When I first popped the game in (and after it patched) it took forever to get past the "Logging in" screen. The games multilayer platform seems to have issues so logging in can sometimes be a hassle. If you'd rather just play the solo campaign you could disconnect from your internet if your having the same issue I am.
Game play is good. I'd give it a 6.5/10. I had to turn up controller sensitivity to help with movement. Turning and aiming seemed to take forever. It plays like most FPS games, just with a few added character perks. (Much like Skyrim and FPRPG games)
Graphics are amazing. 8/10. Much like Skyrim, loading screens are a hassle and time consuming. If you get to moving too fast the area will blur out until it can catch up.
Storyline is the only iffy part. 5/10. Far fetched and a little weird, but enjoyable all the same.
Great game. I'd recommend renting and beating, but it's not a "buy and keep" game for me.

Yea this is Skyrim with guns, more so then Fallout if that makes any sense. This story is awesome the characters are great and visually it is beautiful. you can hunt and create, you can find collectables and take back this huge island, driving trucks or paragliding are both functional and fun. Gunplay works well and the controls are fluid. This is my Personal GOTY so try it, I bought first and could not be happier.
I played Far Cry 2 and believed it to be amazing but, Far Cry 3 had very little in the way of story line. It was from the start, very unrealistic. They tried to get the trippy drug aspect to justify it but I believe they failed miserably. If you liked Far Cry 2 Dont waste your time.
