"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

Very good game, the freedom to explore the island and to fulfill the missions as it suits you (stealth or rambo style) gives a different touch. Recommended if you like sandbox and fps, along with customization of weapons and skills.
The story? yah, great. Wonderful. Barely completely fell apart 2/3 of the way through at all. It's a Ubisoft sandbox attached to a good game. Possibly forcibly. You die if you kill civvies; you hunt animals with a bow, you climb towers for no good reason - it's assassins creed 3, but good. The bad: Boring towers, boring gunplay, boring stealth, mandatory stealth, awful boss fights. Yet I still loved it. Everything meshed together perfectly: all the mediocre elements combined to make a legitimately incredible game. The performance is nowhere near perfect, and some elements of the port indicate a lack of care, but overall the game looked amazing, and the framerate hits were justified by the amount of stuff on screen.
I got this game while it was on sale, since then I have spent lots of time playing it. Once I got the game I was already hyped for it, I loved it from the start, it really engages you into the game. When playing it I feel like i'm in the game for real. I love the story of this game, I have played the other parts of this game and this is my most favorite one. The graphics in this game are amazing considering that this game was released in 2012. The story is quite long with all the normal missions and some Deluxe Edition missions, even when you play all of them and finish the game completely you can play multiplayer matches with your friends, and you can go on community made maps and have lots of fun. Overall I really like this game and it's one of my favourite games of all time.
I have bought the deluxe edition of this game when it was on sale, I have played many hours since then, the game is very interesting, the graphics are amazing for the time it was released in. I have had many sleepless nights and have good memories. I recommend this game if you like shooters, good graphics and adventures. GL&HF
Do you love open world games? Do you love first person shooters? Do you love role playing games? This game has been dubbed "Skyrim with guns," and that's not too far off from the truth. Far Cry 3 is an amazing game. You go from being a typical middle class American to being transformed into the ultimate predator of the jungle taking on pirates and drug lords. My only criticism is that the online is very disappointing. The multiplayer is lackluster and the coop is halfbaked (thankfully Far Cry 4 fixed this). Other than that, this game is worth playing for the single player. I highly recommend it.
