One of the best games of 2012

This game is one of the best games of 2012 in my opinion. From stabbing pirates to Han gliding, this game has it all! The main character, Jason Brody went on a vacation with his friends. They all went skydiving but something went horribly wrong. They were all captured by a man named Vaas, who is going to sell them into slavery.

Jason manages to escape and vows to find his friends and kill Vaas. With the help of the Rakyat people Jason turns from an ordinary man, into a killer.

In this game you can kill many animals from the open clear waters to the darkness of a cold cave. Hunting is very important in this game as you use the skins of the animals you hunt to craft wallets, ammo pouches, weapon holsters, etc. You must master hunting to be able to survive on this monstrous island.

You can explore this island by going to radio towers. Radio towers can bring in new stock at stores, update your map, and other valuable things in order to survive on this island.

There is many other valuable things you need to know to survive but those are the most important. I loved this game and I know you guys will too! You may find it difficult at some points, but be patient and you will beat it! I gave this amazing game an outstanding 10/10

I haven't seen a game with a map so subversive since Just Cause 2. This game came beyond my expectations, the gameplay is stellar, story is great, it all around is great game.

Keepin' it simple. The game is entertaining, but totally overrated. Once the initial shock and awe wears off, you should be able to realize that the game is incredibly repetitive. The only thing that really breaks up the monotony of repeating the same kill side quests are the moments of Uncharted style set pieces.

Good villain, mechanically sound development, but just another typical shooter in the end.

It tries hard to pull you in, but if you look past it all, you'll see yourself doing the same things over and over and over.

Hence, good, but a bit overrated.
