Far cry 3 delivers a great open world experience. There's always something to do. From hunting animals to climbing radio towers and unlocking new weapons for yourself. The story of far cry 3 is also very engaging. I found myself interested to get to the end from the start. But sometimes the game makes you run to many errands and things just carry on. After a certain point the story gets bland. After the story there's really not much to do either. Lazy side missions and an even lazier multiplayer and co-op campaign leave you wondering what could've been, considering all the effort put into the story. Far Cry 3 is a great experience with some disappointment, but none to hurt the games core elements.
This game was far better than I expected. I have written reviews saying I do not care for FPS games before, but this game has such a great story line, great voice actors and villains especially Vaas, and great controls. While with most FPS games I did feel as if my character felt like he was short. Every FPS game I play it feels like my Character is either looking down the entire time no mater which way I move the camera or it feels he/she is like 4 foot 5, but all that aside this games story was so enticing to me after 2 days of playing I ended up doing a 17 hour straight run just to see how it was going to end, and man was it worth it.
Far Cry 3 is a really fun pretty addicting game to play, but there were several things I didn't like about this game. First, the story, I thought it was ok, I found myself not really caring too much about it and actually kind of avoiding it, there were several obvious plot holes, some of the later levels I didn't really enjoy too much and found kind of frustrating, and overall I found the story/campaign to be a bit too long. Second, the graphics, I know FC3 looks amazing on pc but honestly, people really need to get their eyes checked if they think this game looked good, there was a weird obvious black artifact I'll call it that would appear on walls and such and would change when you moved, the jaggies were really obvious as well, and every so often you would come across some object that would be sticking through a wall or it would just be floating in the air, the graphics hurt the immersion just too much for me not to care. I know what the 360 can do, I've played an older game Skyrim I thought that was much better looking graphically. That's not to say the game looked terrible as it was nice to see sun rays coming down and I thought they did a nice job w/ how underwater looked. Third, the AI, the AI is awful, everything from watching a guy run himself over w/ his Own car to watching a guy walk into a wall, and after a while I just took advantage of the AI when taking over outposts. Finally, one of the biggest annoyances I had was that body dragging is a skill and that it's not an included mechanic, another problem w/ the body dragging is that it was too easy to drop a body while looking around or to drop a body while moving it in general.
What I did like about FC3 was taking over outposts, this was def. the most fun part of the game and addicting. Overall, I recommend this to play as it is fun, but too many things wrong w/ this game to give a higher score and I don't think it's deserving of its current score.
