I have always been an RPG guy. not RPG in the traditional sense like Final Fantasy. I'm talking about real RPG's. the kind that just drop you in a characters shoes and say go bananas. the kind that give you the freedom to do things in whatever order you please. FarCry 3 lives up to this like no other shooter out there. With the controls and handling like Call of Duty but freedom like GTA or Elder Scrolls. Of course the idea of playing as a kid that has yet to realize his potential may sound cliche'. Heck it is cliche', but i promise you that will be the last thing on your mind while playing. some of the most mind blowing facial animation, beautiful island landscape, and heart pounding action. I have never felt like i am in the game as much as i do with FarCry 3. BUY IT PEOPLE! I am one who gets bored with games very fast but I am on my 6th play-through on this and i still love it. when you think you're tired of it put it down for a month or so. when you pick it up again it will be just a great as the first time. though i think that the "item" you get as you approach the second island should be given to you much sooner in the game. all in all this is, hands down, the BEST SINGLE PLAYER SHOOTER EVER!!!

I actually played Far cry 2 and hated it so much I didn't get past the first hour... was just BAD.
That being said Far cry 3 was a breath of fresh air...or I guess a stab of fresh drugs. They improved the game A LOT since the previous game by 10 fold. The story was pretty good and I enjoyed leveling up my character and doing the stealth take downs of entire bases...lot of fun. My only complaint is the multiplayer,You have to pay for multiplayer after you reach level 15.
Bottom line is It's a fun game with a great story,you'll most likely love it.
