fight off a shark. I found this to be a great game and would definitely recommend it.
A drug-fueled spiral into the abyssZaggeta | May 8, 2015 | See all Zaggeta's reviews »
I was never a fan of the previous Far Cry games, but after advise by a friend, I purchased Far Cry 3 and didn't regret it. Ubisoft has managed to create an amazing blend of free form, semi-linear storytelling and action. The world is your playground and you can feel it. There are enough activities from hunting and poker to assassinations and sieges to keep you busy for a long while. The story is also amazing, for the most party, with a great villain (and slightly less great villain) and amazing scenes which sets the pace of a drug-fueled descent into madness. For first person action fans, this is a must buy.
Definately my "Game of the Year 2013"mhouse1 | Dec. 30, 2014 | See all mhouse1's reviews »
With the new Far Cry 4 hitting the charts of this years gaming sells, ive decided to take a look back at my favourite game of the year 2013. After playing Far Cry 4 i have to admit that it is (especially in graphics, etc) a much better game than Far Cry 3 (hence the "low" rating). If you asked me last year i wouldve said its an easy 99/100. It doesnt have many bugs (at least i didnt encounter (nearly) any. It looks great still. It feels good. The story is reasonable and told in a nice way, eventho its not the most innovative one. The gamestyle is good and feels fluid. At times you could get lost in the whole world this game creates.On top of it a nice twist in the end (i did have some discussions with my friends about what decision was the better one). I really enjoyed and still enjoy playing this game. If its on a sale or if you do have the spare money, DO buy it. But if you think it will be the same as Far Cry 4, you might get disappointed.
One of my all time favouritesFreeze256 | Nov. 28, 2014 | See all Freeze256's reviews »
The game is great.For me i love open world games but ubisoft did not only add that.The story is pretty good but thats not the best thing about this game.The characters are really good and i wont be forgetting them any time soon.The side quests are the best thing, one second i'm doing the main mission and the other im hunting some animal for loot.Theres a wide variety of guns and lots of customisation options for them.The map, its pretty big i never felt bored playing this game.One of the only flaws i have with it is the perks.They seem useless and just not interesting, yes they do let u do some more things but why not just add that from the beginning?If you think thats a lot of stuff they didn't stop there, theres even a 4 player coop with some bonus missions.Just when u think u heard all of it theres even a multiplayer, the game is not perfect but its pretty awesome and its one of my favourites definitely give it a try u might find something u like, i wasted so much of my time on this game.
