Excellent

Great Game

This game is amazing. great acting from the villains. Gameplay was smooth. As to any game as you level up it gets better, easier and more fun, so be patient. People might complain about the driving but note that the developers tried to make the whole game as close to reality. On that note, there are parts of the games which makes you think how did that happen when you kill a few bosses.
Anyways the game adventure pack except for minor questions that will be raised but it's full of quests and things to kill time.

Monotony, incredibility and unnecessary length

First person shooters are slowly becoming overdone ever since the Call of Duty series has destroyed the genre. This offers nothing more.

It is unique in its idea, the concept and the story. Yet the delivery of this story doesn't make you believe it. A good story makes you believe and live the incredible, something that just isn't likely to be true or happen and yet, it brings you in it, immersed and believing. Far Cry 3 brings an incredible story line without the notion of credulous development.

The main objectives keep you playing, but the side missions offer no sense of motivation. There is no true story behind the side missions, the letters repeat the same despair and the relics give you no reward. The hunting is somewhat fun and the assassinations bellow the same methods. For this, there is monotony is everything besides the main objective.

The main objective will keep you playing, but remains to carry unnecessary length to it. The shallow meaning of the story line is a washed down, pseudo-profound sense of 'survival of the fittest'. The character development is prominent but not edible in any sense: there is no possible or feasible way this person would develop this quickly into a skillful killer. The man, (who looks like a weakling), becomes a master assassin within the moments of first violent interactions. The story is entertaining at most, but void of any true value. The dual endings are funny, but provide nothing satisfying. Not to mention the question: why didn't you ever make sweet love to your girlfriend during the game!? She's gorgeous and loving, moron.

I will give credit to the fact that they make it a buying game, since the length allows for more continuous play, which makes it a buying game, although I wouldn't buy it for quality reasons. The gameplay itself is quite smooth and easy to manage while the upgrades motivate you more. The concept is a clever idea to play with and unique in its own way; if only the delivery was better.
