I very rarely give a game a perfect 10 but Farcry 3 deserves it. The combat is great. You have your choices of being a sneaky guy with a knife or Rambo going in guns blazing. You have so many means of causing distractions and explosions which is always so much fun. At one point, I snuck into a camp, placed c4 and mines all over, and snuck out. I waited only a minute for an enemy to trip a mine and set off the c4. It went perfect and I instantly won the camp. And I usually don't have the patience for stealth games. The graphics are awesome. The characters are cool. I loved the fast travel and the replayability of the warrior trials. This was one of the most addictive games I've played in a long time. A must play.

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!!!
