Far Cry 3 is the latest installment in the Far Cry series which dates back to it's roots on the original Xbox ,and though it remains true to it's pedigree as a Far Cry title (great solid gunplay, immersive first person elements, vehicle driving, jungle setting etc), it treads new waters by actually being closer to a hybrid RPG FPS. An ideallic vacation goes horribly wrong for Jason Brody when him, his brothers, and friends are kidnapped by a gang of pirates that are terrorizing an island and held for ransom...Jason escapes and manages to hook up with a group of rebels on the island and embarks on a quest to rescue his friends & family and his progress from victim to victor (?) is a truely great story due to the terrific cast of crazies that populate the island..everyone is a little off in a very believable way and to be honest I can't remember a more memorable cast in all my 36 years of gaming..all in all definately worth a rent or purchase in my book..if you're still out there just look up the first 10 mins on youtube and judge for yourself...peace
This game is great. A DEFINITE BUY. Tons of replay value. Great graphics. Fun gameplay. GREAT STORY. This is the best FPS this year, better than call of duty or halo. The single player is what Ive experienced, ..havent tried the mp, mainly due to the stupid online pass that I refuse to buy! ANYWAY...LOVE THIS GAME.
I haven't had this much fun with a game in a very long time. I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Great gameplay, amazing story, and character progresssion is second to none. There's nothing like starting off a loser with no combat experience and turning into a killing machine by the end of it. Can't recommend it enougn.
