"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

As a fan of Far Cry 2 and a hater of Far Cry1, I loved this game. It was chock full of fun things to do, fun missions and great gameplay. The game is beautiful and often you find yourself just sitting there watching the world. I don't like multiplayer so I cant comment on that, but I would assume that none is still playing this online at this point (2016). But who cares, single player is where this game is at. Gameplay-wise, its a fantastic game. The game length is surprisingly short with not that many missions. 2/3 of your play time until the ending will be just exploring around and capturing outposts, doing small side missions, etc. The actual missions in the game only took me about 8 hours of gameplay time. The rest of the 38 hours was playing around. Sound is amazing and the controls are great also. I think that covers the game. A definite must-buy.
Far Cry 3 is a jewel, regardless of what critics may say. The antagonist is original and ruthless. The combat is intuitive and engaging. The environment is beautiful, lush, and open. There is something for everybody in this vast tropical getaway that turns quickly into a deadly environment of piracy and death. Do you like stealth? Do you like shooting? Do you like killing moves? Do you like vehicles? Or do you just want to do everything the game has to offer? You play the way you want when you want. It's pretty accurate to say Far Cry 3 is "Skyrim with guns," because it has a lot of those RPG elements and the open world feel. Some folks hate on the story for being racist, but I see that as unintentional and certainly not the point of the game. The same critics will make the same arguments against Tarzan and other similar types of stories. The whole premise is to be an unassuming young adult who is thrusted into a deadly environment where you must become a predator. By the end of the game, your transformation is complete and I believe Ubisoft Montreal did a great job ending the game. My only criticism is that the multiplayer was lackluster with a cookie cutter death match and poorly conceived coop that the next game rectifies. This game is worth playing and I'd highly recommend it for how all-encompassing the experience really is.
Who doesn't love being able to explore a island and finding all of the fun things you can do within it? Well thanks to Far Cry 3 you are able to get to do exactly that! The freedom of being able to explore all over the huge map was my personal favourite part of this amazing game. Whether it was going on a off-roading adventure or hunting the wildlife or flying around on a paraglider, I couldn't help but do it with a smile on my face! Although the story isn't the greatest part of the game, the gameplay more than makes up for it with smooth, easy to learn controls and combined with the great graphics that the game has to offer makes for a awesome experience.
Fun and enjoyable game. The shotting mechanics, feel good, from the bow all the way to the rifles. And the Story is quite well done, with a great antagonist, which many people, admire, saying he is one of the best, even later in the game, the story still goes at a good pace, introducing more characters, that are just as despicable as the main antagonist. My only issue with the game ,is that the main character, doesn't evolve at a pace one would expect. The Crafting adds a nice level of progression.
I had so much fun with game on ps3, so I re-purchased for pc and I am having a blast still. The story is great, it's simple and actually keeps you interested in playing still. There are tons to do in the open-world, hunt animals to help craft items to improve things. Explore, look for collectibles and other little things hidden around the tropical island. The color is great compared to Far Cry 2, I hated that about he last game but this is amazing! The graphics are still great and just absolutely beautiful. Animals are good, the mechanics in this are good, very fun game to play. I like taking out the outposts and then resetting them to keep playing. Mess with different weapons and try to find your best one you like. I love this game a lot and I hope you get it and enjoy it! It's really really good! Especially for the price now! I'll give an incredible score, because it's a fantastic game!
