Far Cry 3 is an outstanding game, well worth the days that I have spent playing it. It's constant need to do something in the game will keep you as busy as it has kept me, from hunting exotic animals, to the mini-games and with the constantly evolving combat, you won't be left bored. 8/10 because there is really no replay value, but the first play through is downright amazing. The co-op could use a few tweaks, but other then that, I highly recommend this game to anyone who is interested.

Far Cry 3 is a first person shooter that throws you right into the action and keeps on giving it weather it's though zip lineing, shooting up a enemy base or fighting tigers with your bare hands its your chose. The game is mostly free roaming around with not that many story mission there are a bunch of side mission and alot to do which makes a farely long gaming experience. There is also great co-op story that every player should take a look at.

If your a player that really enjoys a single player experience then this is the game for you. The single player game takes place over two massive islands that are chock full of activities for the player to do. From hunting down animals to upgrade your supplies, gambling or racing to make money, attacking strongholds to help liberate the islands (note: if you want to get all of the achievements, or make sure your dude is beastly, do this stealthy.), search and solve puzzles in ruins to get hidden treasures... and thats not even counting the story.

The story itself ends up feeling quite lackluster compared to other games released last year, but the gameplay easily makes up for it. You'll get lost in the game in a heartbeat, i know i did when i bought it. But like that one fat guy said, every rose has its thorn.

And for me that was how shoddy the multiplayer was when i bought the game on launch. The multiplayer and coop is easily just as fun as the game. But ubisofts uplay system really makes it almost impossible to connect to a game with your friends. Me and my best friend ended up playing the same coop mission 12 times because if theres any hiccup it kicks both of you and makes you start over.

This ended up making coop impossible for us, and was ultimately the final nail in the coffin that made me sell it. Cause after single player... its all you have, and if it doesn't work....

But regardless i recommend that all of you try this game at least once. I know I'm getting it again from gamefly so me and my gf can finish the story and the coop split-screen.
