"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

The first Far Cry was a weird game. I liked it, and i wasn't alone in that, but it was always strange, why a linear shooter had such a big-big map, you could easily explore. Flash forward a few years, and we got this masterpiece. The map is humongous, but this time, you can actually do stuff at the most part of it. There are enemies to fight, places to explore, and dangerous animals you can poke with a stick, and wonder where your legs gone. In order, to eliminate the army of hostile mercs, you have a large variety of guns, all of which can be upgraded, plus at the second half of the game you have a gliding suit, that really comes in handy getting around. The graphics are breathtaking, if the island wasn't full of things to kill me, i'd almost wished to be there myself. My only problem, is the lackluster boss fights. Aster what they put your character through, there should've been an epic showdown, or a chance, to organize then a ridiculously embarrassing death, like every other enemy in the game. Anything, but a blackout/quick time event.
Nice open world experience with the gigantic and beautiful world of kyrat. I would say this is not as good as far cry 3 but still should be played. Storyline is pretty nice, optimization sucks a bit, missions are quite good. so wouldnt regret your time playing it. Fun most of times. In my opinion outpost liberating sucks not as good as far cry 3. stealth approach not good too. Graphics slightly better.. So yeah its quite good but as good as we want.
Answer: It's playing this game and not laughing at the fact that a tiger just took down a whole settlement of pirates. Also, glide suit.
Rarely can an open world game entertain me for hours even after completing every mission and side-quest. But that is exactly what Far Cry 3 does. With a gigantic, gorgeous island setting to explore, baddies to shoot, animals to hunt, and sharks to stab, Far Cry is easily one of my favorite shooters of all time. Not only this, but the game also sports an absorbing story with intriguing characters and a charismatic villain, keeping you playing just to find out where the jungle will take you. This game is nearly perfect, and everyone owes it to themselves to check it out.
Far Cry 3 is a shining example of how a sandbox should be done. Not only are there a huge number of side activities such as hunting and resource gathering, but these side activities are necessary to expand your inventory and ammo capacity, among other things, encouraging you to complete side quests not for the sake of reaching 100% completion, but because they contribute to making you more lethal towards your enemies. Despite this freedom to romp off and screw around when you are in the mood, the story loses nothing for it. The characters are well developed, the protagonist actually changes throughout, and it all binds together quite well with the huge open world. The only nitpick I have is a spoiler, and hardly takes away from the experience. All in all, kickass game, perhaps my favorite free world game out there.
